Is The Criticism Of Kansas City Chiefs Owner Clark Hunt Fair?

Hunt is taking a lot of heat these days. Not just from AA writers, but the national media as well. Is it deserved?

Recently Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt has come under some scrutiny for his across the board organizational pay cuts. Yahoo’s Mike Silver and Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio have each singled out Hunt for criticism. Silver called Hunt’s pay cuts, given the fact that the team is seeing an uptick in season ticket sales, “unconscionable.” Florio went so far as to call for Hunt to rescind the pay cuts. Arrowhead Addict’s own Big Matt also turned in a piece just yesterday criticizing Hunt.

The topic is was a hot one around here yesterday so I decided to hold an official poll to find out what Chiefs Nation thinks of Hunt’s decision to slash pay of coaches and other team personnel. It is not clear if the team is yet being hurt financially by the lockout, though as mentioned above, it has seen a rise in season ticket sales.
