The first-ever Madden 17 Club Series Championship held over the weekend certainly lived up to the hype. Fans from around the country tuned in to watch as the eight winners from the Bills, Steelers, Jaguars, Vikings, Chiefs, 49ers, Patriots and Seahawks tournaments took the national stage for a chance to advance to the final round.
David Katz “Bread” who represented the Bills in the match put on quite a performance against Pittsburgh’s “Misery” in the quarterfinals. Although he was not able to come away with the victory, Katz’s play earned him $2,500 and 175 series points.
The winner of the championship, Seattle’s “Killer Mike” battled San Francisco’s “Monsta” in the exciting finale. With the win, “Killer Mike” took home $10,000, 350 series points and earned a place in the Madden 17 Championship that will take place later this month.

It’s a story that may be getting blown out of proportion, but reports out of Kansas City indicate that if construction workers, that are doing major renovations on Arrowhead stadium, go on strike at the end of March when their contract is up, the stadium will not be ready in time to host Chiefs home games and that the possibility would exist that the Chiefs would have to play all of their 2009 regular season games on the road. That according to Fox4KC in Kansas City.
The Bills are one of Kansas City’s scheduled home dates this year, so if the Chiefs are thrust into the worst case scenario they could be coming to Buffalo instead of hosting the Bills.
In this economy I can’t see a labor dispute lasting very long. Nobody wants to be out of work right now, but that would certainly put the NFL’s league offices in a quandary as to the best solution to that problem.
If the worst case scenario did present itself and the Chiefs could not play at Arrowhead, I would think they’d make an arrangement with Kansas State, Kansas University or the University of Missouri to play their home games in one of those college stadiums before going on the road for 16 games.
The Chicago Bears did that back in 2002 when they played their entire home schedule at the University of Illinois in Champaign while their stadium was undergoing renovations.

Starting MLB and leading tackler Pat Thomas and fellow starter LB Donnie Edwards are both out for Kansas City today as is starting right guard Adrian Jones.
Veteran interior lineman Wade Smith is expected to start at RG in place of Jones. DeMorrio Williams will start for Edwards and it’s expected that either Rocky Boiman will start at MLB or Derrick Johnson will move inside to play MLB with Boiman starting at OLB.
