Take your emotion out of it. Think about Alex Smith and where he stands. The power has shifted from the Niners to him. The Niners, unless they are crazy, need Smith. So his agent, Condon can act as the advocate for a wronged player and ask for more than the Niners were willing to give. He can put the screws to the Niners. He should. Smith can benefit from Manning going to Denver. He should because the Niners need Smith.
