In the best of times for the Kansas City Chiefs and through the worst, the organization has heard womens voices loud and clear. Since the 1990s, the team has been conscientious about listening to the players wives and girlfriends when it comes to family concerns.
It was amazing to hear them and their side of it, said Lamonte Winston, the teams former executive director of player development until 2009. He first joined the Chiefs as a scout in 1993.
But in recent years, with issues of violence toward women cropping up both with the Chiefs and other teams in the NFL, organizations are slowly taking another approach when it comes to getting womens input: by hiring them.
