View Full Version : ChiefsPlanet Appreciation for "the movement"

Sorry not a poop thread.

I know a lot of people have expressed their appreciation to those responsible for the movement in motion by us fans in the stickys and that's awesome, but a lot of that gets buried. Some folks will see this as a waste of bandwidth because of that, which is fair, but imo what has been done and continues to be done moving forward is worth a place to just say thanks.

pr_capone started it all and continues as the driving force. I'm not sure he even knew the impact his actions were going to have in the beginning.

Marty Mac Ver 2.0 is taking the ball and running.

GoChiefs has been working on a video that is said to be epic (with the help of others I believe)

As a Chiefs fan who isn't local to the KC area anymore but is just as sick and tired of the state of the team over the last several years it's inspiring to see the best fans on earth not only say enough is enough, but actually put their actions and efforts where their mouth is (and money).This may end up not only being the greatest fan movement of all time but may actually help bring change in the end.

I don't have the extra funds to help right now but seeing the banner, the media coverage, the action taking place is just as satisfying to me as it is to you all who are donating and working to make this cause happen.

So thank you for taking it upon yourselves to make a difference. All of us "true Chiefs fans" are following along and cheering it on. It's great to see. Those who don't get it are part of the problem.

I know I left people out so feel free to name names. All this effort deserves our thanks, appreciation and praise.

I can confirm the video is amazing but it's a little bit bigger than that. A Nashville based Chiefs fan wrote a song and performs it, Clay put his video twist on it which is pure genius but this is the artist's baby. Hope to have it up tomorrow if everything goes smoothly tonight.

I'm sorry if I missed it in the stickys, but what will the video be used for? Just posted here? Going out other places?

It's a SOC anthem. Local media is involved. It's done well. Professional singer, professional writer, amateur/stupid co-writer, professionally produced, amateur/stupid co-produced, and some other stuff. Hopefully it will blow up. Clay did a really nice job putting his twist on it. I wish I could show it now but the current video is using the rough cut and isn't ready. We don't want that one going viral. Heh.

I don't think we've had any differences. I didn't really do anything except put some people together on this thing. I'm good at that. I did help write. I was good at that too, I think. But I think the artist deserves most of the credit on this one. I should probably shut up and let the stupid video come out. If it sucks I just look stupid.

Because most fans of other teams don't come here to be cool. It's just a thing we're used to. There are some that do and are active members/contributors but that isn't the rule.

No rival fan can put us in our place like we can though.

This is a fan base truly sick of the shit we've put up with. As you've probably noticed we're done putting up with it. Any rival team fan who thinks they can show up here and make us feel bad is sadly mistaken. Their hate has nothing on us. Hence my thread to thank those who are making this uprising happen.

Want to talk shit on the Chiefs? Join the effort then.

After the Chiefs traded for Herm some fans came over and tried to explain what he was like. Many were jerks and got banned, some weren't and gave up. I stayed and watched to watch the chiefs burn but after a while began to like this place, must be brain damage I think. Because of this place I want the chiefs to genuinely do well. I lurked until the idiocy of BlackBob was so much I had to post and haven't looked back

There are teams who have been worse than us but I challenge any of them to have as passionate a fanbase. KC fans deserve better... just like the banner said.

You guys, the founders of this movement, are the reason why I decided to quit being a lurker. You are the reason why I decided to donate my hard earned money to people I don't know and will probably never meet. It's very, very rare to find individuals on the Internet that actually put their money where their mouth is. Especially on the Internet. Most people spend their time behind an anonymous name, saying and doing things they would never do in real life. Your passion, effort, dedication and personal time being spent to try to make a meaningful change to something that most other people can only complain about, means the world to me. I'm a 47 year old long time season ticket holder that has finally found an avenue to to vent my frustrations in a way that I know will have some meaning. Hopefully someday I can watch the team that I've grown to expect to disappoint me, actually make me proud. If that day ever comes, it will be in part because of what you guys started here.
Whether you want to hear it or not.......
Thank You!

So you weren't one of the ones that came over here to pat us on the head and patronize us?

That was one of the darkest periods in the history of this board.

No. I thought about it but decided against it. Mainly because the Pats fans did the same to us after getting Mangini. You are completely correct in saying that is the worst way to be treated. I may have said a thing or two but I never tried to rub in peoples faces.

Good post! I was thinking of doing something similar after I read a couple anti-Pioli articles on ESPN today. Some Chiefs fans--and some on CP in particular--really took matters into their own hands and made a huge difference in terms of the future of this franchise, and we all owe you guys a ton of thanks. The sooner our Chiefs move beyond this Pioli/Cassel disaster, the sooner we can begin to move forward, and I feel like people like pr capone and others really made an impact in causing that to happen sooner than it would have if everyone would have just sat quietly.

Thanks guys. Thanks for the positive impact you've had on the Chiefs.
