Around the Kingdom: Alex Smith, Demetrius Harris, and Bill Snyder

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 Arrowhead 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!

The recent voluntary minicamp has whetted Kansas City fan appetites for football. Nicholas Alan Clayton at Arrowhead Addict channels his inner-GM and asserts that John Dorsey should focus on resigning Justin Houston instead of QB Alex Smith:

The franchise tag number for QB’s on the other hand is $16.912 million this year. Assuming that stays more or less the same, the Chiefs will probably save some money by slapping the tag on Smith that year rather than giving him the contract he wants.

Terez A. Paylor from the Kansas City Star weighs in with a profile of former basketball player turned tight-end Demetrius Harris. The 6-7 Harris is adjusting to football after moving on from his first love: basketball.

The Royals mediocre performance through 1/3 of the season has disillusioned many fans. The team stands 26-28 after 54 games. Kings of Kauffman’s Alan Todd claims that this year’s team is not destined for the playoffs:

The top offensive acquisitions, Nori Aoki and Omar Infante, were signed as table-setters. No need for Nelson Cruz and his .310 batting average supporting 19 home runs. No need for a bomber in the middle of the lineup.

Meanwhile, Max Nelson from Jug of Snyder calls the K-State coach, “A Living Legend”. Given what Bill Snyder has been able to achieve compared to everyone else who has tried to walk the sidelines in Manhattan, it’s hard to argue with his conclusion.

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