A group of disgruntled Chiefs fans hired an airplane to fly a banner over Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City on Sunday to express their dissatisfaction with the organization.


The banner’s message stated: “We Deserve Better! Fire Pioli – Bench Cassel.” It was paid for by a bunch of hardcore Chiefs fans who frequent the forum at ChiefsPlanet.com. The organizer wrote in a posting on the site that the cost to fly the banner was $725/hour, but that the company dropped the price by $100 because they believed in the cause.


Pioli is Scott Pioli, who was hired as the team’s GM after the 2008 season. He came from New England where his teams won three Super Bowls since 2000. One of his big moves was acquiring and then signing Matt Cassel from his former team the Patriots. Pioli’s Chiefs teams have gone 21-27 the past three years, and they’re 1-3 this season.


After playing extremely well as an injury replacement for Tom Brady in 2008, Cassel has been mostly mediocre for Kansas City. He threw for 27 touchdowns and 7 interceptions in a Pro Bowl season in 2010, but he’s thrown for 31 touchdowns and 32 interceptions outside of that year.


The fans somewhat got their wish on Sunday when Cassel got hurt and was replaced by Brady Quinn.


You can read all about the reasons the fan decided to organize the effort at ChiefsPlanet.
