I am a 37 year old, lifelong CHIEFS fan and Season Ticket Holder. So just stay with me because I already know you're pissed off because of the headline. But that's good!
Now that I have your attention: We, as CHIEFS fans, have proven we're capable of contributing to a movement and getting things done; whether it be Pioli or the Guinness Record, for example.
This SITUATION, and I do mean SITUATION, is no different than the other important causes we've fought for, recently.
'Worst 9-0 Team Ever' is what they're saying in the national media, so I say: let's embrace it. Let's embrace it and do something about it, again.
The more we put 'Worst 9-0 Team Ever' out there, the more prevalent it will become over the next week and a half, and we'll ensure it doesn't fade.
The more prevalent the 'Worst 9-0 Team Ever' becomes over the next week and a half, the more ground it will pick up.
The more ground 'Worst 9-0 Team Ever' picks up, the more pissed off fans will become (as if we're not sick of it already).
The more pissed off fans become and sick of hearing 'Worst 9-0 Team Ever,' the more the players feel it through social media.
The national media's already hitting them with 'Worst 9-0 team ever,' and Bowe played it cool, but I want our players so sick of hearing it, they want to choke anyone who says it. I want yelling at reporters. I want crazy, freaking emotion.
We all know Pete Prisco is a hack, and a CHIEFS hater, and Mark Schlereth is a Denver homer, but they're both on the record saying, "Worst 9-0 team ever."
So, I guess we're just going to sit back and take this disrespect?
NO. NO MORE.
I WANT PISSED OFF! WE ARE GETTING DISRESPECTED AND IT'S TIME TO TAKE IT OUT ON THE BRONCOS, NOVEMBER 17, 2013.
We want pissed off at Denver. We want Forest Whitaker's character from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, tearing them all a new....well, you know.
Sam Mellinger's article hit the nail on the head, because this isn't a figment of our imagination as a team and fan base. We can play the disrespect card because WE ARE BEING DISRESPECTED. It's very real and it's the national media's subtle, and not-so-subtle, way of saying, "the CHIEFS suck, and they're 9-0 despite it."
So, once again, it's up to us. It's up to us to retweet 'Worst 9-0 Team Ever' 1000 times, re-post this article and all other 'Worst 9-0 Team Ever' articles to Facebook, Twitter over and over. Repeat it like a badge of honor. Spray paint it on your car. Paint your houses with it. Make bumper stickers. Tweet it, tweet it again, and tweet it one more time for the sake of ensuring we go into Denver as pissed off as we can possibly be.
You, CHIEFS KINGDOM, are the best and most deserving fan base of a great team, and I'm proud to stand here with you. Let's show them how much we care, again, by reminding them: WE GET NO RESPECT, SO WE MIGHT AS WELL TAKE IT OUT ON THE BRONCOS.
Who knows, maybe November 18th, we can be the Worst 10-0 Team Ever.
