I could go either way.
It's obvious a meltdown is underway in Kansas City due to the meglomania inspired incompetence from the GM's office. Candy wrapper gate, Haley, phone taps, the whispers by employees of intimidation, rumors of despotic control (the recent lineup thing), the recent deluge of negative articles by current and former KC jounalists, etc.
Pioli is rapidly losing the team and any respect and clout he might have had with Clark Hunt when he was hired.
There is obviously a revolution brewing. Someone is going to end up on the guillotine. It's just a question of when and whose heads are going to roll. If I'm Clark Hunt, I would nip this sucker in the bud as fast as possible to quickly halt the rapidly developing discontent in the fan base. An interm GM wouldn't be held responsible for anything negative that happens for the rest of the season and it would build the expectations in the fan base for the future of the team as most would perceive a longer, more thought out GM selection as a positive versus a quick replacement fix if Pioli & his synchophants were fired at the end of the season.
