How'd that #1 offense work for you on Sunday?

I'm in for $40, one catch though I don't have paypal but I'll send a money order for it.
The message is great.

I'm in for $50, but I'd really like to see some sort of ChiefsPlanet recognition on the sign, if possible.

Dude it looks like this is actually going to happen.

Nickel D 10-01-2012 01:57 PM

To get rid of the evidence as well as ensure Pioli gets the message, I highly recommend the banner be ditched under a stairwell at Arrowhead along with dozens of candy bar wrappers.

KCUnited 10-01-2012 01:58 PM

Brush up on your tv/radio interview skills, they'll come a callin'.

San Diego is alot better than I thought they'd be. And did you see that Cassel is now the franchise leader in yards thigh four games?

mr. tegu 10-01-2012 02:00 PM

You know, I think the best thing about this is that it shows how much Chiefs fans care about the team, more so than most any other fanbase out there. You don't see or hear about this kind of thing in Jacksonville, Cleveland, or Buffalo. It is in our blood to be Chiefs fans and we just have to be so when we have to deal with such obvious flaws for this long, we want improvement. Other cities fanbases just stop going but that is not what we want. We WANT and NEED to go to games and cheer for the team.

Just like when Cano got booed relentlessly, us Royals fans showed we were passionate about the team and Butler getting snubbed after Cano's lie.

Not really... they are doing block lettering and chiefsplanet.com adds quite a bit of length + cost.

When I get in contact with media, I will make sure to point them to the site where this started.

PS... WE HAVE ENOUGH TO DO THIS. I'll get on the ball with the airline people and let them know this is a go. Don't stop donating though... we can run the same banner mult times or if they do finally bench Kasl, we can then put funds towards a billboard.

Hey, if you guys come up with some money for a cheap plane, I'll take one for the team as far as crashing into Pioli's box is concerned.

You are assuming Pioli isn't monitoring the Planet either himself or having some lackey do it for him. If Babb is correct and he reads and listens to everything because he is all worried about his image, Scott likely already knows.

I've seen and been apart of the Planet making its voice heard. You don't need to sell me on our capabilities.

alnorth 10-01-2012 02:48 PM

Even if Cassel is benched after this weekend's game, I bet we could easily cover the extra $65 it would take to update the banner to focus only on Pioli.

edit: or for that matter, part of the message in the OP could be hacked off starting with the dash

007 10-01-2012 02:51 PM

Hmmmm, what if they actually bench Cassel before Sunday if he sucks shit all week in practice?

KCDC 10-01-2012 02:51 PM

It is an inspired idea, but I agree that a protest outside of One Arrrowhead (with a tip to the media) would be more effective. To be truely effective, the banner would need to be done during the game and picked up on TV.

If you are going to do a banner, I would delete the point about firing Pioli. That isn't going to happen this year. You turn Pioli against us as well. If you just call for the replacement of Cassel (and maybe RAC), then Pioli can get behind it more easily (as can Clark Hunt). Though Casshole has been seen as Pioli's golden boy, if there is a fan riot, he can use that as an excuse to agree with Hunt to select a QB in the first round next year.

Pioli's failings have been the 2009 draft, as seeing Cassel with ill-founded rose colored glasses. Otherwise, he has drafted fairly well and has done okay with recent free agent signings. His selection of RAC as head coach is understandable. I supported it at the time. Now it is clear that it was a mistake.

Again, Pioli does not get fired this year (regardless of what Babb and Mellinger chant). It is better to focus on getting rid of the most important failing of the organization -- Cassel. The second biggest failing, I hate to say, is Crennel. Focus on the most important and don't dilute the message by spreading the hate too broadly.

ForeverChiefs58 10-01-2012 02:53 PM

How about a "Draft Geno!" banner?

007 10-01-2012 02:54 PM

It's too bad that Clark and Scott will think one single guy fronted teh money for that rather than a bunch of fans

There is very, very little in this post that I agree with.

Protest party, either in a park (as someone else suggested) or in the parking lot, wont get covered. Media wont be interested in a bunch of yelling drunken yahoos. A plane banner is more sexy, and far more likely to get written about.

Cassel will be gone soon even if we don't do a damned thing. Maybe the banner gets him out sooner, but its a lost season and we don't have a back-up worth a damn, so the only real goal here is to have someone else, other than Pioli, pick our next QB, and that message has to be made now and loud enough for Clark to see it.

If the local media pick it up and run with it, it'll be interesting to see if they help spread the word on other activities. Fly a banner next week, plan a walkout for the Raiders game, brown bag day, etc... :hmmm:

Reerun_KC 10-01-2012 03:01 PM

Banner during the game is a security and safety risk. Also no pilot would violate a no fly zone. Federal offense.

Who gives a shit about Pioli's feelings. He should be hurt by this banner. That's the point. He hasn't given a shit about our feelings. If he did, he'd do what it takes to get us the players to win.
