A group of Kansas City Chiefs fans plan on flying a banner over the stadium expressing their disgust with the organization during today’s game (Credit: AP Photo) Arrowhead Stadium used to be a place where opposing teams hated to visit because of how loud the crowd could be during the game. Today, the crowd is not the same and Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star is reporting that one fan, or group of fans, has hired an airplane to fly a banner over the stadium during today’s game. According to Mellinger, the banner which will read “WE DESERVE BETTER! FIRE PIOLI — BENCH CASSEL” will be flown over the parking lot, expressing the fanbase’s dissatisfaction with general manager Scott Pioli and quarterback Matt Cassel. The money to have the banner printed and flown was raised in less than an hour. “There’s some passion behind that message,” said Corey Leuwerki, a pilot for company who made the message. “Because money is not normally raised this quick.” It’s not just that the Chiefs are 1-3, with the lone win over a Saints team that has more problems at the moment than they do. It’s the apparent lack of direction, and the lack of hope based on recent results. The Chiefs have lost nine of their last 12 home games, four of them by at least 21 points. Since the win came in overtime, they haven’t led for a second of game time this year, trailing in 204 of a possible 249 minutes.
