You are about to read the most bizarre thing that relates to a sports team.

The Kansas City Chiefs have been pretty terrible this season. It took them half the season to play with a lead in a game and have only one win. Fans have turned on this team by going as far as flying banners over the stadium and wearing black at the game to send a message to the front office.

It appears it has now gone to another level in Kansas City.

According to obituaries section of the Kansas City Star, a man's death was caused by MS and "heartbreaking disappointment" from the Chiefs.

Loren G. "Sam" Lickteig passed away on Nov. 14, 2012 of reported complications from MS and heartbreaking disappointment caused by the Kansas City Chiefs football team.

We're unsure if Lickteig took the Chiefs that seriously or if his family was bringing light to the situation, but either way, we're sending condolences to his family.
