Let's talk about "true fans"

Marcellus's thread was clearly a lot of attention whoring, but when it comes down to it, he has a point. The word "true fan" has become a catch-all for anyone who doesn't agree with a person on here about XXX player or XXX move that the Chiefs have made.

The issue I have with it is that it's increasingly become a straw man insult that doesn't even make sense. Discussion around here lately reminds me of discussions in D.C. where every issue has to be black and white and anyone who doesn't agree with you is an idiot. The reality is that there are opinions all over the spectrum and that nothing is ever black and white. I'd think there are at least five different categories of Chiefs fans these days:

1 - True "homers" who will cheer for the team and applaud every move they make unconditionally. These types almost don't even exist on ChiefsPlanet (though people like to act like they do). These are only a small portion of the Chiefs fanbase, and they look like this.

2 - Optimists who will always cheer for the Chiefs, but have a sense of realism about it. They probably cheered Cassel for the first few years, but reluctantly joined the SOC bandwagon last year when it was clear that there was just no hope in saving the team under Cassel.

3 - Fans who try to keep a balanced approach. They don't get too excited about drafting a RT at #1 or trading for Alex Smith, but they believe that it's likely the team will at least be improved this year if not dramatically so. Their approach is a "wait and see" reaction, though they'll be quick to criticize if things don't work out.

4 - Pessimists who are skeptical that the Chiefs are going to be competitive any time soon, but who do try and give the team some benefit of the doubt under the new leadership. They're probably not happy about Alex Smith being our QB, but are grudgingly willing to see what he can do.

5 - Total naysayers who have had it with the team for the past 40 years and will refuse to be optimistic until the Chiefs find some real success (playoff wins at a minimum, and Super Bowl contention ideally). They believe that the front office should be constantly scrutinized given that their predecessors were given a long leash and screwed it all up.

Anyway, I thought it would be interesting to see where people would put themselves on the spectrum. It seems like most threads these days are battles between 5's and 1's, but I'd bet that those types are actually pretty rare around here. My dream would be that we can one day have discussions that are dominated by 2's, 3's, and 4's, but who knows if that can ever happen until the Chiefs start showing success.

Discus.

Now, now, let's not get ahead of ourselves, Mr. Prostate.

The Chiefs could very well win the division dragging Alex along on his leash like a grass-crapping Labrador. It's very possible that a better-coached team with an attacking defense can win many games, provided said Labra-doodle is properly whacked on the nose with a newspaper as needed.

Honestly, I'd say anyone that has still stuck with this "team" is a "true fan".
Regardless of their attitude towards the team.

4 top 5 picks in the last 6 drafts doesn't exactly make the Chiefs fan experience a pleasant one.

This team is one of the biggest jokes in all of professional sports and the fans that are still around deserve awards.

No shit. Where's my "thanks for putting up with our inept bullshit all these years"-pendant from Clark?

The Bottom Line:

This is a season of miracles.

1) We will win the division AND keep our second round pick(s).

2) Alex will be clearly shown to be the useless fraud that he is, thus facilitating a quicker transition to a legitimate franchise QB, be it young Bray or whomever.

3) "Lil' Chiefy Day" will become a celebrated, national holiday, and it all started here. So, you have that going for you this year, Chiefs Fans!

Eleventy.

whats worse is that the only one of those top 5 picks that can really be anything special is eric berry.
other than that its 3 fat guys.

two d-linemen that couldn't get it done.

and one o-lineman that the book is yet to be written on, but even if he is a stud left right tackle it still isn't all that special.

Hardly. Your juice factor notwithstanding, you have fallen out of step with the CP consciousness and hold no authority, moral or otherwise here.
