This may be a dumb question being that this is a Chiefs site, but I'm asking anyway.

If you could choose either the Chiefs winning the Super Bowl or the Royals winning the World Series, which would you choose?

I'd actually pick the Royals winning the WS for several reasons. I was a Royals fan long before I was a Chiefs fan and deep down I still love (and loath) them best. The Chiefs sucked when I was a kid and the Royals were good so I bonded with them much more and I miss those days more than anything. Plus I didn't really care about football as a kid.

Also, I think winning the World Series after a 162 game season and the playoffs is just a "bigger" accomplishment somehow. There's so much more time and games for something to go wrong and throw your season off kilter in baseball. So in the end I think I'd actually get more satisfaction out of a Royals championship than one for the Chiefs.....although both would be sahweeeeeeetttt....

The Royals winning the World Series in 2005 would just make it year 96...

Considering the lack of a salary cap in baseball the Royals winning a WS would be a bigger accomplishment, I don't think that is an absurd statement at all. The NFL system is set up so that the Chiefs should have some success every so often. That said, this poll is like picking between two people you love, I don't think I could do it. I don't expect this poll to even be close though... :)

I of course voted the Chiefs. I like football more than baseball. I was also alive for the last Royals WS..although I don't remember it.

Actually, the only team in this area thats ever won a National Title since i've been in to sports (early 90's) is the Washburn Lady Blues (Last week....)

If it were between the Yankees and the Royals, it would be hands down for the Royals.

Royals v the A's, and well, thats where my rootin for KC stops.

Anybody but the A's and I would pull for the Royals, as I did back in the George Brett era. Sadly, the Royals haven't done anything since.

The Chiefs are my favorite football team hands down.

I guess I am like a Duck, the first team that imprinted on me is the one I stuck with for the rest of my life. My Dad took me to an A's game when I was 6 years old.

My relatives were in California on Christmas day, when the Chiefs lost to the Dolphins in 1971.

I'd be happy with either team not sucking for a couple of years at this point and I'd definitely take a championship from either one. But with a gun to my head, I'd say Chiefs.

It is not about the Royals it is all about how much I hate MLB. The owners suck, the players suck, the contract between the two sucks, it is the most fan unfriendly structure in pro sports and that is saying a hell of a lot. If you are not a Yankees or Red Sox fan in the AL I do not see why anyone bothers the sport is so lopsided in favoring those teams in those markets

It's called team loyalty. It's something that happens when you grow up with a particular team. You tend to be a fan no matter how bad they are. I wouldn't expect someone like you to understand.

Easy. Chiefs.

I've experienced lots of great winning moments with the Royals, even though they are in the distant past. Brett's homer off Gossage in 80 is still the ultimate for me, and the WS victory is still a vivid memory.

I don't remember the Chiefs SB victory (wasn't following sports in 1969-70, when I was 3). All I have from them is two decades of horrible football, followed by a decade of postseason frustration. I'm ready to celebrate.

:hmmm: Seems the Angels have won a WS in the last few years... even the lowly Diamondbacks... over the Yankees even...... I'll bet the Twins think they have a chance too.

Baseball is last on my list of sports I follow behind football, college football, college basketball, and nba.

Figures that I have yet to see the Chiefs, Gators (I didn't really follow in 1996), Jayhawks or Miami Heat win a championship but I've seen the Marlins win 2 world series, being at the 1997 games 6 and 7. :banghead:

Very tough loss, but Looper was going to be our closer no matter what we did in the off-season. What we really needed were pitchers to get the game to Looper; ironically those guys pitched well yesterday and Looper found a way to blow it.

Dude, that was their FOURTH year of existence. I think they even had a division championship or two prior to that year (I'm not up on my D'Backs history). Yes, last year they sucked even worse than the Royals, but that's because they mortgaged their future to buy that WS.

Ok... so, in the D'Backs first four years of existence they had ONE sub-500 season. Two division championships, and one WS championship. Whew, boy those are some lowly f*ckers. How did those scrappy underdogs ever rise up and defeat the Yankees? I mean, c'mon... Curt Schilling... Randy Johnson. Has anyone ever even heard of these guys?

Heck, even since the WS when they've been on their downward spiral they've collected one more division championship, and only one more sub 500 season (granted, that sub 500 season was really, really bad).

Thank you.

I was wrong about the Diamondbacks everyone... being worse than the Royals last year...(a year in which the Royals had their worst season to date) does NOT make them "lowly." In fact they may be the savior of baseball as a whole and should automatically be granted a trip to the playoffs each year in celebration of their truly amazing abilities. ALL HAIL THE DIAMONDBACKS!!!!!! THE POPE OF MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL!!!!!!!

Really tough call on that. The only reason I chose the Royals is because of how out of whack MLB is with the differences in the payrolls. I would love to the few million dollar pay-rolled Royals beat the 200+ million Yankees for the AL pennant and then beat who ever has the highest payroll in the NL for the WS. But I am pretty sure that aint gonna happen.

I think the Chiefs will be closer to winning it all for a heck of a lot longer than the Royals will dream of...

Dont get me wrong I am a huge Chiefs fan. I would want a Chiefs SB more than a Royals WS anyday. But doesnt anyone think that with the roster and guys we have this season on the Royals would make a great underdog cinderella type storyline for the ages? It would be like the movie Major League with Bob Ueker (god I love that guy). But like Id said before Chiefs SB would be more exciting and more fun considering KC to be a football town. St Louis on the other hand, see this is why I hate the fans of St Louis with a passion. They think they know everything about football because they have won a SB recently. But I keep asking all of them who did they root for in 93,94 season? None of them can tell me an answer. KC=football.....STL=baseball.

Just because you're a Chiefs fan, doesn't mean you even root for the Royals. The Royals will not win a WS until something is done with the organization to allow it to better compete like Oakland or Minnesota, or baseball levels the playing field. Neither is happening this year and neither is a Royals WS.
