Default Kansas City May Lose Chiefs

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,506325,00.html

Officials are worried that Kansas City's Major League football and baseball teams may be forced to leave because of budget deficits.

Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders has reported an $85 million budget shortfall that needs to be taken care of by the end of the month and may force the Chiefs and the Royals to go elsewhere, according to KMBC.com.

To relieve the deficit, Mayor Mark Funkhouser has proposed a budget that would eliminate the nearly $2 million the city spends annually on the Truman Sports Complex, the station said.

If the proposal is passed, the city will pull the yearly contribution, breaking the lease on the sports complex with no guarantee of keeping the two teams.

"This came with no notice to us. We were unaware that this was even going to be an issue," Sanders said in a radio interview. "Those leases are now gone. We would be on a tightrope or a high wire with no safety net."

"A source with knowledge of the situation has reminded us that the Hunt family has committed $125 million to Arrowhead Stadium renovations that are due to be completed in 2010."

Bottom line the Chiefs are going nowhere.

End of thread.

I thought this was going to be another thing over the actual "chiefs" name. I was gonna say, you'd expect a name like the Redskins would go first. I mean come on, seriously. haha.

Another conversation entirely.

No city deserves to lose their team. Not one. Its like losing a family member that you think about everyday.

You don't drop 125 millon of your own money like Chiefs owner Clark Hunt just did in to a stadium then move the team away from that stadium.

Build the new stadium and the fans will come. Who the **** would ever want to go to the Coliseum in the middle of the hood to watch an NFL team? Not a lot of people.

Move em to OKC...not too far of a drive, and I could have a local team to support. Although, I'm not the only Broncos fan here, I did see a guy wearing a broncos beanie at a Thunder game.

But like Splat said, they arent going anywhere. I guess I'm just a little anxious to get a team here haha

Here is an essay I wrote back in 8th grade about teams relocating
Relocation of NFL Teams: Its all true. I am completely against teams moving:

Have you ever wondered what happened to the cities that once had a NFL franchise? The relocation of a National Football League team can have devastating consequences to the fans, players and the city. Since 1960, eight NFL franchises relocated to a new area. Some cities got their team back after time, but some didn’t. Luckily, a NFL team has not moved in over ten years, but that might change in the future.
Relocating NFL franchises can take a toll on the mentality of fans and players. In 1996, the Cleveland Browns moved to Baltimore and became know as the Ravens. The Browns’ fans revolted and filed over one-hundred lawsuits. During the Browns’ last game in Cleveland, chaos broke out. In the last moments of the game, fans started to tear apart the stadium. Seats and railings were ripped off and thrown. In 1984, the Baltimore Colts moved to Indianapolis overnight. According to Wikipedia.com, several Mayflower Transit trucks were dispatched and lugged all the equipment out of town at three o’clock in the morning. This affected the legal system of Baltimore. To prevent the relocation, Baltimore was going to pass a law (eminent by domain) which would put off the moving. However, the Colts owner and Indianapolis’ mayor reached an agreement before Maryland passed the bill. That was the reason for the abrupt relocation of the franchise. Relocation of a NFL franchise can affect the lives of the players, too. Once their team moves, they have to move too. The players are forced to sell their houses and buy new ones. Their children will have to make new friends and attend a different school. If a player becomes stressed over these things, it may negatively affect their performance on the field. Relocation can cause havoc for a city, players and fans.
Many restaurants and retail stores rely on a team for their success. Sports bars bring in more people if they are on TV. More people will mean more money. There are also countless stores that rely on the teams merchandise and memorabilia. If the team were to move the store will have an extraordinarily tough time surviving. If a team store were to close, the employed become unemployed. Personally, not including ticket prices, I have spent over five-hundred dollars on Bills memorabilia and merchandise in my lifetime. If the team moves, all my Bills belongings become worthless.
I surveyed twenty-five people over eighteen years of age about the topic of moving a NFL franchise. Not surprisingly, twenty-four believed that if a team where to relocate, it would negatively affect the fans, players, and the city. I asked the one person for his reasoning for being a proponent of moving a franchise. He wanted too see a bigger city like Los Angeles with a team. He also said the small market teams should be replaced with large market teams. I countered his argument by explaining how the Los Angeles Rams had to move in the first place. It was due to poor attendance at their football games. I also explained how a team that moved to a new area may have a small fan base because of the team’s performance. If the team plays poorly in the beginning, many fans will be turned away. The team wont have the loyal smaller market Packers, Browns, Bills, etc. fans that always sellout no matter the teams record. About three-hundred people took a survey asking many questions about expansion and relocation of the NFL on Misterpoll.com. One question was “What NFL team(s) should be moved?” The answer with the most votes was “The NFL doesn't need to relocate”. Thirty-one percent of the people believed no team should move.
The relocation of a NFL franchise can produce drastic consequences. It can hurt the mental state of the fans. Also, players’ lives will change along with their family. The moving of a team will negatively affect the financial situation of the city. Businesses that rely on Bills memorabilia will go bankrupt. Some of the best sports bars will have a difficult time staying open. The best way to prevent the relocation of your favorite team is to buy tickets and support your team. Though it’s a possibility, hopefully we will not witness a relocation of a National Football League franchise in our life time.

id watch the giants at a high school gymnasium for all i care.


The problem with LA is its fickle fan base. They love the Lakers bc theyre always good. They pretend to love USC. But football has too much parity for a team to constantly be good, and during bad times, that football team won't be supported in LA.

Seriously. The Kings, Clippers, and Lakers all play in the Staples center. Say something?

the kings and the clippers suck, but there's no talk of them being moved. I think LA should get another chance at a football team. its been 15 years or so.
