Found October 14, 2013 on The Penalty Flag:
So this is what the NFL has come to…76,394 people screaming like they never have all so they can set a new record for the loudest crowd roar in an outdoor stadium. Isn’t this just a little pathetic? The Kansas City Chiefs fans cheered so loud it was the “loudest recorded crowd at a sporting event.”  - Way to go, you have something to tell your grandchildren. The more important record were the 10 sacks by the Chiefs defense on Terrelle Pryor and the Oakland Raiders dismal offense... Read more

  • While the Chiefs D is doing great things, don’t for a minute think the fans are not paying attention. Part of the fans duty is to support the team. How do you do that? You root and cheer. If you look at it from that perspective, the fans are just trying to equal the accomplishments of the D, and I’d have to say they have exceeded that. So, this years’ KC squad so far has a good ball control offense, a better than average defense and as always, the extremely supportive fans (record setting, you might say).
  • Kansas City fans did not concentrate on the wrong record. We have been the loudest stadium in the world since 1990 and we had a chance yesterday to validate our claim. You have to be kidding me. Just the title of your article comes off negative and to be truthful, ignorant. The 78,000 who showed up yesterday showed up to cheer on a great team and to help the Chiefs go 6-0 while the sound record was just icing on the cake. Kansas City is one of the greatest football towns on the planet and our fans are extremely hungry for a championship and your article is plain stupid.
  • Maybe you were hard up for an article, but fans being passionate about their team and defense is part of the deal. Good work, KC!
  • So you think it is "just a little pathetic". Have you ever been to Arrowhead Stadium? The fans have stuck by their team through the worst of times and we love football.!!! We don't play in a stadium where it runs across the screen "Quiet Please" and that is what I saw when I watched Sunday's game at Gillette Stadium. Try to find something else to write about!! Some have said "that if you haven't experienced Arrowhead you might want to put it on your bucket list" and I agree!!

Andy Reid must of thought, Alex Smith & the Kansas Chiefs were trying to kill him in the 1st half, lucky he has a strong heart.

The Kansas City Chiefs are still undefeated and now sit at 6-0. It wasn’t before they administered a stress test on the team’s head coach Andy Reid. The way the Chiefs played the first half against the Raiders, you would have thought they were trying to give Reid a heart attack. Alex Smith and his Chiefs couldn’t find the end zone in the first quarter of the game. The team...

Kansas City Chiefs Fall Way Short of Setting New Crowd Noise Record

The Kansas City Chiefs and their fans are experiencing something that they are not accustomed to--success. After a gritty 24-7 win over the Oakland Raiders the team is one of the last undefeated teams in the NFL. So yeah, I'd say the fans in Arrowhead have plenty to cheer about.

Is the Chiefs Defense Good Enough?

It's time to adjust our expectations for this season.I've been holding back a little. I've been hurt before. Every time I've allowed myself to believe we could be more than a playoff team (OK, that hasn't really happened in a decade, but still), I found my hopes smashed into a thousand pieces by the Bills, The Kicker Who Shall Not Be Named, or Peyton Manning ...

The Chiefs are the most dangerous team no one is talking about

Starting a season 6-0 in the NFL is an impressive feat that usually results in media hype leading into every game. “Will Team X stay unbeaten as they travel to City Y to play Team Y?” With just two perfect teams left in the NFL, one would believe both those teams would garner a large segment on ESPN leading up to each game. If that’s what you’d believe would happen, you’d...

Oakland Raiders Didn't Handle Business or Kansas City Chiefs

In my last article that came out on Saturday, "Oakland Raiders Poised to upset Kansas City Chiefs," I predicted how and why the Raiders would get the win in Kansas City on Sunday. The game went right along with the prediction until the bottom fell out in the second half, especially in the fourth quarter. You can't put this on the defense because they held up...
