*******

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(October 17, 2012)

Organizers behind the Save Our Chiefs movement have designated November 18, 2012 against the Cincinnati Bengals as the official Blackout Arrowhead game. Not a blackout in the traditional sense where the game isn't televised but instead one where the fans wear black to the game. Why a Blackout? To send a visual message that Chief fans are tired of broken leadership and subpar performance on the field. Black is a color commonly attributed to “mourning” which is the state of mind, play and spirit of the Chiefs fan base.

Organizers released this official statement on Wednesday, October 17, 2012:

"We, the donators and supporters of the banner and movement, have been accused of being fair weather fans. This is simply not true. We are passionate fans who live and die with this team on Sunday. If we were fair weather fans, we would have found something else to do a long time ago. Instead, we have gone hoarse by the second quarter and not been able to speak right the next day. We have painted our faces and worn costumes, even formed charitable organizations that have raised tens of thousands of dollars to benefit the local community. We have made life-long friends and are as dedicated a Chiefs fan as anyone else.

We haven't given up the team. We are tired of losing. We are tired of not being competitive. We are tired of seeing Arrowhead as a shell of what it used to be.

We who have been loyal for so long deserve better than what we have received. We have endured 19 painful years with no playoff wins. While it’s acknowledged that the organization has won the AFC West, as recently as 2010, they mean nothing when they are immediately followed by playoff losses. We have had a single appearance in the AFC championship game since 1970 (1993) and we lost. In 1984, the AFC Championship trophy was named "The Lamar Hunt Trophy". How sad is it that we have never once held the trophy that bears our founders name?

Thousands of us remember the desolation of the 80's and it is something we do not want to see repeated. Thousands of us remember going to games in the late 90's and early 00's and feeling the rumble of the crowd in our feet and chest. We would high five and hug total strangers after a touchdown or a clutch defensive stop. We remember being unable to talk to the person next to us on defensive 3rd downs... all because we knew that we could disrupt the opposing offense and inspire our defense.

Our goal with this movement is to create change so we don't end up forgetting those experiences. We ask everyone to attend the Chiefs/Bengals game on November 18 to wear black and cheer for the Chiefs. Send a message that Sea of Red will quickly change and disappear if change isn't made. Arrowhead will once again be empty like it was in the 80s.

Why does it bother him? I've read several people from the military posting on how they approve of the blackout.

I ask him and he just isn't sure...I don't know if it is Black=death or something like that. It's something I can't really tell him to get over. He spent the 30 years in it...I didn't so I really just leave it be. Again, he is a season ticket holder and wants Pioli gone too. He just isn't big on the blackout... A day of appreciation should not look like a day of mourning I guess....?

This is the first time I have even heard of a military member not liking it is all. I definitely respect his opinion on it though. I hope he understands that it has nothing to do with the military in this case and the military ALWAYS gets tons of love from Chiefs fans. hell, it will probably be the loudest we cheer for the entire game. Just like the Marine silent drill was the highlight of the raider game.

That's the first reasonable response I've seen to the whole thing. I can understand that last statement. That said, the Chiefs should show more appreciation than having the damn game staged as a funeral. And it is. I'm sorry, but it's like going to a ****ing funeral there. One of those awkward ones where you feel like more people should show up, but they don't. It's ****ed. 50 years in Kansas City. Together is powerful. While I truly am sorry your Father feels that way, I really hope the city comes together and shows Clark Hunt that Together truly is powerful.

I heard you, good call, you got the SOC shout out and validated your take by saying you we're going wearing black.

So, because I am wearing Black to the Game and it happens to fall on the day that we show our appreciation for the Military, I am going to be viewed as a hater for it.
So, if I wear purple, orange, blue, maybe a rainbow shirt..anything other than Black, it will be OK?
This is effing stupid
What if it's very cold, and I am wearing my Black/Brown Carharts and Black/Brown Coat..am I still going to be viewed as a Hater towards the Military. FYI...I SERVED IN THE MILITARY TOO..ARMY!!!
