  1. Nope, just a random guy who is a Havoc fan. Nice dude.
  2. HAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAHH I'm sorry, but you are so incorrect, SPHLTrump is a Huntsville guy. He and Chuck just like each other.
  3. Honestly, just the fan in me wanting affiliated minor league hockey. Love the SPHL, but the chance to see prospects (even if its the scraps) grow excites me even more.
  4. It's just my idea, never said its going to happen. Unless I say 100% happening its normally me speculating.
  5. From what I have seen and from my interactions, I find him to be generally nice, but I haven't experienced what you guys say you have experienced. Just giving my two cents.
  6. Cmon, we have both seen some of the postings here about Chuck. There's some very strong opinions at least.
  7. Because a lot of former FireAntz fans hate him because he came in and fixed a bad situation, and during that took away a fan favorite name. It sucks, I get that, but people still hold this stupid grudge years later and because he dares not listen to their superior opinion to chance the Marksmen name back to the FireAntz. It just spiraled into this stupid one sided battle. And to the people about to call me one of Chucks's spy's (trust me, someone is), no, I am not. Chuck has had his share of mess ups, I will say that.
  8. From what I have seen in the past, Chuck stated that he was committed to a 5 year lease with the Crown, so losing a quarter of expected revenue would be very much devastating. I would expect the worse case scenario to be that the franchise folds.
  9. Macon is safe because they just got that new deal I think, but my money is on Evansville and Birmingham.
  10. Nope, unless the SPHL wanted to bankrupt themselves, they wouldn't go out of there way to save a team.
  11. I could see multiple teams in the Fed folding, but when it comes to the ECHL, I think maybe Wheeling, but who knows, maybe someone pulls a Manchester. If, and a big if, a ECHL franchise folds, and its southern, look at Huntsville to be thrown around as a replacement.
  12. I don't want to see the same 4 or 5 teams for a whole 56 game season, and it looks a lot better when there are more teams in a league.
  13. No, Roanoke is. Still, the more I see in these statements about possible financial issues, the more I worry we might go back to being a six or five team league next season.
  14. https://www.fayobserver.com/sports/20200316/fayetteville-marksmen-in-peril-as-sphl-cancels-remainder-of-season I know some people here are not the biggest fans of Chuck, but this is just more fuel to the fire that this could lead to teams folding.
  15. Macon - Website Q&A http://maconmayhem.pointstreaksites.com/view/maconmayhem/news/news_530172
  16. http://thesphl.com/view/thesphl/news/news_530159
  17. This isn't hysteria, this is true concern. All the leagues have the right to be as concerned as they are. This virus targets their main audience (lets be honest), those 65 or older. IMO this is the right call, but it sucks to say so.
  18. This is really bad, teams are really going to hurt from this. If I am a fan of any team that's not in Macon in the lower half of the attendance numbers, I would be sweating bullets.
  19. Got a bad feeling someone folds after this. This is really going to hurt team profits.
  20. Here it is: http://www.thesphl.com/view/thesphl/news/news_530098 Season might come back if conditions improve.
  21. FPHL season is suspended. Confirmed by Danbury. I have a feeling the SPHL statement is not fun.
  22. ECHL is suspended, I suspect the SPHL is next. https://www.echl.com/news/2020/3/echl-suspends-play
