  1. I found it insulting that our GM came to our Lbox during the Detroit game and spent all his time talking to the damn Detroit fans. Guess he doesn’t want to hear from Carolina fans.
  2. 10-4 Top....can you please offer me a list of appropriate topics? I’ll make sure I only mention what you would like to discuss or read.
  3. I know this is a little off topic but had to share my thoughts on the below link. I have called the NHL Office to express my views which I will not do in this forum due to the political nature and volatility of the subject. However, I would like to say one thing.....Please NHL do not bring politics onto the ice as part of the experience no matter which side of the political spectrum you fall. I would extend this request especially to the Hurricanes organization which I have supported since they moved to Raleigh. I whole heartedly support anyone's right to express their opinion....just don't do it as part of our game experience on any level. https://www.breitbart.com/sports/2018/11/09/los-angeles-kings-adopt-bloomberg-gun-control-slogan-enough-after-thousand-oaks-shooting/
  4. Sucka.....best quote I’ve seen in some time.....”The way we look on paper is downright intimidating defensively, laughable in terms of goaltending, and mysterious in terms of offense.” That sums it up! Great post.
  5. Coastal...I remember when we could Tweet song suggestions to play during the game. I recall seeing the darn things and thinking it was Prom music. I for one believe the music sets the stage in the arena. An example is how VT Football comes on the field....(disclaimer - I'm not a VT fan but like their entrance) Now that is an entrance song! I for one would like to see us come on the ice to Power Man 5000 - When Worlds Collide or Volbeat - A Warriors Call. In my mind both set a heavier tone and both are clean for all those little ones in attendance (like my 2 little guys).
  6. I wanted to chime in on the soccer topic....I used to despise soccer games as well but having a couple kids come up thru CASL and TFCA, now NCFC Youth, I have a new appreciation for the game. It is surprisingly rough on the field or maybe its just my oldest is quite aggressive (I blame his mom when he gets a yellow or red card). Anyway, Raleigh actually now has the largest Youth to Pro program in the nation with the combination of CASL and TFCA to form NCFC Youth. This is an incredible accomplishment and it shows the support for soccer in the area. After traveling to tournaments for my kids I find the support in Raleigh to be much greater than other cities, including Charlotte. I for one hope we get an MLS team. Every Railhawks or NCFC game I've been to the stadium is pretty darn full of fans. I believe if they could get that stadium in a better location the attendance would go up even more (getting in and out of that place is a nightmare). Oh and GO CANES! I do enjoy a good hockey game live over a soccer match that's for sure. My oldest said he wanted Gleason and Westgarth back...he's the kid who just yells for a fight when we go the games. Well...that's my one post for the year. Continue on all....I very much like reading the post and visit everyday to catch up.
  7. My 10 and 6 year old give the best reports. They are brutally honest. My 10 year old (aka...Mr Red Card) will get on them for not being physical.
  8. Thank you for reminding me it is a hockey forum.....I also appreciate the welcome. My sons and I are long time Canes fans (Greensboro days)...I like what I see happening with this team and we are finally feeling good about the start to a season. Kids and I are actually going to attend some camp days to see how the team looks. Fingers crossed!
  9. AWAC...thank you for your service. I to support his decision to sit and I very much like the backlash. This is an emotional subject for me. I would prefer the below reaction... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PechzO5LASs
  10. I've lost confidence in Luke DeCock....he supports Kaepernick's decision to sit during our anthem. In my book Luke's thoughts on the subject should just be written on a Post-It-Note. I'm not a huge fan of the Raffi PTO but I believe in Francis and Peters. I'm willing to see how this plays out. My question is....who knows hockey better....Francis, Brindamour, Peters or Luke DeCock?
