Clark Hunt Knows Chiefs Need To Be Competitive In December To Sellout

Last year the Chiefs stumbled into December with a 3-8 record. The playoffs were outta the picture. Matt Cassel wasn't playing well. It was cold. 

Basically, it was hard to get up for a game that meant nothing -- and if you're not playing for anything in December, it usually means you're not very good.

That's why Chiefs owner Clark Hunt recognizes the importance of playing well in December.

"The games in December and January are tough every year to sell out unless you're a very strong playoff contender,'' chairman Clark Hunt told Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star. "I would expect we'll be in a similar situation again this year, but I still have my fingers crossed we're still going to be alive in the playoff hunt. That could have a different bearing on whether we get blacked out or not.''

Last year the Chiefs were a whopping 0-4 in December.

While on the topic of blackouts, how are those season ticket sales going? Hunt says they're down from 2008 when the club sold about 60,000 of them. After the renovation, Arrowhead will hold somewhere around 75,000.
