10% is donated back to us and we are donating 100% of remaining funds to charity at the end of the season.

*******

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(October 17, 2012)

Organizers behind the Save Our Chiefs movement have designated November 18, 2012 against the Cincinnati Bengals as the official Blackout Arrowhead game. Not a blackout in the traditional sense where the game isn't televised but instead one where the fans wear black to the game. Why a Blackout? To send a visual message that Chief fans are tired of broken leadership and subpar performance on the field. Black is a color commonly attributed to “mourning” which is the state of mind, play and spirit of the Chiefs fan base.

Organizers released this official statement on Wednesday, October 17, 2012:

"We, the donators and supporters of the banner and movement, have been accused of being fair weather fans. This is simply not true. We are passionate fans who live and die with this team on Sunday. If we were fair weather fans, we would have found something else to do a long time ago. Instead, we have gone hoarse by the second quarter and not been able to speak right the next day. We have painted our faces and worn costumes, even formed charitable organizations that have raised tens of thousands of dollars to benefit the local community. We have made life-long friends and are as dedicated a Chiefs fan as anyone else.

We haven't given up the team. We are tired of losing. We are tired of not being competitive. We are tired of seeing Arrowhead as a shell of what it used to be.

We who have been loyal for so long deserve better than what we have received. We have endured 19 painful years with no playoff wins. While it’s acknowledged that the organization has won the AFC West, as recently as 2010, they mean nothing when they are immediately followed by playoff losses. We have had a single appearance in the AFC championship game since 1970 (1993) and we lost. In 1984, the AFC Championship trophy was named "The Lamar Hunt Trophy". How sad is it that we have never once held the trophy that bears our founders name?

Thousands of us remember the desolation of the 80's and it is something we do not want to see repeated. Thousands of us remember going to games in the late 90's and early 00's and feeling the rumble of the crowd in our feet and chest. We would high five and hug total strangers after a touchdown or a clutch defensive stop. We remember being unable to talk to the person next to us on defensive 3rd downs... all because we knew that we could disrupt the opposing offense and inspire our defense.

Our goal with this movement is to create change so we don't end up forgetting those experiences. We ask everyone to attend the Chiefs/Bengals game on November 18 to wear black and cheer for the Chiefs. Send a message that Sea of Red will quickly change and disappear if change isn't made. Arrowhead will once again be empty like it was in the 80s.

You can wear it all year to protest Scott Pioli.

It's a great symbol.

Hell, maybe every home game after Nov. 18 will be blacked out.

And if Pioli isn't fired? Great investment for next year.

Man, this is a badge of honor. You'll be walking around for years wearing it and saying "I was there". I still have my "Share the Wealth" Royals walk-out T-shirt. Problem is I wore it TOO much and now it's really faded.

I'm buying it to wear it, and I'm buying it to be able to look and remember the time we as fans rose up and said "Enough is enough!" and invoked change. There's some pride to be had here, no matter what happens from here on out.

I LOVE this. Is there a time frame for getting my order in? I won't be able to order until I get paid. Also, I'm a big dude, does it come in -ahem- extended sizes?

I so wish I could be there at the stadium. I'm in VA and obviously can't be at Arrowhead but I want to show my support again. I donated to the banner and I will order one of these as well.

Thanks for all the hard work you guys are putting in.

When will I wear it?

When I shit. When I eat. When I ****.

Anytime I do something worthy of celebration I will wear this hoody and reflect on this righteous cause.

That's when I'll wear it.

Shouldn't the message be on the back so it looks black to the tv screen?

Also people walking behind could read it.
