I have always heard that Clark was "competitive". Almost everyone who knows him personally and speaks to the media about him eventually uses that adjective. So far as I am concerned, Clark's actions over the past few days speak to his desire to field a competitive team and I believe him to be a person who wants to win. He also must have a slight streak of "totally malicious vindictive asshole" in him, because castrating Dr. Evil in public then hauling him around as part of the HCIS (head coach interview squad) was kinda mean (although in retrospect, I really like it).

Difficult to read. Competitive. Wealthy and willing to spend cash. Doesn't meddle. Mean as hell.

The perfect owner.

You go, Clark!

Time will tell, but I sort of believe Pioli is going to be the guy who turned Clark into the owner we all want him to be. I think Pioli was one expensive... but necessary... lesson that Clark needed to learn.

The problem with this organization has long been accountability. There seems to be a parallel universe in this fanbase -- some folks think the Hunt's are just peachy keen for being great businessmen while others hate the fact they have paid in so much for so little.
And some, like myself, see how they have managed and mismanaged their other teams and see that there is a pattern. If they are making money or, not bleeding it, the status quo (no matter how miserable) is cool beans and if they aren't then things seem to get done.

Even if Andy Reid turns out to be a bad hire after several years. I admire Clark Hunt as a man who cares about the Chiefs and the fans. He gets an A+ for effort. He went out of his way to get the best coach he sees fit to lead the Chiefs got the kind of coach he said he wanted to get. Clark Hunt took action as soon as the season was over when he could do something about it.

There's probably a great amount of truth to that, Mr. Coogs. Dr. Evil was a major swing and a miss for Clark. Major.

As for Reid, I think I might have gone another way with the hire, but I can definitely understand why Clark made that choice. This franchise is completely screwed up at this juncture. Everywhere you look, there's dysfunction and abject failure. There's no pride, no confidence, and no quarterback. Reid brings with him the ability to change that and, if he hits on the QB, pretty successfully, too.

But, if nothing else, Clark has completely dispelled the myth that he is cheap and uncaring ... nobody, other than the true knuckleheads, can claim that any longer.

I'm not a big fan of simply applauding effort. I'm a results oriented person. Having said that, Clark is a relatively young owner, who seems to be learning as he goes and willing to make changes which is tantamount to admitting his mistakes. That makes him bold and humble in my book.

Will Reid work out? I'd say the odds are quite good actually. He's proven, and struggled the last couple of seasons in a city where the hatred makes the SOC movement look tame. He needs a change of scenery IMO, and he'll get great scenery here in KC. The Chiefs needed a bold move, and Clark delivered again. He gets an "A" for effort, and there's a lot to be said for that. Now we must watch what happens. Clark should get kudos for this move, and he gets plenty from me. He certainly could have made a "safer" move, but this shit is bold. The cost in money and credibility hang in the balance, and Clark cares not. That is a fine owner right there. I'm very optimistic, but I gotta see results.

This is a great day to be a Chiefs fan though. Bring on the draft. WE AT LEAST HAVE HOPE AGAIN! GO CHIEFS!!

I had my doubts when he didn't fire Pioli on Monday. He ate a lot of money to get the fanbase back. Whether you like the hire or not Clark can't be criticized much.

Call me a "true fan", but I think Clark just scored a touchdown with Reid & Co. I'm gonna stand up and cheer.

I've mentioned this before, but to me the most intriguing thing Clark said during the 2013 Dr. Evil Castration Media Tour was in response to a question about Clark's reputation (or perception, really) as a cheapskate.

Clark said this (and I paraphrase as best I can); "We had the 3rd highest cash payroll in the league last year. But, based on the results on the field, that isn't something I'm very proud of."

That, my friend, is an ass-kicking statement from your owner. And, frankly, I'm surprised it didn't get more traction around the city. He's saying he'll spend money but he expects something in return and gets pissed off when he's basically taken for a fool.

Then, of course, because no one else seems to be able to do so, he proceeds to take it upon himself to fix the problem.

There's more to Clark than meets the eye. We should be damn happy to have him.

Someone who hadn't already been beaten to hell and gone by the trials and tribulations of life and football. A Todd Haley type, actually. Or a 15 years ago Andy Reid.

Such a person would be unproven, though, and that's not what Clark wants. I imagine he wants someone with sufficient gravitas to quite down the hoards and demand respect from the players. He found that in Reid ... no question.
