BIG EDIT: The conversation below was about the poor performance on our old host/server. The site has since been moved to a new home and is working great.
Tonight the site is running rather slowly - it crops up once in a while and was an issue here during the Hall of Fame Game.
The issue has to do with godaddy hosting and how it groups databases - essentially, the portion of the site that is called up, all the posts, user database, etc, can really suffer at unpredictable times dependent on the traffic to godaddy sites in general. That's why usually the site seems fine, but once in a while (like tonight) it sucks.
Now, we're looking to remedy this. I'm investigating a couple alternate hosting options that I want to talk with the site owner about, and I'm interested in having the site on a better-performing host in time for the regular season to begin and the site traffic to really pick up.
In the meantime if you have any suggestions or ideas for site hosting, feel free to reply or to drop me a line.
