The Kansas City Chiefs Need Us! And We Need Them!


Any Kansas City Chiefs who has never been to Arrowhead Stadium needs to go.

The last five years or so, it’s been easy to let other things get ahead of this one on the bucket list.

Bad coaching. Bad management. A bad quarterback.

Lot’s of bad.

Until early last year when things started to change.

A world class proven coach with plenty of coaching years left.

A quarterback with real talent and real heart.

And the shadowy forgotten fact that this last place team had one hell of a lot of Pro Bowl players on it.

And BAM out of the gate a win. Then another. And another.

And the half empty stands began to fill.

And the players saw us there. And fed off our energy. And kept winning.

And suddenly we began to be proud of our team again.

Loudest stadium in the NFL? What a joke that was.


Anybody who was there that Sunday knew in their hearts as we screamed with joy that it WAS the loudest in the NFL.

That day, it was the loudest in the world.

And the Chiefs win and the fans come. And the fans come and the Chiefs win.

And we move toward post season with hope and joy in our hearts.

But of course it’s a mutual benefit.

When we go to the greatest stadium in the NFL our worries are left at those gates for an afternoon for one.

I’ll bet you can name a billion other reasons.

And so if you have never been to a game at Arrowhead you have one more chance this season go.

Your team needs us. And we need them.

    I’ll be there for Indy. My dad took me to a game when I was young and I have been a Chiefs fan ever since. Since that time we have purchased season tickets and been season ticket holders for well over a decade. Even though it was not always filled with good times there is no place I would rather be on home game Sundays than Arrowhead Stadium. Go Chiefs!

  • Stacy D. Smith

    It’d be nice to win tickets to the Indianapolis game. That could be a really important game. I HATE cold-weather games, but if I won, I would go.

  • Bosco Cletus

    How right you are about leaving your worries at the gate. As soon as I pay the 27 bucks, I forget about everything except the Chiefs. Hell I could come back and my Jeep be stolen and I wouldn’t even care as long as we won. lol I went to the Raiders game this year, first time in 3 years because I had gotten burned out during the past regime, but man that was a day to remember. The way people were beating on the sides of the spiral afterwards may have been as loud as the actual game.

    • Justin R Groth

      I was there sounded like continuous thunder roaring out

  • tomflex

    I just got my voice back from the Denver game. What’s funny is I couldn’t even hear my vocal cords going into labor and giving birth to several brand new pallops. Believe me I would never do that to myself on purpose….We don’t yell and scream to set records or for any other contrived reason……..We just yell because we love the Chiefs.

  • Larry Devore

    Made my first trip to Arrowhead for the Raiders game. The one must see game on my list. Face it Jersey ain’t around the corner

  • Stephen Doroha

    I’m a die hard Chief fan who lives in New York I fly my colors every Sunday scratch that whenever the Chiefs are playing & well after the season ends I’ve never had the honor to goto Arrowhead but have always dreamed of being able to goto the motherland!! & yes I’m doing my part for the Chiefs both of my children my son a 4 yr old & daughter 2 yrs old where our jerseys every Sunday & the do the tomahawk dance with me on every score & big play LMAO!! So if someone can get me to Arrowhead before I die I would die a happy man!! GO CHIEFS!!!

  • John Bielefeld

    Lived in KC from 83 to 03 and went to as many games as I could afford. Even the loss of a game never left me dejected. I always left Arrowhead feeling part of something larger….community….spirit de corps…family. Whatever you want to call it, the nexus was that stadium. I have old jerseys that still smell of beer and hickory smoke. I live in Nashville now and it’s hard. It’s hard living away from your family. So I will echo the authors sentiment. If you are a fan out there and have never been to Arrowhead for a game. Make it happen. You may find that you have some pretty cool family!

  • John Bielefeld

    By the way, I was really proud of the turnout at the Chiefs – Titans game. It brought back that feeling. Maybe you saw me there? I was the drunk guy in the Chiefs jersey. =P
