    100% I believe in the Dawgs. I was fortunate enough to move to the area a few months before opening night, and it’s been great to see the excitement in this town for the team. Believe it or not, a stark contrast to the apathy that surrounds the historic AHL franchise in my hometown. Not only the Dawgs, butt the SPHL itself has proven to be a legitimate, sustainable league. I confess that I didn’t follow it a whole lot before moving here, but now I’ll defend it to anybody and think it’s laughable when the FHL is referred to as its equal on the hockey landscape. The SPHL’s product is closer to the E than it is to the Federal.

    I'm liking the information that Shawn Bednard / Director of Media Relations & Broadcaster for the Marksmen, is getting out on twitter, FB, instagram & the web site. He has been showing up at community events to get the brand out in the public. I'm looking forward for that enthusiasm to carry over with the game day staff this year.

    Aaron McFarling wrote a nice column in today’s Roanoke Times on the Dawgs! i remember him saying two years ago that the question on the Dawgs was sustainability. I guess they answered that question. Roanoke Times

    I can't vouch for you with the landscaping, etc... but with the t-shirt slinging I can attest you are first rate. Nothing gets the crowd at the Crown fired up like your golf cart coming to a sliding stop and then the sling-shot band gets pulled back with a t-shirt aimed towards them. I was disappointed they curtailed the t-shirt slinging last year. I always enjoyed handing the ones I snagged off to a youngster.

    You'd think being downstairs for 19 years most of them slinging t-shirts, I'd be considered for a position!!!!! TV/radio engineering... Landscaping, classic car restorations, farming, twin raising....I'm in there.... Brain surgery, not so much!

    Also seen pictures of Massimo Lamacchia with Jeff Jones. Not sure if they played together in France or just friends. Be nice if he would recruit him back to Roanoke!!

    I think Thomas Pope's twitter account gives the name of the Friday announcement. Looks like a pretty good signing.

    The content of that post makes it look like it originated at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. The Wolves are selling tickets and recently announced a free agent camp. Then there's this: City Council to consider new Watertown Wolves season contract

    Hope the front office is not equating the Dawgs to being unfair and end up killing the Marksmen: "Not to be confused with foe, FOE is an acronym to describe that type of enemy in a video game that is too strong to be fair and often winds up killing you when you encounter it."

    I was just noticing scheduling with you guys again. It is front loaded with you again. We play each other 12 times before January 19th. Then play one time again on March 23rd. Not sure why they play almost all of them in the first few months of season. Was the same way last year.

    Tyler Palmer is signed with the Worcester Railers in ECHL. Russell is staying in Boston and not planning to play this season. No word on Jeke, Bauer, or Flaherty.

    Thats definately the one i've been waiting on. Signings are shaping up well for the Dawgs! Nice to see we are getting an assistant coach. If he coaches anything like Bremner its a good sign! I'm so ready for October! Welcome back Brad Barone and new AC Michael Harris!

    I agree. Thought Spraggs had a lot left in the tank. But having a little baby to take care of probably had a lot to do with his decision. I loved his aggressiveness toward the end of the season and hate how it ended for him. Time to move on in the next chapter of his life. Wish nothing but the best for his family!

    Best of luck to Riley Spraggs and former Dawg Mike Moroso on their retirements. Wish nothing but the best for both of them!

    IMO, it was a very bad move for Ms. Tombergs to be quoted as saying: "Do I love hockey? No." And to miss an opportunity in a public challenge to the local business community to display her love of & commitment to Moline - by instead including a photo of herself in New York City posing with the iconic Fearless Girl statue - smacks of self-promotion rather than a declaration of her intent to make the Storm a success in the Quad Cities. You're down by two goals, Gwen, and the season is still 7 weeks away. Better tighten up the gear & focus, and hope your team can rally to pull this one out.

    Twitter: It's Teaser Time! This silhouette, who is a male that plays hockey, once scored a goal against future Marksmen teammate @Jasonpooch...but lost 7-4. #FearTheFox Facebook:Activate your brainpower early this week - it's teaser time! This returning player is familiar with 14 percent of the wonders of the world, has 14 career playoff points, and had 14 PIMs in 2013. Happy guessing! Easy one. I'll give more clues instead of the answer. The game in question was played on Nov. 2, 2017. He also had 2 assists in the game. Future teammate Michael Casale had a goal for the other team. This returning player scored his one goal as a Marksmen when he crossed the blue line and attempted to send the puck around the boards to the back of the net. The goalie for KNX left the crease in anticipation of the puck going behind the net. At about the blue line the puck hit one of the trick spots on the Crown boards and took about a 45 degree turn and headed directly for the net. The goalie couldn't reverse course in time and the puck settled into the net inside the post for a goal that helped the Marksmen beat KNX 6-4 on Mar. 16, 2018
