On Wednesday, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs celebrated their most recent Super Bowl victory. When the champions marched to the rhythm of their own drum, the drinks flowed and confetti showered on them.
Last week, Mahomes and the boys partied a lot. The two-time Super Bowl MVP was seen walking away after accidentally handing the Vince Lombardi Trophy to a fan. Fortunately, it turned out that the trophy was a replica. Tom Brady, who drank the avocado tequila at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Super Bowl celebration in 2021, praised the action.
Fans who wrote in expressed their disappointment with the beer-drinking celebration in a series of letters to the editor that were published in the Kansas City Star on Sunday. Andy Reid shouldn’t have permitted that to happen, according to one commenter.
“The fundamental justification for this is that a Chief who is intoxicated is not a good example for young admirers who are there to see their idols. Second, even the older spectators don’t want to witness inebriated athletes at this significant event. Third, fatal events occur when alcohol is involved “the writer wrote.
“Several Chiefs boasted on social media about how inebriated they were after the game. I feel bad for the players I supported since they could hardly move after getting off the bus. This show undoubtedly generated attention in other cities.”
Former NFL beat writer says AARON RODGERS has the Packers “disgusted.”
Another person objected to the message that it might be conveying to young fans.
“If there is a victory parade in the future, kindly consume your booze in secret and subtly. Young people who are impressive need better role models than what you’ve shown them twice.”
Another Chiefs supporter objected to the tomahawk chop. An activist who is Native American expressed worry about it in an opinion piece that was published just before the game.
When announcer Mitch Holthus stepped onstage with the players and insisted that everyone partake in the “Arrowhead chop” to conclude the celebration, the person stated, “I was terribly humiliated for my city and the Chiefs organization.”
“The Chiefs ought to do all in their power to safeguard their fantastic reputation by doing away with the chop. The indications on Wednesday, though, were that they continue to vigorously promote it.”
It is obvious that the Chiefs cannot please everyone, but given that Kansas City is well-equipped for future championship campaigns, there will certainly be more opportunity for whining.
