  1. FHL's Future Unclear?

    Well, you obviously seem to be an expert on Winston. And the fact I have spoke to Matt Brown and Scott Johnson myself personally, yes I can say that I do know what I am talking about. And actually, being from Greensboro, for approximately 36 of my 38 years on this earth, makes me pretty knowledgeable about my city. Again, it's not what I think. It's what I know from firsthand experience. You say the Augusta move ALMOST happened? Keyword is almost. The GCC will NOT give up any concession revenue, and if they were to, it would be a pitiful percentage. Unless Matt and Scott have some miraculous change of heart on rental fees, a team owner would NOT be able to sustain a profitable franchise. If they stuck to the rental terms in the guidelines, the base fee is $5,000 per night or 12% of gross receipts, whichever is greater. This does not include the hundreds of people they have to staff for the events which in turn will boost that number per night even higher. We're talking at least $20,000 per night the team has to pay in fees to the Coliseum. So to explain why an Augusta move NEVER happened, Bob Kerzner would have not been able to afford it. His franchise has never shown, until 2017-18, any attendance greatness considering the Cyclones (both in Winston and Florence) had pitiful numbers, the Hawks had pitiful numbers, and even in Macon, the first 2 years were down at the bottom of the league. So, basically, before you assume someone is just spouting off with thoughts, please step back and understand that the person may have insider knowledge of some things. I do not mean any of this with any intention of disrespect.
  2. FHL's Future Unclear?

    This has nothing to do with any "disdain" for the FHL. I could care less about that league. When someone mentions Greensboro, I respond. Greensboro will NEVER happen, I should know because I am from Greensboro. Matt Brown and Scott Johnson DO NOT want hockey back. And if hockey were to return, probably nothing less than ECHL. That is a 21,000+ seat arena for hockey. Even draping off the upper sections, the lower bowl would probably be bigger than any SPHL arena. So, again, it is not for any so-called hatred, or dislike, or whatever other synonym you choose to describe my post, it is merely Greensboro won't ever happen.
  3. Are you going through withdrawals yet?
  4. This came across my phone a couple of times and had me like wth? We have a serial licker in the league!
  5. FHL's Future Unclear?

    They don't play in prime venues that have conflicting dates though!
  6. FHL's Future Unclear?

    Greensboro in the FHL? That''s a bigger joke than Greensboro ever hosting hockey of any type ever again. The Coliseum is way too big for the FHL, not to mention no dates due to Spartan basketball and other events. The Fieldhouse is NOT equipped for hockey and is solely used for the Swarm. The only other viable place that fits the FHL is the Ice House.
  7. Interesting; no?

    Winnipeg is too far north for a Southwest alignment. My B alignment is based on distances and Nashville is closer than Washington.
  8. Interesting; no?

    Got you to look! Anyways, I wanted to make this thread because sometimes curiosity gets the best of me (and yes JMC and PO, I do know that curiosity did kill the poor cat), and I tend to want to over analyze things, so I am seeking what others might think of this, so here it is. I have made a potential realignment if Seattle joins the NHL for the upcoming 2018-19 season, and then another one that is considered to be my perfect alignment based on distances between locations. Probable Divisional Realignment (Realignment A) EASTERN CONFERENCE ATLANTIC DIVISION Boston Bruins Buffalo Sabres Montréal Canadiens Ottawa Senators METROPOLITAN DIVISION New Jersey Devils New York Islanders New York Rangers Philadelphia Flyers NORTHEAST DIVISION Columbus Blue Jackets Detroit Red Wings Pittsburgh Penguins Toronto Maple Leafs SOUTHEAST DIVISION Carolina Hurricanes Florida Panthers Tampa Bay Lightning Washington Capitals WESTERN CONFERENCE CENTRAL DIVISION Chicago Blackhawks Minnesota Wild Nashville Predators Winnipeg Jets NORTHWEST DIVISION Calgary Flames Edmonton Oilers Seattle Vancouver Canucks PACIFIC DIVISION Anaheim Ducks Los Angeles Kings San Jose Sharks Vegas Golden Knights SOUTHWEST DIVISION Arizona Coyotes Colorado Avalanche Dallas Stars St. Louis Blues My perfect divisional realignment (Realignment B) EASTERN CONFERENCE ATLANTIC DIVISION Buffalo Sabres Montréal Canadiens Ottawa Senators Toronto Maple Leafs METROPOLITAN DIVISION Boston Bruins New Jersey Devils New York Islanders New York Rangers NORTHEAST DIVISION Columbus Blue Jackets Philadelphia Flyers Pittsburgh Penguins Washington Capitals SOUTHEAST DIVISION Carolina Hurricanes Florida Panthers Nashville Predators Tampa Bay Lightning WESTERN CONFERENCE CENTRAL DIVISION Chicago Blackhawks Detroit Red Wings Minnesota Wild Winnipeg Jets NORTHWEST DIVISION Calgary Flames Edmonton Oilers Seattle Vancouver Canucks PACIFIC DIVISION Anaheim Ducks Los Angeles Kings San Jose Sharks Vegas Golden Knights SOUTHWEST DIVISION Arizona Coyotes Colorado Avalanche Dallas Stars St. Louis Blues Give me your thoughts?
  9. FHL's Future Unclear?

    That would be normal for the F(ake)HL
  10. FHL's Future Unclear?

    What do you mean South Charleston too small?
  11. Expansion

    The last Winston team were the Cyclones (Twin City Cyclones), aka the Macon Mayhem. Bob Kerzner's explanation was due to lack of attendance. Their existence in Winston were the 2007-08 and 2008-09 seasons. Twin City 30,698 26 1,180 Twin City 33,909 30 1,130 They averaged a mere 1,154 per game in the 2 seasons they were there.
  12. Expansion

    I have to keep saying this. Greensboro WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER, see hockey again. Please trust me on this. I was born at Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital in the year 1980. Cone Hospital is the biggest hospital in Greensboro. I lived in Greensboro for the vast majority of my life, up until January 2016, when I moved to the foothills of NC. I am Greensboro born and bred. I loved my Monarchs. But as long as Nancy is mayor, Matt Brown and Scott Johnson are directors of the Coliseum, we WILL NEVER SEE hockey again. Besides, the Coliseum would put any SPHL arena to shame! 21,000+ seats. Even the lower half of the arena is nearly 10,000 seats. Evansville is good. The team is owned by the arena management. They are good.
  13. Playoffs

    Did I say a guarantee?
  14. He did say if there was no ice.
  15. Where do you hear this? Because I specifically heard Carver Arena.
