Chiefs fans should thank their lucky stars that the late Lamar Hunt was in charge of the team for almost four decades and was concerned about the way his team looked on the field.
Thus, the Chiefs have seldom had any changes to their uniforms over 52 seasons. Other than a stripe added here and there, or removed here and there, the uniform worn by the Dallas Texans in 1960 are not that different than the duds they’ll wear on the field in the 2011 season.
Best ego manager: Kansas City’s Todd Haley is an in-your-face coach. He is scared of no one. His demeanor has led Haley to clash with players, and player-coach sideline disagreements are not rare. But his style works. Players respond to Haley and he gets their respect. When he became the head coach in Kansas City in 2009, Haley wasn’t looking for any friends, and he broke down several players, including former first-round picks Dwayne Bowe and Derrick Johnson.
Prior to renovations at the Chiefs Training Facility, “GOTTA GO TO WORK!” was painted across the main wall inside the Chiefs weight room. Players like Eddie Kennison, Tony Gonzalez and Trent Green wore workout gear with the motto written across their chests and the slogan echoed throughout Arrowhead’s tunnels on gameday.
“GOTTA GO TO WORK” was a way of life for the Chiefs from 2001-05 and those words have now transformed into a summer reminder for student-athletes in the Kansas City Missouri School District (KSMSD).
