"Baseball owners were more interested in a settlement than changing the system. There's nothing in the agreement that requires owners to reinvest shared revenue. What that means for Kansas City fans is more Wal-Marts and fewer wins." -- Tom Shatel, columnist, Omaha World Herald
"If you want to say the Chiefs' draft picks are awful and the Raiders' are wonderful, well, you have that right. But before doing so, you might want to take the advice of French satirist François Reblais, who said: 'If you wish to avoid sounding like a fool, first listen to some of your past commentary.' That should surely cure you quick." -- Rufus Dawes, incognito columnist, kcchiefs.com
GH: Rufus should first listen to the immortal words of John "Bluto" Blutarski: "Seven years of college down the drain."
"[Dick Vermeil] isn't working hard enough to get burned out. The Friday before the Chiefs' first game last year, I'm eating some dinner at the Baja 600 ... and I look over, and there's Vermeil and his wife and another couple. A bottle of wine came, and another bottle of wine came and another bottle of wine came. He was hanging out for three hours down there on the Plaza. I don't think he grinds anything like he used to. I'm okay with that; I just think Chiefs fans ought to know exactly what they got. What they don't have is Jon Gruden. You don't have the hardest-working man in the business." -- Kevin Kietzman, WHB 810
"The Jacksonville Jaguars are going to be no better than a high-school football team." -- Bob Glauber, NFL columnist for New York Newsday, on the Chiefs' opponent for the home opener Sunday, 980 KMBZ
"This [Chiefs'] offense is better than the [Patriots'] offense that won the Super Bowl last year." -- Kietzman, 810
"I was all ready to say that this Chiefs team is going to be an improved football team, but I was out there [at training camp] when they scrimmaged the Vikings, and I just don't see it." -- Glauber, 980
"Everybody I've talked to wants to dump their [Chiefs] season tickets. Seriously." -- Jason Whitlock, 810
