at this time, the sell out record at arrowhead stadium coming to an end under this moron of a football coach would ultimately be a huge factor in reasons that edwards should be fired.

i know, it is a nice record to hold, but all good things at some point need to come to an end.

herm has done much damage on the KC Chiefs fan base. He has shrunk it significantly. We might finally see evidence of that if the sellout record ends.

They haven't had a sellout in quite some time. There have been tons of tickets for each home game going back 3 years now.

It's obviously not been enough of a ticket sales reduction to dump Queen Carl.

I guess I need to look into buying some tickets, I usually get mine free, what few times I can get them.

Because that went out in the seventies and all those hippies that used to do that are old and saggy, and no one needs to see that.

I believe though that there have been few enough that the local tv station bought them out so as not to have a blackout, I was reading this in a KC Star article the other day, at this point the number is growing to where they wont bother it wont be worth the amount of money they spend on tickets just so they can show the game. Even with the increased ad money they still would lose money buying the seats.

There is a difference between a sellout and selling enough to lift the blackout though.

Lifting the blackout only requires 95% capacity if memory serves.

This I believe is a necessary step towards the demise of the Queen Carl era!

And creates a philosophy of losing which can take decades to overcome.

Boo!

last year the last three home games came close to blackouts and the tv stations didnt buy up the tickets. the chiefs PR people sold packages real cheap to groups like teacher groups,police groups ect to keep them from blacking out.

Most seats are already paid for by season ticket holders. Just beause seats are empty doesn't mean they aren't paid for.

Interesting response I found elsewhere on the same topic....



In August, it was anger and outrage over Huard starting, because all Carl ever does is play for a 9-7 season so that the stadium will stay full. He had no interest in playing Brodie and going through a bad season to let him gain experience because it might result in empty seats, and we know that's all that matters to Carl.
In November, with a bad record, Brodie at QB, a rookie RB in the backfield, a rookie as our #1 WR, it's "stop going to the games". Which would send a message straight to Carl that fans have no interest in watching young players during a bad season, and will only reinforce that his annual 9-7 plan is the way to go.
You truly have to stop and take a moment to appriciate irony at this high a level. It doesn't come around that often.

Now that you put it that way. Hmm makes you think.
