Will the Chiefs secure a victory in Tuesday’s stadium renovation vote?

The future of the Chiefs and Royals hangs in the balance as Jackson County, Missouri voters decide whether to approve a sales tax extension to fund renovations on their football and baseball stadiums. The polling is tight, with some fans assuming that the team may leave Kansas City if they don’t get their way.

However, history has shown that teams have no qualms about uprooting and moving to a new state if they don’t receive what they want. As seen with the Dallas Texans becoming the Kansas City Chiefs in the 1960s, teams have moved from one city to another when they couldn’t find what they needed.

Cities are often willing to offer more than what a team’s current hometown can, as seen with the Colts moving from Baltimore to Indianapolis and the Browns moving from Cleveland to Baltimore. More recently, the Raiders left Oakland for Las Vegas when they couldn’t get what they wanted in their current city.

Stadium politics can be harsh, and if a team’s current city is unwilling to meet their demands, another city will step in. If Kansas City refuses to meet the Chiefs’ requests, they may look to move to a city that will give them what they need. The first step is for voters to decide whether or not they are willing to give them what they want.
