And has no trade value in the NFL, these are the things I’d trade him for
- This pen with a laser cap so I can write straight without lined paperhttp://www.tuvie.com/laser-cap-creates-lined-paper-effect-to-help-you-witing-in-a-straight-line-on-blank-paper/
- An awesome noise canceling device http://laughingsquid.com/sono-design-concept-for-a-noise-canceling-device-that-sticks-to-your-window/
- Sweet payment leather shoes http://www.details.com/blogs/daily-details/2013/11/street-style-just-the-details-patent-leather-shoes.html
But really, I’d just settle for letting Boobie or Lamichael James return.
These are his career stats since 2011:
Total sacks since 2011: 38.0
Tackles since 2011: 121
Passes Defensed: 5
He has accounted for 5% of team tackles and 39% of team sacks (51% in 2012!) To say he is a monster contributor would be a monster understatement. But does his phenomenol contribution affect the way his behavior should be looked at?
If I walk into a restaurant and the chef makes the most amazing meal I’ve ever had, only for me to later find out that the chef is a drunk, is it within my rights as a customer to demand him/her to clean up? Do I have the right to demand a clean and sober chef when I as a customer am only there to purchase a good meal?
In the same way, what does Aldon Smith owe 49er fans? As a fan and viewer of the NFL, you the customer are owed an exciting and entertaining game. And if it’s your team, a win. As a 49ers fan myself, Aldon Smith owes me (as a viewer, the customer) a positive contribution to the team and effort directed towards winning (although I’d prefer he be sober for the long term success). He does not owe me the portrayal of a role model to show me how to be an upstanding citizen. I can find that on my own.
What do you think?
