RESOLVED AT TKC: KANSAS CITY CHIEFS AND THEIR FANBOYS ARE CREEPS WHO PROBABLY DON'T DESERVE TO WIN!!!
Today's life lesson for broke-ass Kansas City residents was clear and reminds us that rising income inequality now rules nearly every aspect of American life.
FACT: Millionaire athletes working for powerful billionaire companies don't confront the same consequences as the rest of the cowtown plebs. To be fair, given rising violence in the metro, Kansas City footballers wouldn't be the only locals walking after speculation of wrongdoing.
Brief aside, Johnson County DA Steve Howe is taking heat for his statements today and that's undeserved. He handled his job professionally and he has our respect for shutting out The Chiefs & The NFL in his investigation.
But the real debate is outside of the courtroom and in the hearts and minds of Kansas City denizens.
Here's an overview:
One of the team's marquee players is now tarnished by a child abuse scandal after a previous controversy involving a beat down on his partner.
A new defensive star will play for the team next season. His salary is just as heinous as his repeated controversies involving women.
QB Patrick Mahomes is billed as the team's hero but he's mostly famous for goofy trick passes and his work as a ketchup pitch man.
And we're all in agreement that Travis Kelce is one of the worst people to ever appear on a reality dating show. He's also overrated and likely washed up at this point in his career.
The team's troubles go beyond their horrible roster. Overpriced and often moldy fare dominates Arrowhead. This season some poor youngster was smacked in the head by a beer bottle thrown by one of the many rowdy fans. And let's never forget the poor dude who was beaten to death in the parking lot for getting into the wrong car and the manslaughter charge that earned a wrist slap.
CONSIDER ALL OF THIS TURMOIL CONFRONTING THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS AND THEN REALIZE THAT THE ANTICS OF THE TEAM ARE FUNDED BY BROKE-ASS JACKSON COUNTY TAXPAYERS!!!
Sadly, the substantial subsidy worth hundreds of millions provides local politicos very little authority or courage to take a stand on the problems confronting the team. MSM is dependent on the advertising revenue so any scrutiny will be quickly forgotten. And given that the Royals still have to wait another 27 years until their next meaningful season, Kansas City sports fanboys gleefully await the start of Chiefs football and the ensuing celebration of a cast of characters that locals would likely avoid in any other circumstance.
