  1. 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.
  2. Had I been referring to you as a woman I would have used Frances.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Song freaked me out back then and still does today
  8. I'm sure it didn't help him knowing that Barone is back, looking over your shoulder and seeing the goalie of the year.
  9. I would think so, wonder if they travel with 3 tonight or only take 2?
  10. What an awesome night!!!!! Even down 4-0 you felt like Roanoke was still going to win. I feel bad Cafferey had an off night but Creel stepped up in a huge way. I think the little Mele scrap was the turning point.

  12. Sadly, you might be right. Roanoke has made it clear in the past they have no desire to work with or have a pro team of any kind with the exception of that terrible Roanoke Dazzle product. I hope the contract the ownership just signed doesn't have to be redesigned since the city will take over in January. But you can bet when it comes time to renew the city will make unreasonable demands that drive up ticket prices and run this team right out of town. My question to the city is if you had to outsource things before because you couldn't get it right what makes you think you're going to get it right this time.
  13. Yeah they do, how does this work because we owe Knoxville as well
  14. Pathetic, after Roanoke got up 2 it was like they were just going through the motions. I also would like to rescind my comment from the off season about being the toughest team in the league. Last year's team 2nd half was leaps and bounds ahead of this team in terms of physicality.
  15. Got ya, the way I read it was he should have left QC to come back here for the playoff run. My apologies
  16. I'm sure the extra 200 a week he was making three played a significant role
  17. That would be a great pick up if he clears
  18. We still seem to be holding our own tonight, Dion has had a nice game.
  19. Last night during the 2nd intermission on the Dawgs broadcast they had Bob McGinn on and he was talking about attending the SPHL board meetings next month. One of the topics that he mentioned to be discussed was expansion and a few markets were interested in becoming part of the SPHL. Anyone have any insight or guesses as to who may be applying for membership?
  20. I was really impressed with Macon tonight, they remind me of Peorias team from last year, everything just clicks for those guys. I thought the boys played hard tonight, the shots just weren't getting through.

  22. I thought this team was going to be far more aggressive than last year, especially on the defensive side. So far I'm pretty underwhelmed.
  23. http://pointstreaksites.com/view/roanokerailyarddawgs/news-1147/news_511019 Guess we shouldn't expect Barone back anytime soon, huh?
