  1. Yes, was going to say the same thing, I know attendance hasn't been as great the past couple of years, but was shocked to see this when I looked at the site a couple of minutes ago. Hopefully someone will come in and bring the team back in 2019-2020, but as with others what looks promising at 1st doesn't always end up with a happy ending. Thoughts are with all the Riverkings fans, we here in Roanoke had to go 10 years before we got another shot.
  2. Yeah was surprised we were playing Richmond and no fights. That years team had over 100 fighting majors with McDonald and Belza leading the way.
  3. I have a Shawn Limpright Roanoke Express game-worn jersey that I paid $350 for.
  4. Brought back some memories for sure. Recognized most of the player throughout the game looking forward to the seeing the next one you upload. Thanks
  5. I don't think they are coming this year, do like Roanoke did and have a year to get in the community and build their brand. Looks like from reading the article the team won't be called the "Mallards". While I was at 1st disappointed we had to wait a year before we started playing, looking back it was the right decision.
  6. Which games did you get? I've seen some on Ebay for sale before. There is a lot of 9 games out there now for $19.99 look to be from different seasons.
  7. That would be awesome.
  8. I completed it. One big thing I recommended is that season tickets holders get free parking and making it even more enticing for fans that attend every game to purchase season tickets.
  9. Wanted to congratulate the Rivermen on the series win. Best team I seen in the league this year from top to bottom. Go get the Cup!! Proud of my Dawgs they really turned the corner once Bremner became the coach, definitely headed in the right direction. Congrats again!!
  10. Let's Go Dawgs!! Extend this series tonight and force a winner take all tomorrow night, then the Rivermen will really feel the heat!!
  11. Pretty evenly played game by both teams. Greg is right, Peoria made us pay for those mistakes and we couldn't capitalize more on Peoria's mistakes. I thought Peoria got the better of the play the 1st 2 periods and we outplayed them in the 3rd. Schneider gambled on pinching the blue line and lost which created the 2 on 1 for the GWG. Don't understand the attendance at 1204, but maybe they actually count tickets sold and not comped. I would say 2,000 maybe a little less but not much. The side the season tickets holders had was pretty full the side behind the benches about half full. Website says it holds 3,000 fans.
  12. Leaving in about an hour, see everyone there, looks like it's going to be a decent crowd tonight.
  13. It's playoff hockey, all the pressure is on Peoria they are the best team in the league that now has to survive a best 2 out of 3 game series to a team that has been one of the better teams in the league the 2nd half of the season. If the Dawgs steal Game 1 tonight that pressure gets ratcheted up even further.
  14. I agree, the one thing you always have to remember about any minor league sport, fan favorites will always come and go. Best wishes to Riley Spraggs, while I may not personally agree I trust the staff especially after the turnaround this team displayed after Ftorek was let go.
