  1. Hopefully we will have a lot of princesses, mermaids, etc. joining Chilly Bear on the fun run!
  2. Very glad for him. Hope this is a good move for him and his family.
  3. Guess some folks deem themselves insiders and want to put a wrench in the press conference on Thursday.
  4. Wow! I never noticed that at all, but I'm not one that wants, or desires, to hang with those deemed important by others. It's a sad state if that is actually the case. Hope Murray gets back to being the GM everyone needs!
  5. I've been thinking (which often gets me in trouble) about the Mike Murray issue. I'm not very smart about politics and big city issues like a lot of you appear to be. However, it appears to me that Murray (and I'm not defending his arrest) was out and about trying to network with a lot of big city locals to help make KIB/hockey a priority in the city's future. He was in the leadership group which enabled him to network with a lot of possible big spenders that might throw some money toward Knoxville hockey. (If nothing else, they could possibly buy season tickets for their corporation or for themselves.) I'm not sure why that was perceived as being all about Murray's ego, or bad for the team. Seemed like some good business sense to me. ( I am not talking about the evening of his arrest. I do not know or care his purpose that evening.) As a STH, there have been times I wasn't sure if I wanted to retain my tickets for another year, or if I could actually afford them that year. However, things have always worked out. I personally believe we need to support KIB hockey more than ever. Please note that I didn't say support Mike Murray. On this I will say, he is an adult and he will be tried as an independent adult, and not as GM of the Icebears. I will continue to support him as GM. Let's keep HOCKEY in Knoxville. As fans, we do not want to be the catalyst that runs hockey off from our town.
  6. I personally wouldn't expect players and management to have the same rules. Perhaps they should. However, I wouldn't expect it.
  7. I find this situation sad, as I did with the Billet DUI as well. We are human and make mistakes daily. (Yes, I am aware this is one that might kill someone.) And no, I don't think the information should have been suppressed. Murray has worked very hard to keep hockey in Knoxville. For that I applaud him and will continue to do so. Some would turn the hockey organization over to individuals or groups with no business or coaching experience. I think Knoxville needs to be smarter than taking an emotional stand at this point. Any decisions should be decided on business and financial smarts. We all know this is going to hurt Murray financially, personally, etc. This will be tried in a court, and if others have their way, on hockey boards. I feel sad that individuals are enjoying this situation. It is your right to feel this way, I just want to see hockey continue in Knoxville.
  8. Another reason I don't subscribe to the KNS.
  9. Was great to see our guys step up and play like they are capable of playing despite horrible officiating!

  11. Great game! Nice to leave Le Dump in the sunshine!
  12. I think they are hilarious! Wouldn't buy one, do not want one, but they are a hoot! Hope the team isn't embarrassed to wear them!
  13. That moment when you want to re-watch the Sicard-Segal fight you recorded on your phone only to realize you never pushed the record button. Grrrrr...
