A blackout for the funeral of Arrowhead.

If this continues to build, a coordinated effort with each successive game.

Keep the message clean enough to appeal to the masses. For example a "blackout" where fans attending the game all wear black as a reminder to Clark of what will happen to attendance if this team continues its course.

I also think its important to keep a message of general player support. We still (mostly) love the guys out there playing their hearts out. I get the need to single Cassel out, but ultimately I want the players to realize we support them and this is directed at the FO. I think that will be more likely to appeal to the masses.

I definitely agree but it really seems like our players dont even care anymore...they know. theyre not ****ing stupid. theyre not gonna give it 110% for a shit qb like cassel. this season is over for us already

How about next we get a crop duster to fly over Arrowhead and drop 60,000 candy wrappers on the field.

For both home games so far this season fans have tweeted pics of Clark in the Parking lot at their tailgate.

Anyone at the game keep an eye out for him to show him the banner. :LOL:

This is just ****ing awesome.

Hey PR people on twitter are asking if they can donate cash. Suggestions on what to tell them?

Oh I know. The entire team is a mess. But its not like the fanbase wants another roster flush like the Herm era.

But I think a secondary message that we still support the players (Cassel excluded) has the best chance of garnering the most fan support. Even the most diehard fans might find it easier to rail against Crennel, Pioli, and Hunt if they feel like they aren't turning their back on guys like Charles, Hali, and Berry.

If the goal is for this movement to have the loudest voice, you have to have a message that the majority of fans are willing to speak.

Maybe we will get an avalanche of n00bs... Hopefully truefans and we can educate on the value of the QB position in the modern NFL. :)

We'd be in for $10. I know it's not a lot, but husband is furloughed again, so it's all we can budget in at the moment and we both love the idea.

This why CP shouldn't be the rallying point. This place is not suited for mass consumption.

better than walkouts, etc would be a brown bag deal like Cleveland fans used to do. Something that is visible and gets on tv (hopefully). So what, people walk out all the time - not enough visibility. And no one will ever know concession sales are down.

yep, walkouts and boycotts don't work. (at least for getting attention, obviously businesses might respond to boycotts) You need something visible, that doesn't require sound (since a reporter will be talking over you anyway, and writers will want to paint a picture). So, flying banners work as would similar, visual, ideas.

Broke as hell right now, but will hopefully be able to donate some if we do it again for the Raiders game.

I like BENCH CASSEL/FIRE PIOLI...simple & to the point.

Oh and I just want to say, this site is freakin awesome! Proud to be a member here too for 4 years, wish I joined sooner. By far the best forum on the interwebz.

Holy shit....

Mad Props, Chiefs fans. Especially you pr_capone.

This is perfect idea to get things started. I don't think this team has hit bottom yet, so there's still time left to go dirty.
I would not post chiefsplanet.com on the banner/billboard. Might only be me but, many who support the team may not understand "Go fist your Grandma" and "Die in a AIDS fire" in the threads linked from the first page of the Lounge.
