  1. Stats, game media links & whatever else MacGuy thought would be cool on the SPHL Game Calendar.

  4. It's gonna be another LONG summer. We need to pace ourselves.
  5. IMO, the equine abuse occurs when fans year-after-year insist on debating the merits of 3-vs-5 game Finals. If the competing teams want it, they can have it; if they don't, they won't. No amount of fan protestation will change that under the current League leadership & membership.
  6. The 2016 Finals series was supposed to go to 5 games as well, but we wuz robbed with 0:00.1 ticks left in the 3rd period of Game #3. But seriously, folks, this whole fan argument re. scheduling a 5-game finals has become a case of . The primary conditions in favor of a short series - cost & ice availability - have not changed, so what makes anyone think the League members' position on the length of the Finals series will change? And a 5-game finals throws away all the strategies that the two advancing teams' coaches have established in the preceding 3-game series that got them there. It's still pro hockey - enjoy it while it lasts.
  7. Whaddya mean, Perfesser? Did Dr. Freud get paid for talking dirty?
  8. And the Best of Three schedule. Plenty of time for the fans to limber up ...
  9. They were all out celebrating a sure victory.
  10. To the victors ... Rivermen Complete Sweep with 4-0 Win in Knoxville Friday
  11. Certainly working better than that Fox Sports Knoxville radio link you included in your Game Calendar entry. I didn't know Lebron James was playing for y'all now. Feel free to listen to the Good Guys' radio feed ... PEO Rivermen on Mixlr
  12. Smart move. Get rid of the merch now so nobody in the front office has to stick around on the weekend to box it up before switching off the lights for the summer.
  13. Some Game #2 perspective items from Mr. E's River Readings ...
  14. If 5% of the people in attendance actually pay attention to those interviews, I'd be surprised. Hard enough to keep folks' attention during play.
  15. Oh, THAT Prez. Guess I don't need to move this thread to the Out of Play forum, then.
  16. Photo spread of Game #1 action, courtesy of the PJStar ... Rivermen vs. Ice Bears in SPHL Playoff
