I will not pull any punches. I am NOT a fan of Pioli and do not want him here at all. This Patriot Way experiment has been an unmitigated disaster, both on the field and off the field.
On the field, we have the WORST team in the NFL and have been simply awful. The stars on this team were brought in my Herm and Company. Pioli has had mediocre drafts at best, has refused to draft a QB in his 4 years (Ricky does not count), has not made good decisions with the HC position and made the decision to stake his reputation on Matt C.
Off the field this regime has simply been a PR disaster. Not only has the team lost, this regime has driven even the most hard core fans away in droves.They have a terrible reputation in the NFL as a place to work and have just as bad a reputation in the KC area.
I can only speak for me, if Pioli is retained, I will write a letter to Clark and tell him he did what I thought was impossible, he will have turned me away from being a Chiefs fan and I have been one my entire life...BAR NONE! If he keeps Pioli the message he is sending me as a fan is that as an owner he is not worried about winning, he is concerned about other things. That is certainly his choice as an owner, my choice as a PAYING CUSTOMER is 'I will not longer buy your CRAPPY product'. It is indeed a CRAPPY product, no playoff wins since 1993 in a league where parity is the rule.
I am sure some of you will tell me I am a bandwagon fan or tell me good riddance. That is your choice. To me being a fan does not mean continuing to pour my support in to any product when the owner of said product is satisfied with producing a bad product...year after year.
In my opinion, Clark's legacy with the majority of fans hangs in the balance. Your move Mr. Hunt.
