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!

I truly believe if Reid would have said yeah on Pioli, he'd still be here.

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.
If Gretz lied, you wouldn't see him sitting in the media room with the rest of them come august. It's understandable, I guess, that fans hate Gretz' for his style and his former position with the team media group, but to call him a liar so desperate for work that he would jeopardize his future covering the Chiefs is far fetched slander imo. Not that you said it.

How does lying preclude that in your mind?

Kevin Keitzman, to my knowledge, isn't barred from attending press conferences at Arrowhead- and he's been making up **** for years.

I mean, we're still waiting for the damned cell phone to ring with information that "will shake the NFL to its foundations".

This thread isn't about Pioli. It's about Clark Hunt. He still owns the team.

I thought the choice to keep or fire Pioli had been given to Andy Reid?

well if you don't believe it's true then...

JFC if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck.. clark has not shown anything but incompetence to me. "A" for effort, I guess.

Kevin Keitzman is not a football mind in my book, he's not even in Gretz' area code for all things football.

I like that Mark Donovan turned his back on Scooter, and essentially we probably have Mark Donovan to thank for talking in Clark's ear for his buddy Andy Reid. So unsung hero of it all where are all things considered today might go to him.

Mark Donovan was like the inside man for SOC.

I'd like to send him a care package.

this, I believe is true -- mark donovan and a few others in the existing staff perhaps made light to clarky of the reality scooter isn't going to bring in anybody but the mangini's of the planet, having run through his short list of coaches & staffs rather quickly.

I wouldn't "sing" about anything Chiefs just yet. Jamaal & Bowe -- that we know we got. The defense can be up & down, but tends to get going later as the season rolls, but without offense ... yadayadayada.

they have the best QB group since trINT & co, so there's that. If they can get 2/3's trINT from Alex Smurf then we'll see a 9 - 6 team and maybe a post season "that was awful" performance. You know. The usual Chiefs "good season".
