Wednesday News

Observers may have noticed I have turned off the anonymous posting of comments. If you want to post, you have to register. I am sick and tired of babysitting the crybabies on both sides of the Fort Vancouver issue that continue to hijack every post's comments with their drivel. It's done. It's dead. Move on. There are far more important issues in junior hockey at the moment, and the world doesn't revolve around what happened with the Pioneers last season. If registration doesn't resolve the issue, I'll shut down comments completely.

Kelowna Rockets hire Ryan Huska as head coach (Kootenay and Portland still have openings)....

Jarome Iginla and fellow alumni Shane Doan, Mark Recchi and Darryl Sydor want to purchase the Kamloops Blazers...

Mark Seidel named commish of the NOJHL...

Local group in line to purchase Soo Indians, return in 2008...

Yale assistant Kyle Wallack has been named as Jon Cooper's assistant coach for the USA Hockey's Under-17 Select Team that will play in the Under-17 Five Nations Tournament...

Plymouth Whalers assistant GM/assistant coach Todd Watson has resigned...

Medicine Hat head coach Willie Desjardins denies being offered post with San Antonio Rampage...

More Tier III A local announcements, this time in St. Cloud and in Bozeman...

If you can't beat them on the ice, beat them... on the greens?

Marc what you did was good for your blog by getting rid of the anonymous comments. Keep up the good work.

Good move to stop the anon comments...thos now I have to find another source of my daily humor ;)

Todd Watson named head coach of Saginaw Spirit yesterday, 25 July.

No more anonymous comments? Well, get, what's the difference between posting anonymously, or with a made-up screen name?

It's certainly not a slam against Marc or anyone, just one of the shortcomings of message boards.


Blogger Marc Foster said ... (9:30 PM, July 27, 2007) : 

John,the point is most folks won't bother with going through any form of registration, especially the drive-by folks flooding this place.

The next step is to turn it off completely. I've done it before for short periods and I'm not averse to doing it again.


Blogger John Meissner said ... (1:01 PM, July 28, 2007) : 

Good point Marc. The thing I would want to require, but probably will never happen, is that, along with verifiable email addresses upon registration, but requiring people to post under their real names.

Oh well, we all should have some fantasy in our lives, eh?
