Bill Self Speaks Out Against Chiefs-Friendly National Anthem

Kansas Jayhawks mens basketball coach Bill Self is no fan of the current "tradition" going on at Phog Allen Fieldhouse - student fans have begun to alter the final stanza of the National Anthem from "the home of the brave" to "the home of the Chiefs," with some fans even performing a tomahawk chop to mimic fans of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Self expressed his displeasure to

"I kept asking my wife, ‘What are they saying?’’’ said Self, informed by wife, Cindy, that some of the students mimic fans at Arrowhead Stadium — the true Home of the Chiefs — while singing the anthem.

"I said, ‘I didn’t know they were saying that. I couldn’t tell.’ I don’t think that’s good. I don’t think it’s anything we should be proud about as students to carry that on, because I don’t see the place for it when you are honoring your country," Self added.

Maybe Self, an Oklahoma native, is a Dallas Cowboys fan.
