  1. Can someone please explain why Drobot is still on the team? 20 games, 1 point and a +/- of a -15. Those stats are horrible. Maybe Esposito can find a way to utilize his talents.
  2. I don't think so either and the stats under Esposito are worse, both offensively and defensively.
  3. Either way, the final score is 10-2 in favor of Macon......Let's hope we see a much better effort tomorrow. Could it actually get any worse? I guess the only positive is that it was a road game and nobody back here was subjected to watching that crap a** effort in person.
  4. is there any chance of Drobot ever getting traded or released? I still don't know what value he brings to the team.
  5. So what about Ryan Cruthers? He's the one who helped bring Mazzolini here. Also, as Director of Hockey Operations, he was instrumental in putting together this mess of a team. Does Cruthers get a free pass?
  6. SPHL Attendance

    I'm very disappointed with our attendance so far in Fayetteville. I thought with the new front office and increased marketing that we'd be a lot higher at this point. I know we traditionally draw much better after the holiday season but maybe it has a little to do with having a miserable team so far. We're ahead of where we were last year so I guess improvement is still improvement so something is better than nothing. Hopefully we get the numbers back up both in the W column and seats filled.
  7. The same can be said for both teams with the upcoming weekend. It's essentially an 8 point weekend if either team can win both games in regulation. I know it's still way early in the season but these 2 games have the potential to put a little distance between our teams in the standings. Our guys will have had 4-5 days of quality practice with Esposito so we'll see if we've made progress. If we happen to win both games, I'd say a coaching change would be a given for you guys.
  8. Goalie Signed

    Brian Billett, Ice Bears goalie, arrested Hopefully he's cleaned himself up because he is a decent goalie.
  9. Why did you have to bring Fayetteville into this thread?
  10. Listless Marksmen dominated by Peoria 3-0 So two games into the Phil Esposito era and we're 0-2 with 1 goal for and 11 goals against. Not very good! These players are professionals so there's no excuse for the pathetic performances over the past couple of games. How do you go from three decent showings last weekend going 2-0-1 to the past two games? The parity in the league makes it very difficult to play catch up once you've begun to dig yourself a hole.
  11. Roster News

    Ouch! This isn't exactly a very good thing for a D corps that's statistically the worst in the league. The Harris suspension is probably one game for getting a continuing altercation penalty with under a minute to go in last night's game. Hopefully he got his money's worth on it since he'll be sitting tonight.......Who knows how long Campagna will be with Reading but I'm guessing he won't be here for either game this weekend since Reading is at Wheeling tonight and tomorrow night.
  12. But on the bright side, we are showing consistency. Looking at the +/- from last night, we had players who were a 0, -1, -2, -3, -4, -5 and a -6.
  13. Actually, he played for Watertown last season of the FHL when Esposito was his coach.
  14. Wow! All those players were here when Jeff Bes was coach and none of them came back although some were either trade during the season or released but it was still during the reign of Bes.
