choice quote:
The fans' ire may not be entirely due to the beating they endured in Pittsburgh, or their 2-3 record going into this week's home game against San Diego. Some might even argue that Kansas City fans have been remarkably patient.

Week after week they snap up almost every ticket to Arrowhead Stadium, which seats more than 79,000. Voters in Jackson County earlier this year approved a sales tax to pay for more than $500 million in improvements to Arrowhead and Kauffman stadiums.

That's a lot of support to lavish on an organization that hasn't won a playoff game since the 1993 season, that has appeared in the postseason only once since 1997, that raises ticket prices almost every year and plans a $3.50 surcharge on parking costs that already start at $20.

are we gwtting screwed hard, without the reach around?

Ticket price inflation is a reality in the NFL, like it or not. It's a money-making venture. We're not getting screwed any worse than anyone anywhere else.

Not to mention all the crap we spend on Chiefs apparel. Or getting the biggest baddest tv HD ready and Sunday Ticket just to watch the Chiefs get blown out. There's always next year I guess. Me so horny.
