    For the last 5 years I emailed and asked why the hockey scores were not called in to the 5 or so TV stations that serve Fay and outlaying areas, free publicity right there, they do it for minor league baseball, my efforts fell on deaf ears

    1191 on Friday against Knoxville, Only 1545 fans on Saturday against Roanoke, what in the world is going on, this better improve guys or hockey will never last in Fayetteville. 1545 on a Saturday may be a record or close to it. We have heard all the excuses before like football or it will pick up later. Ticket prices are good, the entertainment is excellent, the promotions are good but where are all the hockey fans in Fayetteville, don't think just signing a lease is a guarantee a team will survive. The Crown is not even worth opening for so few people. We may not be drawing as many people as some teams in the beer league, FHL. Sure hope this improves before it is too late.

    I think the more passive style that hockey has went to at the higher levels has made it to the sphl and in my opinion it isn't going to go well here. I'm not saying I want to see bench clearing brawls at every game but your average fan isn't going to go to many games watching 5'9 160 pound guys skating around in circles. That's just my opinion

    Alex Murray definitely kept Fayetteville in the game. With only five defensemen, Hauswirth was having to play defense last night. He made some great saves and redirects. Max Cook seemed quite rusty, but I'm sure he will find his stride soon. Knoxville, like Peoria, didn't play up their usual "physical style" of play. Some good checks from both teams, but pretty boring game...and there was no WAY there were 1,191 people in attendance at the Crown.

    Lack of advertising (other than social media) is hurting. Much fewer corporate sponsors is hurting. Hiring all new staff with only ONE having any ties to Fayetteville is hurting. Upsetting so many dedicated season ticket holders and loyal fans is hurting. Fayetteville desperately needs butts in seats EVERY game...and believe me, the numbers reported are inflated. There were less people than what was posted.

    Because player of the game and only thing constant so far in our season, Tanner Creel 42 of 44 saves. Gave up 2 goals in first 5 minutes then shut them down. Definitely most impressive player so far for us.

    I can see some people don't go because of football but like you said most of it was over here in Roanoke too and it's still low on attendance on Friday nights compared to Saturdays. I think people are just warn out after working all week and people are more likely to go out on Saturday nights after resting up on Fridays.

    Just because of Friday night's power outage? I'd be finding that main breaker panel every night.

    This was the 3rd goal.....but video doesn't start back far enough to show Murray clearing the puck.

    With a 1-4-1 start to their inaugural season, I would think: "Storm, you suck!" would be universally applicable.

    Maybe we can pick up the guy who was released for Bakker. Joe Masonius if he doesn't get claimed in the ECHL. He played at UCONN with Tanner Creel and Jesse Schwartz from our team. Just some wishful thinking.

    Definately, one of those guys you love to hate on any opposing team but great to have on your own team. Seems like Dion, Mele, and Murray developing nice relationship on and off the ice and now in the radio studio every week. Enjoyed them very much last two weeks on Greg Roberts Live. Even started where you can ask them questions to be answered on the show. Very enjoyable!! 6:00pm to 6:30pm et every Wednesday evening!

    I honestly don't understand why the RiverKings folded. I'd like to see them all come back though...and I wish a team in Asheville NC would come back as well.
