View Full Version : Fans being upset at us for the "Home of the Chiefs"

After 9/11 I cheered the NY Giants team as they ran out onto the field and said "Home of the brave" during the national anthem.

I always say "Home of the Chiefs" at Arrowhead.I talked with a couple of Indy fans during the pre game festivites about how they felt about it. One didn't know what I was talking about and the other said it didn't bother him.

This has been discussed in great detail on this board. The veterans who served our country and put themselfs in harms way for the homeland had no problem with it.

I said "Home of the Chiefs" at Indy. It seemed to genuinely hurt some people. Made them think that I was being disrespectful to the soldiers on the field at the time. Disrespectful to the people who died defending that flag.This is America. We can descrate the flag, burn it whatever in the name of free speech. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Even though I don't think its disrespectful and I have a right to do it in a visitors stadium I will never do that again on the road. It's not our place. Its not our home, we are visitors. I wouldn't want a visitor coming into my house and offending me.

I don't think that the Chief fans that will continue to say "Home of the Chiefs" on the road are making a poor choice and or are wrong. It's just my choice.

I will continue to say "Home of the Chiefs" at arrowhead. It's our thing. It's our stadium. It's our home.

There were articles/letters in the KC paper heres some more flack


The thousands of Chiefs fans visiting our city and attending the AFC playoff game made a mockery of our national anthem by screaming “home of the Chiefs” instead of “home of the brave,” the way it was written.

This may be “tradition” in Kansas City, but in Indianapolis it is disrespectful and disgraceful. Turning our nation’s anthem into a team chant, especially while Colts were honoring members of our military on the field, turns my stomach.

Chief fans, shame on you.

P.S. How about that Larry Johnson!

----------------------------------------------------------

I thought some Chiefs fans were very “bush league” in their actions during the national anthem at the Colts game Saturday. On the field were men and women from all branches of the military. When we sang “...and the home of the brave,” your fans yelled “Chiefs” instead.

How disrespectful.

Try to show some couth in the future.

Look it up if you don’t know what couth is.

It doesn't bother me when people do it, but I just don't. I'd never replace the stars on an American flag with fifty Chiefs helmets either. America is the home of the brave and the Kansas City Chiefs along with many other things, and fifty Chiefs helmets can be used to symbolize the fifty united states in our country, but it's just not something I'd do, maybe it has to do with the fact that I was raised (and will raise my own kids this way) that when the anthem is being sung, you stand perfectly damn still, looking at a star on the flag, shut the **** up, or sing respectfully along.

Actually they yell it at every home game both football and bball. They even booed King Carl at one of the games. People will always find something to complain about. The Colts fans I went with thought it was cool and they all said that if they didn't want to hear it they wont let most of the upper deck be bought by the opposing team.

It seems to me that, if it's that important to a person, that individual should shout it out several times throughout the day. On your way to work, right after receiving the check for lunch, and during an afternoon meeting, perhaps.

In this way, critics will eventually become immune to the idea having heard offending chant thousands of times a year and these pre-game complaints will cease.

I think what may have amped up the feelings of disrespect was that there was a lot of active soldiers on the field and they were being honored.

As for disrespect, I know what's in my heart and what my intent is. I'm not going to let some douchebag that roots for the Colts or any other team try to tell me it's something it isn't.

I've chanted it at Arrowhead and at Qualcomm. I've never really thought about whether it's a home or away thing - it's a Chiefs thing.

But in my mind, I never really related it to the U.S. Military. If it's offensive to our soldiers, I'd stop doing it, period. But so far, it looks like it's only civilians chiming in.

As for those idiots chanting "home of the Chiefs" outside of Arrowhead stadium or a Chiefs sporting event, they're a perfect example of classless fans. And for all this talk of certain players being classless - that's about as classless and stupid as they come.

It is funny how before 9/11 people would talk through the National Anthem, not salute, and nobody stood up for colors at the beginning of a parade then all of a sudden 9/11 comes alone and you have all of the bandwagon patriots that want to get offended. These are the same jackasses that put the US Flags in the windows of their cars completely dirty and torn and are too ignorant to even know that they are disrespecting the flag.

The USS Enterprise was doing a PR visit to Tampa in either '99 or 2000, and a couple hundred of us went to the Chiefs game. We Chiefs fans all sat together and yelled Chiefs, and nobody got offended.

Yeah, there are bandwagon fans, so what? We need them to get loud and they do. Hell, this has been such a great season that its going to be impossible for some people to hop off of the bandwagon. Plus its not like we are gonna suck any time soon.

Sorry, your a great fan but the majority of your Charger brethren are lame ass fans. You don't deserve the best team in football. Real hard core football fans like KC should get to expereince a super Bowl sometime. Every team has bandwagoneers but we don't need them to sell out our stadium. you do.

I'm a vet, don't find it disrespectful. Their just nickpicking to nick pick.

In Dallas last year there were a lot of chief fans, it was awesome. some cowboy fans around me, including a friend that went to the game with me (he was wearing a dallas jersey) all thought that it sounded kinda neat. They also thought it was cool that so many chief fans were even there.

It didn't sound as cool as hearing it at arrowhead, but it is anything but disrespectful, home or away. If we are representing enough of the crowd, keep doing it I'd say.

If they don't like it, maybe they should try selling the stadium out with their own fans. It's a football game for pete's sake. It's not like it's being done at a military funeral.

[QUOTE=BigRedChief]There were articles/letters in the KC paper heres some more flack


The thousands of Chiefs fans visiting our city and attending the AFC playoff game made a mockery of our national anthem by screaming “home of the Chiefs” instead of “home of the brave,” the way it was written.

This may be “tradition” in Kansas City, but in Indianapolis it is disrespectful and disgraceful. Turning our nation’s anthem into a team chant, especially while Colts were honoring members of our military on the field, turns my stomach.

Chief fans, shame on you.

P.S. How about that Larry Johnson!

If your team wasn't moving anyway, I'd send INS to the dolt game next year....then half the stadium would be available for Chief fans again.

And Qualcomm is the Home of the Chargers so quit complaining about the Ticketmaster thing.

They're just pissed they didn't think of it first.
That's exactly right. Here's a quote from a thread on the Colts.com message board.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I hate to say this, but with 9K tiks on sale on Ebay and Stubhub, we will more than likely be in a hostile environment, especially the upper decks.

I'd like to start the anthem with our COLTS in place of the brave , granted its something comical, but puts a bad taste in the mouth, when I hear a visiting team revelling... I respect their fans, and admire arrowhead, but hey, this is OUR house. No doubt they will know that early and often, but I'd like to make it a point.

That said, whaddaya say we negate their one positive and either replace Brave with COLTs or start screaming like a hockey game at the start of the anthem and drowned them out entirely...

Not like we don't pass out towels when we play the Steelers, might be a nice addition to our pummeling come Saturday.

I have always stood with the belief that Arrowhead is in America. I see the butchering of our national anthem as an offense to every American. That's just the way I am. I have not yelled "home of the Chiefs" at any game and will never do so. I do feel sorry for those that feel they can disrespect everything our history stands for by using that one little phrase.

I was at the first game after 9/11 and was embarassed for America, the State of Missouri and Kansas City. It just validates the me generation is now making rules against the norm to fit with what they think is right regardless of who it offends.

WTF? At the NY game in Arrowhead I didn't hear a "Chiefs" I heard the brave. And it was the only time ever, that a visiting team was cheered coming out of the tunnel.

I'm not going to yell it anymore on the road as a personal choice and sign of respect. But to say you feel sorry for people that do it at Arrowhead? Where is the moral sin being committed?

you don't remember the fans putting money in the firemen boots? Chiefs fans stepped up that day...raised over 300k if I remember correctly.

It's a game. It's friggen entertaiment. I'm embarassed for those who are so sensitive they expect everyone around them to conform to their tiptoe through life mantra.

I know the Indy fan didn't give a crap about spilling alcohol all over the flag on my costume.

You seem to be confused with giving in time of need and disrespecting something of great value in our society. Even the scum of the earth would give if they had money in times like that, and no I'm not calling anyone at the game the scum of the earth.

The game is entertainment, the national anthem is not. I would guess if you were raised with the same type of patriotism impressed as some of the others in the country your outlook might be a little different.

As for your flag on costume, did you know it is improper to display the flag in such manner? I'll look for the information about the proper display of the flag and let you determine if you are basically wrong in your method of display. Yes I know that in recent years there has been many displays that do not match the "rules for proper display" but recent actions don't necessarily make something right.

I've stated an opinion and position. I have never expected anyone to follow what I do, if you read it that way I'd guess that there is some underlying guilt about the way you handle life for yourself.

It is extremely apparent you weren't listening. The Chiefs did ask that the crowd NOT sing HOME OF THE CHIEFS, but there was at least enough that did not listen to them to drown out the Home of the Brave when it was sung. Are you sure you were at the game in 1991?

Excuse me? Raised with the same type of patriotism? Would that include volunteering for service when the hostages were in Iran....on the delayed entry program, joining two weeks after I graduated high school?

I'm interested in the etiquette of flag display..but does that condone his actions? I'm curious to see if the displayis more offensive to you than the disrespect...

I'm assuming you meant 2001.
I've been a season ticket holder since 1995. I've missed 3 games during that time including exibition games and the post 9/11 game was not one of them. I don't remember the Chiefs asking anyone not to do it. It was talked about among Chief fans and we voluntarily decided not to that.

You are heading in the wrong direction. I think you need to read what is written without adding in your own sentiment or interpetation of what you thought the underlying agenda is.

People from certain time frames were raised to have more respect for the country than, apparently, you were according to your remark.

If you don't remebmer what was said over the loud speaker directly BEFORE the National Anthem was sung you weren't paying attention. There was quite a bit of discussion in our immediate area after, as stated, enough shouted it out enough to drown out the actual words.

BTW, being a season ticket holder places you in no more postion to be an expert than the guy that buys a single game ticket.

You need to thicken up your skin. I wasn't pointing you out, in general, as you say your comment was. Am I not granted the same general comments as you are?

Disrespect of the country knows no age, I was pointing out that people raised in different times were taught differently. Hell, when I was in school you could say the Pledge of Allegiance without being sued for praying in school!

Did the guy pour the beer on the American flag on your costume only or did he pour the beer on a Chiefs fan that happened to be wearing a flag and got some on it?

You must not have met any vets that are not Chiefs fans.

I know quite a few vets that are Chiefs fans that find it insulting.

What is insulting to one person is not to anohter, if you don't believe that find all of the discussions about this very topic and you will see what I mean.

I am more insulted by Clinton and his draft dodging than I am about somenone not removing their hat when the National Anthem is played.
