Take that, Chiefs.

The KC Chiefs just blocked me on Twitter. LOL Last night, I tweeted that for the 4th year in a row, the Chiefs are at the bottom of salary cap spending and that the owner, Clark Hunt, is hoarding cap dollars. The Chiefs commitment to mediocrity has made me not care much about being a fan... They responded with this DM.

I responded that it is good to know that the KC Chiefs have an immature teenager running their social media.
I, as a fan for my whole life of nearly 40 years, who have never seen the Chiefs in a Superbowl, nor have I seen a playoff win in nearly 20 years, nor have I seen a QB drafted in the last 27 years... I have a right to be pissed. The Kansas City Chiefs have no right to be pissy toward the fans. We are the ones paying your salaries. Shame on you, Chiefs. Oh, and congrats on 50 years of being in KC. 10 years of greatness, followed by 40 years of pathetic profiteering.

Gonna make some noise means they'll be better than most members thought at the time. Since then, the national media has jumped in as well.

There's certainly enough talent to win a playoff game and I'm not throwing in the towel after one game. It's way too early for that.
I agree. That doesn't mean I'm not expecting disappointment.

That would be sweet if the chiefs got a stop or two. Then Arrowhead could really do it's thing. That opening drive killed the crowd

True.

But is it still likely?

That's what you said.

You said a playoff win was likely.

Chances diminishing?

Right.

And it also doesn't mean that Cannoli hasn't been a disaster terms of marketing, the fan base, hiring and firing along with employee treatment.

This roster, outside of QB, is pretty loaded. Also, I made those comments before Menzie went on IR. The Chiefs faced the Falcons without the services of Hali, Flowers, Bailey and Toribio.

All is not lost because they were beaten by a better team on Sunday.

After one game? No.

I hope this picks up legs and he gets more interviews, he seemed very knowledgeable and together, even with a guy like Lazlo who likes to throw curveballs at people.
It would appear that Teedubya is the curveball.

Are you trying to say Jesus Pioli can't hit a curveball?

Chiefs apologize after Twitter message to fan goes viral
By: Annie Greenberg

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Kansas City Chiefs may have messed with the wrong guy.

A direct message from the official @kcchiefs Twitter account to an angry fan ignited a social media firestorm Tuesday, underscoring the viral nature of this digital age.

Travis Wright, a global social media manager based in Kansas City, tweeted a gripe about the Chiefs' low payroll spending on Monday night. The next day, he posted the following direct message he received from the team's official Twitter account (pictured above):

"Would help if you had your facts straight. Your choice to be a fan. cc get a clue"

Wright posted the screengrab of the message on several social media sites Tuesday, including Reddit, where the thread received over 50 comments within the first hour.

The Chiefs tweeted the following apology late Tuesday afternoon:

I apologize to the fans for my response to a tweet sent to me earlier. No excuse for my actions. I am truly sorry and it won't happen again.

A team spokesman confirmed that the apology was in relation to the exchange with Wright, and said an employee in the social media department acknowledged making a mistake. They declined to provide further comment.

But Wright wasn't even aware of the apology tweet until a Reddit user pointed it out. The Chiefs blocked his account, @teedubya, on Twitter after the exchange Monday night.

He said that as of early Tuesday evening, he was still blocked.

"The funny thing about (the apology) is that I personally didn't see it," Wright said. "They didn't apologize to me, they apologized to everyone else because of the backlash."

Wright said that as the social media manager for a Fortune 500 company, he has to deal with disgruntled customers on an almost daily basis. While it is easy to get frustrated, he explained that he knows he's the voice of a billion-dollar brand, and makes sure he represents it properly.

"That's why I made a big stink about it," he said. "I'm not trying to get the guy (who sent me the message) fired, I' m trying to get them to understand they can't treat their fans with contempt."

Of all the fans the Chiefs could have riled up, Wright was probably not the best choice. With more than 123,400 Twitter followers -- compared to the Chiefs' 107,600 -- he has a larger audience than the team.

Wright, who is from Butler, Mo., and now lives in Lee's Summit, said he has been a Chiefs fan his whole life and has gone to more than 100 games.

He hopes the Chiefs learn from this experience.

"In the Twitter age, everyone has an audience -- mine happens to be over 120,000," he said. "Now, every voice can be heard."

As long as he represents himself well publicly, it is GREAT exposure.
