  2. Rivermen in for long haul, sign lease with Civic Center through 2020 by Dave Eminian - JournalStar Read more at: http://www.pjstar.com/sports/20170519/rivermen-in-for-long-haul-sign-lease-with-civic-center-through-2020
  3. That, I think, would require a reversal of what has brought several ECHL teams to our league over the years - the cost of dropping attendance. A state-of-the-art 10,000 seat arena would not only attract entertainment revenue opportunities the city is currently locked out of, but it can't help but increase attendance at hockey games - attracting everyone from families excited to check out a new entertainment complex to those that stopped coming because they were tired of sitting in those rickety old wooden seats. Whether or not that would be enough to warrant a jump to the E would remain to be seen.
  4. Or, you could just link to them. Like this and this. Unless you've made even better ones since then. Since I'm linking, here are mine as well.
  5. From the mayor herself, today: But, to answer your question, claims of detailed inside information with nothing offered to support them are generally met with some level of skepticism. You do seem to be pretty knowledgeable about the information you do supply, though. So I will try to be less condescending, with my apologies.
  6. I'll agree with you on that last point. When nearly 2 years comes around next year and nothing has happened, I'll be genuinely worried about the status of the project.
  7. Sounds like a single, isolated incident.
  8. ...which started with "I have extrapolation of conclusions". Where's P.O. when you need her?

  16. That makes sense, except for one thing. Craigen posted a letter to the Season Ticket Holders on Friday discussing at length his analysis of this last season, his recruiting plans for the upcoming season, and the closing comment: "see you in October." Make sure to read the News Sentinel article if you are interested in Craigen's thoughts after his release.
  17. The Ice Bears Protected List for the 2017-18 season was made official Friday, just not released in public channels. The list has found it's way to the Sin Bin Off Season Player Tracker page and matches the guesses posted above.
  18. Yep. Was just waiting for the dust to settle.
  19. Ice Bears part ways with coach Mike Craigen By Phil Kaplan, Sports strategist - News Sentinel Read more at: http://www.knoxnews.com/story/sports/local/2017/05/15/ice-bears-part-ways-coach-mike-craigen/322618001/
  20. Fixed. I was thinking PeeDee's logo was the same as Twin City's, forgetting they'd started out with the woodpecker. Do't know what happened to Asheville. The whole thing took less than an hour.
