Well, postponed until 2021 because of the 'construction delays'

The Chiefs canned their GM. I still have no idea what the [expletive] they are doing.

We were all stunned in our newsroom. I know he wasn't exactly the best at managing the salary cap but his record speaks for itself.

I don't know if there was a rift between Dorsey and Reid after cutting Maclin. I hope it wouldn't be something that petty but I can't say.

i was over at my folks place today and they being baby boomers still get a newspaper. i hadn't heard of his firing (not that i keep up with NFL news) until today when i saw the paper on the kitchen table. i don't know a damn thing about anything but i did find it odd. the eagle didn't flat out say it but it read (to me) that reid got power/sway with the owners to do this (i also skimmed the article, i could be way off). each year i get less interested in football but i still inevitably hear much about it so this news did surprise me. whatever, hah.

It was strange to say the least. Wondering if it really didn't have anything to do with football itself (and player selection) and more to do with personalities and management style. From the outside, Hunt/Dorsey/Reid sure seemed like a great match -- like, one of the best recently constructed owner/coach/GM matches in the game. It sure seemed like all lollipops and gumballs and the results were starting to show up on the field. I guess appearances can be deceiving. Dorsey probably liked Arthur Bryant's and Reid was a Jack's Stack man... that's probably the real issue.

Not sure it really matters. GM's aren't exactly the ones doing the scouting and player development. With hiring Veach, it seems like the Chiefs want to keep doing what they're doing, but do it with a different personality at the helm.
