  1. I was shocked to see the Antz brand go ... but these guys have a huge vision and are working on a 5 yr deal with the Crown that will have a 2nd 5 yr option ... they are not playing around! the Carolina Red Fox is indigenous to the area and the Marksmen name gives homage to Fayetteville's close military ties ... ties that I for one think were NEVER tapped into like they should have been! many of us remember the days of the Antz leading the attendance in the S ... and I see us getting back to that!! We have a FULL staff of people in the office ... the monthly payment plan for season tickets is awesome ... look what they did in a short time for the two games they were in charge of ... imagine what they will do with an entire off season to promote! I for one am excited .... Go Marksmen!!! i do however have 8 Antz jerseys that I have over $2k in .... for a sale lol
  2. These guys are hiring a 10-12 person staff ... they are not playing around, they want this to grow and prosper!!! They worked for 5 weeks promoting last night and tonight and the difference in the crowd was obvious and all due to them!! last night they brought in the Charlotte Checkers ice team to give some insight and to show what to expect in the future!!! They did say that tonight that crew won't be there, but for next season the experience will be worth the price of admission!! i have talked with the new Pres/GM several times via private message and he is very receptive to all the ideas fans have and wants to hear our opinions!! very excited going forward!!
  3. It was great to see and talk with Rob Sich and his family this weekend ... the Antz retired his number this weekend like they did with Collins last month and Fournier long ago ... Rob was the guy you either loved or hated or loved to hate ... personally I loved the guy and his game! He was labeled as a one sided player and a big fish in a little pond ... but he could light the dang lamp and he owns a BUNCH of SPHL and FireAntz records! He had a way of getting under the other guys skin and it played to his advantage a lot of the time! He was a fan favorite and certainly remembered for his contributions to the Antz ... who, by the way, when he was around, were NEVER last in the league in attendance!!
  4. I have spooken with the new guy ... one of them anyway ... there is going to be a press conference or announcement ... on or around April 7th this guy has some big visions and in his words "is going to put butts in those seats and a better energy in the Crown"
  5. MRK came out playing rough and tough hockey and they man handled the Antz in the 2nd period!! 4-2 after 2
  6. Antz won last night 4-1 ... lets see what tonight holds!!
  7. I was told Manno is day to day ... Not serious but don't want it further agrivated ... as for the team ... i saw tonight a speedy Antz team ... Faster than years past! they lacked some passing game, but that's the new and they are working on that ... Bonar looked good! thompson was good ... Drobot went right to business on what should have been a boarding call but that little shrimp ref tonight was horrible! good home opener be the crowd was disappointing! piehole is right ... Not enough excuses for why it can't get packed like it used to! and why no golf carts on the ice? New rules or something? And no more Heat dance team? nowhere near the signage I am used to seeing ... ??????
  8. I am just ready to see the boys lace em up!
  9. Ready to see the team in action tonight!! Opening weekend ... coming in 2-0 off the road ... lets do this!!
  10. 2-0 after 2 ... We gotta come out swinging if we wanna win this one
  11. 2-0 Peoria after 1 ... Not t looking good ... Anybody with eyes This matchup? I was not impressed We'd night with our terrible power play unit ... We looked like T Stewart was coaching again! That won't beat Rank!
  12. Have to chime to in here ... I drive 88 miles one way to watch this team play ... I have had season tickets for the last 7 years and even with my schedule like it is now, they do a flex plan with me and I go through the calendar and pick out the games I can come to for the entire season .... The playoff schedule didn't work out for me to be there and I HATE THAT ... I will be there Wednesday night however and hopefully see them in the finals as well! Over the past seven years I have followed this team to Columbus, Winston Salem, Richmond, and Knoxville I think there are some huge problems that have affected attendance ... But having a small office staff hurts ... I love Richard and Nathan but they can't do this with 3 or 4 people! It absolutely amazes me that in a town with a huge military installation, they can't draw more fans in!! We used to compete for the attendance title yearly, now ... We are a joke! I crop out the empty seats when I take pictures just so people don't bad mouth it! Ask Piehole ... He preaches this same thing and has for years now! The revolving door of players and coaches has taken over ta toll on the attendance ... Maybe winning a cup can get them back! But I for one, dang sure do my part and don't ever want my loyalty questioned!
  13. Glad to see Parker get the shutout ... He deserved to be playing like i said all along he got us here and deserved to play ... No disr spect to Bonar but he had a shot Friday night and failed ... So ride Parker til he loses, and hopefully, he won't!
  14. Game ... Yes Go Antz! And Parker with the playoff shutout!! I told y'all he deserved to play!
