*******

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.

About the only other thing to top this is

Arrowhead stadium-The Mutest stadium in the NFL.

Is it possible to have 65000 people not say anything at one time in the game?

Like a stadium moment of silence--in the middle of the game.

If you could have 65,000 do what you want you are better off having them not attend the game.

There will undoubtedly be empty seats.

Any way you could turn the empty seats black? e.g. if everyone brought a trash back and covered these seats up? Could be a way to double or triple the movement if one person can make three seats turn black.

I don't know. Just trying to get creative.

They already went over this idea. Makes movement look desperate. You don't want people talking about padding the numbers with trash bags.

LOL, that was the original idea. Unpossible though.

We are going to try and get all you of wonderful people at the tailgate to sing the official Anthem of Save Our Chiefs.


The mp3 has been sent to the appropriate party.

Here are the lyrics.

Please print and distribute so that we all might join in song. And put that shit on video.

Easy to print Google Doc for the Lyrics.

http://bit.ly/SUYYzE


Quote:
Hand picked as the answer to,

A winning season overdue,

Were told he's gonna save the day,

The patriot way



Four years later here we are,

With number seven as our star,

Like a three yard route on third and long,

Yeah they got it wrong,



Yeah, we all know what needs to be done,

Send Pioli back to where he's from,

Yeah its time we roll up our sleeves,

And SAVE OUR CHIEFS



A City raised to believe,

That red and gold is what we bleed,

Yeah, we've stood behind them win or lose,

But we've paid our dues,




Together is powerful

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!



Was the motto a few weeks ago,

But four quarters of the running game,

Cant move the chains,



Yeah we all know what needs to be done,

Send Pioli back to where he's from,

Yeah its time we roll up our sleeves,

And SAVE OUR CHIEFS



HOOOOO-OHHHHHHHH-HOOOOO
HOOOOOO OHHHHHHHH OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!



Yeah we all know what needs to be done!

Send Pioli BACK to where he's from!


Yeah we all know what we need....

So it's time we roll up our sleeves...

And SAVE OUR CHIEFS



SAVE OUR CHIEFS!

Just wanted to say best of luck and thank you to everyone participating in the blackout tomorrow. My daughter asked me if we could wear black tomorrow in support even though we are not going to the game. We are, and hopefully the blackout will generate some buzz on the TV broadcast.
