View Full Version : Chiefs Re-Developing The Spinal Column

09-06-2000, 05:18 PM
Like many of you, I found little positive these last few days, until now.

In classic shock radio tactics, Fat Albert DEMANDS that Gunther resign as he is not acting as a head football coach .... never mind the fact that holding up signs in rival stadiums calling the QB gay is not acting as a sportswriter. Gunther confronts Whitlock today, getting within an inch of his face and saying "I'm not blinking now". Instead of addressing the issue and repeating his request for Gunther to step down, Fat Albert plays cowardly lion and merely asks, "How do you feel about your statements over the last couple of days".

Next Duane Clemons steps past Fat Albert stares at him and says, "What are you looking at FAT A$$?". Whitlock is actually stupid enough to admit he did not realize it was Duane Clemons as he does not know what he looks like.

Finally Tim Grunhard gives a soundbyte to the Jerry Springer of sports radio and says that 810 is as bad as Rey Sanchez in getting their stories right, only connecting on an average of .205.

<fontcolor = red>SMACK, BAM, POW<fontcolor = black>

Right or Wrong, I loved seeing the heat come out of the team and staff.

It is nice to see the team finally develop some backbone and strike back. Now they need to realize that the offending station is small beans and turn that anger on their next opponents.

Puttin' on my game face!

Gotta love it! I hope they turn their media anger on their next opponent!

09-06-2000, 05:50 PM

I love it!

Can you give me a source and the full story?

hmmm... the team rallying around gun?...

09-06-2000, 05:54 PM
Luz - I heard it on 810 on the way home. I am still looking for more info on the web as we speak.<BR>

09-06-2000, 05:59 PM
Luz - To be more precise, I heard Timmy's statements as they were recorded and played back, the other two items were courtesy of the station's viewpoints of reality.

Puttin' on my game face!

Awesome! I knew there was a reason I liked Gun. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif I disagree with his coaching style (1950's offense) but you can't question the guy's intensity. I wish he and Whitlock got into it. It's also nice to see Clemons stand up for Gun too. Hopefully we see a team united behind Gunther go into Adelphia and kick some *** . Well, maybe that's asking too much, but I still like the way the team is rallying around each other. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif

Just another incident from the most un-disciplined squad (I refuse to use the word "team") in football right now.

Whitlocks job is to write and state his opinion. Gunthers job is to coach a football team not get in the face of civilians (see Raiders game in Oakland last year.) Now this. Clemmons job is to play football. BTW, who is Duane Clemmons anyway, does he play for the Chiefs? Ohhh yeah, I forgot! http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/mad.gif

Russ, Luz, when are you two going to come out of denial?

09-06-2000, 06:47 PM
Kurt - I guess we should hope that the team supports a reporter over their coach? That doesn't make any sense, what would you like to see them say, or do you like WHB so much that any critisizm of it hurts you personally?

Just doesn't get some people, but I hate to use the word "people" (grin).

Personally I don't really care what it takes to get this squad playing as a team. Anything at this point has to be a positive. Not that I ever considered this team to be in serious trouble,But they have seemed to be playing without any kind of emotion. Going through the motion so to speak. Whitless is such a jerk! He's the first to jump on board when things are great and the first to bail when they aren't. But at least he had the guts to show up at the press conference in front of Gun and the Boys.

09-06-2000, 07:28 PM
They should be more concerned about their game preparation than a reporter who is trying to be controversial.

09-06-2000, 07:44 PM
I know nothing about this incident other than what I'm reading here, but there is an observation I want to make that is real and valid.

Every man and woman that has ever been charged with the responcibility of motivating their people understands that there is nothing that will unite you more than an outside threat.

Whitlock, Keitzman, et al have been absolute enemies of this team. Until now, their vitrol has generally been aimed at the administration (mainly Carl, but including Lamar). Every player knows these two, but that's not the same as sharing blood, sweat, and tears on a daily basis. Thus is the relationship that Gun has with this team.

And now, ONE OF THEIR OWN is under attack!

I love hearing about Gun standing up for himself and about Grunny and Clemmons defending him. These clowns in the media might just accidently have given this team the unifying mission it needs.

If each man on this team deep down believes he has something to prove, and finds his pride, then watch out NFL ~ this team can rock!

mark my words...

09-06-2000, 07:50 PM
It would be nice to see some of that heat coming out on the playing field. Its one thing to get in Jason Whitlock's face, now how about getting in Jevon Kearse's face. Gunter would be better off just admitting that this episode happened and move on. By not telling the truth, all he does is extends the redicule that is coming from the media and fans.

If Gunter wanted to quit after last sunday, Lord knows what he will want to do after the Chiefs get destroyed this week! Better put a suicide watch on him after the game.

09-06-2000, 08:29 PM
As Alan stated, I don't care if it is wrong or right. If it is a basis to come together as a team, I say put a poster of Fatlock on the locker and pound it on the way out to the field.

Kurt - I guess if I just wanted to be negative all day and work to find nothing good about the team, I could agree with you. However, I have never understood the concept of working to be unhappy.

09-06-2000, 08:43 PM
If the 1st game of the season in your own crib in front of thousands of hungry fans isn't enough to motivate you, especially considering the offseason we had, then I don't think a lard a$$ beat writer is going to do it...

09-06-2000, 08:45 PM
Russ-That's it! (Two inches from your face.) http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/mad.gif You've gone and done it now!!!!!!!!!! You sorry son of a beach, I've had it! I see plenty of positives on this team, here are just a few; Tony G, S. Morris, Donnie E, John T, Will S, TRich. You think I am angry you dam bet you. I am sick to death of people defending the inept management of this team. I am sick to death of some of my favorite players in the NFL playing their guts out for at least two @ssholes that need to spend 100% less time worrying about what the media is saying about them and a little more time worrying about how to gel the talent that they do have together.

H ell, I don't even know why I'm talking to you, Luz or Morph either for that matter. You are so in denial. I give the h ell up.

Just go ahead and turn your head to the obvious fact that this team was not and is not ready to play the game. (I guess that three offsided penalties and two plays with only 10 men on the field in the first quarter alone Sunday are Chiefs positives.)

Like I said, http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/mad.gif I give the h ell up, you are obviously in denial that there is a problem with this squad. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/mad.gif AND IT AINT FREAKING TWITLOCKS FAULT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :MAD:

I am glad they are finally taking back their TEAM. I hope they use this for motivation sunday.

09-06-2000, 08:56 PM
Sun-good post. As mad as I am about the antics of this squad......you made me laugh.
NO, I am not Whitlock in diguise, couldn't be farther from it.

just love the chiefs and hold out hope cause i cant function thinking everythings in the toilet

09-06-2000, 09:08 PM
Kurt - I never blamed Whitlock for anything. In fact, if you will read ALL of my words, you will see that I stated whether the team was right or WRONG in getting angry, I liked it. Because they now have a focal point. If they can move that focal point to a positive goal, then they have a hook.

I think you just want to believe that I back the management and coaches regardless of their decisions.... And you are wrong. When Cunningham was hired, I was one of the first to post I disagreed. But he is coach now, so that's that. I can harp on it with 30 posts a day complaining about no playoff wins, and poor draft picks, and yadda yadda yadda. I just don't understand what purpose it serves.

Griping is fine, and perfectly natural. In fact, I agree with you on many points regarding the team and their decisions. However, harping a subject over and over is a mental mistake that all of us are guily of, and one I try to avoid.

Russ-What do you mean poor draft picks? Why do you constantly look for the negative? What about John Tait, Donnie Edwards, Reggie Tongue, Derrick Thomas, Neil Smith, Albert Lewis, Sylvester Morris, Dave Szott, Tim (doesn't know when to shut his mouth) Grunhard and more.............these are some bamn fine picks if you ax me.

09-06-2000, 09:16 PM
Kurt - Again, As I stated on the other thread regarding this subject, I was not necessarily pointing out your comments, but rather if you look at others who do complain as I mentioned, you will see bitter angry people that I would never want to be anything like.

not trying to put words in his mouth but i like to play too.....lol

i think he's referring to:

trezelle jenkins
greg hill

im sure there are more but having a brain fart

Duck Dog
09-06-2000, 09:18 PM
But none of these picks are quality qb's and that is what we need...have needed...for a long while.

09-06-2000, 09:18 PM
Kurt - Here is my point....

You mention Timmy and slam him for speaking his mind, directly on the air to the people who attack him and his team on a daily basis.

Yet, I have yet to see one word from you on Lockett for speaking with a media member and releasing private meetings to the general public, and never having the nerve to come out and attach his name to the comments.

Seems to me that you should be stating that KLock doesn't know when to shut his mouth.

09-06-2000, 09:19 PM
Kurt, not that I disagree with you but it is too early to put any label on SlyMo...Neil Smith was considered a bust for a couple years before he took off...But on the negative side you can't forget T.Jenkins,H.Williams,G.Hill, R.Shehee and it is starting to look like we can throw M.Cloud into that mix...That is a lot of 1st,2nd and 3rd round picks that we got next to nothing out of....

09-06-2000, 09:20 PM
Sun - Of course, I admit when mistakes like that are made. I don't always believe they are as detrimental as some would make them out to be, but that is just me.
