    Hi-Def 1080i TV was not the standard in 1997. More people stay home because the experience is just as good, if not better, on the TV

    Sargent Schultz? Getting in the wayback machine for that one, Greg. Only old white dudes, like me, will get that one.

    GH: Yeah, I thought Schultz’s “I know nothing” slogan might stretch some age groups but Nickelodeon has educated my kids on many of the b/w sitcoms. Hard to believe Beaver and Wally lived on the same planet as them.

    ShawnF – Right on. Count me among those who would rather watch the game at home in HD than in person. Add my DVR with the 30-second skip button to the mix, and I can watch an entire game in about an hour and 15 minutes instead of sitting through all the timeouts and dead space between plays.

    Going to a game is a minimum 5 hour, $125 proposition for two people. $250 if you actually want to be close enough to see and have a couple beers. No question some people feel there’s value there; I’m just not one of them.

    Genital Giant is BRILLIANT! Paybacks are a bitch Shaun Smith, can’t wait ’til you get yours. There are all sorts of defensive measures a guy can take to protect his balls. One in particular could cause Mister Smith to lose part of a finger. Let’s hope the equipment guys are up to speed on how to retaliate.

    You can be a homer but still be balanced in your reporting and analysis. Sam Mellinger does a good job of keeping it REAL.

    I’d love to see Soren and Nick in a sort of celebrity boxing match. I’ll put up two grand to the winners charity. Perfect event for KC Live. Glazer and jojo and Hearne should each be good for 2 LARGE. We’re up to 8 GRAND. That money could do a lot of good.

    Jay Mohr wrestling a gay mascot. There are no coincidences in life.

    Unless Uma Thurman asks me to take her I’m not planning on going to another Chiefs game at the Head, as long as I live. BIG SCREEN, with 5,000 watts of 7.1 audio, Lazy Boy, underwear, ice cold bottled beer and a hummer at halftime.

    The only way my wife could be any more perfect would be if she had cup holders and an identical twin that loved to swing.

    Greg, I disagree. I think the main reason why most teams in this area suck is because there are too many fans and cheerleaders when they should be journalists.

    Honestly it’s sickining when I hear a member of the media say then own season tickets. It hurts their credibility and hurts them doing their job honestly.

    The media should be the watchdog. But can you be a watchdog when you own season tickets? I don’t thnk so.

    No greg, it’s not old j-school thinking. It’s just good thinking.

    I sat in the club level Sunday (on the boss’s dime) and was shocked to see the ticket price ($245). For that kind of coin they need to be providing food, drink and a hooker.

    I disagree with Petro that the club level looked empty because people were hanging out inside. It wasn’t even crowded inside at halftime. I walked right up to the bar and got a drink without waiting. The weather was gorgeous … why would anybody want to be inside?

    By the way, the view was great from up there. (But I doubt I’m ever up there again.)

    But Petro and Wright are not direct competitors. Which makes their on-air back and forth seem pretty sophomoric to me. If they were going directly against each other in the same time slot, I’d have a bit more tolerance for it, perhaps.

    If Bill Romanowski, one of the dirtiest players of his era, REALLY thinks Smith’s crotch-grabbing is out of line, then that’s truly saying something. I would have thought that Romanowski would have resorted to that same tactic at one point or another (and I wouldn’t be surprised if he did).

    Why doesn’t Jay Mohr get his own radio show (or his own TV talk show, for that matter)? Seems like a waste of talent, him being on that silly sit-com. It seems like I never see or hear anything from the guy except when he guests on Rome.

    ___

    GH: Romanowski admited in his interview on 610 that he did once grab a guy’s balls but immediately “felt” like it was wrong. He said he never did it again. Obviously, the Genital Giant doesn’t feel the same.

    Donkeypunch sez:
    Reminds me of the time when I was 15 I believe and was at my best friend’s house and his drunken brother came home and said he was taking us out to get hookers. We’re 15 and don’t know any better, so I drive (b/c the older brother is hammered) down to Ray’s Playpen and proceed to pick up a hooker. Would have been $30 for three BJs, however me having such a keen eye even at a young age, could spot that she was really a dude.

    Moral of the story……….if you want a good hooker, don’t try hanging around Ray’s Playpen

    You’re welcome

    Nobody is buying tickets…getting face value is a home run. I flipped my seats and was glad to have some walking around money. That NFL Ticket at the sports bar is hard to beat. Nothing like watching games come in and listening to the Fantasy players get all amped up.

    That Sluggrrr story you wrapped with was an amazing get. Great Nick Wright quotes – I say, Go Nick! But your line about Shaun having that dude by the nut sack and “twisting the night away” is an absolute classic.

    Having spent time in club levels in the majority of NFL stadia, I can tell you that a very high percentage of club seat holders never return to their seats after halftime. For whatever reason, many people hang out in the club lounge, watching the game on monitors, rather than sitting in their seats.

    Why would anyone want to be at a Chiefs game surrounded by a bunch of drunk, screaming, whiskey tango blue collars wearing Chiefs jerseys and banging on chairs for 3+ hours? Are you kidding me?

    You want to rape people on the parking at $22, which should go down to about $12 if you show up less than an hour before kick off…then you want to rape people on the overpriced tickets, charge us for overpriced beer, make us walk half a mile to take a squirt and then half a mile back – a round trip which invariably includes scaling a flight of stairs…and on top of it all we get to sit there watching the game with no clue who’s hurt or banged up or who’s grabbing whose nuts, we get hardly any replays, we get no insight or breakdown of why a penalty was called, no super slo-mo on TD catches or runs, no multiple angle views of interceptions and sacks…and you want me to pay big money for this experience when I could sit in the comfort of my own living room, get all of these things plus a 15 ft walk to my kitchen for a cold beer and no line at the toilet when I have to drain the pipe…for free?

    Good luck with your ticket selling endeavors Chiefs front office.

    Oh and one more thing, re: NFL TV Rules –

    Blacking out the games is a bass-ackwards marketing failure. If you don’t show it on tv, that’s not going to make me race out to the stadium to buy a ticket. It’s going to ensure my yard is neat and my house is clean.

    That’s right – welcome to today’s football fan…
    chillin’ at home with a big flat screen HDTV and a shred of cheese on our homemade nachos.

    Hey that was a great play, let me rewind it on my DVR and see that again. Life is good.

    The stadiums are too far to drive to and from a game and the parking is way too high. I like the flat screen with friends at home or at the sports bar. The new areas of the stadium look pretty nice and the go to the park fans seem to be really happy and excited about it. Maybe it’ll create a winning atmosphere for the players and perhaps it will encourage them to get to the Superbowl.
