Former Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli may be gone but he is back in the headlines as he is testifying in an age discrimination suit concerning the team.
The Chiefs are being sued by former a former employee by the name of Steve Cox. Mr. Cox claims he was the victim of age discrimination and wants the Chiefs to pay him damages. He was the maintenance manager for the Chiefs.
Here is some video of day one of the trial:
On day two, Pioli took the stand. He was asked about the now infamous candy wrapper and the report also mentions Pioli testifying about some detailed demands that Mr. Cox had to deal with, including in an incident concerning a ball of hair found on the floor and doors slamming to hard. The video also shows an email that mentions Pioli pointing out stains on the ceiling in the practice facility.
Brenda Sniezek, another former employee that is suing the Chiefs, also testified yesterday and claimed that she felt Pioli was always asking her age.
I am ind of sad that we are just finding out about Pioli and the hairball now. As hilarious as the whole candy wrapper thing is, this stuff about him worrying about a ball of hair is even funnier.
For the life of me, I can’t figure out why the Scott Pioli regime didn’t work out. (sarcasm font)
