I just created a paypal acct for this. They can donate to

saveourchiefs@cox.net

Make sure they mark it as personal - gift.

teedubya 10-01-2012 08:08 PM

If we REALLY want to do something big for the next phase of SaveOurChiefs... we could do an Indiegogo.com or a Kickstarter to fund a project with help from ALL OF Chiefs Nation.

It doesn't change a single thing. It is like winning against GB last season. Where the **** did that get us?

TJR1486 10-01-2012 08:10 PM

We're not gonna take it. No!

I was thinking more along the lines of bad press but I agree with your premise.

JoeyChuckles 10-01-2012 08:14 PM

I want to donate, but since the plane is covered, I'm in for the next thing. And there has to be a next thing.

It's Arrowhead Spring.

dmahurin 10-01-2012 08:17 PM

I'm looking up billboard companies and from what I'm seeing a billboard could be had from 300 to 1000 depending on location, size, content etc.

If the fans are pissed off enough, we could raise more than Ouya. A guy can dream, anyway.

I am thinking the batch of money over the 625 could be put toward a billboard if the price is right. That could be phase 2 of the KC Purge. Flying a banner for another home game is fine, but I think it would be cool to roll out a billboard to follow up the banner if it could get done quickly enough.

Pasta Little Brother 10-01-2012 08:19 PM

Ha, would love to see the look on Cassel's face reading this.

BossChief 10-01-2012 08:21 PM

Haha

We might need to have a "PLEASE DRAFT A FIRST ROUND QUARTERBACK" one, next.

jspchief 10-01-2012 08:21 PM

What billboard companies operate in KC?

I might have a connection.

JoeyChuckles 10-01-2012 08:22 PM

Can I get a hash tag on "Arrowhead Spring"?

That cost is likely only for the usage of space, not the actual paper sign itself.

Exoter175 10-01-2012 08:25 PM

Plugged on facebook, twitter, and a number of other local community forums with the paypal info. Hopefully we can get enough donations on this drive to setup a deal for the rest of the year, or until we get our way. I know people are talking billboards right now, but it really isn't all that affordable to do so, besides news clips of a banner being flown around arrowhead are far more dramatic than a billboard on i35 or i70. PR/whoever talking to the pilot, any chance you can get a discounted rate to cover the rest of the home games this year up front? Assuming we have enough of a pool to cover it?

Rain Man 10-01-2012 08:25 PM

This is hilarious.

Would you consider going with, "Winning is everything. It's not the Pioli thing"

Pasta Little Brother 10-01-2012 08:27 PM

How much for an image of "PeeWee Cassel" on the thing?

Chiefspants 10-01-2012 08:41 PM

Nice, even his wikipedia page is starting to note his futility.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Pioli

Quote:

Pioli served as Director, and later Vice President of Player Personnel for the Patriots from 2001 to 2008 helping the Patriots franchise win three Super Bowl championships, and the NFL's only 16-0 regular season to date. However, because of the Chiefs middling success during his time with the team, his management style has received intense scrutiny from journalists and fans alike.[1]

Frazod 10-01-2012 08:45 PM

I'll shoot you $20 for this. PM me the details. :thumb:

Edit: Just saw the details are in the topic. Cash sent.

Simply Red 10-01-2012 08:45 PM

PR Capone - You're a really smart guy, excellent idea. I'll throw $20 - but let me get this $140 in that is owned for sales, so that i don't have to hit my Chase acct.

This turned out a hell of a lot more doable that the full page ad in the star I suggested right after the game that would have been around 10k.

ChiTown 10-01-2012 08:49 PM

Forget about Cassel in this banner. Go after Pioli. He is the one who deserves this.

Once Pioli is fired Cassel will be gone. Trickle down effect.

Make it simple with something like: WE DESERVE BETTER! FIRE PIOLI!

I second this, let's go after the real problem here.

Easy 6 10-01-2012 09:01 PM

Just had to say that i think this is THE coolest thing i've ever heard of here... MUCH better than a dull board that people drive by so many times that they become desensitized to it.

An actual, gameday, moving sign that cant be stopped by piolis pull & sure to gain tv coverage.

SPATCH 10-01-2012 09:03 PM

I was thinking of making a Matt Cassel novelty account on Twitter... but I'm starting to think that this guy is starting to effect my personal life a little more than is healthy.

Chiefs Pantalones 10-01-2012 09:04 PM

Lol nice. What will the banner say?

hometeam 10-01-2012 09:04 PM

Anyone want to take bets on how much Piolis minions will offer up as a bribe to the pilot?


ohhhh i hope they do and he straight tells the media~

CaliforniaChief 10-01-2012 09:05 PM

God is clearly at work, here. LMAO. Well done, PR. You have gone beyond the typical fruitless moaning of fandom and have stepped up to try and do SOMETHING to make a difference. To you and all who have donated, you represent the best of Chiefs Planet.

We could get the save our chiefs thing going and post GoChiefs Delclaration of Independence, along with other awesome stats such as blowouts etc. I think 95% of the fan base are blissfully ignorant

And we know the likes of the moronic Solomon Wilcotts and other shills for the NFL sure as **** won't mention anything truthful about the Chiefs ineptitude.

Yes thats the original tweet I sent out. 610 & Arrowhead Pride both re-tweeted it. Once Arrowhead Pride retweeted I swear about 50 others Re-tweeted it within half an hour and a handful of people were asking how do they donate lol

teedubya 10-01-2012 09:30 PM

What about we continue to get donations for a billboard NEAR the stadiums on I-70 somewhere... or I-435.

And also fund another banner. Empty Stadium Blackout Nov 18 Get a Clue

This gives us 6 weeks to prepare? Thoughts?

Dunno, but The Oatmeal dude got 1.3 million dollars to fund the Tesla Museum... I'm sure if Chiefsplanet had to come up with $5-10k for a full on campaign... I'd bet the funds would come in.

After they see the crowdsourced social grassroots campaign launch on Sunday. The Clark and Pioli may finally learn that you can't alienate your fans, your former players and field shit talent on the field year after year and get away with it without hearing from Chiefs Nation.

The owner keeps taking the Chiefs fans cash back to Dallas. Clark and his companies are getting money from the fans directly and through city, county and state taxes. Money is flowing into Texas thanks to Clarky.

And all of the Royals fans cash goes to Mr. Walmart who lives in Arkansas.

Both of our two major league owners live out of town. They don't CARE enough about KC to even LIVE in KC. And SportingKC has passionate owners and championship trophies and playoff races and excitement.

Bah ****ing humbug, Chiefs. The whole city is finally getting the clue. it's our choice, afterall.
