Good morning AG! Nothing to talk about history-wise, so to the news…

Chiefs’ Cornell Powell gaining trust of Patrick Mahomes at training camp | usatoday

The rookies have a few days with starting QB Patrick Mahomes before the veteran players arrive at training camp. Fifth-round draft pick Cornell Powell is looking to take advantage of this period by building up some more chemistry with the Chiefs’ star quarterback.

Chiefs rookie TE Noah Gray credits teammates for early development | usatoday

He’s impressed Chiefs HC Andy Reid and built a repertoire with star QB Patrick Mahomes, combining for a number of standout moments during team drills at practice. The former Duke Blue Devil isn’t taking much credit for his offseason success, though. He first noted that having Organized Team Activities (OTAs) made all the difference in the world — a luxury that last year’s rookies didn’t have.

Chiefs CB DeAndre Baker close to 100% healthy, out to prove he belongs in Kansas City | usatoday

It was his first on-field action since suffering the season-ending injury, allowing him to gain some confidence prior to the arrival of veteran players on Monday. Speaking with reporters on Sunday, Baker revealed that he’s feeling near full-strength heading into training camp.

The face of the Green Bay Packers franchise and the reigning NFL MVP, quarterback Aaron Rodgers, has said he will no longer play for that team.

Chiefs DB Juan Thornhill admits he was never 100% in return from knee injury | yahoo

https://sports.yahoo.com/chiefs-db-juan-thornhill-admits-184734537.html

Thornhill would typically report to training camp with the veterans on Monday, but Thornhill joined the injured players, reporting to camp a few days early. This is not because of a new injury suffered late in the season or during the offseason. This is because Thornhill was still struggling late into last season with his knee injury suffered in Week 17 of the 2019 NFL season.

Just thinking out loud here. If the Chiefs feel pressured to change their name, they could just make the Arrowhead on the helmet a circle & keep the exact same KC logo in the center & it would still look pretty cool.
They could rename themselves the Kansas City Strips. Or the Kansas City Reds. Or the Kansas City Coronets (for the jazz history KC is famous for) or the KC Fountains.

Mind you, I’m not advocating any of this. I’m
just not gonna get turned inside out when it inevitably happens. I also don’t want them to take 2 years to ‘focus group’ some name that we all know will likely suck ass like Washington is currently doing. Though ‘KCFC’ doesn’t actually sound all that bad. I like it more than the Cleveland Guardians.
I’m prepared for the downvotes.

I don’t get why they should have to change their name. It’s a title of nobility. If they’re forced to, me going to be pissed off.

This is where Im at. If it comes to it get rid of the Arrowhead and all native american imagery. I thought it was really dumb when they added the drum deck.

The arrowhead is like “Chiefs”; it’s not a symbol of Native Americans since 100% of every human alive has ancestors that used stone arrow and spear heads.

I could deal with dropping the Native American stuff and keep the Chiefs name and logo.

Oh, I doubt they’ll ever be FORCED to. But they may decide to do it just to get away from all the negative publicity.
I personally don’t think Chiefs is a derogatory term. Not at all. I’m just trying to be pragmatic about the situation.
I only wrote the original post because I’d been going through that joke twitter & was seeing how idiotic people can be about this kind of thing.
I explained to probably 10 people on Twitter that mayor H. Roe Bartle was the original name for the Chiefs, since that was his nickname & since he was instrumental in getting the (different named) Texans to KC, the team was named in his honor. I even had a guy try to tell me that KC Wolf was disrespectful to indigenous peoples, as the Wolf was sacred to some tribes. To which I replied that most animals were sacred to one tribe or another & that KC Wolf looked like a goddamned raccoon if he looked like anything.
It just got me thinking about the way things were going. But I’ve never really understood getting upset over a name change. I’d root for the team regardless of what they’re called. Their name is the least important thing to me, by far. I’ve never even really liked the name. I don’t hate it, I just think it’s kinda ‘meh.’ And I’ve always been sad that Lamar didn’t get the original team colors he wanted, which were the Houston Oilers light blue & red. That would’ve been awesome. I root for this team because it represents my home town & I’m invested in the players & coaches and I want to see them succeed. Not their name or logos. Because they represent my hometown I want the team to reflect on KC as best as possible, which is why if they decided to change the name I wouldn’t flip out about it.

More ammo for your twitter arguments: ALL people come from tribal systems if you go back far enough. ALL people’s ancestors used stone arrow and spear heads.

The US Navy has Chiefs, Senior Chiefs, and Master Chiefs. News outlets have Chief Correspondents. Police have Chief of Police. The company I work for has a Chief Financial Officer.

There is NOTHING wrong with “Chiefs” or the arrowhead symbology.

I don’t think our name offends most Native Americans. We have them bless the field, bang the drum, and stand in honor.

I have actually seen members of the tribes do the chop.

Teams can’t worry about offending the whiniest 1% because there will always be something to whine about.

I don’t think the name does either. I worry more about outside pressure from people who get offended in behalf of others.
I argued with a guy who told me Chief was a Native American term. I explained that Chief was a European word that we used to call denote individuals who were in charge, hence why someone at the head of a tribe was then called the Chief.
He said name white person who has the title of Chief. I explained what a Chief of police was, then told him all about our Commander-in-Chief…
It’s amazing how much idiocy is flying around out there.

Haha, I just saw it. I wish I would’ve recalled the navy’s use of Chiefs. Being former army, you’d think I would’ve remembered that (I even forgot Chief Warrant Officer!)
I know all of us here understand the word & the use of the arrowhead.
I just think that once folks get in a frenzy, it becomes almost impossible to have any kind of effective dialogue with them.

I’m Cherokee and think we’re good on all of the recent changes. I have no arguments with the way the Chiefs have done it. I’ll miss Warpaint. I though that was always a great custom!

What’s the NFL’s response if the majority of infected players are vaccinated? Given that all the testing and monitoring I’ve done for the Army this summer has shown that over 60% of positives were already vaccinated.

The player that are vaccinated can go back to regular activities after (I believe) 24 hrs. From what I remember, they also don’t have to quarantine.
It’s probably better to read the memo the NFL put out regarding positive tests among vaccinated players. That way you’re not basing any future thoughts or decisions on my incredibly faulty memory. That gets done way too often nowadays, though I’m positive us AG’ers are far too intelligent to fall into such a facile trap.

But 99% of deaths are non-vaccinated. Guess it’s working.

I’m going to go ahead and assume that you only follow US stats with your statement. That percentage changes drastically when you go beyond the US. For example, in Britain 64% of recent deaths were vaccinated.

So you’re working the the British Army? No? Then my statement stands. I live in the US, so yes, I pay more attention to the stats for the US. . But since you wish to try to discredit vaccines with numbers. the vaccination rate in Britain is 66.2% compared with a paltry 56% here. So there are far more people there who have done the right thing. And that “64%” you made up is out of 117 deaths. 117. Oh, and the % in Britain is somewhere between 59-62%, so please get your numbers straight.
