IRL People Ignoring/Unfriending over Chiefs talk.
 
There is about 3 people I know on FB that I have had spirited conversations with since December. They have argued with me over the drafting of Geno and have gotten quite butthurt over it when I continually posted why we should draft Geno. I noticed they haven't replied to any of my posts recently, so I decided to investigate. Turns out, they unfriended me over this shit, people I have known for 20 years! Anyone else have experience with idiots like this?

Anyone that wants to draft Jekyll doesn't have enough common sense worth being friends with anyway.

If you're going to propose drafting a tackle over a quarterback after the last few years, you have to expect that you'll lose some friends.

This probably isnt thread material but I will play along. I lose followers on twitter everyday from idiot Chiefs fans that don't know what the **** is going on.

Good luck with the thread...

Why do you feel it is so important to argue with them? I usually bow out of FB discussions when they get lengthy or divisive.

I would personally not unfriend you unless you went on and on about it all the time in an annoying fashion. Having a different opinion would not be an issue but people manage their personal social platforms in different ways.

Doesn't make them idiots.

I am not claiming they are idiots because they argue or have a different view point. I am saying they are idiots for ignoring me over trivial sports talk. I am not flooding my newsfeed with this stuff. It's an occasional stat, fact, or anectodote on the topic. I try to do something else other than post crap about pregnancies/stupid pet antics ect. No need to unfriend me due to differing of opinions.

WayneBowe 02-04-2013 04:44 PM

Trying to talk Chiefs, or sports for that matter on Facebook is pointless really. Facebook in general is pointless.

Nah, just astonished at the close-mindedness of individuals. Just because you put on your ear-muffs and scream doesn't make the reality of the situation go away.

I try not to discuss anything Chiefs related on FB because it's almost impossible to actually have an intelligent discussion. It's filled with people that don't like Geno Smith because they compare him to Jamarcus Russell or Vince Young.
