I remember when PM15 showed up on a social media video clip playing a pickup game (albeit, it looked more spirited than this) and not only did a lot of fans shout-out that Mahomes shouldn’t be risking an injury playing an unnecessary sport activity, but Veach apparently followed it up with a firm dictate that Mahomes should retire from basketball.

I guess the slow playing pace apparent in this brief clip has not led to the same feedback from fans or front office (as far as I know). Just thought it ironic that we don’t seem to be too worried about CJ risking a non-football sports injury. We do more than just kinda need a healthy CJ in a couple months.

I don’t think the Chiefs have a “weak position group” anywhere … esp when you factor in depth, and coaching, and “player mentoring” (culture)

I doubt it was here, but somewhere on the net I came across a conversation questioning if the Canadian “aboot” was even a thing anymore, and I disagree. I live about 100 miles from the border by road, though less straight line, sigh*. Plenty of folks around here say it that way, and very few of them actual Canadians. But ties to Canada are common among families with ties across the border.

What they miss are two things, I think. The first is that they’re actually thinking about the comedy pronunciation, which is exaggerated for the purpose. The other’s that in real life, it’s actually rather subtle, though still audible. Doubt anyone recalls, but I have written a thing or two about the strangeness of the mechanics of its pronunciation, and how to get it right, you need to hold your tongue as if you were saying a-boat, and I can literally verify the difference. That’s part of why it’s actually muted, so I question conclusions saying it’s faded away.

*See? I’m still BRaG, and thus gripe that my estimate places me in the CBP’s Constitution-Free Zone, which isn’t just real, if you live that close to an international airport, it applies to you, too. You can deny it, but you cannot disprove it.

Chargers at Chiefs may be the 1st game to catch that will be reasonably priced.

1st game will be expensive because the banner drop.

2nd home game will have high prices because the Chicago fans will pay extra to come to Arrowhead.

3rd home game is Thursday night against the Broncos.

And while there is such a thing as Chargers fans, they’re rather thin on the ground, especially at away games. Major factor.

https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/former-st-johns-coach-mike-anderson-seeks-45-6-million-in-lawsuit-after-school-hired-rick-pitino/

Former St. John’s coach Mike Anderson is seeking $45.6 million from his former employer after he says he was fired without cause in March, Anderson’s lawyer told ESPN. Anderson claims St. John’s avoided paying his buyout, then used the money to hire former Iona and Louisville coach Rick Pitino. 
After Anderson won Big East Coach of the Year in 2021, he was rewarded with a six-year contract extension that lasted through the 2026-27 season. He is seeking the $11.4 million that remained on his contract and an additional $34.2 million for “punitive damages”, according to documents obtained by ESPN.

What needs to be said here? Yes the Chiefs are involved in a lot of our top five. They beat everyone and they finally took out Joe Burrow. Burrow is a Mount Rushmore Revenge Guy and no one knows it yet because he hasn’t really ever lost. Burrow doesn’t say a word but if you see Burrow and somehow don’t see a player eager to avenge a loss very quickly, you’re seeing things in an incorrect prism. Patrick Mahomes also didn’t love everyone pointing out how many times he lost to Burrow. This is a statement game for both of these elite quarterbacks.

Mahomes, Burrow, Allen, Herbert, Lawrence, Hurts … all are pretty good, all are competitive … but the narrative is wrong, because Burrow HAS really lost (to Mahomes, last season playoffs)

in fact, all those those dues lost to Mahomes last season, so there ya go 😁
