PR, I like your messages to Matt pioli etc. You should write one for Romeo as well.

Something to the effect of, if you are supporting cassel's failure then we want you gone. If you are being forced, know that we fans want you to put the best people on the field to play. We fans want to you succeed Romeo, but you arent. All we have to go on is that scoreboard and what you tell us in your interviews. And right now you arent looking like a good Coach. If you are being forced, then do what YOU need to for our team to win. If you arent being forced, then thanks for trying but you are failing

Please keep it simple. Please don't make me want to distance myself from this cause or regret donating. I loved the banner, I loved the enthusiasm, but some of the crap that's getting posted (here, there, everywhere) seems like we're just reaching for some new dig at them. We've got their attention, now let's use it for good please. You can be positive and still get your message across.

We still deserve better.

I agree sir, and I dont plan on posting his address on open forum, as I would be afraid that some people would embarrass our cause, I just thought that if we could find out what private airport that Hunt Sports Group has a hangar at that we can come up with a location that Clark will see EVERY time he flies to any game of any of his teams, and the more people that might be looking for that info the better

I honestly do not believe that targeting Clark in Dallas is going to be of any use. The single banner we flew in Arrowhead has his attention. Of that I am sure.

The reason to keep flying things over Arrowhead will be if he has not responded to us before the Raiders game. We are essentially giving him 3 weeks to talk to us and let us know he cares. If he doesn't... then Phase 2 comes into effect.

This is the key here folks. This is really what the goal and the prize of this whole effort is. It isn't to hold Matt responsible for being a terrible starting QB. There is nothing he can do about it. Pioli coming to talk to us would be nice, but in the end... his time in KC is short if fans have anything to say about it.

It is all about Clark. We want to know that our owner still cares. We need him to let us know that everything is going to be ok. He needs to acknowledge that we are tired of being a laughing stock in the NFL and meaningless AFCW titles are not going to cut it.

One word from Hunt could possibly change EVERYTHING for both the team and for we fans. If we don't hear back from him... we are going to keep flying banners and getting the word out to the point where either he can no longer afford to ignore us. End result will be loss of STH and hundreds if not thousands of fans will no longer support this club financially.

Clark... talk to us. Let us know you care.

Mr. Flopnuts 10-08-2012 07:42 PM

I'll probably be bannee from their Facebook page. I cussed them out, called them passive aggressive assholes and told them to get a clue. It's their choice to play a mediocre QB.

kcgreene 10-08-2012 07:45 PM

I understand your thoughts, and I know you are leading this effort, but I have to respectfully disagree. I wouldn't do anything for the next 3 weeks, I agree with that, as it gives him time to respond and with the media the way it is right now, however, at that point that nothing is done, its going to take more than flying banners, social marketing and being pissed on talk radio to get real change.

I'm not saying we need to go on the offensive, but I just think that it would be smart to consider this as a possibility, because you want something that will serve as a constant reminder to him, especially when he spends minimal time in Kansas City. I'm not saying that it should be disrespectful, Im just saying that it can be a very professional sign that just says something along the lines of "Dear Mr. Hunt, Please fire Scott. Sincerely, Chiefs Fans" Or something like that. Classy, but gets the point across. Its easy for Clark to leave KC and not care. I'm not saying that he doesn't care, but if weeks pass and nothing happens... we might have to wonder...

That is where I am heading. Right now, there is a bit of a waiting game happening and we need to give Clark time so process and hopefully get back to us either at the saveourchiefs@cox.net or through the kcchiefs website.

We need to hear from him. That is what it boils down to. His response, or lack of, will dictate what we do next.

Updated OP

I am happy to heed your suggestions BUT. I flat refuse to put out any message that is not in the spirit of what we are trying to accomplish. A lot of the suggestions that we have here are ridiculously over the top and are not helpful in the least. If anything, they are counter productive. Remember that there are a lot of eyes on us right now watching what we are doing and what we are saying. It is all well and good to let CP be what it is but there is a time and a place for that... and that is every thread but this one.

We need to be taken seriously and acting like immature asshats isn't going to do a damn thing to help us accomplish that.

I didn't donate, and I'm not on saveourchiefs.com (although I feel like I am by coming into this thread). However, if I were to have a say, this would be it.

As of right now... I just want people thinking about this and what message they want to put out. Honestly, I won't even begin to sort through these until Thursday or Friday... possibly even Sunday.

Unlike what my post count and my presence around CP the past week might indicate... I have both a full time job and am a full time student.

Gents and Lady Gents. I have returned home and have reviewed Twitter. 6.5 hours ago we put out alert about the posts and apologized. Since then I have reviewed every tweet, all 8 of them and they are fine.

A lot of the complaints that are surfacing now are the result of the barrage of retarded tweets from yesterday and early this morning. We're going thru and deleting stuff as best we can.

Going forward you can expect professional tweets. If anyone feels that a tweet crosses the line, please CONTACT ME at SaveOurChiefs@gmail so I can address the issue.

Not trying to be an a-hole, but what about something like...

"January 16, 1993 ... 19 years later. SaveOurChiefs.com"

Pick some milestone moments - Key memories or moments from past eras of greatness and run with that theme. A trip down memory lane. Maybe focus on the dominance of the 90's and carry that theme in your messages. My guess is that outside of "I'm a KC fan because of location and family ... many of you fell in love with them because of their dominace in the 90s. Most of the 70s and 80s were kinda like the last few.

You've got a decade of dominance there ... that's what you're fighting to back to, so maybe that's your theme.

Marty Mac Ver 2.0 is doing fb and twitter SOC

Wendler is running youtube SOC and, of course, .gif master supreme.

The staff of chiefsplanet.com and some others are serving as general advisors.

We thought about flying a banner over Tampa but in the end, feel like it wouldn't do enough good. We are definitely going to fly another banner over Arrowhead but it will be on 10/28 against the Raiders. There are are few suggestions being tossed around. We have some time and I'll be making a poll to get ideas from CP. In the mean time, I wanted to give you an idea of what we have done so far donations and spending wise.

The cost of the banner was obvious... we all knew that was going to happen. We are also, unless anyone has any strong feelings against it, are going to spend $50 on ads on FB to drive attention to saveourchiefs.com.\

We have plenty of time to come up with the slogan for the next banner. There is one thing that must absolutely be on the banner and that is the saveourchiefs.com address that AustinChief provided us with. I am looking for suggestions, I know there are already 50k spread through this thread but I cannot go digging around for then. The only banner suggestions that will be considered are ones that end in saveourchiefs.com. The banner cannot exceed 42 characters, spaces not included.

EXAMPLES:
PAY BOWE - DRAFT GENO - SAVEOURCHIEFS.COM
CLARK, R U A FAN OR NOT? - SAVEOURCHIEFS.COM

I have asked a small group of people to help sort through banner ideas since there will be eleventybillion ideas thown out. We are going to narrow it down to our top X favorite ideas, then let CP vote on it.

As for donations status and expenditures:

Expenditures:
Banner #1 - $625.00
Ads on FB - $50.00

Current PayPal balance - $1,600.71
Check from Whitlock - $600
Balance - $2,200.71 (will update OP when check clears)


[/spoiler]

Yes. Something involving drafting Geno would be awesome!

If I may, & this prolly all goes without saying. I got to thinking what Egoli & Clark would do to perhaps retaliate.

One of them or perhaps a cronie could apply some heat on the airplane outfit. I know with trucking the Government does surprise audits checking anything from truckers' log books to files concerning safety checks' of equipment & any & all necessary repairs'. Also an inspection of equipment on the spot unannounced.

It may be insulting to the airplane company to even suggest they cross all their t's & dot all the i's. They very well may run a tight ship in that sector of aviation, I have no clue. It just wouldn't be a bad idea in case some of these officials can be bought with season tickets.

RockChalk 10-09-2012 07:14 AM

I'm not adding anything that hasn't been said by other members, but thought I'd throw my two cents in...

It's been said above, and probably better worded in the updated OP by PR, but there is no reason to take any of this in a negative direction. Some of the 10/28 banner suggestions have been incredibly negative. While some of those negative suggestions have been funny, most have been ridiculously stupid.

I believe we made our point with the first banner, while being critical of team management, but not outright hateful towards any part of the Chiefs organization. We merely stated what 75% of Chiefs fans were thinking (probably more like 95% as the Baltimore game progressed). We fans do deserve better, and it's become more and more evident that Pioli has no business managing this organization. And we stated that.

In my opinion the next banner should either be pointed towards the fans or directly at Clark Hunt. There was an earlier suggestion regarding having the NFL's best fans and worst management. I think something along those lines is appropriate. Anyways, just my two cents.

Marty Mac Ver 2.0 10-09-2012 07:30 AM

What if we flew two banners at the Raiders game? One to pump up the players and the other to chump out Pioli?

DJ's left nut 10-09-2012 09:01 AM

Stanley had a cool idea - what if we can use the banner to actually create a fan revolt?

Not just words, but actions. He suggested nobody wearing red to the games - I think that's pretty badass. What if we threw up a banner that said something like "Brown out Arrowhead". Has PR spoken w/ enough media people at this point that he could get the message out that fans that are disgusted with crap like the all out assault of Chiefs fans should just wear brown/black to the games until Pioli jets.

It would need a coordinated media/social media blitz behind it, but it would be a freakin' awesome visual if we can get half that stadium clad in brown or black for the rest of the season.

A couple more losses and people will really start to puke. Then you bust out the STOP WEARING RED banner.

Let's say we're 1-8 or 2-7 3-6 after the road trip to Pittsburgh.

Hit them then with STOP WEARING RED at the Cincy game, and you've got two more home games after that, in a row, where people could stop wearing red.

You could also pump out the STOP WEARING RED message on social media during the 2-game road trip to SD and PIT.

That is going to be the breaking point for a lot of people because those games are gonna be brutal and will end ANY hope of a playoff appearance. We'll be 3-6 at best.

Love the Blackout....Arizona State has been successful with using the Blackout approach to fill the seats for football but we can create a similar experience.

black out would rule.

though ALL CAPS DEB would stick out like a sore thumb.


at this point, I wouldn't even care if a New GM came here, drafted Geno, and changed the uniforms to black.

This idea would send shockwaves throughout the ENTIRE NFL. A stronger message could not be delivered to ownership, the league and players.

damn you to hell KU!
but I like this one too! it's just a tad too long though. it'd have to be shortened to 42...something like below which is kinda all squished together.
42 is just too short.

Well, besides not going..... but, a blackout is more realistic than a walkout or trying to keep people from showing up at all.


That pic is creepy... I like it.

Dayze 10-09-2012 09:53 AM

I'd feel like a Raider fan. Ugh.

The blackout thing sounds like a cool idea, but you'd have to be careful of the language. My first reaction was that you were talking about not going to games to cause a "blackout."

Hammock Parties 10-09-2012 10:17 AM

**** Pioli.

@SaveOurChiefs

The Chiefs FO was invited to go on Mike & Mike on ESPN to defend the fan base about the Cassel situation and they declined.

Cave Johnson 10-09-2012 10:20 AM

Seriously, y'all need to tighten up the message. Basically the consensus of non-true fans is to do what it takes to draft the #1 QB (presumably Smith).

Ergo, "Tank for Smith - Saveourchiefs.com"

The Franchise 10-09-2012 10:22 AM

**** this front office. Are you serious?

I thought the same thing. Maybe something like: "franchise funeral wear all black 10/28"

Absolutely - I think you'd need a corresponding media blitz. Soren, KK, Parkins, Fescoe, etc... would need to give it a voice. Additionally, the social media stuff would need to have some impact.

We have an away game and a bye week to give it legs. Blacking out Arrowhead for a Raiders game would be a staggeringly strong message and you can bet that it will be heard.

I like the 'Franchise Funeral' language.

I'm liking this more and more than anything else.

If we start it now and keep pounding, by the three-game homestand later in the year it might actually happen en masse.

Marty Mac Ver 2.0 10-09-2012 10:29 AM

Just tell people to "Blackout Arrowhead by wearing BLACK Chiefs fan gear" Send the message and build it that way to educate the ones who are easily confused.

Marty Mac Ver 2.0 10-09-2012 10:31 AM

The cool thing with the blackout concept is that it can grow with each passing game. Raider fans will love this.
