The Kansas City Chiefs are still enjoying their second straight Super Bowl win and preparing for a potentially historic three-peat next season. They lost their star cornerback L'Jarius Sneed but they are bringing back most of their core back, setting them up nicely for a shot at another title.

They will not be without any lingering questions, however. Despite being the most successful organization in the NFL for over a decade, the Chiefs continue to receive bad grades from the NFL Players Association. In their latest edition of report cards, Kansas City ranked 31st in the league in terms of their own players' perceptions of the organization.

One of those areas was the locker room. Receiving a grade of F, the Chiefs locker room was considered to be too small, and individual lockers didn't have enough room. Players highlighted the fact that they were promised a new locker room after the 2022 season but never got one.

According to NFL insider for The Athletic Kalyn Kahler, head coach Andy Reid addressed the players' frustrations about the subject.

Reid claims that such a promise was never made.

"But you know how it is in transitions when you had all this going on that we have going on with new stadiums and new facilities, and do we stay? Do we go? All of the politics that is involved there. Certain things could have been said or misconstrued. I don't know."

It's hard to know what was communicated to players versus the coaches. Perhaps something was lost in translation and it was all a big misunderstanding. But it's certainly true that the Chiefs need to make some changes to their facilities. These players deserve better training rooms, locker rooms, and weight rooms.

But at least we know we can trust Andy Reid to solve this issue with the players and the organizations in the best possible way.

Regardless of the insufficiency of the facilities, the Kansas City Chiefs are still the second-biggest favorite (+650) to win the Super Bowl next season. Head over to FanDuel Sportsbook to claim your $200 sign-up bonus and back the Chiefs.
