  1. 2017-18 Marksmen Roster

    Spano released by ECHL today. No stats for his two week stint. Brampton to Roanoke is a 10 1/2 drive. Of course, it remains to be seen if he wants to return.
  2. Love the team dog watching practice.
  3. Birmingham Bulls Roster

    A little research on Justin Larson shows that Bulls fans should be excited about his addition. He had signed with them in October but I can't find what happened between camp and now. He has been a point scorer and he has the experience of NHL training camps. For a team struggling on O he might be a big help for them.
  4. Interesting and I agree with the results that PEN and PEO deserve top-tier. What stands out to me is that PEN has I think 10 players on ECHl call-up. Some of these players likely will return in time for the playoffs. Other teams will benefit from ECHL returnees but I don't think any as much as PEN. The best race in the league could be the battle for 8th down the stretch.
  5. Whiners

    I've noticed the same over the years about the volume on the players side of the ice. I sit on the other side of the rink now and the volume is just about right.
  6. LOL. Taking the statement a little too literally. I'm not talking 56-0-0. Maybe I should have worded it "as a fan having a team that gives an all out effort to try to win and has the personnel to compete in the league" is what I look for as a fan. As for the last part of your statement we'll know the answer to that after 56 games.
  7. Whiners

    AMEN, Brother! Well said. To add to that I'd say the fans who are willing to speak out and say losing or more accurately a lack luster effort is not acceptable ARE the true fans. The so-called whining that has been expressed on this site is the only forum we have to say we want a team that puts in a solid effort every night not just once in awhile. If you are the RAH-RAH everything is ok despite our team's horrible play type of person then good for you. But don't try to put me in that same boat. And I thought personal attacks on this site were against the rules, correct?
  8. Thank you for your opinion. I'll whine if I want to. As a fan winning is all that matters. If all you want is a good experience go to Chucky Cheese with the kids.
  9. If you go to the parking lot on the back side of the building you can get almost front row parking and if you have tix you can walk right in with very few people around. If your tickets are behind or next to the Roanoke bench after entering you are just about at the aisle where your seats will be. Oh, and there is a bathroom just to your right as you enter- you'll probably need that after a long ride. I'd try to give you directions on the best way to get around to the back but that would probably just confuse things. If you do park near the front entrance no worries. With tickets the line to get in moves fast and wont be long. It'll be a short walk to the seats and plenty of restrooms nearby. Be prepared for a loudmouth or two especially if we should somehow get the lead. Anyway, safe travels and have fun.
  10. Drobot

    No doubt this will be the last season for Drobot (I don"t think they will release him at this point) and probably the last year for Hauswirth and McNeil, too. Our protected players will be 8 former FHL players.
  11. First half of the season is gone basically. There is nothing for a Fayetteville fan to root for except next year. I have 8 flex tickets to use up-ugh- and the wife has told me no flipping way will she go to another game this year. (She grew up in the Northeast playing and watching hockey as a kid). She says what the Marksmen play isn't real hockey. LOL. And by the way-- the fact that Kent Patterson wouldn't report to the team after his ECHL time speaks volumes to the sad state of affairs going on with Fayetteville. In my opinion the guys that are still there don't want to play for Esposito, either.
  12. Where is Patterson?

    Or they could trade his rights back to PEN to cover the future considerations they are owed and get room and board on their next trip to PEN. Fireantz fans know what I mean.
  13. Where is Patterson?

    Transactions for the 12th have been posted and no mention of Patterson coming back. His issue is more than a waiver wire hold up at this point. Any of you insiders heard what the deal is with him? Obviously he and DiSalvo would make a decent pair of goalies.
  14. Ice Flyers Goalie!

    Been reading the "under the table" posts with some interest. 3 to 4 years ago I worked with a guy who "sponsored" 3 SPHL players. I'm not sure if he had them living in his house or if he paid for their apartment. I do know those players were not lacking for anything while they played for the team. I can't say if they were given extra cash because I didn't think to ask at the time. I came away from my association with this guy with the feeling that all players were pretty well taken care of. I just assumed this was the norm. What he was talking about could have been just typical booster club stuff.
  15. 2017-18 Marksmen Roster

    Does anyone know why Jake Wood has missed the last 11 or 12 games? Is he injured? The little guy played hard and scored a point every 3 games while he was playing. Not much I know but better than most on the roster. If he is injured why did they not put him on IR?
