I just put it on twitter and reddit. This should go on tumblr as well but I don't have an account.

I will work on a press release tonight when I get home from work.The reason the media will lap this story up will be it was a true grass roots effort. Passionate fans chip in $5, $10, $20 whatever the could spare to make our voices heard at one aroowhead drive. That has power in the media.

Fescoe is saying this will do nothing the only way to send a message is an empty stadium.

You can hope and dream for it to happen, but it won't. By now we'd have more success getting the crowd to chant "Fire Pioli!" like Detroit fans did at every game before Millen ran off.

The biggest buzz this will get will be AFTER the banner has flown... and there are images and media of it.

That being said, i contacted a couple media people and directed them to this thread. I'm sure this will get picked up in a few places... probably ESPN and other sports outlets after it flies on Sunday... and after the 20+ point loss.

Your text works pretty well. If they bench Matt, shorten the banner and fly "We deserve Better - Fire Pioli". If Clark makes it clear Pioli is staying, fly "we deserve better" the rest of the games.

Someone needs to prepare to be the well spoken face of this and emphasize it is a grass roots group effort. It's too easy for Clark & Pioli to slide out of it if people think it's one guy.

I have to disagree. Get the Chief fans message out there: get rid of Cassel and Pioli......NOW!

jspchief
10-01-2012, 07:09 PM
It is an inspired idea, but I agree that a protest outside of One Arrrowhead (with a tip to the media) would be more effective. To be truely effective, the banner would need to be done during the game and picked up on TV.

If you are going to do a banner, I would delete the point about firing Pioli. That isn't going to happen this year. You turn Pioli against us as well. If you just call for the replacement of Cassel (and maybe RAC), then Pioli can get behind it more easily (as can Clark Hunt). Though Casshole has been seen as Pioli's golden boy, if there is a fan riot, he can use that as an excuse to agree with Hunt to select a QB in the first round next year.

Pioli's failings have been the 2009 draft, as seeing Cassel with ill-founded rose colored glasses. Otherwise, he has drafted fairly well and has done okay with recent free agent signings. His selection of RAC as head coach is understandable. I supported it at the time. Now it is clear that it was a mistake.

Again, Pioli does not get fired this year (regardless of what Babb and Mellinger chant). It is better to focus on getting rid of the most important failing of the organization -- Cassel. The second biggest failing, I hate to say, is Crennel. Focus on the most important and don't dilute the message by spreading the hate too broadly.

Thanks for your input, Scott.

But if a station is owned by a another station in the same company in pr's city, he could do the taping there and they would broadcast it on KC as if they were doing the interview.

They did that with m group of Chief fans in Tampa. If you didnt know better you thought I was live on channel 4 but in reality I read answers into a camera and they sent the video to KC.

This is a nice idea, but something needs to happen within the stadium to send a message.

I would suggest a concessions boycott. I realize adult beverages are a huge comfort in getting through a game at Arrowhead these days, but sacrifices are needed.

I agree for future games, but this is a great way to grab the media's attention and raise general awareness of the movement... then once they have the fans' attention, it would be cool to organize events like a concession boycott, walkout, etc.

Hopefully the various "fan displeasure outlets" can coordinate a little so a singular message can have the largest impact.

If this continues to build, a coordinated effort with each successive game.

Keep the message clean enough to appeal to the masses. For example a "blackout" where fans attending the game all wear black as a reminder to Clark of what will happen to attendance if this team continues its course.

I also think its important to keep a message of general player support. We still (mostly) love the guys out there playing their hearts out. I get the need to single Cassel out, but ultimately I want the players to realize we support them and this is directed at the FO. I think that will be more likely to appeal to the masses.

Oh I know. The entire team is a mess. But its not like the fanbase wants another roster flush like the Herm era.

But I think a secondary message that we still support the players (Cassel excluded) has the best chance of garnering the most fan support. Even the most diehard fans might find it easier to rail against Crennel, Pioli, and Hunt if they feel like they aren't turning their back on guys like Charles, Hali, and Berry.

If the goal is for this movement to have the loudest voice, you have to have a message that the majority of fans are willing to speak.

yep, walkouts and boycotts don't work. (at least for getting attention, obviously businesses might respond to boycotts) You need something visible, that doesn't require sound (since a reporter will be talking over you anyway, and writers will want to paint a picture). So, flying banners work as would similar, visual, ideas.

This is perfect idea to get things started. I don't think this team has hit bottom yet, so there's still time left to go dirty.

What if we get some comics together and do a roast of the Chiefs/Pioli/Hunt/etc. Spread it amongst the Chiefs boards/communities and charge cover at the door and donate it for breast cancer or something like that... We get a cardboard cutout of Cassel or Pioli or whatever and put it in the chair. Then comics come up with original takes to blast the team and roast them.

I know people are talking billboards right now, but it really isn't all that affordable to do so, besides news clips of a banner being flown around arrowhead are far more dramatic than a billboard on i35 or i70.

Pioli served as Director, and later Vice President of Player Personnel for the Patriots from 2001 to 2008 helping the Patriots franchise win three Super Bowl championships, and the NFL's only 16-0 regular season to date. However, because of the Chiefs middling success during his time with the team, his management style has received intense scrutiny from journalists and fans alike.[1]

An actual, gameday, moving sign that cant be stopped by piolis pull & sure to gain tv coverage.

And we know the likes of the moronic Solomon Wilcotts and other shills for the NFL sure as fuck won't mention anything truthful about the Chiefs ineptitude.

What about we continue to get donations for a billboard NEAR the stadiums on I-70 somewhere... or I-435.

And also fund another banner. Empty Stadium Blackout Nov 18 Get a Clue

This gives us 6 weeks to prepare? Thoughts?

Dunno, but The Oatmeal dude got 1.3 million dollars to fund the Tesla Museum. (http://theoatmeal.com/blog/tesla_museum).. I'm sure if Chiefsplanet had to come up with $5-10k for a full on campaign... I'd bet the funds would come in.

After they see the crowdsourced social grassroots campaign launch on Sunday. The Clark and Pioli may finally learn that you can't alienate your fans, your former players and field shit talent on the field year after year and get away with it without hearing from Chiefs Nation.

The owner keeps taking the Chiefs fans cash back to Dallas. Clark and his companies are getting money from the fans directly and through city, county and state taxes. Money is flowing into Texas thanks to Clarky.

And all of the Royals fans cash goes to Mr. Walmart who lives in Arkansas.

Both of our two major league owners live out of town. They don't CARE enough about KC to even LIVE in KC. And SportingKC has passionate owners and championship trophies and playoff races and excitement.

Bah ****ing humbug, Chiefs. The whole city is finally getting the clue. it's our choice, afterall.

PR has this been submitted to Reddit yet? If not, let's do it in the morning.

If so, what is the link? We should do it in text and have the link included... you can generate more comments and interest that way.

Sunday after the game might be a good time to submit something, as well... With the CP audience we should be able to get some upvotes.

It was suggested that I post *PAID* next to the user names on the OP but I'm not sure it is feasible. Unless people tag it on the donation, I'm not gonna have an idea who they are and I now have donations coming via reddit, fb, and twitter.

I will trust that people will abide by their word. If I come up short... I'll make up the diff.
