KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -
For years, fans at Arrowhead Stadium roar "Chiefs" when the national anthem concludes.
But some believe it's desecrating the national anthem and disrespects members of the military. One group wants fans to return to the concluding lyrics penned by Francis Scott Key in 1814: "Home of the brave."
A group pushing for the return to the original lyrics has started an "Arrowhead Home of the Brave" Facebook page. The page administrators, who say they want to remain anonymous, said they aren't accusing anyone of being unpatriotic.
The group has asked for anonymity because they said they don't want anyone to claim they are seeking 15 minutes of fame. But they also admit it really riles up some fans mentioning the idea of dumping "Home of the Chiefs."
Some dispute the notion that changing the lyrics at sporting events is disrespectful to the troops.
"I think saying 'the Chiefs' is fine. I don't think it's disrespectful. It's fun, you are out there fired up for the crowd," said Debbie Riederer.
One veteran wrote on KCTV5's Facebook page that he doesn't believe it's disrespectful. He said fans have said "home of the Chiefs" for more than 25 years.
But Libby Rulo said the words shouldn't be changed to the Star Spangled Banner.
"Any service member or veteran that says it doesn't bother them is a disgrace," one veteran wrote.
