ECO-DISASTER AMID KANSAS CITY STAR FRONT PAGE TRIBUTE PRICE SPIKE & CHIEFS SUPER BOWL VICTORY FAST FASHION BANDWAGON MERCH RUN!!!



The newspaper added a couple of bucks to it's cover price today as part of a "commemorative" front page . . .



The dead-tree edition might or might not be worth it but isn't any less or more valuable than all of the overpriced merch that's currently flying off store shelves:

Chiefs fans wait hours for Super Bowl champion gear

To be fair, overall there seems to be a trickle down effect for the moment according to some sources . . .

Chiefs Super Bowl victory economic win for Kansas City

However, one of our environmentally conscious readers sends this note . . .

"The Super Bowl is an ecological disaster for Kansas City. We have fans buying textile products and paper that damage our planet and pollute the world. They're doing it without any idea of the harmful waste they're creating. Please share this link on the environmental impact that all of this Super Bowl hysteria is creating. I know people want to join the celebration but please just wear a red sweater you already own, don't buy this junk . . . It's all just killing the planet . . ."

The link and info in question:

The psychological, economic, and social costs of air pollution

The fashion industry emits more carbon than international flights and maritime shipping combined. Here are the biggest ways it impacts the planet.

Want to save the planet? Start with your closet.

It's a nice thought that people want to save the planet amid the Super Bowl party but the reality is that fans don't seem to care about anything other than hoping aboard this historic bandwagon despite the consequences of environmental damage.



You decide . . .

Be fair now, this "clothes pollution" also applies to so much of that buy local junk the hipsters are selling at 200% markups.

Super bowl merch isn't going to make a difference one way or another. The very next day Miami Gardens hosted the Formula 1 Grand Prix that's equivalent to about 4 Super Bowls worth of pollution.

I saw a lady at the grocery store paying $8.99 for paper reusable paper shopping bags because guess whose face and number was on it.

Did anyone else seem to notice that the so called superboy was too good to come =home with the team but had to do do a parade minus any of the other Chiefs players.

Williams should have got the MVP not two tone Mahomes.

Oh snap what a travesty, modern socity buying textile and paper products. Why don't these fuckers just go live in a cave.

It's tradition for the MVP to go to Disney World after the superbowl. Don't be mad at Mahomes be mad at Mickey Mouse dumbass.

I saw JJ Watt on SNL other night. Bet you never see a Chief's player on there. Maybe on America's Most Wanted not ever on SNL. Lucas and Mahomes maybe guest starring on the L Word but never SNL. SNL only has really cool people on it.

My neighbor offered me his paper. I declined. My hatred for the Star is almost as bad as the liberal hatred for President Trump. The Star is garbage!
