Kansas City Mayor Sly James told The Associated Press he spoke to Pioli after the incident. He refused to discuss the general manager's emotional state, but the mayor said Pioli was "extremely concerned that fans of this team are not disappointed and not left in the cold."
"I think they think there's an obligation to the people of this city, the fans of the team and the fans of the other team to play the game," James said.
Imagine that, a politician not wanting to lose revenue. WOW this surprises me.
