Hello Donkey lovers. Yes I'm the resident jackass over at AP. I have a collection of warnings and bannings that would make any moderator proud. Anyway, I was over here participating in the Limerick thingy between our two fanbases and I had a thought. A real one this time, not self induced. A thought about your fanbase as it manifests itself on MHR. Thought I'd share.
Look, here's the deal. I got bored one day. I decided to brows through the different SB Nations NFL sites on here. I noticed that we all say the exact same things as each other. We have the exact same mock drafts and the same bitches and accolades for our players and coaches. Which I thought was pretty funny. But I noticed that most of the sites I visited were lucky to have 8 or 9 comments per post. Many of them had 2 or 3 max. Which I thought was weird. I assumed everyone logged into SB Nation at one time or another and loved being passionate about their team with other players from all over the place. Like us Chiefs fans do.
I was wrong. Many teams have a very dispassionate fan base. We are just the opposite in KC. We f*n love our Chiefs!! No matter what. Hell or high water. We can bitch about em,' but no one else better. I think you guys know what I'm talking about. Because you guys are just like that too. It's refreshing.
I gained a notch of respect for you guys today. Which is a lot for me to feel about any other team or their fans. Especially you guys and our other divisional pain's in the necks. But you guys are good. You have posts that have over 100 comments in them. And not an open thread either. And a lot of over 35 - 40 comments per post. Like us it depends on the day but my point stands. It's a credit to you guys.
I guess I'll hate you guys less than San Diego and the Raiders from here on out now. Cool. Hey good luck on Sunday. I hope you need it.
p.s. - You guys have J-man too!! That's something to be proud of!
