I don’t know if I’m more upset with the Chiefs for their selfishly greedy handling of the price increase for Club Level season ticket holders, or The Star for not moving faster to put all season-ticket holders on notice (2/16, Sports Daily, “Ticket plan riles Chiefs fans; Team gives club-level holders 10 days to decide on major price increase”).
My father transferred two tickets to me when he became too elderly to attend the games. They have been in my family for 41 years. They have been a source of some great moments in Kansas City football and they have been a source of unforgettable family memories.
Every year the Chiefs send us a letter that talks about the family of Chiefs fans and how important we are to the organization.
This isn’t how functional families work.
Those on the Club Level have paid dearly for little more than a shorter line for the women’s restroom. We are due more courtesy, recognition and respect. We should be given more than 10 days to make a five-year commitment that reflects a large portion of our entertainment dollars.
Since all season ticket holders will be benefiting from the stadium improvements, why aren’t all being asked for a five-year commitment?
I expected more from Clark Hunt.
