Mr. Scot

Puff Piece Provokes Pioli Paranoia?

4 posts in this topic

PFT had an item describing an odd little event. A Kansas City newspaper sent a reporter out to new Chiefs GM Scott Pioli's hometown for a "puff piece" talking about where he came from, how he grew up, etc. Basic human interest stuff.

Upon hearing about it, Pioli called all the people he knew and instructed them not to talk about him :confused:

The piece that ultimately emerged can be found here: Picture of Pioli emerging

It ends with these lines.

Word comes from the people of his hometown, such as Washingtonville Central School District official Sue Cooney: “We are very protective of him. We can’t say much.”

Word comes through Chiefs officials: “Scott just doesn’t want to talk about himself right now. And he doesn’t want his family to talk. It would be better if a story about him could wait a few months.”

Regardless of whether he does a good job rebuilding the Chiefs, it's pretty clear that Chief detractors who used to refer to GM Carl Peterson as "King Carl" will likely find plenty of fodder with Pioli as well.

Perhaps he thought a "puff" piece would focus on a different part of his past, if you catch my drift.

Sounds very Patriots-like. Tell as little as possible, keep everyone in the dark on everything

    • i just took this test again for shits and i got infj, whereas last year i got intj. so my thinking got flipped to feeling but it's still fairly close. other than that, i'm still an introvert but it went down from last year from 72% to 59%. i'm not really surprised because i got a job in nyc in the last year that has forced me to adapt to social interaction. other than that there were no massive changes though.
    • Jesus. A 3-4 OLB at #8? Two major off-field character concerns in the 2nd round? Another slow WR in the 3rd? Never. Gonna. Happen. There's at least a decent chance that his top three picks won't even be on our draft board. Gettleman has said numerous times in the past that guys who aren't scheme fits for us aren't on our draft board. There goes McKinley. Given our past with guys like Carruth and Hardy, there's zero chance that Mixon is on our board. Given Robinson's off-field issues involving a stolen gun, I'd say there's a better than average chance that he's not on our board either. You'd be hard pressed to come up with a more unrealistic mock draft for the Panthers if you set out to try to do just that.
