  1. Maybe Mazz had trouble finding (a spot for) Nemo: BTW, "no copyright infringement is intended"
  2. Indeed, they have gone a Longo way away for a Longo time.
  3. You of all people should know the rules of the forums- posters can't defile others on these boards without risk of censure and/or outright banishment.
  4. I defy you to ask any SPHL or ECHL player/coach/staff if they are professional or semi-professional. But then again, arguing with you is like
  5. Here are 2 problems with the above: The SPHL is the Southern Professional Hockey League, not the Southern Semi-Professional League. The SPHL players are professional, not semi-professioinal. A semi-professional athlete is one for whom sport is not a full-time occupation. They are not amateur because they receive regular payment from their team (company), but at a much lower rate than a full-time professional athlete. As a result, players may have (or seek) a second full-time job. A semipro player/team could also be one that represents a place of employment that only the employees are allowed to play on. In this case, it is considered semipro because their employer pays them, but for their regular job, not for playing on the company's team. The boys don't have, and don't seek, a second full-time job during the season.
  6. At the SPHL level, I can guarantee you that no owner in this league will "invest" in an ice plant on his/her own. An ice plant will be on the city/county/arena dime.
  7. Ice plants cost $$$ to install and maintain- why do you have doubts? There are a multitude of arenas in the US that don't have ice plants.
  8. Thanks, @GusMac. Maybe this info will quiet some discussion about expansion back into Augusta.This will also hopefully quell the repartee between @Harlan and @p3tra, and protect Harlan's arse from the wrath of the mods.
  9. You can't play home games either, if you don't have ice.
  10. At least now Peoria doesn't have to pay for a lot of letters to stitch on the backs of home, away, and 3rd jerseys.
  11. True that! He should be tolerant of a half-visor, at least.
  12. Just goin' with what @hockeydoc posted. I suppose he has pretty close contact with the Havoc coaches and staff, and I would hope he wouldn't post anything about a league rule or policy that the Havoc didn't know about. In addition, as @MacGuy wrote: Posted Friday at 10:39 AM Drop a note to the league and see if they give you an answer.
