  1. I read Bus League Hockey to see what stories come out of them and some are pretty good sources and some make me wonder abut things in the SPHL and FHL and is the SPHL getting into a bidding war with the FHL for cities, just wondering what you all have heard on these stories. I have some pretty close ties to the Birmingham Bulls and they never mentioned any of this. https://busleaguehockey.com/2018/06/06/report-the-fhl-nearly-beat-the-sphl-to-birmingham-alabama-last-season/ https://busleaguehockey.com/2018/06/06/sources-fhl-focus-full-tilt-shifting-south/
  2. I don't know about a non profit running a sport team, but I do think that the name change had a lot to do with the team demise. No sity identity and to this day I still call them the Memphis Riverkings as that is who they have always been and will be in my opinion.
  3. What the word on street is NBA G League schedule
  4. I have a feeling that we are going to see Quad City in the SPHL, due to fact that Evansville and Peoria need a closer team to play to help with travel cost. I may be wrong on this but I have that feeling as it will happen from who I have chatted with over the past week.
  5. So now we know the real reason for the departure of the Columbus Cottonmouths!!

  7. I like for the early rounds to be best of three and finals best of five, and all the arenas be given the dates that the playoff will run and only schedule events that will not require the ice to be taken down until they are eliminated from the playoffs. I know it's a dream but sensible solution IMO

  9. Ok, me and a few friends made our first trip to Birmingham and I don't think it will be our last. First of all the place holds 4,100 by the SPHL Media Guide and the announced attendance was 4,092 and I would say that was close to being accurate. Seats are all chair back and I will say to do what they did in the short amount of time I they had is pretty remarkable. I want to Alabama Slammers game years back and it was no way as nice at this is. Fans of Bull are passionate just like Havoc fans and there was plenty of back and forth between the fans during the game which make great atmosphere Action up close and right on top it in the arena and really there is not a bad seat in house. I will say this, if they continue to use this building it will be an intimidating place to play in the future, if Birmingham can average 4,000 a night and have a competitive team this will be a place that teams will not like to go to. Just like to thank all the fans of Bulls that we were around and met some great people and a had a great time. If you have not been I suggest going next year and take in a game
  10. I was in Birmingham last night and I heard the same thing, some people that have interest in Birmingham also looking at Columbus franchise as well as Quad City.
