KANSAS CITY CHIEFS BOOZING IN PUBLIC DURING SUPER BOWL PARADE VIOLATED LAW & EARNED REBUKE FROM PARENTS!!!



During the long-ago era of prohibition Kansas City earned international notoriety for its corrupt defiance of prudish American law that was eventually repealed. During the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade, superstar athletes also defied more reasonable restrictions on drinking in public.

Let's not forget that before the parade Kansas City's top cop warned the public about drinking outside of designated areas like bars, restaurants and residences.

KCPD Chief: "As always, public alcohol consumption also is prohibited."

However . . .

THOUSANDS OF CAMERAS DOCUMENTED THE CHIEFS BOOZING IT UP ON THE STREETS DURING THE PARADE AND OPENLY DEFYING KANSAS CITY LAWS EVERYBODY ELSE MUST OBEY!!!

Sports media confirmation . . .

Patrick Mahomes Pouring a Beer Into Travis Kelce’s Mouth is the Highlight of Chiefs Parade

And thankfully, at least one local station documents beer chugging that breaks the law:

KMBC: Eric Fisher relives viral Stone Cold beer celebration during Super Bowl parade



Chiefs fans are trying to spin criticism and claim the booze is fake . . . Witnesses at the scene, social media clips and the smells from the crowd confirm THOSE BEERS WERE THE REAL THING.

More to the point the rambling from the Chiefs during their speeches was nothing more than nearly incoherent impromptu chatter and yelling that usually emanates from the the cheap seats among functional alcoholics who utilize local games as nothing more than an excuse to drink.

Here's word sent our way from one fan and a growing sentiment starting to trend . . .

"I understand this victory was historic and these guys are entitled to a good time but what kind of message does it send to have them chugging beers for three hours on our downtown streets? 

Slurring through thanks to Veterans isn't really a proper tribute. It was impossible to listen to them because most players were drunk on stage. There were tens of thousands of young people watching and what they witnessed didn't have any more dignity than a late night college kegger. 

Again, I know the Chiefs are young athletes who can do whatever they please during their own time but this was a parade and rally funded by taxpayer dollars, and attended by elected officials. It didn't have to be a beer fest but that's how it turned out. More than anything, this was NOT a family friendly event."

Police escorted the Chiefs boozing so it's unlikely any fines or admonishment will result.

We understand concerns from parents but that's just one of many complaints starting to emerge . . .

As voters discuss the uncomfortable topic of corruption amid a debate over local control of police, this historic episode clearly demonstrates millionaire celebrity athletes acting above the law in full view of hundreds of thousands on Kansas City streets.

You decide . . .

I heard that line about the beer being fake. It's b.s. Check the barstool sports clips. He throws his cans into the crowd. It's bud garbage but it's real beer or as real as any bud can be.

Let's make a deal, they win the Super Bowl AGAIN next year and we should have a family event with no beer. That's a deal I'm sure all of Kansas City would be willing to accept.

One of the fox anchors talked about the smell of beer too. Kelce was drenched with booze by the time he made it up to the stage.

That's not how a true professional acts in public. But do we even have any professionals left in today's world.

If any elected official were to act like this in public after winning an election by celebrity as such while openly breaking laws clearly caught on camera would you all giggle and laugh while saying, "Oh they just having some fun?" No you would be screaming for heads to roll.

Of course this is not family friendly. They acted like idiots even the women with them were acting like skanks which is not surprising. There should have been some action taken against them but of course there wasn't. They make me sick after all look who they work for and what that stands for in our country. Scum, and so are the people who support them!

Who cares, a real parent shouldn’t have had their children out there in that weather to begin with. Maybe we should have a discussion or the commie red star could write about child endangerment laws. How about littering? Indecent exposure? Sex in public? Tearing up public park land? C’mon people, get real.

If you want to get stupid about it let’s pull all the laws that were broken out in the open.

The chiefs aren't role models that's for sure, they're really just pretend heroes. Real heroes are veterans, firemen, police, teachers, bus drivers. Too bad our society has chosen to reward these guys rather than those who make our city run and work every day.

Youthful indiscretions at best, low rent thug criminal behavior at worst. Either way, most die hard fans and like thinkers would rather turn a blind eye to this less than desirable PUBLIC world wide televised toga party.

Rightfully calling out the players public conduct is met with the hard core fan response of insults and STFU! REALLY!

Damn, I'm a fan and really love these guys. Not a prude in anyway, done worse, but real men shield their youth from this type of behavior whether their own or others. Real heroes don't publicly display same no matter their Rock Star status. Everyone just own it, man up and move on. Hopefully lesson learned.

That's why it's going down the shitter fast. The new world sucks and if you don't agree with that you're the issue then. Daeve is right real professionals don't act like what we saw yesterday. I'm as much a fan as the next person but it does not mean I have to support that sort of thuggery.

"Lock them up! Lock them up!...?"

Or, get a life. And, get over it. Young men drinking beer is not a headline event. The intent of the ordinance is NOT to prevent the "scandal" of children noticing that grown men drink beer. The intent of the ordinance is to prevent sidewalks and parks from being used as impromptu taverns.

This would not be an issue if the players just drank tall boy Colt 45's from brown paper bags. That's done every day in lots of KC neighborhoods, and nobody gets arrested for it.

Plain and simple, they stumbled, fumbled and drop the ball this time. We will all get over it and continue to celebrate their accomplishments but not their behavior.

BTW 3:52 PM It was wrong! Forget the bad optics. Did they violate the law or not by consuming alcohol (a lot) in public? Yes or No?

Yeah but the Tony Botello Parade of Super Bowl Victory Bitterness is in it's FOURTH DAY, folks!

The crowd estimates were fake, the t-shirt was photoshopped, the rally speeches were disappointing, the Native Americans were still insulted, people left trash, it was cold, a few people got arrested, people drank, somebody booed Frank White, "Super Bowl Inspired Mayor Bloomberg To Open Kansas City Campaign For Prez Office (ha, right), and Union Station sucks.

And yet people had a day they will remember forever.

Weird.

So they were drinking, big fucking whip de doo.

The streets were closed off and effectively rendered a private event for the team with the public able to look on, so there's no illegality going on here. None of them were driving, they had escorts so I don't see the big deal.

Kelce drunk? Ever been around him sober? The alcohol just slowed his roll some for the event. Yes, all of them were drinking but none of them fall down idiot drunk. They acted far better than the fans who showed up at P&L Sunday and had tied one before noon.

Watching the team get plastered along the parade route reminds me why I don't go to Chiefs games any more...last couple of times I went, I was surrounded by loud-mouthed, drunken slobs, spilling beer all over the place, yelling abusive, foul language toward each other (Chiefs fans yelling and picking fights with other Chiefs fans), etc. It amazes me the # of people who, having done absolutely NOTHING, somehow justify themselves WINNERS, riding the coattails of this winning team...as if even being a season ticket holder for 50 years and owning a crapload of Chiefs shirts and trinkets, somehow makes you a winner...or being a politician at the same time the team wins the SuperBowl somehow is attributable to you...nope, you're still LOSERS. NEWSFLASH: Y'all are sheeple wasting your time and alot of money, as only an OBSERVER, watching a silly game...get a life! BTW, I don't remember the World Series winning KC Royals team being drunken goons during their celebratory parade...just sayin'! (Not to mention the KC resident sheeple continue to elect and put thieving, overtaxing, wasteful spending, DumboCraps into office - the terribly run city, worst schools, pothole ridden roads, escalating murder rates,...Wake Up, Sheeple!)

I have absolutely no doubt that most of these comments that say it's no big deal are coming from the Chiefs marketing team.

How do I know this?

They're all extremely well written and grammatically correct. Much better than we usually get 'round these parts.

6:55 Smart kid, maybe, we all think that of grandchildren even if they're dumb as a rock. Depends on who's evaluating.

Smart grandpardnts, no. Error is in rationalizing your poor decision making. (But not all your fault I didn't think it would be that bad either.) Or your threshold is very high for what you will tolerate in an effort to be hip.

He will be fine as long as this is not approved of or repeated over and over. Children need proper guidance. You either accept that responsibility or not. Remember permissive exceptions to the rules becomes rules.

I swear some of the buzzkills bashing the Chiefs have probably never seen their wives fully naked in their 35 years of marriage and have only had sex with them in the missionary position.

It was a poorly planned parade and celebration at Union Station. Nobody was there to listen, or see a bunch of dumbass politicians.

Next time make it like the Rose Bowl parade. Would have been cool to have the outstanding local high school marching bands interspersed between individual convertibles for each Chiefs player and their significant others. Plus have the Chiefs players in their jerseys.

Should of have Tech 9 or at least a DJ playing jamming music for the crowd to dance to in order to stay warm. Needed music up and down Grand. Only entertainment was the police chase and guy falling out of the tree. GO CHIEFS !!! Thanks for the great season!

When Patrick Mahomes has young children, he and his wife are not going to want some drunk chugging a beer in front of his kids and slamming the can on the street or witnessing Tyrek Hill holding his crotch. Kelce acted like a narcissitic, look at me two year old.

We have all partied and had fun in our younger days, but there is a time and place for that; and the time and place is not in front of young children that look up to these football players. Clark Hunt and Andy Reid dropped the ball in preparing their millionaire employees for this taxpayer funded parade. The Chiefs image took a big hit.

The Honey Badger, Frank Clark, Chris Jones and the guys on defense showed respect for the fans, shaking hands, showing their appreciation to the fan's support etc. Can't say that for the big-ego players on offense.

Like it or not, this parade was nationally televised and the behavior of the team reflects on our city. I have no problem with the players doing the parade, connecting with fans, making their speeches and then doing whatever they want to do. They didn't need to make alcohol the focus of the parade.

Mahomes is always portrayed as a nice, sensible, godly person, and what we saw yesterday was not the image that we had of him. I frankly didn't like what I saw yesterday from Mahomes, Kelce or Hill. I thought they were nice, respectful men and what I say yesterday were immature thugs. It changed the way I think about them and about the Chiefs.

I also don't like the way they swing the Lombardi around, drink beer from it, etc. It's disrespectful. It's like they aren't old enough or mature enough to understand the enormity of winning the Super Bowl. Maybe they didn't deserve to win the Super Bowl yet. Maybe if it took longer, they'd appreciate it more and have more respect for the trophy and their fans.

I went to the Royals parade after they won the World Series and they kept it classy. I certainly didn't expect this from the Chiefs players, especially Mahomes.

I have to wonder if Mahomes' parents are disappointed in his behavior, since it sounds like they raised him NOT to be like this.

I was at parade. I have no problem if players want to celebrate by drinking. They deserve to let loose after their season of constraints, curfews and especially their Super Bowl Victory and...i have to remember they are mostly kids..i have kids their age. Having said that I do wish they would have been more subtle with their drinking given the worldwide attention and the youth onlookers. Like it or not they are role models for many young people and they do have a big influence. Now...having said that...they all praise Coach Reid for his encouraging them to be them. They were being themselves and even though I felt it was a bit over the top (alcohol and language wise) at least they were not hypocritical. So..I appreciate both sides. I'm 62, I do enjoy a few beers socially, consider myself to be conservative but open minded and enjoyed the Royals parade more . Partially because of the weather but mostly b c they represented KC well. I'll still love our Chiefs. I just would like to see them rep our city a little better next time around which is hopefully next year. We are all entitled to our opinions. This is mine. Go Chiefs!

Anonymous said...

Just my take, you can understand their behavior but you CANNOT defend it. It does take away from their accomplishments on the field, they are the best. Off the field not so much this time.

I am disappointed for them. I am old, old, old and look up to these young men as disciplined professionals, Mahomes in particular as a natural leader. Unfortunately we find our Gods have feet of clay. So I will say it for you OK BOOMER. On the up side they will surely grow into their better selves.

Yeah, I am a huge Chiefs fan and am thrilled that they won the Super Bowl. I am not thrilled that the parade became such a drunken bash. I wasn't able to go to the Royals victory parade so I spent a lot of money to get a hotel and make sure I was able to attend the Chiefs parade. While I enjoyed the spectacle I was left feeling a little hollow as the players being so clearly drunk and out of control really sent a bad message. While II will still enjoy the team and pull for them I now see a more accurate side of the players that was really disappointing. It didn't have to be that way. The entire city has been celebrating and it just seems to me that it could have been a classier experience for all of us.
