The Kansas City Chiefs are a team that has a fan base that will travel heavily to any road game to try and make it a home game for their beloved team.
Such was the case on Saturday when the fan base showed up to Las Vegas and turned Allegiant Stadium into Arrowhead Stadium 2.0.
According to NFL insider Jason Cole, the Raiders’ owner is becoming frustrated over scenes just as this one today. Much like in Oakland, opposing fan bases seem to take up more seats than the actual fan base and Mark Davis is getting tired of it.
“[There is] belief among many that Raiders owner Mark Davis is growing increasingly impatient in his effort to rebuild the legacy of the team his Hall of Fame father built into a champion,” Cole reported this week for Outkick. “Moreover, Davis’ angst is growing. Allegiant Stadium continues to be more of a friendly home for visiting fans than the great home field it was for years in Oakland.”
“Mark is embarrassed,” a former Raiders executive told Cole. “He was pissed last year when the Chiefs and Bears brought so many fans to town. Now it’s happening every week.”
Even Raiders fans are becoming frustrated as one fan said that Davis threatened to have him removed from the stadium for displaying a sign that read “Fire McDaniels, Keep Carr.”
When the Raiders were bad in Oakland, opposing fans weren’t piling into the Oakland Coliseum. Las Vegas is a whole different animal as you have many people from different parts of the country in town every single day.
Not many of the locals take their talents to the strip, and it looks like they are adding Allegiant Stadium to that list.
If the team gets to a point where they start winning more, the home fans will show up. For now, this might be reality for some time.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
