  1. Arena football is about as stable as the FHL.
  2. There's only really three teams and it'll come down to the Marksmen and Swampdogs.. I really don't think the Cape Fear Heroess, indoor footnall, really have much of a chance when up against the hockey and baseball teams. I think the voting could be close but my guess is the Marksmen finish in 1st place for Fayetteville's top sports team. As for top venue, I'd say it would go to Fayetteville Motor Speedway!!!!!
  3. I can't speak on behalf of everyone else but I don't think Bes should be welcomed back here. He left here to be closer to his wife and kid but now that he was fired (mutally parting ways is another way of saying fired), he is rumored to be coming back here. While I can respect him wanting to get a job to be closer to his family, the only reason he would come back here is because nothing else is available for a hockey coach that can't win in the playoffs. The decision on who to hire as the next head coach is up to Chuck Norris. I hope he doesn't go with Bes but if he decides to bring him back,there will be a lot of pissed off people. There are so many other better choices out there than Bes. Also, it would be interesting to hear the real reason that him and Pensacola's owner, Greg Harris, decided to 'mutually' part ways. I'd bet it wasn't mutual and there's a lot not being said. Bes opts not to return to coach Marksmen
  4. Since we don't have a coach or director of hockey operations, who came up with the list?
  5. Why is Drobot going to be protected? It's not like any other team is going to pick him up.
  6. 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.
  7. Mazzolini, Esposito and Bierchen are all available as head coaching candidates and each one has SPHL experience too.
  8. Bes is coming back which means so is more playoff disappointment,
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. That's a good question and I don't know the answer.
  12. 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.
