This is a perennial bitch. I think the last time it came up was about November or so. I remember I'd just gone to a game with my nephew who asked me why the Chiefs mascot was a rat. The same week someone else made a thread complaining about it.

That was me.

I was suggesting that they brought back Warpaint.

Understand that you probably couldn't get away with the whole Bob Johnson (someone dressed up as an American Indian - even though University of Illinois and Florida State seem to get away with it) thing, but I think someone riding an Apaloosa horse would be a nice throwback to the AFL days.

I think KC Wolf looks like a rat as well......

I like the whole, "let's honor the Wolfpack thing". It was a good idea for a mascot, as an alternative to stay politically correct.

However, I think the version of a "wolf" that they use doesn't look like one.

FWIW, I think they should have a designated "Wolfpack" section in Arrowhead (think Dogpound in Cleveland). I think WeirdWolf is trying to do that, grass roots style, in the endzone he sits in.

I agree. The wolf concept is cool, but when's the last time you saw a wolf with that much junk in his trunk? I mean wolves are supposed to be lean, mean, and vicious. I think it would be better if we got a real wolf, hell maybe get a whole pack. Don't feed them except for game time. Before the game, you fill up a dummy of the opposing team's uniform with a bunch of steaks and ground beef. Maybe a few bags of ketchup in there too. Then you release the wolves and let them go to town. Imagine the positive PR this would be as well. Wolves are like endangered and shit. We'd be helping out the animals. PETA would be happy. Bye weeks would be especially sweet. I bet wolves that don't eat for two weeks would really go to town.

I don't disagree. IMHO, screw all mascots and cheerleaders.

Let me rephrase that:

Get rid of the mascot, and then screw the cheerleaders, once those cheerleaders are replaced by hot ones.

What would be wrong if the Chiefs branded themselves with the American Indian tribes of Kansas. That way instead of a cowboy and indian reference it would be a positive reference to indian heritage......AND WE COULD GET WARPAINT BACK!!!!!

We could even do halftime indian spirit dances and incorporate a laser show at night. Ya know horses running in the sky and eagles circling the stands with smoke signals from each end of the stadium.

In Washington every indian casino I have ever gone to is way over done with stage shows, light shows and fireworks and the like.
Hell indians even own amphitheatres out here. I don't see how they would be against it if it was done tastefully and they got a cut of the co-branding merchandise. Like noise makers that look like little totem poles with your favorite Chiefs players heads on it that rattled when you shook them.

How about a section for all the drunks,stoners and rowdies called The Arrow Heads.Everyone could wear one those prop arrows through the head although with the seats being so close it could be a bit interesting.
