View Full Version : Chiefs Tony Gonzalez frustrated

Reporters were approaching Tony after the game. He told reporters he was not speaking today when he turned around and saw them. Obviously something is bugging him.

Is it the record for most career receiving yards by a TE? I would be surprised if so. Don't get me wrong, I understand it was a home game as the Chiefs shocked everyone by winning their first game against our bitter rivals who were undefeated, and on top of that, it snapped our 12 game losing streak. But Gonzalez is not the type of person that would refuse to speak because of an indivdual record. It's only two yards...

Why do you think he refused to speak?

I'll call him up and ask. I'll get back to ya.

He might not have been feeling the greatest after that TD catch where he came down hard.

Because he saw Claythan licking LJ's ass in the locker room?

No way Tony's pissed about not getting the record today.

That could not have been it....

Wendler was busy deep throating DvD at the time.

I'll bet its not getting the record. He's always been a selfish prick.

Claythans been working out a lot, i bet he mixed in with the other players in the locker room.

But they knew he was an imposter when he had a woody in the showers.

remember, he had trouble getting up after that TD. he's probably just sore and tired and wanted to get back into the locker room and take care of himself.

2 more yards and she would have agreed to a 4 some

610 reported that he was 1 yard away and was upset that he didn't get a chance to get it at home on that last drive with the road game next week.

610 has to be running spin. It was a 1 score game at the end. If he's pissed we didn't pass to him so he could break the record at home, then he's a much bigger prima donna than I ever thought he was. It could've lost us the game.

Boo Hooo he should be glad he's gotten the damn ball as much as he has in his career.

If TG was really mad about that, he is much more concerned about himself than the team than I thought he was.

I remember him being interviewed a while back. They asked, "would you give up all your pro bowls for a super bowl ring?" His answer: "Do i have to give them all up?"

Every since then, I am not surprised when I hear stuff like this.

HE wanted to break the record at home. He gave up his body to make TD catch just prior, he knows he will break it next week. Why not be dissapointed? I would be too.

You guys have got to be kidding. I'm not sure how one can possibly try to paint Tony Gonzalez in a selfish light. He's given everything to this organization and this city.

Come on.

EDIT: Seriously can't believe some of the comments in this thread. You guys are like a bunch of wolves.

Here is a different view. If Tony wanted the record at home it's because he wanted to share it with the fans that stood by him and the crap-ass teams he's played on. He probably wanted to share that special moment with 70,000+ people. It's not about being selfish per se, it's about getting the record, shutting up Shannon Sharpe and raising the "ball" to the crowd as they chant his name. It would have been a symbolic gesture from Tony to the fans and then likewise, from the fans to Tony.

The chants would have stayed with him forever. Made a lifetime memory so when his kids are burying his father years from now they can re-call the scene at Arrowhead on September 28, 2008.

The guy has given everything every week. They could have given him a shot. I would be a little pissed too. It's not like he's gonna get shit else out of this season. I doubt we would have blown the game by attempting a pass in his direction. We probably would have scored a TD, and I think he hates Shannon Sharpe, and wanted to do it against the broncos. Can you blame him?

I think they should have thrown a safe route in his direction. He's earned it.

Sure. But the other 52 guys on that roster have earned a win after 12 straight losses. Could you just imagine what you'd be saying right now if Champ Bailey had jumped the snap, picked it off, ran it back and we had lost in overtime? Shit. Herm Edwards would need protection tonight.

I'm as big of a TG fan as anyone on this board. I'm just sayin, you don't take those risks IMO when the risk vs. reward is winning a football game/breaking a record.

I see where your coming from but there are routes that are pretty safe. Hell they could have run a TE hitch. I would bet on TG getting 1 yrd any day.

Maybe they should've found a way to run some kind of a TE screen for him. I really wish he'd gotten it today and said as much in the game thread. Everyone needed that win today, and I'm just glad we got it against the Broncos.

I don't think anyone can talk any shit at all on Gonzo at all. That man gives it his all all the time. Last year he fuggin destroyed his ankle and went in to get it re-taped so he could come out and try to stop the asskicking that we were given. The man catches Huards terrible passses all the time. The only time he has missed a game is when Huard hung him out to dry and he separated his shoulder breaking up the interception.

I can't remember him ever giving up on a throw, even when they are high and away and every LB in the league wants to put a hit on the man. When I hear Mecca talk about how he would be able to deal with Moss giving up on half the plays just to get the HOF numbers, it makes me sick that anyone would talk any shit on Gonzo when he leaves it out on the field EVERY goddamn game. Every one of them. Even the ones that were coached by Squirmin Herman.

If only he could of hung on to that pass in the first half that actually hit him in stride on the hands. Damn, you know he isn't going to get many of those from Huard.

If I were coach I would have thrown it to Gonzalez four times in a row if necessary as a special F U to Sharpe and the Bronc-hoes. Of course, Herm doesn't care at all about that sort of thing but he still should have given Tony at least one shot.

Any of you fuggin idiots that has anything to say about TG being selfish and not caring about the Chiefs are obviously idiots and should consider suicide...
