  1. Past hour
  2. I'm surprised someone else didn't get the job. Then again, ties between Bremner and Gray probably trumped (no pun intended) the other choices.
  3. That's sad, what a nice guy with a great family! Horrible coach, though.
  4. I knew it had to be coming. Thank you. Love how the new coach said fast and physical, that is the kind of team Roanoke would love to have. Welcome Dan Bremner, we are glad to have you in Roanoke!!!!!

  6. https://twitter.com/RailYardDawgs/status/942765520650231814 Big news this morning for Roanoke. Bremner is a familiar name in the SPHL, serving as captain of the Peoria Rivermen in previous years.
  7. Today
  8. Massimo Lamacchia

    Thanks for sharing. Glad to hear he's still playing. He was a class young man and I hope he does well.
  9. His dad posted on Roanoke's facebook page that Massimo is playing hockey 15 minutes outside of Paris if your wondering where he is.
  10. Only stat you need to see is goals against a game 4.22. No matter how good an offense is that high of a gaa per game is going to be a disaster.
  11. Exactly, i see people constantly complaining about ticket prices they go to buy online. You buy them online you pay about $5 more per ticket. Go buy your tickets at the Berglund Center before the games. Most people dont know they are paying higher ticket prices buying them online. Its crazy how many people it turns away from coming to a game. Dont understand the fees for selling tickets online. I could see maybe a couple bucks for the total purchase but $5 per ticket?
  12. Berkeley Scott is probably one of the best players we've had in a long time. Definitely not a "bum". I want Craigen back as much as I would like an STD. There. Said it. Done.
  13. Not to sound dramatic

    By this I assume you mean services/companies like TicketMaster? If so, the problem with that is the teams cannot control that as the venue actually has the relationship with those services.
  14. Thanks for the Business Econ 101 Replies above, Sharkies. When my wife & I started following minor pro hockey 6 seasons ago, I was happy to pay the going ticket prices anywhere we visited after being priced out of semi-regular NHL game attendance. And even as minor pro & junior hockey ticket prices have risen in most arenas, I have understood the necessity for the teams & the venue management companies to keep up with inflation. The only thing that still burns my colon is the tendency for teams to abandon their in-house ticket sales & hire 3rd-party sellers to do the job. While this saves the teams some money in salaries & overhead, the ridiculous ticket seller fees make fans less inclined to purchase higher priced seats (which I presume can carry higher profit margins?) and in some cases will dissuade fans from purchasing tickets at all. I just wish there was more thought put into such business decisions before the front offices burden a critical part of their customer base with fees of 33% or more of base ticket prices.
  15. Just do not sit in section 108, that is not a kind section to opponents if you know what I mean
  16. 204 is the most popular section to sit in. But I wouldnt go off of online to buy tickets. I would want call or buy there. But it is a small arena and there isnt a bad seat in the house. You can sit almost anywhere and they should be able to see you.

    Here are some stats that are of interest to Greg. Roanoke has scored first in 5 games The other 13 games, the opponent has scored first. In the 5 games where Roanoke scored first, they are 4-1-0 (all 4 wins are 3 wins in OT and 1 win in SO) In the 13 games where the opponent scores first, the Dawgs are 1-10-2. I hope the stat where Roanoke scores first is a bit of a comfort.
  19. I've said it before and I'll say it again.... Drobot is the "heart" of the team. On and off the ice. He contributes more to the well-being of the team than any other player, hands down. He is fine being the "10th" forward. He isn't gonna light the lamp over and over. He isn't going to run down every puck, but he IS a leader that all the players look towards - on the ice, in the locker room, in the community and more. Sometimes what a player contributes is NOT seen in the stats per se. Believe me, the only riot you would have on this team or with the fans would be if he got traded or left the team. THEN, you'd have a real mess on your hands.
  20. @GoGetOver The most interesting thing so far is Shane losing his IFB pack out of his pants.

  21. My wife and I are considering traveling to Pelham for the game on the 29th (Macon @ Birmingham). Obviously we're Macon fans and would like to sit where the Macon players could spot us. If I'm looking at the seating chart correct, it looks like section 204 is behind the benches. It appears that there are no seats available in this section!?!? Would love to be directly behind the Macon bench if possible. Any Bulls fan care to help out an opposing team's fan? At least point me in the right location or locations. Might be able to reciprocate if a couple of Bulls fans come to Macon on Feb. 16th. Thanks!
  22. You guys have a 3-0-2 record on Roanoke worth 8 points on the season to their 4 off you.
  23. At least Drobot leads the team in one category; penalty minutes!

    See, the problem I find in business is people don't want to pay for the actual value of anything. I lost a roofing job because the estimate I gave was too much ($3,000 versus $2,400). I went to a realty company that was looking to paint a duplex, but when I inspected the units, I saw holes and dents and cracks needing to be fixed, mold that needed to be removed, etc. I estimated around $1,200 but they declined because it was not for just a paint job, even though the paint job would violate numerous health and safety codes (for the mold). What I find funny is people will gripe and complain about minor league hockey and attendance is never that of major league teams. But they will spend their life savings to see one game of a major league sport or hit movie theaters religiously, all of which are much more expensive. It just baffles my mind. Minor league sports are not less important than major league or junior league sports. I guess people feel these players will never amount to anything than where they are.
  26. I think you hit the nail on the head Sharkies, if I remember correctly the Express's last season was the first season after the ECHL-WCHL merger and the subsequent western expansion.
