The Kansas City Chiefs and the National Anthem

In between discussions about training camp, Dwayne Bowe and Priest Holmes, I figured I would throw out a topic that many opposing fans criticize the Kansas City Chiefs for- singing "Home of the Chiefs" at the end of the national anthem instead of "Home of the Brave". Personally, I think it shows disrespect to the national anthem and what it stands for to change the actual words of the song. Plus, in this day and age, it has to be considered an especially egregious faux pas to denigrate anything patriotic. I have zero historical knowledge on why this practice started but I certainly wouldn't mind seeing it end this season.

I know I'm on the opposite side of the fence than a lot of Chiefs fans on this issue. I've attached a poll so make sure you click through to vote. I get the same rush yelling out "Brave" that I do when I yell out "Chiefs". We're better than that and should have the class to stop this unnecessary tradition.
