    Default Shout Out From a Pats Fan


    0 Not allowed!
    I'm a hard core Patriots Fan, since way before the bandwagon started rolling in 2001, and with many cold, losing Sunday afternoons in the old Foxboro Stadium to prove it! I also consider myself a fan of the NFL and am pretty knowledgeable about its history. As a result, I have long held the Hunt family and the Texans/Chiefs franchise in high regard for the role they have played in the evolution of the modern NFL.

    Like every Pats fan, I was realistic but sad when "Piolichick" was busted up and Scott made his way to Kansas City. But the more I thought about it, there are few places I would rather have seen him go than to the Chiefs. You have a guy at the helm who knows how to build champions; Todd Haley seems to be a perfect complement to him, reminiscent of Pioli's relationship with Coach Belichick.

    Now, you have Vrabes and Matt. I think you guys got the better part of the deal but I also think it was a lot more "fair" than some of the mediots are suggesting.

    Bottom Line: I now have another team to pull for, except of course, when you're playing the Pats or competing with them for a Playoff spot. Otherwise, I hope you raise Holy Heck in the AFC West and kick some Bronco and Charger butt!

    Yeah, I don't like em very much either, but they're not gonna be a threat to us for a while. The Broncos and Chargers always give us problems. An extra "L" or two for each of them will always be handy at Playoff time.

    Thanks for the support, the way it looks right now, we owe a lot of gratitude to the Pats organization.

PatsFan4Chiefs , please don't take this as a personal attack on you but more so at the Patriots as a Team. I hate the Pats for what has happened over the last decade. It is actually more of a envious thing but excelled beyond to a slight hatred of the organization and truth be spoken, I have cheered against them in every Superbowl they played in and I am a proAFC kinda guy which is kinda hypocritical but hey what can I say I am human. I been a Chiefs fan since day 1 of my life, the first gift I ever recieved was the plaque I am using as my avatar on this forum. The Arrowhead is made of metal that came from the old Memorial Stadium the Chiefs played in when they first arrived in KC. It is my most valued Chiefs possession but that is another story. I am sooooooo happy that Clark Hunt made the move to aquire Scott Pioli as I think if there is any team that deserves the winning ways is KC Chiefs. I can't say that I wish the Pats well as it would be a lie and I won't degrade myself to say it so all I will say is this," Thanks for the kind words sir but keep in mind, when it comes to teams in the NFL I only cheer one of them and that is the Kansas City Chiefs."
    Until we meet in the Play Offs,
    pCe out.
    I take every word of that as a compliment! Most Pats fans have learned to "embrace the hate." In fact, we thrive on it. In the post Cap/FA era, no team was supposed to go to five AFCCG's, play in four SB's and win three of them, all in just seven years. If I were you, I'd hate us too; 1970 was a long time ago.

    But, I'll still cheer for the Chiefs when they're playing anybody but us or competing for a Playoff spot with us.

    I agree with all of this. (And I warned you guys there'd be more of my kind around now. LOL) We won't back a guy like Ratgini, but we have love for Pioli (and Crennel if he comes to KC) as well as our old players. You're going to become the 2nd team for a lot of Pats fans whether you like it or not. Hahaha Hopefully you guys can win some games soon and start to be hated like we are. You'll learn to enjoy it and feed off of it like some sort of football vampire.

    I would say that you have "a" main piece of the puzzle but not "the" main piece. The way I see it over the past eight years, it's been a combination of the Krafts, Pioli, Belichick and Brady that got the Pats where they are.

    I put the Krafts first, because ultimately it is the quality, commitment and focus of ownership that defines the elite franchises of the NFL (I add "focus" because I believe that the Chiefs franchise has the quality of ownership, but that, for whatever reason, it has not been focused on building a winner in recent years--I personally ascribe a lot of that to the illness of Mr. Hunt, one of the great men in the history of the NFL). Ultimately long-term, consistent success in the NFL is driven by ownership. There is no better example of the truth of this than the foolishness of Dan Snyder and Woody Johnson.

    That said, I don't think that the Pats yet belong among the elite franchises, but I do think that the Krafts want to take them there, like the Mara's and Rooney's have taken the Giants and Steelers to that level over the decades and as Jerry Jones has done for the Cowboys in recent years and, as much as it hurts me to say this as a Pats fan, the Irsays as well. To do that, Robert and Jonathan Kraft will have to assure that there is a "next act" after Pioli and, yes, after Belichick and Brady as well.

    Time, then, will tell whether you are right, our "stay here is not for long" and the Pats are remembered as the team that dominated the 2000's and not as one of the great franchises of the league. However, from what I know of the Krafts, I think they want to move the franchise into that elite company. So, I'd hold off on that prediction for a few years if I were you.
