  1. Are you concerned with the survival of other teams in the league? Do you think their continued existence has much effect on the league as a whole?
  2. Got dat bad ice good luck and a winning record!
  3. Haha! Clearly something somewhat big happened. Watching the link provided about at nearly 9 we have three minutes or so left in the first period for game that was supposed to start at 7:10.
  4. Just checked the SPHL site, and it just says the game should have started at 7:10. The other scores look up to date. Was it delayed or something?
  5. I have started going to some UAH games, and since the lower deck seats were only $1 more than Havoc general admission I figured why not? Now don’t get me wrong the seat being several inches wider is nice, but it makes it hard to see what is happening on the ice. Do you need to try watching the game different in the lower deck?
  6. Like I said nothing against them. I just don’t care if they return to the SPHL. Plus the Quad Cities together have a larger population than Southaven if not DeSoto County or Memphis. Edit Actually after checking Wikipedia their metro seems to have about 50000 more people living in it than DeSoto County does. Not a patch on Memphis itself of course, but more than the 150000 that Bus League Hockey has suggested is the minimum for an SPHL team. Too bad there is no ice making equipment there.
  7. You probably get free tickets and concessions at the games, and you can’t put a price on that aside from the dollars saved of course,
  8. I hope they spam their Facebook page with this every day until then, or I will forget.
  9. Is it too late for random people with no experience to interview for the position?
  10. They should have gone a little farther south to Tunica, and let folks bet on the games. It is just a short drive from Memphis with the highway open now. Minor league sports in a casino with legalized sports book betting. I can’t see anything possibly going wrong with that. But nah nothing against Memphis, but I wouldn’t get that excited for a team there. Quad Cities would just be close enough to drive over for all the road games. A person could get season tickets to both teams and have a SPHL game every weekend during the season.
  11. This is liquified sadness. Decatur is Huntsville territory so it is out. Same MSA and all. The Real Quad Cities are their own MSA, the Shoals, which is why I had hope for them.
  12. It is about darn time! On a side note the Quad Cities (Florence, Muscle Shoals, Sheffield, and Tuscumbia) is a little on the small size for an SPHL market, and I don’t think there is ice making equipment in available arenas. However, it would make for cheap road trips for Huntsville and to a lesser extent Birmingham and Knoxville.
  13. Welcome aboard Dale Deon!
  14. Eventually the NHL will try Atlanta again if only so they can move the team to Canada again a few years later. Plus I have to think that after the Seattle expansion the next one will be two teams with one in Houston and one in Hamilton or Mississauga. That said all those locations other than Atlanta on paper look much better than Las Vegas or Seattle, and they have already been passed over twice so what do I know. There just isn’t much chance to play because you’ll always have to go to a specialized facility to play so you’ll never get much penetration outside cities. Just an example I have an uncle from Ohio, and he said oh yeah they could play on ponds and folks would freeze their yards sometimes to play. There’s only one time in my entire life I remember seeing ice on a body of water thick enough that a person could walk on it (and that was the first time my father and uncles could ever recall as well) so all those chances a person has to play when they are too young or inexperienced for an organized league will just never exist.
