  1. " I'm too drunk to taste this chicken " Colonel Sanders
  2. I will say the media and write ups are pretty vague and bare however Brian ( who writes those I believe ) may be handcuffed by management or ownership. If you go back to August I believe McGinn gave an interview where he said they didn't release things on purpose sometimes to keep everyone guessing. Like Cody Dion for example had been signed in May and I don't think they announced that until August.
  3. If you listen to Greg Roberts Live on Wednesday, starting at 6pm of WFIR you get a full 30-45 minutes of Dawg stuff with Mele, Murray and Dion. They do touch on call ups, trades and cuts. You can go back to Greg's past shows to get caught up although with the team being on the road for the last month there hasn't been anyone in studio to discuss.
  4. Why is that an overreaction? Ice Bears have won 7 of their last 10, including 4 games against Peoria. Fayetteville, while struggling lately has owned Roanoke this season. Then Pensacola comes to town winning 8 of their last 10 and they're getting hot at the right time. Now let's get to Roanoke who has been up and down all year, even at their best they've struggled to put together a full game. This team does not like to play physical and I don't understand because this was supposed to be Bremner's wheel house but I guess that was a bad assumption on my part. Again, if you want a team for comparison I would suggest using Birmingham. They're in year 2 and are in great shape for the playoffs while Roanoke is in year 3 with Peoria already preparing for the 2nd round.
  5. I just have the feeling they're done for the year and we will see little effort moving forward.
  6. That's setting a really low bar, take a look at Birmingham for comparison.
  7. I don't think being home is going to help, if I were betting on it I would say Roanoke goes pointless in its final 4 at home. Roanoke had it relatively easy on the road with minimal sleeping on the bus. I just think this team is done playing, I think there are a few older guys starting to turn their attention to life after hockey. We will see but it doesn't look promising....
  8. Guess this thread stayed silent because there's not a lot to say about this piss poor road trip. 5-0, this team seems like it's in cruise mode. Going through the motions, waiting for April to come around to jet town. Last year's 2nd half team would beat this team 9 out of 10 times simply because this team is afraid to get it's hands dirty and play physical. This is not the type of team that will keep hockey in Roanoke, there is no blue collar mentality on this team. Coffee, Wine, Cheese and the Bachelor I'm glad they have fun off the ice because on the ice the only fun had is by opposing teams.
  9. https://www.roanoke.com/sports/roanoke_rail_yard_dawgs/rail-yard-dawgs-forward-schwartz-suspended-following-racially-inappropriate-action/article_88fffdc2-61da-5b37-b409-789f0b8adb83.html I think the wording on this should be different, it should be alleged because no one know his true intentions except him. Not defending ANYTHING Schwartz did but I don't want to see the league get a black eye for one incident. Also according to this article Roanoke has freed up a spot by suspending him
  10. Based on the league's press release and the fact that Graves is of color I'm going to assume it was race related. Again speculation on my part, just connecting the dots. Maybe someone can clarify
  11. I would have preferred Cesarz
  12. Not sure how i feel about this
  13. Got ya, I don't really count last years win in Peoria it was a last game of the year nobody gives a crap because we're both in the playoffs so have one on us kinda night.
  14. Serious question, because I'm too lazy to do the research but in 3 years Roanoke has beaten Peoria how many times? I'm thinking 4?
  15. 3 years into this thing and we're no closer to competing with Peoria. Something will break one of these years I suppose.
  16. I guess because they still earned a point. Off topic but with the recent expansion rumors taking the sphl to the likes of Iowa, is anyone else concerned about the longevity of some teams? I mean the travel and cost were some of the main reasons for the demise of the Express
  17. Greg Robert's said yesterday he had some broken bones in his hand, said he was wearing a brace. He did not travel with the team to Peoria, he will be on with Greg Wednesday so maybe more info on his return then.
  18. I don't know the owner so I won't comment, I know about the stuff with the wild life center however I think the truth lies in the middle there. I do love me some bojangles though
  19. What about those who are lactose intolerant? Pizza isn't kind to them, is it? I'm neither vegan nor lactose intolerant but the point is you're never going to please anyone with these promotions, especially in this I'm offended by everything climate. Big deal you didn't get a free chicken biscuit, I get it they over promised and under delivered but is it really the end of the world? Are you going to stop buying tickets because of it? I've been a season ticket holder since the beginning and I honestly can't remember one time that I've tried to cash in on Benny's or Bojangles. I guess it's just more important to some folks, I wouldn't let it detour me from supporting something I enjoyed watching.
  20. Unless they're planning on making the Dawgs play at the lot? Which would be a nice way for the Dawgs to host fan appreciation night lol.
