This is really pissing me off. Watching him eating freakin' nachos when his team maybe could use his support on the sideline...it just seems like he doesn't care!! :mad:

Sorry if this has been discussed, but I don't live in KC so I don't know if the media down there has given a reason as to why he seems to be MIA...

...if he has a good reason, fine. Otherwise, he looks like a rich spoiled punk ass...I love Priest, but his mysteriousness is annoying. Just curious if anyone had an explanation.

I really think he's more injured than the Chiefs want to let on. They don't want us to see him hobbling on crutches on the sideline...

That's the only thing I can think of, but it seems amazing that they could keep that quiet. They are better at keeping secrets than the freaking CIA...

...I was just curious if the question had been asked by the media down there. It is glaringly obvious, and they show it every freakin' game...

*sigh* I guess I want him to give a shit as much as we do. Sorry 'bout that.

...plus, I'm just genuinely curious about what if anything the media is saying about him not at least making an appearence on the sidelines...

Flame on if you must, but he does kinda look like an ass. Without an explanation of course...

I don't really care if he eats nachos or not, but he could at least bring them to the sidelines and share them with the contributing players, for christsake.

He <em>should</em> be a leader on this team. A leader would be on the sidelines, helping motivate his team in any way that he can ("I'll give you two nachos if you get a sack already"). Being up in the box <em>does</em> make him look selfish and not a team player. If there's a good reason for him being up there, they ought to come out and say it.

If he's under doctors orders to stay off the leg (and I agree, he probably is), then why can't the Chiefs simply tell us that so it doesn't look so bad?

I don't think anyone would have a problem with that. I certainly wouldn't. What we have a problem with is hearing that he's going to be fine and everything is a-okay, but him not being on the sideline, acting as the team leader he's supposed to be.

Yea, that Holmes guy. He obviously has done nothing for our team. Everyone else on this team makes an effort day in and day out, and he just half-asses it. if that selfish bastard would just make an effort, we might actually win a game or two. I know we were one "rah-rah" away from winning on Sunday.

Holmes can sit in a suite and eat pussy for all I care. He can't play. He's done more for this team in three years than most players do in a career.

Yeah, a real leader would have been down on the sidelines handing out nachos, and not up in the press box resting a knee he tore up trying to drag a pitiful football team kicking and screaming into the playoffs again.

I would be too. But I'm not getting millions of dollars to be a team leader, either.

If Priest is just up there because "it's cold down there," there is definitely a problem. I don't think that's why he'[s up there, though. I suspect he's on doctors orders. I just wish the Chiefs would tell us so.

Because it's Priest and that's how he does things. I TTA with those who think the injury is worse than they are letting on.

We went through the same thing with the hip injury. Started out minor and then he was gone for the season. Then came all the speculation and rumors and such.

Probably so, and that's why I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. As I've said about five times now, I don't really think it's an issue. I'm sure he has a very good reason to be up there. I'd just like the CHiefs to tell us what is is...that's all.

I suspect that Priest could help out without being "rah-rah". He could be giving pointers and tips to LJ abd Blaylock, for example.

But, I also have no problem with "leaving him alone to heal" -- I'd just like the Chiefs to come out and say, "Yeah, Priest is pretty banged up. Let's just leave him alone and let him heal."

Not sure why that is so hard for them.

Ok... so the problem isn't that he is not playing, or being in the press box, or eating nachos, or that the team isn't being forthcoming about his injury, the problem is that they didn't announce all the specific details of the the doctor's orders so that you feel better about him being in the press box and not on the sideline.

I'd sya the reason they need to is that some peopel (such as the originator of this thread) take his presense in the press box to mean that he is selfish and lazy and not a "team-player." If he is all of those things, then the Chiefs hsould simply say, "Priest is a team player and wants to be on the sidelines. However, the doctors have ordered him to stay off his knee, so we are keeping him in the press box for now."

I really beleive Priest is in the press box because he has been told to stay off his knee. All I'm saying is that it would be in the Chiefs best interest to come out and say so, so that some people don't assume the worst (which, in this case, is that Priest is simply lazy and not interested in participating).

It's not about me feeling better -- it's simple PR. Those of us in the marketing business do this sort of thing all the time. It's called damage control. It would seem that in this case, the truth is better than that the fiction that gets assumed by some (see the thread originator for an example). If so, the right path is to state the truth so that the assumptions go away. It's really that simple.

Are you for real?

Where are you going to be when he's busting his ass in the off-season rehabbing that knee? Where are you when he's in the gym working his ass off to be in prime physical condition? That guy makes more sacrifices for the Chiefs in one play than you'll make your entire life. He doesn't owe you sh*t. He gives everything he has everytime he steps on the field. I'm sorry he's not down on the sideline giving you a warm fuzzy feeling, but I'm pretty sure he's earned the right to take it easy in a situation that he has no control over.

I never said he owes me shit. Nobody on that team or front office owes you, me, or any other fan anything. He's a professional athlete. Nothing more, nothing less. He is not God. He is not a Chief's fan personal savior. Sacrifices for the Chiefs? Good god man, he'd make those same sacrifices anywhere else in the league that would pay him. He makes those sacrifices for a paycheck (not that there is anything inherently wrong with doing that... we all do that for our employer). When he retires, he'll head back to San Antonio and lead his life. He's not going to sit around and contemplate which fans thought he was God and which fans thought he was a prima donna putz.

Priest doesn't Owe you or any Chiefs fan or Player One F***ing thing. Priest is the F***ing Godfather of this team. If he wants to sit in the press box & analyze the Game from the top down then so be it.

If it was Peyton Manning injured in the press box you would say he was studying the game because he is a genius.

My point is that is pretty ****ing hard to be a team leader or 'Keep the Faith' from a damn luxury box snarfing nachos.

He's a damned fine athlete. He's a piss poor team leader on a team that desperately needs one.

If he wants to be an enigma fine, just don't tell the fans and your team to 'Keep the Faith' when it's obvious by your actions that the only faith you have is that the suite attendants will get you another plate of nachos when your cheese gets cold.

Perhaps you could tell me why I'm included in your list. I didn't ask for one ****ing thing from Priest. All I want is the Chiefs to tell us why he's not on the sidelines. That's all. I didn't say, nor do I believe, that Priest owes me anything. I didn't ask for a damn thing from him. Only the Chiefs PR machine.

No, I think Peyton is an overrated egomaniacal putz too, and if the search function worked, you would see I have stated that in print many times.

The only thing Priest was analyzing in that luxury suite was the cheese coverage content of a tortilla chip.

Here's a newsflash. He's not a team leader simply because you want him to be one. Or simply because he's a good player. Why is he required to be the leader? He shows up and does his job everyday, and he does it better than anyone else on the team. That's not enough? If everyone on this team followed his example, we be printing play-off tickets.

ICH, I knew when I got started yesterday it would be an unpopular opinion, but it is my opinion.

I don't hate Priest, he's an excellent professional athlete. I'm happy that he has done well as a Chief.

As seems to be the case with most pro athletes today, it is all about him, not the team. His preseason goals were about him. He has been sold to the fans as a team leader. His actions that are currently being displayed to the fans are not those of a team leader.

Who knows what goes on behind the scenes. Maybe he is working with DB and LJ during practice. Maybe he is working with Saunders on game planning. Maybe the players didn't give a shit about him being in the luxury suite, then fine let him sit inside... but if one player was upset about it, then that was to many.

I don't want him to be a team leader. I stated yesterday that I don't care if he ever puts on a Chiefs uniform again. This team has way more pressing issues than RB.

I'm saying that is the way he has been sold to the fans and tried to present himself in the better times. If he didn't want to be thought of as a team leader than what the hell was the Keep the Faith crap about, other than to sell T-shirts.

If you don't want to be considered a team leader, don't present yourself as one.

There aren't any "Priest is destroying the team" threads this week either -- at least that I've seen.

And, I said it last week, too -- I think that Priest being up in the press box indicates that he's more injured that the Chiefs are letting on. That's the only assumption I've made. I'm not assuming he's lazy, selfish, or that he's too pussy to sit in the cold. I'm only assuming he's worse off than we all thought. And, I said the same thing last week.

I think the key to deciphering the power is the order in which Priest, Carl, Al, Lamar, and Gunther were standing. During the May Day Parade, it was Lamar, Carl, Al, Gunther, and Priest. Last Sunday, it appeared to be Lamar, Priest, Al, Gunther, and Carl. I think this means that Carl is about to be ousted.

Anyone that is still jumping on Priest's butt today is being silly. Vermeil flat out told us yesterday that Priest is out for another two weeks or more. If that's the case, he should be resting the knee until he's healthy.

Before Vermeil said that, it made a bit of sense to question why Priest was in the box. Vermeil had told us he would play vs. Oakland this week. If he was that close, then there was no reason he couldn't be on the sidelines on Sunday. But, we now know he wasn't really that close.
