Will we see the Red Pants this Sunday?

This will be the first time we will be expected to wear our 'whites'. I can't imagine that I'll like the red pants, but it will be interesting to see.

Does anyone know if this is anything more than a rumor?

would prefer whites stained with the blood of our opponents...

09-22-2000, 05:55 PM
Yes, I'd bet money we'll see red pants....

09-22-2000, 05:56 PM
I think we will see the red pants this weekend.I saw an old clip today in which we were wearing the Red pants,and I think that they look sharp.Should be plenty of blood to go around and it will show up just fine on the jerseys. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif

I've got "Warpaths, the illustrated History of the KC Chiefs" which has some photo's with the red pants and white shirts I think it looks sharp.

Hey Hank, I've got my copy payed for and and anxiously awaiting its arrival. Is it great reading or mostly pictures or both?

Thos snappy-looking pants will match the embarassed red faces of the Chiefs defense as Mike Anderson becomes the first player in NFL history to rush for 100+ yards in his first three starts. He'll likely also take over the NFL rushing lead from (cough) Tiki Barber on Sunday.<P>

I can't believe how many of you want those red pants! Man, I just think they look so bad. I was so happy when they went away. I always liked the road "whites." They're just old school and basic. I think the only improvements that should be made to the uniforms is gray face masks ala Giants and Cardinals. White facemasks look "soft!"

I remember thinking in the early 90s, when the Chiefs would lose an important road game, it had to be those white pants. Marty always lost the big games in Cleveland when he had them wear their white pants. After due consideration, I realize, it might be the team, not the pants. I don't care what color pants they wear Sunday, just win.

I always liked the red pants, and have never been fond of the white ones.

I'm with you hear. IMHO, those red pants look RETARDED and outdated. I hated them 20 years ago and my opinion has not changed. I also remember how BAD those Chiefs teams were that wore them in the late '70's and early '80's.

09-23-2000, 08:43 AM
So, you think the red pants were responsible for the Chiefs poor play?

I know that is not what you're saying Tx, but that's how the post looks.

If the Chiefs are going to break out the new uniforms, I would bet on the red pants makiing their debut.

Of course this is only speculation as there has been no official word from the Chiefs.

Remember, you saw it here first?

Remember Joe Delaney?
Some of us do and are acting on our belief that he was a hero.
This is a bandwagon that all are invited to jump on!!!

Let's just say that the red pants bring back BAD memories! *grin*

Response to post #4

DJay23 I think you'll really like the book it has some great photo's with some interesting reading. Not being born until 1970 those early Chiefs of the 60's and 70's were really intivative with the use of the moving pocket and the motion offense. I don't think I ever got enough credit for all that....Ha Ha.

What's the possibility that they show up with a flaming arrowhead on their helmets. It would be totally different. I don't know why but I had a dream that they did.

09-23-2000, 11:21 AM

I think I'd like that better http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif

give moreau the ball...<P>

Thanks Hank.
As a matter of fact, I got it today in the mail. It looks really sharp with real autographs from Lenny D and Lamar! http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif I can't wait to read it. It looks really well put together.

"Quack-quack. Quack quack"

"Disco....Disco Duck!"

What next, the Bee Gees doing the National Anthems?

Red pants gives the game to the Broncos. I don't think we ever won a game in Mile High wearing the Disco pants.

...and yes, the Chiefs played horrible in the late 70s and 80s BECAUSE of the pants!!!

09-24-2000, 12:00 AM
NO RED PANTS PLEASE!!!! (begging on hands and knees)

All they remind me of is the "bad old days" of the 70's and 80's...<P>

09-24-2000, 07:44 AM
Looks like they are back...Sorry guys.

09-24-2000, 08:33 AM
You privy to some info the rest of us are not, SR? Or just supremely confident we're guessing correctly?

09-24-2000, 08:48 AM
Hey! How come Bob Dole isn't in that post? I feel cheated. The quick hit this week in the RMN is this will be the debut...FWIW

09-24-2000, 09:03 AM
This Just In -
They're wearing their cups on the outside of their pants. Don't know if the pants are red.

09-24-2000, 09:34 AM
T minus 5 hours and counting for the first Broncos score against the Disco-clad Chiefs.

...IT'S THOSE PANTS!!!!!!!!!

09-24-2000, 10:56 AM
Bob Dole apologizes for the slight, SR. Bob Dole did not do it intentionally.

09-24-2000, 12:44 PM
If the Chiefs come out in the red pants, and they don't return to the same play calling that we've seen prior to last weeks game, then they could help to ease the pain of the 70s and 80s teams that wore those red pants.
For me, however, poor play and losses notwithstanding, I've always liked the red pants. The white pants bring me the memory of playoff losses under Marty. Those losses have been much more painful to me. Those teams in the 70s and 80s may not have been very good, but thay were entertaining, and fun to watch. Or maybe that's just the way I want to remember them.

Could red pants get them in trouble with the fashion police when we go to San Francisco?

Yeah, I know not very PC but at least I didn't I didn't make any innuendoes about the Packers.<BR>

09-24-2000, 01:42 PM
Well, for those of you that wanted red pants you got them. I heard this on the radio and haven't seen them yet but I hop they look better than they did in the 80's.


09-24-2000, 03:03 PM
Red pants look better than the special teams!

09-24-2000, 05:18 PM

I was going to post that I hate the red pants, they make us look like the Redskins. But maybe they're magical. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif


09-24-2000, 05:21 PM
The red pants work for me. I feel SOOOOOOOO good right now!


Have I ever mentioned that I hate Denver?

HUGE win!!! But, NOT huge enough to make me like those damn clown pants!! Blech! http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif<P>

09-24-2000, 05:33 PM
I like em. I think they should be a darker red, as should the numbers, but I think it is much better than the boring all whites. This ain't Wimbledon...

09-24-2000, 07:15 PM
The win was great. The pants were good to see once. But they remind me too much of Steve Fuller, Bill Kenney & Todd Blackledge.

09-24-2000, 07:36 PM
Red pants :


09-24-2000, 07:41 PM
I think we should wear the red pants with the red jerseys. What a look that would be - RED DEATH!


Have I ever mentioned that I hate Denver?

09-24-2000, 07:45 PM
The win?
The red pants?
Disco down.
Reminds me of the bad old days....
Hopefully Carl is not superstitious.
The red pants were on the Chiefs legs in a HUGE win at Denver....

09-24-2000, 07:47 PM
After seeing them on the tube I've decided I don't like the red pants. They look so "dated." If they're magic however, I could deal with that!


09-24-2000, 07:47 PM
I always hated the all white uniform, the red pants are not great, but better then the all white.

09-24-2000, 08:14 PM
They look better in person than they do on TV. They look formidable. I like m as much as the old Giant logo. It's what I grew up with!

09-24-2000, 09:02 PM
I don't like em. We sucked for all those years with those pants and as soon as we got rid of them after '88 we started winning. Call it superstition or whatever.

Still if they are going to wear them I say make them a duller red, not all shiny and make the stripes consistent with the rest of the uniform. Just two white stripes with a yellow one in the middle like on the sleeves.

09-24-2000, 10:28 PM
I like them. They're better than plain white.

09-25-2000, 12:03 AM
I like the Red pants & hope they continue w/ them.
My only suggestion would be to update/change the stripe down the side. It looks a little busy to me but what do I know...

Two thumbs up

I love the rede pants. it took me back to the great Willie Lanier days when the CHIEFS
rocked n roll.

I did not like the "all white" look.
