So disclaimer - I'm not a chiefs fan and am (obviously) much less familiar with Chiefs stuff than you guys, but I gotta say I don't see how the OP makes any sense at all.

So who/what is SOC and why would he risk getting fired by sending what seems to be an unauthorized email (hello PROVABLE misconduct) about inner workings stuff?!?

Clark is trying to force Pioli's hand and have him quit. Clark had a heated discussion with Scott this morning according to this email. Clark told him he won't have any say in this head coach because "this head coach will be here longer than you will".
Makes zero sense. No way in a hundred million years Pioli quits and breaks his contract. It's so absurd it's laughable. Can't imagine why Hunt would even bother.

Then there's this piece of info. Clark talked with Peyton Manning at length Sunday night. He wanted to know why the Chiefs weren't considered and everything Peyton said pointed the finger squarely on Pioli. Said Pioli's rep across the league is terrible. His inability to foster a "team" environment instead of one ruled like a dictator was huge too.

This really pissed Clark off. I said in a previous post that the loss could have triggered all of this, but it's apparent the PM discussion could have as well.
If this is how Hunt learned this for the first time (assuming any of it is true) then he is stunningly out of touch, no?

Quote:
Clark wants to make a splash. He also wants to save the money from just firing Pioli. With all the lawsuits that former employees have pending against the Chiefs that list Pioli, Clark may have a case to fire him with definite cause.
Not likely. For cause terminations in normal contracts are usually very limited. I dunno about GM contracts, but probably even more so. BUT, whatever for cause argument they had was likely blown by waiting YEARS to fire the guy. Plus Hunt probably approved the firings and the risk of an age discrimination lawsuit was likely known.
