Obviously, the Chiefs have ignored our previous campaigns. As a result, this is our last-ditch effort and hopefully a campaign the Chiefs’ brass can’t ignore.
Here’s the deal: if the Chiefs refuse to add at least one starter-caliber offensive lineman through free agency, we are boycotting Arrowhead Stadium in ’08.
It’s time for the Chiefs to show that they are just as interested in winning as they are in packing the seats with red. The Raiders’ catchphrase is “just win, baby,” and while they might be going about it the wrong way, at least Raiders fans know that Al Davis and Co. are sure as hell trying. Chiefs fans cannot say the same.
It’s one thing to ignore clamoring for players like DeAngelo Hall and D.J. Hackett. But ignoring the offensive line problem is similar to a raging alcoholic denying he has a substance abuse issue. I’m talking a straight-Jack-for-breakfast alcoholic, that’s how severe of an O-line problem we have.
If the Chiefs don’t go out and sign Floyd Womack, or
Matt Lehr, or Max Starks, or Shane Olivea–a big, warm body with starting NFL offensive line experience–we are not going to the ‘Head next year. The Best Bros. have lowered our boycott demands as low as we can, and we suggest you join us in this cause. If the Chiefs legitimately believe that they can win with this offensive line they are delusional. If the Chiefs honestly believe that they can find three O-line starters in the draft when we also have holes at corner, defensive tackle, quarterback and wide receiver, then they are delusional. Maybe they aren’t delusional–maybe the Chiefs just don’t give a shit. That’s what really concerns me. Hell, with the renovations, Chiefs fans are currently spending more money on the team than ownership. Why should we pony up more?
The gauntlet has been thrown down. We’ll see how Clark Hunt and King Carl respond. If they even read this thing (we hear someone within the organization does monitor the top Chiefs sites, by the way). Stay tuned…
