*******

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.

Marty's interview regarding Save Our Chiefs must have many at One Arrowhead Drive feeling very uneasy now. They want to believe this movement is just a few drunk/crazy fans... the interview today proved that is not the case.

Great interview Marty. Having an intelligent, well spoken voice to the movement adds so much credibility to it. Too bad the two radio guys came off as mouth breathing idiots.

I rarely hear chiefs commercials on my radio station, nor have I heard them pimp the military members before. Or I could hae just missed it. In the past.

But they just had a commercial with lenny. Basically our fans have been with usthrough good times and bad, we have great fans and come support our military members against cinci.

They seem worried.

I heard that commercial early this morning as well and had a similar thought. The Blackout definitely has enough of their attention that they felt the need to put their own message out there for that game.

I'm going to be in KC over night on Saturday so I would not have to make the 3 hour trip and I have season tickets, but I just can't do it. I'm to tired of watching the Chiefs get blown out I just can't stomach it anymore. I refuse to give this organization anymore of my hard earned money until they fix this joke of team.

They're threatening physical violence on Clay should he come to Arrowhead and watch a game. They're emotional about the shit fest this team gives them, and they're taking it out on us.

How dare you take away their party?!!?!?!

Seriously....**** these people. They want to bitch and moan about the fans who cheered when Cassel went down....but they're threatening violence on fans who are voicing their opinions.

What a ****ing embarrassment. To actually threaten violence in defense of the current regime. I can't begin to wrap my head around that level of stupidity.

They actually agree with our message. I have only seen 1-2 people defending Pioli. They just think we're committing sacrilege by coming to Arrowhead in black gear, instead of red. They're overly dramatic, and I've told them as much.

I think I said something like, your choice to be a fan. Get a clue.

Those are the people who use that bullshit line of "Would you wear black to church?" or "Only the Raiders wear black!".

Funny how these people will scream that it's just a game.....but god forbid you wear black to a game.
