I’m not going to lie; I’m not a big Rudy Niswanger fan. The Star has a new article about what fans are saying to Chiefs players away from the field, and he comes off like a bit of a baby. I wouldn’t go up to a player and chastise him like that, and I certainly wouldn’t drop expletives in front of his fam, but Rudy has to wake up to the reality of the situation.
In the mist of an economic depression, Chiefs fans are spending good money — money that some of them really don’t even have — to watch this team. Meanwhile, he is wealthy regardless of the final score. It’s Kansas City, big boy, and the NFL’s best fans will hold you accountable for that hefty paycheck you pocket after every game. If you had any of our jobs you would have been fired by now.
Besides, he has to be the most overrated Chiefs player in recent history. The days of praising this guy here on the Addict are over. I’m declaring martial law on Rudy gushing. No mas! I mean, the Chiefs started playing better when Rudy came out against the Raiders and Wade Smith slid over to center. I’m not the only one who’s said that either.
The guy gets hurt all the time, is the only center I’ve ever seen hold damn near every game and he couldn’t block 120-pound Angelina Jolie from scooping up some impoverished Third World child. I, for one, am glad he’s out for tomorrow’s game. The Chiefs would be smart to make that a permanent thing.
