Self: Give up 'home of Chiefs' during anthem
November 25, 2013
By The Associated Press
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Kansas coach Bill Self wants fans to quit yelling ''Chiefs'' at the end of the national anthem before games that the Jayhawks play at historic Allen Fieldhouse.
Fans of the nearby NFL franchise traditionally bellow ''Chiefs'' rather than ''brave,'' the final word in the national anthem, before games played at Arrowhead Stadium. But for some reason, many do the same thing before games played in other area venues.
Among them are Allen Fieldhouse and Kauffman Stadium, the home of the Royals.
Self said Monday that ''out of respect for what it really stands for and the men and women that have sacrificed so much, I think that we should stay true to what it is.''
Other local coaches have made similar pleas over the years.
