ARROWHEAD APP: The K.C. STAR noted the Chiefs are "launching a free mobile app and wireless network inside Arrowhead Stadium" in time for Sunday's home opener against the Cowboys. Fans inside the stadium who are connected to the Chiefs’ wireless network also will be "able to access live video and other features on a free mobile app available through Apple or Google Play." The Chiefs Mobile app "offers live streaming video of players entering the stadium, the locker room and every play of the game, plus instant replays from multiple camera angles and 'under-the-hood' replays that officials see on the sideline." The app also "includes access to the NFL Red Zone channel" (KANSASCITY.com, 9/11).
NATIVE SCENE: In Green Bay, Paul Srubas reported protesters will be on hand at Sunday's Redskins-Packers "to remind football fans that 'Redskins' is considered by many to be a derogatory term for Native Americans." The National Indian Education Association is "hosting a session" on Friday at the Univ. of Wisconsin-Green Bay on the issue, and several members expect to be on hand for the game to "hold signs objecting to Washington’s team name and logo." The Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin is one of the Packers’ "major sponsors, with the entry gate on Lambeau Field’s east side named for the Oneida Nation" (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE, 9/10).
