Yeah poor Aussie is gonna be crushed. i remember when I was his age, my Braves let go of my favorite player David Justice, and I was sad for months.
The worst part will be when the Chiefs play the Falcons this year and beat their as$es!!!
...for the SuperBowl win of course!! You piKCed the wrong team Tony.
I think he'll do well in ATL in the twilight of his career. I think ATL will have a decent season, but it'll all revolve around how their defense responds and if Matt Ryan can avoid a sophmore slump.
I'm still not picking ATL as superbowl contenders this year though.
GL Tony G hope you get a playoff win in ATL.
2 years in ATL and 12 in KC. Never forget the team that helped you become a HoF.
This really sucks. Tony is a warrior and that is exactly what the Chiefs need this upcoming season. I sure hope Pioli knows what he is doing. He is staking his reputation on Matt Cassel while trading away the teams top reciever who draws a double or triple team every play. I really hope it works out.
This really sends a statement that the new regime in KC is looking for guys who "want to be a Chief"-- as both Pioli and Haley have said several times.
I hate to lose Tony but it is nice to have management and a coach that says what they mean and means what they say instead of the double-talkers they replaced in Herm and Carl.
I sure hope Tony finds what he's looking for in ATL and gives Falcons fans more to be excited about after making the playoffs just last year. Chiefs fans need something to be excited about as well, though. Unfortunately, we have some more waiting to go for that because it's going to be tough to get really excited about anything until we start winning again.
This here's called the Show-Me State. It's all just talk, trade-rumors, mock drafts, and news stories until the Chiefs show the world what they can do this fall.
No offense to Tony, but I'm not rooting for Atlanta. I'm rooting for KC, and the hell with Tony.
Fire away, I don't feel bad about not rooting for a guy who only has a possible ring on his finger at heart.
I could really careless now that he isn't a Chief anymore :S dunno if this makes me a bad person but I always root against ex-chiefs. Wish them the best (always) but really want their teams to lose
edit: unless its like Morten Andersen lol
Sad day for KC. Best of luck Tony G. THE BEST.
Do not be surprised if the second round pick 2010 blossoms into more picks in 2009.
