KC Chiefs owner Clark Hunt released a statement on Wednesday defending Chiefs fans, something a lot of people hoped and/or expected to see happen. Read that statement here.
Below is a collection of the reactions to Hunt's statement...
Interesting times in Kansas City. Clark Hunt's statement is strong. It's very... activist of him. Don't want anyone judging Chiefs fans.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 10, 2012
Not a bad start, Clark Hunt. But people still want to hear more. kcchiefs.com/news/article-2…— Sam Mellinger (@mellinger) October 10, 2012
Love that Clark hunt released a statement. However, what did the other Clark think?— Bob Fescoe (@bobfescoe) October 10, 2012
Good job by Clark Hunt issuing a statement supporting #Chiefs fans. At some point he'll have to talk about Chiefs football but it's a start.— Danny Parkins (@DannyParkins) October 10, 2012
Clark Hunt's statement should've read: "I realize the cheers were directed at me. I apologize we haven't put a better team on the field."— Mark Carman (@thecarm) October 10, 2012
Despite the length or that it's four days after incident, that statement from Clark Hunt was needed. #Chiefs— BJ Kissel (@bkissel7) October 10, 2012

Top Spin, Herbie Teope: "It’s the story that apparently won’t go away quietly. But that’s what often happens when national media far removed from Kansas City decide to sink their teeth into an issue made very public by Chiefs right tackle Eric Winston following Week 5’s loss against the Baltimore Ravens."
ESPN Bill Williamson: "Hunt's statement didn't mention Winston, who is in his first season with the team, and I would guess his beef is not with the player, but the attention it caused. I'm sure the statement was released to ensure fans the team supports them and to put the situation to bed. Winston said he has moved on and now all we can do is wait to see the fan reaction when the 1-4 Chiefs return to Arrowhead Stadium on Oct. 28 against Oakland."
