New-Look Chiefs, New-Look Arrowhead Addict


We like to try to keep up with the times here at Arrowhead Addict and when we noticed the Kansas City Chiefs had given themselves a bit of a makeover by adding GM John Dorsey, head coach Andy Reid and QB Alex Smith, we thought perhaps it was time for a facelift ourselves.

Welcome to the new Arrowhead Addict.

I know, I know, everyone hates change. Surprisingly, we have changed the look and feel of our site before and we’ve managed to survive.

This is a major change but we feel it gives the site a sleeker, more modern look.

But that’s not all.

The site was designed with you, the reader, in mind. We now have bigger feature areas to help make it easier for you find the AA content you love and the columns written by your favorite AA writers.

We have also worked to get more Chiefs content in front of you than ever before! If you look on the left side of the page when you are on the main page and the right side of the page when you are inside a story, you will see other trending Chiefs stories from around the FanSided Network. That means if NFL Spin Zone, NFL Mocks, KC Kingdom or FanSided.com has a new Chiefs story up, you are probably going to see it on Arrowhead Addict! 

Another really cool aspect of the new site is that after you are done reading and article and leaving comments, all you need to do is scroll down and the front page stories are there for you to continue exploring! No more hitting the back button on your browser to check out that other story that looking interesting when you arrived. Just scroll down past the comments and keep checking out that Chiefs content!

Our new category tags making finding info on a certain topic easier. Just click on a topic, like “injury report” and the page will display all the other stories in that category.

Finally, the page is now set up with infinite scroll. You can scroll down and keep getting content without having to click next and waiting forever for another page to load. This should help speed up your navigation around the site and help you find more content faster.

We hope you enjoy the new AA. Take some time to look around and explore the new format. We look forward to your comments below!

    I like the new look except all the junk between the end of the article and the comments section…but have to pay the bills!

      Yeah we don’t like that either, but it does pay bills…

    I like the idea of infinite scrolling in theory – but I think you have some programming bugs to be worked out still. Scrolling on this page is very slow and non smooth. Anything is better however than the slide shows on “Bleacher Report”, where you get about one paragraph per page. I refuse to read those stories.

      It should speed up as things get cached and all that. But it will also be something we’ll be working on over the course of the next few weeks.

    After looking at this for the last week, I’m glad all of our readers get to finally see it too!

    • Jim Harper

      Been holding out eh, Jason?

  • James Wilson

    i just hope it will work on my piece of crap phone without booting me off 20 times. for some reason the arrowhead addict app won’t work with my droid…

    I wondered why I was unable to get on the site earlier in the day. Now I know why. Without getting too gushy I absolutely love it. Very well done! The ability to move around within the site is awesome and the design looks very professional. Kudos to all involved that put this together Absolutely exceptional!

  • Michael Shaw

    Meh! Jury is still out. If It keeps making it difficult for me to find the comments section again, then I will have to vote no. However, that might have been my browser trying to get it all downloaded??!!!

  • Michael Shaw

    I will say that having the author’s bio at the top right hand corner was better than at the bottom, IMHO.

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      I feel you. We kind of wanted to feature the writers a little bit more.

  • KCInjuns

    it’s a jumbled mess

      Do you not like the rest of the web or something?
