As of right now, we can only afford the pregame. I prefer pregame though as that is when the largest numbers of Chiefs fans will be there. Half of the already half-empty stadium will be out the door by the end of the 3rd quarter and they have to wait for an hour after the game ends before they are able to fly there again.

Unfortunately not... it is not going to be a solid banner like you would see with a McDonalds ad. It is gonna be clear ribbing with black bold faced letters.

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.


I agree too

Warpaint69 10-02-2012 07:20 AM

Fescoe just quickly mentioned the banner flying on 610 sports. He then went on to say the true message of fan disapproval will be heard when the fans stop showing up.

There should be a banner at every home game until we see some real changes. And after that, we fly a banner that says: ***** YEW CARL!:cuss:

My reply to them:

Understood. I figured that since you showed the fans in Denver
begging for Tebow with banners and such that the same kind of thing
happening in Kansas City, a fan base known for their loyalty, would be
of interest to you... the only difference being that this time around
the name Tebow wouldn't get to be said 83 times in a single episode of
Sports Center. Gotcha.
