Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli Was Caught Saying Something Nasty On Camera (Video)
During his eight years with the New England Patriots—first as Assistant Director of Player Personnel, then Director of Player Personnel, then Vice President of Player Personnel—Scott Pioli earned a reputation as one of the best executives in the NFL, particularly when it came to evaluating talent.
What did he do to deserve this rep? How about going out of his way to trade for some undrafted wide receiver named Wes Welker.
However, in 2009 his career headed down a different road. Pioli decided to move on from the Patriots, where Bill Belichick would always have the final say, and take a job as the GM with the Kansas City Chiefs, where he would have total control of the team.
Obviously, things have not gone according to plan. Sure, the Chiefs were decent and won the AFC West in 2010, but in 2009 they won 4 games, in 2011 they won 7 games, and so far this year they are 1-5.
So it’s understandable that Pioli might be a little frustrated these days. And on Sunday before the Chiefs game against the Bucs, while he was talking to Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano, the CBS cameras gave us a glimpse of exactly how frustrated Pioli might be.
Take a look at the video, and pay attention to the 0:12 mark:
I’m not a lipreading expert, but it sure looks to me like Pioli called somebody a “motherf—ing nazi,” or in any case a motherf—ing something.
I wonder if he was talking about his boss, Chiefs owner Clark Hunt? After all, it wouldn’t be the first time someone said nasty things about their boss.
