Supply and demand.
Not demand and I think my shits worth more than it is. Demand sets the market.
Bro go look at the Reid says Geno not out of consideration for #1 pick thread. There's a number of people saying exactly what I was saying. Reid isn't gonna come out and say they don't want Geno and they don't want the #1 pick because teams will low ball them.
Thanks for bringing up the Alex Smith example because even when everyone knew he was gonna be moved or released what did Baalke say publicly? He said the 49ers would not release him and he would be on the roster next year if a trade wasn't worked out. Same way everyone knows the Chiefs want out of the #1 spot they still feign interest publicly.
