Of course, we’re thrilled that Dustin Colquitt is going to be a Chief for a long, long time. But what about the rest of free agency? We kind of feel like Cousin Eddie’s kids from Christmas Vacation on Christmas Eve right about now–worried we won’t get squat.
Are the Chiefs asleep at the wheel? Paging Carl Peterson…Chuck Cook… Bill Kuharich… Herman Edwards..Ray Farmer…ANYONE!?
I was dead serious about my Arrowhead boycott by the way. And that’s not being disloyal, that’s being loyal. Loyal to the NFL’s best fans first, the players as well, while letting the cheapos in the front office know how I feel. I will still get all the games via Direct TV. I will still wear more Chiefs garb than any one man should own. I’ll still write for Arrowhead Addict. What I won’t do, however, is continue to pad Clark Hunt’s pockets for a commitment to mediocrity. If that commitment continues, I suggest that other Chiefs fans get aboard the boycott train as well.
The Chiefs must do something this weekend to let their fans know that they want to win. Hell, the Cowboys, Patriots and Redskins give their fans another effin’ Christmas every late February–what about us? We get stuck with second-rate signings. They get Tickle Me Elmo, we get Delmo, a copycat ripoff that doesn’t do jack shit when you tickle him. For you younger ones, they get new PS3s, we get stuck with refurbished PS2s.
Jeff Faine would be a great start, but I’m even scared we won’t get him. It’s already looking like we won’t get Drayton Florence (‘Skins) or Donte’ Stallworth (Bears). The lack of news is just killing me. Maybe it’s just that we’re targeting a hoard of under-the-radar guys. I don’t know what it is, but the front office better not be sitting on their asses right now. If they are, I’m going to be sitting on mine at home for all eight of the Chiefs 2008 home games. Argh…more to come…
