Clark Hunt wanted to keep Scott Pioli

Expect Little From “Media” Member Pioli
June 20, 2013 - Bob Gretz | Comments (14)

It happened near the end of the disastrous 2012 Chiefs season. Whether the moment came during a face-to-face meeting or over a conference call isn’t known. But the key members of the Hunt Family football franchise took a vote.

The voters numbered six, including Lamar Jr., Sharron, Clark and Daniel Hunt – all four of the team’s owners. Also part of the moment was Lee Derrough, former president & CEO of Hunt Midwest Enterprises and now a trustee of the Lamar Hunt and family interests in Kansas City. The sixth person involved was team president Mark Donovan.

The subject was the future of Scott Pioli as the franchise’s general manager. How much discussion, if any, that went on is not clear. What is known is that a vote was taken on whether to keep Pioli, or fire him after four years in charge of the Chiefs.

The vote was 5-1, in favor of dumping Pioli. The only vote in his favor came from Clark Hunt. …Read More!

that's reasonable -- considering Gretz actually knows the Hunts and speaks with them occasionally, whereas the cp gang largely doesn't even go to arrowhead, much less actually know the Hunt family.

So you find it plausible that the Hunts, much less Clark, would give Blob details of the vote to oust Pioli and therefore throw their brother (or in Clark's case - himself) under the bus?

Well there ya go.....Clark either doesn't know anything about how to make critical decisions as to what's best for the team, or he doesn't care and only $$$ is the real issue to him.

Good thing it came down to a vote, so at least someone with a brain could at least cancel out his dumbass.

I didn't say that. I said Gretz is a reliable source for Chiefs news and this place is a destination point for that news. but I can see how that would confuse you into thinking it's the other way around.

I'm not able to access the article (subscription needed), but does the article touch on Clark's motivation? I have no doubt that he was in close contact with all the people in the voting group, and it wouldn't surprise me if he knew ahead of time that everyone else would vote to can him. In that situation, is it really that surprising that he would vote in favor of his multi-year colleague as a gesture of good faith?

if the fans don't freak out and take a steaming dump on arrowhead, pioli is still here...

Clark was as interested in firing pioli as he was actually drafting a QB

This is not surprising. If this was a new, reborn Clark we wouldn't have a retread like Alex ****ing Smith QBing our Chiefs like we always do. He would've made sure a high drafted QB is on the roster right now.

There's a possibility that Clark wanted to play good guy since he was the person who actually had to sit down face to face with Scott and shit-can him:

"Welp, I voted for you buddy, but majority says pack your shit and hit the bricks"!
