IMO the Chiefs are letting this play out to make the fans look bad in an effort to counter the fan revolt against Cassel and Pioli.
Cassel was in the middle of #7ing the bed and proving that fans were right to want a change. The best thing that happened to Pioli sunday was this incident. That's why they're continuing to let the national media defecate on this fan base.
