For letting the Chiefs blackout. I'm making the journey all the way from Wisconsin to watch the game this weekend and you guys can't make a less than 30 min. drive and sell this place out!

I'm just giving you all a hard time. Look for me in the stands in my Derrick Johnson jersey. I'll probably be the only one there :bananen_smilies046:! Take advantage of what you have in the Chiefs. Yeah they are a ****ty team right now, but I would love to be back in the KC area heading to Arrowhead every weekend.

It was only about 5k tickets that didn't sell. Considering this squad's performance over the past three years, that's really not bad.

Clark REALLY ought to buy up those tickets though.

If people actually watched the games and looked at the seats, it's a lot worse than those figures. But like Marimba said, the Hunt family buys them all up so that we can see it on TV. However, that's not the case this time. The Bills game, there had to be at least 30k empty seats.

Yeah, they pretty much put everyone in the lower level so it looked good on TV. They called it the "ticket exchange contest" I love like they acted like they are doing people a big favor by moving their seats so it does no look so empty!! Thanks Clark!! At least :beer:

Did you get a refund for the price you paid, seems only fair that you would.

I agree...many more empty seats than those numbers reveal, I've seen those empty seats with my own eyes from one being at Arrowhead myself!

There were many empty seats at the Denver game too.

Maybe Hunt is in a Mexican Stand Off with fans...figures he's already bought some out and it's the fans turn...or he's making a statement to the fans, 'you don't buy them, you don't watch'...all speculation on my part of course, haha.

HOLY MOLY!

I paid $125 for ours, 2nd row lower level, about the 40 yard line, but we were behind the Donkey's bench, their side...still, great seats @125 IMO!

I bought ours on Ebay, back early September as soon as I heard they were retiring DT's jersey at halftime.

It get's better...the seller who sold me the Denver tickets, gave me tomorrow's game tickets FREE! Same seats...saying he couldn't sell them, so offered them to me. He said he went back through his previous sales to see who had bought other Chiefs tickets, which I was one of, and he noted my Ebay profile pic showing me in Chiefs gear, so said that showed him I was a loyal fan and deserving of the tickets as a Christmas gift! HO HO HO!!

Proof postivie it pays to be a loyal fan & wear Chiefs gear! It pays to pay it forward in life too...comes back at ya sometimes!

An unexpected temporary financial crisis brought about my X not doing what he was suppose to...made it impossible for me to be able to afford a ticket to tomorrows game. Especially considering other expenses during winter & at Christmas too. I was gonna have to miss the opportunity to share the experience with my friends visiting from Germany, disappointing them and me. Well, the Good Lord took care of it, guided a generous seller to my Ebay profile, and Arrowhead I am bound tomorrow!

YEEHAW!! GO CHIEFS!!

It is really stupid for the Hunts to take the position of hard sell when the team is on a 3 year losing streak and losing the most games in those 3 years I can remember. If the team was actually winning games I could understand but truth is, who wants to pay to watch a team lose when the weather is cold like it has been? This is the first season in 5 years I won't make a trip to Arrowhead but I want to go watch team that atleast doesn't get blown out. Being veryskeptical about next year, I think they will improve over this year and I say that because of the front office and Head Coach they have now. Maybe I am being hopfull but why not be, I love the Chiefs organization.
GO CHIEFS!

I hope the Head Coach, wakes the F up, and becomes a Head Coach!!! Because he has not shown me that he is a NFL Head Coach yet!

This is a business and we don't like the product right now, so either change it or we aint buying. How else are we supposed to send a message?
