Are wereally that dumb, or are we unable to break free because we don't know any better or should just stop being fans all together?
Guilty as charged good buddy...guilty as charged. But what do we do about it. I love my Chiefs. I can't give up my season tickets just yet...

But how do we effect change as a fan? Just not show up for the games but pay for the season tickets? Tell them we are giving up on them and to cancel our season tickets? Lead protests? Write letters? What is the answer? Your opinion?

Nobody can question First Down Elvis's passion for the team. He's having the same thoughts we all are...Our we gluttons for punishment...Are we becoming the Cubs of the NFL? Passoinate supporters of our team but nothing to show for it.

Fans need to be fans. Sure, the front office needs to receive a "messge" from the fans, but in the end - you need to support your team.

We're all very passionate about our respective teams, but we all have issues with how the owners run the team or how the current teams were built.

Just like all the BS that Bowlen does that drives me crazy, what am I to do? Stop cheering for the team I've loved for 2 decades?

I understand why you guys are at the breaking point, but you have to support your 'team'. It's not their fault. Hunt, Peterson, Vermeil and company need a message ... but, you have to support your team.

Sorry ya'll, I was being sarcastic...to a point.

People bitch, but don't do anything...but bitch some more.

While I'm not happy, I can't go down that road.

We took a gamble this year...a calculated risk. We believed, and so did CP and DV, that bringing in a new defensive scheme would improve the defense.

Sorry, but just about everyone sang Gunthers praises, and believed he could turn the defense around, including myself. There were a skeptical few that believed we did not have enough talent, and now i'm starting to believe that too.

Hindsight is 20/20. They made a poor decision IMO, but at the time, they believed it was the right one, as did most of you.

Oh..and I will continue to support this team no matter what. My advice to you fans who want to take arms and do something about this teams poor performance: write a letter. It will make you feel better, and heck, they might even read it. Not showing up to the games, or god for bid "protesting" won't help the situation at all.

For christs' sake we're 0-2 not 0-12. We've lost two games to good teams. I would suggest rather that choosing any of the above options try getting a life so that you have something to keep you from putting so much importance on the outcome of a football game. Being a fan is fun and frustrating for everyone. To make such a drama out of it is sad and pathetic. If it bugs you so much just find something else to spend your time on.

I gave up on the Royals and my life is now easier. If they win it's great. If they don't so what. It doesn't make me a different person and it certainly doesn't send me into a deep depression or make me feel that "I" have a responsibility as a fan to do something about it. The Chiefs will probably win a more than a few games this year and may still get a playoff spot. If they don't, then Vermeil, Peterson and company will be the ones to pay for it, not us.

If you really wanna protest though, stop buying tickets and going to the games. Some empty seat in Arrowhead will hurt their bottom line...as well as their egos....and maye they'll get the message that they need to work harder to win if they want our financial support. Otherwise stop whinning.

Gotcha Stevieray.... I understand your pain but it's amazing how little I care about what happened yesterday since I decided to stop letting losses get to me.
