For whatever reason, AOL Fanhouse continues to pay this nut fungus:
And he led all defensive players in Pro Bowl voting among fans.
So it's official: I hate democracy. In theory, yeah, it's nice, give the fans a vote in the Pro Bowl. In practice, sorry, the fans are morons if they vote for a guy who's out for the year and wasn't even having a great year before he was injured.
Pro Bowl selections are made by a combination of votes from fans, players and coaches. I don't necessarily want to see the fans lose their votes, but I do want to see them at least make some pretense of knowing what they're doing before voting. Otherwise, Pro Bowl balloting is a joke.
Seriously, what a schmuck.
Obviously, Dwight does not belong on the Pro bowl roster this year, but neither does Jason Taylor, Ray Lewis, and eleven Cowboys players (barf!). But you are a total clueless idiot if you don't think Dwight Freeney is one of the best defensive players in football. And if you thought that 2007 was a bad year for him pre-foot injury, you simply don't know what the hell you are talking about. From my vantage point, it looks like fans did something Michael didn't do: They watched games Freeney played in.
Michael David Smith = Total Dumbass Schmuck
