Over at the Mother Ship, Josh Looney has posted a new video of Chiefs owner Clark Hunt speaking out about the new Nike jersey giveaway to season ticket holders as well as the celebration that will happen all season commemorating 50 years. It's clear that the Chiefs are setting a precedent for honoring their fans with the gift of personalized custom jerseys, but what's also apparent is that the Chiefs have several more ideas planned in 2012.

Hunt says that the fans have always been the heart and soul of Kansas City football, even since the very beginning. In fact, he says it was the fans' passion for the original Texans team that brought them here in the first place:

"I think for my dad it was always about the fans. The reason that Kansas City stuck in the back of his mind as a place he could bring his franchise is that he'd been up here to a game when the Texans were still in Dallas, still playing there. As he started thinking about the right place to take the Texans, he'd seen the tremendous fan support that existed in Kansas City. That was really the trigger for him."

Hunt says his own custom jersey will have the No. 50 to celebrate the golden anniversary of the team. Check out further commentary at the link above about the jersey announcement, the birth of the Chiefs logo and more.
