Nzoner's Game Room>NFLPA Survey: Clark rated with an F-

I don't get this.

The @NFLPA just released their player team report cards for 2024 and the results are ... suboptimal for the Chiefs.

Head coach Andy Reid gets A+ but Chiefs rank dead last in training staff and ownership. Ownership gets an F- from the players. pic.twitter.com/2XyHkQfFru

No but telling the team you are going to do something then not doing it, is not a good look.

It's not.

I understand why the players don't like it - it's not at all impressive in person, regardless of the photographs. That said, there's just not a shitload that can be done quickly. You'll have to excavate further area under the stadium to expand it.

I can't speak to the training facilities or anything - they didn't let us go back there. But the locker room is nothing to write home about. I suspect the overwhelming majority of guys came from better lockerrooms in college if they played at Power 5 schools. I know Mizzou's is better.

Yea pretty much any P5 locker room is probably better, the shit they put in those is pretty ridiculous.

The players want the shiny new training/practice facilities that have recently been built in Dallas, Minnesota, Miami, Las Vegas, etc.

This is where the players spend most of their time during the season and these facilities include a locker room that is used way more frequently than the home stadium locker room (that the Chiefs renovated at Arrowhead in 2021 but it's only used on gamedays).

Is it a bad look for well paid players to be crying about facilities? Maybe, but that is what they are expressing with these survey results.

The Kansas Jayhawks are about to have better football locker rooms for their practices than the Chiefs.

Iím a proud Jayhawk fan, but that absolutely should be looked at as a priority for ownership. If Clark really did make a promise and not follow through with it, then this feels pretty understandable.

Yeah college locker rooms are insane.

I do think the players are moreso talking about the locker room at the practice facility than at Arrowhead. The one at Arrowhead is comparable to others around the league and plus, they only have to be there a few hours 10-12 weeks a year. The practice facility one where they are there for multiple hours a day for 6 months a year is just bad. Them getting new chairs instead of the stools they had as their upgrade is kind of hilarious :-)

Oh hey, thanks for 146k bonus and an 11k SB ring, but what REALLY bothers me is the practice facility locker room.

Where you shower and change clothes.

Remember the franchise episode that had the opening going through that locker room? The only thing that caught my eye was how messy it was.

I imagine Clark will come through and solve this first world problem.

How do the Packers get rated higher? Their stadium is older than dirt.

It's just the going rate of what has to be done. In college teams like USC had to invest a shit ton of money because recruits thought they had shitty facilities compared to say Oregon.

Also the indoor practice facility has very little sideline in areas. This is what led to Nazee Johnson's injury last year, and IIRC someone smashed into a door and cut themselves on the glass a year or two earlier.

The Packers did a complete and full reno on that stadium not that long ago, while it's the same stadium everything in it is new.

I think itís BS too but we do have one of the best locker room environments in the league and players getting along is a big part of thatÖ. And.. Winning..
