Took my family to the game tonight since we got free tickets otherwise 1) we couldn't afford it, but might as well have watched my driveway freeze over as that probably would have been more entertaining. Very sad when my 9 yr old looks at me and says "they should really play angry, like you tell me to do when I play soccer. They don't look like they want to be playing." I think that sums it up for me... :(

It's been the same all season long.....boring as can be! If I hadn't purchased season tickets I would have stopped going long ago. There will be no playoffs so no check from me.

Very true hit and a lot of sth around me are in same boat what a pathetic team win or lose they do not play physical or have the heart to play 60 min

Honestly now Blake, does David Franke believe that the product that is on the ice is a true representation of what is know as "Komet Hockey"? The blue-line is soft, our lack of a physical team up front is just a complete waste. They play Elmira who may be the "softest" team in the ECHL and we don't even try to take it to them in our own arena? I wonder how bad of a problem Lang and Vasky really were that the dictated that they wanted out. It appears the players are running them team instead of the management running the team. They talked like the other night they outplayed Kzoo, honestly Kzoo took it to them pretty good for 2/3 of that game and turned up a notch in the 3rd. It was almost like Kzoo was toying with the K's. You would think this team would play with a chip on its shoulder but right now they appear to play like a team waiting for something to happen instead of making it happen.

The #1 line has only scored in 3 of the last 8 games. Not good.........

im a big supporter of the frankees but i think now is the time for them to act.  whether its his fault or not they need to fire the coach and bring in chaulk to shut up most of the disenters. kinda gotta show everybody that they are still trying to do something positive. and somewhere find some guys who play  like schrock .

Went to the game. Only because of the Marathon discount. The K's played pretty well in the first but again could not finish. You could tell Elmira was into the game by the way they played. They skated hard and took the body pretty consistantly. They deserved that win. Komets look like a bunch of individuals trying to play a team sport. They had plenty of opportunities to one time the puck at the net, but instead they tried to gain control of the puck and then shoot. That's not going to score many goals in this league. The goalies are to good. And they still are not getting to the front of the net consistantly for rebounds. I also saw our small forwards getting knocked down and the puck taken away from them. I would like to see the coach show some emotion on the bench and try and get his team fired up. I have not seen it yet this year. I don't think this team will make the playoffs this year again. Our players are just to small and lack some much needed all around skill.

I am a season ticket holder for over 3 decades and know this is a family business. I think it is time big brother Steve take little brother Dave in the back room and give him a new job. Then go out and hire a real GM. I agree some of the problems are the coaches fault, but remember he wasn't here last year and we had problems in the locker room.

Question:  What did I think of the Komets vs the Jackals game?

Answer:  Not much!

The Komets played like they could care less. With this type of play I will not be renewing my season ticket.

If the Frankes have any care or concerns about what is happening the would bring in a real GM and make the changes that need to be made. If they waite any longer they will be in the same position next year.I can think of no one that want's more of this.

Things may be great in the lockerroom but not so good on the ice.
