  1. What about a couple hundred bucks for security for the officials?
  2. They gave up hockey for poker, that should tell you something right there. Besides, Sports Entertainment (wrestling) is in their name (Entertainment Sports Programming Network). Besides, cable TV channels are now just marginalizing to whatever programming makes them money. A&E (Arts & Entertainment) has more LivePD than any other program I can think of. GSN is 24/7 Steve Harvey Family Feud, TruTV (formerly CourtTV) is just a bunch of idiots playing Jackass light. TLC (The Learning Channel) has fat people and kiddy pageants, and Music Television............. Full disclosure: I work for Discovery/TLC.
  3. $45 donated to the campaign before it got shut down. I'm wondering who pulled the plug.
  4. I don't know how it is in your arena, but In know that Knoxville has police stationed at the exits for both away team and officials when they leave the ice, that's standard protocol. How the FHL couldn't make that a rule is beyond me. Just common sense nowadays.
  5. The cameraman's probably gonna get fired because of this.
  6. Nicholls shoves the ref (arms crossed chest bump) and the linesman (correctly) comes in and shoves his ass back, then Nicholls rips the linesman's shirt off. He could've been a deranged fan for all they knew (not that he's not deranged already). He had the audacity to say he was shoved, well, hell yeah when you get in their way and act like an ass, you're gonna get shoved. Dumbass should be banned from the league for this.
  7. Guess who just made ESPN??? http://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/26231216/minors-owner-physical-altercation-refs
  8. And this situation adds another tangent to the equation. Now that Winston-Salem has done well in the F(*d-up)HL, does what occurred this weekend now bring in to play the possibility that they seek an out and join with the SPHL? While attendance there is below what it has been for an SPHL average, considering their past history in the SPHL, they have better attendance #s now. Does the FHL indeed suffer irreparable damage from this, or will they kiss & make up with the officiating? STILL...no official word from the league about this. Very telling... Probably more like "We refuse to press charges and will treat this as a civil dispute".
  9. The goal that started the brouhaha: https://busleaguehockey.com/2019/03/11/video-see-the-controversial-goal-that-set-off-sundays-incident-between-carolina-and-elmira/
  10. This is the visual representation of the FHL: https://i.imgur.com/FPrM4o6.gifv
  11. Allegedly from the head of officiating for the FHL:
  12. From Facebook: 00 Radar $1000 2 Boukal $1500 5 Pszenyczny $2100 8 Bronner $1500 9 Bennett $1400 12 Nimanis $1350 13 Fregeau $1300 14 Smutek $1400 17 Graves $2000 19 McKeown $1300 21 Mills $2400 22 Tsicos $1200 27 Rowland $1300 29 Minx $1700 31 Mulder $1750 35 Di Salvo $1800 37 Yakura $1100 44 Pszenyczny $1350 52 Walsh $1500 61 Kacerosky $1100 63 Casale $1400 78 Scully $1850 83 Beaudry $1800 93 Gaul $1350 19 Blank plus KISS tickets $2200
  13. Does anyone have the price list for what these sold for? I'm hearing that $2,000 per Jersey was average.
  14. I read an article on our local news page about Graceland going through some expansion and this nugget was in there as well: Anybody have some insight on this proposed arena? The article said "area" but I assume it's "arena"
  15. The guy's been punished enough, let it go and give him a chance to play again.

  17. So I visited le Colisee for the first time since the new lights were installed. I absolutely hope they are planning to install more. I noticed a lot of dark spots around the ice and the far edge of the boards had a shadow that went all along the dasher. The face-off circle to the left of the Ice Bears goalie (defend twice) had a darker shadow due to the safety netting end being bunched up in that area. There definitely needs to be more adequate lighting placed in order to eliminate these shadows.
