Store Offering 50% Off Chiefs Gear Until Scott Pioli Is Fired


The “Save Our Chiefs” group isn’t the only KC fan group letting it be known that they want GM Scott Pioli to be fired.

Sports Time, a store in Wichita, Kansas, is currently offering 50 percent off all Chiefs merchandise until the team either wins another game, or Scott Pioli is fired.

The store posted the following message on its website:

Sports Time Fan Shop is frustrated with the Chiefs just like all the fans are. So, until the Chiefs win another game or Pioli is fired this year, all Chiefs apparel is 50% OFF each and every day!

You have to hand it to the folks at Sports Time. This is a pretty brilliant marketing move. You’ve got to believe that sales on Chiefs gear are way down, perhaps even non-existent. How many people out there are running to the store to get Matt Cassel jerseys? If someone gave you a Peyton Hillis jersey for Christmas, would you slap them?

Probably.

Sports Time is not only finding a way to move some unmovable merchandise, but they are also taking advantage of the growing swell of fan anger.

It’s the American way, folks.

For Pioli’s sake, he better hope the sale ends soon. Thanks to a win, of course.

    1. Pioli is going no where and because of that no good HC is coming here, not now, tomorrow, or 2013.
    2. Pioli found the pre-season hype about the Chiefs – AMUSING.
    3. Great marketing ploy by a store who cannot give Hunt’s Chiefs gear away. Read where a season ticket holder would not give up his tickets, something called ticket exchange. Well if the Chiefs continue to finish the year like they started it, he will need to attach a $20.00 with each ticket he gives away.
    4. Notice nothing has happened, not one firing or hiring from the byweek. i submit nothing is going to happen until the bitter end. AND maybe not until after the 2013 season ends.

      Oh come on TM. I know you trend on the pessimistic side but do you really think Pioli has a prayer of keeping his job? I’d be shocked if Hunt kept him.

        Might re-think this, Routt is cut so there is no depth at CB and Crennel, who as HC could not find his way out of the rain, gives up DC Pioli does a interview with Lenny and he is amused.
        No PIoli is here til the end of his contract. If Crennel can win 4 games, he probably stays also. And I will be “pessimistic” and say Cassel is the starting QB in 2013 and first pick a defensive player, maybe no QB taken in entire draft.
        I believe it is not all that pessimistic rather just what Clark is all about. Nothing personal, just business.

      I’m with you on all but the first one there is no way he is still around this time next year.

    It’s too bad they don’t offer online sales!

    The sale will last until the last football snap of this season. If they haven’t fired anyone yet I would say Clark is just going to wait until the seasons end. If I were him I would want his scouting report on all the college players early from Scott that way I could compare and contrast Pioli’s thoughts with my new GM’s thoughts and would see how closely they align or how far apart they were. You may as well milk whatever work you can out of the guy while he is still under contract and the season is lost. Two opinions are always better than one in most cases.
    I would also use the players Scott picked as an interview tool for my new GM. I would ask them what they thought of the players that were on Pioli’s scouting report. I think the most important aspect of a new GM though is by enlarge catering to the (new) head coach by getting him what he needed and wanted. Not micromanaging every aspect of the entire organization from candy wrappers to the quarterback.

    I’m shocked that no one was fired this weekend.

  • Brandon Mecham

    I think pioli stays until they are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. Then he’s gone.
