Seeing as it gets a bit quiet on here during the off-season I thought I'd post the occasional quiz question. If it's popular I'll post more as I think of them. If not.....well I won't.
When you include all League, Challenge Cup, Playoffs, CHL and Pre-Season games...
I'm as disappointed as anyone when we lose at home, but some of the comments on here and social media are just ridiculously OTT.
"We need a clear out this summer"
"We need to hire and fire like Thommo does"
"Lord and the management don't know what they are doing".
I know somebody...
Planet Ice have invited expressions of interest in running a senior hockey team out of their 'new' Leeds rink (built from what was the BBT).
With a capacity of ~2000 (1800 seats) would it be...
Confirmation that TV coverage for the Finals Weekend will be the same as last year:
Sat: Semi-Finals live via EIHL TV
Sun: Final live on BBC online
After reading various threads in recent weeks I'm curious as to whether what we all class as 'being entertained' depends on when we became a fan.
Is it a goalfest?
Is it a low-scoring, close game?
Is the Devils physically dominating their opponents, regardless of the score?
Is it the Devils...
As it's the 30th Anniversary tomorrow I thought it would be interesting to see how many people remember the first Devils game they went to.
When was it?
Who was it against?
Why did you go?
What do you remember about it?
What made you keep coming back?
Quite a few rumours circulating that things are in a bad way in Telford. Even some suggestions that they'll fold after this weekend.
Sad news if true for their fans and players, which include quite a few ex-Devils.
And all this for a team that is top of the EPL.
There is a new website setup by some of the EIHL refs and linesmen ahead of the new season:
Looks like we have a couple of new refs too. Shame that certain EIHL teams opted not to go for the 4 man system this year.
As requested from the Nottingham thread, here are the current Top 10s for the Devils:
1: Jason Stone 1167
2: Neil Francis 679
3: Doug McEwen 667
=4: Shannon Hope 658
=4: Phil Hill 658
6: Steve Moria 602
7: Stevie Lyle 536
8: Mark Richardson 515
9: Vezio Sacratini 503
What with all the fuss over 4pm/6pm face-offs I've only tonight started looking at the fixtures and noticed this clash on the first weekend:
Wales v Israel 5pm
Devils v Steelers 6pm
Might affect the size of the crowd with people either going to the football or watching it on TV, plus I'd have...
Moving away from the argument on the other thread for the moment, is anyone creating a subscribed calendar for the fixtures again this year?
I found the Red Army Travel one really useful last season. Plus I'd rather not have to type them all in myself.
