Right now it doesn't even sound like Carl is running Carl's office, now that Clark Hunt has stepped in.

According to a slap fight at another site, GoChiefs has acknowledged that it is pure speculation on Nick Athan's part.

If Clark is going to do that, why wouldnt he just fire him???

I are better at runing the Chefs than Karl Petersin. My IQ of 52 means I be 10x smerter than Pawn Karl.

I voted I could because I'd look way classier in a suit on the sideline.

From what I've witnessed that's all the job really entails.

Instead of "me" versus "Carl", it should be "any other living thing on earth" versus "Carl". Maybe exclude Matt Millen from the first option, but I'm not even sure of that any more.

1997 - 2002 we got Wesley and Hall to show for those drafts. Throwing darts at the board would have a higher % success rate.

No, I did not acknowledge that. That was a misinterpretation of a post on our board by a blog user.

Ok then:



There's zero truth to this report. Clark Hunt has not taken over negotiations unless you hear it somewhere else.

And link to Nick Athan article stating Hunt is in control of the trade.

Hunt has to make the right decision, because he’s the only person with enough power to make this trade or get Allen back into the Chiefs’ family.

Douche Baggins
04-21-2008, 05:52 PM
Again, he didn't state he was in total control of the trade. The post on the Arrowhead Pride blog made it sound like Clark had kicked Carl out of the building. That's not accurate and was never reported by our site.

I have spent a day and a half now attempting to clear up this crap and I would appreciate it if you would drop it. Have a nice day.

You don't think that the headline on the front page of WPI

Allen deal is in Hunt’s hands

represents that Hunt is in control of the deal?

No, its just that the bar is so low that darts thrown at the draft board would be more successful.

Thats the biggest key to any business IMO. If you are the boss - your greatest skill should be manilupation, ideally you want smarter people than you below you but you are smarter at how to control them.

You do realize there's more to being a President of a multi-million dollar NFL franchise then just making draft pick decisions, right?

Yeah, you gotta make good coaching and general manager decisions too...


...unless of course you are the GM too, then I guess it doesn't matter what you do. Winning clearly isn't a measuring stick that you're allowed to use.

I'll admit Carl knows more about football than me. But he's had this job for 20 years. I think within the first 5 year plan of my regime, I would know as much football as anyone if I were living and breathing the job 24 hours a day.

I suppose I could look up Florida Chief and see if he would help me in that department.

Sounds like the crappy reporting WPI is known for around here. Don't be pissed at kstater because he brought your oral discharge to the masses

It sounds to me like the article is stating that Clark has the power to approve or veto the deal that Carl negotiated. I saw nothing in there that indicated that Clark was in charge of the negotiations.

It would be a much shorter list if you were to try and name the people who couldn't do a better job than Peterson.

Let me try and come up with a couple:

Corky from Life Goes On

Ron Mexico

Isaiah Thomas(tie) both very proven failures


That is about all I can come up with.

I'm not saying that. I've not read many WPI articles and the ones I have read generally are a bit amateurish. I'm saying that what Kstater is claiming is a stretch, if not completely wrong based on the article he linked.

Where's the "Chiefs Planet as a colective whole" option?
We could vote in polls on the front office moves, hiring/firing/drafting/upgrades/etc.

Right now, and on a year-to-year basis, going into the draft or free agency, I'd say my knowledge of players is about a 6 out of 10. Given about a year and a half, I could bump that to an 8, at least, if it were my job. I'd also be smart enough to surround myself with people smarter than me, so I'd have many opinions to disseminate. I'd not deal with "friends" uinless they were proven winners.

My weakness, and one I think I share with Carl, is that I'd often be looking for the diamond in the rough. I'd like to think, though, that I'd be doing that with low money players in FA, rather than draft picks, regardless of round.

My draft philosophy would be 85% BAA, and 15% Need. My free agency philosophy would be not to spend big, unless it was a player on his second contract, who filled a huge hole. No more big name guys at the end of their careers. Free agents on my team would be evaluated much as Philly and Pittsburgh do it...rarely signing a guy past 30 to a long extension.

If you can honestly answer NO to the following questions:

1. Would you hire Gunther Cunningham as head coach?
2. Would you hire Greg Robinson as defensive coordinator?
3. Would you hire Greg Robinson TO DO ANYTHING?
4. Would you let Dick Vermeil have any control over your defense whatsoever?
5. Would you hire Herm Edwards as your head coach?
6. Would you cuss out a Mormon during contract negotiations?
7. Would you trade away your best and most popular young player at the height of his career?

Then YES, you could do a better job running this team than Carl Peterson.
