  1. FHL's Future Unclear?

    It means "not being large enough ... for Barry Soskin to park his custom motorhome inside."
  2. The Quad-City Times made a lame attempt to address the numerical conundrum in this 2016 fluff piece. It at least offers an historical perspective.
  3. FHL Expansion 2018-2019 & beyond??

    Wouldn't that make it the "Far-away Hockey League"?
  4. Not in the Quad Cities, which needed to combine the population of five separate cities plus several smaller communities just to constitute a medium-sized metropolitan statistical area. So if anybody is "mediums," it's them.
  5. I hear Sarah Palin could see Russia from center ice of the Aces' former arena.
  6. Name the team

    Old news, Mac. I signed it weeks ago to show support for hockey fan friends up in QDC. But I don't expect this grass roots effort to change the ECHL's long-standing practice of brand hoarding. They have lawyers like any other big business.
  7. SPHL expansion 2018-19

    It wasn't so much the city wanting a new tenant for TaxSlayer Center as it was the arena's exec director Scott Mullen. It's on him to make or lose money and keep the business viable.
  8. Name the team

    Would that be the "Deere Johns"?
  9. Name the team

    This guy is the virtuoso of "Wheel!"
  10. And two things regarding your reply. First, I was simply answering MM's question re. Canadian cultural norms. Second, I never said there wasn't a thread; I simply noted that it was a tenuous one. Much like the generations-old connection in the U.S. that is often used to marginalize rather than include. There's a lot of that going around, eh?
  11. One rival arrives, and another one leaves ...
  12. SPHL expansion 2018-19

    A bittersweet week in the SPHL, with expansion offset by contraction within a 24-hour period. It's a tough business.
  13. Good luck in your next chapter, TJ.
