Pretty interesting article. I agree that this does play into the Chief's hands this year. One of hte things that I worry about with this new CBA is the future. Since teams are now required to spend money, I think we will see contracts increase in revenue, but be shorted in length.

I can see this expecially for mediocre players. Teams will sign them for a lot more money, but only for a year or two in order to see how they play out.

I worry about htis most with the Chiefs since we have a history of mediocrity in some positions.

Pioli will certainly have his hands full this week. It will be interesting to see what he does.

They have tons of money to spend and a chance to make us a really good team. BUT we have Clark Hunt who I still think has Piolis hands tied and now have us known as the KC Cheaps.

We have a hell of a tough schedule this year. This will be the season to set the tone for the next few years. We have serious talent (O line still needs help!!!), but with one of the hardest schedules in the NFL this year, this is make or break. If we can get 10 wins, we will continue to grow and improve. If we get 9 or less, we go back to treading water or sinking. I knew we would be good last year, but not as good as we were. This year I am hopeful, but we need the stars to align just right to get through this brutal schedule.

People calling us the kc cheaps no nothing about building a team. Spend your wad now and then you will complain about losing good players because we can't fit them in the cap. I am fine winning our division with the 31st salary.

I will disagree, considering if Clark was concerned about being "cheap", he certainly wouldn't have paid to bring a legendary GM to KC. I can guarantee Scott Pioli wasn't "cheap" to hire. Furthermore, we drafted Eric Berry at $60 million, making him the highest paid Safety in the NFL. Neither of those two facts alone add up to Clark being "cheap". Clark wants a KC Super Bowl, and I believe is willing to do whatever is possible legally to do just that. He wants to make his father proud following in Lamar's footsteps, but he also wants recognition in his own right, respectably.
