Don't blame him. If given the choice between actual sports media and just being a blogger/online reporter, I'll take the TV job every time.

Dude's definitely been improving on camera, you're right. I do hope stuff works out for him.

All I know is that Pioli would not want looney at the Star. He's been inside the organization. Also, the Star would probably give Looney a pretty good sized raise because of this.

You have to be good at something :)

Pioli is an insane total control freak. Its just more proof that the RAC hire was about control and nothing else.

I used to think it was Bob Gretz, carrying Carl's water. Gretz loosened up after he left the team and Rufus disappeared as well IIRC

I agree about Pioli but, RAC earned the job last year. If there has ever been a intern coach who deserved the job, it is RAC.

Romeo was just the safe hire. We know he wouldn't hire anyone outside of the tree. I think Haley and Pioli's relationship deteriorated to the point where he had to can him midseason because Haley was tanking it, and Pioli didn't have a backup plan or any real "tree" candidates available

Ya he earned it by default. I don't know who else he would have picked but I think he played it safe to give it to Crennel. He also knew the team would support the hire so he didn't have much to sell to the team or the fans for that matter. Just played a safe hand and didn't go out of the box to find a coach.

But the deciding factor was that RAC was a lackey. A lackey that wanted a head coaching gig and no one else in the NFL was gonna give that to him. He's a foot shuffling porter to Pioli and thats exactly what Pioli wants.

Maybe it will work but I'm really really doubtful.

Doesn't it automatically make language like that racist when you're talking about a black man? That's what I've heard around here in the past.

A big reaseon Romeo was hired as HC is that we are three years into building our 2 gap defense that Romeo runs. To go with a HC from outside might have meant scrapping that and that would have been foolish.

Being a reporter in KC with Scott Pioli is like being a Maytag repairman. He's not going to give you anything you can work with except fluff pieces. It hurts the fans more than it helps the Chiefs against other teams.

Yeah he put in a lot of effort but his opinions weren't exactly groundbreaking. Although to his defense he was limited in what he could say since he worked for the Chiefs.

He won't talk. His lips are sealed. He said that some people there were good to him and it isn't "in his interest" to torch the place.
