So far Kansas City local TV news or so many hack newsletters haven't mentioned a HORRIFIC BRAWL that has garnered news coverage from across the globe.
More than anything else . . . Some old school dude getting beaten unmercifully and taking several shoes to the face represents this week's image of Kansas City in the minds of news readers across planet Earth.

Remember not so long ago a fan was beaten to death in the parking lot and the brutality of Kansas City football fans should not be discounted.
Also, smarter TKC readers mention that last year an R&B star punching a cop was tolerated and this might have set the tone for lawlessness at Arrowhead.
Accordingly . . .
We share a collection of links as a sign that local media has FAILED this town once again in providing a real life glimpse of what life is REALLY like in Kansas City beyond the hype.
