    Im a life long chiefs fan but my father in law asked a good question during the athem home of the chiefs, who started it where did it come from i love it but a very valid question. Also why do ku fans say it before there games?

    It was started by Huey Lewis. He performed at Arrowhead singing the National Anthem at a game during 1994...he spontaneously replaced the word 'brave' with 'Chiefs at the end of his National Anthem performance. Fans loved it, and it's become a tradition ever since. :)

    The only reason I can think of that KU fans use it, is because a majority of KU fans are also Chiefs fans.

    I've been around, reading here & there sometimes, just don't always post. I'm at Chiefs Crowd official Facebook page daily, that Jeremy aka Coach founded a while back. He asked me if I'd help him administrate the page, so I keep my eye on all the injuns & squaws there, LOL. ;)

    As far as how I knew the answer, hahaha. For many years I've done alot of reading online related to the Chiefs of yesteryear & today. I had read about Huey Lewis a few times in various articles being the one to start the home of the CHIEFS at a game in 1994. ;)

    They sure do! In fact, more of my Chiefs buddies are Mizzou fans than they are KU fans! hahahaha
