As those of you who have been members of AP for a long time know, I can be pretty opinionated regarding the Kansas City Chiefs. The problem is that sometimes I get a little carried away when I am trying to make a point. Earlier today, Woodman raised my awareness about a comment I made regarding certain members being drunk on the Chiefs kool-aid. At the time that I made that comment, I didn't really see the issue with it but, after looking at it further, I realize that I could have maybe chosen a different way to make my point. More after the jump (I always wanted to say that)
We all have differing opinions about where this team is headed, whether or not our coach can do the job, whether or not our QB can do the job etc. Just because I feel that the team isn't heading in the right direction or no matter how I feel about Matt Cassel (I think he stinks by the way) I shouldn't expect everyone else to feel the same way. No matter what though, I am the type of person who is big enough to step up when I am in the wrong. That is what I am doing now.
AP is great place where people like you and me can get together and discuss something we are all very passionate about. The Chiefs. In times like these, that passion can get away from you and turn into comments that could be construed as being over the top, negative, and overall just not conducive to an online community such as Arrowhead Pride. I think it's important that we are all aware that everyone here wants the team to win and we all want to be supportive of the team, and I promise no matter how my comments may come out, I am supportive of the team.
We are all frustrated, especially after the last 2 weeks. We all know there are issues on this team that may take a very long time to get fixed but, that's no excuse for being an asshole to other community members. I want to let you guys know that I am sorry for my lack of tact and I hope I didn't offend anyone. I will try to be more aware of it and nip it before it happens. At the same time, my opinion is still what it is. I still think Matt Cassel is an awful QB and I still question some of Todd Haley's moves. (even though I am actually coming around regarding Haley) I think we need some new coaches and LOTS of new players this coming offseason. That being said, I will do my best to be more respectful to other AP members because I know deep down that we are all in this together and for the most part, we are the only ones who really care about the Chiefs.
Let's get a big fat W against Buffalo this weekend-Go Chiefs!!!!
