Reiter: Chiefs, fans hate each other...

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/k...esponds-100712

Some strong comments...

Quote:
There was more, a lot more, and it boiled down to this: Winston was embarrassed by Chiefs fans. He was sickened by them. He wanted no part of them just as virulently as they seem to want no part of him and his teammates.
Quote:
What a jarring change. What a sign of just how wide the gulf has grown under the stewardship of co-owner, CEO and chairman Clark Hunt and his hand-picked general manager, Scott Pioli, between a once-beloved team and its once-celebrated fans

How to pass out the blame? Is it, in part, because Clark Hunt seems as distant from this team as his dad seemed connected to it? Because where Lamar walked Arrowhead with a folksy connectedness and everyman-look, Clark travels with a personal assistant who seems to be trying too hard to play a character from the movie Wall Street? Because Pioliís ego ó the one that seems to have kept his $55-million quarterback in the driverís seat even as he drove it toward this divide ó is as bad for reaching fans as it has been at winning football games? Because two decades is too long for anyone to wait for a playoff win? Because we take sports much, much too seriously? Because sports, as much as anything, becomes one of our primary means of escapes in tough times and an unhealthy fixation when historically-difficult economic times descend?
Quote:
Is that what we see in Winstonís rant, the fansí bloodlust for one of their own and the unlikability and underperformance of the key people who have pushed us to this point? Have we seen an irrevocable change to the special bond between the Kansas City Chiefs and Kansas City?

Where Reiter is wrong is this.

Chief fans love the Chiefs enough to know that this team should be more.

If our brother were a crackhead, we'd eventually call for an intervention and tell him he's being an asshole and throwing away his life. That's where I'm at with what this team has given this Fan base for a long, long time.

We deserve better.


Or....as the Chiefs would say to the fans.

It's all part of the plan.


Franchise shits on fanbase; fanbase turns on franchise.


Franchise relocates to LA due to fan disconnect.

I think Winston's problem is that he doesn't realize that he went from a winning program to a losing program without a playoff win since 93. He probably thinks its out of character for the Chiefs to be bad and the fans shouldn't be upset.

The Browns didn't hire Pioli in 09 because "he wanted the power only God would demand."

Clark made a huge mistake. The dude's ego is bigger than the world.

All the City wants is a team that wins. Both the Chiefs and Royals each use convenient excuses for how that can't happen. F*** both organizations and their players if they can't understand our frustration.

Too bad Winston can't do anything directly to win the fans "back" - he can't score 52 touchdowns, throw them, nor catch them. He can't sack the opposing QBs 52 time either, nor lead the team in tackles. He's a blocker on the offensive side of the line, so all he can do is not give up sacks and open holes for the visible stars to run through. So he needs to and try at least doing the latter for a change... An uphill battle for him I suspect!

There has not been any kind of irrevocable change. The fan base here's not different. We just haven't won a playoff game in twenty years and we are tired of the acceptance of mediocrity (or less).

There seems to be zero accountability on this team, from Cassel on up to ownership. Protesting is the only thing fans can do other than not show up, and most of us still love the team too much to ignore them.

With silence from the fanbase ensues, that is when Clark will start to worry.



We will have completely given up when that happens. He might start to make less money.
