I'm sure this has been mentioned in other threads, but I looked and didn't see any threads specifically dedicated to it. Anyway, as many of you know, the Chiefs will be hosting Denver on Thanksgiving Day. I was under the impression that the only teams who get home games on T-Day were Dallas and Detroit. It's been that way for years. Is the NFL abandoning that tradition, or is Lamar Hunt just flexing his muscles to get KC added to the list of the priveleged? I'm cornfuzzled!

KC was added. Dallas and Detroit still hosting.

The extraneous thanksgiving day game will likely rotate every year.

They're adding to the tradition so there is actually a game worth watching on Thanksgiving. Now I can spend time with my family during the day, completely ignore the Dallas and Detroit game, and have something worth watching in the evening when things are winding down.

They are changing the tradition by adding a third game to the Thanksgiving day lineup.

The NFL should have, when the AFL and NFL merged, taken Dallas' Thanksgiving game away, and had KC as the second Thanksgiving day game hosts.

One NFC and one AFC team.

If Lamar had any "muscle" that would have happened.
