Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 6/8

Good morning, Kansas City Chiefs fans! We have a good day of Chiefs news for you. Do Succop and Haley have more in common than we know? How awesome is Arrowhead? Where can you find cheerleaders washing cars? All these questions (and more) are answered ahead. Enjoy.

"Arrowhead, oh my lord, does that place take it to another level," Romanowski said. "I remember going there for the first time as a Bronco and everyone warning me about what it was like there. What you knew about it was that it was going to be physical. You had better bring your big-boy pads because, if you don’t, you were going to get your block knocked off."

The NFL and its players held talks Tuesday in New York, seeking a resolution to the labor impasse.

Three people familiar with the meetings confirmed to The Associated Press that the two groups met. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the meetings were supposed to be confidential.

In an Insider piece, Joyner points to quarterback Matt Cassel’s struggles to complete long passes as a major reason why he thinks the Chiefs -- who went 10-6 and won the 2011 AFC West title after winning a grand total of 10 games in the previous three seasons combined -- could slip this season.

In our latest installment of Power Rankings, Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium was ranked as the fourth-toughest venue to play in the NFL. I totally agree. I had Arrowhead Stadium ranked fourth on my ballot.

The criteria I used were winning percentage at the venue, attendance, noise, atmosphere and any other relevant advantages.

Now a successful pro football player after an outstanding college career at South Carolina, Ryan Succop is probably remembered for a lot of things from his days in Hickory.

After all, he was an all-state football and soccer player at Hickory High.

But what some people might not remember is Succop was a member of the Hickory golf team that won a state 3A prep title in 2003.

Bill had gone to Kansas City to attend a Raiders-Chiefs game and, naturally, the conversation in the barber shop turned to football. Seems the barber was a die-hard Chiefs fan who didn’t take kindly to his customer professing his faith to the Raiders.

Now I am sure many of you have seen some of those Raiders fans who sit in the end zone, so perhaps crazy, whacked-out haircuts fall right into place. Being the managing editor of a newspaper, I don’t think Bill wanted to fit right into that group.

Hardaway turned Greenwood’s results at the 2010 CFL combine into a free agent deal with the Kansas City Chiefs. Greenwood, a middle linebacker, did enough to crack the Chiefs’ roster in his first year as a special teams player and recorded 11 tackles.

That immediately gave Hardaway a license – credibility if you will – among young, Canadian players seeking to achieve the dream of playing in the NFL.

So far, he has managed to infuriate CFL teams with his negotiating tactics, but at the end of the day he’s doing what he has to do for his clients.

The goal, while teaching students the basics of their favorite sports, also was to educate them about life skills, program co-founder Clark Gaines said.

"I know good times are ahead for Ohio State," former Buckeye Mike Vrabel of the Kansas City Chiefs said. "There's still a lot to be positive (about), not only with the players, but the coach that's going to be leading them has been ready to do this for quite a while."

Vrabel, who finished his Buckeye career in 1996, played on the Ohio State defensive line with interim Ohio State head coach Luke Fickell.
