 Good morning. Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy.

Take the money saved by firing all those long-term Chiefs employees, along with the money not spent on free agents, plus the money not s pent to pay workout bonuses and Hunt should have a nice little lockout nest egg to see him through a lockout created by the owners.

Instead, he’s cutting the salaries of secretaries and other low-pay employees, and taking even larger slices from scouts and coaches who make more money and for the most part give up their lives in doing their jobs for the franchise. That’s some loyalty being shown everyone in the building.

Sadly, there are plenty of other owners that have made similar short-sighted decisions, so Clark Hunt has a lot of companions sharing that management dunce cap as they keep crying wolf.

Mackovic told the Yucca Valley High School athletes goal setting is an important part of success on the field and in later life, but once a goal is set one must take the necessary steps to achieve it.

Unfortunately, this Denver Bronco season ticket holder no longer lives in the Denver area, but that also opens up the opportunity to see the Broncos play when they wear white visitor jerseys, instead of the blue home jerseys.  The NFL stadium closest to my home is Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Broncos’ AFC West rival, the Kansas City Chiefs.  As a Bronco fan, visiting Arrowhead Stadium when the Broncos play is kind of like attending a party that you’re not invited to!

Thomas Jones, a star running back with the Kansas City Chiefs, joined forces as SOSA's spokesman last year, and since then has delivered his safety message to school-age children, met with members of Congress to encourage their involvement, and taped several audio and video public service announcements.  Jones, whose parents were coal miners in southwestern Virginia, admits to the lure of mine exploration during his early years.
