  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. I would have preferred Cesarz
  4. Not sure how i feel about this
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 3 years into this thing and we're no closer to competing with Peoria. Something will break one of these years I suppose.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Roanoke looks like Tarzan but plays like Jane. Well, at least the boys over in Salem wont have to worry about a deep playoff run effecting attendance over there. There is no acceptable excuse for Saturday's performance.
  14. 2 points is better than none I suppose. Next weekend anything less than 4 points is unacceptable in my opinion. Getting ready to turn the page to playoff mode, we will see where this teams head is at.
  15. Never heard anything else on this, has anyone else? The season is supposed to start in March however when you visit their website there is no schedule. There is only a link begging for sponsors and another for season ticket deposits. It would seem this thing has stumbled out of the gate.
  16. Roanoke has let Fayetteville live rent free in their heads all year. I agree there were some flops last night but those get called when Roanoke let's Fayetteville dictate style and pace. I'm still waiting on the team from last year to show up, disappointing so far. I'll say it again, there is no reason Mele should be the most physical player on this team.
  17. Had I been referring to you as a woman I would have used Frances.
  18. Yeah, I really don't care. And what does a movement against sexual assault have to do with anything I said. Quit being so sensitive Francis.
  19. This team is scared of it's own shadow, Mele is the only one who's showed grit on this team. In my opinion, he can be mentioned in the same company as TooToo, Peron and McDonald. Those guys came to the rink every night, rolled their sleeves up and went to work. They didn't take crap of anyone and were loved in Roanoke.
  20. Finesse hockey sucks, what happened to the team we saw late last year that everyone was scared to play. We forecheck like the womens national team and our defensemen are softer than butter.
  21. Caffrey is going through rookie growing pains, hes one step forward and two back. I feel like in his mind hes not firmly on this team and hes constantly looking over his shoulder. A lot of sloppy play tonight from the Dawgs but when they finally decided to get physical good things started happening. I think I'm more concerned that Mele is our most physical player, that's never a good sign. Not sure this team even has an identity but let's call it like it is, this team is a middle of the pack, first round exit in the playoffs.
  22. Song freaked me out back then and still does today
