Kansas City Chiefs Want Perfect Attendance
As Head Coach Herm Edwards continues to move the crowd as an ESPN analyst, the people running the team are apparently grasping at straws to ensure fans don’t abandon the team like they did towards the end of the season (nine-game losing streaks can do that). So, what goodies have they offered Chiefs fans to entice them to come to Arrowhead?
Is it the promise of improvement? Nope. Did they offer a weekend hang-out package with Jared Allen and his Samson-like mullet (although, I’m not sure the Chiefs insurance would cover the potential fall-out)? Nope. Did they promise to at least improve their offense? No, again. Lower ticket prices? See a pattern?
So what, pray tell, did the Chiefs front-office come up with to attract fans who are unhappy with the direction of the franchise? Hats. That’s right. Hats. If you are a KC season ticket holder and you use your entire allotment, you will be rewarded with a “commemorative ball cap remembering Chiefs founder Lamar Hunt…”
Now before you clog up their bandwidth with ticket requests, there’s more. These hats are limited edition and will not be available to the general public, meaning you and the rest of your “Perfect Attendance” brethren can wear your hat with the knowledge that no one else but you all will have them.

Considering that season tickets start at $390 and extend up to $1100, that has to be one of the most expensive “free giveaways” I’ve ever seen. And just think, you’ll only have to sit through eight games of mediocrity to receive one of these gems. With that in mind, I ask the Chiefs fans again:
