View Full Version : Grunhard: "That team laid their a** down during that game."

He's on the radio confirming what we've long believed that the team quit on Gunther in his last game at Atlanta.

Not breaking news, but interesting to hear it from a player. He's laughing about how little effort they gave. Said he put on a Atlanta hat after the game just to bug Gunther...or something, he told some story of Gunther looking at him like "what a dumbass."

I used to think Grunhard was a decent guy--even a good guy.

The more I hear of his antics on the radio, the less I feel that way. :rolleyes:

Sounds like bitterness to me. Laughing about how they quit in a game...that's one way to lose my respect.

well, he was trying to compare it to how we played in Oakland yesterday....saying that DV gets credit for not losing the team...but once he started reminiscing he started laughing and describing how bad it was...yeah, not sure if I'd be laughing about it, but...

I can only echo what has already been expressed.

Grunhard used to be one of my all time fav's.

Now I just think of him as a clueless idiot.

I have no respect for him whatsoever.

If no one else can see through what Grunhard is trying to accomplish with this... I'll fill you in.

In the radio and Television world, Success is all about Ratings.

Grunhard is following @ssclown Fatlock by provoking fans to disagree with what he is babbling. This way his ratings increase by people calling his talk show, e-mailing him to challenge what he is saying.
Now if people don't react to what he is saying enough, he might try harder the next time.
What's the easiest way to provoke a Chiefs fan?
Talk bad about the team and laugh about it. That will get us everytime, especially since he was once one of us.

The only difference here is that Grunhard was a player on the team that bragged about quitting...Jason is merely a viewer of the game behind a plate of ribs.

Yup, exactly. Its not like people are going to call in and say, "No. You didn't Quit in that game..." It's just sad.

I find it funny that people are blaming Grunhard for Gunthers failure. Grunhard was a guy who put it all out there along with many others on that team until Gunther self-imploded and announced he thought about quitting on the team and then went spastic for the rest of the team. Sure the story is of questionable taste, but Grunhard is now paid to build ratings not build up the Chiefs. You want that follow Gretz and Dawes.

A careful reading of the thread and one will not find evidence of this. Rather, one would find people disgusted with the display of a former player of their favorite team laughing about how he and his teamates quit in a game.

I do not find that suprising or annoying, his job is to get ratings. Being controversial is how you accomplish that. I begrudge him nothing for using a factual situation to his career advantage.

I think we understand the "ratings" angle, Jim; most of us, though, seem to be of the opinion that his paid gig of being a Professional Asswipe is wearing some of the luster off of pretty darn good career. That's all.

If he would rather take the Joe Namath route to his post NFL career fine; but don't wonder why we won't think of him as Joe Montanna then.... :shrug:

I guess the dude's gotta feed his family though, eh? :rolleyes:

I do not interpret differently, I just feel Grunhard has a perfectly valid reason for doing what he did. I justify it as being reasonable given his career choice.

Yes exactly, it is not like he made Joe Namath money during his career. I very much doubt he is set for life.

This has nothing to do with being controversial or on the 'air' as a personality. Hell, had I met a ex-player on the street corner who I struck up a converstation with and he started joking about how they laid down against Atlanta that game, I would lose some respect for that 'professional football' player.

This has zero to do with ratings and zero to do with anyone here blaming Grunhard for Gunther's failure--which was your first attempt.

If he's not set for life, he wasn't very smart with his money. He probably averaged somewhere between $300,000 and $500,000 per year during his career, I bet. Over a decade, that's a heckuva lot more money than most people will make in their lifetimes.

Okay, one hint.

Take all of the letters and convert them to numbers based on their order in the alphabet, but in a base 13 system. Then convert them back to letters in a base 7 system. From there, you're on your own.

Uh...maybe I need Gaz to help me with this engineering problem, but how does one go 'backward' in circular logic?

I have no idea what your third attempt to defend Grunhard actually means, but for the 3rd time, no one is blaming Grunhard for anything, rather they are expressing dissapointment that he is lauging about quitting during a game. I, like a few others, expect better of 'professional' football players.

That is your choice, I do not. I expect them as media personalities to use their personal experiences to stimulate conversation and provide insights to the audience. IMO he has done both with his example and I applaud him for doing so. But of course I think Gun was a total miscreant as a head coach and any ridicule heaped upon him is for the greater good.:p
