  1. In light of recent remarks made on social media and elsewhere, we'd like to post some friendly information: EVERYONE is welcome to sign up for an account and "lurk" on the forums. We've had players, coaches, parents of players, fans of all types, and front office staff who have used these forums from time to time. Most simply sign up for an account and never post, or post under a pseudonym that doesn't indicate who they are. Privacy is guaranteed and no one sees what you do not want them to see. EVERYONE is welcome to use the forums for whatever they like, so long as it is within the guidelines. We like to keep things 'nice and tidy' but we are not here to micromanage. It's simple: Keep it civil, have fun, not at others' expense. EVERYONE has an opinion. Just like EVERYONE has belly buttons. Posting an opinion is not prohibited (unless it's a personal attack). We're all here to enjoy the camaraderie, the sharing of information and stories, and general chat that makes us a popular place this time of year. We're all adults here. EVERYONE is free to post whatever information they have, so long as it is from a REPUTABLE SOURCE. There are some sources out there that are trustworthy, and others that are a notch above The Onion. If anyone posts information about trades, rumors, news, etc, cite your source! Failure to do so may result in removal of the post. EVERYONE is free to share the information they get from our forums to anyone they like. We enjoy the publicity. Send it to family, friends, Facebook acquaintances, Twitter compadres, you-name-it. Tell them where you got it! We'd just like for them to join us as well. Again, they can lurk if that's all they want to do. And remember...
  2. Will try to tackle over Thanksgiving. Having home remodeling done this week (floors and windows) and it's a bitch of a job right now with work responsibilities as well.
  3. One of the features we have on these boards is a road trip map, to help people visiting your area find some places to check out while their in town.

Thanks!

  13. He designed the Ice Bears logo as well I believe. Probably most of the team logos were by him. Except for this abomination:
  14. share it tweet it mail it NEW THIS SEASON!!! You Asked, We Listened! Ice Bears Policy Improvements Begin TONIGHT! The use of cameras is now permitted at Ice Bears games-- provided the cameras do not have professional lenses or flash attachments. Lenses longer than 6 inches (roughly the length of a dollar bill) are considered “professional”. A Knoxville Ice Bears Media Pass is required for any camera or lens larger than 6 inches. The use of recording devices (both audio and visual) are prohibited at Knoxville Ice Bears games. Fans are not permitted to post personal game action photographs on any web site or provide footage to any media outlet without the written consent of the team. Beginning at 6:30 PM each game night, all “Junior Ice Bears” fans are welcome down on the floor for warm ups! Fans will be allowed to “ice level” at 6:30 PM until the 1st buzzer at approximately 7:10 PM. We ask that you please respect your fellow fans who have purchased seats in the VIP boxes by leaving the boxes the way you found them. In the event that the ticket holder arrives to their box early, we kindly ask that you find another spot to watch the pre-game activities. Our Coliseum Event Staff will be on the floor to provide assistance. Thanks for your suggestions! Now all that's left to say is LET'S GO ICE BEARS!!! We've been told our GIF game is strong.

  17. I hate to see him go. Didn't always agree with him but respected his position and his job was not always easy. Had fun with him at times when I would see him. Fly high!
  18. Some users voiced concern that "Orphan" was a bit harsh of a name for this forum, so if you have one that you think works better, let's hear it!
