Was heart-breaking... not because I hate the Raiders or the Seahawks (I'm indifferent to both) but because it just sucks to lose the face of your franchise to another team.
It's gonna suck to see Simon in a Riders jersey.
I hated it when we traded Claremont... this is much worse from a fan perspectinve. And it's not even like his skills were diminishing that much, either. Bleh.
Ugh. Don't remind me.
Business is business, and it's all too common today to see the above (and Montana in that ugly Chiefs Uni), and that's why it would have meant all the more to see Geroy retire a Lion.
At least in Montana's case, you can only have one starting QB, and that was Young. And Rice signed to retire as a Niner, albeit ceremonially.
And none of these guys were traded; they signed as FAs. Makes a difference when you don't live up to the contract you and your franchise player signed and shook hands on.
