Well to give some context, I have only been to two NFL games in my life:

One was in STL against the Seahawks on Oct. 1st
and the other was, of course, KC vs the ravens oct. 7th.

Now, I rooted for the chiefs over the ravens (the chiefs were/have been my one and only team since I first watched football when I was 11). The funny this is, is that the STL rams fans were more courteous when I was rooting AGAINST their team, then the chiefs fans where when I was rooting FOR their team.

People drunk, throwing up behind me...it was just sickening. I didnt get that in STL. Neither one drew a crowd worth a damn.

Arrowhead stadium is nice, dont get me wrong. Wasnt my first time there. People were rude, hostile, and ignorant. I am sure many other stadiums are similar but I didnt get that in Seattle during the preseason (I was there doing an internship) and I didnt get that from the STL fans.

I have been to Arrowhead rooting for the opposing team many times and never had problems. A lot of heckling but it is always good natured, never anyone doing anything threatening.

It's a sporting event, not a polo game where everyone is sipping tea. If you cant take that stuff, dont go.

And rumors leaking out this week are of TWO expansion teams.

Do the math. Even when NHL teams supposedly lose $, they are not losing $. There are arena corporations, RSNs, etc. too.

Clearly you can't read. I said I was rooting FOR the CHIEFS, not against them.
