I tend to agree with Groves. But maybe we'll be surprised. If it stands any kind of chance, it needs to be hammered home until the Bengals game. I also think it was maybe released to the public a little early. If the Chiefs screw up and win against the Raiders that's going to jack up our rhythm. But I don't think that's going to be a problem

We had to get out in front of bad pub. When Marty did the interview and the reporter asked what was next, he mentioned the blackout and people took it as if we were gonna run this on the Raiders game and several message boards and fb groups got all sorts of bent out of shape about Chiefs fans wearing Raider colors.

Had no choice. That said, it may be a blessing in disguise. Lots of extra time to beat the drum.

I think you're in good shape. It's highly doubtful we'll defeat the Faid which will help. But even if we don't, it will be a relatively minor momentum slow-down that will pick up again soon after. Besides, if we beat the Faiders, the Bengals game it will be a good test of just how well things are going ... black-wise.

Having re-thought this... I think we should go another way with the flyers.

We are still going to do flyers but we are going to make them available online only. People can print extra if they so desire and pass them out but distribution of flyers is a pain in the rear.

Business cards.

No loose paper, we save the cost of printing a ton of paper (also less wasteful). Quick and to the point. Easier to pass out if you want to. Also a small memento for yourself for having participated in all this.

These would be double side printed with the design to be determined. Hopefully we can make it local where people can pick them up at multiple locations and keep shipping to a minimum.

Business cards CAN'T be seen on television with a bunch of fans holding them up. It would be a nice addition... but the point is to keep the heat on Pioli. And 5000 FIRE Pioli flyers in the stadium tell a nice story.

The business cards really don't... no one will be holding them up to cameras inside Arrowhead... which is where the punch is.

No camera inside Arrowhead will see the airplane banner.

The ONLY hope to get the message on TV is to have flyers, IMO. It worked with Fire Chilly, in Minnesota. Just my opinion, though. What do I know? LOL.

People can print their own flyers. We will be making them available online ala Fire Chilly. Thing is that I really don't want people running afoul of Arrowhead security and getting booted from the game.

Not only that but I asked for volunteers and no one stepped up so thinking of something a bit easier to carry.

While I hope he makes a change, I will believe it when I see it. To Clark it isn't a pointless venture. The TV contracts alone bring in enough money to make it worthwhile.

It is whether or not he wants to put up with a virtually empty stadium and take the ridicule of the public and (hopefully) the other owners.

It's all gonna be brought back and then some when Pioli drafts a first round QB. The fans that have abandoned the Chiefs this year will be right back in the stands and Clark will have his money next year when the jerseys are bought.

The good will be that we finally draft a 1st round QB. The bad will be that Pioli is still here.
But hey, I bet Pioli could talk Romeo into "retiring" so he could have another chance with another coach.

I will say this though: Clark will have drawn the line in the sand if Pioli isn't fired on December 31st and I bet my house that if that happens, the majority of fans won't be on Clark's side.

Sounds like an excellent report, Mr. BryanBusby.

I twatted this a few moments ago on that tweeter deal ... but you know, with all this media attention (which is great, and all), everybody knows what we're going to do before we do it. Thusly and ergo, the element of surprise is negated.

And according to the great Sun Tzu, "Element of surprise like sex with baby elephant. Not too bad, really."

Because they know what we're going to do, it gives them extra time to prepare their response and the employees and gameplan against us, you know? We have no shock value ... like we did the first time.

Ideally, we would be able to hold something special back ... something that the Chiefs organization won't see coming or be able to prepare for.

Here's what I think happened. After the banner, people went "what's next?". And because the next banner has been severely downplayed to this point, people heard about the "blackout" because it sounded dramatic. People then automatically assumed it would be for the next home game in place of another banner. Most people don't know we're doing another banner. We need to promote that better IMO.

That's my theory.

I thought of this while eating breakfast, and came up with this site (http://www.absorbentprinting.com/bags-and-cases/paper-bags-and-boxes/kraft-paper-paper-bags/12x17-natural-kraft-grocery-bag) after a few seconds on google (there is probably a better local option).

For $219.00 you can get 1,000 12" X 17" brown paper bags with 1 color image or logo printed on it. I was thinking you could send in "saveourchiefs.com" as the logo, only send the image upside down so it can be read while people wear the bags on their heads. Then you can hand these out in the parking lot before a certain game or all games. If you don't want SOC on it, then something simple like "Fire Pioli" might be good.

I don't know if anybody would get behind this, but I think this would be pretty funny. It might have been brought up before, if so, sorry for Q.

edit: And as Mr. FAX brought up, maybe this would make a decent surprise. I'm not sure any sports team has had fans show up with uniform paper bags...

I guess it's time for this thread to ramp up again. I've updated the OP. I have a few people I still need to add to the donors list but I'm contemplating changing the format a bit. Will update later.

This is what I updated:
BANNERS

Weather permitting, we will be flying two planes over Arrowhead on 10/28 when the Chiefs play the Raiders.

The first banner will fly a message suggested by DRU:
"RETURN HOPE - FIRE PIOLI - SAVEOURCHIEFS.COM"


The other banner will fly a message to promote the blackout:
"BLACKOUT ARROWHEAD 11/18 - SAVEOURCHIEFS.COM"

-------------------------------------------------------------
FLYER

So, we are asking that fans attending the game begin to print out a .pdf file. It is intended to be double sided but do as you wish.

The file can be found here:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8plc6cr6hwjsefp/ZNNTzaLl_2/Fire%20Pioli.pdf

If you are willing, we ask that you print out a few extra copies and take them with you to the game. If you see anyone out in the parking lot that is enjoying the banners or echoing our sentiments, give them one of the extra print outs so they can join in the movement. Please be careful if you approach others sharing what we are attempting to accomplish. If you have ever tailgated at Arrowhead, you know that there is no lacking for beer or spirits and not everyone will be in full control of themselves.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Mr. Hunt - I would love to think that you heard us and that the benching of Cassel was due to our banner. I hope that you see what we have had to endure these past few seasons... especially these past 6 games. Lastly, I hope you intend to do right by us. Pioli simply cannot be allowed to pick our future QB. He must not be allowed to pick next HC. In his 4 seasons here he has done nothing but earn the mistrust of fans and staff. Please know... we take no joy in this. We don't want to fly banners or gather up the pitchforks and torches. We don't want to "Blackout Arrowhead". We have been driven to this and there is only one solution.


Yes, tailgating and getting together with friends will always play a part of the Arrowhead experience. People will renew season tickets and keep handing over fists full of money for parking so they can party with their friends and then go cheer at a football game. You know as well as I do that the "Chiefs Kingdom" isn't made up of just the season ticket holders. The strength of the fans mostly come from people that can rarely go to a game because they live to far away or can't afford a ticket + parking. They are the people that live and die with this team via tv or radio. Grown men that get to Arrowhead for the first time ever and immediately get emotional because they know they are an hallowed ground. These are the people that are being alienated. People whose first and only priority is game being played on the field. That is where your team is losing most.

Do right by us. Please.

Pioli - Fall on your sword man. Resign and go try the "Patriot Way" somewhere else. Or not. We don't care. Just go.

Touched on some key points and didn't completely jack it up. There was a lot more but they kept most of the meat. I'm not disappointed but I always think I look like an idiot in these things.

You could see the nerves combined with the desire to make a the strong point all of us want made. I consider myself pretty well-spoken but I doubt I would have done any better. There is just a lot of points to be made and explained to the simple folks. That plus the camera is a lot of pressure.

In the end you made it clear that a lot of us aren't crazy enough to think Quinn is the future. You also did a good job commenting on how we don't think this was due to the banner. That's pretty important IMO. We don't want the image of this being about our ego thinking we are hot shit.

I have to tell you that, after all this time, it's very strange to actually observe the mannerisms and hear the voice of Planeteers. Very strange, indeed. Mr. Phobia seems like a normal guy ... kind of.

If you're going to the game and passing out flyers, make sure you get video of any harassment...though I honestly doubt there will be any...but that would be some serious humiliation if the CIA thugs start messing with the fans.

I am flying into Topeka this Friday and will be attending the game on Sunday. This will be my first time ever coming to Arrowhead and I couldnt be more excited/disappointed. Its a crazy feeling because it has been a dream of mine to come to Arrowhead and experience what the loudest and proudest outdoor stadium is like but unfortunately we have a GM and Owner who have almost destroyed that experience. We do business with a company who works in Topeka and so they found out I am a Chiefs fan and offered to fly my family in and take us to the game. We set this trip up last year, but if I knew the Chiefs would end up being this bad, I would have not accepted the offer. How shitty is that? That I would give up my dream to attend a game because of the suckage that has come out of this team for the last few years! I hope the higher up's read this...Anyway, I would love to meet some of the members of the board. I think what you guys are doing is amazing and hope this fight continues to restore this team to greatness.

Don't be TOO disappointed. Even in a bad year, Arrowhead is a great experience. Try and get there early so that you can wander around the parking lot a bit and take in the tailgating if you can. Head into the stadium a bit early as well so that you can check out the hall of fame and such inside. And regardless, have a good time!

Why was the first one at 10 am? Seems like 11 am would be a better time, when MORE people are at the stadium out of their cars, and the National stations are starting pregame, and turn focus to Arrowhead if that is the game they are carrying...

Just an honest question.

Cost to fly this time around is $1,250 for both banners. They gave us the same discount as before but this time on two planes. Also, he is towing at 32 letter rate.

A round of applause, please, to AirLake Aviation.

/I'll update financials after this transaction is complete. This will leave us with $1,500 plus in the bank.

The first banner will fly a message suggested by DRU:
"RETURN HOPE - FIRE PIOLI - SAVEOURCHIEFS.COM"


The other banner will fly a message to promote the blackout:
"BLACKOUT ARROWHEAD 11/18 - SAVEOURCHIEFS.COM"

Cool. I'll keep an eye out for them. Last game I forgot all about the banner, but ended up seeing it. I was like "Pops! that's from that Chiefs website I've told you about"

The old man doesn't do the internet thing, but I keep him up to date on all the SOC stuff, and he's heard a little on the radio. He's had season tickets since the old stadium, and this is the first year I've EVER heard him say that he's not sure if he wants to renew next year or not. It's fucking sad, man.

Strongly, strongly agree. But I think there is a banner submission deadline with which to contend. Might be worth a phonecall though. Only 4 letters change so they could be willing.
