Pre-Game #1 – Bucs v. Chiefs

From Arrowhead Stadium

It look like it’s going to be a pretty scarce crowd tonight for pre-season game No. 1 on the Chiefs schedule, as they host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

At 15 minutes before kickoff there were only a few thousand fans in the stands and the parking lots that are normally full at this point in pre-game, have plenty of open spaces.

For the pre-game warm-ups, the Chiefs had all 88 players on the field and in uniform. That included K Todd Carter, WR Keary Colbert and OT Jared Gaither. Carter is wearing No. 14, Colbert No. 84 and Gaither No. 71.

    Ahh, a third rate scrimmage for the fans and another successful NFL fleecing of the season ticket holders! Makes me happy to write that five figure check every year!

    Seem like a really poor effort, intentionally or not. Bad decision after bad decision, left first string no room to operate. Until Stanzi and his bunch showed up, the inbetweens look like they want out of KC as soon as possible.

    Hopefully, we will get a actual effort next week. Did not belong on the field with TB, a scrimage against a better team.

    In the next CBA, I’m hoping for 16 preseason games and 4 regular season games! The players and teams will still rake it in, but we fans won’t have to be bothered with our team winning or losing. We will just show up and spill cash like mindless robots. Rather than showing the game all of the time, the networks could televise brawls in the stands and intermitently cut to the players on the field. The players could have careers spanning 30 to 40 years since there would be no offseason injuries and virtually no contact in practice or on game day.

    ugh…what a clunker. The Bucs obviously put more into winning this game than the Chiefs, working their ones and two’s much longer than KC. What bothered me was the seeming lack of effort and conditioning and poor decision-making of many Chiefs players. It doesn’t matter if you are 2nd or 4th string, that wasn’t good enough.

    I wouldn’t read too much into it, though. It’s way too early for that. Still, there’s a lot of work to do.
