  1. I think coach got message that we need some toughness. Plus, he can score and not one dimensional.
  2. The Marksmen have a very young team. Maybe coach sees some potential that can be coached to improve the play. Pickings are slim for any changes. We have to give the 1st year coach a chance to improve the team. We just need to be in the top 8 for the playoffs. Next season we will be more critical if things doesn't change.
  3. $5 ticket nights are good for bringing in new butts who will hopefully return.
  4. I thought it was cool that 5 finger Death Punch wore Marksmen jerseys Friday night.
  5. 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.
  6. Max Cook signed. Great pick up!
  7. 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.
  8. Friday night games are competing with HS football. Should get better after football season ends.
  9. I'm sure they will fix it.
  10. He could have been placed on the reserve list.
  11. Mac, 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Still more cuts to go in the ECHL before thier season starts. It's always last minute signings in the SPHL.
  14. The SPHL is a development league for not only players but the referees too. It is what it is.
  15. Like Mathew, we'll get lots of rain, flooding and down trees. Get your chainsaw ready. Mine is.
  16. I would assume that only a handful that is signed under a contract with the rest for training camp. I'm hoping there will be more players signed after the ECHL has finalized roster spots.
  17. That's who I was picking also. If so, very good pick up. A big body d-man who can score.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
