THE FOOLISH BLACKOUT FAILS TO INSPIRE THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS!!! FAILED TEAM EMBARRASSED 28-6 BY BENGALS!!!
It's probably too much to expect ignorant Kansas City Chiefs football fans to understand the principle of negative reinforcement but clearly today's "blackout" at Arrowhead didn't help the team break their losing streak that has tragically become part of local culture.
Think about it: Fan participation and t-shirt sales even in the abyss of an 1-9 season actually demonstrates the strength of the Chiefs brand or at least indicates that football fans are far too unimaginative to find a new hobby.
What was more embarrassing and really a bad sign was the stadium basically empty and the parking lot clearing out by the 3rd Quarter on a beautiful day. Once again, in Kansas City, people vote with their feet.
As far as the game is concerned, it's the same old story: Turnovers, mediocre players, horrible coaching and a basic lack of (money invested in) talent have doomed this team. Even worse, there's really not much incentive to change this cycle of FAIL.
Media and our political elite pushing tax breaks have conspired to keep the public ignorant about the real ponzi scheme nature of this Kansas City taxpayer pro-sports swindle.
The upcoming game against Denver looks to be brutal.
And so, as always, Lucy Collett is far more captivating than ANYTHING that happens at Arrowhead. This season was lost a long time ago. What's likely the most damaging aspect of watching the Kansas City Chiefs is that it might reinforce a feeling of helplessness among residents who might mistakenly believe that they only exist as powerless consumers - Effective branding has clearly fooled a great many people into identifying their civic pride with a meaningless game. Now, only corporate rhetoric, sports fanboy grifters and gluttons for punishment will participate in this farce disguised as local sport.
