  1. It was released this afternoon. http://railyarddawgs.pointstreaksites.com/view/roanokerailyarddawgs/news-1147/news_485957
  2. A total of 23 Friday-Saturday dates along with Thanksgiving night. Thanksgiving night used to be HUGE for the Express. Hope the same holds true for the Dawgs. http://railyarddawgs.pointstreaksites.com/view/roanokerailyarddawgs/news-1147/news_485874
  3. Ouch. That may have been true in the past, but I've been really impressed with the new owners. They seem to have a good connection with the Fayetteville community and their resumes are certainly impressive. In listening to the press conference, they seem "to get it." I expect to see a huge improvement in Fayetteville's attendance in the future. I'm certainly pulling for them - we need every team in the league to be financially strong.
  4. Even though they may be our rivals, I will admit that this video game me chills. Very, very well done, Fayetteville.
  5. Very, very impressed with the new owners and leadership. They seem to "get it" and I think they will do a great job of getting butts in seats and creating excitement in Fayetteville. Great job with the press conference.
  6. The Fayetteville Marksmen - I like it.
  7. Posted on the Dawg website earlier today. http://pointstreaksites.com/view/roanokerailyarddawgs/news-1147/news_485622
  8. That's interesting. Here's the link to the story you referenced. http://www.pjstar.com/sports/20170508/rivermen-set-protected-roster-list-prep-for-sphl-expansion-draft It wouldn't make sense for Peoria to release their protected list early, but there's also no reason for Sam to say they were due on Friday if they weren't. Oh well, I guess we'll know soon enough.
  9. That's interesting. Sam was talking about this upcoming Friday. Even mentioned he was waiting on some updates from particular players with regards to future plans.
  10. FWIW, Sam Ftorek spoke to the Roanoke Booster Club tonight and said they were due Friday at 3:00
  11. I think you're right. I believe the crash would be considered workers comp and typically the premiums on workers comp are based on history of payouts. If the payout from the crash was substantial (and I would think that it was) then the premiums would be substantial.
  12. Whenever I see Gintoli, I think of Jim Kruger's blog post about him: “If that’s not a hit to the head then I don’t know what is”- My hearing impaired teammate, as he skated back to the bench disheveled with no helmet, a black eye, and his hearing aids dangling off of his ears.
  13. Congratulations, Macon. Great season.
  14. CONGRATULATIONS to Rail Yard Dawg Peter Gintoli and his Team USA Teammates for winning the 2017 World Deaf Championship Saturday night over Team Canada. Peter was actually chosen as Team Captain and scored the first goal in the Gold Medal game and his brother scored 3 goals. as they led Team USA to the Gold!!!!! As a side note, his sister played on the Woman's Team. http://buffalonews.com/2017/04/29/u-s-top-canada-to-win-world-deaf-hockey/ http://www.ctpost.com/sports/article/Deaf-Ice-Hockey-Championships-special-for-Gintoli-11077043.php
  15. CONGRATS, MACON. Finish it tomorrow night!
