Dear Mr. Hunt,
It's been a long season, sir, since I was told to "Get a Clue" on Twitter. lol. It's been a long 4 years... Quite frankly, it's been a long 40 years. I know I've been a pain in your ass this year. But we KC fans have some passion. Just look at the All Star Game crowds and Sporting KC this year. SKC season tickets are already sold out. Rabid, rabid fanbase here in KC.
Lots of things are broken, Mr. Hunt. I know you respect Mr. Pioli and we commend you for going out and getting "the best GM on paper", 4 years ago. Unfortunately, he's a controlling asshole and his results have been less than stellar. Running a business like a mafia don may fly when you are winning, but not when you are historically bad, like 1929 Buffalo Bisons bad.
Is the atmosphere around the Chiefs a more pleasant, more productive one for players or employees, under Scott Pioli?
I've talked with many former players and they aren't welcomed out at Arrowhead. How does that make CURRENT players feel? There is no family. The old players are shunned. Where are the current player foundations? Where are the TV and Radio shows? That stuff connects the fans to the team. According to this analysis, the Chiefs are nearly last in fan communications, as well. http://mashable.com/2012/12/04/dalla...l-infographic/
The fans respectfully toned down the messaging after the Belcher episode, as that was a tough scenario, as we truly love and care about the team. You guys handled that tough situation well and with class. That was horrible.
But, Pioli still has to go. Besides, all of the 2012 team's stars are from the Carl/Herm era. And all of them will get the **** out of town as soon as their contracts are up, if Pioli stays. Believe that. Especially for a traumatized team. If Pioli stays, we could become historically bad, as inept as the Raiders during the last decade of Al Davis' life. And as a result, you'll most likely be more reviled than the Royals, David Glass.
Please get someone like Marc Ross of the Giants as GM and Chip Kelly of Oregon as HC. Show KC that you care, Clark. If Pioli is retained, Rome will burn. I've had 7 people tell they'd start rooting for the Broncos, because at least Pat Bowlen cares enough about the team and the fans to create winning atmosphere. Clark, they'd start rooting for the ****ing Broncos!
This whole thing sucks, Mr. Hunt. But, as the Chairman of "The Hunt Family Football Corporation in Kansas City", it's your responsibility to fire it's "CEO". Please. For. the. love. of. God. This is a crucial crossroads, my friend. Let's change the vibe of Chiefs football in 2013!!
The Chiefs have a strong community of supporters and we demand championship caliber football. And the "Patriot Way" is no longer wanted in KC. Please respect our wishes. :-D We just want to win.
