Training Camp Opens

Posted: November 15, 2014 in New England Blackwolves

Where does the time go? As the New England Black Wolves open camp today. With the most interesting battle. For the backup goaltender position. Who will win the battle to backup Evan Kirk?

The team has undergone a facelift. Since relocating from Philadelphia. With trades and draft picks. How much will the team miss the leadership of Brodie Merrill?

Are the rookies ready to step up?

More to come.

Rock Statement on Terry Sanderson

Posted: November 13, 2014 in Toronto Rock

From Press Release

Toronto Rock Owner and President Jamie Dawick has issued the following statement on the status of General Manager Terry Sanderson:

“I would like to take this opportunity to inform the Toronto Rock and NLL communities about the health and the immediate future of General Manager Terry Sanderson.

On a recent family vacation, Terry became ill and will not be in a position from a health standpoint to continue his duties as General Manager of the Toronto Rock for an undetermined amount of time. While Terry works his way towards making a full recovery, I will be assuming his day-to-day responsibilities as GM.

I will continue to work closely with Head Coach John Lovell and his coaching staff and continue to be diligent in putting together the most competitive team possible.

The Sanderson family is very appreciative of the well wishes they have received thus far and at this time we would like the Toronto Rock and NLL communities to continue to respect the privacy of the family.

The team will not be making any further comment on Terry’s health. As the lacrosse family is a very close one, we hope everyone will keep Terry and the Sanderson family in their thoughts and prayers.”

January 23 vs Buffalo Bandits. Having a palm to forehead moment. Can league and teams please stop with the gimmick crap? The sport can sell itself. If the powers that be stop screwing up a good thing. Is that too much to ask?

History note

On April 9, 2007 Wings co-owner Russ Cline guaranteed victory for the Wings final home game of the season, or every fan will receive a free ticket to a game in the next season. Wings lost to Minnesota 11-8.
