View Full Version : The Chiefs Hate Their Employees

In the past, ticket takers and parking lot attendants at Arrowhead Stadium have had a nice perk of the job. After their duties were complete, they were allowed to watch the rest of the Kansas City Chiefs (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/kan/) game from inside the stadium. Now the Chiefs are taking away (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/07/20/chiefs-stadium-workers-losing-key-benefit-of-employment/) the privilege.

(I'd argue that they're doing them a favor)

if the kc chefs really wanted to help these employees, they'd give them a raise AND not allow them to see the games.

Yeah, this is ****ed up. You expect mostly die-hard Chief fans to work these jobs and then drive home/to a bar and miss at least a quarter of the game? That's total bull****.

It makes it worse, because the stadium is pretty isolated from everything else. There's no downtown nearby, like in Denver...

One year anomalies aside.....The Broncos and the Chargers are still the only relevant teams in the AFCW.

One year anomaly? How are the Broncos relevant?

This is great. This is going to be a great post to reference down the line.

We have a team with young talent all over the place that hasn't even begun to peak. And you guys are in year 1 of a labor stricken rebuild coming off firing a coach that made your franchise look bafoonish.

I tell you what...maybe I will give you the benefit of the doubt by assuming that you don't know what relevant means? I know you are a blind super homer but don't embarrass yourself.

You thought the Broncos were going 9-2 last year after their first run of games. So I have decided to approve of your opinion that the Chiefs are a one year anomaly. Carry on.

obviously your picture was at the beginning of the game. The near empty stadium is obviously in the 4th quarter when the Chiefs, once again, fail to win a playoff game.
While I would think it would be considered a raise to not get to stick around, those folks had that perk and there are tons of standing room only and I am sure there had been many no shows in the last few years.

Ok. This bolded part. Separate your thoughts and give the whole thing another try because it is a complete jumbled mess.

It is obvious when my picture was taken...however your picture? Could have easily been after or before the game. There is no reference for it. It was dis-ingeniousness to post but you knew that. No biggie.

All Haley has done is take a team that had little going for it and turned them around with young ascending players.

Besides his accusations that day have seemed to come full circle.

Fans are all the same in the NFL, even in cities that have the best fans. If your team is getting severely blownout at home than there will be lots of empty seats, regardless of what game it is.

It happens to every team, even the Broncos. We don't need to put pic's up to remind you of your stadium being half empty by the 3rd quarter when you played Oakland last season..

Chances are Tebow will never have his name on one of these jerseys, so yes I will take a pro bowl QB who had 27 TD's and only 7 TD's last season.

As it turns out, the Chiefs didn’t sell enough tickets to lift the local blackout of Sunday’s game against the Titans. But the 1,000 remaining non-premium seats were purchased by the Chiefs and/or one or more of their sponsors, according to Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star.
