Kansas City sports talk radio is about as viable as the National Enquirer. That’s why I never believed the radio report that a worker’s strike could cause the Chiefs to take their act on the road all season long. In fact, the only reason I’m even hitting on this is so those of you who actually believe the numskulls on the radio can take a collective exhale. From PFT:
In the midst of reports that a work stoppage could be coming at the Truman Sports Complex, a Chiefs official tells us that the situation will not disrupt the team’s home schedule.
Arrowhead Stadium currently is being renovated. The labor contract between the builder and its union expires next week. Absent a new contract, the employees could refuse to work.
“We’re aware of a potential strike,” the official said, “but we’re confident that we’ll play ten homes games at Arrowhead and hopefully more.”
The Chiefs will never let this happen and neither would the NFL. Trust me. Besides, the worst-case scenario would probably result in the Chiefs playing in nearby Lawrence, KS or something. There is no way in hell an NFL team would ever agree to play 16 games on the road. It’s utterly ridiculous to even suggest the possibility.
