EPL is full of teams going bust or jumping ship to go ELITE. It shows that Elite is the only league to be in. Why are people so obsessed with flyers being at EPL level....Cmon it's no where near the standard we are watching and has been proven nowhere near as stable. If everyone who is shouting for a team full of local players turned up to watch the kestrels/falcons etc every week then maybe I could see the need or demand for low level local player dominated hockey, but they don't, it's the elite league and the imports that crowds are paying to watch.
Nobody is obsessed with Flyers being an EPL team, its just your over reaction to something you don't agree with. And nobody is shouting for a team full off local players either, just a sensible import limit.

I couldn't agree more that the SNL was awful and we had to get away from it and get imports back into the line up. But there are just too many allowed in the EIHL, I'd prefer it cut back to a more sensible number, say 8 or 9, so that local players might get a chance.

Great road win. Only time Storm looked like the better team was the start of the first period as we skated off our bus legs and got used to the smaller ice pad. After that we looked the likely winners with good energy and forechecking.
I thought the webcast was good, commentators got a load of names wrong but were listenable, wish our webcast had replays.

I fell in one of the puddles in the car park a long long time ago, big red ash muddy thing it was. I was a drunk teenager trying to sneak in one of the side doors. I had me lovely beige Gloverall duffle coat on as well, rolled around a bit before I could get up, what a mess I was. Explain that to your mum the next day.
Whats the point of having a Flyers team if there are no local guys in it. I would hate that.
I don't care where they come from I want to watch the best team possible. I sat through SNL and it was a terrible time for hockey in Fife. This kind of hockey is fine for friends and family but the players are so far below import level.
The SNL was dreadful I agree, and I also want to watch the best Flyers team possible but for me that has to have local lads in it.
I also have no idea what you mean by your last sentence.
