The thousands of Chiefs fans visiting our city and attending the AFC playoff game made a mockery of our national anthem by screaming “home of the Chiefs” instead of “home of the brave,” the way it was written.
This may be “tradition” in Kansas City, but in Indianapolis it is disrespectful and disgraceful. Turning our nation’s anthem into a team chant, especially while Colts were honoring members of our military on the field, turns my stomach.
Chief fans, shame on you.
P.S. How about that Larry Johnson!

I thought some Chiefs fans were very “bush league” in their actions during the national anthem at the Colts game Saturday. On the field were men and women from all branches of the military. When we sang “...and the home of the brave,” your fans yelled “Chiefs” instead.
Try to show some couth in the future.
Look it up if you don’t know what couth is.
