If Things Don’t Change They Remain The Same


Arrowhead Anxiety! Change in the Chiefs front office! Former employees express displeasure at the organization! Thirty year employees let go!

It’s news nobody including your Arrowhead Adventurer likes to hear.

But the truth of the matter is, we haven’t been to a Superbowl in over forty years. And once again the Chiefs end a season with a losing record and no clear plan that this Arrowhead Adventurer knows of to change much. Maybe the employees that have been with the company when it doesn’t succeed should be replaced by employees who might help the company achieve its goals.

So I read the  Kent Babb article with a mixture of sadness, empathy, but also excitement.

Scott Pioli is serious about change!

A candy wrapper was left lying for a week? That’s a long time. Our office cleaning staff does a better job than that.

An employee parked in the bosses spot and forgot about it? What else does this employee forget to do? Respect was not shown. That’s a mistake that should not have been made.

Former employees are upset with the organization. What former employees aren’t? Especially former employees that became former employees before they had planned.

Pioli comes from the New England school of football. It’s a controversial, no non-nonsense, secretive organization. And it’s an organization that wins.

For forty years, the Kansas City Chiefs have been an organization that loses.

Maybe, Addicts, it’s time for big change in Kansas City.  I, for one am tired of the same old thing year after year. Scott Pioli appears to be making sure that big change happens.
