The Lounge>Listen, people. We need to have a talk about a Chiefs name change at some point.
Rain Man 11:59 AM 06-29-2020
I think the odds are low of a name change, but given the current state of affairs it's a non-zero possibility. And if we don't have input, the name will end up being some trite adjective in front of the word Hawks, which has happened with pretty much every other sports name change in America. Green Hawks, Fighting Hawks, Screeching Hawks, whatever. We don't want that.

I suspect that some members of Chiefs management read this site occasionally to get our takes on who should be starting at left guard or how they should handle a particular contract, so this is our chance to have input into the process. (Oh, and hi, Clark. Nice work last year, my friend. PM me about getting together for dinner next time you're in Denver.)

So we'll have a renaming tournament. In this thread, you may propose up to three names, and I'll structure everyone's suggestions into heats. Using the Chiefsplanet brain trust, we'll give Clark and his team valuable input into what the Chiefs should become if we eventually delete our homage to indigenous plains cultures.

As the first of my three names, I'll go with Ermines. It's clearly a great contender.

As my second name, I'll go with Chameleons. We can get high tech uniforms that change to match our multi-colored field turf, and it'll confuse opponents. Plus, it's alliterative.

Still thinking about my third name.

Nothing wrong with Chiefs.

I was always fond of our former Hockey team.

Kansas City Scouts
or
Kansas City Jazz

I think the name is safe. As mentioned, Chiefs is a term of respect unlike Redskins.

Gone will be the chop, the white woman riding in on a horse, stuff like that. And maybe at some point they'll update the helmet/look.

In today's cancel culture our old negro league baseball team KC Monarchs wouldn't survive.

Also speaking of Negro League Baseball Museum. When will it be changed to African American League Museum?

See, that's the disconnect. You assume people will act rationally. I have some really bad news for you, man.

Apparently there was a short-lived NFL team in Kansas City in 1924 called the Kansas City Blues. We could take that name and keep the red jerseys just to mess with people.

The Blues later became the Kansas City Cowboys, but Cowboys is a stupid name so we won't consider that.
