  1. The man himself said he was in "talks with other teams". Any non-moron would have to believe Fayetteville would be in the mix. So as you say "they might have passed on him". Your opinion, good for you. Your statement of " Most of the stuff you put out is wrong" is just stupid. Show me where I have ever said anything about being an expert or an insider on the Marksmen or the SPHL. Like 95% of the people who post on this board I post MY opinion, conjecture, spectulation. If only confirmed facts were posted on this forum there wouldn't be much to read. So if you don't like my opinions or speculation so be it but there is no need for you to go against the written rules of the forum and attack them.
  2. “IT’S VERY HUMBLING. FROM A KID PLAYING THIS GAME AND BEING COLORED AND GOING THROUGH SOME OF THE STUFF I WENT THROUGH AS A KID… THE GAME’S COME A LONG WAY, YOU KIND OF SEE A FEW COACHES SPRINKLED AROUND HERE AND THERE, BUT TO ACTUALLY BE THE HEAD COACH OF A TEAM AND BE COLORED, THAT’S A HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT. I’M JUST HAPPY TO BE IN THIS POSITION AND PEOPLE THAT ARE YOUNGER, I HOPE THAT THEY SEE THIS AND KNOW THAT IT CAN BE DONE.” — LEO THOMAS
  3. Don't shake your head too hard you might hurt something. i'll think and post what I want to think and post. If the moderators object they'll do something about it. In my opinion Thomas was or at least should have been on a short list of prospective new coaches for Fayetteville based on his resume. If they passed on him like I said I hope they have a plan B and a good one.
  4. In the presser Leo Thomas states "I was talking to other teams." There's a good chance he had been in talks with Fayetteville. If you snooze you lose, Marksmen. I hope we got a plan B.
  5. Google travel times to Moline, Illinois (times rounded off) Fayetteville, NC 15 hours Pensacola, Fl 14 hrs 30 minutes Macon, Ga 13 hrs 45 minutes Roanoke, Va 12+30 Birmingham, Al 11 Huntsville, Al 10 Knoxville, Tn 9+45 Southaven, MS 9 Evansville, IN 6 Peoria 1+30
  6. It has been confirmed. Leo Thomas is the new Macon coach. Good for him and good for the league.
  7. Unfortunately, if he does a good job for Fayetteville he will probably get offers after year 2 to go onto bigger and better. That's the way of minor league sports.
  8. I noticed he thanked Chuck AND Jeff for giving him this opportunity. He has limited experience in hockey but that shouldn't be an issue. Today will be an interesting day in the SP with the Quad City PC and finding out who the next Macon coach will be (Leo Thomas?)
  9. Yeppers. Antman was probably referring to the COO/President opening that has been advertised but not filled.
  10. Been wondering the same. Almost as long looking for a coach. Plus no word on what happened to Longo. Norris is about as tight lipped as they come except when expressing his political views. They need to hit the ground running after the protected lists are announced but it's looking like they will be playing catch-up if the new people aren't in place soon.
  11. RiverKings Network

    I listened to the 1st episode of the Crown Talk. I found it to be informative and entertaining. I recommend it to other fans of SPHL hockey. Hopefully, one day Fayetteville will have someone who will give the die-hard fans something similar to what the RiverKings are doing.
  12. I'm not anti-McNeil, but he is a role player at best. He is good on penalty kills and he was one of the few players on the team that would actually go to the net on offense. I believe if he comes back to Fayetteville it will be as a free agent. As said before time will tell. I wish him all the luck for his remaining playing time. Just a thought - if he wants to get into coaching maybe FAY can make him a player/coach.
  13. "Executive Director for the Taxslayer, Scott Mullen, says there are 6 to 8 groups interested in owning a team in the QC, as it moves toward the SPHL, but there is no deadline." Headline wasn't misleading but it could've been more specific. "He also told Local 4 News, the ECHL owns the rights to the Mallards name, and he was told the name is not for sale at any price." How about the "Ice Ducks"? Too close to Anaheim? 'While I was at 1st disappointed we had to wait a year before we started playing, looking back it was the right decision.' In retrospect the new Fayetteville ownership group should have taken a year off to try to figure out what they were doing rather than put such a pitiful product on the ice for 56 games.
  14. Jeff Longo

    Right now Norris is a one man band. Hopefully he will have his new President and Head coach/GM in place soon. It will be interesting to see who Norris chooses for the protected list in a couple of weeks. I think the serious recruiting starts after the protected lists are made known.
  15. Interesting; no?

    Either alignment kills my poor Hurricanes.
