KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A group of Kansas City Chiefs fans is so upset with the team, they plan to fly a banner over Arrowhead Stadium before Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens voicing their displeasure.

According to a Chiefs fan who goes by the handle pc_capone at ChiefsPlanet.com, the banner will read, “WE DESERVE BETTER!  FIRE PIOLI – BENCH CASSEL”.

That refers to Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli, who put the team together, and starting quarterback Matt Cassel, who has thrown seven interceptions and given up three fumbles in the past four games.

In the post, the fan says the cost to fly such a banner costs $725, but the pilot agreed to reduce the price by $100 because he “believes we are doing God’s work.”

As of 3 a.m. Wednesday morning, this fan had raised $1270.61 from donations sent in by Chiefs fans throughout the nation.

The fan is encouraging others to continue donating with plans to use the remaining money to fly other banners at future home games.

A plane will pull the banner over Arrowhead Stadium between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. Sunday morning.
