Welcome to the forum, please be aware that some posters opinion may differ from your vision / thoughts of what / where Fife Flyers Ice Hockey are concerned, but one thing for sure is the fact that all posters wish them every success and I might say perhaps the moaners as some are perceived may be even more ambitious for the team than the owners are, I might add that a lot of people on this forum are extremely knowledgeable about the sport and whilst often seen as misaligned are actually very accurate in their assumptions / predictions.
Not a good tactic and certainly not one employed with teams that want to win and be at the top end of the table, perhaps the supporters wish better fortune for the club than the owners do ...... I don't subscribe to the wee team scenario I'm afraid.
Friendlies are in place so the public yet again can cover the costs of import players being in the country prior to cup or league action to gain a bit of match fitness and gel in the room .......it aint rocket science
Maybe Flyers should realise it isn't them that pay for those expenses it's the spectators who cover all the costs they incur, perhaps they should comprehend that fact and maybe treat those people a bit better instead of appearing to take everybody for granted, after all the lack or no fans at all will mean they don't have those costs to worry about in the first place.
Well if the criteria is being good enough to play for Fife why are we watching Josh Scoon get so much ice time, I really don't like naming the lad but being a listener, does what he's told and being good in the room is not the benchmark to make the team ..........surely.
The coaching staff are responsible for 1000 empty seats with the type of teams they have produced, no change on that subject probably means less seats filled than before as people consider the bang for their Buck (wee bit of satire there). Shake our heads in disbelief ......well that's a fact based on the lack of ambition and extra bodies not required. IE, Hutchins, Kirsty Longmuir etc.
I have never thought Hutchins should have got through the front doors and would be happy if Todd stayed in Canada but after the BS printed in the Fife Free Press this week plus the PR guff reaching an all time low it really is heart breaking to see how the owners view the lifeblood of the club ......the fans.
It's not Josh's fault he is on the ice it's the coaches that put him in the firing line for criticism as he is just not at that level of hockey, I'm sure I could bring along a number of juniors or recce players that could do that same job if that's all it takes to pull on a Flyers shirt.
