"Watered down schedule"? Deliberately made your schedule harder? Is that what your excuse is going to be next season if you don't do as well? Maybe you should read the thread in the Shack about all the whining Hawk fans crying about the schedule.
Don't pretend to act like you know anything about me, I was watching the 9ers before your team came into existence.
Find me one post on any team forum where I have personally wish harm to any of your players. Should I judge you based on the some of the ignorant statements made on this site? Like the one where a member here said "I hope your plane crashes coming back from Green Bay"
Stop taking things so personally, I wasn't trying to flip anything on your fan base. Just pointing out what I consider human nature. Your fan base will tolerate more from your own players then they will from someone else's. Especially 49ers, obviously based on the number of 49er related threads.
Face it, no ones team is immune, and until your team can walk on water It can happen any team anytime. Be careful where you throw rocks.
Oh look at the butt-hurt.
No group takes on the image of its exceptions. Unfortunately for Niner Nation you are one of the exceptions.
Excuses for not doing well? You and Marvin have been doing that for as long as you have been here. The Niners have done nothing to gain ground on how the Hawks play football, zero. I wouldn't assume that the Hawks will be any less successful in 2014, certainly not for anything the Niners have done.
Niner fans said all the same garbage last offseason. "Now the Seahawks won't sneak up on anybody" "let's see how they play with a target on their back" "PEDs suspensions from all the cheating players" "Russell Wilson will regress, Lynch will miss 4 games, The Hawks can't play on the road". Those are the things that Niner fans used as their last predictions of Seattle demise. Then they won the Super Bowl. Now they are reaching for RWs divorce as a hopeful downward spiral.
But Niner fans know all about excuses. Every time they play the Hawks there is mention of a league conspiracy, Seahawks cheating, pumped in crowd noise or Paul Allen paying off the league.
The Niners best DE is in deep shit with those gun charges. Niner fans keep focusing on the purchase (which isn't hard to prove in a gun transaction) when the real issue is that he was in possession of 3 assault rifles that are not registered with CA. Undeniable facts. That much is KNOWN. There is no technicality, nothing that can change that. CA can make the laws they want and it is the owner's responsibility to know them. There is no "oh he just didn't know" argument. The constitutional argument is not going to fly either, otherwise all the other guys found guilty would win their appeals and there has been a bunch of those convicted with cleaner situations than Smith.
Aldon does not fit into ANY of the legal arguments for possession. His ONLY hope would be an illegal search, but that would already be established and the charge would have been dropped. I think it is a shit law, but it is clear as crystal to a Cali gun owner. Dude is in hot water no matter what anyone wants to believe.
Oh.. and I have known the Niners well since before the Hawks were a team too. Doesn't that make me just as much as a Niner expert as you?
