  1. Could we not turn every thread into a front office bashing and talking about the poor attendance? I think we all by now realize the attendance is bad and most do not think enough is being done by the FireAntz front office. The team is playing great hockey right now and that is something to be happy about. I do wish more people were there to see them but at this point, we have beat this attendance and front office horse into the ground a few times already. Let's all try to use some energy to get more people to the games by bringing people and telling people about them.
  2. I agree on the ticket sales/pricing but the team does not get a cut of the concession sales unfortunately. The team relies on ticket sales and merchandise sales for their money. But as I mentioned in another thread earlier this year, 5,000 fans paying $5 is better than a 1,000 fans paying $13.
  3. Horn is going to be a BIG addition to the FireAntz down the stretch. The kid has serious offensive skill. Great patience and a snipe on the game winner in OT.
  4. You know Bes does not release player info during the week very often. He waits until game night to officially sign players. We should know maybe as soon as Thursday night if he has somebody! I could see Bes maybe signing a Curtis Martinu to a contract if he hasn't found anybody to give Bonar somebody to back him up in case of illness/injury that could do a little more than an EBUG.
  5. Fans often are quick to panic after a loss and then turn around the next game and think the same team has a championship chance because they won. The reality is that teams will always have ups and downs in a season and not all games are going to end with a W.....what I like to see are trends and over the last 15 games, the Antz are trending in the right direction with a record of 10-4-1 over their last 15!!
  6. I thought everybody was saying the Antz were doomed as a .500 team and in trouble Friday night...... This years team has shown an ability to respond to adversity and rebound better than other past teams. We have been climbing the standings since Bes made the moves and I think you will find this team continuing to climb up the standings as the season enters the important 2nd half.
  7. There is always a chance he didn't report.....
  8. Geez...yes it was a bad 3rd period but this team we have now with the current roster is actually well above a .500 team. I believe we are 8-4-1 or something close to that once the roster moves were made. We are better than a .500 team...I expect the guys will come out tonight ready to put that game behind them. One game doesn't suddenly make this team .500......
  9. Absolutely moves in the right direction! Do we know who specifically as far as returning fan favorites are going to be in attendance! This would be something good to advertise in my opinion!
  10. Aren't these two posts pretty contradictory?? Your reputation on the boards is vindicated with posts like these.
  11. Do we need another thread about the FireAntz front office? I think the other thread you started titled FireAntz Front Office is enough....
  12. Yep it's hard to make changes when the people calling the shots cannot be ousted because they are owners as well.
  13. Great road win in a building in which we historically stink and rarely win....great defensive battle. Antz controlled play much of the game but Billett was strong in net for Knoxville. FireAntz have proven to be deadly in the shootout this season.
  14. It is pretty close and it has quite a few options for hotels. It is right off of Interstate 95 which makes it convenient as well. Again, it isn't the nicest of areas but for a night stay, I would say it is fine.
  15. If I were you with 2 kids, I would stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Hope Mills. Plenty of restuarants, etc around and a short 10 minute drive to the Crown Coliseum. It looks like you can get a room for just a little over $100 a night right now at this particular hotel. It's pretty new and nice! The Crown Coliseum and the surrounding area is not an area I would want to stay in a hotel. Just my 2 cents....
