You can read it here.
I would bet my lunch that this has something to do with Bruner buying the Detroit team in the AAHL.
Do you know anything more here Blake? This is an odd situation. These Buddys are clowns.
No, Hit, I don't know anything else. I'm working on a couple of other non-Komets related stuff today. I said at the start of all this I wouldn't trust anything those guys said.
Even commissioners are allowed to have days off and celebrate holidays. Sometimes reporters, too, but I'm still waiting for that to happen. LOL.
When all this started in the Summer everything seem OK with this ownership group what change? I feel bad for Franke here he his sticking his neck out for this group in Dayton and the guy in Flint at it looks like it will all come back to haunt him.
I have a sinking feeling in my stomach after reading these articles. Darn. Guess time will tell.
Well besides the trouble in Dayton the K's are having there own troubles in Muskegon down 2-0 and right now getting out played by the Jacks. We have had our chances but just not putting the puck in the net.
Me and the family were having coney dogs at a new place on east state tonight and talked to the manager he was telling me that they were all set last summer to buy a coney king restaurant on state that was owned by the buddys pizza boys, he said they went back to talk to them and they were shut down, i guess they had locked the doors, left town and didnt even bother to clean the food out of the fridge. too bad! i sure would hate to lose the dayton franchise but something tells me that they will end up back in the east coast league in a year or two.
OK, truly, what sorta coin does it take to own, operate, etc a team? Could a group of determined people do this? I mean with little to no experience, but if they were smart and talked to the right people (read: the Frankes).
300K salaries Plus, 300K workers comp, 160K rent and on and on and on, sticks, equipment, bus, hotel, meals, league dues, lots of coin.
Team budget around $1.75 million to $2.5 million. A lot depends on if you own the building you are playing in. You probably better have an extra $500,000 back for emergencies.
So I better keep playing the darn lottery, then. And I'll play my team in one of those empty freakin' shopping centers all over the place. Clear it out, lay some ice, add some food stands....do that the first coupla years to get some money going. Then take that and really get a building. That would just rock to own a team!!! Tell my boss :"see ya" and just go.
Hit Schebig up, fronting bus trips with his coin!
Schebig, I'm in! You front the money, I'll be the "talent scout"....we might have to go to a whole lot of NHL games too to see what kind of players might trickle down eventually too, right? ;) Not working for you? Well, I am one heck of an equipment manager. I can tape a mean hockey stick, and if the player is small enough (say, 10 and under), I can have him dressed and game-ready in 10 minutes or less. Plus, I've broken up locker-room fights between 11 year olds in hockey camp. That's gotta be a skill that counts for something. Pick me, pick me! LOL
Hit--You and Burgee are really pretty free with my money. I am still trying to get my wife to understand about Muskegon. I don't need no more trouble. Cut me a little slack. Please!
