  1. New Quad City team

    It isn't too bad on travel since when most teams travel that far, they tend to play 3-4 games in that area. So yes it's a 16 hr bus ride but if we can get 3-4 games in between the three 'midwest' cities on one trip, then it's not as bad.
  2. Kerr Resigns

    Mazzolini, Esposito and Bierchen are all available as head coaching candidates and each one has SPHL experience too.
  3. Bes is coming back which means so is more playoff disappointment,
  4. FHL's Future Unclear?

    Has the FHL's future ever been clear???
  5. What if

    That's a good question. The only coach we've ever heard for longer than two seasons in Fayetteville was Tommy Stewart. We've also only had two coaches that were here for two full seasons and they were Derek Booth and Jeff Bes. (It's three coaches if you include Todd Gordon, which was the era of the Force and the only reason Gordo didn't come back was because Lynn Nathan folded the team.
  6. Jeff Bes is just not a very good coach come playoff time. He proved that with the Surge, it continued with the FireAntz and now he's proving it with the Ice Flyers. His teams have been to the playoffs five times prior to this season and have won only one round out of six. He's a decent coach in the regular season but come playoff time, don't expect many positive results if he's coaching your team.
  7. and a jersey auction too.....
  8. New Coach and staff please!

    That's a good question and I don't know the answer.
  9. New Coach and staff please!

    I don't know if they'll bring back Bierchen or not. It's going to be interesting to see if they bring him back, spend the $$$ to bring in a proven coach or go with another rookie coach. Things could never be as bad as they were this season.
  10. A Win?

    Brett was one of the best sports reporters Fayetteville has ever had. His coverage of hockey in Fayetteville was outstanding. The Force, and later the FireAntz, were always in headlines for both games and feature articles on the goings on of the team and organization. Once Brett left, the coverage of hockey in Fayetteville has rapidly gone downhill.
  11. Ha-Ha!!!! If there wasn't an SPHL rule that says anyone who has played a game or more in the NHL isn't allowed to play in the SPHL then I:d be all for it,
  12. Interesting fact is that his younger brother is a phenomenal rookie playing right wing tallying 45 points in 75 games so far this season with the Chicago Blackhawks.
  13. A Win?

    How is it Marky's birthday party this Sat night when the team name wasn't changed to the Marksmen until sometime in May of 2017?
  14. A Win?

    It took him a while because he forgot what it was like to write an article after a win since it had been so long. LOL! Seriously though, ACC basketball traditionally gets better coverage, especially this time of year, which is sad because the Marksmen have more of an economic impact in this area than basketball.
