Think about it - Pioli has chosen to decline the offer - if this was a legitimate extension, Scott would be all over it.

It's a financial loophole, nothing more.
That's how I see it, too.

If we think about this, and if Pioli is in the last year of a deal (do we know that for sure?) - when did you ever hear of a GM in a contract year? Good ones get extended. The fact that he wasn't extended, say, last year means Clark wasn't convinced.

So you seem to end up in this scenario where Pioli is in a put up or shut up year, and its not going so well. Now, Hunt is angling for an exit that makes sense on the business side if things continue to burrow into the silt.

My guess is that Hunt hasn't quite decided to fire Pioli yet, but without some signs of improvement this year he will. Pioli has no leverage right now to dictate terms of an extension, Hunt is negotiating from a position of strength.

He could be trying to save money while knowing that he will likely fire Pioli either way.

I wonder if part of the language has the word "quarterback" in it.

Interesting. The plot thickens I guess.

I thought 2013 was the last year of his original contract?

I don't see how some of you take this info and use it to slam Clark.

This is a clear sign that Clark is growing a set.

Yes Plot thickens. The "Language" is control over the franchise. Clark wants more of a say and will or Pioli will be fired.

Two-year extensions aren't much of a vote of confidence dude.

If Clark really wanted Pioli extended, he would be already.

As stated already a 2 year extension with a disagreement on the buy out language doesn't sound like a ringing endorsement.

Where the guy who wrote the article translated that to staunch endorsement is beyond me.

Think about it.

The language of a buyout is the sticking point, meaning that Clark has put it on the table that if things dont turn around, he can fire SP on the cheap.

This means Pioli would have 3 more years (after 2012) and that he would need to draft a quarterback or find some way to get real results.

Would be awesome if Clark fired Pioli on the field after the game and didn't let him ride the team plane home.
