Kevin Boss Has An Ignorant Opinion Of Raiders-Chiefs Rivalry

You’ve been warned, Kevin Boss.  Raider Nation had your back when you were a free agent and we were looking for someone to fill the void in the Black Hole following the departure of Zach Miller. But now you’re public enemy #1 in the Black Hole. We had no reason to hate on you other than the team you play for but now you’ve done it by running your mouth on the wrong subject.

Boss was barely in Oakland long enough to know which stop on the BART takes you directly into the Coliseum on Sundays and he hasn’t even been in Kansas City long enough to know what a Chiefs’ tailgate is like. Yet somehow he knows he’s on the better end of the Raiders-Chiefs rivalry and said so in an interview.

“I was in Oakland for such a short period of time that it wasn’t really something where I really understood the whole Chiefs-Raiders rivalry. I just know now that I’m on the better side of the rivalry. It’s been a great transition and it’s really been a blessing in disguise to have been moved on to greener pastures.”

So…let me get this straight. Dude knew nothing of the Raiders-Chiefs rivalry before becoming a Raider? Never mind that this cat grew up playing football on the West Coast. You’d assume at some point he would have seen or a Raiders-Chiefs game in his lifetime. Never mind that he hasn’t even played a game as a Chief yet. Somehow he already knows he’s on the “better side”.

For the record, Boss is likely going to be a blocking tight end in KC and nothing more. The Raiders gave him a chance to feature prominently in an offense that typically utilized the tight end position in a multitude of ways. He had his health issues but overall didn’t contribute much more than throwing a few big blocks and coming up with a couple of nice moments on special teams.

So now the backup tight end in Kanas City wants to run his mouth.

You’ve been warned, Boss. You know Raider Nation is loyal to a fault but all bets are off when you put on those enemy colors and call out the best fans in football. I’d say we’ll see you in the fall but nothing guarantees Boss will be either healthy enough to play or that he’ll get on the field for anything other than running downs.

    Come on man, you have to admit your organization has been the poster child for dysfunction for a long time. At least now you have somebody to run the ship, who knows what he’s doing.

    Best team in football? Give me a break. For crying out loud!Sdriously dude, you need a reality check.

  • Chris Shellcroft

     @KC_Fanactic69  I know reading isn’t emphasized in Missouri but I said best “fans” in football. Not team. But thanks for taking the time.

    Remember the good old days when the faiders could win more games in a season than they lost? Yeah it’s hard for me to remember that far back too.

     @chiefsfan3131 Not arguing that things have been great in Oakland but let’s be honest…it’s not like it was a big happy family in KC with all the Haley drama. Both Oakland and KC are in better places now. My issue is that Boss was in Oakland for one year and has been a Chief for all of two months. Let’s wait until camp starts before saying which situation is better. I remember every Chief fan banging the Haley drum when he got hired. Just sayin’…the proof is on the field and nowhere else.

     @tybme Remember what a Lombardi trophy looks like? Oh…right…of course you don’t. You’re a Chiefs fan. You don’t even remember how it feels to win a playoff game.

    I agree that Boss should’ve spent a year in the organization before making a comment like that. Agreed about Haley, he may be a decent OC but it is obvious being a head coach is too much for him. Too much of an egomaniac to let the coachs’ coach. It’s the reason why Weis wanted out after one year. And also the reason we have had 4 OC’s during his tenure(If ya count Haley twice).On a better note it seems that the players respond better to Crennel. We’llsee how this year turns out. Man it’s June and I’m ready for some football already!!

    How did Boss call out Raider fans? He made no mention of the fans, just that he’s “on the better side of the rivalry”, which could mean a lot of different things. Besides, wouldn’t you expect such a comment from a new employee to any organization? You’re not going to say that you left a superior place for where you’re at now, at least not in the beginning (especially when it isn’t true, haha). Anyway, this can all be sorted out on the field in a few months. Stop being a reactionary and chill out.
