  1. Maybe getting cut was a wake up call. I certainly like what I see so far.
  2. Good for them. Of course, if a team was willing to make a trade for them, that means they will probably never return to the SPHL, but it also means they're one step closer to their dream. Congrats to both.
  3. Drobot

    I specifically watched him tonight. He skated one shift in each period and made an ass out of himself by skating past Bronner when he was in the box and challenging him to go. I'm really surprised that they use up a roster spot on him.
  4. Channel 7 had a great video of the goal in question - it clearly did not go in, but it's not yet on their website. What an awesome effort by the boys (again). Zenzola and Mele are simply playing out of their minds versus Fayetteville. Hopefully, they can keep it going tomorrow night in Knoxville.
  5. Empty Arena Game

    That's actually the second time Charlotte has done that in the past two years. From the link below: "It’s actually the second time in recent years the Checkers will be playing a home game before no fans. On Jan. 22, 2016, the Checkers played the Chicago Wolves in an empty arena due to icy weather" No fans - No Problem
  6. It's Official - Ox has now been added to the Dawg Staff! Per the Dawg website: Ox - Locker Room Dawg: Ox is in his first year with the Rail Yard Dawgs and his first in professional sports. A four-year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Ox can often be seen roaming the halls and watching practice during the week. He enjoys belly rubs, ear scratches, chewing on frisbees and spending time with the boys in the room. He's Listed on the Website

  8. "Gandara and Mele have gotten their faces beaten up the last couple weeks...they're beginning to look like hockey players." LOVE IT!!!
  9. Here's an interview with Coach Bremner on WFIR today. https://wfirnews.com/local-news/dawgs-head-coach-dan-bremner-settling-in
  10. Apparently, a team nicknamed the Dawgs needs a dog watching over things! That's the equipment manager's dog - I understand he gets excited when Gavin asked him if he wants to go to the rink!
  11. Good story last night from Channel 10. https://www.wsls.com/sports/railyard-dawgs-transitioning-well-under-new-head-coach
  12. Whiners

    Agree with that. I thought the volume level was close to unbearable on the team bench side of the ice. But otherwise, it was a fun fan experience. And I still love the tank ((Zamboni). That may be the best Zamboni ever.
  13. I feel your pain. I think we're 0-4.
