The Morning Fix: Clark Hunt Speaks Edition


The Morning Fix is back! After one day, I decided to stop depriving you, the reader, of your Kansas City Chiefs news and thus I have ended the Lockout Fix.

Just wanted to give you a heads up to check out the first article below from the Kansas City Star. Adam Teicher got a hold of Clark Hunt, who has remained fairly silent throughout this process. There are a lot of Hunt quotes in Teicher’s article and you’ll want to check it out.

Here is your Morning Fix!

“This is not a worst-case scenario for the Kansas City Chiefs from a football standpoint,” Hunt said. “Any team in a rebuilding mode, perhaps one that switched head coaches this past offseason, could be very challenged by this environment. I think it’s possible we’ll lose a significant amount of the offseason program — if not the entire offseason program — and that will make it a big struggle for those teams. With the progress we made last year, I think the Chiefs are actually in a very good position to deal with the environment we’re in.

“The fans have responded in a very positive fashion to the progress we made last year. We appreciate the support we received from our fans in 2010, and we’re excited about what the future holds and we’re looking forward to getting back on the field.”

For many of you, the most immediate question is tickets. Many Kansas City Chiefs fans are paying for tickets to a game that, as of right now, doesn’t exist.

Fans, for the most part, have zero power. Sure, you can stop the payments on your season tickets in protest of this bone-headed decision by the owners and players to take football away from us but you and I both know that when this deal gets worked out — and it will eventually — the vast majority of us will right back in Arrowhead Stadium for kick-off.

“I understand the game really well,” Dalton said at the combine last month. “I think it’s the way the offense was for me and TCU put a lot on me. I knew a lot which allowed them to put a lot on me. Just to go out and show them how much I know about the game of football not only about defenses but protections and everything it takes to play QB. And hopefully they’ll see that I’m a winner, I didn’t lose very many ball games, I can’t stand to lose. All my hard work is to win ball games.”
