Hey whoever the Kool Aid drinker for Stewart is who gave me the negative rep for my comments this morning understand that I wear your scorn as a badge of honor. You shouldn't be gutless and have the heart to sign it To JM, with all due respect let's not be naive about this situation. When the head of officials makes a bush league statement about Coach like that you know that his thinking influences the rest of the refs. Look at the Harvard game and Hicks distribution of calls and tell me there is no issue.

I must apologize to Aspydad for three + years he has been saying the the officials are biased against RPI for some reason and I've been telling he's paranoid.Well he is paranoid but not in this case...of all people to prove his point Paul Stewart in living color in front of witnesses....it doesn't get any better than that...If the integrity of the officiating was in question before there should no questions now thanks to Mr.Stewarts egotistical rant and taking special care to single out SA...As long as Paul Stewart is the head of officiating the integrity of all officials will be in question that is a choice he made when he shot off his big mouth and a choice Mr.Hagwell will make if he keeps him in that position.As far as whom would replace Stewart...well at this point it appeard Bozo the Clown would be a good choice !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was not at the interview....however I did speak to Paul Stewart after the interview. No matter who you speak to, they will give their point of view. Stewart did mention that he requested a sports info director be present during the interview and there was one present.....Union's I imagine. He also stated that there were six officiating observers at the RPI/Cornell game who were consistent with their ratings that the officials did a good job. I am not trying to argue with you Aspy, I just think officiating is one of the toughest jobs there is to do, and that is why Stewart will go to his grave defending them based on his first hand experience on the job.

It doesn't matter what Stewart said there where eye witnesses knucklehead it is not a matter of opinion it is on the record now...he did it...he said it...and all that is left is what is going to be done about it...if I were the on ice officials I would call for a vote on non confidence because he has covered them in sh*t now...and as far as the six officiating observers imagine what would happen to them if they came back to Col.Jessup(aka.Paul Stewart) and told him the officiating was not good...well just ask Jason Klump how they would fare.It appears the apple is rotten to the core !!!!

I don't think Appert did himself or the team any favors by trying to pin the loss on the refs. Anytime you are given a 5 minute major at the end of regulation and into OT and can't do anything with it there is no one else to blame but yourself for not taking advantage. I didn't have much of a problem with the Bailen even up call, he did push the Cornell forward and putting a team down 5 on 3 in OT is a brave call to make even without the push. My guess is that Cornell fans don't feel like the refs were on their side either. We need to stop whining.

The past couple of weekends show us how important Bergin is to this team and how thin things are due to the 11th hour defections. We've got enough talent when the entire team is there but losing even one key player makes a difference.

Tough weekend. Unless we sweep in the NC then the road to AC likely runs through Ithaca or Hanover. Ouch.

I think you wrapped it up pretty well. The power play was not good this weekend. I think they fell into a common trap during the 5 on three situations. They tried to make the perfect pass and get an open net. You are two men up. Get a lane, shoot the puck and go get the rebound. I would like to see them be a bit more agressive and frenetic on the PP.

Appert has said all season that this team will win with its seniors and they did not play well as a group this weekend. This team is not as taleted as Yale or Union, or even Dartmouth. What they have is tenacity, speed, grit and leadership. That has to shine the next two weekends or we are looking at a first-round matchup with Harvard, SLU or Colgate. I think we are 3-2 against those teams with 2 of the three wins by one goal.

Hang onto your seats the last two weeks, this should be fun. The Engineers could finish anywhere between third and 7th. With the injuries and lack of qulaity depth, this team could really use the bye.

He passed away on November 22, 1963 when he was 46 years old.

The hit from behind into the boards really nailed his right shoulder-it was hanging limp for a while after. It was not a good day for him before that as he gave away the puck that led to Cornell's first goal and was late covering a man when Cornell scored their second goal. He is a very good defensive defenseman-but against some ECAC teams like Cornell, Colgate, etc-what we really need out there is an offensive defenseman for the power play-and that was missing this weekend with Bergin out. These were two important games which we could have won if we had the offense to do it-it just wasn't there from the defensemen without Bergin.

The good teams win regardless of how the call goes either for them or against them. Plenty of chances to win it yesterday both in regulation and overtime but sadly it didnt happen. These two games hopefully were just a bump along the road and a teachable moment for Coach Appert to use in the next weeks of practices and games.

The only thing that matters at the end of a game is the final score. Not the amount of penalties called or shots taken. Nobody asks how many call you got, they ask how many goals did you score. Im tired of hearing how the refs screwed RPI just as much as anyone else. There were multiple chances for RPI to score and they couldnt take advantage of it simple as that. Going after a ref or the head of officials is not going to do much but they always enjoy seeing emails for us the paying customers about how they should be doing their jobs. Maybe we can all gather together and head down to the TU Center and protest in front of the offices to force Mubarak....I mean Stewart to resign.

They can actually drop all the way to 10th (http://board.uscho.com/showthread.php?94182-ECAC-Home-Stretch-A-mathematical-approach-to-Byes-and-Home-ice-(2010-2011)#post5030856) if the wheels really fall off and things don't fall their way. On the other hand, they still have the slimmest of hopes of taking home a share of the Cleary Cup.

But, absolutely agreed that the mess from 3rd to 6th is going to make these next two weeks very interesting.

Does anyone know if Fulton disappearance as an ECAC ref had anything to do with his performance in one of our games several years ago?

It's a bit of a stretch for you to accuse me of spinning the facts - I pulled the quotes directly off Klump's twitter feed. If you followed up on things before opening your mouth and looked at his feed, you would know that.

Anyone else notice that the bed seems to be getting a bit moist after this weekend?

The ECAC has to get to the bottom of this whole affair. An investigation of these statements must be done by Comm Hagwell and the key to it is Ken Schott coming forward to confirm Jason's reporting. If these statements are true I believe that the dismissal of Paul Stewart is appropriate. As you all know, Ken and I have had our issues but many of you have told me he is a decent fellow which I'm sure he is. This is the test, does he tow the ECAC line or does he tell the truth and expose Mr. Stewart and the league's refs bias against our great coach. Ball is in your court Ken.

There is no way RPI can finish 10th. SLU currently 10th has 11 points , if they run the table they get 19 RPI already has 21. That bottom is now 9th. If Brown runs the table 8 more points the will tie RPI at 21 but RPI gets the tie breaker. I suppose there is some 3 way tie between Brown Rpi and a third team to drop Rpi to 9th but that is doubtful.
SLU has 5 games left (including their game against CCT on Tuesday). Brown also has 5 games left including their game next Tuesday against Harvard. A 3-way tie between Quinnipiac, RPI, and SLU leaves the Engineers in 10th.

Bite your tongue! Don't even think that. This team will get healthy this week and win the next 4 games and finish 4th in the ECAC and about 12th in the PWR-so says my crystal ball. (fingers are crossed though)

If we win the next 4, we would almost certainly move up higher than 12th in the PWR. I'd be shocked if we won the last 4 and were not back in the PWR top 10. Keep in mind that it is MUCH easier to move up from the 10+ range because (a) the teams around you are more likely to lose; and (b) there are more teams who can screw up, allowing you to leapfrog them.
