Don't get it twisted, we realize that most fanboys don't have enough control over their emotions to realize that ALL modern day sports are about as rigged as wrestling matches or televised singing competitions.
However, rather than blame politics or the varied and nearly indecipherable political pronouncements of the players . . . Let's look at the bright side . . .
The fans, the crowd are the most entertaining aspect of the game and coronavirus has killed any sense/illusion of community among Chiefs fans.
Pandemic pro-football simply isn't any fun to watch and even the players seem to be disenchanted with this sanitized version of the game.
Our main takeaway . . .
Fake crowd noise is a tragic and unimaginative solution to the removal of fans during the pandemic and offers a glimpse at how the NFL truly regards its strongest supporters. For players, team owners and administrators, their patrons are nothing more than a lifeless cacophony of indistinguishable sounds that can be easily turned on or off. To be fair, the history of Western civilization is pretty much built on this guiding principle.
None of that to say that people who enjoy these games shouldn't rejoice over the dominant Kansas City team. Even better, the ratings seem to be holding up . . . Nevertheless, it's worth remembering that in only a few short years the Kansas City Royals made a bittersweet journey from first to worst there's nothing that guarantees this town's football team couldn't make the same trip.

Kansas City Slowdown
After a low-scoring first half, the Kansas City Chiefs found themselves in the midst of a relatively quiet game with the New England Patriots. Then, the Patriots' offense and Chiefs' defense found themselves in a battle for superiority. At first, it seemed a Brian Hoyer led offense was gaining traction.
Pats Coach Throws Fit
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick was furious after officials botched a call in the first half of the team's matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4. On a third-and-4, Patriots defensive end Chase Winovich showed up with a monstrous sack.
Best Defense Of The Night
11:41 PM ET Adam TeicherESPN Staff Writer Close Covered Chiefs for 20 seasons for Kansas City Star Joined ESPN in 2013 KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Referee Tony Corrente said Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was "being controlled quite a bit" as the reason a key play in Monday night's game against the New England Patriots was ruled a sack and not a fumble.
Fanboys Pile On
Not too many fans of other teams will feel bad for them, but the Patriots absolutely got hosed by the refs on a Patrick Mahomes fumble moments ago. New England has been matching up nicely with Mahomes and the Chiefs thus far tonight.
Cowtown Crowds Decline
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - On Monday night, some bars weren't as packed as you might expect for a primetime Kansas City Chiefs game. Fans who were out told FOX4 it might be because the game was rescheduled, but it could also be because of continuing fears about COVID-19.
