Blackout Arrowhead: Nov 18 vs Bengals - Reserve Your Gear Today

Frustrated with the level of play and general direction of the Chiefs? Want to join the SaveOurChiefs movement and "Blackout Arrowhead?" Afraid to wear black and think you can't support the Chiefs?

You can order SaveOurChiefs black hoodie, long sleeve tee or short sleeve tee printed in CHIEFS team colors to support the team and players on Sunday, November 18 against the Bengals. Hoodies - $25, Long Sleeve - $20, Short Sleeve - $15. Call Sports Nutz @ (816) 923-7529 to reserve yours today! Reservations for product are being taken now. Gear is available now at the 40 Hwy location ONLY. Blackout gear cannot be purchased from any other Sportsnutz location.

10% is donated back to us and we are donating 100% of remaining funds to charity at the end of the season.

*******

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.

I don't rely on a 'appreciation' day at a football stadium to have pride or know my service was appreciated.

that's what a wife/husband, friends and family are for on Vertan's Day calling you to 'thank you' and to let you know they're proud of you.

Is it true that the official gear is sold outside of "Sports Nuts"? I was talking with my brother and he has seen it being sold in other stores.

We only licensed it Sports Nutz at that location only. If another store is selling it unauthorized, I'd love to (1) see physical proof (2) have a copy of the receipt (3) know the name of the store.

So put your brother up to the table and tell me where its being sold so I can get after them.

Not trying to but in, but who cares about what other stores are selling the shirts?

Id just ask them to donate some of the proceeds to SOC or to include links to SOC on their websites and even have something with a link on every piece of clothing they sell.


Its all about getting Arrowhead to be blacked out, isn't it?

apparently I double deleted my double posts.

In a nut shell, the reasons why I want to know are exactly what you posted. We made a promise to the Kilmer Family to help their location. If someone is bootlegging the shirt, they should do the right thing, kick some back to us so we can roll it forward to the KC Boys and Girls Club.

Just double checked with him, Sports Nutz is where he saw the shirts on sale but he did notice that everywhere else was pushing their black Chiefs gear.

I do wish we'd gone with someone a bit more reliable for the out of towners. I pre ordered this ****ing hoodie, and I still can't get anyone to pick the ****ing phone up and let me order one. I have my reasons for wanting this thing Goddammit!
