    Cool story about a fan who wanted to change the Chiefs helmet. Thought I would share it with you guys.

    I agree, it would be cool to see updated unis.

    I don't necessarily hate it, but I certainly don't like it! I love the Arrowhead logo...it represents the American Native/Indian theme, and the honorable title of Arrowhead Stadium!

    I remember one year in the 90's, they thought about changing the color from a true red to that of a dark red like that of the 49'ers, and Skins. Marty and staff wore the darker red polo's & such on the sidelines that year...and some of the Chiefs attire sold retail was the dark red as well.

    It upset me enough that I sent a letter to Arrowhead management stating as a fan I was against changing the color. Red is my favorite color anyway, and our Chiefs red is by far the best and most notable team color in the NFL! We stand out with our red and Arrowhead logo on the helmet!

    "If it ain't broke don't fix it!"

    I don't like many of the teams contemporary logo designs, prefer the more vintage or nostaligic designs. Our Arrowhead logo is timeless and it doesn't need updated...EVER!

    KC red and the chiefs arrowhead logo are the classiest in all of football. I would be heartbroken if the color or the logo was significantly altered.

    One change that I think would be really cool is if we would switch it up so that for home games we wore red pants/red jerseys. I think the solid red on red would be awesome. The ravens do it occasionally with their black on black and it looks sharp.

    Absolutely agree with everything!

    There is something called alternative uniforms and/or helmets. I wouldn't mind seeing them wearing that helmet a few times a year (but they must make it look professional and modern with a few changes). It makes them look like Chiefs rather than some arrowhead on the side (which I do like very much btw).

    Oh heck no. Not red on red. I have seen that in video games and they look ugly. It just doesn't work.

    We just love RED!! hahaha

    Seriously, red is a very powerful color, one of those color's of which more often than not...less is more, so from a designing asthetic point of view...I agree with you...red on red would be too much. :)

    That's one of the most hideous, offensive designs ever. Nothing wrong with the helmets as is

    The headdress would be cool if we were named after Indian chiefs and not the Mayor of KC.
    Everything happens for a reason.
