As a Broncos fan I am shocked to see so many empty seats at Arrowhead.

The crowd is trying to make noise but it sounds as loud as Denver's crowd last week.......At San Diego!

The Chiefs and the fans are at an all-time low.

Ummm you may be right. I was comparing K.C. to Denver.

I guess it's full compared to St. Louis. My bad.

I would still rather be a Chiefs fan than a Broncoes fan Mcdaniels little joy ride is going to come to an abrupt end. I always knew Broncos fans are idiots because Iu went to a game at mile high and they won by a FG in overtime and acted like they done something lol

As with every team in the NFL modern day, including your Bronco's...there are diehard fans and bandwagon fans...the Chiefs fan base is no exception to this fact of human nature. A team has a losing season, it will lose fan support...the more losing seasons, the more loss of support.

I guarantee that when the Bronco's have their turn under the black cloud of losing...your fan base will diminish as well. Every team in the NFL will have losing seasons, providing they're an honest team...and your Bronco's are no exception...your time will come. What goes around, comes around...guaranteed.

There are diehard Chiefs fans, then there are part time Chiefs fans. Some Chiefs fans like me, and all those who post regularly here at Chiefs Crowd...never dwindle, or lose hope deep down. At times our hope is buried beneath our frustration over loses...however, even when we face losing seasons we remain loyal Chiefs fans to the core of our hearts, we bleed red & gold...forever.

The other Chiefs fans of whom you refer to...are a different breed of fans among a modern day society with epidemic levels of impatience...this breed of fan jumps ship easier than the diehard breed.

Win or lose...I would be at Arrowhead every home game if it was feasible...doing all I could to show team support and help our defense. Fan support is critical during a losing season especially, and it's a shame many fans don't realize this fact...united we stand, divided we fall. Empty stands only compound loss of team moral, as well as, give that much more of an edge to the opponent.

Realistically...the front offices should lower ticket prices in losing seasons, to help encourage continued fan support...most don't want to pay premuim price to watch a losing non-premuim team during re-building and transition seasons.

You do realize just because the stadium is not full doesn't mean the fans are gone. Most just don't want to pay a hefty price to see them not play well. Infact, from what I understand is the TV ratings are really high cause everyone is watching instead of going.

Exactly, and agree. The fans now not filling Arrowhead will return when the team begins to win consistently. In the meantime, the front offices (Chiefs Organization)...should reduce the cost of tickets encouraging fans to attend games during our transition and re-building seasons, of which tyically many games are lost.

Once a winning team begins to emerge, then they can of course increase ticket prices. Ticket prices should be based accordingly to a teams season performance. A team in transition being re-built is not a premium team and premuim ticket prices should not apply.

I would be at Arrowhead every home game, even with a losing season...if I could afford the tickets. Currently, I can only afford to attend a couple games per season.

Don't be mad at me. Be mad at your dwindling fan base.


If Denver was the 1-5 (right now) they were predicted to be your fan base would be dwindling, too. I have been on your forums all summer and read about the hatred of Josh McDaniels and how he ruined your team by trading Cutler but now that YOUR team is 6-0 you decide to bash another team's fans?? Please, KC fans have been waiting for another Super Bowl since 1969 and have been rebuilding for most of those years.
