1988! I shared a half season with a person although I was at that time a Bronco fan. After the first game at Arrowhead I was sold. I converted to the Chiefs and have had season tickets ever since. I live over 4 hours away from Arrowhead but made the trips faithfully. What a great run we had. I looked forward every year to seeing my beloved Chiefs. The tailgating, meeting people, making friends, seeing LAMAR every week walking by our tailgate, Being at the Bills game on the first Monday night game in forever and couldn't even talk to the person next to you because it was so loud!
The great wins, watching DT get his 100th sack against Elway, Seeing DT get 7 sacks in a game against Seattle only to let sack # 8 slide through his grip and get beat on the last play. The flood when we played Seattle. The great overtime win against the Steelers in the playoffs. So many players we would see at local malls on Saturday's signing Autographs. Taking my kids down to where the players came in before the game. You felt like you were part of an extended family!
Now the last four years it is all gone. No more players to be seen anywhere. CLARK doesn't show his face in the parking lot. (I have tailgated in the same spot every year and have yet to see him) Can't even win a game at Arrowhead! The announcer has to announce IT"S THIRD DOWN to wake people up I guess, nobody had to tell the fans of the 90's it was third down. The atmosphere is gone, the aura is gone, the arrowhead magic is gone, replaced with empty seats, visitor fans outnumbering chiefs fans, leaving disgusted, feeling distance from a team I love, a club level that is so embarrassing to see around the stadium, so much is wrong can really someone come in and fix it? Are we the new BROWNS? Are we going to suck forever now? Things have to change and change now!
Before I renew next year I need to see a owner committed to the fans! I want to know my hard earned money is going to a good product I can be proud of. PIOLI HAS TO BE FIRED! The Chiefs use to be a part of the community now they are a part of ????? Clark has to connect with the fans. Without us he has no product to sell. We can blame Matt Cassell, Brady Quinn, Romeo, Haley and many more but one man brought these people here. PIOLI is the common denominator, PIOLI is the cancer to this team, PIOLI is destroying the fan base. PIOLI is destroying the team I fell in love with. I will not support this product anymore with him in charge. I will save my $4,000. a year and do other things with it.
