  1. I agree with IH.The goal every season should be to win it all. As a former player and coach of amateur sports, it takes time to build a team and it's even harder for professional sports. I am also a big fan and can be negative towards all the sport team I support when the team is playing badly. The team is doing better this season than last year. The next goal is to figure out how to put more butts in the seats. The advertisement of the Marksmen is 💯% better than the Fireantz. Heck, coming back from the beach I saw a Huge billboard in Lumberton advertising the Marksmen. The only thing I would add if possible is to show clips of the game on our local TV station. The upgrades to the crown is awesome. What about playing a game or two in the Hurricans PNC arena? That would be good for advertisement. :thumbsup2:

  2. We do need a player who can throw when needed and play the game. I liked Drobot but he was one dimensional. We need someone like Taylor Thompson. You put butts in the seat with lots of action. Fans who know hockey is ok with what we have but most fans don't know hockey. Just like NASCAR fans, some likes the race and others like the crashes.

    Didn't see Cam Bakker on South Carolina's Roster for their Sunday game, but I haven't seen him waived either in the transactions.

    He could have been placed on the reserve list.

    The team he's a fan of had zero to do with my reaction. It was a personal attack and it was inappropriate for any public forum.

    Ironically, he was one of the most vocal when anyone said anything that could be viewed as even slightly negative about the Antz.


    Agreed with your post about not having anything to do with your reaction. I felt it was time for someone from our forum to comment. But, read all my post from the antz. I'm a sports Fan all around and when my team is not doing well, I will criticize the problem area no matter what sport it is. And, would post positive on someone's post if I felt it was needed. If you look into the Marksmen forum, there have been posts that were slightly negative but were correct and was responded by border line attacks.I feel we can not post unless it is 100% positive. That's not what forums are about. I have never and will not attack or criticize anyone for posting. I even enjoy reading posts from Fred and PO. :thumbsup2:

    It was deleted because of the language you used, as you have in the past. That part of your contributions to the Forum won't be missed.

    This is one of the reasons we see far less Fayetteville members on the our forum. If our posts are not considered positive, you get blasted for the comments. There are only 3-4 members constantly posting. The Fireantz forum was much better. Who knows, might be a reason why there are far less donations this season.

    "Taylor Thompson was one of our best. Wish we had him back."

    Agreed he was one of the best.  Not only was he one of the better skaters and scorers on the ice he would drop the gloves in a heartbeat.  He didn't take crap from anyone.  Unfortunately for the Marksmen and all of the SPHL his talent level is such that it's likely he will stay at the ECHL level.

    Agree! He's not scoring the numbers as he did in the SPHL and is an average player for the E. Who knows, he may drop back down to get more playing time.

    I think he still IS a player: from www.eliteprospects.com:

    Not thinking we will see true tough guys, but time will tell.

    I think we will but, he will be able to play shifts and help the team to include a inforcer role. Drobot was not player. Taylor Thompson was one of our best. Wish we had him back.

  9. We should see more seasoned player signings after the E's training camp is over. Hoping he's been on the phone contacting those players. We don't need to be pulling from the FHLto fill our roster as previous seasons. I know there might be a handful of players in the FHL that that could compete and could fill spots due to call ups.
