Just ventin here, like everyone else. For the first time in 20 years of being a season ticket holder, I left at halftime. The coaching was so embarrasing that I asked the wife if she cared if we left. Home we went. I was really excited to watch a young team be coached well, and now I have no hope of that. So, I was sitting there asking my wife, " what the hell did I used to do on sundays before 1989?" I came to the conclusion that I am going to be doing alot more hunting, fishing, and work around the place on sundays. I am not going out there again until there is a substantial increase in the level of coaching and play. I am not thinking that will be this year either. Anyhow, since I already bought the tix, I may go out for a few tailgates then just go home and watch or do something else. sorry, just had to vent

He makes a good point. If Raider week was a waste of time, what does the rest of the season offer?
I mean, we know we'll watch, we'll cheer, we'll get our hopes up and our emotions down until January, but there is something wrong here that goes beyond youth and inexperience.

I stay until the final tick of the clock no matter what. Only games I have ever left early are the preseason games.

Sad days, Mr. tooge.

On the other hand, as you say, your Sundays will prove more productive and, likely, more interesting than they've been in a long while. You know, most people greet Monday morning as the same person they were when they bid farewell to Friday afternoon having made no advance either physically, intellectually, emotionally, or spiritually. You now have an opportunity to change that for yourself which means you could be President or own a chain of liquor stores someday. Congratulations.

I made the trip from Omaha, and for the first time found myself having an urge to leave...I only make the trip once a year, but this was friggin' bad.

...instead of leaving, I went down and got better seats, since all the people who payed a lot more than me already left...I was in the endzone when TG scored...so there's that...

ok with that out of the way...

Hunt needs to clean house. I, for one, hope that the Chiefs keep losing. I hope we lose every game. The 2008 Chiefs are an embarrassment to every previous Chiefs team. If they really want to clean house and rebuild, what better way to send a statement to the owner that something needs to be done NOW.

I dont think Hunt has the balls to remove Peterson this year. Peterson will be here for a long time, hes a legacy of brokenness that just shows how much of a loser the team really is.

When will the Chiefs begin a rebuild? When Hunt has the nerve to remove Peterson, fire Herm Edwards, and actually draft a QB in the first round, rather than pull wide receivers from other teams practice squads and expect them to play against a team that has coach turmoils.

I disagree. This bunch is so cynical, once you've paid for your season tickets they could give a flying *****. They figure all they'll need is another high draft with a QB, and the waiting list will be back in a year or two. They've made enough money off the suckers over the past 20 years that they can weather a year or two or three or more of suck teams. Hell, they're $30 mill under the salary cap. As I've said before "team building" includes stadium renovation, and that's what its all about right now. Once the stadium is done, tickets go up AGAIN, and they'll make their money back. They just have to field an 8-8 team by 2010 and the waiting list will be back in vogue.

So, am I little Mary Sunshine this AM or what?

Just because you are young and rebuilding it doesn't have to loook like this. Green Bay is in a small market. They are even younger than us.They got a new coach the same year we did even coached here in KC.

Right on Tooge !

We expect young rookie mistakes. But we expect the team to be coached at an NFL level. We expect the veterans to be used to their upmost potential to make up for rookie let downs. We expect to have backup qb's who have at least a small shot at winning or even competing in an NFL game.

Rebuilding or not Herm and Carl forgot that this team still plays in the N F L .

And when you get stomped by a piss poor Raiders team IN ARROWHEAD while playing a Coastal Carolina QB or a washed up couldn't hack it running back behind center, you are NO LONGER THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS.

So you just pay to sit there and watch a crappy product? Alot of folks just go out there to get a good buzz on, and that is ok for them. I want to watch a good football product, preferrably a winning one, but certainly one that is well coached and has a chance week in and week out. That isn' t what we have here is it?

Obviously, it's difficult to "read" someone via television and I've never met Clarkie in person that I'm aware, but he strikes me as someone who doesn't like to be laughed at or scorned. In fact, in my travels through the byways of life, I've found that the children of the wealthy often share that characteristic. If true, he will eventually tire of Herm, but the fans could potentially speed up the process a great deal.

I gave mine up about 5 years ago. That's at least $16,000 in my pocket. If you had that much cash sitting in your checking account right now, would you blow it all at once to have experienced 2004-2008 at arrowhead?

I gave mine up when Herm was hired, and I loved those seats. Upper deck, 45 yard line, perfect view, great guys sitting around us.

I've talked to those guys who are still there, and they said that nobody has purchased our seats as season tickets, just single gamers. I'm pretty sure that if CP was fired and they hired someone competent, I could call up and get similar tickets, just like I did when Schottenheimer was hired. But you have to make the call right after the new guy is hired. If you wait to see how the new guy does, and they end up going 10-6 the first year, you'll be screwed if you try jumping on the bandwagon late.

Just ventin here, like everyone else. For the first time in 20 years of being a season ticket holder, I left at halftime. The coaching was so embarrasing that I asked the wife if she cared if we left. Home we went. I was really excited to watch a young team be coached well, and now I have no hope of that. So, I was sitting there asking my wife, " what the hell did I used to do on sundays before 1989?" I came to the conclusion that I am going to be doing alot more hunting, fishing, and work around the place on sundays. I am not going out there again until there is a substantial increase in the level of coaching and play. I am not thinking that will be this year either. Anyhow, since I already bought the tix, I may go out for a few tailgates then just go home and watch or do something else. sorry, just had to vent

I made this argument a long time ago and people called me bandwagon because I'm not with the team during hard times.

I'm still with the team. I'm just not gonna dish out 80-90 bucks on a ticket (double that if I'm taking my bonehead gf) and another $20 or so on parking and another 10-20 on food throughout the game.

Thats $220 per game.....then multiply that by 8 games, almost $1800.00

Sorry...but the shit we've seen since Herm's been here.......nothing Chiefs related is worth that kind of money. I'll find better options with that kind of money.....like a kickass vacation......not sit in a stadium watching the kind of football you dread watching at a pee wee game.

Chiefs and Co. can kiss my ****ing ass.........just like the Royals, they aren't getting anymore of my money until level of play and coaching proves they are worth that of a professional team. As soon as the team can coach and play like a pro team, then maybe they can start recieving pro money again.

As for your investment in season tickets.....all I can say or do is laugh my ass off at you because that's one EXPENSIVE tailgate. Maybe it's worth it to you........not to me or anyone else that is sane.

At least Roylas tickets are cheap enough it doesn't really put a hole in your pocket........they still suck ass though.

Donate you tix to the Boys club, or someother organization that can put them to good use. Then go tailgate with your friends, then go home. That way, it is a win win.

He makes a good point. If Raider week was a waste of time, what does the rest of the season offer?
I mean, we know we'll watch, we'll cheer, we'll get our hopes up and our emotions down until January, but there is something wrong here that goes beyond youth and inexperience.I actually got to Tivo that thing.

First down, run off right guard, 2 yd gain. 2nd down, run off left tackle no gain. 3rd down, quick pass about 5 yards, batted, deflected, and otherwise awkwardly disrupted incomplete pass followed by punt.

ALL DAY LONG. Stoic Herm on sidelines. YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME DUMASS. This is the team you fielded after 3 FREAKING YEARS? You got to the playoffs with DV's team and have been in reverse ever since.

You suck as a coach, all the Jets trolls warned us, they were right, nothing is going to change running up the butt of the guards until this foo is gone.

This is probably the most disturbing thing I've ever read on the Planet. I don't know to laugh or cry or throwup.

Yeah I am all for a rebuild of this team and canning CP..

But what Herm is doing is despicable.. He is not even trying to field a competent team.. What is with some of the play calling on both sides of the ball?? If I know what is going on at home, then shouldn't the coaches???

Herm has neutered this team on both sides.. No toughness on defense and no brains on offense..

This needs to be a learning year for the players, not a joke with stupid plays that have zero chance at success..

I like the idea of sendng the season tickets back with a letter in all, but you've paid for them and I really dont think they'd care. The Planeteers who are truely tired of this should picket outside the stadium, draw some attention might get some to join while there, and get some media attention.:cuss:
