The 1980s Had Some Great Posters. But Not Always

LOOKING BACK
By John Turney

This one, by today's standards is a bit cringe-worthy. It's the Kansas City Chiefs defense donning headdresses and Warpaint. It was done to raid money for the Heart of American Indian Center in Kansas City a wonderfully worthy cause. However, that does not always mean much to certain critics. But, at the time it was approved by Team NFL, part of NFL Properties, so go figure.
