It's an interesting point he makes.
This version of the Chiefs, this era of the franchise, has managed to make some people who dearly love the Chiefs, hate them. Want them to temporarily fail. You are pretty far over the horizon when you make people who profess love for the franchise hate this team.
And like that hiker who had to saw his own arm off with a pocketknife, we want them to fail now so they can survive.
Only Carl and Herm have taken this franchise there in my span of memory. I don't remember the early 80s, but we are near a low point for the franchise again. I still think Carl and Herm were the lowest, but this is a really unique level of fan alienation where passion still remains intact.
