    Default Chiefs/Bengals "Blackout"


    0 Not allowed!


    That picture was from a link via the thread about Scott Pioli kicking someone out for having "Fire Scott Pioli" signs or handing out flyers...To me it says volumes.

    First off...Gotta say it...IMHO the whole blackout/wear black chiefs stuff thing is really pointless. Same goes for flying airplane banners. Understand it's their money & their perogative, but to me trying to convince Clark Hunt or Pioli how much you despise them while paying for $27 parking, and buying $8 beer or hot dogs is just not an effective message.

    But the empty seats at today's game, and all the lost revenue surrounding them...That message is the one that will hit home with Clark's accountants. There's no way someone will look at those empty chairs and not do anything.

    Agreed! Wearing black at a game does nothing! Its heart hurting to see a picture like this of arrowhead, just because the empty seats. but its obvious that is what will really make the change. I saw where you can get tickets to a chiefs game for around $10 dollars. some even less. What a disgrace! Im sure now that Clark is feeling it, but not because of "Black".

    Wow, is that stadium empty! They should have called it the clearout, not the blackout. Half of the people that had tickets on the 50yd line didn't even show up.

    The scary part is the weather was incredible for this time of year in KC. What's it going to be like when bad weather hits?

    I just hope this doesn't lead to the team being sold and moved.

    Hmmmm...would you guys trade for the Jet's? Wouldn't mind seeing the Chiefs a little closer to home. But only if they get to keep the cool Jerseys, name, logo etc. Its what sold me on them so many years ago when I watched them crush the Jets as a six year old. Then again, those were the days of Dawson, Taylor, Bell, Lanier etc.

    NJ.....I'm stuck here in Ct, but the Chiefs wouldn't be the Chiefs if they were anywhere but Arrowhead.

    don't I know it. I saw fans wearing cut out trash bags. we always took a jug a whiskey or rum with us. the guy I went with had season tickets and we had to stay there till the last tick on the clock. but we were trashed and didn't care
