Chiefs fans are not happy about playing a home game in London

Thursday November 6th, 2014

The NFL announced the games for the 2015 installment of its International Series on Thursday, including a game between the Detroit Lions and the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 1, at which the Chiefs will be the nominal "home team."

When Kansas City fans found out about this, they were not very happy.

To make matters worse, Arrowhead Stadium recently received a massive renovation courtesy of the taxpayers.

The designated home team in London games has traditionally been a team with poor home attendance, which is not the case for Kansas City.

The negative reaction from the team's fans has apparently already reached the top of the team's front office, as CEO Clark Hunt will not be speaking with reporters about the London game on Thursday.

Hunt may be the most upset of everyone, as Kansas City's London date with Detroit is one less day he gets to spend in the stadium's luxurious owner's suite.
