The News spot says it was a Private message from the Chiefs to Teedubya. Why would he say their response was to the fans and not him?

This is certainly a pivotal moment in Chiefs history. Tomorrow morning Pioli will be out in the driveway meekly waxing teedubya's car like Biff Tannen waxing George McFly's car.

He's saying that their apology was for the broader fan audience, because he'd already been bumped by them. He obviously couldn't see it.

Absolutely but...

Let me clarify. I don't think the Chiefs organization, nor 80% of our fans understand what kind of potential Twitter has. Nor do I think they understand it's use today. Most of our fans cannot grasp the possibilities that social media presents.

Look at the response against ari on the Chiefs websites.

Wow. That is just...insane.

Do you really think the number is that high? I'm not disputing it, I'm just surprised.

Twitter is as important, or more so, than any single or conglomerate of websites, including Facebook, for news of the world.

Twitter language makes no sense to me. I tried it for a while and got sick of hearing what everyone was doing every minute of the day. Swimming through all the worthless post for the occasional nugget seems like a waste.

Not for me. The language is what it is because of the 140 character limit.

I follow just about every sport writer, tons of actors, directors, colleagues, so on and so forth and I love it. Instant, quick information with no "Chiefzilla-style" verbosity.

The prosecution rests, your honor. It's like getting people to understand al jazeera (america or aj Japan) network. "It's mooslim"!! No, it's very well respected as a news outlet. But you know the reaction you get just from the name.

LMAO at chiefzilla. I look at those posts and just go "wall of text"... Next post".

I signed up in 2007. If I'm not mistaken, I think Ari started a thread about Twitter around that same time. Like you Dane, I follow major news outlets, favorite writers in sports, and some folks who interest me around the world.

It's actually how I found out about the tsunami in Japan as my feed went freaking nuts at 0200 that morning. I woke up trying to find it on the news but it wasn't announced for another twenty minutes. Incredible medium for sure.

I was a huge twitter user 4 or so years ago. My wife and I were both really big into it. Then it got very consuming, and it became difficult for me because many of my students began using twitter. It had become my outlet for my edgier personality, so I had to start self-monitoring. Then it was no longer that fun.

Anyway, it was all good back in the day, but I feel like it's going the same route of facebook and becoming passe and past the curve. Reddit/pinterest/instagram all seem to be a little more "cutting edge" at the moment, though I'm not really that interested in them either. In all honesty, I'm a little sick of social media, though I maintain an observational interest and keep up with the trends. I guess I'm getting old and out of touch or something.

I use Twitter to follow current events and people that are fun (Steve Martin and Albert Brooks immediately come to mind). I have followers, yet Tweet rarely. It's kind of odd for me to tweet daily minutiae.

Plus, the pressure to say something witty or important is a little daunting, especially considering some of my followers.

I had like 700 followers (not really many in teedubya terms, but my students are always impressed when I tell them I had that many). I used it to engage in local community building as well as discuss teaching politics and culture. As such, I was doing a lot of dialog and retweeting. But yeah, I should probably just create another account and use it passively. I definitely appreciate the medium, but I just haven't gotten back into it (probably because I feel like all the punkass kids got on it and ruined it for me).

I have several people in the entertainment industry, including a few big companies that follow. With that being the case, I'm hesitant to post anything of real value or something worthwhile, other than the occasional status update.

I don't want one of these companies to call for project or whatever, then read something objectionable on my Twitter account.

So, I just talk shit here. :D

I'm not suggesting the Planet hasn't flexed a little muscle in the past but I think you're mis-reading the Planet's involvement in this instance. Aside from a few Planeteers contributing to the viral nature of this episode and the fact Teedubya happens to have an account here, most of this took place on social media sites such as Twitter, Reddit, and facebook.

"In the Twitter age, everyone has an audience -- mine happens to be over 120,000," he said. "Now, every voice can be heard."

That is great! Unprecedented.

In the Twitter age, sports teams can no longer claim to be the voice of the fan.

Social media gives fans an opportunity to hold teams accountable for their failures. Fan power is absolutely changing the sport itself.

I was so active online with this last night because it pissed me off. When you've lost more games than any other team in the AFC since 2007 you shouldn't talk that way to someone because they call you cheap. So, I posted it like wildfire everywhere. He didn't need me though, dude has 20k more twitter followers than an NFL team for Christ's sake.

Companies have a responsibility to teach their employees how to properly use social media - improper use can lead to PR problem like this one. Or worse.

I work for a Fortune 10 company. We have to take mandatory training on how to use, and not use, social media while representing the company.

This really isn't about the message itself.

YEEEEEEEAHHHHHHH

BOYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!


When a longtime Chiefs fan named Travis Wright got frustrated by Sunday’s loss to the Falcons, he took to Twitter to declare that he couldn’t be much of a fan anymore, accusing owner Clark Hunt of being cheap and adding an obscenity.

When the Chiefs employee who handles Twitter for the team saw that, he took umbrage and sent a private direct message to Wright, telling him to “get a clue.” That wasn’t very smart, because Wright posted the message on Reddit, where hundreds of people ripped the Chiefs for their poor fan relations.

Eventually, the employee who runs the Chiefs’ Twitter (whose name hasn’t been released publicly) tweeted this apology: IMAGE

Wright told KSHB in Kansas City that the Chiefs didn’t apologize to him personally, and they’ve blocked him from seeing their Twitter messages.

“The funny thing about [the apology] is that I personally didn’t see it,” Wright said. “They didn’t apologize to me, they apologized to everyone else because of the backlash.”

The incident is reminiscent of the time in 2008 when then-Browns General Manager Phil Savage responded to a critical e-mail from a fan by e-mailing him back and saying, “Go root for Buffalo-f#@* you-.” Team employees at all levels would be wise to learn that if a fan rips you online, you’re best off ignoring it.

I guess I can understand all the uproar from this, but the reality is, the Chiefs are a privately owned business. They are free to run it anyway they want. Not smart, but if they want to tell fans to *uck off or go fly a kite, they are certainly entitled to that. You as a customer are certainly entitled to go spend your money elsewhere.

I agree, but they also need to know that making a choice to say something like that is going to cause a PR nightmare. If you're willing to put up with that, sure, go tell all your fans to fuck off just for fun. :)

The incident is reminiscent of the time in 2008 when then-Browns General Manager Phil Savage responded to a critical e-mail from a fan by e-mailing him back and saying, “Go root for Buffalo-f#@* you-.” Team employees at all levels would be wise to learn that if a fan rips you online, you’re best off ignoring it.

Just how fucking awesome would it be if it was Pioli himself that responded to TW's tweet?

How is automatically jumping to the last resort the best solution?

This is the problem with the monopoly that is pro football.

When consumer confidence is wavering, Ford Motor Company doesn't get on Twitter and say "**** you, go buy a Toyota". They interact with people on Twitter (and Facebook and all sort of other contact media) and actively (or silently) solicit feedback on HOW TO IMPROVE CONSUMER CONFIDENCE.

They actually want someone to get on Twitter and say "I've bought Fords all my life but this new F150 is bullshit. " It gives them an opportunity to get a leg up on their COMPETITION by actually asking the customer "what don't you like?" and "what would you improve?"

If the guy just stops buying Fords and gets everybody else to do the same, Ford eventually stops making F150s to cut their losses and in the end, he doesn't get what he wants.

This sort of uproar damages the Chiefs brand. This damages their wallet indirectly. Surely you guys understand that?

There's a reason that the Chiefs spend tons of money on advertising and marketing, and it's not so you read an ad and run out and buy a season ticket. It's so you read an ad and have positive associations with the Chiefs brand, which then, eventually might lead you to buying a ticket or memorabilia or purchasing a PPV game or whatever. When things like this happen, it counteracts those efforts and certainly costs them money, even if its not in the form of massive season ticket holders selling off their tickets.

In other words: it's effective on Ari's part if you're wanting reform of the organization. To pretend otherwise is to discount the effectiveness of marketing, advertising, and branding, not just social media.

I believe there was an email posted here from someone in sales who told a CP member that it was their choice to be a fan, after they said they weren't going to buy tickets until Cassel was gone.

It's just odd there was a story about a candy wrapper, but there have been at least two occasions where people from the organization have told fans "it's your choice to buy our product." Of course, it is our choice, but between the reports of how much of a control freak Pioli is, the fact that the NFL has seen a decline in attendance in each of the past 3-4 years, and of course the Chiefs' struggles, it's pretty sad they're so clueless when it comes to dealing with upset customers.

Sure, maybe it's just a case of two people having a bad day, but that's really no excuse. It's nothing to be outraged about... it's just another sad display from an organization that somehow still thinks it's 1995 from both a product standpoint and social media/PR standpoint.

I definitely agree with this, but I think that getting a widespread message that they're under the cap consistently out to fans doesn't help their brand much. You're right, though, in that if they win, no one gives a shit how far under the cap they are. Hell, if they win, everyone would be talking about what a genius Pioli is for developing inhouse talent, finding bargains, and not overpaying for players.

The problem is, they haven't won a meaningful game since January 1994 which is a long time in the sports world.

The Chiefs shouldn't think they have something to hang their hat on, as it were.

Yeah... but, it is slowly changing now that it's been two decades since they won a playoff game. And even if it's not a substitute for football, Sporting KC is showing people how an organization should be run. That kind of arrogance usually catches up to a company, except in this case they're the only game in town and they could eventually move if things got really bad.... so yeah, they know they have the fans by the balls.

But, like I said, I do think it's slowly changing... Arrowhead is rarely at the same level as it was 10-15 years ago, more long-term season ticket holders have finally given up their tickets... I've been going to games for free or at least 50% off for the past several years, and it's almost always in the lower level. But, that doesn't mean they won't continue to make a shitload of money for years to come and fans won't flock back the moment they show signs of improving... hell, I would have been tempted to buy season tickets had Peyton Manning or a franchise QB come to town.

It took a while, but it did happen and that was before the internet and all this social media communication. In the late 70s and most of the 80s, there was usually more empty seats than full ones.

The only teams that even compare on the long term failure scale are the Jets, Browns and Lions. Everyone else, including expansion teams, have gone farther than KC.

Full of fail.

What does the guy's looks have anything to do with it? People of all shapes and sizes have the right to b!tch when they are unhappy. And if you think its limited to social media, go work the phones for customer service or stand at the front desk of the post office.

And he didn't "hunt down" anyone, especially some intern - he sent a message to the official account of an NFL franchise. Its not his problem that they put some intern in charge of that. He himself works for a company smart enough to know that social media shouldn't be taken lightly, or sh!t like this happens.

Full of fail? What does that even mean? Are you 12?

This guys looks has everything to do with it. Take this thread for example, there 20 .gifs of him in 5 seconds based off a video of him doing some Joey Lawrence "Woah" motion. I'd say this thread itself is basing his actions off his looks alone.

And yeah, if the dude is going to sit behind a computer and throw a bunch of threats and cuss words out towards some "official organization" then looks do come into play.

I'll put in this perspective, you say that guy runs a company, I'd have no problem walking up to him in a bar and telling him his company is a pile of shit, and I am judging him based off his looks. Why? Because I have no fear in terms of how he looks, like Dane said, he's not an MMA fighter. Twitter/Social Media and Computer Muscles go hand in hand. My original argument was this guy wouldnt say this to anyone, in person. And I stand by that because it just doesn't happen in real life. the Computer World, yes.

Couple this behavior along with keeping Cassel as our QB to go with Pioli being nothing more than Carl Peterson Part Deux (only hiring coaches and players that come from that vaunted Patriots Tree, just as Carl did with all of his coaches), and you have the reason why I absolutely, positively will not pay for a ticket to watch the Chiefs while Clark holds on to Pioli and his regime. It's sad, too, because I love going to the games (and my boy dtebbe took care of my ticket needs for a number of years).

I refuse to endorse a program that does not have winning as a priority with my hard earned cash. I'll believe Pioli is interested in winning when he flushes all the coaches and players he played with in New England, and I'll believe Clark is interested in winning when he flushes Pioli when he finally concludes that it was Brady and Belichick are the reasons New England is successful, which will likely be never.

If Scott Pioli ran the twitter, I'd understand. But at the end of the day, he doesn't. And taking it out on some rando is no different than walking in a 5 star restaurant, hating the food, so you go in the bathroom and shit on the floor instead of the toilet to make the janitor's job worse.what did what he looks like have to do with it?

Deberg1990 has already said this, but the Chiefs do have all of the leverage here.

The Chiefs official twitter guy is absolutely 100% right. He shouldn't have said what he did but he's got a point. This will all be forgotten by most Kansas Citians in a couple of weeks, esp if the Chiefs win their next couple games and the team starts winning. Now if they continue to play like shit on defense and Matt Cassel continues to only turn in one good half of football before completely shitting his pants, then this thing may indeed blow up around town, on talk radio etc. Has Parkins, Fescoe, KK or anyone talked about this yet? (Man what a joke of a lineup we have for sports talk radio here in KC LMAO). If the Chiefs keep losing, this story will get bigger and bigger and it will be more talked about.

But winning fixes everything.

Too bad the Chiefs haven't won anything in a while, which is part of TW's point. This franchise should send thank you letters to the Glass family. Because the Chiefs are totally taking advantage that there's nothing else in KC that can compete w/ the Chiefs sports wise. Sporting KC is considered by many around here to be the model sports franchise in terms of ownership/fan relations, etc, but soccer sucks in general and won't ever compete with the Chiefs, or even the Royals for that matter.

Just look at STL. They're a baseball town. No one in that town gives a shit about the Rams. STL fans will disagree with this but it's 100% true. I lived around them for almost 10 yrs and they could give a shit about football season. So much so that the franchise has considered moving on more than 1 occasion. Could you ****ing imagine the possible meltdown in KC, or especially on Chiefsplanet if there was a remote possibility of KC moving to LA??? It would sure ease the stress out of a lot of us on fall Sunday afternoons, but we'd all be heartbroken, and I don't know if this site would continue to exist (possibly it would but who knows, eventually the interest of the team would die out I would think over time).

The point is, the Chiefs own this town and the NFL interest and product has gotten so big in today's American culture/society (and obviously the Chiefs and the NFL know this), that the Chiefs are taking full advantage of the fact that we as fans have nothing else to turn to. If the Royals were good and playoff contenders, I think it would be a different story since the baseball playoff season runs into almost half of the football season. The Chiefs don't have to worry about that. Most of the people in KC wouldn't be able to tell you off hand what the Royals record is in baseball. Probably couldn't even come close to doing so. I know they've played about 140 games, but I heard that from some Sportscenter guy while talking about another team. If I were to guess I think the Royals were 15 games under .500 ball. So considering 70-70 is .500 ball I'd figure the Royals were about 55-75 at the moment.

The point is I haven't followed the Royals since the ASG, and I'm probably in the same boat as a lot of people. This isn't going to hurt the Chiefs. I'm sure that twitter guy will be dealt with behind closed doors, but overall this won't change a damn thing. The NFL and Chiefs have a monopoly on the sport of pro football here in KC. Ultimately the Chiefs don't give a shit because people are still willing to shell out hundreds and thousands of dollars to support this team and until that moment when Arrowhead is a ghost town like in the 80's, and the TV blackouts start coming in, Clark will either do something about it and spend money to build an actual winning team, or he will pack up his shit, pay the fines for breaking the lease to Jackson Co. and move the team elsewhere to a larger market (being kind of therhetical here, I don't even know if this is a real option - I know the league would have to approve but I really don't know if the Chiefs could legally leave KC by just paying a large fine, or if Clark's financially forced to have the franchise stay up because of the lost money involved - i dunno).

The investment we make in this team is more than just monetary. I know there was a time where I was so invested in the team (without spending a dime on game tickets) that a loss would ruin my day. I understand wotcher saying... but it is is a ticky tack point. Valid... but ticky tack.

---

I applaud teedubya for saying what is on his, and most fans, minds about the current state of this fucktastic team.

Now that I am a STH, I get uber frustrated because though I have the cheapest tickets in the house... I still drive 3.5 hours to pay $27 for parking with not a fucking soul in sight directing traffic. $50 in drinks and food for tailgating because I'm not going to pay $50 for a burger, fries, and a single beer in the stadium. Don't forget the two tanks of gas to get there and back.

Week 1, I parked 3300 feet from the stadium and my 80 year old FIL trucked our way into the stadium and found that there were a dick ton of open parking spots because the lot attendants couldn't be bothered with actually trying to fill the fucking parking lot. When we get into the stadium, we inquire about an elevator to the top floor and 8 fucking employees had not the foggiest idea where it was.

The whole organization from the GM down to the ticket takers feel zero ownership in their interactions with the fans and what little they do for us is nothing more than a marketing ploy to get people's money.

This organization as a whole fucking sucks and until they realize how poorly they treat the fans, both by the product they put on the field as well as their interactions with the fans when camera's aren't on speak volumes about how they view the people that spend their hard earned money on a team that is obviously more concerned with making money than actually accomplishing what sports are, in the end, all about.

I think the point has been touched upon already but the fact Teedubya used a vendor badge to enter Arrowhead over the course of years and freely admits doing so on this site makes it kind of ironic that he's bagging on the Chiefs for being cheap.

This post makes it obvious Teedubya's every bit as responsible for the Chiefs being 30 mil under the cap as Clark is....

NOT!!!!!!!!

Teedubya is my official hero from this. it was all over the internet yesterday.



I can applaud and respect the effort, but its not going make any real change. This will all be forgotten about in a few weeks. Especially if they start winning. Winning changes alot of fans perspective and certainly brings the flames down.

This yes with out a doubt. OTOH, if we continue to get blown the **** up in games there is going be a huge revolt. At least there should be.

Teams across the league are putting up 35-45 points a game and if we can't produce to keep up or find a way to slow them down enough to win we are truly ****ed. There is no evidence to suggest our offense can produce that much points on a weekly basis. Likewise no evidence our defense can be strong enough to hold back teams onslaught.

Right now all we got to hope for is that Tamba Hali can be that difference maker in games and also soon the return of Flowers. At no point can we put our trust in the hands of Matt Cassel let alone the other two riff raf back ups.

Sure I think we can turn it around, but that's just my homer speaking out loud.

Next year the motherfucker is going to be applauded by the masses of dumbasses because he'll increase spending by quite a bit, but only because he's being forced too through the CBA.

Conspiracy!

I watched a youtube video that clearly shows that teedubya and the chiefs were online at the same time. This is obviously a conspiracy between he and the Chiefs organization to distract the fanbase from the subpar play of the team on the field and the lack of action by management and ownership to bring in and retain quality staff. Internal demolition charges can be visibly seen detonating the fact that Chief fans have not seen a playoff win since 1994.

Petro is talking about this now.

The CBA will not force the Chiefs to spend a single additional penny next year.

Why?

Because they already spend well over the minimum spending amount that will go into effect.

How?

Because the minimum amount will be measured by cash spending, not salary cap room. Those two things have nothing to do with each other.

What?

The Chiefs spend far more money than anyone thinks they do. But as this thread perfectly encapsulates, 99% of the general public thinks that if a team has ample cap room, they must not be spending money.

Why?

Not sure, but I suspect inbreeding.

Hey!

Good post. But we're still way under the cap. Again. And we still suck. So spend more cap money so we can get better. We have it. Again.

This is the logic I don't understand. Pioli spends upwards of $120 million and we suck, but people are perfectly willing to believe that we'll be better if he goes out and spends an extra $20 million.

If he was that savvy a spender, we wouldn't suck in the first place. Why is he going to spend that extra $20 million any wiser than he spent the first $120?

At some point the discussion needs to shift from "They don't spend money" to "They spend money foolishly because Pioli is incompetent". Unless someone in the media starts making this point, I guess it'll happen around February when the dream of CBA-forced spending officially ends.
