Report: Chiefs HC Andy Reid's face shield to be equipped with defogging product

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid should have a bit more success following the NFL's protocols related to wearing masks on the sideline this week. Reid was the talk of the town following the Week 1 tilt with the Houston Texans, but it wasn't because he coached a clinic around Bill O'Brien.


Woke Double Take

"Just because the name isn't an overt racial slur doesn't mean it isn't an offensive misappropriation of term, used to commodify and dehumanize a people."

Every single sports team, professional or otherwise, with a Native American name, mascot and/or logo should have to change it or be banned from their field of play. And, since they'll be playing on Sunday - for the second weekend in a row, on a field emblazoned with the words "End Racism" - why not start with the Kansas City Chiefs?

Super Bowl Champs Confront Empty Feelings

The atmosphere created by 70,000 empty seats

INGLEWOOD, Calif. - A barrage of fireworks erupted. Plumes of smoke hung in the air. The chorus of a catchy Nipsey Hussle song blared from the loudspeakers. Only one element was missing Sunday night when the 2020 Los Angeles Rams sprinted out of the tunnel to take the field for the first time at their palatial new stadium: There were no fans in the stands to applaud them.

The economics of empty NFL stadiums as the season begins - Marketplace

The NFL season kicks off Thursday. The Wall Street Journal reports that NFL revenue could fall as much as $4 billion in 2020, depending on how many fans eventually attend games. That's the reality in Los Angeles, where developers built a grand, new stadium with room for 70,000 people to watch the Rams and Chargers play football - but until things change, there will be no fans.

And yet they'll still win by more than 10 points. Weird.

The "woke" column was excellent, more people should read it instead of just defending millionaries and billionaires.

Skimmed it and NO THANKS.

Just looked like more social justice trash from somebody who has probably never watched a game.

Sorry to wake you up from your food coma. Hopefully, there are other people who are not so reactionary and closed off to new ideas.

3:28 we're not closed off to new ideas, just to silly ones.

But how about you? Doesn't the fact that the "new ideas" are held only by a vociferous mini minority and some lefty news outlets diminish their validity? Or are you closed off to other opinions?

Yeah, great column by NBC News. NFL needs to drive more fans away. Chiefs look like ass right now.

This year's Super Bowl halftime show will be two faggots violating each other's end zones.

FUCK ANY sports team that places the names of sex offenders, criminals and violent thugs on their helmets and expects their fans to "kneel" in supplication of the new 'normal'.

FUCK THE CHIEFS, FUCK THE National Felon League and fuck the wet by every rain, blown by every wind fan who sells his/her soul to the devil for a ride on the bandwagon.

The kicker saves the day and not the over paid, over rated fool who loves playing the race game.

^^And yet it was Mahomes who won the game. Picking up 21 yards on a third and 20 with hi legs. You ignorant degenerate, geezer fucktard. Weird.

Butker, a good Catholic boy, BTW, the only one who showed up to play today. Patty Cakes should be buying him beers, for life, after his performance. Butker only kneels for God, refreshing to see a wholesome, humble person win the game today.

Bandit said...

I don't really care how the game came out. Just trying to make trollboy feel important. Sarcasm is fun!

Super Dave said...

Either the Chargers have gotten much better using a rookie back up QB or the Chiefs really suck.

7:14 has never been correct a fucking day in his life and that ain't no weird shit either.

Bandit said...

He revels in being absolutely dead wrong 7:22. I think it's mandatory for flaming libtard Demonrats.

Mahomes looked like ass in this game. He missed many open receivers. In the true spirit of Libtard socialism, all players should be paid the same amount of money. This is a basic premise of BLM. In this case, Chiefs need more white players who aren’t egomaniacal.

Men died so the chiefs could take a knee. Those are the real HEROES.

Only COWARDS would watch and support the chiefs.

But I thought you lying, geriatric, fucktards we’re boycotting the NFL? Bunch of ting bastards. You all lack the courage of your “convictions”. Chiefs win! You fucktards lose.

Who hates KC and hates the Chiefs but is dancing all through this KC Chief's thread?

Why it's lonely Bandit all alone in BFE.

Now that will be a half time show. Chimpy may “choke” under pressure. I know he is used to sucking black pecker normally.
