View Full Version : Chiefs Chiefs Drop a Brick

I called the Chiefs a few weeks ago when I got my season ticket bill for 2010. Last year if you paid the tickets in full by the first payment date, you got a free autographed Chiefs Yearbook (mine was autographed by Neil Smith, my favorite Bronco Traitor). I asked what the deal was for this year, and they said "there was no deal." So I asked, "what's the incentive for paying in full early?" Guy at the Chiefs said "Guess there is none, really..."

So about a week later, I got a broadcast email from Denny Thum to all season ticket holders. Now if you pay your tickets in full by the first pay date, you get a free brick in the courtyard outside the new Chiefs HOF at Arrowhead, with 3 lines on it. So I think I'm going to do that.

Any suggestions of what the three lines of copy should be?

You don't even have to pay in full. As long as you make your 1st EZ-Pay payment by Feb 15th you get a brick.

I'm going to do a memorial brick for my dad (who could care less about the chiefs, but I still thought it would be cool).

The email said "pay in full by Feb 15th." I pulled a PDF of the email, which is attached:

This exercise is pointless. The Chiefs will censor all bricks to imply nothing but love for the team, staff, and ownership.

Well, I guess you're right. I thought it said "on your first payment" not "or your first payment."

So, that's a pretty easy for all fans to get in on. Thanks for pointing that out.

Quote:
As construction of The New Arrowhead continues, we look forward to kicking off the 2010 season when our season ticket holders will finally experience first-hand the grand opening of the best place to be on gameday. In addition, there will be plenty to be excited about both on the field and in the stands. As we say, The New Arrowhead: New Body, Same Soul…there is no doubt that the SOUL of the stadium comes from the passion, commitment and dedication of fans like YOU who bring this stadium alive. Whether you have been with us for 50 years or just a few seasons, we know that our season ticket holders are the lifeblood of this franchise.

We want to ensure the SOUL of our team is part of the permanent legacy at The New Arrowhead. Every account holder will have an opportunity to receive a complimentary 4"x 8" personalized brick in the Founder's Plaza. The Founder's Plaza will showcase a heroic statue of Lamar Hunt, anchoring an engaging outdoor area that honors his many contributions to the sports world. Located on the north side of the stadium outside of Gate A, this unique plaza area will become a great gathering place for our fans. Having your name and/or message displayed in the Founder's Plaza is a great way for you to become a permanent part of the BODY that is The New Arrowhead.

During Lamar Hunt's Hall of Fame acceptance speech, he humbly accepted his enshrinement "in the name of the pro football fans of America." No doubt, our founder would take great satisfaction knowing that this special area at The New Arrowhead will be surrounded by the personalized bricks belonging to "the Chiefs fans of America."

If you are interested in being part of the Founder's Plaza, all you need to do is pay your invoice in full or your first installment on EZ Pay by February 15th and then provide your personalized message according to the guidelines listed at the following link – www.kcchiefs.com/sthbrick. It is important that you enter your message no later than March 5th in order for us to meet construction deadlines. By the end of July, we will send you a Founder's Plaza Brick certificate along with a map indicating the location of your brick.

We look forward to seeing you at The New Arrowhead!

Sincerely,

Dennis J. Thum

President

I think the EZ installment thing is where they take money right out of your bank account on specific days. So, you lose control of when you make the payment, the Chiefs auto deduct it. Not a big deal really, you have to pay for them anyway one way or the other.

This exercise is pointless. The Chiefs will censor all bricks to imply nothing but love for the team, staff, and ownership.Of course they will. Why would a fan want to decorate their home field with insults, let alone ownership. And in the future, if this team is winning superbowls, how absurd would it be to have a bunch of bricks taking potshots at a championship team?

I mean, I understand the "outrage" at the moment, but being a fan of a team transcends that in this situation.
