    I’ve posted these around the net in past years for other leagues, now here’s a complete SPHL matrix. Observations: RNK sees only 7 teams at home, MAC/PEN/QC host 8, the others all 9. QC visits only 7 arenas, EVN/FAY/PEO travel to 8, the others all 9. Most games is (of course) QC-PEO with 16, followed by RNK-FAY with 13.

    I suggested the Stags, to not only honor the areas history with John Deere. But also because I just want to see celebrations called Stag Parties and a fan base called Stag Nation. Worked up a little something for a logo idea even

    I posted asking about this on Macons Facebook page and this is the response I recieved "Since Larry Smith was released from his contract at the end of the regular season and not on our playoff roster, he was not eligible to be protected. Therefore, he was eligible to sign with the Mayhem before August 1st"

    Before the season started there was an open forum where Chuck had negotiated with the city and county to fund the upgrades to the Crown Coliseum . He may or may not have funded any of it but he was responsible for making it happen.

    Since the front office never reads these forums... Have a social media night. Players where their @ Twitter names on their jersey nameplates. Contests during the game to live tweet and see if it can get retweeted by the official Twitter account (not some rip-off that had more followers than the entire SPHL combined back in the day when Twitter was still a new thing...). Facebook contests, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. The Ice Bears logo would have an @ next to it... Just some thoughts to throw out during the off season...

    The Fayetteville Marksmen were a study in contrasts in their first year of operation. Purchased late in the 2017 season as the Fayetteville FireAntz, the rebranded Marksmen had the worst record in the Southern Professional Hockey League, winning only 12 games, but reporting a boost in attendance of more than 1,130 fans per game. The Marksmen put the puck in the net fewer times than any other team, but captain Jake Hauswirth tied for third in the SPHL in scoring and was a second-team All-SPHL selection. They cut, traded or had called up to the Double-A ECHL a total of 36 players — the equivalent of roughly two full squads of SPHL teams.

    It's not just about Roanoke though, from the few schedules I have looked at, Fayettville never travels to QC and Evansville never makes the trip to Pensacola. That's lazy scheduling on the leagues part. Granted as a Roanoke fan this is only the third season I have followed the league, but this is the first time I've seen any teams not have to play in every arena atleast once.

    FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – After bringing back professional hockey journeyman and team-leading point scorer Jake Hauswirth last season for his third season in Fayetteville, the Fayetteville Marksmen professional hockey club is pleased to announce their second player for the coming season. Darren McCormick is heading into just his third year of professional hockey, with two call-ups to the ECHL, but the SUNY-Cortland alum is returning to Fayetteville for his first full season. McCormick, 25-year-old Left Wing, joined the Marksmen last season after being acquired via trade from the Macon Mayhem. Though he only spent four games in the black and orange, he had three assists for the team, finishing his Southern Professional Hockey League point total for last year with 36 points (22 goals, 14 assists). After his four games with the Marksmen, McCormick finished the 2017-18 season playing five games for the Cincinnati Cyclones. First-year Head Coach Jesse Kallechy, who was an assistant coach with McCormick’s first SPHL team in the Huntsville Havoc, spoke highly of him. For McCormick, returning to Fayetteville was the perfect fit. He went on, continuing to praise how the franchise is operated, and its affect on his decision. Of course, McCormick couldn’t leave out the Marksmen fans. Aside from his hard-work and dedication on the ice for the Marksmen this coming season, McCormick will be working alongside Director of Media Relations Shawn Bednard in the creation of motion graphics and videos for the Jumbotron inside the Crown Coliseum, to help assist in creating the SPHL’s best in-arena experience. McCormick handled such duties while playing at SUNY-Cortland in his collegiate career. The Fayetteville Marksmen are excited to welcome back Darren McCormick for the 2018-19 season, and look forward to him being the bedrock of what promises to be an exciting season of hockey in Cape Fear. The 2018-19 Marksmen Home Opener is October 19th, and Season Tickets are on sale now.

    We have a hotel right next to the arena (Tax Slayer Center). It's called the Radisson. A lot of visiting fans that come to the games stay there. https://www.reservationcounter.com/hotels2/show/602ef90/radisson-on-john-deere-commons-moline-moline-il?AdPos=1t1&cid=sem::TPRC::AW::::::radisson%20hotel%20moline%20il::e&creative=241573467482&device=c&iv_=__iv_p_1_a_981229808_g_56048385251_w_kwd-347546553520_h_9018656_ii__d_c_v__n_g_c_241573467482_k_radisson%20hotel%20moline%20il_m_e_l__t__e__r_1t1_vi__&utm_campaign=&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=google&utm_term=radisson%20hotel%20moline%20il There is also a few nice places to eat. TGI Fridays a lot of the visiting fans and players love to go eat there. One of my favorite places. It's right next to the Tax Slayer Center and Mississippi River. There is also a nice place down a little further called the Riverhouse to eat at. https://www.riverhouseqc.com/ The John Deere Commons are also near there and a gift shop. There is also a place down there called Isabel Bloom https://www.ibloom.com/ We also have a South Park Mall.

    This is cool - I don't care who you are. Every year, the Kentucky State Choir Finals are held in Louisville. And a tradition has started there where all 650 members of the competing choirs gather in the atrium of the Hyatt Regency hotel where they are staying to perform the National Anthem. You'll want to crank it up for this one. And pay attention after the 2:18 mark where the always popular higher octave segment goes double or nothing. A video of the event on Facebook has over 29 million views and 700,000 shares.
