Not a bad video, but I still would punch that sack of shit in the neck if I saw him in person.
Yeah. This video is full of little gems like that. And I'm sure he'll spot many many more of them in his TV appearances to come.
The really hilarious part is thus far all of the times he's been on have been to talk about his experience as a front office guy. But the thing is he doesn't talk about Kansas City. He only talks about the GOOD years- that couple year period when he first arrived in New England with his Cleveland Browns buddies and they won three Super Bowls. The time after that didn't exist. And the time before it is only meant to be used as a way to tell charming stories of when he worked odd jobs around the team at all hours trying to soak up any knowledge he could.
More than any other ex-football GM on TV does this guy thrive on a personality and a backstory. Sure guys like Bill Polian say, "When I was in charge I would have handled things this way yadda yadda" but it's never about THEM. It's about the subject at hand. Pioli on TV will take all those moments to talk about HIM. What he did as Director of Player Personnel during the Patriot glory years. The stuff that got a book written about him and his buddies.
Remember when he preferred to be the man behind the curtain in town, insisting that the head coach be the face of the franchise? Bull ****ing shit. He just did that so he didn't have to take any flack. This ****ing asshole is such a giant ham. He loves the camera. He loves to be on camera. Why wouldn't he? He's clearly got the hubris and the ego, and he loves it when people pay attention to him.
**** this man right in the ass.
