You know about the recent features ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” has run on the University of Missouri Athletic Department.  It seems like that program can’t get away from that network’s microscope, whether directly or indirectly involved.  The latest case comes the day after the Kansas City Chiefs and Mizzou jointly announced that the Tigers are returning to Arrowhead Stadium next year (exactly one year to the date) to play a football game against BYU. is running a story exposing possible food handling violations at Arrowhead and Kauffman Stadium.  Some of the pictures are absolutely disgusting.

That story becomes a sidebar for me and Matt Michaels of our Columbia affiliate, KTGR, as we debate whether or not the Mizzou-BYU matchup will draw enough interest from Mizzou fans?

Will these allegations of poor food handling influence your decision to attend a Chiefs, Royals or Mizzou football game in Kansas City.  Or would it influence your buying decisions at the game?  Share your thoughts in our comments section below.
