Whitlock: Hey ChiefsPlanet, Quit whining about Sharpe

http://www.kansascity.com/mld/kansas...s/12698593.htm

Quit whining about Sharpe, Chiefs fans

JASON WHITLOCK
Kansas City Star

The insecurity of Chiefs fans is embarrassing.

They attempt to hide their insecurity in designer Chiefs apparel, large tailgates and the consumption of alcohol.

But all it takes is one national broadcaster to open his/her mouth in praise of the opposition or in skepticism of the greatness of a franchise that hasn’t won a playoff game since 1993, and Chiefs fans drop their macho façade in favor of whining.

It’s embarrassing.

Chiefs fans didn’t like Sterling Sharpe’s commentary during Kansas City’s Sunday-night victory over the Raiders. Sharpe’s crime? He talked too much about Randy Moss and pointed out that the Raiders blew the game with their own incompetence.

I received phone calls and e-mails from Kansas City fans upset with ESPN’s choice of Sharpe to call Sunday’s contest.

“I assume you watched the game on TV Sunday night, not knowing if you were at the game or not,” wrote Frank Spalitto. “If you did watch it, I am surprised that you did not comment on the commentary by Sterling Sharpe. By his account, you would think the game was coming from Oakland. Plus, all you heard was Moss, Moss and more Moss. I have written the same thing to ESPN. Hopefully the powers that be will not let that happen again to any game on national TV.”

I did not watch the game on TV. I watched the game live in Oakland. I did sit on the phone for an hour and tried to listen to a couple of friends describe to me Sharpe’s crimes. I went on the popular Web site for Chiefs fans, www.chiefsplanet.com, and read all the Sharpe complaints.

I debated watching the telecast again, but no one was able to convince me that Sharpe did one thing that John Madden (or just about every other TV broadcaster) wouldn’t have done. Sharpe talked about Randy Moss, one of the five biggest stars in the NFL.

Have you ever heard Madden talk about Brett Favre? If the Packers’ defense creates a turnover, Madden will find a way to credit Favre for the interception or fumble recovery.

Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Donovan McNabb get the same treatment. Steve McNair used to be part of the QB club, too. TV broadcasters used to spend the better part of two hours explaining how McNair managed to play despite toenails that were cut too close. TV broadcasters are the reason Kurt Warner robbed Marshall Faulk of two MVP trophies.

TV broadcasters love quarterbacks. Well, Sterling Sharpe isn’t your typical TV broadcaster. He’s different. He takes a different approach. He wants to tell you something other broadcasters won’t. I loved Sterling when he was a regular on ESPN’s pregame show. It’s borderline criminal that someone as bright and articulate as Sharpe was replaced by Michael Irvin.

It makes perfect sense that Sterling focused his attention on Randy Moss. Whether you like Moss or not, he was the most important player on the field Sunday night. Being a former wide receiver, Sharpe’s focus on Moss’ impact shouldn’t come as a surprise. Sharpe understands Moss’ impact better than most broadcasters.

The Raiders’ misuse of Moss and the ridiculous pass-interference call on Moss were obvious storylines.

Randy Moss isn’t as likeable as Manning, Brady, McNabb, Favre and all the guys in the QB club. That’s what I suspect fueled some of the criticism of Sharpe’s commentary. But I’ve also listened to Chiefs fans whine about Randy Cross and any other broadcaster who doesn’t pretend like the Chiefs have won three Super Bowls and appeared in two others (Raiders), so I know that a significant portion of the whining is borne out of KC’s insecurity issues.

“We don’t get enough respect!”

I have some bad news to break to Chiefs fans: The game was broadcast across the country, and the Raiders are a far sexier story than the Chiefs to average football fans.

The reason you might hear broadcasters “favoring” Kansas City’s opposition is because the Chiefs have been frauds for so long. Rather than complain about broadcasters, let’s worry about the Chiefs taking care of business on the field. If they do that, I’m sure Sharpe and Cross and everyone else will have plenty of favorable things to say about the Chiefs.

How someone can be that anti-chiefs one week and sucking them off the next?

I don't know if it was from one of his articles or from an article on kcchiefs.com but I read about chiefsplanet from one of those two sites.
