Something’s gotta give

I’ve watched some stinkers the last couple of years, but last weekend’s games takes the prize.

The Kings lossed in overtime to Knoxville on Friday night at the Desoto Civic Center, 4-3. They were then spanked on Saturday night 4-1 by the same Bears.

Last weekend I was mad as a hornet with the inept, lacklustre, p-poor effort by the Kings. I’m still ticked and it has been 6 sleeps since Saturday’s game, you would have thunk the sleeps would have calmed me down.

After pondering the situation of last weekend and the games I have witnessed this season.

What is going on?

This team is in El- Stinko-mode.

The hammer must fall, the GM SHOULD GET HIS WALKING PAPERS AND SO SHOULD THE COACH. Just a thought!!!!!!

It is time for coach to go. The team has quit on him. There’s no doubt in my mind. It may not be the best team on paper, but they are better than they’ve been playing.

 The D is more like DOA.

The coach has to go, no matter what ! Too much line juggling. Too much experimenting. Wrong guys out for PP. No emotion, the players are not motivated at all. Geez, the fans can see it from their seats, I can.

Joe Sports thoughts…

Last weekend’s games were pathetic…completely pathetic…

Landmine is in the land of the lost right now. Hey it’s not his fault, he didn’t know he couldn’t coach, not all hockey players can coach and it doesn’t matter what level. They just can’t do it.

If it was up to me I would clean house…fire both the GM and the coach.

But I know that is taking it way too far and is too much to hope for. Hey the owner is rich and I don’t think cares. If she cares about the fans, do something now!

Seriously folks, you know it and I know it, we can see it, the players look lost.

There’s no gameplan or strategy.

To correct this:

You need a new coach – a motivator and communicator, a young man with whom the players can identify and respect. The players game in and game out demonstrate they are not paying any attention to Landmesser. Hmm, I saw Marge at the gym the other day.

Something’s gotta give!!!!!!!!

That’s the way I see it and I’m Joe Sports.

The RiverKings record is 4-8-1 on the season.

What’s up next for the Kings

Ouch and double Ouch.

The RiverKings play their next two games on the road against the 1st place Augusta Riverhawks on Friday and Saturday.

Sports 56 will have all the action, America One will have it on your screen. The Spot in Hernando will have the Away Game Party. Could get ugly, so remember have a designated driver. I’ll be there pounding them back with you.

Kings Notes:

The RiverKings acquired forward Jeff Topilko from the Pensacola Ice Flyers for future considerations. Terms and conditions were not released.

The SPHL announced Tuesday that it suspended Sich for three games. Sich’s suspension started last Saturday when he sat out the Ice Bears’ 4-1 victory at the RiverKings. Sich will also miss games Friday and Saturday against first-place Augusta.
