Loudest stadium in Seattle? Not if a group of Chiefs fans has anything to say about it.
Congregating in a newly formed Facebook group dubbed TERRORHEAD RETURNS, the fast-growing cadre of red-and-yellow-clad fans is hoping to counter a group of Seahawks backers who are attempting to get CenturyLink Field into the Guinness Book of Records as the loudest stadium on Earth.
Kansas City Fans Trying To Top Seattle's World Record Stadium Noise Attempt from MyNorthwest.com
"I've been to Arrowhead. It's the 3rd loudest NFL stadium I've been to, behind the Kingdome and The Clink/Qwest/Seahawks Stadium. It's about 80 percent as loud as the Clink, so don't sweat K.C. Just make sure we break that record vs. san fransissy. Go Hawks!" wrote Kyle Mauhl on the official Facebook page for the group.
But Kansas City fans aren't about to go down quietly.

Denver, Oakland and San Diego each made moves, gaining and losing various players, adding even more intrigue to the rivaled matchups in the year ahead.

Chiefs' Gear Arrives At Western For Camp from The St. Joseph News-Press
The first sign of summer for the Kansas City Chiefs arrived Tuesday morning in St. Joseph.
Workers started moving the team's gear from the Chiefs' training facility in Kansas City to the site of the team's training camp for the fourth consecutive year - the Missouri Western State University campus. While rookies and quarterbacks don't report to St. Joseph until Monday and the full team three days later, a lot of effort goes into making sure the lockers inside the Griffon Indoor Sports Complex are ready.
Western Locks Up Food Truck Vendors For Chiefs' Camp from St. Joseph News-Press
Faced with a food dilemma for this year's Kansas City Chiefs' training camp, Missouri Western State University officials kept on trucking to find a solution.
Athletic director Kurt McGuffin said Tuesday that the school reached an agreement with two vendors - both food trucks - to provide food and beverage at the 2013 training camp. Previously, Hy-Vee provided the on-site dining options during the team's two-week-plus stay, but the grocery store pulled its service for this summer following last month's release of the schedule, which calls for almost exclusively early morning practices.
13 Burning Questions For The 2013 NFL Season from USA Today
Which new coach has the best chance for an instant turnaround?
The easy pick is Reid, who inherited a Kansas City Chiefs roster that produced six Pro Bowl picks last season but went 2-14 under Romeo Crennel. The biggest issue was shoddy QB play, and new GM John Dorsey moved swiftly to address that issue, acquiring Alex Smith from the 49ers. The Manning-led Broncos may have a strangehold on that division, but it's not as if the AFC is brimming with wild-card front-runners.
Commentary: Tampa Bay Buccaneers Are NFL Summer League Champions from The Bradenton Herald
Schiano rips out the rankings, walks over to those players -- who can barely see with all the sweat dripping down their faces -- and shows them their status, which has them below the Kansas City Chiefs and Detroit Lions.
It's the mother of insults, and Schiano has to be loving every minute of it.

Camp Preview: Concerns Surround AFC Quarterbacks from Lindy's Sports
Kansas City Chiefs - Weapons for QB Alex Smith.
Smith's assimilation into a new offense - and vice versa - was slowed by the offseason absence of tight end Tony Moeaki and limited participation by wide receivers Dexter McCluster and Donnie Avery. Free agent Anthony Fasano and rookie draftee Travis Kelce got the snaps with the first offense. McCluster (hamstring) and Avery (ankle) are key players and must make up for lost time.
Gauging Offseason Moves In The NFL from The Japan Times
Kansas City - Andy Reid's pass-first West Coast attack is perfect for the talented offensive personnel he inherits as the Chiefs' new coach.
Electric Jamaal Charles should flourish - and avoid further injury - catching more aerials out of the backfield.
2013 NFL Preseason Power Rankings from The Pigskin Report
11. Kansas City Chiefs- Most people are going to see this as a stretch at this point, but I feel that the Chiefs will be the most improved team in the NFL this season with the addition of QB Alex Smith and head coach Andy Reid. They should win 10 games.
Cue One Tiny Violin: No Long-Term Deal For Albert from Fox Sports Kansas City
Albert is hunky, the Kansas City Chiefs are dory, and nobody loses. The club has the veteran left tackle right where they want him -- here, for the moment, with no promises beyond that. Albert is 28, but it's an old 28, and he's now afforded a chance to prove to Andy Reid, John Dorsey, Justin Bieber and the rest of the free world that his back problems of 2012 were a fluke rather than a harbinger of decays to come.
