Chiefs | Peterson reacts to Saunders' stories
Fri, 20 Jan 2006 12:59:27 -0800

Doug Tucker, of the Associated Press, reports Kansas City Chiefs president Carl Peterson contacted media outlets Friday, Jan. 20, and angrily denied reports that he once promised to make Al Saunders his head coach. Several media outlets reported that two years ago Saunders was promised, or at least led to believe, that he would be head coach when Dick Vermeil retired. "Al Saunders was never promised the head coaching job of the Kansas City Chiefs," Peterson said in a hastily organized conference call with reporters from the Kansas City Star and The Associated Press. "I'm telling you he wasn't. I really take offense that's in the paper as true. It's not."

Let's face it: Carl and Al did not like each other. As soon as Carl's buddy Dickie V retired, Al was as good as gone. Carl's pretty prideful last I checked.

Sure, Carl. Just like you didn't mean it when you said the only true Chiefs fans are the ones that buy your season tickets. Carl is an a-hole. Go away Carl, most all of us are sick of your arrogant BS.

I think $2.5 mil a year has a lot to do with AS leaving

Plus, he's used to working for qualified, if old and weepy, head coaches

about Saunders :rolleyes:




i seriously doubt you'll ever hear Saunders say anything ... not his style.



Saunders prolly wasn't promised the head coaching job by Peterson. Because Peterson NEVER intended to give him the job. I bet it was implied by Vermeil or Peterson though.

i imagine Vermeil implied and Peterson was non-committal and vague.


Peterson is a weasel dick and always has been ... Saunders is better for getting away from him.

Ah, well about Saunders, I can see that. I just assumed that Saunders was calling out Peterson on some media network.

I'll agree that Peterson is a weasel dick.

Why does Carl feel the need to get the last word in? It's almost like Carl wants to get a feud started with Saunders.

Seems unprofessional to call a press conference to deny a story that no longer has anything to do with the Chiefs.

This article says "Itís clear now that the Chiefs made promises to Saunders the last couple of years ó spoken or unspoken or both".

Where did Posnanski get his info? If Posnanski just made this $hit up, he deserves to be called out. If it's fact, he should reveal his sources.

I'm tired of the media writing crap as fact when there is nothing to substantiate it.

And from the sounds of things he isn't promised the keys to the executive HC washroom at Washington either. Williams will get $1million if he doesn't succeed Gibbs as head coach so once again Al will get passed over.

Then again Snyder could pay it and not blink an eye! :hmmm:

"....Did Carl say that?"

"yes he did."

"..then obviously that's not truth. I'm the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, last time I checked"

Looks like the Star & Joe Posnanski won't be able to cover the Chiefs' press conferences any longer. Carl sold the exclusive rights to the Topeka Capital Journal.
