I doubt it. Too much money was invested into the stadium just a few years ago. Arrowhead sitting empty would be a disaster for the millions dollar investment.

Think the Hunt's would sell first while the team stayed in KC or finally start spending money and get the brain power in to build a team. Fans made change happen last time when they stopped going to the games. It all comes down to the almighty dollar.

Something is wrong and it's not the players. Our head coach, as nice of a guy as he is, is near retirement and never won a single playoff game. What's making people, including the millionaires in charge of this think he's going to accomplish any differnt at this point with double duty?

The A's moved for one reason: Charley Finley was determined to move the team. He thought California would be a gold mine. He was proven wrong when the Royals drew more fans than the Oakland A's.

The Kansas City A's sucked the entire time they were here. They traded most of their best players to the Yankees when Arnold Johnson owned the team, and attendance wasn't good. When Finley moved the team, they had an awesome group of young players ready to start winning. It really sucks that Finley was able to move the A's out of Kansas City.

It's not going to be the Chiefs but I'm not sure fan support will be the final factor. The Browns moved and the fans supported them. There's probably a lot of money to be made in luxury suites and all that jazz in LA. Even if they didn't draw as well as the Chiefs did, Clark would probably make more than enough money selling suites at a bazillion dollars a pop to make up for a selling a few less $80 tickets.

I was saying it makes sense in that both of his franchises would be in the same city. He already owns the Rams and Avalanche (although his ownership in the Avalanche is set up through one of his kid already, isn't it). I don't see the NFL owners not agreeing to let Kroenke buy his way back into the league, especially if his selling of the Rams gets the NFL back into LA.

Would it be worth it to lose the Chiefs to LA and wait 10 years to get a new team just so that we can rid ourselves of Clark?


That's a tough one......

We?

:D

Seriously bro?

Please elaborate. Maybe I don't understand the financial situation that OKC is enduring but I would like more depth than this reply

Amazing how when the heat gets super hot on Clark Hunt, the "Chiefs to LA possibilities" suddenly get floated on message boards and other random Internet media.

Perhaps it is worth checking to see if the IP address for the dumbshit OP originates from the PR department at One Arrowhead Drive.

Thanks for the elaboration. So how does that make the potential nfl team different from the Thunder?

Or perhaps I heard it on the radio and questioned if it could be true?

Fuckface.

I think it could happen if things don't change in the next couple of years. However, I think Hunt has a lease on the stadium through 2020 at least.... If it happens, it would be a while.

OKC would put a ton of people in the stands. OU and OSU put a shitload of people in their stands. It would happen.

As for the Cowboy town reference, if OKC gets an NFL team, all the Cowboy fans will turn into OKC NFL fans. Same thing that happened to Mavs fans when the Thunder came to town.

Wow. The Chiefs are never leaving KC. It will NEVER happen. I understand everyone's concerns about the team because they are justified but this is going a little too far. LMAO

No.

Though if people stop going to games, and Arrowhead becomes a ghost town, Clark Hunt will have to make a change somewhere. Lamar did in the late 80's.

Did it bring us a SB trophy? No...but we went to the AFC championship game and were a regular playoff contender and it brought back a great football atmosphere due to the product that was on the field. In the end the Hunt family made themselves a shit ton of money for the next couple decades or so because of it.

There comes a point (especially now with a bad economy/people have less $$ to spend on extra curricular activities/entertainment) where the product on the field isn't worth the money spent. I've pretty much reached that point w/ the Chiefs, and reached that point a long time ago w/t the Royals. Until this franchise "shows-me" they're willing to do what it takes to win, I'm not going to spend a dime on them. I'm not paying $30 for parking, I'm not paying $70 for a ticket, I'm not paying $15-20 for concessions, and not going to risk my health and well being (let's face it, I yell and drink a lot on gameday at Arrowhead, which leads me feeling like shit w/ a hoarse voice on Monday).


I'm borderline done w/ this team. Once that line is crossed I'll go root for my 2nd team (Chicago Bears).

Yeah, but he could pass the ownership of the Avalanche to his son, thus clearing the way for purchasing the Broncos.
Pretty sure he did that or already has to by a certain date.
Josh is or will be owner of the other sports teams. Iirc.

And when Stan kroenke bought the rams it was to move them to la. Selling them to aeg and buying the broncos would make sense I guess.

I'm only an hour and a half from Los Angeles. That would be awesome. That means all you Kansas Citians will have to come to Cali for some shit BBQ or Amercian Mexican food.

Because the Thunder is a NBA franchise.

God no. As much as they are on my bad side I would never want the Chiefs anywhere but KC.
