We were feared under Marty at Arrowhead (excluding the playoffs)

Gunthers were marginal...

DV's teams werent to shabby...

Herms were laughable at best...

How could the Raiders possibly be considered? A bunch of parolee cross-dressing freaks pounding on the seat in front of them doesn't make a place tough. The only team that finds it tough to win there is the Raiders.

Truer words have never been spoken. We need Arrowhead to be a freaking buzzsaw for teams. Remember when they threatened us with penalties for it? That's what I'm talking about. Monday Night Football Derrick Thomas noise.

DV's team really killed it I think, I mean really, nothing like lining CB's 10 yards off on 3rd and 2 to waste some crowd noise.

Several times in the mid 90's they did... I recall during a Raiders game, they were complaining about the noise? Maybe a Denver game...

The white hat came over the intercom and threatened the crowd about a 15 yard penalty...

Did nothing but make the stadium that much louder....

It was quite amazing back in the day.

It just takes the wind out of the crowd when the opposing team converts 3rd downs as frequently as they do now.

Don't look for it to get any louder, though. The more corporate a stadium gets the quieter it gets. Mile High was nuts, but when I went to a game back in 03 at Invesco with a one loss Chiefs team vs a 3 loss Denver team late in the season I was very disappointed.


The corporate movement kills home field advantage.

When you only have three winning seasons out of the last ten, I'd say it's pretty easy to win if your a visiting football team.

Stop it man .... You're giving me goose bumps.

I remember going to games in the early 90's and it was so friggn loud you couldn't hear yourself think in the stands. I can only imagine how loud it was for the players with 80,000 people screaming down towards them.

I DO remember SmElway backing off from center because NO ONE on the line could hear a cadence.

DAMN those were good times.

yes, Arrowhead is a shell of its former self today. Part of it is you have long time hard core fans like Nzoner, onthewarpath59 and myself no longer attending every home game. But the main thing is just winning or believing you have a chance to win. When we would be yelling, screaming etc we felt that we could effect the game, help alter the outcome. That feeling is gone.

But, the Donks on Thanksgiving night Arrowhead rocked like the days of old, so maybe those days can return.

It helps a fans desire to cheer when you believe your team has a shot at winning and the game counts for something besides a shot at a lower or higher draft pick. When's the last time that happened?

I know it's hard to look at this team objectively at times. I'm not saying you in particular and I used to have this problem myself but this team has been horrible. Embarrassing, out of their league bunch of monkeys running the show embarrassing ****ing horrible.

There hasn't been anything to cheer for come game time. Their lucky they weren't demoted to arena football.

But something good came out of that; senile Peterson and his "buddy network" got the boot and we have what we have now: Cautious hope for the future.

This team didn't deserve to be cheered or supported for the last couple years.

Yes, I remember that. Was that the Monday Night Football game with Joe Montana vs John Elway at Arrowhead circa 1993? If so, I was at that game. My first ever Chiefs game. Unbelievable atmosphere.

Threaten hell. The DID penalize us against the Donks one time. That pussy Elway was crying to the refs about it and I think they penalized us five yards after a warning had been issued. The crowd was louder than ever after that and Horseface wanted another penalty and the refs wouldn't do it again.

It pains me to see Arrowhead billed as the loudest stadium in the NFL. We have not been even close to that in quite a while.

Sofa King
08-27-2009, 07:30 AM
there was a Seattle game where the refs threatened the crowd too... then some idiot on the defense did the "pump up" hand pumps and the refs hit him with a penalty... then the next play he did the "quiet down" hand movements... pretty funny... sucked then though..



EDIT: could that have been the Denver game that dartgod speaks of?

That was another check in the column for me hating Denver. Horse face was the only QB that I remember being pussy enough to cry for the call.

Herm sure sucked the joy out of watching football for me. I gave up my season tickets and frequently turned off the TV last year.

Loudest I've ever heard Arrowhead was the Denver game a few years ago. The NFL Network televised Thanksgiving game when CCR played at halftime.

I've heard it loud in Arrohead before.....but that game lifted the decible level another level. My ears hurt a few times that game. And we officially retired Jake Plummer that game. Our whole section started a Jake Plummer sucks chant......sitting behind the Rat, and about a qtr later Jay Cutler went in to play the rest of the game. LOL

I hear you.
I started DVRing all the games and watching them delayed. That way I could FF and turn 3.5 hours of pain and suffering into >1 hour of pain and suffering.
I still watched every game but it helped to not give up a big chunk of my Sunday afternoon just to watch the Chiefs suck.

I will never, for as long as I live, forget the images of Herm squinting up to the scoreboard in his Chiefs beanie cap wondering why the hell the other team scored......AGAIN. Fuck, that pisses me off.

The Arrowhead advantage needs to return and it will, but only when this team is more competitive. I remember when there was absolutely NO QUESTION where the best home field advantage was....Arrowhead. Teams dreaded coming in to Kansas City. Nowadays, opposing teams seem to convert on 3rd down a lot more often and have less trouble when at the line.....

As for the Raiders being one of the "Toughest Venues", I imagine it's a lot tougher for fans attending than the players. The players on the field are safe from random stabbings....not so much for that poor guy wearing the bright red Chiefs shirt in the 17th row.

I could see why Oakland is one of the top five. However, it's not because it's a tough place for other teams to play in. It's because it's a tough place to try to stay alive in if you are rooting for the visiting team...You will probably be kicked, punched, shanked, stabbed, shot and/or killed if you attend the game in another teams apparel!

The loudest for me was the game/play when Dante returned the Denver kick for a touchdown after reversing field a million times. I was in the nosebleeds and it was deafening up there, so I can only imagine what it was like on the field.

I remember that game.
There was a Steelers linebacker (can't think of his name) that got ejected from the game, took a razzing as he headed for the tunnel, and momentarily thought it would be a good idea to climb into the stands to confront his detractors. He was discouraged of the idea rather quickly and took his sob story to the locker room.

Meadowlands (can get loud and unruly)
Broncos ('cause it's a mile high)
Lambeau (weather can be abysmal)
Buffalo (weather can be abysmal)
