Lockout Thoughts From A Chiefs Fan

This was a comment I recently posted on Bob Gretz's web site. Obviously this is my first fan post. So be kind.

I’m not a patient person, although I am surviving the lockout of 2011. The NFL is the goose that lays the golden eggs. The TV networks are feeding that goose the finest prime rib nestled inside a platinum bun. Everybody likes to make money including me.
I love football, especially Chiefs football. Why should I care if the average player earns more money in a year than I will in my lifetime. Why should I care that the average NFL owner earns more money than the GDP of most foreign countries. Why should I complain that since March of this year I’ve been reading about a bunch of guys figuring out the best way to get the bigger piece of the NFL pie. Why should I complain about the ever increasing cost of fuel, food, NFL tickets and related merchandise. Why should I complain that I have good friends that are unemployed, that taxes keep going up & that politicians have grown forked tongues.
I’m not asking for much. I’m a simple man. I pay my taxes, work hard, stay out of trouble and always trying to do whats right. I love my family, my country and my God. Why is it that since March a million guys like me have been worried about what we’ll be watching on Sundays this fall and winter. I really can’t think of anybody that owes me anything. So why am I ranting?
I love football…especially Chiefs football.
Now, make it so.
Go Chiefs.
