This merchandise offered on this site is drop shipped by a company called Football Fanatics. They have been great in the past with shipping right away and the quality has been excellent. They can ship to Canada.

Great question.

Great question, although I'm swure you already know the answer. I just installed this mod lastnight/this morning. More documentation to follow.

Well actually I don't know, I mean I know how we have it set up but every site with vBulletin has it set up differently so I figured I'd ask...lol

You don't have to watch the games, if you win or lose they either take your money or pay you off.

I know but I like betting on sports that i watch

I'm not much of a gambler so I'd probably loose it quicker then I would earn it. I'm not sure how this works but I haven't had a chance to look into it yet.

Yes, I have primarily set it up for football season. I envisioned running some kind of contest this fall. Essentially, it would allow everyone on this board to gamble with fake money. You earn points by placing wagers on teams to win games. You also earn points by adding new threads and posts. I will be handing out some kind of prize for the Top Dogs each month.

In the mean time, I am planning to test it on some baseball games and anything else you folks want to place wagers on.

Are there any more ways to get Arrowcash other than the casino or posting threads and replies?

Yes if you go to sportsbook, you can bet your Arrowcash and win on games and other football related things. Personally this is why I have in the past tried to earn Arrowcash. I also won a ton of money predicting the Chiefs to beat the Chargers and reverse the spread early in the season.

Did Canada get anything for winning all that money on the Chargers game?

I think he won 2.7 mil in Arrowcash!

At the beginning. Don't you remember the first line of the bible.

And God Said "Let there be ChiefsCrowd!" (he also created Chiefs football before that) but that was the first line!! :D

Alright, then.

I have a question for Coach about the Crowd.

Why was I getting an Indiana DNS error the other day when I was trying to get on the site?

Why are we settling for this sub standard server?

If I got to click on ads to make money for the site then I'll do it.

We need to be online 24/7.

I think that for the amount of traffic we do sometimes that the grid holds up pretty good. I understand the point your making, but I find it hard to be dissatisfied with the site as is, that is completely free to it's members and is online more often then not. However, this is a question that only Coach can address in any detail. I do know that this site we all enjoy at present does not come easily or cheap, and has not come at the expense of it's any of it's member's except one - Coach.

Don't click on ads unless you have interest in what they are selling. The reason you were getting errors the other day is because I upgraded to a better server. So put that in your pipe and smoke it.
Actually, I think I figured out the reason the pages were taking so long to load was because of the ShoutBox at the bottom of the pages that nobody used. As a result, I ditched it. The site is flying now for me.

Hopefully I have addressed this in my post above. The site averaged around 400 visitors per day in February and continues to grow. I will continue to upgrade servers as needed. The site should never be down. If it is, then I need to know about it. As far as the cost, this is a free site for our members and it always will be. If you want to give something back to this site, tell other Chiefs fans that it exists.

I hated that shoutbox. (Not as much as I hate Herm though!)

You addressed it well, and thanks for providing this site for all the Chiefs fans out there!

We need to get that 400 visitors a day up to about 10,000.

I say a great season for the Chiefs (and of course, by proxy, their fans (US!)) will do it for us!
