Delighted you are here. It takes new infusion of people to keep this board alive. What would be great if you are willing to introduce yourselves. I will even start.

I am Wilkie I have been on this board a long time. Made some good friends here. I will be 70 years old in November. I am a retired attorney who goes back to Chiefs fan since 1965. I played football in high school and a year and a half in college at KU when they cut me. I went to Tulane stadium and saw the Chiefs win SBIV. I'm a vet served in USAF 1969 to 1973. 3 kids. 5 grandkids.

How about you?

I'm troyofoc from the scout board, chief fan from Orange County CA, raider land. Fan since I was a kid, the Derrick Thomas days. Fell in love with him and the defense back then. Been an Alex hater but I can say i like what I've seen so far this year. Really excited about PM15 but know this is not the year. Was a huge Dorsey fan (after pioli how can you not be). Hoping Veach has the same knack for finding talent as Dorsey and better at what Hunt didn't like. Thanks for the welcome.

Rumor has it that Mahomes was Veach's pick. Or rather that he was the one jumping up-and-down for him during his last college year before the draft. Hunt was Dorsey's guy, though.

I'm Lukas. I'm a Scout transplant. 37 y/o. Married 9 years. 1 stepson who's in the Airforce, deployed in Iraq. No grandkids yet, but I'm sure him and his wife will be bangin like jackrabbits when he gets home. Lifelong KC resident. Work in healthcare doing sleep studies. Trying to provide the land whales of the world with better sleep one cpap machine at a time.

 

My step-grandfather (who raised my father) was a trainer and equipment manager with the Chiefs during their glory years, and is is the Superbowl picture. My father and uncles ran around in the locker room after practices with all the greats. This is in my blood. I had no say in becoming a fan. When my father passed away at 49 from cancer we spread some of his ashes at Arrowhead while tailgaiting. It's that serious.

 

This is a link about my step-grandpa of whom I spoke earlier.

He who shall remain unnamed. A scourge upon mankind. He who missed three field goals any one of which would have tied the game.

for the new guys..great idea OBTW wIlkie...  I'm Oldtimer (OT) because at the time on the old Star Board It seemed  I was one of the few that remembered seeing games  at Municipal Stadium and most were Marty era fans. Dad & I took the Ward Parkway Buss's to the stadium. I sat in the old Milgram's Huddle Club at Municipal, Dad had seats in that same End Zone area and got to sit with him when Otis Taylor made that one handed catch in the corner endzone against the  RedSkins..OT about fell in my lap..greatest catch of all time IMHO. Anyhoo I'm 58 so not that old but do have lots of History. Family had season tickets for over 40 years until Pioli just  was more than we could stand and our family spread out all over the country.

 

 Welcome to all.. you guys really have injected some life into this place. I sincerely hope that you have found a new home.

I'm gochiefsgo. I was on the star board as well. Born in KC. First Chiefs game was at Arrowhead where I watched Walter Payton run all over the Chiefs. Greatest game I ever saw at Arrowhead was the wildcard win over the Steelers in 1993 when the great Joe Montana laced a line drive into the very teeth of the Steelers defense and hit Barnett in the back of the end zone. Arrowhead was insane that day. I post a lot on the game day threads usually. Die hard Chiefs fan please let them win a SB again before I suddenly keel over dead. That's about it.

Great topic. Also from scout.com, 33 years old living in Kirkland just outside Seattle. I was born in October of 1983 so only a few months after the Chiefs selected their last first round QB prior to Mahomes, so I might be cursed. Been a Chiefs fan since my early teens back when my father was stationed in Leavenworth. Then went to KU. I used to go to 2-3 games in Arrowhead every season but couldn't manage it in the last 2 years so hoping to make up for the lost time soon.

Patrick, 38, and I'm a financial advisor. Live outside of Madison, WI. with my wife of 14 years and two kids - 13 and 10. I've been watching the Chiefs for 20 years now and desperately want to see them hoist a Lombardi in my lifetime.
