I know that Lamar and Carl take heat on this board, and rightfully so in some instances.
But this new regime has gone the **** out of their way to alienate the fanbase, media and employees and focus on ridiculous shit instead of winning football games.
Empty stadium? Let's charge $200+ dollars a seat in an area that provides you with no extra amenities other than being able to avoid weather. And then blame "the economy".
Need to take a piss, media? We'll be escorting you to the bathroom.
Your office face the practice field? Those blinds better be ****ing closed, or else.
Ticket takers and parking attendants get paid jack shit, but had always been comped tickets as a perk of the job. Not anymore.
Want to take a picture of the practice facility? Even if the team isn't practicing? Expect a security guard to demand you delete the picture, or he'll confiscate your camera.
Over age 40 and work for the team? Enjoy being systematically fired.
Rooms bugged, cell phones bugged, dozens of employees referring to working in fear, being intimidated.
Secret service guys roaming the sidelines, Chiefs employees making snarky comments on social media.
All leading to a 21-28 record.
Yep, it's my choice to be a fan, and I can guaran-god-damn-tee you that I won't spend another penny on this franchise until this regime is gone.
You hired an asshole, Clark - and he's making your franchise look even more inept than it did when your father ran things.
This is the makings of a fanifesto. I agree 100%. Each incident can be rationalized or explained. And I admit I've been a part of that because I've wanted to believe SO BADLY that we finally had the right leadership to bring a Championship to Kansas City.
I was wrong. We all were.
His first move was to bring in a QB who has been one of the least clutch QB's in the recent history of the NFL. And despite the building evidence, said leadership continues to point to the occasional rays of light emanating from the dog's anal orifice to say "See! He's the man. He'll get it!"
Then he got into a pissing match with one of the most respected men in the history of this franchise...because Scott was busy? Busy doing what, ordering Tyson Jackson's embroidered jersey?
Then in his first opportunity to reshape the team, he made a great decision to fire Herm only to bring in Todd Haley, a complete bust.
If you were available as a football player but Boston wasn't stamped on your passport card, forget it. It was the most incestuous time I remember since Deliverance.
The bottom line is this. The arrogance and entitlement that those guys brought in here looks a lot less like swagger and a lot more like a pathetic facade that is crumbling.
Clark, this city and fans love the Kansas City Chiefs. But not blindly, and not without demanding accountability for failures paid for by US.
