Congregating in a newly formed Facebook group dubbed Terrorhead Returns, the fast-growing cadre of red-and-yellow-clad fans is hoping to counter a group of Seahawks backers who are attempting to get CenturyLink Field into the Guinness Book of Records as the loudest stadium on Earth.
Quoting from the Terrorhead Returns page: “We have submitted an application with Guiness (sic) World Book and will request the permission from the Kansas City Chiefs and the NFL to be given a fair chance to put the record where it is truly deserved. Join in Chiefs Fans! GO CHIEFS!!!”
Kansas City Chiefs fans started a Facebook group, “Terrorhead Returns”, with the goal of earning a shot at the record. The group said it’s dedicated to “re-affirm and establish our long known history of Arrowhead Stadium as being the ‘Loudest Stadium in the NFL.’”
Arrowhead Stadium has long been considered home to one of the most boisterous fan bases in the NFL, dating back to the days when Marty Schottenheimer stalked the sidelines in the 1990s.
The fan group said on its Facebook page that Guinness told them they’ve passed the first stage of the application process. Their application will move to the next level and final confirmation of acceptance, which could take another few weeks, the group posted.
In is Frank Zombo, who comes from the Green Bay Packers. Interestingly, John Dorsey’s former team, the Packers, did not tender him as a restricted free agent. Here’s what we wrote about Zombo upon his signing; He was picked up by Green Bay after the 2010 NFL Draft, made the 53-man roster (which is impressive enough) and even started eight games and four sacks on the season. In the following two years, Zombo had just one start due to injuries and competition. He didstart in the Super Bowl, which is pretty cool.
Mike Catapano, whose college coach told AP’s Matt Conner that he has a motor like Justin Smith, is new this year. He’s the Chiefs seventh round pick out of Princeton.
And then there’s Edgar Jones, who returns from last season’s season. Look for his role to come on special teams, as it did last season in KC. (That and scoring really awesome touchdowns.)
No. 25 is an outspoken socialite who’s one round trip away from passing Clark Kent in frequent-flyer miles.
In the offseason, he’s never not doing something—his daily planner looks like it should have Britannica stamped on the side of it.
He served as a celebrity waiter at Sullivan’s Steakhouse (NSFW: He handles carries better than criticism).
