Kansas City losses dropping demand and prices for Chiefs tickets

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City Chiefs are not the only ones paying for their losing season. Ticket brokers in the metro have said sales have dropped dramatically in the last two weeks.

The Chiefs have sunk to the bottom of the NFL, having lost three straight games in a row, and fans are starting to show their frustration with their wallets.

Ticket broker Hal Wagner claimed he had never seen sales this bad. According to Wagner, no game is pulling great interest. The Chiefs games against Oakland and Denver always bring in top dollar, but not this year.

Three weeks ago, Chiefs-Raiders tickets were selling for $99, but are now going for $39. Chiefs-Broncos tickets were selling for $119, but are now going for just $59.

Wagner said he has to find way to win, even when the team is not.

"If the price is so ridiculous, they will buy," Wagner said.

The Chiefs are staggering into their bye week. Sunday's 38-10 performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers dropped their record to 1-5.

It was the fourth blowout loss in six games, and came one week after tackle Eric Winston berated fans for cheering after quarterback Matt Cassel suffered a head injury.

Fans have told sports radio hosts they want coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli fired. The team will practice Monday through Wednesday before taking off the rest of the week.
