  1. Message From The Prez

    I thought the myth was 1 human year = 7 dog years. Thus, "yappy hour" should have been only 8.5714..... human minutes.
  2. I may be full of turkey, but I'm not full of something else like a lot of folks are (yerself excluded, of course). P.O.
  3. I bet Mr Dave didn't need a translator when he was "talkin' turkey"
  4. Jerseys

    Ya gotta know English and math in order to read names and numbers.
  5. Message From The Prez

    Wow- "happy hour" actually an hour long- what a concept! ("Yappy Hour has been extended and now runs from 6-7 PM, featuring $2 beers and improved concession products.") Fred might be there for every game now.
  6. Well THAT was fun

    That could get him in trouble in certain venues Quite interesting that you posted this in "Well THAT was fun" thread
  7. GDT: PEO @ BIR-11/18/17 (3-4 SOL)

    The penalty shot was not shown on the pointstreak score sheet. Guess we have to give the newbies time to adjust. They don't even list the 3 stars of the game. And they got it wrong, giving Peoria 4 and Birmingham 3 in the "totals" column- Shootout Peoria SCORE SHOOTER no Christian Horn yes Jacob Barber yes Cody Dion no Joseph Widmar no Connor Gorman yes Jacob Barber no Jacob Barber no Cody Dion no Christian Horn TOTALS: 4 Birmingham SCORE SHOOTER no Josh Harris yes Keegan Bruce yes Andy Bathgate no Connor Reilly no Brandon Millin yes Josh Harris no Keegan Bruce no Josh Harris yes Keegan Bruce TOTALS: 3
  8. With those first 2 lines, I thought you'd be giving a run-down of the doggie contestants- then you let me down by listing several human players .
  9. Bulls Sign 2 Players

    You're scooping Marksmen3519! Harris is another one who's now played with half the SPHL teams, and looks like he's already played 2 games with the Bulls: 2012-13 Las Vegas Wranglers ECHL 8 1 0 1 2 2 -- -- -- -- -- 2013-14 Huntsville Havoc SPHL 50 20 25 45 51 14 5 1 4 5 2 2013-14 Arizona Sundogs CHL 6 0 1 1 0 -3 -- -- -- -- -- 2014-15 Peoria Rivermen SPHL 56 23 25 48 46 5 3 0 1 1 2 2015-16 Peoria Rivermen SPHL 8 1 2 3 8 -1 5 0 0 0 2 2016-17 Peoria Rivermen SPHL 7 0 3 3 4 0 -- -- -- -- -- 2016-17 Evansville Thunderbolts SPHL 24 8 6 14 19 -23 -- -- -- -- -- 2016-17 Pensacola Ice Flyers SPHL 29 10 12 22 19 4 4 0 0 0 2 2017-18 Birmingham Bulls SPHL 2 0 0 0 0 1
  10. I would hate that more for the kids' sake.
  11. Gotta hope there IS a Fayetteville goal (see my post above re: offense).
  12. "The best defense is a good offense" is an adage that has been applied to many fields of endeavor, including games and military combat. It is also known as the strategic offensive principle of war. Generally, the idea is that proactivity (a strong offensive action) instead of a passive attitude will preoccupy the opposition and ultimately hinder its ability to mount an opposing counterattack, leading to a strategic advantage. Military[edit] George Washington wrote in 1799: "…make them believe, that offensive operations, often times, is the surest, if not the only (in some cases) means of defence".[1] Mao Zedong opined that "the only real defense is active defense", meaning defense for the purpose of counter-attacking and taking the offensive.[2] Often success rests on destroying the enemy's ability to attack. This principle is paralleled in the writings of Machiavelli and Sun Tzu.[3]
  13. And this gets done before Knoxville honors Swider- don't know whether to call this sad or sweet.
  14. Coach

    There are LOTS of easy pickin's on these boards- not only puckcounter.
  15. Coach

    You're stealin' my lines!
  16. Not "upside down"- it's the same flag (well, not the SAME flag, another U.S. flag), just from a different perspective (i.e. from the other side of the ice).
  17. Ice Flyers Blast Marksmen

    This past Thursday (11/9/17) Huntsville gave up 3 goals on 10 shots in the 1st period and 2 more on 11 shots in the 2nd, thus 5 goals on 21 shots through 2 periods. That tells you that Pensacola has a pretty well-oiled machine at this stage of the season.
  18. Jeff Bes Suspended Five Games

    I can't explain why the league didn't enforce the rule prior to this season. Nevertheless, as I've posted above, and even the great bearded one (as seen in the JMC-STL post directly above this one) have written, the rule has been enforced in Bes' case. "It is what it is." P.S. I do think it's quite ironic that the violation was detected while his team was in Peoria.
  19. He's still around- he can continue to coach practices and travel with the team, he can even be in the arena but he just can't be on the bench during the games.
  20. Jeff Bes Suspended Five Games

    Re: last question- nope. As you have acknowledged my initial statement, the rule was not enforced last season (though it should have been, but wasn't). Teams and coaches knew about the rule before this season started. A letter was sent out by the league office in early October specifically denoting infractions regarding salary cap, having an unsigned player practice or travel with a team, and other matters. Thus, they can't claim "ignorance of the law" (some might, however, be charged with just plain ignorance). Teams need to be anti-Nike- "just don't do it"- if you get caught you suffer the consequences.
  21. Slashing penalties

    I think there's an overemphasis on the slashing calls, while the ref(s) is(are) missing or not calling the obvious holding, interference, and cross-checking infractions.
  22. Jeff Bes Suspended Five Games

    That was last season, when the rule was not strictly enforced. This year is different. Every team knew about it before this season started.
  23. Jeff Bes Suspended Five Games

    Then they should be followed. Case closed. 5 game suspension per league rule.
  24. Jeff Bes Suspended Five Games

    "simple mistake"- highly doubtful.
