Good morning AG! Nothing much in the history file, so on to the news…

Orlando Brown Jr. on the Chiefs’ Rebuilt Offensive Line: “It’s Time to Prove It” | chiefs.com

https://www.chiefs.com/news/orlando-brown-jr-on-the-chiefs-rebuilt-offensive-line-it-s-time-to-prove-it

“I’m excited, man. One of my favorite parts of football isn’t necessarily just wearing the helmet, but the shoulder pads, too,” Brown said. “Once we get the shoulder pads on, things will get rocking. That’s when the real ball players come out and that’s what I’m looking forward to.”

Virtue Signaling Chiefs: Kansas City Halts Indian-themed Warpaint Tradition | newsbusters

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/culture/jay-maxson/2021/07/27/virtue-signaling-chiefs-kansas-city-halts-indian-themed

Warpaint, the Kansas City Chiefs long-time pony mascot, has been deemed politically incorrect, booted out of the ball game and her official web page has been removed. She’s the latest victim of the purging of Indian nicknames and traditions amid the woke madness that’s ruining pro sports.

A sorrel tobiano mare, Warpaint ignited the fans by galloping on the field at the start of the Chiefs’ home games and after the team’s touchdowns. Her rider was dressed in Native American attire. The tradition first began in 1955, and after a long lapse, Warpaint returned in 2009 and resumed the Chiefs’ tradition.

Just a thought…

Native Americans DID NOT have horses until Europeans brought them here. Neither Warpaint or the blonde lady appear to wear anything that could be construed as Native American. I think we have to draw a line somewhere. Get rid of the Native stuff since they feel it dishonors them in some way and move on forever.

Please, tell me how this has anything at all to do with Native Americans.

It’s the horse’s history and name. Was previously ridden by a guy in full head dress and outfit. As Warpaint is today, a name change could do it, but horse ain’t cheap, so likely factored in to the decision

So about actual football.

Brown-Thuney-Creed-Smith-Remmers

Odd men out: Blythe, Niang, and LDT.

I wouldnt feel too bad if I was Niang. Still time to make an impression and we need a backup OT no matter what.

Similar with Blythe, seems like a lock to be backup C/G.

So 7 total. Dont they usually keep 8? LDT doesnt seem versatile at all. Kyle Long is versatile but hurt again and I exoect him to be cut. What about Allegreti?

Eight is a typical number, but I bet they keep at least nine on the 53 this year. Wouldn’t be surprised if they kept ten, since they seem to have overkill in mind with the Oline. I think they kept nine most of last year.

I truly believe that as soon as Schwartz thinks he is healed up, he will be back with KC on a “prove it” deal. Niang will be the swing tackle. I think LDT and Blythe make it, unless Allegretti beats one of them out. I think Wylie and Long battle for the utility OL spot, so I’m expecting them to keep 9. If/when Mitch comes back, I think Remmers is battling with Wylie and Long.

Yeah. “Don’t need him at all” would be an understatement, but probably closer to the truth than what Matt Miller emoted.

The tradition first began in 1955, and after a long lapse, Warpaint returned in 2009 and resumed the Chiefs’ tradition.”
So this is old news, then? I don’t remember the Me First crowd crying about her getting cancelled last time. Guess they are bored by the off season and need something to rally the troops. The Chiefs could have kept her by just changing the name, but then we’d have to listen to the Me Firsters whine about how “she’ll always be Warpaint!”, and God knows we don’t want to listen that THAT again. So, she goes.
The Chiefs are trying to get out in front of the issue and preserve the name, do the little things to show they are listening and aware, but you guys just won’t let them. But then, this isn’t really about the Chiefs to you, is it?
Did you know New Amsterdam is now New York? Over that, yet?

My, someone who quotes an article that says the tradition started 5 years before the AFL did & 8 before the Chiefs became a thing as if it has any validity woke up willfully ignorant today.
If the name changes, and you’re looking for someone to be mad at, have your mirror handy. It’s going to be giving away the little things that will keep the big thing. And you are not willing to do that. Thankfully, the Chiefs organization can see what really matters even if their fans can’t.

You still get four stars for making the effort to post this every day.

Their ultimate goal is to stroke off their own emotions by trying to exert power over others. They’re bullies.

They constantly achieve their ultimate goal every time they attempt to stand over somebody else.

These types will take the easiest path to making somebody else do what they want. They don’t care about politics, they’ll just glom on to whatever makes them feel the most powerful at the moment. They don’t even really care what they make other people do, just as long as they feel like they’re making other people do something.

Those bad people aren’t really the real problem, though. Because there’s not actually very many of them, and because they tend to be wimps when pushed back on. The real problem is all the regular people who get fooled or intimidated by them and end up being their shields and their tools.

Ha, I’m actually old enough to remember when most of the wannabe tyrants actually were “conservatives.”

I used to think that type of character always associated with Republicans, back when I hadn’t lived long enough to see them anywhere else yet. But nope, they just jump around to wherever they can feel like they have the best opportunity to get the upper hand over other people.

When a lot of these assholes associate themselves with conservative politics, then you get violent reactions to differences, like the Joe McCarthy witch hunts. And when they associate themselves with liberal politics, then you get stifling socialism like Cuba.

Their politics go in cycles. But the assholes are always the same.

That’s exactly why we have a two party system. They wrestle each other, back and forth, back and forth, which keeps the extremists from being less likely to take complete power, and keeps our laws relatively toward the middle of the spectrum.

Yeah, but we’re getting more and more problems with career politicians. Which is something that the founding fathers probably didn’t really anticipate the extent of, because all of them had jobs. Mostly farmers. Back then, it would’ve been hard to imagine somebody being able to make more money as a legislator than as a farmer.

Career politicians don’t really care which party they’re in. They are pretty much the same as those assholes I was ranting about.

I think we could make a big huge difference for the better if we had more term limits. MO’s legislature fought term limits tooth and nail for years, but ever since they finally passed it’s been a whole lot better in general, especially with lower levels of corruption.

I remember reading an article a while back about how the problems with Congress were because there weren’t as many farmers and soldiers in it anymore, and a lot more lawyers instead. That was back sometime in the 90s, I think. Today, I think the problem might have become that professional politicians are replacing the lawyers in Congress, and they’re even worse for the country than the lawyers were.

Honestly think the biggest reason the Indians name went bye bye was the fans relutance to let go of Chief Wahoo.

As somebody who grew up watching the chiefs in the 90s, I could give 2 shits about warpaint. I think the only reason they brought it back was because the Donkey’s horse Thunder was so popular.

If they want to bring back something I care about, lets start with KC wolf beating up the opposing teams mascot. Now he just comes out and waves, hes venturing towards Rockies mascot Dinger lame. Next thing would be the TD song. Fuck Gary Gliiter WE’RE GOING TO BEAT THE HELL OUT OF YOU… YOU…YOU YOU YOU

So Long was a long shot, to begin with. Hopefully, he and the Chiefs are going to play the long game with him. That way he might be available to step in when someone gets hurt later in the year. I wonder how long the ods are that he was going to start anyway?

On a glorious day in 1975, however, the Chiefs hung a 42-10 shellacking on the Raiders. After each touchdown, the Chiefs live horse mascot — WarPaint — would circle the field after each touchdown scored. Raiders coach John Madden would later sarcastically quip, “We couldn’t beat the Chiefs, but we damn near killed their horse.“
