“We told them we’re not going backwards when we get to training camp,” Mahomes said. “When you’re at training camp you’re adding on and getting better every single day. You don’t want to lose all the stuff you’ve work for in OTAs and minicamp.
“So go out and enjoy the break but make sure you come back ready to go the first day.”

“Being used to the program—he was here the whole offseason—and then used to the offense, he was able to play faster,” said Andy Reid to reporters on Thursday. “He’s in great shape and did a heckuva job.

Love Butker. Good investment there. 😁

Just picked up a ticket to Jacksonville for the season opener. Now I just need to pick up some tickets for the game. What are people doing for tickets these days? There’s like a million apps now. Are any of them better than the rest?

for Home games I have been using Ticketsforless.com, I believe they are a local KC company, but they have $0 fees added onto the tickets so price you see if price you pay.

I also use SeatGeek, they tell you if the price on the ticket is high or low, so have had good success with that as well.

Are any of the Raptors even Canadian? Can you be a Canadian team if all the players are Amurican?

Leaf

I guess the blues aren’t an Amurican team as most of their players are Canadian. Hell American probably isn’t even the second most nationality on the team.

That goes for most NHL teams. Most MLB teams are almost split down the middle in terms of nationalities.

I’m just really, really glad Kawhi Leonard won it. And that he beat the team that robbed him of his first chance to win it.

Serge Ibaka isnt American, not Canadian, Congolese actually but not American. Then theres Gasol whos a Spaniard, Siakim is Cameroonian, Anunoby is English, and Boucher is Saint Lucian. So can you call them American if more than 1/3 of the team isnt from America?

Leonard is more than 1/3 of the team.

I love how Andy is the only one taking ownership of his mistake in the Hill case. KCStar and KCTV5 need to follow suit (they won’t). It wasn’t even Andy’s fault he gave bad info, he was more than likely taking the word of the Star and KCTV5. I hope this shows fans why Andy is the way he is in his pressers, I wouldn’t give these guys any information. Will be interesting to see the player interviews this year, if I was a player, I would give both the Star and KCTV5 the Marshawn treatment.

maybe even go the Belicheck route.

Patrick how did you make that play?

Mahomes- “I took the snap and threw the ball”

They likely are being advised by legal counsel not to comment further on it.

Broncos owner Pat Bowlen passed away @ 75 | RIP
Say Hello to Lamer Hunt, Al Davis & others

Shame on the Hall of Fame voters, Mr. B – should have been in the HOF (last year) before Jerry Jones. But, at least, Mr. B knew – he would be going in the HOF, this year -before he passed.

In 35 years of ownership – Mr. B brought Denver – 7 Super Bowl appearance & 3 Titles

He was far more deserving of the hall than that dipshit Jerry Jones. It dont take much investigating to see how much more he has done for NFL growth, but you know he didnt put himself out there like a jackass as much. So in this selfie and social media day in age ole Jerrah was voted in first. It is a shame.

Mahomes isn’t throwing int’s he is teaching the cornerbacks how to catch.

Anthony Stratton

Okafor at corner? Bold, Spags.

Lol. On the first defensive snap of the first preseason game, Spags should have both DE’s drop into two deep zones just to screw with us all.

How is butker contract compared to other kickers around the league? Cheap? Exspensive? Average?

Tied for 8th highest. Seems fair

Anthony Stratton

Yeah sounds like a lotta money at 1st, but in context its not bad.

I come here for Chiefs!

Find out the Rapture win the championship from the tweets. That’s about how much I followed the NBA.

Back to Chiefs!

If I had known. it was the Rapture I would have stayed up for the end of it. Probably better this way. The stress would have been godawful

Pat Bowlin always seemed like a classy guy despite owning the Donkeys. Now the knife fight for control of the team begins in earnest.
