That's an easier transgression to rally around.

Finally, social media has matured quite a bit in the past decade. ChiefsPlanet was around for the later Carl years of course, but things didn't "go viral" to the same extent back then. While CP is driving this whole deal, it's fueled by the idea that enough attention to it will help to drive the fanbase's furor well beyond the Planet.
To do what? Yes we get it Fire Pioli, and Bench Cassel but what's that going to accomplish other than Crennel getting more power over personnel decisions ( ) in the offseason while Quinn/Stanzi go into full blown suck mode during this one?

The reality is that the Chiefs have an underachieving roster (except for Charles, Houston and maybe Hali), with a HC doubling as a DC as the defense gives up huge chunks of points and yardage, hit and miss WRs, an average OL, and an average QB.

Who do you think had a bigger hand in bringing in Quinn to KC? Crennel or Pioli?
