  1. Why am I not surprised you obviously never learned to respect your elders.
  2. What's confusing about this? Anything you need help with? A young man got potentially seriously injured but a day later he is able to be in the stands for his team. Glad he seems to be on the mend.
  3. A Win?

    I think Greco, Mahoney and Durocher just might be keepers for next year. Coach sent Durocher and Mahoney both out with about 30 seconds left on the 5 on 3 and they managed to kill that off but like you said Durocher got caught out of position for an easy PP score a few seconds later. He'll learn.
  4. I think

    I guess I should say at this point- Fred I agree with you 100%. No matter the venue Vets should always get the 1st one on the house with a big thank you. It's not that I care about who pays what or when it's just that finances or lack of is what drives decisions sometimes. Thank You for your service to all Veterans.
  5. A Win?

    I really like Thomas Pope. I've been reading his articles for years and I think he does an excellent job. Having said that I saw Fayetteville's 3rd goal a little different than reported. What I saw was our D-man Greco crossed the red line and sent the puck down the right hand boards with the probable intent of getting the puck to the back of the net. The KNX goalie seemed to think the same thing as he left the crease and went as if he was going to prepare to stop the puck behind the net. Same scenario happens several times a game normally when it is time for a line change. Anyway, the puck when just inside the blue line instead of tracking along the boards took a left turn off the boards (the boards at the crown are notorious for unexpected and crazy bounces) and it tracked at a fairly fast pace directly for the goal. It managed to find the net just inside the post. The goalie saw it take a turn immediately, he put on the brakes but had no chance to get back to the crease. Totally not the goalies fault in anyway shape or form IMO.
  6. Transactions

    Don't know but something tells me he'll be in Fayetteville tonight.
  7. LMAO. I am old man. I've done my time. How can saying the job requirements exhaust me turn into me not thinking the job will be filled? SMH. And you being a so-called senior moderator.Jeez.
  8. Call Up Question

    Unless the stars align exactly right on a given night, Fayetteville will not be giving you any help. The talent just isn't there. Having said that we did help you out a lot (or more correctly the schedule maker did). A full 1/3 of ROA's current point total (16 points, 8 wins in 12 games) came against FAY and you have one left to play. Birmingham only got a bite of the FAY apple 5 times, (3 wins, 6 points). Having said that I don't think you guys have anything to worry about. With Barone in goal not only will you move up in the standings, I think in a short playoff series your team has as good a chance as any to win it all.

    Post of the Year. No Decade.
  11. I think

    I read somewhere that concessions proceeds do not go to the Marksmen. If this is so, when they have a promotion such as $2 beer night who foots the bill to the vendor for the difference? It would come from the team's operating budget, correct? Educate me.

    It's actually 9 games left. Having watched all of the their games this calendar year either in person or the road games on SPHL live, being totally honest I do not see anyway FAY can win a game. If Patterson would come back and play in goal the odds go up a little. If a player or two comes back from the ECHL the odds go up a little. Towards the end of the season IF the last 3 games against MAC, EVN and MRK are meaningless to them in the standings FAY might catch them on an off night and have a chance. But a 22 game losing streak and a 23 game winless streak are real possibilities.

  14. de Melo played a good game. He made a handful of above average saves. As for what Drobs did at the end of the game de Melo derserved it. At 8:37 of the 3rd, de Melo cross checked Junior Harris in the neck/head area while play and the refs attention was headed back down ice. Drobot was just telling de Melo he didn't appreciate the cheap shot on his teammate.

    I agree with this statement 100% except you have to make an exception for Hauswirth. He skates hard every shift, he is animated when they score and last night he was very vocal at some of the other players when they made mental mistakes. Even in the paper today he called out his teammates for taking stupid penalties. "Something he says they have done all year and don't seem to learn their lesson", he said.
