    Some bizarro goings on behind the scenes in the Chiefs organization reported by multiple sources -- purportedly initiated by GM Scott Pioli:

    Arrowhead anxiety: Turnover off the field causes concern
    BY KENT BABB
    The Kansas City Star


    Todd Haley walked into the public relations office at Chiefs headquarters on a Thursday in early December. Four days before he was fired as the team’s coach, he wanted to talk about what life was like inside this organization. But he didn’t know who else might be listening.

    Looking up toward the ceiling, he darted into a back hallway before hesitating. Then he turned around, going back through a door and stopping again. Haley suspected that many rooms at the team facility were bugged so that team administrators could monitor employees’ conversations. Stopping finally in a conference room, Haley said he believed his personal cellphone, a line he used before being hired by the Chiefs in 2009, had been tampered with.

    Paranoid? The Chiefs have adamantly denied that they tap phones or listen in on conversations. But as the team enters another period of transition after elevating defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel last week to head coach, interviews with more than two dozen current and former employees suggest that intimidation and secrecy are among the Chiefs’ principal management styles - and that Haley wasn’t the only one with paranoid thoughts...

    Whoa, if those allegations are true, then I feel for the poor saps that have to work with/for Pioli and the entire roster.

    PFT pointed out that if these allegations are true these guys (Pioli et al) could be facing serious jail time. Hopefully Haley isn't just saying this stuff out of spite, because these are some pretty harsh accusations.

    Todd Haley always struck me as kind of a weirdo. I could see him being overly paranoid to the point he accuses his former employer of things like this based on sounds coming from the A/C turning on.

    I think I'd just walk around saying things like "Boy that Scott Pioli is a real sheep ****er."

    Scott Pioli did not rape and murder a girl in 1990.
