I wonder how the Why our Sons and Daughters must be Sacrificed for Iraq !!! (http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showthread.php?t=130209) thread would go over at Phil's new site?

Should I test it out?

This is not a political poll, I have the identical poll on both of our biggest forums. Mods please be tolerant, thanks. Vlad

You're right. ChiefsPlanet will continue.

Let me try to put the other into perspective for you. I've wanted to do some fun things for a long time at ChiefsPlanet - a TV segment, a giant tailgate, and regular features written from the press box. It has been 5 years since we started talking about getting press passes. It's NOT happening. Yeah, I sold out. I am an opportunist. I'm all those things that may have a negative connotation for some. But trust me, it's not for the money. It takes money to accomplish the things I want to do and I have a chance of making that happen with the backing of Fox Sports. I had zero chance as half owner/admin of ChiefsPlanet.com.

I'm not just going over there to chat Chiefs on the message board. I'm going to make the overall local coverage of the Chiefs much better in the long term. I may not make a difference this week or even this year but one day you'll be thanking me for the changes I've helped to make regarding the coverage of football in and around KC.

I'm not gonna hang around a refute every person that says Phil left because _____. I left for the right reasons in my situation. I don't expect them to be the right reasons for other people. I'm not going to beg anybody to follow me over there. I'm going to give you something that makes you WANT to go over there and then maybe you'll stay. I'm also not going to feed board feuds. I think that road has been travelled and it's not a path I want to go down again.

No problem.

Again, I'll stick with my original premise of this bb. It was a place to gather friends to talk Chiefs FB. I don't recall anyone ever talking about, "how can we take this thing Hollywood..."

Somewhere along the line Phil, and I mean no disrespect, you started gaining this desire to be bigger than the Community itself. Right, wrong or indifferent, that's just the way I feel. Look, you've poured a TON of effort and time into this place. God bless you for that. I just considered you a super hardcore Chiefs fan. So, forgive me if it comes across as though you prostituted yourself for the first opportunity that came bouncing along....especially with Nick fn Athan. Geezus. That might be the worst of it all.

As far as thanking you in the future, I'll just thank you for all the things you did here at CP to make it a better message board, and a better community of Chiefs fans. Good luck.

Phil I have no problem with your choice, it is your life you do as you must. In fact I am happy for you and good luck. I hope you can turn it around.

My question to you is why hadn't some of those things happened? Not enough money, not enough interest, or do some people just don't care? I don't think it was too much to ask to get press passes or a giant tailgate started.

I know I will get flamed for this but I think TJ has done a wonderful job at the OrangeMane. There overall members suck for the most part, heh, but the site has alot of information and it is very slick. Now I don't know if they have press credentials, maybe TJ could verify that but they do write articles all the time.

Well, I has planned on it, but then I backed off. As much as I hate Athan, I still like Phob, and this would likely end up hurting Phil more than Nick in the attempts to clean up the aftermath.

As much as I see this as "siding with the enemy", at the same time, I'd have a lot of trouble turning down a press pass too. At the same time, the bigger that site becomes, the smaller the influence of Nick it will have. Sometimes the best way to make a change or destroy the enemy is from the inside.

Good luck Phob. I hope you can turn that place around.

We have been asked to keep it clean and clear of these kinds of things. And I for one will delete any threads that are tasteless in content. Sorry if that is what some of you want, but I want to keep this board clear of the ESPNs and all the rest, ones that went down hill with trash posts and vulgar ones too. If anyone has a problem with that, take it up with me in PM, but I won't allow that kind of thing.

I know I still grate on many folks but I also have the ability to create topics that create traffic. However if their membership cannot handle that thread then likely I woould be wasting my time. Imagine (gasp) I posted one of my previous derogatory threads about the Chiefs/Carl Peterson to make people think? I see Phil really did not want me to post that thread but funny thing is he responded on it something I did not expect. Even if it was just to jokingly say I was scaring them.

Phil I have no problem with your choice, it is your life you do as you must. In fact I am happy for you and good luck. I hope you can turn it around.

My question to you is why hadn't some of those things happened? Not enough money, not enough interest, or do some people just don't care? I don't think it was too much to ask to get press passes or a giant tailgate started.

I know I will get flamed for this but I think TJ has done a wonderful job at the OrangeMane. There overall members suck for the most part, heh, but the site has alot of information and it is very slick. Now I don't know if they have press credentials, maybe TJ could verify that but they do write articles all the time.


The Broncos... and the Chiefs for that matter, do not allow press passes for online organizations... Not even if they are the number one places on the Internet to discuss the news and events of the respective team. I've tried, and I know Chiefs Planet has tried. Both were denied. The teams don't have much respect for what it is we're doing with these boards. The only thing they seem to see and understand is money. And since we're not making much (if any) of it with these boards, we don't really exist.

No problem.

Again, I'll stick with my original premise of this bb. It was a place to gather friends to talk Chiefs FB. I don't recall anyone ever talking about, "how can we take this thing Hollywood..."

Somewhere along the line Phil, and I mean no disrespect, you started gaining this desire to be bigger than the Community itself. Right, wrong or indifferent, that's just the way I feel. Look, you've poured a TON of effort and time into this place. God bless you for that. I just considered you a super hardcore Chiefs fan. So, forgive me if it comes across as though you prostituted yourself for the first opportunity that came bouncing along....especially with Nick fn Athan. Geezus. That might be the worst of it all.

As far as thanking you in the future, I'll just thank you for all the things you did here at CP to make it a better message board, and a better community of Chiefs fans. Good luck.


Pat, I'm afraid I am going to have to disagree with you on all counts. There have been numerous discussions about "taking this place Hollywood". Most seem to like the idea. Hell I like it. But for me it is not so important to leave the board to try and achieve. I am content with the way we are right now. That other stuff is just icing on teh cake.

Also, it is because Phil is such a hardcore Chiefs' fan that he has put so much time and effort into this place, and it is also the reason why he is moving on. Love of the Chiefs is not exclusive to the Planet. It's not like he "sold himslef" to the Mane, he has merely moved on to another Chiefs' site where he sees the potential to do certain things that are important to his personal fandom.

I'm sorry if you feel betrayed, especially since this is, and WPI for that matter, just an internet message board.

Wow. Phil has a long, tough road ahead of him there. Some observations after wasting a couple of hours reading through the site;

I'l start with the obvious. The format and software suck. Easy fix though. But more important is the facts about CP. CP is successful because of how it's moderated and run. Because of this it attracts a lot more people who are free to express themselves with certain (but not many limits). CP started from the ground up for all of us who tired of the Star ruling with an iron fist. WP is already established and filling a niche and if their members liked the CP style they would already post here. I can't see a need for another 'CP' style site for the same football team. Seems like product saturation. It would take something drastic here at CP to cause a mass exodus for WP to be anywhere near what CP has become.

Phobia has done a great job here, he was fair and has an interesting online personality, so I believe he will make that site much better. I just don't see it becoming anywhere near as successful as a site that has as many members as CP.

Well, I thought our personality was that we were all Chiefs fans but in a clean enviroment where we tried to keep the peace. We don't just delete posts. We edit and delete attacks on posters and try to keep this place a clean board that parents wouldn't mind kids going to. But that will change when we do nothing. When I became a mod, it wasn't the nicest place on the net. I thought that we were making progress. But hey, lets see where it goes with your approach.

I am very surprised Athan wanted this place. I figured it would tick off some of his paying customers... and that's what he's trying to do here, sell magazines or whatever it is he sells. I'm not sure a board like this fits well with the image of a respected news source that he's trying to achieve. I guess we are kind of the outlaw OK Corral of message boards.
