Kansas City is one of the best sports towns in the country, and KC Kingdom has a lot of fun bringing you news from around the area for our professional and collegiate teams.

Few fans are as passionate about their teams than Kansas City fans, whether it is making Arrowheamaskd Stadium the loudest outside venue in the world, or filling up Sporting Park each match, or being Royal in Kauffman Stadium. The area also supports three of the most passionate college fan bases in the country.

Each morning, we will try to bring you some news from around our sports kingdom, in addition to the news, information, editorials, and analysis KC Kingdom already provides.

We may also pass along an interesting post or two from around the world-wide web, just for fun.

We hope enjoy the news from Around The Kingdom. Happy reading!

Every now and then, a sports story comes along that affects not just one team, but everyone with an interest in the game. Today, one such story might have made its first appearance when a group of former NFL players filed suit alledging that teams used drugs to mask the severity of injuries without informing players of the risks.  You can read the AP story here.

Like the suit over traumatic brain injuries, if these allegations prove true, they could have long-range impacts on how player injuries are treated—which could affect how the game is played on Sundays.

With awareness of the game’s  long term consequences on the rise, Arrowhead Addict’s Stacy D. Smith suggests Knile Davis needs to take a bigger role in the Chiefs offense this season:

The Chiefs could stand a bigger offensive contribution from Davis in 2014. It would certainly keep Charles’ legs fresher and minimize wear-and-tear on his 200-pound frame.

Over in Royals-land, everyone is frustrated with the anemic offense. David Hill at Kings of Kauffman attempts to quantify their lack of power.

Meanwhile, Royals review writer Tyler Drenan addresses swirling speculation that the Royals might dangle closer Greg Holland as trade bait and replace him with the surging Wade Davis. Drenan asserts that Davis cannot stand in for Holland, no matter what his stats might suggest.

Be sure to check out KC Kingdom throughout the day for news on the Chiefs, Royals, Sporting KC, Tigers, Wildcats, and Jayhawks.
