"Loren G. 'Sam' Lickteig passed away on Nov. 14, 2012 of complications from MS and heartbreaking disappointment caused by the Kansas City Chiefs football team."
Mr. Lickteig served in the Air Force and has a large, loving family. And apparently his last dying wish was to give the Chiefs some grief.
The blackout was done as a public show to inspire change in Chiefs leadership, and the movement will continue the rest of the season.
We'd also like to think that all of the fans were mourning Sam Lickteig.
In theory, they were mourning the football organization.
