I honestly don't know what all the fuss is about. I'm totally impressed with Clark on this deal.

Wanted to get rid of Coswell? Check.
Wanted to get rid of Roleo? Check.
Wanted more involvement from the owner? Check.
Wanted Pioli to be humiliated beyond belief? Check and Done.

Now, it's true that Pioli has yet to receive his formal walking papers, but that's merely a matter of time. No owner of anything (let alone an NFL franchise) is going to publicly urinate on his GM's head then keep him around unless it's for financial reasons only. And, to be perfectly honest, instead of paying Dr. Evil's early termination buy-out, I'd rather Clark use the money on better players.

I urge all interested parties to immerse their nuts in a nice, warm testicle bath for a few days while the details get worked out. Nothing soothes the fevered soul like a good junk dunk.

Beyond dumb.
Their patience is a large part of why they haven't done much in 40yrs. Carl Peterson is a perfect example of that. 20yrs of patience, 15yrs too long.

I'm not satisfied. Pioli or bust. The only reason Hunt hasn't fired him yet is because he isn't going to. I'm betting that the Chiefs think a new hire in a month or 2 will cool enough of the fan base to forget about Pioli. And they will be right.

I've been thinking about this, and I don't think it's about the money. Not entirely anyway. I have no doubt Scott Pioli is on his way out the door, but why wait? When you think about the failure of the football team, that's one thing, and it's bad enough. However when you think about just how alienated the fan base is, over being essentially told to **** ourselves with a rusty, AIDS fork by the front office for the last 4 years. How player charities have been shut down. Radio and TV shows by players, shut down. How former players are excluded from participation on any level. How there are a **** ton of former employers suing the club over age discrimination. There is a lot more than 2-14 going on here.

Scott Pioli came in here and completely broke this proud, storied franchise of 53 years down in only 4 years. And it wasn't just winning and losing. The whole thing tumbled down in 4 short years. To the point that Clark had to change the entire business model to ensure that something like this could never happen again. I think it's principal for Clark. I think Clark is essentially saying "You either quit, or I'll have you serving ****ing hot dogs in the concourses next year!" I genuinely think Clark is having a hard time from a moral perspective to reward that fraud, and thief one more penny for everything he's done. At least I sure as **** hope so...

As far as my satisfaction? I said on Facebook yesterday that I didn't think there was any way I could have foreseen being so in love with a team 3 days after the end of the worst season I'd ever witnessed in my life. Clark Hunt most certainly gives a shit about Kansas City Chiefs football, and there isn't anything that could make me happier than that. Because he's the only guy around that has any say so that will be there longer than me.

No. I would feel much more confident about landing a top tier coaching candidate if there wasn't an embattled GM hanging around in limbo while the CEO works on a plan to get out of paying him. Like everything related to this organization, it reeks of dysfuction.

I agree with this. Clark Hunt made me a fan again of him & renewed confidence that better days & years are ahead of us. He was not a happy camper by any streatch of imagination. I could see the pain he held on to this past year. With or with out Pioli / be damned. I think Clark Hunt is determined to make this a winning organization & is willing to change long time belief that it's about the GM and now puting the control into the hands of the Coaches with direct line to owner. That is huge for growth with the young owner in Clark Hunt.

This video was probably posted somewhere, but I can't embed it. It's KCTV's exclusive interview with Clark. Nothing really new, but I did like seeing Clark's response to fans flying banners over the stadium, and saying he felt our pain and was miserable himself through the season.

As tragic as the Belcher murder suicide was, I think it turned the corner for Clark to be apart of the team to be there for them. Instead of being on the outside. He does care about his team and the fans. I can understand why he chose not to speek during the season to the fans. It was his flustration as much as ours.

I can see growth in Clark as an owner & think he is only going do his best to make the best decisions he can going forward for the best interest of the team. Not saying they will always be the best decisions but the intent to make the right decisions ways heavy on his shoulders.

if the story about clark not changing his mind on pioli until he spoke with manning is true...that is frightening...cassel, haley, crennel, and 2-14 weren't enough for Clark to break up with his bro-friend (and all rumors point to Clark having given pioli an extension...Matt Cassel got pioli an extension...that is not the sign of a smart, involved owner)

by every objective measure pioli is a failure and deserves to be fired unceremoniously...but Clark is a delicate thing, and so we have to wait

if you squint, you can see all this as a way of preserving a place for Clark's best hj brah pioli while giving fans the appearance that pioli has been punished..fast forward a month and we've hired a coach who - surprise - is ok with pioli and they - together - are preparing for another disastrous pioli draft, while hiring more pioli flunky coordinators...and Clark still gets to play farmville with his papa bear (Clark is a bottom, natch)

oh, and we trad for Smith...since Clark has never said drafting a QB is a priority (he was extra weaselly on this point in the interview on 810)...8-8 y'all, pony up!

of course, if Pioli's termination papers are sitting on Clark's desk waiting for lawyers to argue over exit $$, then the preceding fantasy is wrong and Clark is the Man...

So, while my post is the optimistic viewpoint, the posts are still pretty much the same. If it's all a big sham, I don't think either one of us are going to be in different spots. Outside, looking the other direction, and not giving a ****.
