The Chiefs' Back to Desperation Kickoff Rally Bash

I was elated when I first heard the news of the Chiefs holding their second-annual open practice — or, as the team referred to it as, the "Back to Football Bash" — this Wednesday last. Last year's version included a tour of Arrowhead's finer suites (albeit run by yours truly), a spirited practice, and a should-have-been-had-it-not-been-for-locked-doors-and-blocked-off-exits run-in with team owner, Clark Hunt, and general manager, Scott Pioli. Fun was had.

This year? Not so much.

The Patriot Way takes all the fun out of it

I have to get something off my chest — I don't love the Chiefs anymore. And it has nothing to do with my dedication as a fan.

Pioli's pants: revisited

Yesterday I made the case that Chiefs' GM Scott Pioli has essentially been caught with his pants down this free-agency period because of a lack of effort and/or financial commitment from ownership to improve the team. Much to my surprise, I was met with a school of Pioli yes-men and Chief system-protectors who couldn't bare the sight of their fearless leader being shed in such negative light.

Let's examine the facts.

Pioli's pants are down

I've taken a break from the blog this summer so I could digest the Royals as a fan only. It's been great, but I think I've held my tongue long enough.

Scott Pioli's blowing it.
