It's insensitive, but we are literally talking about one decision that will have millions upon millions of dollars in impact.
The Chiefs will play and the NFL will make certain the Chiefs know they have to put their best foot forward. It's a shitty situation but I'm sure everyone knows why that decision has to be made.
I understand the monetary issue but there is ZERO competitive balance issue the Chiefs are 1-9 and the Panthers are 3-8 and are out of the playoffs.
If the players
want to play the game then they should.
