  1. I won't mention my source but the players had a lot of input to his dismissal. It will happen in Pcola also unless he has changed his coaching style. Do you remember Matt Robertson of the antz? He refused to return after Bes was hired and played in the FHL. How many of our players from last season fled to Europe? If they knew Bes was leaving, they would have stayed. By the time they found out, they were already under contract.
  2. There's more to the story with him leaving. Why do you think some of our best players fled to Europe to play verses staying in Fayetteville?
  3. Trade!

    Well, here in Fayetteville anything will work for us. We can't get any worse. If this coach can pull this team together and win some games, he might be back next season.
  4. There are several different classifications of fans. But at the end, they're all fans. https://www.sportsblog.com/allfunkedup/classification_terms_for_sports_fans/
  5. And also has the smallest rink in SPHL and have been begging the city for an upgrade. They promised to name a street after Kevin Swider and that has not been done.
  6. Some of us has been calling for Phil to go. Wonder if ownership had Input from of the Senior players? Let's see what the new coach can do. Who knows? Can't do any worse than Phil. Hopefully we'll get back some of our better skaters from the E and make a move up the standings.
  7. Bes took us to the playoffs last season. That was a positive note.
  8. PC is a fan of the Marksmen. People may or may not like what he has to say but he has the same right as Fred when it comes to $2.00 beers or PO jumping on forum members for improper forum grammar. It's all about voicing your own opinions. Why have a forum if you can't?
  9. Typical of a coach from the FHL beer league.
  10. These type of penalties shows that the players are frustrated. They are dedicated and want to win. Nobody plays to lose. Coach is the problem. The end of season meetings with the players will tell it all. I also hope next season will be much better. I believe in this ownership to overcome the issues we had this season.
  11. I think this team fits more in FHL than the SPHL. The Marksmen 1st season will go down as the worst team in Fayetteville history. I just open hope we make significant changes for next season starting with the coach. I know he took over a team that was in bad shape but, haven't seen any improvement.
  12. The new ownership has done great for the entertainment, being able to watch replays and even had them on TV. The only thing left is to fix the team. I would start with a new coach next season that has coaching experience in our league or above and allow him to build his team for next season. I believe it will be much better next season. The ownership are diehard hockey fans and knows they need to work on a better team.
  13. This Forum reminds me of the LA icegators with all the internal bickering going on. Can we all just get along and allow all comments no matter if it's positive or negative? That's what this forum is for. Fans voicing thier opinions.
  14. We hope he stays in the E. He deserves the opportunity.
  15. He had control of the puck before lifting it over the goalie. Should have counted. But then again, after losing the Ref due to injury the other two had no clue on what to call. SPHL officials stated it was a goal.
  16. Here's one to think about, who do we protect for next season lol? Can we even get to 13? Sounds like another rebuilding season since this one has failed. I sure hope there are some big improvements in the off season starting with the coach. I might sound negative but it's a fact. The only way we can salvage this season is to get all the call ups back on the team and maybe add Taylor Thompson who doesn't want to come back.
  17. That's not how the puck ended up in the net. You are correct with the high stick but the puck hit the goalie pads and bounced out when the Marksmen took the rebound and lifted it over the goalie. In my opinion once the high stick puck hits the goalie and he blocks it, it's a live puck on the rebound. If the puck goes in on the high stick, it's a no goal.
  18. This game was very difficult to watch. The team is not clicking, no defense and PP was weak. The high stick goal should have stood as a goal because the puck hit the goalie before being lifted over his shoulder. But, it would not have changed the outcome of the game. This coach needs to go back to the FHL. He's not getting it done. On a good note, I did enjoy battle ball!
  19. I'm going to hope that the Marksmen will make a phone call to Mark DeSantis this off season offering him the bench boss job.
  20. They count all STH, Ft Bragg MWR, sponsors and groups tickets sales if they attend that game or not. Most teams do the same.
  21. CHRIS LEVEILLE who played for the fireantz during the Rob Sich days and couple seasons after before being waived by the Antz. Chris dropped down to the FHL and played in that league for a few years before being picked up by the ECHL Brampton beast and has played for the beast for the last 2 season was just called up to the AHL. Congrats to Chris!
  22. As a big hockey fan standpoint, we would do better in attendance if the team did better on ice. I know this is their 1st season and they hopefully have learned some valuable lessons owning and running a hockey team in the SPHL. They did great in advertising and family friendly entertainment.
  23. Great job Marksmen! Keep it rolling. Maybe they found their MoJo.
