Resolved: Super Bowl Champion COVID-19 Kansas City Chiefs Are Boring

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.

Still , a win is a win and tonight we share the relevant news links on the topic . .

Fanboys Pile On

Cowtown Crowds Decline

Local bars, restaurants not seeing usual Chiefs game day traffic, but some still venture out

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.

Playing Through COVID

Chiefs fans comfortable attending game after players' COVID-19 diagnoses

Fox4 link is probably the most important one.

If local business doesn't benefit from the team then there goes the "home" team myth right there.

The refs defending the chiefs doesn't look good for the team. Sad.

^^^^I agree this game could have been much different if the correct call had been made.

NFL getting to be like NASCAR and wrestling where the rules change from one week to the next depending on who is picked to win.

Don't they have instant replay? I noticed Twitter was whining. Apparently the Patriots played so poorly, they left it in the refs' hands to win for them. I was in a local brewery that used to have the Chiefs games on all the time and tonight their big screen had MSNBC on. One of the smaller TVs had the game on and one old guy in a Montana jersey was watching it.

Anyone remember the prostitutes downtown before they cleaned it up? That girlfriend of Mahomes looks just like one of them, with those cheap boots and dress. She's really cheap and tacky. Look at that thin stringy hair. EWWWWWWWW A real lush. Poor thing I kinda feel sorry for her.

12:18 But we all know you are a strikingly handsome picture of a man.

If only we could all be so lucky. Correction, I thought you had a mask on.

The Kansas City slump is real. I sure hope that Mahomes had a trade clause put in his contract. It'd be a shame to end his career here if will always be three games away from the Super Bowl for the next 20 years.

The first game of the season. Thursday night. Wes the day the NFL died. The NFL promoted racism and diversity. They jammed it down people's throats. Got political. They dont respect the American flag. They kneel. Nobody cares about the league anymore. The players are no longer heros. The majority are trouble makers. That are on there own agenda. Not cool to associate yourself with the league. They really disrespectd there fan base. Ill never buy another NFL piece of merchandise. Or ever have emotion for a team. And I was a die hard fan. I think most fans are like me.

5:01 don’t turn it off, it’s way better than listening to the players and coaches yelling in an empty stadium, the echo effect is awful plus all the cussing has to be bleeped out. Get over it.

The run blocking was terrible. Better get that fixed quickly.

I don't disagree with the comments on Mahomes fiancee, but truth be told, I'd do her given the opportunity. I just don't have that huge bulge... of my wallet.

Brittany is a pretty girl and they have dated since high school.

Its a great romantic story and kudos to Mahomes for sticking with his high school sweetheart.

Other women will just be after his money.
