I'd have Hamish back in a heartbeat, I'm sure most would. Pitton was good but never really showed for us as a fighter barring sucker punching a Dundee guy and hammering the poor Edinburgh guy in a total mismatch.
The DJ is brutal and a huge negative on the match night experience in my opinion, cringing already, same old scenario Mk7 coming up.
I agree Ronnie I don't like his DJ style, the over the top voice, the loudness of the music and a host of other things but this forum shouldn't be a place where people are called out as morons, we should be better than that.

Friendlies and pre-season games at ice hockey are poor fare at very best, ultimately meaningless fixtures that are best avoided. I can't watch them any more, my advice is to give this a miss doubly so because of the ludicrously high admission cost. £54 !, that's way too high.

750 mile round trip to see the Giants game. I felt like throwing myself of a bridge after that shambles of a game, I can't imagine what you must have felt like facing a huge journey home?
Once a Flyer always a Flyer so your stuck with us, in your position I would maybe stick to webcasts for the time being! Put a gritty Flyers team on the ice that play with a bit of heart and there ain't a better rink in the land to watch hockey though.
I reckon we could pick a couple of bodies out of the crowd at random and make a better fist of PR than we do at the moment.

Six seasons completed in the EIHL and we have done nothing really but tread water down the lower reaches of the league.
I think that we are capable of much much more but we have underestimated the needs of the league in many ways.
Our player selection has never been quite right, our coaching and game play leave a lots to be desired, our players appear to be allowed free reign when they are off ice and our general PR and presence on social media has been just amateurish at best.
Yeah amateurish just about sums up our Elite League venture so far. Changes are needed without a doubt and quickly to re-engage with the fans so frustrated with their team. We need a good season with a team that leaves it on the ice night after night, a tough fast skating team that sticks up for itself, a few impact players that lift the crowd and a total revamp of our PR and media output.
Some signing news would be a good start but I fear that TD is having problems calling across the pond using the tricky international dialling codes!
Stirlingflyer should be put in charge of our media stuff!
