One U.S. State Is Now TRYING Their HARDEST To POACH The Kansas City Chiefs From Missouri-O

Could you imagine Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes tossing 4 four touchdowns in a game and then pumping up the home crowd that not only isn’t at Arrowhead Stadium but not even in Missouri?

Another state would love to have the Kansas City Chiefs, and it is doing everything possible to make it happen.

This week, Kansas lawmakers approved a bipartisan plan to help the Kansas City Chiefs build a new stadium, not in Missouri, but in Kansas.

Kansas legislators approved a sneaky plan to lure the Chiefs and the Kansas City Royals away from Missouri by passing a measure to authorize state bonds to help finance new stadiums and practice facilities for both teams.

The bill that was passed by the Republican-controlled Legislature would allow Kansas to issue bonds to cover up to 70% of the costs of a new stadium and pay them off over 30 years with revenues from sports betting, state lottery ticket sales, and new sales and alcohol taxes from the districts built around the new stadiums.

Governor Laura Kelly released a statement on the passing of that measure, via ESPN:


“I pledged to work with members of both parties on policies that are beneficial to Kansas,” she said. “The bipartisan effort to invite the Chiefs and Royals to Kansas shows we’re all-in on keeping our beloved teams in the Kansas City metro.

“Kansas now has the opportunity to become a professional sports powerhouse with the Chiefs and Royals potentially joining Sporting KC as major league attractions, all with robust, revenue-generating entertainment districts surrounding them providing new jobs, new visitors, and new revenues that boost the Kansas economy.”

 

Dallas Mayor Pushes For Kansas City Chiefs To Come Back To Texas

Dallas mayor Eric Johnson was the first to express his desire for the Chiefs to return to Texas.

Earlier this year, Jackson County, Missouri, voters rejected the extension of a sales tax to help pay for the renovation of Arrowhead Stadium, so Johnson courted the team back to Dallas.

After the vote, Johnson posted on social media, “Welcome home, Dallas Texans!”

Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt, who lives in Dallas, previously revealed the team is looking at new options once the Arrowhead Stadium lease expires in 2030.

According to Lukas Weese of TheAthletic.com, Johnson called it a “serious opportunity” for the Chiefs to solve their stadium situation.

Kansas City Chiefs Player Arrested For Second Time This Offseason, Mugshot Released

The Kansas City Chiefs’ wild offseason is showing no signs of slowing down, as one of their players has been arrested for the second time amid the break.

ProFootballTalk has confirmed that Chiefs defensive end Isaiah Buggs has been arrested and is facing charges of second-degree domestic violence and burglary. Their report follows the Tuscaloosa Patch’s Ryan Phillips tweeting as much along with a mugshot photo.

“Tuscaloosa County Jail records show former Tide defensive lineman and Kansas City Chief Isaiah Buggs was arrested for burglary on Sunday,” Phillips noted.

“PFT has confirmed that defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs has been arrested, again,” ProFootballTalk has also reported. “This time, he’s charged with domestic violence/burglary. (Ryan Phillips of Tuscaloosa Patch had it first, as best we can tell.)

“Court records show a $5,000 bond. It’s not clear whether he has been released from custody.”

The Kansas City Chiefs DE Had Already Been Arrested This Offseason

As mentioned above, Isaiah Buggs has already had a brush with the law this offseason.

The defensive player was charged with misdemeanors in an animal cruelty case last month. His attorney declared that the charges were part of a harassment campaign as authorities are trying to force Buggs to shut down a hookah lounge he owns in Tuscaloosa.

Buggs was drafted out of the sixth round by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2019. He had stints with the Las Vegas Raiders and Detroit Lions before signing for the Chiefs practice squad in January and going on to earn a Super Bowl ring.

He has since been signed to their 90-man roster.
