GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't get enough of sports even on a development board? Get your fix here. Expect heavy moderation on smack talk.

I'm not a sports fan, but I am an inveterate KC fan. Why is the Star so determined to cast every Chiefs win as a "dirty" win?

Because they have been. Very frustrating that we can't put bad teams away early. We play down to our competition.

Hope Chiefs win and Bills lose this weekend. Losing an AFC championship game due to cancelled Bengals-Bills game will take millions out of the economy plus the free advertising and glamour shots of KC.

Agreed fully. What a sham. Cincinnati got screwed too. We all know Cincy was gonna win that Buffalo game.

The Chiefs blew winnable games against both of those teams, plus are responsible for one of Indianapolis's four wins on the season. They don't exactly deserve home field advantage if they're facing the Bills.

And one of those 3 losses was a game that Buffalo should’ve played but didn’t. And they probably would’ve lost there too. So no, it’s not fair to the Chiefs.

I mean the Bills were in pole position for the top seed, so if anyone should be complaining about what's "not fair," it's them. "They probably would have lost" is a joke of an argument -- they didn't lose, and were also denied an opportunity to win, because the game was canceled. The Chiefs might have to play the AFC Championship at a neutral site now, but the Bills lost their opportunity at home field advantage as well, and on top of that, they also lost a chance at a bye (and all of this because one of their own players almost died on the field). In what was not an ideal solution for anyone, the Chiefs made out best of all.

The Chiefs making 5 straight AFC Championships is also making a significant economic impact.
2022 AFC Championship Game (01/30/2022): $13.2 million
2021 AFC Championship Game (01/24/2021): $2.5 million (attendance of 17,000 due to COVID-19)
2020 AFC Championship Game (01/19/2020): $12.7 million
2019 AFC Championship Game (01/20/2019): $12.5 million

University of Cincinnati estimates the wild card weekend could have brought in more than $7 million this year. Wonder what the divisional numbers were?

Also what an awesome kick off to 2023 for sports in KC:
- Chiefs Divisional Round
- Chiefs Conference Championship Round
- Big 12 Tournament
- March Madness Elite 8
- NFL Draft

^I wrote a few months ago that early 2023 is the busiest stretch in KC history, atleast in my lifetime. I’d never seen so many events in a 3 month span here.

Wonderful to be back in the Superbowl!!!!

A lot of great coverage of KC over the last couple of weeks.

Chiefs are really banged up. The list of injuries from the game yesterday is pretty concerning. I am hoping two weeks is enough for most to heal.


On a separate note - glad Lucas didn't stoop to the level of the Cincy mayor (aka jabroni). I know it was an attempt at humor but it failed miserably. Wonder where he got the phrase "KC is named after a neighboring state"? Sounds like an old KCRAG debate.

I went to the game last night and it felt about the same electricity as that Bills/Chiefs playoff game last year. Amazing. I remember a year ago at this time a couple ignorant fools (won't name names) were idiotically saying Mahomes was overhyped.
