I thought that's what he said. I like it. Brodie played way better from that point on. It's about time we have a coach that shows some attitude and isn't afraid to put a player in their place.

You have paid how much to post here?

It's too much to ask that members, who pay nothing to post here, to follow a few simple basic rules?

So, because you pay nothing to post here it is your God given inalienable right to expect to be able post just whatever you wish and be winked at while abusing your privilege to post things that clearly violate the rules?

It is a matter of opinion, one that I don't agree with, but it doesn't violate any rules that I can see. I would not ban someone for stating their opinion within the confine of the rules. Further more I would also say that if posting in any of our forums, regardless of what you believe it's name suggest to you, within the rules is a problem for you then this may not be the place for you. Hardcore discussion means to state ones thoughts and opinions regarding the Chiefs and respectfully defending, if necessary, your point of view, not posting things that violate the rules that have been set in place since, nearly, day one.

I hope this serves to clear things up a bit.

I've never understood censorship.
Many developed countries get to say or screen most anything they like on radio and television including "vulgar language" and nudity, and their youth are nowhere near as damaged as our own for being exposed to it. Real talk.

I've always been an English student, but I've never been able to grasp why so many people assign magical properties to certain words. They're just words, aren't they? They hold no real power, do they? I feel that by bending over backwards to accommodate those easily offended types that go into conniption fits over a choice arrangement of letters we are only serving to cater to the least common denominator, and encouraging the hyper-sensitivity problem that has become oh so prevalent in our culture.

But that's just me, I guess. I do try to follow the rules, even though I don't agree with some of them. Also, I'm drunk. :-D

I too use a "curse word" in almost every sentence in real life.

But there is a variety of different websites around. Plenty of Chiefs websites, even. And if none of them allow the kind of language that we are discussing, then you could always start your own site, with whatever rules you choose.

Since this is Coah's site, he makes the rules. Much like if he were to ask that noone smoke in his car, or scream in his home.

We are visiting his site. We just need to respect his rules.

Now, if it were someone's home, and they said "No 'curse words' in my home", I would probably have to leave.

Not because I choose to not obey the rule. It's because "what the ****'s going on?" doesn't have the backspace option in speech. But it is so easy to edit in type.

Peoples' choices of rules for THEIR home,Their restaraunt, THEIR car and THEIR website is... THEIRS.

Just because the website is "open to the public" does not mean that it belongs to the public. It is still privately owned.

Even if we were paying for membership, we are still guests.

Now, as I said above, I agree with sentiment of the quoted post. The words only mean whatever the user intended it to mean. ("What the ****'s going on?" = "What the heck's going on?")

I think the reason that the rules are employed here, is because one misunderstanding of the intent can breed the kind of atmosphere that is unwanted here.

And, as anyone who uses "curse words" regularly knows, that happens alot. Especially in heated debates.

So, as opposed to trying to police who misinterpreted what, (Like that doesn't already happen enough around here) the line can be drawn much more clearly at the well-known "curse words" point.

Rep for the logic, though, Pawn.

At the same time, coming from someone who does web development for a living, if you don't keep your visitors happy and appeal to your target audience as much as similar sites do, your traffic goes down because some will stop coming to your site and switch to using another one.

I'm not saying this necessarily applies here. Coach seems like a cool guy and I think he's trying to run a family-friendly Chief's site, which is fine of course. It's his website and in the end it's his decision on how to run it.

Just saying, driving visitors away is never a good thing. The more people that visit the site, the more people that will be buying from the store, visiting the forums, etc. Web sites are ultimately all the same, they're looking to generate as much traffic as possible.

You shouldn't feel like a "guest" at any site. You are essentially the customer, whether you're purchasing anything with cash or not. It's like watching a show on TV. You're not necessarily paying to watch it, but by watching it you help keep the show running.

This is true also.

However, this site is not for profit. And does not require a large audience.

It is here because Coach wants a place to be able to talk/read about The Chiefs and Chiefs fans. (Basically)

Losing members is not a good thing, as it lowers the number of opinions being expressed. But members who want a different type of site, are always free to find that, elsewhere.

I get a few infactions but thats about it. If u let one thread have swearing then it will spread and then people will get pissed off and there will be curse words and sh!t all over the site. That is what they are trying to avoid. Besides, type whatever you want and it is automatically filtered usually. We can usually figure out what people are saying.

These guys make alot of money to do what they do, they should be able to take "ahem" constructive criticism when they blow it. This team has a chance to win some games, but only if they are doing things as close to perfect at possible. Haley knows that. He cannot teach talent to the linemen, but he can make sure they do not commit false start penalties every drive.

The site makes revenue, but I won't be quitting my day job as many of you have figured out. That is why I am not on here as much as I'd like.

The revenue pays for hosting costs, costs of scripts like vbulletin(forum (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/index.php)), paying people to write fresh content(articles (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/announcement.php?a=20)), paying for logos/headers/t-shirts to be designed, giving away tickets to games(here (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6110&highlight=tickets)), giving away t-shirts(here (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/showthread.php?t=628&highlight=t-shirt) and here (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7573&highlight=t-shirt) and here (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3198&highlight=t-shirt)) and jerseys, fantasy football contests, pick em contests, and a bunch of other things that I can't recall off the top of my head.
At the end of the day, this site is an expensive hobby for me, but very rewarding most of the time. I use the ads primarily on the front page where our regular users spend very little time. This allows the "visitors"(mainly from search engines) to pay for the contests that the members(you) can win. It's a balance of running ads so that I can give away stuff while trying to make sure that they don't become intrusive.

So you are correct, this site does create revenue. The more, the merrier for all of us.

The site makes revenue, but I won't be quitting my day job as many of you have figured out. That is why I am not on here as much as I'd like.

The revenue pays for hosting costs, costs of scripts like vbulletin(forum (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/index.php)), paying people to write fresh content(articles (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/announcement.php?a=20)), paying for logos/headers/t-shirts to be designed, giving away tickets to games(here (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6110&highlight=tickets)), giving away t-shirts(here (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/showthread.php?t=628&highlight=t-shirt) and here (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7573&highlight=t-shirt) and here (http://www.chiefscrowd.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3198&highlight=t-shirt)) and jerseys, fantasy football contests, pick em contests, and a bunch of other things that I can't recall off the top of my head.
At the end of the day, this site is an expensive hobby for me, but very rewarding most of the time. I use the ads primarily on the front page where our regular users spend very little time. This allows the "visitors"(mainly from search engines) to pay for the contests that the members(you) can win. It's a balance of running ads so that I can give away stuff while trying to make sure that they don't become intrusive.

So you are correct, this site does create revenue. The more, the merrier for all of us.




I too enjoy seeing a coach that isn't afraid of confronting a player when he screws up. But I'm a little old school. After all, my favorite coach is Bobby Knight.

He was so mild manored(sp). :D

I would post a link to my favorite Bobby Knight speech, but I would get an infraction.
:lol:

But if a person were to visit www.youtube.com (http://www.youtube.com) and do a search for Bobby Knight, the first clip that shows up is my favorite. It is definitely rated "R", and is littered with cursewords, so buyer beware. Reminds me of my high school basketball coach.

chiefster as to reply to your really weak arguement that we dont pay so we cant say what we want.. You didnt pay any of the people who founded the bill of rights.. the constitution or any of the amendments.. so do u agree you dont have freedom of speech? And for the person who has the "ten year old sister" over his shoulder that is on you not us posting. The Internet holds way worse than a Gif of hailey giving it to brody.. Id tell you what id think of your intelligence but id prob get another infraction. God knows ive gotten countless ones of those because of some WORDS that make peoples internet feelings get butt hurt. Its simple dont like bad words or offensive things then stay inside the rest of your life... LIFE IS OFFENSIVE!

:lol: I didn't see that post by Church. Kinda ironic but I guess it totally makes sense that the guy who won't get off his high horse to help his community cuz they're just a bunch of alcoholic pothead pieces of crap gets on a soapbox about freedom of speech in relation to cussing on the internet... :lol:

He's right tho, this is America where we do have freedom of speech so I can say:

church makes me rofl, now pass me a beer and a bong! :drunkhb: :SmokinBanana:

You became offended by my words when I made reference to your actions, as they pertain to your religious beliefs.

You are far from above it all, as you portray yourself to be.

As far as the comparison of this website and The United States of America go....

Someone owns this site and allows you to participate, within their guidlines, if you wish. The country belongs to all of the citizens.

Are you part owner of Chiefscrowd.com?

And you were right about one thing. It is simple.

But, if you don't like "bad words" or offensive things, then there are people and places that will share that sentiment and will not allow it.

Just like if you don't like The Oakland Raiders, there will be people and places that share that sentiment.

How about if you go see how many people share your sentiment of how Church_backfield is the double Uber Burger with extra 'Leet sauce, and join in what is sure to be a thriving community of like-minded people.

Enjoy yourself. :D

If i wanted to see a bunch of idiots fight, i'd watch jon and kate plust 8 !!

Here's a little tip for all of you that don't like the rules....there are over a billion websites on the internet, go find another one!!

sorry if i'm speaking out of turn, i think i'm still a little in noobsville, but i'm trying hard to get to know things better!!

I too use a "curse word" in almost every sentence in real life.

But there is a variety of different websites around. Plenty of Chiefs websites, even. And if none of them allow the kind of language that we are discussing, then you could always start your own site, with whatever rules you choose.

Since this is Coah's site, he makes the rules. Much like if he were to ask that noone smoke in his car, or scream in his home.

We are visiting his site. We just need to respect his rules.

Now, if it were someone's home, and they said "No 'curse words' in my home", I would probably have to leave.

Not because I choose to not obey the rule. It's because "what the ****'s going on?" doesn't have the backspace option in speech. But it is so easy to edit in type.

Peoples' choices of rules for THEIR home,Their restaraunt, THEIR car and THEIR website is... THEIRS.

Just because the website is "open to the public" does not mean that it belongs to the public. It is still privately owned.

Even if we were paying for membership, we are still guests.

Now, as I said above, I agree with sentiment of the quoted post. The words only mean whatever the user intended it to mean. ("What the ****'s going on?" = "What the heck's going on?")

I think the reason that the rules are employed here, is because one misunderstanding of the intent can breed the kind of atmosphere that is unwanted here.

And, as anyone who uses "curse words" regularly knows, that happens alot. Especially in heated debates.

So, as opposed to trying to police who misinterpreted what, (Like that doesn't already happen enough around here) the line can be drawn much more clearly at the well-known "curse words" point.

Rep for the logic, though, Pawn.

Sorry for the late response, but yeah, I get where you're coming from. I both understand and respect the concept of "house rules", which is why I haven't adamantly pursued this conquest; I just put my two cents in and made sure to retain a respectful tone while doing so. All in all, I value this community more than I value the ability to "effectively" emote in said community. :D

I also understand the Pandora's Box that could easily be opened by uncensored chat. People start dropping F bombs with regularity, and pretty soon some inevitable idiot starts lobbing out the "N word" with precisely no discretion whatsoever. Mass chaos and a bad reputation for the site promptly ensues.

Bingo. Thanks for your understanding.

If we didn't have any kind of censorship this site wouldn't be the site it is. It is a site where all chiefs fans can get together and voice their opinions about things.
Talking all poopie mouth is disrespectful to the other members as well as to all the other people that are looking for a site about the chiefs, if there was no censorship most visitors would never come back because they see how it didn't care about how visitors think about this site.
It comes down to respect. Kudos to Coach for wanting to have a respectable site.
