Disappointment in Chiefs Blamed In Death of Local Man
By: The Football Girl | Posted: November 18, 2012
As mentioned here (and pretty much every other NFL entity) on a loop, the Chiefs are a sad team. Possibly the saddest of all-time. That sentiment hit a new level today.
First came this obituary in today’s Kansas City Star of Loren G. “Sam” Lickteig. Lickteig’s obit claimed his causes of death as “MS and heartbreaking disappointment caused by the Kansas City Chiefs football team.” Football is a powerful game, one that may be entering new heights if its causing emotional death to its fans.
And the grassroots movement known as Save Our Chiefs encouraged fans to wear black instead of red to today’s home game against the Bengals. This blackout revolution was specifically targeted to call for the firing of Chiefs G.M. Scott Pioli. The motivation should be obvious. As if the blackou attempts of Pioli weren’t enough, Save Our Chiefs, started by two die-hard Chiefs fans, flew an aerial banner that read “Return Hope – Fire Pioli – Restore our Chief.”
Just to pour more salt into their already wounded (and deceased) fan base the Chiefs put up another stinker. They only managed 6 points in a 31-6 loss to the Bengals, pulled Matt Cassel for Brady Quinn, and left appx. 79,000 fans at Arrowhead with another wasted Sunday afternoon.
Speaking of Cassel, we found this meme on the Save Our Chiefs Facebook page.
If after he is fired, Scott Pioli needs a graphic web designer, he knows where to go.
