Big Day for the Chiefs; New Hunt Statue to Be Unveiled

A big day for the Chiefs will start with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell at their new Founder’s Plaza in Arrowhead Stadium on Friday morning and wind up with the first workout at their gleaming new practice facility in St. Joseph, Mo. Goodell will be on hand at the Founder’s Plaza when a nine-foot statue is unveiled of the late Lamar Hunt, founder of the Chiefs and the American Football League.

Coach Todd Haley will begin practice a few hours later in the team’s new facility in St. Joseph. It will be the first time in 20 years the Chiefs have not camped in River Falls, Wis., and mark the beginning of what Kansas City fans hope will be a sharp upward turn following three dreary losing seasons. An air of optimism still surrounds the Chiefs, who have won only 10 games the past three years but made significant additions during the offseason. “I believe we’re getting better,” said Haley, who was 4-12 in his first season after replacing the fired Herm Edwards.
