In the interest of getting attention or having a message heard, while all methods here have proven worthy and effective, i.e. banners, flyers, written and social media, sports radio spots, T.V. spots and the like, I think there's another simple vehicle here that's not been attempted. I've only been to the raider game so far this year so maybe there has been an attempt that I'm unaware of. At that point in the season the movement was well on it's way and gaining momentum, but the network of fans following had not reached the fever pitch that it has to present. The blackout proved that the tributaries were reaching what is now the mighty river flowing.

With the thought that we as fans are in touch collectively and following the scripts that SOC is providing I feel that an effort to have our collective voices heard can be displayed in the simplest of fashions. The most effective method in having one's voice heard is through the power of the voice. How many times in years past in walking out of Arrowhead after a dominating win over a rival were you involved in the chant........GO!.........CHIEFS!.......GO!.......CHIEFS! with half the fans alternating between the GO and the other half CHIEFS. Powerful, effective, uniting, and best of all free. It seemed to bring an already proud moment to a collective unity of victory that bonded our fanbase even closer putting goosebumps upon goosebumps. Maybe I'm an old sap on all that emotional stuff, but it provided great memories to me and my boys and all that have attended with me. I know I'm longwinded, that's why I haven't posted here. I just don't know when to shut up.

But what if by Sunday, a chant of some sort could be agreed upon by all here and then spread that chant through SOC'S social media and somehow get it cranked up somewhere middle of the 4th quarter with what we know will mostly be fans wearing black and aware of the movement. Something simple as the FIRE PIOLI mantra or for that matter.......SAVE OUR CHIEFS. Simple, effective, loud, proud, but harmless, and again.....free.

Maybe it's too late in the game to organize such a thing, but it would be a good measuring stick as to how in touch the group has become. Hell, I liked someones early on idea about just laying on the horns in the parking lot as a sign of unity and protest. Just saying, the collective voice is a very powerful tool that we have the freedom to use. Why don't we use it? OK....I'm done now. Sorry.
