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!

Yes because he couldn't have just told him whatever when he did it.

I understand your point, but the Hunt family has this thing about not wanting to be percieved as assholes.

It's become really easy to just not give a shit about the Chiefs.

I'm just going to go ahead and disagree here and say point blank Clark, just like his father, didn't want to change GMs. When you have steadman forever and you have peterson forever, it is very uncharacteristic to admit you're wrong 4 years into the next guy.

Exactly.

It's just crazy, though. The entire city turned on the team. If they'd kept that prick another year there would have been more people on the field than in the stands.

What has to be established here is when this vote was taken. Near the end could mean November, it could mean December.

I know in November that there were people convinced Pioli would be back. After the Broncos game those same people were convinced he was gone.

I've posted this 100 times. I thought Pioli would be here for 10+ years because of how much Clark crushed on him. Clark didn't think he had a prayer to get him to come here in 09. He bought into everything he said, like a brainwashing of sorts.

If this is true, and with Gretz I'm skeptical, but it would fall in line with that.

Whatever the case, I'm glad at least Clark's family is smart.

Exactly. Being privy to this info doesn't necessarily mean that they performed in the act.

Bitches be having secretaries and shit. Hell for all we know, Pioli had the whole family tapped and knew ahead of time.
