Here at Arrowhead Addict, we’ve always been committed to bringing you the most entertaining Kansas City Chiefs news and views on the net. The site’s founders, Adam and Zach Best, wanted Chiefs fans to have a place to go on the web to talk about their favorite team with other fans. They ditched the unbiassed voice present in most traditional media and unapologetically adopted a fan-friendly point of view.
That approach not only helped make AA one of the best places on the web to get your Chiefs news but it also spawned a network of over 260 sports and entertainment blogs that follow the same philosophy.
Over the course of the last NFL season, we feel like we’ve gotten away from our site’s roots a little bit and we are bound and determined to get AA back on track by bringing you more content and quicker news updates than ever before.
As such, I am proud to announce we have named two new editors here at Arrowhead Addict.
This first guy, I think you know:
I’ve been a Chiefs fan for 21 years now (remember that last playoff win?) as I came to the team with Joe Montana. I attended my first Chiefs game at Arrowhead last year when the Chiefs beat the Raiders and Arrowhead broke the world record. I joined AA as a staff writer 11 months ago when I bugged Patrick until he finally relented and let me write an article. I’ve worked my up through the ranks and have been running the site for the last month in Andrew’s absence. I’m really looking forward to working with Ben and continuing the tradition of AA being the best damn Chiefs site on the web.
Jason has been a great member of the AA community for a long time. He cares deeply about this site and I know he is excited to get things rolling at full steam once again.
I also want to introduce you to Ben Nielsen. Ben is a wildly entertaining writer who we’ve imported from our KC Local Site, KC Kingdom. Thanks to the crew at KCK for letting us steal Ben away.
A little about Ben, in his own words.
There was a time in my youth when I would roll up socks into a ball, tie said sockballs around my shoulders with another sock so as to create “shoulder pads,” put my Marcus Allen jersey on over said sock-based shoulder pads, and then do goal line dives onto my bed. Needless to say, I have issues.
I was in attendance for the “Len Elliot” and “No Punt” playoff games. Needless to say, I have issues.
For the last 10 months I’ve been co-editing KC Kingdom with Joel Wagler and am excited to take on the new challenge of editing Arrowhead Addict. I’ve heard great tales of the staff’s passion for the Chiefs, and hope, with Jason’s help, to create an environment where your passion can be unleashed.
Thank you in advance for dealing with my issues, I’m sure you understand them.
Finally, I will be staying on as managing editor so those of you that thought you were getting rid of me…sorry to disappoint you.
The AA staff will continue to kick ass and take names under our new leadership.
As always, AA would be nothing without you, the reader. You guys are the best and your comments and passion for the Chiefs is what makes running AA so much fun.
Strap in, Addicts! It’s going to be a hell of an offseason. Go Chiefs!
