The crowd has changed in the last 7 years that I have been a season ticket holder.

It is a less pasionate crowd than before.

Part of it is money. Alot of the core hard core screaming fans can't afford NFL season tickets. They have been replaced with the ticket holder more interested in tailgating and the festive atmosphere. Part of it the string of disappointments that we have endured the last 12 years (One playoff win etc.).

The crowd was loud. This loss aint on them. but when you have a mass exodus with 7 mintues left and the team only down 10 points it is a fact that can't be denied anymore. This aint the same crowd that use to cheer a DT sack.

I think they'd come back to life if there was any feeling that the players were playing hard. You could feel through the TV that the players were giving up.

I couldn't believe Philly could score all those 2nd half points. Almost all passing. The crowd should have destroyed their timing but they didn't. I blame the crowd.

Man i hear ya. I watched the game on T.V today, and I sensed the players gave up just by the looks on their faces I could see it. It was tough to watch.

I was there. We had a friend from Jersey with us - he was dumbfounded at the noise. He couldn't believe how loud that staduim was.

I don't think the problem is the crowd - it's the team. You could feel Arrowhead deflate as the team pretty much rolled over and died towards the end of the first half.

The reason for the mass exodus after the second interception was because it was the finale straw.

Watching the team give up in 2nd half killed the crowd off.

Lost the 12th man advantage.

I normally hate the crowd that leaves early, but today I didn't blame them at all.

You are probably right about the crowd not being the same, the difference is we had a D that could keep us in games till the last drive, so the last drive was important. Plus 7 years ago the team was winning all the time and always in the playoff's. Currently my feeling about that after this year we will still only have had only one playoff game in the 2000's.

Wished I could have watched the first half on TV. The Fox affiliate in our area (Tulsa) covered the Dallas/Oakland game. It is disappointing to hear about the look of defeat from our Chiefs.

It is. It is really disappointing. There was 5:00 minutes left in the 4th qtr, and the Chiefs were down by 10 pts, at that given time, the camera focused in on the Chiefs sidelines, I saw the looks on all the players faces. Disappointed, they all looked defeated. What amazes me is, I saw no confidence, no hope. There was still time to play catch up ball, come back and win. Makes me wonder, does this team have any character?

This team hasn't won a playoff game in 12 years and has been to the playoffs twice in 7 years.

It's amazing that the fans still are as loud as they are.

I blame the losing as to why the advantage is gone.

My family of four was at the game today very exciting for the first quarter. Then when the second half started and the Chiefs couldnt do anything it was very discouraging. We left with about 6:00 left to go in the game. We had a 4 hr drive ahead of us to get home and I could see there was no fire left in the team.

And leave earlier and earlier? Which I don't understand? If you are leaving early to beat the traffic wellllll........ there is alot of traffic in the lots because 40,000 people decided to leave with 7:00 mintues left.

Watching from my seat I didn't see any give up..........I think that's a bunch of BS. Al Saunders seems to have deviated from his attack approach though. I just rolled in from the game and I gonna watch the TiVo version now so maybe I might see something to change my mind but I doubt that It will happen. The only thing and the thing that is part of our profile is we keep scoring points as games wears on but today we didn't keep scoring. We tried to run the clock and while there wil be a time and a place for that it didn't work for us today.

Philly caught on to what we were doing, Saunders made no adjustments and they kicked our offense around. The players looked like they knew they had been beaten and just wanted to go home. They were hanging their heads coming off the field for halftime when they were winning......

This is real simple, people left early because that game wasn't just a loss. That game made me disgusted and embarassed to be a fan of this team. They should feel happy the people didn't stay and boo them, I personally was really pissed at the performance of this team.

"waaaahhh, we stopped cheering because we haven't won any playoff games. Waahhhh, we left early because we knew we'd lose."

Suck it up you wusses! Even if this team is 3-13 you should be making noise. If you're going to go to the game then make some frigging noise for the whole game, otherwise give your ticket to someone who will.

Props to my fellow fans who were still in the stadium cheering on as the minutes wound down. :clap:

To those of you sandy vagina-ed crybabies who left early and even worse the multitudes of you who refused to make any noise even on 3rd downs... nlm

The Arrowhead crowd has changed.

5+ years of spending the first half of the game screaming your ass off, only to be let down by the defense time after time is deflating. You can almost hear a collective "here we go again" from 77k fans.

At some point the players need to get it done. Fans don't win games.

I'm always there to the end. Shoot you never know. We get that onside kick I'm sure we would have scored and won the game. But 7 mintues left 40,000 fans had saw enough. Hell the team got booed a little for not trying to score at the end of the first half with 1:18 left.

So one day when they win it all, you can say you suffered through the bad times :rolleyes: I used to think that way, too, until I realized it's f'n stupid to waste time watching 60 minutes of football when the team you're watching isn't playing the full 60 minutes of football.

If you don't like what you're watching, you change the channel. If you don't like the movie, you get up and leave. If the game sucks, go have a beer (that's not $8). Life's too short.

Heh heh.

We stayed until the onside kick as well. As others have already said, everybody knew it was over, and I'd say that the fans are sick of it. I sat next to a Philly fan from PA, and he was amazed at how the fans went mass exodus at about the five and a half minute mark. Told me you'd NEVER see that in Philly. I told him basically what Bad Guy said, and then he nodded in agreement.

Not really an excuse, but there are only so many times in a ten plus year stretch one can watch poor performances and meltdowns before one gets jaded. You want the fnas to stay "in" the game the WHOLE game? Tell the Chiefs to put a better product on the field.

.... Part of it the string of disappointments that we have endured the last 12 years (One playoff win etc.).
....

You nailed it with that... :(

I was there too. When Johnson fumbled, you could FEEL the momentum switch...and everyone was like, "ah shit...here we go again."

When Dante fumbled, it was like: "it's over." Those of us who stuck around until the failed on-sides? We were just hoping against hope, yet knowing better.... :shake:

This isn't a crowd issue. Well, I guess it partly is. I mean, the Chiefs have found ways to take the crowd out of the game in recent years............

The Chiefs need to field a team that can get the job done with or without "fan support". If the defense is constantly in need of 77k+ fans screaming their heads off then we're in deep trouble on the road.

I stayed to the end. But I live 10 minutes from Arrowhead, so it's not a big deal to get home.

Yesterday's crowd was plenty loud. Here's some reasons why people left early:

1) Game was moved from a 12 noon to 3:15pm start. Some people drive four, five hours or more to attend a game. Game wasn't over till 6:30pm.

2) Rich Johnson County poop stains leave early anyway. They don't want to pay their illegal alien babysitters an extra $4 an hour for overtime babysitting.

3) When your team blows a 24-6 lead, what do you expect? The last touchdown made the game look closer than it was. Dante Hall's fumble was the killer. The Chiefs were hard to watch the whole second half.

4) The Chiefs game day routine is getting stale. It's like going to mass. You know what to expect, know when to sit down, stand up, echhhhhh....It's so predictable. Need to mix it up. Too many sponsorships and stupid contests. It's grating.

5) WTF is with playing the Rudy speech at the beginning of the fourth quarter? Everytime they do that, we lose. "Nobody wins in our house..." Except Philly, and Carolina, and Houston, and New England.......yeesh...

6) Beer in the car costs $1 a bottle. Beer in the stadium? $8. Where do YOU drown your sorrows? PS: Let the wife drive you. Don't pull a Warfield.

I knew the game was over at the end of the 3rd quarter when the Chiefs players walked to the other end of the field. They looked absolutely dejected and appeared to have no leadership whatsoever. All I could think was...these guys have no heart.

I do have to give it up for DJ though. That guy's a one-man team out there.

I am fairly new to the arrowhead crowd, so you can call me part of the probme if you'd like. I left the game because, as many have mentioned, the team had given up. If the offense had rushed back onto the field, I would have stayed. Instead, they looked like they were just going through the motions. I had no hope whatsoever that they would be able to come back.

I hate it that I have to see commercials instead of being entertained. Even the Royals who are about as hard up for money don't show as many commercials as does Arrowhead.

I'm with most of you...I was EXTREMELY disappointed in Chiefs fans after Sundays loss.
The Eagles took the lead with like 9:00 left on the clock and the fans were bailing on our team.
It was like the our fans said "Ah, we dont need to cheer anymore because we're winning. AH SH*T!! We're losing, now we really cant cheer. AH F*CK it, lets leave!"
I was embarassed!

You know, I stayed until the end and I can state unequivically - STFU & STFD!!! If I pay money in a free society for attendance to an event, I'll leave if I want to. Bitching about people leaving until the end is just a cop out for really being pissed that your team f*ucked up!. It's just that simple. Place you blame on those who actually lost the game and can do something about it - THE TEAM. Not the fans who pay their salaries with their hard earned money.

There is no doubt about it...Fair Weather Fans = KC fans....
I have watched the Chiefs and Royals for over twenty years while growing up in KCMO and elsewhere since...They are not the fans of Buffalo or even Denver, despite how loud they are at the start...If the Royals had made the playoffs in the last 20, the Chiefs would not be nearly as popular or soldout..

JUST STAY IN FREAKIN OLATHE ...they had a chance at the end to make their own comeback in front of 15,000 fans....Once they were believed to lose, those Kansans were gettin their fat asses back to the plastic, white flower burbs.

If you say you pay and then can do what you want...YOU are not a real hometown fan...You want to feel like a winner...that is your only reason to be there!

No way. I was at the game. The players did NOT give up. The coaching staff fugged this one up. Philly made game-time adjustments and the Chiefs didn't. Gun & Al had a very bad day. Vermeil too. The number of coaching gaffes are mind boggling. Absolutely horrible. For once, Whitlock got it right. Although he left out alot of the mistakes. Probably ran out of column space... :cuss:

wow i was going to start a thread about this this morning and missed this thread from yesterday. i only went in person to the jets game. but my perception of the fans is one and the same as the op of this thread.

during the jets game with about half a quarter left to play me and the wife were sitting there and cheering on the team and of course hoping for the shutout. all of a sudden there is this mass exodus. those FANS that left let down the defense. they should have been there 100% in full force to help stop the jets from scoring and they left.

i was really in shock, i know we have to drive three hours from wichita and make it a big trip so we are never in any big hurry to leave the stadium. hell we left about 15 minutes after the game ended and still had to wait to leave the lots for about an hour.

what is everyones big rush to leave? and why let the team down like that. i was and still am ashamed of how alot of fans act anymore. not one person should leave the stadium until the final whistle blows imo.

I was shocked at the 7:00 minute mark to see everyone go, but if you paid you leave when you want. Just don't block my view on the way out is all I ask.

Six + hours of pounding adult beverages will do that to a person. I agree though. I never leave until the the game clock shows 00:00

. Hell the team got booed a little for not trying to score at the end of the first half with 1:18 left.

They should have been boo'ed. It's one thing if you're getting the ball back to start the 2nd half. But we were in a tailspin. Green should have spiked the ball after the first down and then set up for a 20yd outpattern or a hailmary. NO GUTS! Don't wanna hear that crap about calls not coming in fast enough. CALL YOUR OWN FREAKIN' PLAYS, TRENT.

The only thing that has changed over the years is the price of food, beer, and parking. Well, that and the Jumbotron addition and how you can't throw the football around in the parking lot anymore like we used to do when we were kids.

Fans have always left early. I shake my head and just continue to watch the game= win or lose. I can judge those who leave, but why bother? Look around the league- it happens everywhere, in every stadium, with every fanbase.

Despite what you might think- The Chiefs still have one of the deepest and most fanatic of fanbases. And that, my friend, is my support group on bad Sundays, and a part of my joy on good Sundays.

The crowd has changed in the last 7 years that I have been a season ticket holder.

It is a less pasionate crowd than before.

Part of it is money. Alot of the core hard core screaming fans can't afford NFL season tickets. They have been replaced with the ticket holder more interested in tailgating and the festive atmosphere. Part of it the string of disappointments that we have endured the last 12 years (One playoff win etc.).

The crowd was loud. This loss aint on them. but when you have a mass exodus with 7 mintues left and the team only down 10 points it is a fact that can't be denied anymore. This aint the same crowd that use to cheer a DT sack.

The Chiefs now have very lazy fans. Too many posts and radio shows on why the Chiefs owe it to people to have home games televised. If you care that much then buy the tickets. Don't expect others to buy tickets so you can stay at home.

KC has become the Falcons, Lions, Jagaurs, Bucs etc. I don't want to pay to go, but I would like to watch it on TV.

Screw this noise......

The 12th man has more than done its job the past 15 years. Its the team thats not held up thier end.
The Fan can't be expected to yell until he's having an exploded artery, when the Team is giving up 28 unaswered points.

Bullshit.

The team does its job and the fans will hold up.

That never seemed to bother Packers of Bears fans. They still buy tickets, show up and are loud for their teams.

I know, but there was that 10/15 year gap when they were one of the worst teams in the NFL. Still sold out and no one ever bitched about the quality of the fans.

That's a bunch of BS.

"waaaahhh, we stopped cheering because we haven't won any playoff games. Waahhhh, we left early because we knew we'd lose."

Suck it up you wusses! Even if this team is 3-13 you should be making noise. If you're going to go to the game then make some frigging noise for the whole game, otherwise give your ticket to someone who will.

Props to my fellow fans who were still in the stadium cheering on as the minutes wound down. :clap:

To those of you sandy vagina-ed crybabies who left early and even worse the multitudes of you who refused to make any noise even on 3rd downs... nlm

Somewhere in the world, Carl Peterson just popped a big boner without his Viagra.
