KANSAS CITY, Mo. - There's renewed controversy surrounding a long-standing tradition at Arrowhead and it has nothing to do with the game.
Arrowhead is home of the Chiefs but a Facebook group started a mission to change the lyrics of the National Anthem sung at the stadium.
Fans started cheering "Chiefs" instead of "brave" back in the 90's.
Now the group wants fans to spend some time cheering on the brave before spending the game cheering on the Chiefs.
The organizers of the group said they want to remain anonymous because they want the change to be about their message not about them.
One administrator of the group said," Do I want to tell anybody what to do? No. But I've had people on the page say you know what, I've yelled for it for years, I see your point, I think this makes sense."
And this has hundreds talking.
Mike Aciego commented on our Facebook page, "I’m a veteran of the United States Air Force and it makes my stomach hurt when I hear these yahoos say home of the Chiefs instead of home of the brave, very disrespectful.”
But others like Jim McCoy said, "I served 20 years in the military and I do not take any offense to this whatsoever. I've seen numerous pre-game and halftime activities at Arrowhead that show great patriotism."
The creators say they just want Chiefs fans to reconsider next time they sing the national anthem at Arrowhead.
Adding "We don't think that Chiefs fans do this to take a shot at military or have any ill intent at all. We just believe that with the changing of the times since 9-11 it may be time to look at it again."
