Dude I think I made the comment last night at the Fox and Hound about the local Chiefs fans.

THEY SUCK!!!!

We were there for over 3 hours and saw more Broncos fans than Chiefs fans at the bar/restaurant.

The reason I am on this site is because there are better fans here than in KC.

This game was supported by the faithful, and I was very disappointed by the empty stadium at the end.

The Winnebago War and why Illinoisans are 'Suckers'

Gov. THOMAS FORD
A History of Illinois
CHICAGO (1854) It was during Gov. Edwards' administration in the summer of 1827 that the first Indian disturbances occurred since the war of 1812. This was called the Winnebago war. The Winnebagoes, Sacs and Foxes, Sioux, Menominies, and other northern nations towards the headwaters of the Mississippi had been at war with each other most of the time for more than a century; and the United States had undertaken to act as mediators between them and restore peace. In fact it has been the policy of the United States government latterly to compel the Indian tribes to live in peace with one another; for experience has shown that war cannot exist amongst the Indians without its being inconvenient and dangerous to white people. But despite all the remonstrances of the United States government, hostilities were continued and murders frequently committed. In the summer of this year a part of twenty-four Chippeways were surprised by a war party of the Winnebagoes and eight of them were killed or wounded. The United States commander at Saint Peter's caused four of the offending Winnebagoes to be arrested and delivered to the Chippeways, by whom they were shot for the murder. The white people had also a little before begun to overrun the Winnebago lands in the lead mines above Galena; many of the miners having pushed their searches for mineral as far as the Wisconsin river. This was a further source of irritation to the Winnebagoes. Red Bird, a Winnebago chief, was determined to revenge the shooting of the four Winnebagoes, and for this purpose he led a war party against the Chippeways, by whom he was defeated; and now returning disgraced and disappointed of his vengeance, he resolved to repaid his disaster by an attack on the white people who had abetted his enemies, and, as he believed, invaded his country. On the 27th of June two white men were killed and another wounded near Prairie Du Chien; and on the 30th of July two keel-boats carrying supplies to Fort Snelling, situate at the mouth of the St. Peter's, were attacked by the Indians and two of the crew were killed and four wounded.
The intelligence of these murders alarmed the frontier settlements at Galena and in the mining country around it. Galena, as a town had been settled about eighteen months before. Col. James Johnson of Kentucky had gone there with a party of miners in 1824 and had opened a lead mine about one miles above the present town. His great success drew others there in 1825, and in 1826 and 1827 hundreds and thousands of persons from Illinois and Missouri went to the Galena country to work the lead mines. It was estimated that the number of miners in the mining country in 1827 was six or seven thousand. The Illinois ran up the Mississippi river in steamboats in the spring season, worked the lead mines during warm weather, and then ran down the river again to their homes in the fall season; thus establishing, as was supposed, a similitude between their migratory habits and those of the fishy tribe called "Suckers." For which reason the Illinoisans were called Suckers," a name which has stuck to them ever since. There is another account of the origin of the nickname "Suckers," as applied to the people of Illinois. It is said that the south part of the State was originally settled by the poorer class of people from the slave States, where the tobacco plant was extensively cultivated. They were such as were not able to own slaves in a slave State, and came to Illinois to get away from the imperious domination of their wealthy neighbors. The tobacco plant has many sprouts from the roots and main stem, which if not stripped off suck up its nutriment and destroy the staple. These sprouts were called "suckers," and are as carefully stripped off from the plant and thrown away as is the tobacco worm itself. These poor emigrants from the slave States were jeeringly and derisively called "suckers," because there were asserted to be a burthen upon the people of wealth; and when they removed to Illinois they were supposed to have stripped themselves off from the parent stem and gone away to perish like the "sucker" of the tobacco plant. This name was given to the Illinoisans at the Galena mines by the Missourians. Analogies always abound with those who desire to be sarcastic; so the Illinois by way of retaliation called the Missourians "Pukes." It had been observed that the lower lead mines in Missouri had sent up to the Galena country whole hordes of uncouth ruffians, from which it was inferred that Missouri had taken a "Puke" and had vomited forth to the upper lead mines all her worst population. From thence forth the Missourians were regularly called "Pukes;" and by these names of "Suckers" and "Pukes" the Illinoisans and Missourians are likely to be called, amongst the vulgar, forever.
The miners in all the surrounding country upon the alarm of Indian hostilities collected into Galena. By order of Gov. Edwards Gen. Thom Tom N. Neale marched there with a regiment of volunteers from Sangamon country; a considerable mounted forced was raised amongst the miners, which elected Gen. Dodge to be their commander. The inhabitants fortified the town of Galena and Gen. Atkinson of the U.S. army with a body of regulars and volunteers marched into the Winnebago country of the Wisconsin river in pursuit of the offending Indians. The chief called Red Bird, with six other Indians of the tribe, voluntarily surrendered themselves prisoners to save their nation from the miseries of war. They were kept in jail a long time awaiting their trials for murder. Some of them were acquitted and some were convicted and executed. It was the fate of Red Bird, who is described as having been a noble-looking specimen of the savage chieftain, to pine away and die in prison, not from the fear of death, but by the gradual wasting away, the victim of regret and sorrow for the loss of his liberty as he had been accustomed to enjoy it in the fresh green woods.

yes, that is how the fans communicate with the Chief's organization. It is not like we can call them on the phone. So we talk with our feet, and when we want a new QB in, we tell them with our booooooo's. Fans do have a voice as they should after paying for a $50+ ticket.

agree to disagree. I think people in the KC area need to buy Kansas City Royals tickets and go to a few of the games just to boo the organization.

Just for the record...ok this is debatable since Huard was "hurt" on the play, but once the fans basically told Herm that they no longer support huard as qb by their boos....that is when he FINALLY FINALLY pulled him. Not a minute before the boos. Right after, on that same drive. Next drive, and for now on, BRODIE.

There are times when we've left at the 2 minute warning in the 4th quarter, but never if the game is close. The only reason for that is that we have a 2.5-3 hour drive home that can be extended if we don't get our butts out of the stadium. If I lived in KC, you'd best believe I'd be there until the very end every time.

Watching the game on tv, it looked like there were a lot of empty seats even before that point. Very sad.

It was my brother's first time at an NFL game. I tried to prep him for the excitement that is Arrowhead. He said he enjoyed the tailgate more than the game (of course, he's a Rams fan, if that tells you anything...ha). I was so disappointed for him.

I drive a 4 to 5 hours to a chiefs game, I do not get to go very often. I have been to some very good games, and some bad. Win or lose, I would never boo our team, and I would never leave early! Allot of times I wait in the stadium after the game for the crowd to clear before leaving just to soak up all of the what I can get by being in the greats NFL stadium.

lets say that herm still left huard in...and kept him in for the rest of the season. do us fans ever have the right to boooo to send the message? you all dont agree that we do.

Now personally I hope the Hunt family cares what the fans think. As far as the guys who run the day to day business aspect of it, do you really believe that they care you are booing or leaving early? You've already bought your tickets, beer, food and whatever else. They have you money, what does it matter to them if you leave early.

I guess I view being a fan a little differently, maybe because I've spent most of my life in cities and states that don't have their own teams. I think of being a fan is a little like being married. For better or worse, they are your team, you chose them. There are going to be good times, there are going to be bad times, but if you really love your team, you will stick by them through all the bad times. If not, then go find a team that gives you eveything you need, just like in a bad marriage!

I guess I view being a fan a little differently, maybe because I've spent most of my life in cities and states that don't have their own teams. I think of being a fan is a little like being married. For better or worse, they are your team, you chose them. There are going to be good times, there are going to be bad times, but if you really love your team, you will stick by them through all the bad times. If not, then go find a team that gives you eveything you need, just like in a bad marriage!


This is correct; the only thing that will get the attention of Clark Hunt is drastically declining ticket sales.

Yes they do care if the fans are booing.

They have something called pride.

and it doesnt make them look good when their team is on national tv getting booed.

you better believe the fans can have an impact on the owners/coaches. i guarantee you that huard was done no matter what afteer he lost the support of the fans.

if he wasnt "injured", he wasnt going back in because of the fans voicing their opinions so loudly.

So instead of walking out on your team, don't go to the game. If you can't stay and support them for the whole game then I personally don't think you have any business going. Stay home and watch it on TV! I traveled all the way from Utah to see the Chiefs play the Donkeys, the team I despise more than any other. Do you know how pain full it was to watch the Chiefs lose to THEM? The only thing that bothered me more was seeing all the fans walk out!

we need a communist country where fans have no freedom and are forced to stay in their seats until the end of the game to make those that are offended by it happy.

of course i am being sarcastic, is this really an issue what the fans should do? the fans should make their own individual decisions on whatever the heck they want to do in this free country. why does this bother you? it bothers me that it bothers you lol!!! good grief.

I did feel bad for huard when he went in and was humiliated with the boos. That was ENTIRELY herm edwards fault for his ignorance. He waited too long to pull him. Should have done it at the half but didnt and put huard in a bad situation. That is a bad way to start possibly your last game.

Once again, herman monster is a moron for his timing.

Eggsactly!

You tell him KCKAT!!!!!

It was disgraceful last weekend!

The fans at the bar and the fans leaving the stadium is not how the REAL Chiefs fans act.

I guess you and I just see fandom a little differently. I just don't see the point in claiming to be a supporter of a team, when you can't fully support them. You enjoy your freedom to negatively support your team all you want. I just hope you don't mind that the next time I'm at a game and you and any other fan leaves early that I voice my freedom to express what I think of that.

As far as being offended, get real. You'll have to try a little harder than that!:firedevil: BORING!

Drop in sales will aways get the attention of owners in any business. I would hope that the sell out of arrowhead streak will not come to a end. CP, like him or not, and I on the fence here, has filled arrowhead, and sold out the stadium for many years, I have been to a not sold out Arrowhead! I must be old :11: .

Therein lies the problem. CP sells out the stadium while fielding a mediocre team.

I just don't get threads like this one.

Everyone supports their team in a different way. People are different. It is America after all. Right?

Some of us support our team from home. Some from the stadium. Some leave early because they are disgusted. Some because they may not have a choice in the matter.

All of us love our team, even when we hate the way they do things.

I am not going to berate anyone here for cheering for the Chiefs even if it is a half cheer. No matter how you look at it, everyone here wants this team to win a super bowl. Same ultimate goal.

I want to quit debating good/bad fans and just focus on the fact that we all want the Chiefs to win.

like you said in an earlier post , You really arent that way in real life and neither am I . Emotions run deep sometimes when we discuss the chiefs ! No hard feelings . I tailgate with anyone ! I like Priest alot! And truthfully I would love him to break out for 1500 plus yards until the day he cant play anymore because he runs with passion , Something LJ has forgotten abou as of late AT TIMES. I just didnt like they way you went about being happy Priest was in . I want to watch Priest play more than LJ right now because I never thought I would be able to do that again ! But I dont want Larry to be hurt either . We need everyone we can get on offense . As we have all seen this year Injuries happen in the blink of an eye . Example: Colts . I hope we make it through the season with no injuries . Go Chiefs !
