Communication, management style were factors in Chiefs' firing of Dorsey

The Chiefs' decision to shockingly fire general manager John Dorsey last week isn't sitting well with one long-time member of the organization. Rather, he was sacked, which was very shocking considering he was Reid's hand-picked general manager, having come on board in 2013 after Reid was hired.

Paylor of the Kansas City Star reported team chairman Clark Hunt fired Dorsey partially because of his lackluster internal communications skills even though the Chiefs sported a 43-21 record over the last four years. Dorsey spent most of his professional career in the Packers' scouting department, and some months back his name was floated as a possible future replacement for Packers GM Ted Thompson, though a subsequent report has indicated that may not be the case. Both MacCracken and Lewis had been with the Chiefs for at least four years.

Syria denies US allegations of coming chemical attack
The activist-run Deir Ezzor 24 media outlet said at least 60 civilians were killed. Shayrat airfield is known to be associated with chemical weapons.

That situation also demonstrated a problem that has plagued Reid and Dorsey since their arrival: management of the salary cap. "Blunt, honest and a great talent evaluator".

Ballard was the Chiefs' director of football operations. Whoever gets hired as the new general manager likely will require Reid's approval to be hired. Kansas City finished 2016 as the AFC West champions.

Kushner visits family of officer murdered in Jerusalem attack
Settlements are also considered an obstacle to peace because they are built on land Palestinians claim for a future state. The White House said on Sunday that Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, would arrive in Israel on Wednesday.

The decision to move on from Dorsey was a shock primarily because of the timing.

Much in the same way that the eventual head coaches often go through the head coach interview process two, three or more times before they finally land the job, it appears to only be a matter of time before Paton lands somewhere and the Vikings will have to be prepared for that scenario sooner than later.

Stock to Keep Your Eyes on: Exelixis Inc (NASDAQ:EXEL)
Fortaleza Asset Management Inc. bought a new position in shares of Exelixis during the first quarter worth approximately $106,000. On April 4, 2016 the stock rating was changed to a "Buy" in a report from Stifel Nicolaus up from the previous "Hold" rating.

While Dorsey's communication was apparently questionable, it's hard to knock the production on the field.
