The owner, RW, was reportedly removed from the press/media area after the end of the game in Westside last night. After loosing the fights and the game... RW was screaming at the shotkeepers and saying that they missed shots on Kurt (his son). When is Grisdale going to step in and stop Randy Williams from continuing to embarass the league, the Silverbacks and his family ??? It truly is a travisty....I bet Rylan Ferster was embarrased with having to have his old owner removed from the press/media area....Randy...Enough Already !!!
Never where the shots miscounted in SA. Randomly I counted this period and that period. Only thing I found was the shot counter making a mistake himself. That went for both sides that were playing in that particular game. I am not a fan of young Williams being our goaltender but those of you that continue to run the owner please go back to something else, ie where he bought his Chevy. Even that is laughable.
Yeah ok really..... the shots is SA are known for a FACT around the league by all coaches and definitely by all scouts that the shots are inflated by at least 7-10 A game min. RW admits it to people and does not care he actually thinks it is helping. The one thing that he does not know is that any coach who has coached there during Kurt's time in SA has been contacted by scouts who might have had interest in him to get what the kid and dad are really like. I wonder what they all would have said????
is this not the reason to have a board, my dear friend, i have lived in SA all my life, and i would rather drive down to vernon, to support a team that cares about their fans than look at that ugly mug of RW...teams belong to the community if you want to win, or you can just buy a winning team like the Minnesota vees (opps sorry, penticton)
Well on 2nd thought Vernon could use your useless support. Better tell them who you are before you go in the building, they might not want you around. Byeeee on this one, ohhh before I go, don't forget to buy you Silverbacks season tickets on the Early Bird offer next year. That will make u have as stupid as paying full price. Let us know how Vernon turns out!!!
Winning back to back championships sounds like a good reason to support Vernon. And not Salmon-Arm, and i would too. There franchise is a joke, and being young is a joke.. When there once were on top, no reason too support a team like that and i give you respect for cheering on a outside city. Or your local JR.B teams in Siccy or Arm
that made no sense at all to the AVERAGE poster. Why don't you bandwagon jumpers travel all the way to Penticton. Is it the price of gas that prevents you losers only travelling as far as Vernon? You are not true hockey fans, you go to the ticket wicket to buy your tickets and pretend that gives you the right to spout off and threaten the local club of your supposed alegience. Am I pleased with the way things are in Salmon Arm, of course not. You people that bitch and hang onto what others have said and say it must be true just to bitch yourselves are not hockey fans that should be showing up at Shaw Center to begin with. As soon as everything is rosy again you will be off bitching about something else.
Well I can't say that post makes much sense either.
"you go to the ticket wicket to buy your tickets and pretend that gives you the right to spout off and threaten the local club of your supposed alegience."
Are you really suggesting that a customer should just plop his money down and then have no opinion? Are you saying that all the folks that proudly followed the Backs before Mr. Williams bought it, and then gradually dropped out and stopped coming should ignore what they might perceive as value for money and keep blindly plopping down their money?
If you are happy paying Junior A money for a Junior B product then please do so. But don't pretend that should be what anyone else should do.
BV, Castlegar, Fernie, Kimberly and even Kamloops on a good night would likely give the Backs a run for their money.
