This RiverKings season ticket holder has complete faith in the word YELDARBfield. Could shifting of New Madrid fault cause an earthquake and divert the Mississippi River through the Landers Center? I guess. But natural disasters are a risk to any arena. And, God forbid, a worse bus accident could instantly end ANY team's season. Other than that, I have see no reason to worry. My season tickets are bought and paid for. I'm confident the Kings will be there and God willing so will I. This was the 25th season of hockey for the RiverKings. I'm looking forward to 26!!!
It's over folks. I hate it. Been a fan for a long time and will miss the Snakes. The Amos family has done a fantastic job giving us hockey out of their own pockets. With their loss every season and the team getting worse every year, I can't and don't blame them.
Heres the truth. The team has been shopped, and was well before the article came out about our possible demise. The civic center/city of Columbus has not been helpful and leached a lot of revenue off this team over the years. Revenue that should have helped fund the Snakes, has not. That same revenue could have helped with hockey in Columbus for years to come.
I wish there were a different outcome, but it's not likely
