Questions About Kansas City Renegades
Okay, because TKC isn't on any PR Wagon . . . I think it's important to address a few questions about The Kansas City Renegades posed by Kansas City Insiders and more than a few regular readers.
For better or worse this team is raising a surprising amount of talk . . .
Here's what I know and open for your comment . . .
1. Are they really going to start playing in 2013?
Right now, as far as we know and having checked with a few Kansas City insiders.
There is no official contract between the City and The Renegades to hold games at Kemper in the Spring of 2013. There's an intent but not anything on the books just yet. Update . . . Take a look at their contract which shows their effort to secure a lease at Kemper.
2. How can this team make money if The Brigade wasn't able to make indoor football work?
Talking to the team's ownership, they hope there is a significant savings by putting the games in Kemper vs. the pricey Downtown Sprint Center. Also, indoor football doesn't carry the huge player salaries of other pro-leagues.
3. Is that Kansas City Political Consultant And Former State Rep. Candidate Chris Moreno Working For The Group?
Yes, yes it is . . . However, there are at least one other local PR consultant also working with the team.
4. What can you tell us about the league and experience they have in establishing a working pro-sports franchise?
The Champions Professional Indoor Football League is brand new . . . They haven't played their first game and just launched in August. Check the league website: CPIFL.org
TKC Real Talk: There is concern that this is all "smoke and mirrors" but then again every small sports franchise is based on a lot of salesmanship and attempts to "sell the sizzle" of a fledgling endeavor. In the end, we'll have to wait until the Spring to see if the league comes to fruition and the team can make their Kemper plan succeed. We're hoping they accomplish their goals because Kemper is one of Kansas City's most undervalued assets.
5. Are you working with the KC Renegades?
Nope. TKC isn't affiliated with the team in any way, I've just attended their pressers and taken A LOT of photos of cheerleaders. In fact, cheerleader investigation is a top priority for TKC. Natch.
