Elway didn't seem to have any problem getting the Broncos to play for him. People could listen to Russell Wilson and confuse his confidence for arrogance if they didn't know him.

We can throw Young2Rice in the "questionable motives" category as well.
And people wonder why we hesitate to approve niner fans. Troll our board and go back to report about it.
Seriously? One of the reasons I have utter contempt for 49erswebzone is the fact that several times they automatically rejected my application for membership, and now I find we do (did) the same thing? Whatever happened to welcoming fans of other teams? I would have no problem with having a hair trigger on temp-bans, leading to permanent bans for repeat rules infractions, but this... I don't like it.
And don't we do exactly the same thing here as they do there? We have had countless threads here enjoying ridiculous things said on other boards. I personally love me some schadenfreude
when it's there to be had. It would be hypocritical of me to enjoy it here, and hold it against others for doing it in their house.
And let's face it, responses in this thread have been all over the rationality spectrum.

We didn't pass on Dickerson. We traded for the 3rd pick, Dickerson was drafted 2nd.
