Arrowhead Stadium place of citywide, civic sorrow
The Kansas City Star
From the packed parking lot and filled seats at Arrowhead Stadium, people traveling past the Truman Sports Complex on Interstate 70 on Sunday would have thought the fans were gathering to see a winning team.
That’s hardly been the case during this and the last few seasons. The 26-16 Kansas City Chiefs loss to the Oakland Raiders — the sixth straight at Arrowhead — made the stadium seem like a gathering for a citywide funeral; burial at the end of the season.
People keep wearing their red Chiefs jerseys on Fridays and during game day hoping for the best, only to be let down tragically on game day. It’s sad, and a citywide depression follows each game — whether it’s in area grocery stores, the malls, businesses or homes.
Just when diehard Kansas City Chiefs fans think it can’t get any worse, the Chiefs prove them wrong and dig their NFL grave even deeper. This is not what we pay taxes for to improve the stadiums and keep two losing teams in town for.
