FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(October 17, 2012)

Organizers behind the Save Our Chiefs movement have designated November 18, 2012 against the Cincinnati Bengals as the official Blackout Arrowhead game. Not a blackout in the traditional sense where the game isn't televised but instead one where the fans wear black to the game. Why a Blackout? To send a visual message that Chief fans are tired of broken leadership and subpar performance on the field. Black is a color commonly attributed to “mourning” which is the state of mind, play and spirit of the Chiefs fan base.

Organizers released this official statement on Wednesday, October 17, 2012:

"We, the donators and supporters of the banner and movement, have been accused of being fair weather fans. This is simply not true. We are passionate fans who live and die with this team on Sunday. If we were fair weather fans, we would have found something else to do a long time ago. Instead, we have gone hoarse by the second quarter and not been able to speak right the next day. We have painted our faces and worn costumes, even formed charitable organizations that have raised tens of thousands of dollars to benefit the local community. We have made life-long friends and are as dedicated a Chiefs fan as anyone else.

We haven't given up the team. We are tired of losing. We are tired of not being competitive. We are tired of seeing Arrowhead as a shell of what it used to be.

We who have been loyal for so long deserve better than what we have received. We have endured 19 painful years with no playoff wins. While it’s acknowledged that the organization has won the AFC West, as recently as 2010, they mean nothing when they are immediately followed by playoff losses. We have had a single appearance in the AFC championship game since 1970 (1993) and we lost. In 1984, the AFC Championship trophy was named "The Lamar Hunt Trophy". How sad is it that we have never once held the trophy that bears our founders name?

Thousands of us remember the desolation of the 80's and it is something we do not want to see repeated. Thousands of us remember going to games in the late 90's and early 00's and feeling the rumble of the crowd in our feet and chest. We would high five and hug total strangers after a touchdown or a clutch defensive stop. We remember being unable to talk to the person next to us on defensive 3rd downs... all because we knew that we could disrupt the opposing offense and inspire our defense.

Our goal with this movement is to create change so we don't end up forgetting those experiences. We ask everyone to attend the Chiefs/Bengals game on November 18 to wear black and cheer for the Chiefs. Send a message that Sea of Red will quickly change and disappear if change isn't made. Arrowhead will once again be empty like it was in the 80s.

You can wear it all year to protest Scott Pioli.

It's a great symbol.

Hell, maybe every home game after Nov. 18 will be blacked out.

And if Pioli isn't fired? Great investment for next year.

I'm buying it to wear it, and I'm buying it to be able to look and remember the time we as fans rose up and said "Enough is enough!" and invoked change. There's some pride to be had here, no matter what happens from here on out.

I so wish I could be there at the stadium. I'm in VA and obviously can't be at Arrowhead but I want to show my support again. I donated to the banner and I will order one of these as well.

Thanks for all the hard work you guys are putting in.

But don't you think the 1-side would be better on the back? Especially for hoodies?

I mean its your world, but it will get a lot more views on the back, IMO (then again, maybe the hood gets in the way....I dunno, I'm not very bright).

This is is how you hold your football team accountable. In late 1988 the Chiefs were steamrolling their way to a 4-11-1 season. Chiefs fans were angry so 810 KCMO Sports DJ ED BIELER said everyone needs to write a letter to Lamar Hunt and demand change. In 1988 The Chiefs had a radio jingle to sell tickets sung by the Kansas City's legandary Blues Vocalist Ida McBeth and it went HARD HITTING GOOD
TIMES KANSAS CITY CHIEFS... Well it was late in the 1988 season and Ed Bieler told everyone to bring signs to the stadium so Lamar could see their signs of unhappiness as well as the letters he was getting in the mail. Thousands of Chiefs fans showed up at Arrowhead that day and many had signs that read SOFT HITTING BAD TIMES KANSAS CITY CHUMPS... One week later Lamar Hunt fired GM Jim Shaff & VP-Jack Steadman. Of course Lamar hung onto Jack Steadman and moved him to a different spot in the orginization. Then the Chiefs hired Carl Peterson before the final game of the 1988 season. The rest was Chiefs history...We are ALL Chiefs fans and we demand a winning product. I totally support this decision for a fly over because Clark Hunt needs to see and experience the same thing his dad experienced. And Clark Hunt needs to see and hear the passion of the fans and make the change. We need a new regime. ... FIRE PIOLI!! Shaggy Shane

1.) Crazy white women in their 50s going through menopause.

2.) Barry and his prozac'd-up Friend.

I wouldn't even give those people another thought. Not any of them. Stop legitimizing their voice. Treat them like the Chiefs are treating SOC.

I saw him up there. He's Shaggy again.

Has there been an estimate on the # of sales so far?

Not nearly enough. Got 3 weeks to make this thing happen. Been wearing mine around town today and getting comments left and right. Even the checkout boy at Price Chopper asked.

I brought this up before, but has Sports Nutz been handing out leaflets or flyers? Seems like a no-brainer. Low cost, and it benefits both SOC and their store. Also, don't know if it's too late to do this, but the online shopping process seems uneven. Why not buy a domain like "blackoutarrowhead.com", create an easy link to find the shirt, and allow people to order online? Right now, I apologize if that's already happened, but right now as I see it, it's not easy for the passive online shopper to get a shirt.

One of the big problems is that there are lots of people who would prefer to buy this stuff online vs. over the phone or in store. Just some thoughts.

Flier needs to be done. As far as an easier, electronic point of purchase... That's out of our hands. There's little doubt that SportsNutz could streamline the process but I'm not sure I see that happening anytime soon.

Cool. I could see that -- the website is a little difficult to navigate, so I imagine they don't have web capability. It still might be simple just to build a simple landing page that gives clear instructions on how to order the shirt, where to go, etc.... If it led to a link where they could order online, even better.

I know that gets confusing because you'd be marketing two names, saveourchiefs and blackoutarrowhead. But it's been my experience in marketing that if you want someone to buy a product, you have to reduce the steps to get that product. Or else people will become lazy and not follow through. This also opens up opportunity to buy some online advertising on google or facebook linking people directly to a site -- I don't know that that's an effective way to advertise SOC, but think it's very effective for blackout shirts. Just some thoughts -- might be too soon to orchestrate for the Cincy game, but something to consider for later home games, as I'd imagine this isn't the last blackout planned.

They're threatening physical violence on Clay should he come to Arrowhead and watch a game. They're emotional about the shit fest this team gives them, and they're taking it out on us.

These dumbshit fanatical homers better watch themselves... if they attempt to do anything to disrupt the Blackout Protest on 11/18, there will be consequences.

How about a marketing insert in the KC Star? This would reach a large # of people with the information.

Ted Massing is the contact for marketing inserts with the KC Star, his direct phone # is 816-234-4193.

It might be worth contacing him to check out pricing and to see if the timing is doable.

A poem for the Blackout:

I see some red seats and I want them painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the fans walk by dressed in their Sunday clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With Romeo and Scott, both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a one and seven start, it happens ev'ryday

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red Chiefs jersey, it's been painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black

No more will my green play field turn a deeper blue
I could not forsee this thing happening to you
If we suck hard enough before the season's done
The NFL will laugh at us before the morning comes

I see some red seats and I want them painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the fans walk by dressed in their Sunday clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
Hmm, hmm, hmm...

I wanna see it painted black, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun, blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black
Yeah

Hmm, hmm, hmm...

Bevis, not really but we'll take the hit. With something like this the worst thing you can do is order a bunch of product and NOT sell it. So we started off with small batches (180 pieces) to manage the risk. Now with tonight's game in the shitter, demand will increase and we'll order more. The printer is on standby already to fulfill new orders.

I do apologize this has not been easy for you.

I can't help but notice the overwhelming female population that doesn't understand the SOC movement. They don't get it at all. Yet they will sit there and try to defend their bullshit opinions on it.

I applaud the girls who understand what SOC is trying to do, and actually want something done as well.

The detractors are mostly from a specific group of fans who fancy themselves the best fans in the lot. If SOC had been their idea, they'd be all fine and dandy with a blackout idea. The girls I know on the street think the idea is awesome and they want to know where to buy a shirt.

Marty and Eric...what's stopping you guys from opening an eBay store and selling these on it?

I mean, really...you already have 100,000 prospective clients and it could be sold as a "buy it and it will be made and shipped to your door within x amount of days...make sure to order in time for the blackout."

You really wouldn't even need a eBay store to do this, just a resale liscence and a couple people to manage the logistics.

Not only no but hell no. Sportsnutz is handling logistics. Badly but that's their baby. They can sell as many as they want but I've met the employees. There's not going to be an ebay store and there's not likely enough margin to hire somebody to do this.

Having Sports Nutz selling them for us was a big part of draw because we were helping a local business. Selling the things ourselves on ebay would undermine that.

Better yet would be to see if sports nutz would open the ebay store. Might help them manage all the orders.

Don't take what Sportnutz is doing for granted. You aren't going to find many people that are willing to take on the task and still be able to crank out the shirts in a short window. The logistics of the actual shirt inventory isn't as simple as people want to pretend.

It's far from ideal, especially for people out of town that want them, but its not like these shirts are the make or break aspect of the blackout.

Called Sportnutz yesterday, they just got a new shipment of hoodies, ordered a large one (and a t-shirt for a coworker) and they said they would ship it today. :clap:

Bevis, I left my name and number earlier in the week and still haven't received a call back so you may want to call before they run out of stock again. It seems to be the hoodie they are having trouble keeping up with.
