Others are disappointed too. You're right, camp has become too commercialized, unorganized, too. The intimacy once experienced in River Falls is long gone.
I was disappointed when I went last Monday. The best part was tailgating with friends before camp.
Many who attend camp aren't even avid Chiefs fans. I see so many kids & adults both who don't even know who the players are when obtaining autographs. They're just getting autos cause they can for the hell of it. Most will end up in garage sales or the trash...they don't appreciate them like loyal Chiefs fans.
It's simply something for non Chiefs fans to do that's free entry, & free give aways & contests. Lots of people who aren't Chiefs fans go for the free stuff, nothing more. Family Fun Day is an exception with a $5 entry fee.
It may be presumptuous of me...but what loyal Chiefs fan goes to camp not wearing at least a Chiefs t-shirt, or sporting other team gear? I've paid attention, and it's those who aren't in Chiefs gear who don't have a clue about the team. No way to stop it though, but I would prefer they charge an entry fee...it will stop many who come just cause it's free & free stuff.
