  1. Purse-checking they’ve been doing for a couple years, along with hand-wanding. I’m more concerned about how they handle the bins for phones and such in poorly lit, crowded conditions.
  2. As opposed to making sure they did their jobs in this league? If you can't do, teach; if you can't teach, direct; if you can't direct, preside.
  3. Define level of hockey. In the early years of the SPHL, the lowest attendance-getters averaged over 1,400 - including Winston-Salem, ironcally, lastly only one season. And Pee Dee, who lasted 2 seasons. Then Jacksonville's attendance dropped to 1,100 and they were gone the next year. Twin City tried surviving on 1,100 fans - and lasted 2 years. Since then, the lowest any team has averaged is Augusta at 1,600+ in their inaugural season - folding after never achieving more than 1,900 in 3 seasons. Compare that to the FHL, where only 3 teams average more than 1,000 in attendance - and one just barely. This is not to say that attendance is the only factor affecting a team's viability - or level of hockey, but it's got to be a strong contributor to it.
  4. We’ve got the ushers with stop signs, but that’s only effective for the first section. Once they let folks through during a stoppage, play has resumed before they clear the the walkway farther down.

  6. He was likely referring to this: ... as the only one who took the bait.
  7. Wow. Rant over much? And ”Loser points” - known as OTL (or OverTime Loss) points to the rest of the hockey world?

  10. It seems like back-to-back games can cause teams to agree to switch colors as well.
  11. Actually, he was with Knoxville in the preseason, then he was signed by Wheeling.
  12. Split off from Friday's QCS @ PEO game thread.
