Level of Flustration?

Okay, I didn't get to watch the game, but it seems clear that the level of frustration is relatively high (fire him, unacceptable, etc.). Frustration's great, but has it reached a level which will cause you to act?

Season ticket holders? Will you stop attending games?

Non-season ticket holders? Will you eat the cost of the tickets in order to not attend?

And no TV for you above people.

Has it reached that point?

Just curious.

Thanks.

I think people are already starting to stay away. I don't care how many people the Chiefs SAY were there yesterday, that stadium was as empty as I have seen it in a long time.

The day Herm Edwards was hired is the same day I decided not to renew my season tickets. I'm not a huge Vermeil guy, but with him, I always felt there was hope. Probably because he's won a Superbowl and we weren't too far removed from the 13-3 season.

Thus far, it was the best economic decision I could have made. Not only is this team not very good, they're not much fun to watch; plus, the energy level at the games has dwindled.

Doesn't mean I won't watch from home though.

So true. I heard some comments from Tony after the game. He said that he may not like every play that is called, but he performs them to the best of his ability. He's open about his thoughts towrds the coaching, as well as how the players are performing. How could you not want to support someone like that!

That was my next question: does anyone have a breakdown of the revenue for the Chiefs? How much (%) is from ticket sales? How much from merchandising? How much from TV stuff? Other?

Does anyone know those figures?

Is that an accurate assessment?
I would say, based on the information, yes.

Things are going in opposite directions, the price is going up and the quality of football is going down.

I have recorded three games this year for later viewing, no way could I do that prior to Herm.
I listened to the game on Sirius yesterday, while driving back to Chicagoland.
I drove right through KC about 11:30, without even the slightest consideration for attending the game.
Herm destroyed the offense in his first season, the home field advantage in his second.
I can't wait to see what he does next year.

As for me I am a Chiefs fan through and through. I can't simply say I am done watching this team. I don't live where I can attend games on a regular basis, I do watch them on TV in a sports bar or at home depending on the coverage.

I will watch next weeks game and probably be miserable the entire week. Especially since I have to deal with all the dumb ass Charger fans at work.

I guess thats the price you pay when your a Chiefs Fan.

Or to be at the games rooting them on. I think that an empty stadium would affect the players morale, enthusiasm, and motivation as well as the coaching staff/GM.

I didn't laugh but I had a small chuckle. I know some here will bash me for it but the way I look at it is that losing is the only way we can get rid of Herm and Carl.

I gave up my season ticks two years ago, not due to lack of interest, but due to lack of cash. However next year I hope to buy season ticks once again and hold on to them for a while. Always a Chiefs fan. Through the bad and eventually into the good.

If I remember correctly from a Clayton article last year is was.....

Ticket sales are 18% - 20% of the total revenue for the average NFL team.

Official Sponsors, exclusive deals (Direct TV etc) and the TV contracts work out to about 65% of their revenue.

Merchandising 10%

Vending and parking on game day 5%

IMO there were MANY factors as to why they went 4 - 12. They lost 1st n 2nd string QBs within a handful of plays and Curtis Martin was done, just to name a couple. IMO take that away from any team and they will do poorly.
