1 pointI am very pleased to announce that we have reached our funding goal and will be around another season! To all of you on the donor list I can't thank you enough for your contributions. There is no way I could do this without you guys! Your generosity allows everyone who visits this forum throughout the season (and it's quite a few) to enjoy talking about the sport they love with other people of similar interests and that's what this place is all about. These communities have become almost extinct because of social media but I think this place offers a more home feel that social media can't offer. Obviously, many of you agree! I look forward to being here with all of you for the 2017/18 SPHL season. Any further contributions will be applied to next years funding goal. Please take a moment to thank all these people for making this place stick around! 2017/18 Season Donors Photekut(2) tmwrk7(6) kittrellrunner(2) Roanokehockey qwacker2 Marksmen119 PlannedObsolescence FIREANTZICEMAN Cratefirs JMC-STL hockeydoc(2) knoxhox Redjackson JrIceBears Macguy Speedracer Fwolfe33 maconwinger gliderider twistedbrass Geekwithabass Will Sams MarksmenArtist briton LumpsRGood fred Jimangie0 hhfan antman Oldcat SASRACE devildog89 Thank you for your support!
1 pointIf you extract the 1st letters of the OP's first, second, twentieth & twenty-second word, you get "TtFn." Clearly code for the hit 'n' run style we've come to expect of this recurring topic.
1 pointSo I wasn't the only one whom had an issue trying to understand this post?
1 pointGood grief- what phrase(s) are associated with what other phrase(s) in this post?
1 pointWondering how many times a dead horse can be beaten????????
1 pointmaybe it's me, but the fact that there are only 7 players actually signed, and NONE of them is a goaltender is cause for concern
1 pointThis league's business model is unsustainable as it stands at the moment. The Columbus situation proves that. Member teams need to be able to prove that they can cover the full expense of playing the season without selling a single ticket with a performance bond before they are approved to play. Teams must have adequate staffing to sell tickets and sponsorships, do public relations, create a first-class website, and provide a quality webcast. Teams must share best practices for sponsorship, group and season ticket sales. The league needs to invest in educating team staffers in sales techniques and marketing. Anyone wanting to buy into the league would be vetted to the point that it would feel intrusive, because it has to be. Can't have another Danny Smith.
