Hey everyone. I'm the artist formerly known as go_saleaumua. I wanted to take this opportunity to create a fanpost of my very own, and dedicate it to my favorite topic...
As many of you know, our quarterback is somewhat controversial around these parts. Even bringing the guy up results in some form of paint-huffing, mouth-breathing psycho fit by folks who either a) think he is the best QB this team has ever had or b) think that he's Matt Cassel's brother by another, wealthier, mother.
You know exactly what I'm talking about, right?
Anyway--to the point. Were you looking for a place to vent about this guy? This #11 guy? Did you offend one of our other posters with your passionate support of the team's starting QB/your passionate disgust for the team's 2013 & 2014 second round pick? YOU CAN COME HERE. Say the things you've been trying to say, semi-coherently, for the last fourteen months. It's OK if you feel....
* like Smith is completely underrated by the media, Niners fans, and Chiefs fans
* like this team has wasted an opportunity to make themselves better by adding Smith instead of picking two younger players for less cost
* like Smith will receive a contract that'll allow KC to keep its key players going forward, while still enabling Reid to innovate his version of the Pistol-West Coast hybrid on offense
* like Smith's contract will prevent this team from signing any of their essential players going forward, forcing the club into another extensive rebuild while he ages
...you can say all of that, and more, right here. You don't have to worry about people getting pissy because you "turned this nice back and forth about (Jamaal/Tony Moeaki/Pioli's drafts/Eric Berry/trading picks/Reid's shirt size/etc) into another Smith discussion." They won't do that here, you see...because this is the place to have those discussions.
Hey! If you're in another thread, and you feel a Smith attack coming on....STOP. Redirect here. Continue!
Wow! If you're in another thread, and your fellow AP'ers start to go down the Smith wormhole...STOP THEM. Redirect them here. Then they can continue!
Boom! If you're on Niners Nation, and they begin bringing Smith up, STOP THEM. Redir...well, you get the drill at this point.
For those of you that come here to lurk, welcome. This is your Alex Smith Open Thread....may it continue for as long as Woody, stags, and the Thorman boys keep it going.
For those of you that come here to participate, welcome. And may God have mercy on your souls.
