Strippers At Chiefs, Cowboys Game Draws Parental Complaints


The Kansas City Chiefs scored a dramatic victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday and while the victory was no doubt a thrilling experience for those an attendance, one family had to enjoy the action at home.

For fear of strippers.

According to an NBC report, a local strip club brought their truck complete with a billboard advertisement to the game. The strippers were wearing regular clothes and in the video seem to be just enjoying the tailgate like any other fan but some local patents were upset.

As FanSided.com’s Stu White points out, it is king of ironic that these parents were worried about a strippers in normal clothes being inappropriate when the cheerleaders inside the stadium would be wearing significantly less.

It’s interesting that “exposure” to strippers in street clothes would be problematic, but the guarantee of seeing barely-covered cheerleaders inside the stadium doesn’t seem to raise any eyebrows. (To be fair, no mention is made in the video regarding the Kansas City cheerleaders, so my comparison is an unfounded assumption. Still, it is food for thought.)

Had the strippers been acting inappropriately I could understand the concern but all that happened here was that a local business decided to enjoy the game while also snagging a little free advertising.It certainly doesn’t seem to be a reason to stay away from the stadium. After all, the Arrowhead parking lot is a big place. If these folks wanted to avoid running into this group, I don’t think they’d have had to try very hard.

    These are probably the same people that let their kids watch reality shows like the kardouchians, but get all butthurt when their children are exposed to things in society that are far less perverse, very hypocritical

  • PunjabiPete

    I love how “free” and “liberal” we are supposed to be but rather than being open and honest with our children about issues we attack others for “destroying their innocence”. Well let me tell you something. If your child is past the first grade, he/ she can explain more than one sexual position. If they are in middle school, they have kissed and/ or gone further than that. That’s not me being gross, that’s reality. Rather than trying to shield them from every bikini and every sideboob they see at Wal-Mart, I TALK with my boys in a constructive fashion and answer their questions about sexuality and whatever else. They know if they want to know something, even if it’s something I’m uncomfortable with, I will be honest, open, and try to explain in as neutral a way as I can.

    As a final note, if your kids can type and you have internet, even if you have a filter, they have seen scantily clad people on the internet. Not porn, you can block that, but definitely questionable stuff. Rather than make them feel bad for being curious or having questions, TALK with your little monster.The only problem I would have had with the stripper-mobile is how much they charge per lap dance. Highway robbery!

      LOL!! That depends on the girl!!!!!!!!!!!

    • berttheclock

      In a small community just south and west of Portland, OR, a very small group of “concerned” mothers are attempting to shut down a coffee shop which specializes in having bikini clad young ladies work as baristas. Loved a comment from some lady to the Oregonian where she was concerned about those ladies working around so much steam. Speaking of which, for quite a while, there was a coffee stand just next to I-5 in Centralia. The barista was a very pretty and very buxom young lady who wore a low cut dindyl to work. Early mornings, it was tough to get any coffee due to the line up of construction workers wanting their favorite “Lattes”. Must have been the coffee, eh?

    • Joe Myers

      ……. what this man said !!!!!!!

    • Brennan Ransdell

      Who says these parents haven’t fully explained what strippers are to their children? You’re jumping to conclusions. That said, yes, it is obviously something they are uncomfortable with, The fact that you you aren’t says a lot about your sense of morality, but that’s not even my point. You ridicule this family because they DO take a negative moral stance on stripping. That has to be your reason because the rest of your little rant has nothing to do with what the family said and is reaching WELL outside this story’s boundaries at best.

      • PunjabiPete

        Morality? I was offering a reasoned argument contradicting Arrowfan’s but don’t you give me some lecture on morality. I ridicule this family because rather than man/ woman up and talk to their kids, they try to shield them from the real world, making them think life is all sugar pops and unicorns; then these kids grow up and move out and are COMPLETELY unprepared to deal with a world where drug use, prostitution, murder, rape, and all other forms of debauchery are rampant, and because their parents were too cowardly to prepare them for those things, lots of those kids end up on drugs, or gambling, or engaging in “immoral” acts.

        This shouldn’t even be a story. That stripper truck did NOT have nude women dancing around, and they paid their (insane) fee to park in that crappy parking lot just like the rest of us. They are trying to pick up a little extra business, I have no problem with that. I would have WAY more issue with some church group chortling on about whatever it is they believe this week and trying to convert people, but as long as they paid to get in and don’t come within throwing distance it’s their right.

        If the parents fully explained what strippers are, then the children would be prepared for what they saw, and would ignore it. Heck, it’s not obvious here, they may HAVE ignored it, and a couple morons full of righteous indignation about the downfall of the “moral fabric” of our once innocent slave trading/ genocide funding/ hate mongering/ racist/ bloodthirsty society wanted to get 15 minutes of fame and this was the only way they could do it. I’m guessing you were one of them.

        • Brennan Ransdell

          I guess you can’t fix stupid. You’re making claims you have no knowledge of, idiot. Again, HOW DO YOU KNOW THEY HAVE OR HAVEN’T DISCUSSED ANYTHING WITH THEIR CHILDREN. Just because something is explained, doesn’t mean you want to be witness to it. “Here son. This is what abortion is. Now let’s go see a fetus get sucked out of a womb with a vacuum.” Go smoke some more of whatever it is you’re on, Mr. 15 minutes of fame. And by the way, you’ve made no reasoned argument for anything, just a rant that doesn’t hold water.

          • PunjabiPete

            You sure can’t fix stupid, I appreciate your comments though. And your argument is a LOT more reasoned. It made my knees knock seeing such reasoned, fair and neutral statements. I don’t smoke. And I never insinuated that telling my kids what a stripper was or what an abortion was meant I went out and made them watch them. I have explained the male and female anatomy and how they are different and how that is OK and nothing to be ashamed of, so that if they HAPPEN to see a naked woman they don’t freak out. Nice calling me an idiot though, internet tough guy.

          • Brennan Ransdell

            Want my address bub? I’m no keyboard commando. Pretty sure you can just look me up by name! And yes, you described the exact mentality of “exposing” your children to what you have “explained.” Hope you told them to take a stack of ones! You should be dad of the year! lmao

          • PunjabiPete

            I’m done with you, we are just going to have to agree to disagree. I can look you up, if you like, I’m not afraid of some good old fashioned confrontation – but it seems a little bass ackwards that you want to talk about my lack of immorality and then in the same thread express your wish to confront me physically… and yet you feel morally superior to me and know I am raising my children incorrectly… that’s fine. We’ll keep raising our kids our own ways and see who ends up making it in the real world and who is laying in the gutter covered in whiskey, man-fluid and broken dreams. It’s telling that rather than come up with a reasoned rebuttal of my “lame rants”, you resort to threats of violence, as all intelligent people do when they win a debate. You are a classy guy, and I bow to your obviously superior logic.

          • Brennan Ransdell

            You are a walking example of hypocrisy and you don’t even see it. I asked if you wanted my address because you said I act tough behind a keyboard. So who started down that path??? Hmmm… I never threatened anyone with violence either, so again, don’t know where you get your banter. In fact, the only one coming close to threatening violence is you saying you’re not afraid of confrontation (which is typical for a true keyboard commando…Point fingers and then make a claim I’m sure you’ll never back up.) You finding nothing wrong with your children being exposed to strippers, or any other tacet most would consider immoral for that matter, yes, is a reflection of your morality, or more succinctly, your lack thereof . You also make no logical connections of arguments. All you have done is rant and make accusations that have nothing to do with what I first said. You are attempting to make arguments about informing children when your actions are arguing that exposure to whatever YOU deem moral is what is right. Yeah, kids seeing capitalism in action in the form of a strip club soliciting at Arrowhead is SO educational. Get a brain, idiot.

            My children will end up ordering their food and drinks from your children more than likely, so you can keep the whiskey comments to yourself as well. And yes, it’s obvious that I am superior to you in regard to reasoning and logic. You can’t even see your own moot arguments and how they have absolutely nothing to do with what has been said. All you do is say these parents are sheltering when you have no idea what their children know or don’t. Anytime you disagree with someone on the morality of an issue, simply because they don’t believe in exposure to it, they are taking the moral, yet illogical, high road? Um, that doesn’t add up, son. So, enjoy your “daddy” time at the strip club, Mr. Classy, and keep contributing to the downfall of what once was a great nation.

          • PunjabiPete

            OK, I’m going to ignore most of your first paragraph; it’s obvious you’re a sad little man who has trouble finding ways to argue without being insulting, though if a meeting with me is REALLY what you want, I’m sure we can do that without plastering it all over the boards here.

            I like how being in the service industry is apparently an insult, yet I can guarantee you are one of those same people who parrot the “get a job, welfare queen” line, but let’s ignore that as well. I am NOT advocating taking my children, your children, or any children to a strip club. I am also saying that advertising for a strip club, as long as they do not break any laws (no nudity), is completely legal. If you can advertise Bud Lite and Guinness, you can advertise for your strip club.

            The very fact that you, or anyone, would take their kids to a game where beer and alcoholic beverages are sold and advertised means to some extent you know I’m right. You take your kids to a Chiefs game, they see people drinking beer and they see beer advertised, and yet because you have told them about beer and alcohol, they do not freak out when they see it but they know it is not something they should be imbibing. My argument is it’s the same thing with strip clubs. Rather than catch a case of the vapors and hold my hand over their eyes everytime someone drinks a beer, lights up a cigarette, yells a curse word, grabs their crotch, or does any of the other sundry disgusting things we all encounter on a daily basis, I try as best I can to prepare my kids for those realities so they have the tools they need to deal with them. It has nothing whatsoever to do with morality, to me it’s being a realist.

            I have never been to a strip club. I have never been to a bar. But because my parents were honest and open about most things I asked them about, I was adult enough to make the decision NOT to go to those places (though I fault NO ONE if they go, to each his own). I am simply trying to pass that along to my kids. And if my kids work in a restaurant while they are going through college, then I would be PROUD to have them serve your kids, and I hope they would be proud to do it as well. There’s no shame in working your butt off. None at all.

            So, in closing, I honestly detest violence and fighting, but if that is how you want to end this debate, we can get together and do that; even if we meet and you punch my lights out (possible), my point still stands, and just because I don’t raise my kids by your version of what is good and moral doesn’t nullify my parenting any more.

            Lastly, “downfall of what was once a great nation”? Do you mean the great nation that wouldn’t let blacks eat in the front area of a restaurant? Or do you mean the once great nation where women couldn’t vote and “knew their place”? How about the once great nation that refuses to accept that sometimes a man wants a man and a woman wants a woman? Or the once great nation that put Japanese people in internment camps? Or how about the once great nation that claims their mulleted sky wizard told them to kill off the only natural Americans here with smallpox infested blankets and steal their land? Or the once great nation that CLAIMS to be a country of immigrants unless you happen to be a brown one, then you’re a worthless illegal? Or where black men could be killed for making eye contact with a white woman? Which one were you referring to?

          • Brennan Ransdell

            Okay, liberal Larry! Again, you make NO ARGUMENT as to what I first stated. Again, nothing but banter and being a total hypocrite as you point fingers and call names yourself. By once great nation, in this context, I simply mean a country in which a church tailgating would be more accepted than a strip club. Your point stands? Again, you haven’t made a point other than that you are a hypocrite. You judge these parents for their judgment of morality compared to yours….not how they parent, not how they inform or don’t, not what they allow or don’t….yet your first condemnation of them was based on your supposed knowledge of this.

            Don’t point fingers at me for responding in the same ways I have been spoken to. You call me an internet tough guy, yet accuse me of invoking violence when I say I would be happy to meet you in person. You place judgment on parents for not agreeing with YOUR judgment of what does and does not have a moral place at a public event, yet your only argument is about them sheltering their children, when you have no idea how they have parented, only that they think strip clubs have no place soliciting at Arrowhead. You call me names, yet belittle me when I return the favor.

            YOU are the one bringing up facets that have nothing to do with the issue, throwing stones in your glass house, and taking a self-righteous stance essentially based on the notion that there is no such thing as righteous other than total acceptance of everyone and everything. Typical hypocritical, illogical, and question dodging liberal. Twenty bucks, this guy’s a Jayhawks fan too.

          • PunjabiPete

            I AM a liberal, I’ll give you that. I don’t see that as being an insult though. I am ALSO responding with what I think is a reasoned counterstatement to the parents who say the strip club was in the wrong being there. How does that make me a hypocrite? No, I do not claim to know how those parents raised their kids, and I’m not saying their way is wrong; rather, I am stating that there are more than one way to raise a child, and I think my way is one that would be effective too. Liberals don’t “dodge” questions. They answer them in ways that go right over the heads of most conservatives.

            I’m not placing judgment on any parents. I’m saying I raise my kids another way, and rather than force everyone to conform to their style of parenting, maybe they could see there are other viewpoints out there. Let’s say your viewpoint is a strictly Christian one (I’m not saying that, I’m saying for the sake of argument let’s assume that’s your view). I’m not saying it’s wrong, I’m saying that my viewpoint is different. That doesn’t make it less or more, it makes it different. In the context of this story, because you hold a strictly Christian belief does not give you the right to infringe on how others act if they do not act in accordance with what you view as moral. What if my idea of morality is no alcohol or smoking and cursing is punishable by death, and I hold those beliefs because my God tells me those are right? In this country we have what’s called “freedom of religion”, so I am allowed to hold those beliefs, but does that mean I get to dictate that alcohol no longer be served at Arrowhead because I’M a maladjusted religious zealot? Absolutely not, and to a much lesser extent, that same argument applies here.

            As for meeting, how about at a strip club? I got some great coupons at a game recently…

          • Brennan Ransdell

            Your “reasoned counter-statement” was directed at what they are “sheltering” their children from, but you’ve no idea what they have parented or not or why or why not, and the REASON for your argument is simply that you disagree with them on a moral level, not because of their parenting. You are constantly using such terms as “maladjusted religious zealot” in the same sentence as everyone is entitled because of our freedoms. Combine with that your constant calling the kettle black in regard to me. That’s how you are being a hypocrite! As far as a meeting goes, how about church? It’s free, no coupons necessary, and you might actually learn something instead of killing your brain cells off and being overtly exposed to every STD known (and unknown) to man.

          • PunjabiPete

            Booo to church, and as a young male there’s more chance getting an STD there than any strip club.

            Being a maladjusted religious zealot is still legal because of our freedoms, so that statement still holds water. It’s hilarious you call me a hypocrite yet want to meet in the center of hypocrisy (“Love everyone as we are all equal in the eyes of the Lord, unless you’re gay/bi/transgendered/Jewish/ an immigrant/ poor/ needing help, then F- you” LOL)

            The only reason I can see that you’re still so worked up about would be if you were one of the complaining parties. How do YOU know I am wrong? Unless you were the sole complainer, you don’t. I disagree with them, that much is true, but my disagreement is over said parent’s insistence that because a strip club advertising is immoral to THEM, it must be immoral to everyone, and thus that truck had no business being there. Calm down, take a deep breath, and look at this objectively. I may be wrong, that is up to God/ Allah/ Wayne Newton to say, not you (or me). But in that same vein, those other PARENTS may be wrong. Can you see where I’m coming from? Even if you don’t agree with me, can you at least see what I’m trying to say? I feel like I’m having an argument with a brick wall covered in grease: logic either slides right off or, if thrown hard enough, bounces off with no effect.

            What strip club have you gone to where you can get an STD? You know there are NO strip clubs that allow you to have sex with the dancers, right? Even having never gone to one, I know that much…

            Lastly, RE: church, no thank you, been there, saw the rank hypocrisy, decided my weekends were better served sleeping in and watching the Chiefs, never looked back… recovering Catholic here. I don’t want to get into a religious argument (though that’s where most of our morals, or lack thereof, stem from), but I just can’t follow someone who makes people a certain way, then hates them for it.

            I’m genuinely sorry for the counter productive name calling, your posts annoy me greatly and sometimes I respond before I think things through, but I still with great conviction believe I am correct in this debate. Believe what you like, raise your kids how you like, decide what is moral or immoral for yourself, I wholeheartedly support that. Just don’t push your beliefs/childrearing practices/ morality on me. Let me do the same.

          • Brennan Ransdell

            YOU HAVEN’T DEBATED THE ISSUE YOU MORON!!!! And where did I say I discriminate against ANYONE? I believe you are confusing an organized religion in the form of denominations with the religion itself, and in turn, classifying me as part of such. The ONLY thing there should be an argument about is whether or not it is proper for a strip club to solicit business at an Arrowhead tailgate…and very little of what you have said has anything to do with that.

            AGAIN, you attacked these parents (and I suppose anyone who agrees with them in that a strip club shouldn’t be allowed to solicit at the stadium) for sheltering their kids when you’ve no idea what they have or haven’t exposed them to in parenting and explanation.

            Don’t push YOUR immorality on me, asshole! Ask the majority involved…moms, dads, and everyone in the Cheifs’ organization their opinions on the appropriateness.

            Yes, you are a total hypocrite, a typical liberal…Try to live under the illusion that all you care about is free and critical thinking and open-mindedness…how to think, not what to think, but then anyone who holds to a more traditional view of morality is closed and simple-minded? How do you not see the hypocrisy in your own thinking? Oh, wait, that’s right, because the liberal agenda is illogical and hypocritical in that sense from the onset! Liberals, yourself included, are in fact the most closed-minded group that exists. You simply CAN’T accept that some of us still believe in an absolute truth and that such institutions as strip clubs are immoral (and I’ve got news for you, the majority agree with that).

            Did a priest rape you as a child or something? Is that why you are so against any notion of morality beyond what the individual dictates? And again, where do YOU get off imposing YOUR morality (or the strip club for that matter) on anyone else??????

            Legal does not equal moral, and I hope to spite you and every other “free-thinking” tailgater that every single church organizes witnessing every week from this point forward at every home game. Legal? Yes. Annoying? Yes. Appropriate? No, not any more than a strip club.

            Logic bounces off???? Your argument, the liberal agenda, is illogical from the onset as already explained. I’m the one talking to a brick wall, one put up by your exposure to an imperfect organized denomination and the “free-thinking” bestowed upon you by your parents. I feel sorry for your children and the “adults” they are going to be. Idiocracy…that’s all people like you perpetuate.

          • PunjabiPete

            I believe I’ve won this argument, thanks for playing. Take care now, bye-bye then.

          • Brennan Ransdell

            Spoken like a true liberal… “I make nothing but cyclical illogical statements that argue nothing, point fingers for anything remotely rude that I do myself, and tell myself I’m right. So what if it doesn’t follow logic and contradicts itself. I upset someone, so I have to be right.”

            I haven’t played, jackass. That would require a halfway intelligent being to argue with. Liberal elites possess logic, schooling, and intelligence???? Now I’ve heard it all. Most members of MENSA happen to be conservative by the way. Look it up. That said, I am not a conservative, nor am I a liberal, and I by no means claim to be elite at anything except calling both sides of the fence out on their bullshit.

            I have not given any more “knuckle-dragging” than I have received, again, your showing of total hypocrisy. Your argument (wait there was one???), your demeanor, and your lack of any intelligent rebuttal whatsoever have proven MY point. I’ll let everyone else decide “who wins.” Didn’t realize this was a contest. (Little man syndrome, much?)

            And by the way, accusing anyone of being a “specific type of person” based on any “personal attacks” that have been made is generally a sign that you simply lack the wit to come up with anything of merit.

            Go home, get a pencil, think really hard for a comeback, and then think again because I’m sure your first thought will be elementary at best. Good try though, little man.

          • PunjabiPete

            I refuse to have a battle of wits with an unarmed man.

            Although I do enjoy you claim you are neither liberal or conservative but the insult you keep bringing up is that I’m a liberal.

            MENSA is a joke (I’ve long been of the idea that intelligence tests are an unfair indicator of intelligence, but that’s a different post). The fact that MENSA and Heritage Foundation are both classified as “think tanks” just points out that intellectually this country is going down the tubes. The fact that anyone who sides with the ideal that “this nation was founded on Christian ideals, it’s implied in the Constitution” even though the founding fathers chose EXPLICITLY to write the exact opposite is even further proof. I’ll leave the meanderings of what actual intelligence is to future philosophers.

            Because my rebuttals do not coincide with yours makes me a “moron” and a “hypocrite”? OK, duly noted. Note one cyclical illogical statement I have made. You are a joke. You don’t bother me, I’m no longer annoyed by you, I just feel pity now. I stopped insulting you a few rebuttals ago, but your insistence in calling me names shows that’s the only way I can break through that thick skull of yours. Well, legally and without going to jail, anyway…

            I do enjoy you have looked at other posts I’ve made and feel the need to stalk me around the internet rebutting week old posts; just further proof that I have the moral, intellectual, logical, and philosophical upper hand here. I’ve made my point; there’s really no reason to keep responding to you other than I have this innate (and usually ill-conceived) urge to help those less fortunate. I have tried to back off of the insults and get you to see that there could be a different viewpoint, this has fallen on deaf ears. How far do you want to take this? Is it really worth it?

          • Brennan Ransdell

            You know what, how’s this for knuckle-dragging. FUCK YOU ASSHOLE! You have nothing on me intellectually, morally, or argumentatively. Again, you haven’t made a single valid point. I never claimed I wouldn’t make insults, just pointed out your hypocrisy in doing the same while ridiculing me for doing so (which you keep doing though you say you’ve not). Your “rebuttals” are dodging anything that has been stated. You sound like a gd broken record, arguing the same moot point that has nothing to do with what was originally stated. Anytime you want to “get through my thick skull” by some other means, feel free to try and not from behind your keyboard, because from behind your keyboard all you are is a pretentious little prick. Fact of the matter is, you are simply an asshole, and me calling you out on that has nothing to do with an inferior intellect. It’s called calling a spade a spade, which is something you apparently can’t do.

          • PunjabiPete

            *Yawn* Whatever, dude. I’m not driving 2 hours to Columbia to rabbit-punch some aging hipster in the babymaker, and you aren’t driving 2 hours to KC to throttle what you assume is a 90 lb. Indian technical support specialist. Give the threats a rest, we both know neither of us will ever act out on them.

            Tell me what point I have ignored, and I will gladly redirect you to where I feel I have made a reasoned argument. Stop the profanity, the cursing, the lame attempts to goad me into whatever it is you are trying to get me to do. I’m not going to go off, it’s not worth it. Unless I bump into you at a Chiefs game, you will never know whether or not I am really a “pretentious little prick”, and maybe that’s for the best. Nothing good would come of it, so really there’s no point in even talking about it anymore.

          • Brennan Ransdell

            Yet you keep talking about it. And anytime you would grace me with your presence in KC I would be more than happy to appease. A guy with your mouth deserves one in the kisser. Think I’m kidding? Try me. And I don’t need to “see” you to know you’re a pretentious little prick. It’s pretty obvious, especially since you’re a chicken shit to boot.

          • PunjabiPete

            You are the one who keeps talking about it, not me. Look at the history. Ooh, you called me chicken, I better ramp up the threats or else you’ll be right! LOL

            I think this is my last post here, this is getting both boring and pathetic. A physical fight seems to be what you want, and maybe one day you’ll get it. Nothing either of us could SAY on these message boards is going to convince the other of our badassitude. You have completely gone away from anything resembling a debate and that’s sad.

            If a fight is REALLY what you want, that’s fine but I’m not posting any details on this message board. It will be just you and me, no one else. Since there’s no real way to make that happen (I’m going to assume you’re the type of person that would bring friends or a gun) I’m not interested in schoolyard threats with you. Grow up, man.

          • Brennan Ransdell

            Again, FUCK YOU, FUCK OFF, and any time pussy. Again with the hypocrisy…. “I’m done talking and you’re making schoolyard threats.” Look in the mirror if you can handle it! What a fucking putz.I mean really, are you sure you’re not a Raiders fan? I’ve never heard so much whining in my life!

            I am sure some of them are computer savvy enough to find your ip. address and TP your house, or follow you to work and picket out front, causing you embarrassment and possibly a job loss.
            But let’s not re-invent the Civil War just because you have morality issues with someone else.

    Oh goodness, what next? Not allowing Chaucer, Rabelais and Balzac to be read in front of their children?
    But, then, I can see their concern. I went to a combined Junior-Senior HS in KCK. Now, talk about becoming very “confused” at an early age. Being 12 and seeing 18 year old young ladies with strange things attached to their sweaters does present very confusing issues. For years, I really did appreciate older women. With another throwback to “Music Man” (Balzac from above from the pick a little, talk a little cluck a little crowd), that “Older but wiser gal for me” meant something, but, I did end up marrying a slightly younger lady, so, something righted my ship, perhaps.

    I’m unable to attend any games anymore with my family because I don’t want to expose my children to the large amount of drinking and disorderly conduct that goes on in the sections that I can afford. Not to mention the cheer leaders themselves. Sure I like to see them and I understand why someone wants to live it up at the game. However the last thing I want is one of my daughters growing up and becoming a Stripper or even an NFL cheerleader (the only difference is a very small amount of clothing) honestly. I want her to be a Dr or a Lawyer or even the president. Also I don’t want them to live life thinking that the only way to enjoy events is to do so while drinking. When we watch games at home on TV I listen to the radio to know when the commercials are over (when my children are in the room) because I don’t want to expose them to the beer and sex that is on TV during commercial breaks. When the camera is panning over cheerleaders the TV is off then as well.

    Now I say all of this because if a parent has a problem with what is present during the tailgating (or any other event for that matter), then the parent needs not attend anymore, it is that simple. I cannot control other people and don’t want to, if strippers want to strip or tailgate what business is it of mine. Now I do care about the persona of my favorite thing in the world The Chiefs and I would prefer them to market and sponsor a family friendly environment, but the beer companies for the time being are what sponsor the NFL for the most part so I do the only I can do, not attend. I for one am tired of people complaining about what ever anyone else may want to do that offends them in some effort to control another person.

      I hope you’re joking.

    • steve james

      I understand your point.The drinking is a concern and it is very very widespread at games. I partake myself but not to excess. I think you are missing out on your Chiefs and a great real world teaching opportunity. It gives you a time and place to teach on those subjects that you can be a part of. Like it or not they will be exposed to parties, better you can inform them so they may make better choices when mom and dad are not around.

      As to your comment on the Cheerleaders I think you should step back and listen to what you are saying. You obviously see them as nothing but sex symbols and totally ignore them for the beautiful successful women they are. Every single one of our Chiefs Cheerleaders dream of making the team and work their tails off, sometimes for years, trying to make the team. Everyone of them are great examples for my daughter and I hope she grows up with the drive & smarts to work as hard as they do.(She is already the prettiest girl in the room but I am biased) Most are students and this is a part time job. Most all have college degrees or are going to school. Being a Chiefs cheerleader is just about as far from a stripper as you can get.

        Sure there are slight differences between a stripper and cheerleader, but not much like I said a small bit of clothing, and of course they are sex symbols, sex sells and that is the only reason they are there. I’m not saying they are hookers or anything but they do dance in front of people with the purpose to sexually arouse them do they not? They just are not taking it all off. I’m not trying to be rude or spiteful, like I said to each his own, but not my daughters. You could easily prove me wrong by simply providing a bio of one who is short, overweight, a little homely, and has an A cup bra. Sure they are successful and beautiful and I appreciate them for more than their shapes, however every argument you just made can be applied to a stripper as well.

        There is no shortage in life for learning and teaching examples of bad behavior or what not to do for my children and I’m not totally sheltering them and believe me I know the folly in sheltering a child from the world. One day I will hopefully return to Arrowhead when they are ready and my wife is confidant that no one is getting run us off the road after the game.

        • steve james

          Did you follow the link? Download the app and check out the bios. They all without exception are over achievers in life and highly successful. Of course they all have rockin bodies they are cheerleaders after all but they are far from strippers. Go into a strip club and talk to a few of them. Far Far from over achieving brainiacs. In a college town I suppose you would get you share of college girls dancing but really not the same at all.

      • PunjabiPete

        This is what I have been (admittedly maybe in an inflammatory way) been trying to say. This is a semi-safe environment (unless you kick a police officer in the balls apparently, yowza) place to get your kids some real world experience. There are a lot of disgusting people out there, and kids need to be aware of that and know how to deal with it with class.

        • Brennan Ransdell

          And your kids have such a classy example to go by!

          • PunjabiPete

            Shut up, dude, it’s getting old.

          • Brennan Ransdell

            HAHAHAHA!!!! Again, with the “stop doing what I’m doing.” WOW! Can you at least see THAT hypocrisy? Even you aren’t that blinded are you?

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Frankly, I don’t think NFL games are family friendly affairs and haven’t been for some time. It is essentially a live action sports bar. I believe some stadiums are working in family sections, which I think is smart.

      • ArrowFan

        All I’m asking for is a dry section somewhere in the cheap seats. I’m not going to be getting my own private suite anytime soon.

        • Kisersosay

          So displace a few thousand fans that like to have a beer at the game so you can have what you want? Seems to me that is un-American …..Maybe you just need to stay home so you are not exposed …..

          • ArrowFan

            I already am and if it where only one beer or two or even just one in everey two hundred or so that over does it I wouldn’t have a problem.

      • oldchiefsfan

        I have been taking my son to games since before he was even in Kindergarten. I remember carrying him around the parking lot on my shoulders. He has been to many games as he was growing up. Day games and night games. We walk around the parking lot and we mingle and talk and have a great time. I agree with you and I would like to say that none of that caused him any damage. He is a responsible, polite adult in spite of all he was “subjected to” as he grew up and he was raised to be a Chiefs fan. Him seeing other people party and drink beer caused no permanent damage to him. What is really awesome is now we go to games together and he’s an adult so we can both drink and my wife is the Designated Driver. I think Family Friendly is subjective. From my experience it was always Family Friendly. When he was really little he got all kinds of really nice attention in his jerseys and such.

      • John

        There’s always going to be people on either side of the fence with issues like this but if nothing bad was going on whats wrong with them cheering their team. In Buffalo there’s a family section that’s always sold out. Its a good idea because as you said live action sports bars can get crazy.

        • mnelson52

          The problem wasn’t in the stadium. The problem wasn’t the girls tailgating. The problem was the looks of the bus that brought them. If not for the bus no one would even know strippers were there.

    • PunjabiPete

      While I wholeheartedly respect and accept what you are saying, there seem to be 2 schools of thought: One where you find things like that inappropriate and want to shield your child for as long as possible so that hopefully they grow up and do the right things (nothing wrong with that) and then my style of parenting, in which you KNOW the world is a cold, cruel place, and do not shield your children from it but help them understand it, so when they are not under your supervision they have already dealt with things like cheerleaders and Miley Cyrus and can ignore them and keep on doing the right things.

      It’s a great topic of discussion, and I am tipping my hand as to how I feel, but I always wonder how nudity and sexuality is a lot less taboo in other parts of the world, and whether the sexual crime statistics being lower in those countries has a direct correlation to that. While I am NOT advocating child porn or anything like that, I think if we were a lot more open and honest with our kids, even when faced with things like that, they will make the right decisions.

  • Norman Gunn

    I don’t know guys, I saw the truck advertisement and that was a lot of ass exposed. Strippers have the right to attend games, to even advertise but it has to be in an appropriate way. That being said a 9 year old shouldn’t be exposed to a billboard of someone wearing a thong bent over… thats not cool.

    • mnelson52

      I agree but if that bus gave the girls a ride to Walmart, would they quit going there too. Maybe Mr. Hunt will kindly let them know that he would prefer not to have that type of advertisement in his parking lot.

    • Dick Nixon

      I gave you a negative mark and here is my reason why:
      You can see this advertisement on billboards all around town. You see their commercials on TV during “family hours” and shows about serial killers who relate to Edgar Allen Poe, or 16 and Pregnant, or Snukki-Vision. You hear their advertisements on morning talk-show radio on your way to work.
      ALL of these occur around your kids. Instead of making a big deal about it, try talking to your kids about it. They are going to see it in the real world anyway.
      Oh, by the way, do YOU complain at the local pool when some young hottie walks by wearing less and much wetter…..and……”colder”…..than the model on the billboard? I think not.
      Maybe you should police yourself before you try to police me or anyone else, especially at a public event.

      • Norman Gunn

        Did you really read my post? I actually said I am just fine with them advertising. I am actually cool with most public advertising of sex. If I don’t like it I will turn the channel or take my children else where. That being said I will not let my children be expose to pornigraphic image.

    Shut up quit bitching about everything . Tired of it its so annoying no harm was done at all !!!!!!

    If that is worse thing one experiences at Arrowhead, you are either a drunk or naïve.
    A pretty woman goes with profootball, like mustard on a hot dog.

  • oldchiefsfan

    So I guess I was a terrible dad for taking my son to Hooters before he was 18. This is ridiculous. They are strippers. So What? They were just partying and having fun like everybody else does in the parking lot. Some people have to complain about something or they just aren’t happy! I don’t care what they do for a living. It is none of my business. If they want to go to the stadium and party in the parking lot then more power to them!!!

  • steve james

    I think this is a plublicty play. Normal people that have that moral bearing wouldn’t condone football much less all the drinking that goes on. No way the strippers billboard is the straw that broke the camels back. If you did feel that way you wouldn’t go seeking TV face time for it. IMHO.

  • berttheclock

    I wonder what tail gating parties are like at Ladies Lingerie League games?

    • tm1946

      Wonder if we should check it out – am available on 15 minute notice, travel anywhere, and have 20-20 eye sight.

  • Jacob Crouse

    Where was I :(

  • Brennan Ransdell

    One point I think some are forgetting is that the family didn’t necessarily say the game. They are talking about tailgating, which HAS traditionally been a little more family oriented. Not saying I agree with either side. No sanctions in place? It’s 1st amendment rights, and the family got to express theirs by not going.

    • PunjabiPete

      tailgating is “family oriented”?! LOL!!! I’m not sure where you tailgate but I’ve learned new curse words and seen more boob and drunkenness before the game than I have on those pay per view channels! While the majority of people out there are cooking and enjoying friends, there are negative influences everywhere, man… I think the argument people like me are trying to make is rather than put the onus on the authorities to censor them or ask for some arbitrarily inane policies to keep the riff raff out (who ever heard of keeping riff raff OUT of a NFL game?), we can get a lot better result just learning to ignore that kind of behavior. If the stripper truck comes by and no one pays any attention to them, they will go away. If you get all worked up in a mouth frothing frenzy every time, they get free press and make more money, making it a good bet to do that each time.

      • Brennan Ransdell

        Negative influences, yeah, maybe, not if you are in the “family oriented” areas, and yes, I am, so I know they are there EVERY WEEK. That’s a far stretch from a strip club soliciting business.

  • Bosco Cletus

    They had on more clothes than our Chiefs Cheerleaders and they weren’t giving out lap dances…….next.

  • Jim Harper

    Lots of sports bars have buses that take customers to and from the game and they have the same advertising on their vehicles. No harm no foul!

  • kcsparky

    Oh for cryin’ out loud!!!! They were “tailgating” not “tailbaiting”! A little common sense please!

  • Dick Nixon

    People, People, People – You Really Need To Check Yourselves!
    At a Chiefs game, we are able to have our pictures taken with scantly clad women before the game (they even come to stores, grocery stores and my kids school in their skimpy outfits), are encouraged to eat like gluttons before, during and after the game, wash it all down with copious amounts of alcohol, watch and laugh at idiot drunks antics on the Jumbo Tron, maybe see a police beatdown/tazing on top of a professional football game where the impact of a trainwreck happens every 45-seconds.
    All this is A-Okay in Angela Lukenbill’s family………..I want to be in her family! Maybe when her fiance dumps her for being an idiot in front of everyone in KC and embarrassing him at work, at home, with friends or out and about town; well, maybe then I have a shot! But only on Sunday’s, okay Angela?? *wink-wink*
