Tailing the Komets

Al Sims' reaction

``I think any time you get a match penalty for swinging your stick, it's going to be severe. Obviously it was more than Mac's last year and Labenski's this year but I think stick swinging, they take it more severely than an elbow or a knee-to-knee hit or anything like that. Stick swinging is something they don't want in the game so I wasn't surprised by the length.''

David Franke: ``It was definitely a strong intent to in

Blake, what happened to the Komet player signings during the 1st period of the games?

Tue, 12/15/2009 - 7:40pm

No sponsor, as of yet.......
This just goes to show you if you are going to screw up, go 110% and make it count. If haun would have connected a haymaker with that stick I don't think any of us would be upset with the ruling.

Gosh I hate to go here.....I don't want to at all. But doesn't the reactions by these 2 men sound funny to any of you??? They normally stick-up for their players. Not in this case. No one here said that Haun's teammates left him hung out ot dry. Sims and Franke are throwing Tim under the bus slightly here, aren't they??? Haun took alot of cheapies over the past 10+ games from the opposition and his team did nothing to back him up. They let him take a beating, and Tim went out there, played every night, played well 9 times out of 10, his stats back this up, and gave his team a chance to win, and his teammates aren't exactly lighting up the scoreboard right now. In fact, if he let up more than 1 goal, it usually meant he was going to lose. And his teammates didn't protect him either.

Do all these people want Tim gone??? And does this mean the road is being paved for Tyler Sims to be back?

Sorry about the thought.....but I am scratching my head just a tad-bit here??? What am I missing from these statements? I guess I am crazy.

I think what they said is PC, maybe in the locker they asked, hey Tim, why'd ya miss, its the things we'll never know.

Let's put this in perspective, me, hit and monkey are walking the hallway, some furyjack fan slaps my foo foo out of my hand, hit grabs the furyjack fan monkey slaps him but the red coat throws me out because I'm the one carrying the flask. It just doesn't make any sense at all and I'm out an $8 foo foo and $4 worth of malibu. Brad Jones suspends me for intent to drink a foo foo but the furyjack fan slashed it out of my hand.

Perspective!?! Perspective!?! How dare you try to use perspective on a blog? Blasphemer!

Tue, 12/15/2009 - 8:20pm

Burgee--2 Min. for Blaspheming You must set next to me and feeling shame. No Foo Foo's allowed in the box! Perspective! What just is pespective?

Tue, 12/15/2009 - 8:22pm

You keep your eye on the puck and I'll keep my eye on the foo foo.

Old age.

Tue, 12/15/2009 - 8:40pm

Speaking of flasks, I remember taking one to the games in the days before alcohol was allowed.

Or should that start out, "Speaking of old age"?

Tue, 12/15/2009 - 9:02pm

Blog foul, Sebring and Schebig, instigation and this just in from Brad Jones, you both will serve 7 games for your intent to injure during the instigation (name calling) mental anguish is an injury!

Tue, 12/15/2009 - 10:01pm

Does that mean I will need buy a ticket to the games? Can I drink Foo Foo's while suspended? Blake this might work out real well!

Burgee, I'll bring you a new foo-foo. And I'll sic my boy on that big bad Musky player that caused all this dilemma!

Man, what a bummer! Maybe I missed it on the page I have not read yet, but so what's the plan now for goaltending? Do we still have some sort of deal with Evansville where we can get a guy to be Paris's emergency backup? And darnit, my team has a tournament this weekend, and we need Paris on OUR bench! Oh well, I suppose I could be less selfish here and let him off the hook for this one game....

Is it bad that I saw more hits and roughing tonight at the Mad Ants game than I've seen at the past several Komet games?

There were people at the MadAnts games? Wow....

Tue, 12/15/2009 - 11:26pm

According to the ECHL website Tyler Sims signed a regular contract with the Elmira Jackals...

Not wanting to be a stick in the mud..or the eye but taking the fury of the game out of it for a minute I am glad Haun missed. If he connected and ended a players career ( or Lord Stanley forbid worse...), his career might well be over. He is not Todd Bertuzzi or Donald Brashear. There might very well not be a second chance for him and at the minor league level there have been cases of criminal prosecution for offenses that are deemed grossly out of bounds.
The suspension is deserved. We can all debate the total lack of consistency with which suspensions are handed out in all sports at all levels because it is something that has been a problem as long as sports have been around.
Until they come out with flat penalties for different situations there will always be suspensions that we believe are too long/short.
So let's wait and see if they bring back Nathan Grobbins,r perhaps the great Ian Olsen or one of the Macdonald brothers who weren't brothers to be the next emergency backup on the reunion tour ;)

Off topic, but just wanted to remind everyone that the interview guest on tonight's "Game of the Week" broadcast is Master Sgt. Steve Kingsley and he'll be talking about the Komets Kare Package (which was wrapping up the night we filmed it) among other things.

Wed, 12/16/2009 - 4:43am

Off topic; but the Icehawks won thier 6th game in a row last night thrashing the Generals 6-1... And they played with 4 of thier best players out of the lineup... As it stands we are 10 pts behind them with 3 games in hand... This could get ugly fast if the K's dont right the ship!

Wed, 12/16/2009 - 5:34am

Pardon me JR but it's not very pretty right now! The ship she be a listing big time.

Wed, 12/16/2009 - 7:43am

Don't worry people- the Komets are fine! Isn't that what management and reporters want us to think? The ship is sinking quick. We aren't tough, our vets aren't playing well, and we have no scoring. Pretty tough to win unless we shut everybody out each night.

Maybe the Komets are a bunch of Steelers fans and are deciding to take the playoffs off this year after winning the Championship last year?

all komet fans are spoiled. its hard enough to win a championship and we were able to win two in a row and are looking for a threepeat. weve hit a snag i n the road and everyone is jumping ship. give them some time and we will see what happens. we arent too far out of first and at least we arent in the lower part of the standings. are we playng well? no do the vets need to step up? yes is it ok to vent frustrations? yes but its not time to panic, you all act like the f rankes and sims are rookies and dont know how to handle bad times! and think of this, maybe this just isnt gonna be our year! heaven forbid if we dont finish first!

Wed, 12/16/2009 - 9:58am

Is it being spoiled to want your team to play hard???

Wed, 12/16/2009 - 10:18am

Chuckitt - You should try out for the team since you are prepared to be happy with our past two cups and are ok with accepting not being good enough this year. What number do you want? Just make sure they get your info in a few nights in advance so if they spell your name wrong on your jersey, they have time to fix it. You'll fit in well with the team as it is right now. I didn't realize complacency was so contagious that it's even seeping into the stands...

Wed, 12/16/2009 - 11:07am

Wow! That was harsh Frozen. I love fans like you who turn on fans and players. Your loyalty is measured in centimeters. How dare you come here and insult fans like that. You should be ashamed of yourself.
