REMEMBERING OUR FOUNDER The National Football League and the American sports community lost a true treasure on December 13, 2006 when Chiefs Founder Lamar Hunt passed away. Hunt served as the guiding force behind the formation of both the American Football League and the Kansas City Chiefs franchise. Few individuals helped change the face of America s favorite game for the better than this quiet Texan. Hunt played a key role in the AFL-NFL merger talks in the 60s and actually coined the term Super Bowl. As part of a permanent tribute to Hunt on Kansas City s uniform, the Chiefs will continue to wear a commemorative patch that prominently features the American Football League logo to serve as a reminder of Hunt s formation of the AFL and the lasting impact that league has made on the game of professional football. True to Hunt s humble styles, the letters LH are subtly displayed on the football of the AFL logo, symbolizing the fact that the Chiefs Founder always put the best interests of the league ahead of his own. The patch is be affixed to the left chest of both Kansas City s home and road jerseys, meaning this piece of woven symbolism will be worn over the heart of every Chiefs player. CHIEFS IN OVERTIME KC played one overtime contest in 2007, losing at the N.Y. Jets (12/30). Including the postseason, the Chiefs are all-time in overtime contests.
