Kansas City Chiefs deny naming-rights rumors, say they weren’t planning to fire Todd Haley

  • The Chiefs say it’s still Arrowhead.

Calm down, everybody. Fears that Chiefs fans would soon be headed to Google Arrowhead Stadium or Wal-Mart Field are unwarranted, the team says. This morning, blogger and former sideline reporter Bob Gretz sent Chiefs devotees into a panic by reporting that an unnamed source within the team told him that a naming deal was imminent.

Gretz wrote: “Word is that an announcement will likely come in conjunction with the Monday night game against San Diego on Halloween. No leaks on the name of the company involved, but the word is that it’s a national name, not local, and that this company has not previously been involved in buying naming rights to sports facilities. I’ve been told it will be a very familiar name, one that fans won’t have to use Goggle to discover what that company does.”

No Google necessary! This, the team says, is utter nonsense.
