Fat Guys on Hockey?! Nice. How do I get in?
Mishawaka has the population (266,000+ in St. Joe County, 198,000+ in Elkhart County) but no arena. I also don't know how people here would respond. What about Toledo when the new arena opens?
Are you phat enough?
Toledo Walleye will join ECHL in 2009.
I know that Bob Chase was talking about two teams waiting in the wings for next year. But I really don't see many places where we could expand. The Chicago team, sure will eventually end up somewhere, but I don't see much room to grow. Blake, you made mention of a team grumbling in the video, but did not say who?? Can you say, or give a hint?
I want the league to grow and be successful, but I just don't see to many spots to actually grow.
I really wish you would give more hope to the Indy team coming this way. Even if it is only hope, what a great day it would be to get the ice back @ the MC. Oh the glory days!!! Well, the glory days that I remember as a kid!
Youngstown is still a possibility.
I agree Jared, Indy would be great! Those were the days! I figured Youngstown would be out since they kind of looked down on our league.
If another team was going to join the IHL, I would suspect that a decision would need to be made in the next 2-3 months....by the end of the season for sure to start planning for next year and have enough time to hire an office staff, coach and do everything right.
