I had heard the name before, and thought I'd check out the website. Though I've heard good things about it, its always second hand info.
Can anyone here straight up vouch for the system, its content and its non-bullshido-ness?
...And maybe even clue me a little more on the content.
I was all for it....then I hit the website and the layout and salesmanship screamed "TRAP!" and shot red flags up everywhere. $1000 bucks a year for "all access" sounds like a bit much, but I'm just not sure til I hear some opinions.

Not sure where you are getting your prices from but 1 year of the site currently runs about $275 (if you pay up front - it's a little bit more if you pay monthly). I'm guessing you looked at the price to become a trainer maybe?
There are plenty of free video clips on the site that should give you a really good idea of what the site offers.
If you have any concerns just e-mail Rodney directly (or any one of the trainers associated with the site and I am sure they would be more than willing to give you as much information as you are looking for - or even better, just post your concerns on the free open forum - all of the trainers and Rodney post there regularly).
I have trained at an SBG in the past and I can tell you that if you are looking for functional training - CM is great (it encompasses standup, clinch and ground - Rodney is also a BJJ black belt under Chris Haueter and John Will is also part of the program - he is one of the CM trainers).

I like the crazy monkey guard. Not sure about this supposed system, but the form of covering I find quite useful.

Got a link to the site?
What I learned as Crazy Monkey as a defence in MMA stand up was demonstrated to some extent by Spencer Fisher last night on UFN.

I go to the following when I just want to check the forums (and not be locked into a smaller sized window) - the above link has more information and stuff in general:

I thought crazy monkey was just a real simple cover up defense. Why the need for all the money? I've learned at my gym, and like it a lot.

Check out the site - it's a complete system and what you are thinking of (the portion that made it first known) is just a small part of the system.
If you do check things out specifically look for information on the drivers (and frameworks) of the system, chaos coaching, the fight compass, combination flow theory,...
Also - Here is a site that has reviewed quite a few of Rodney's DVD's - this should also give you a glimpse into the system:

Student's links on post 6 are the one's I've checked out.
What I'm wondering about is the system and network itself. The money is for the "Trainer in Training" thing. I was just wondering if anyone had had any experience with it or with Mr. Rodeny King himself. I'm thinking about joining the program, but its too much money up front to just try it out.
I did check out the site more thoroughly, so I get a better picture of whats going on style-wise.
Maybe I'll start with the site membership, then work to the trainer thing later. Might be the way to go.
Any input welcome!

Killbot - Rodney is very accessible so I would recommend you shoot him an e-mail or call him on Skype (or at least talk to any of the trainers already in the system). If you read any of the posts by the current trainers it sounds like they are all in awe of the whole trainers program saying it far exceeds anything they have ever done or what they were expecting.
