  1. 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.
  2. and a jersey auction too.....
  3. New Coach and staff please!

    That's a good question and I don't know the answer.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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,
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. Don’t ever make a comment like that on here ever again. He can go start a team in Winston Salem or anywhere for that matter.
  11. SPHL expansion 2018-19

    Winston Salem would be a great fit but I'm not sure how a Barry Soskin owned team would be very welcome in the SPHL. I think it's worth a try and they'd fit in perfectly with Roanoke and Fayetteville as geographic rivals. I know we used to have a really 'friendly' rivalry with Winston Salem in the past.
  12. Fay/Evansville #44

    But they didn't assemble the worst team in the history of Fayetteville hockey. Sure, they didn't do a very good job of filling seats the last few seasons but we also never had as much trouble winning games. The current ownership group has done a phenomenal job of marketing, coming up with new promotions and generating excitement for hockey once again. Now if they could dramatically improve the on ice product, all will be good to go.
  13. Fay/Evansville #44

    But look at the bright side......With last night's loss, we're one game closer to setting the mark for worst ever winning % in Fayetteville hockey history. Oh wait, that's not something you want to see happen.
  14. Nah, he had more than enough time.
  15. There's 11 games left and we have yet to win back to back games. It's hard to say who to bring back or go with a complete rebuild at this point or if the problem is the constant changing of the coaches or the players since we've gone through so many of each.
