The Lounge>Popping my "away game" cherry

A buddy, his brother, my son and I are going to Denver for the 10/17 game. We're behind the Chiefs bench in row 4. I can't wait to walk in wearing our Chiefs gear. I've never been to an away game. My son is super pumped which makes me excited.

In another first for me, I'm going to Royals game this weekend. Not really a baseball fan but I'm going with friends, son, and a nephew who are.

Hopefully you bring us some luck to Dungver. Gonna be rough going into that high altitude on a short week. Gotta run the total to 9 straight this year!

Been to San Diego/LA, Denver, and Houston for away games with zero incidents.

The only time something MIGHT of happened was when we were in Denver on a Sunday night and a Bronco fan was staring at my wife for most of the 1st quarter when there was a stop in the action. I shot in front of my wife, directly into his eyesight and winked. Not sure if it was meant to make her feel unwelcome at Denver or something more carnal...but it diffused the whole situation and I didn’t catch him doing it again.

You’re going to get poked at, but as others have said in this topic: its all in how you respond. If you smile and have fun with it, everyone can have a good time. If you get easily offended and act as if the guy telling you “Mahomes is gay LOL” is akin to him sexually assaulting your mother, then yeah....things can go South really quick.

Obviously, if the heckling is constant or getting out of hand, ask them to chill or call security. It’s not that hard and the problems really start only because of alcohol and men trying to prove their masculinity in front of large crowds who don’t give two shits.

If they talk shit about Mahomes I'll fight the whole crowd!

This is true....Steelers game last year, Atlanta game a few years back (the Berry 2pt conversion game)....I always thought Chiefs fan travel pretty well, and definitely a close-knit group. I'm in for the Jax game, along with the BBQ and Tailgating, so I'm stoked for that....

I was also looking for another game to go to, preferably at Arrowhead, but doesn't matter. I do a lot of work in Chicago and could wrap that game around a business trip, but Chicago in December is not my idea of fun....

Been to most of the Chiefs games at Denver except maybe 2-3 years since 2000. I have always worn my Chiefs gear and cheer for the team. You can give some shit if you can take some shit. As most have already alluded to, don't act like an idiot and you will be fine. After the game, I would always walk down to the light rail station and take the trains home, sometimes alone, and have never felt threatened/unsafe.

As far as Chiefs away games the most trouble I ever had was at a Vikings/Chiefs game,I guess that sting from Superbowl IV has never subsided.Even the next day at a sports bar they were still being jerks.

I've been to a few dozen Chiefs away games, and my worst experience by far was in Oakland where I genuinely feared for my safety (and was pushed and shoved by dozens of people and nearly punched by a couple). I've had some bad experiences in Foxboro as well. Jets/Giants and Bears fans have been mildly abusive. Never done Philly though imagine that's likely pretty bad too. All others have been relatively benign.

As others have said, if you keep to yourself, you'll be fine 99% of the time.

As far as having a blast at an away game that would be N'Awlins,even had a Saints fan take my Chiefs cap and put on his head as he celebrated a KC TD with me.

Got a buddy in Louisiana. He came up here to Arrowhead when we played last. (2016 I think). Made the deal that I will go to New Orleans when we play next year there. So that will be my first opponent game I guess. When I was a kid in Texas, I did get to go to a Cowboys/Falcons game. But I don't think that counts :-)
