Who else besides the ECAC linesman Mike Emanatian?

I'm seen Feola do a Crunch game as a linesman. Although he doesn't do ECAC anymore, I've also heard of Frank Murphy being a linesman. I haven't been to enough games to see if there are any others, but I have not come across any other familiar names.

According to this site, Baker, the Murphies, Wahl, both Whittemores, Kotyra, to name a few... http://theahl.com/on-ice-officials-p138232

My position is based on what I saw on the video. I wasnt there. But I dont see how I'm pointing fingers either. If a guy is that open, chances are somebody was out of position. I was just explaining what I thought the video showed.
I wasn't suggesting that you pointed fingers. I was only stating that I couldn't point fingers and complaining that the video didn't show most of the play. By the time they switched to the behind the net camera the forward was below the face-off circle.

Did they play the trap or the left wing lock?

They trapped. :)

The ever thought provoking and always controversial Ed Weaver's take on all things RPI Hockey.

Ed's considerable talents are wasted at the Ragord.

Nothing really noteworthy there, unless you count the fact that EW now knows that Tinordi is a soph. :)

Do we really need to get into this again?

Also of note, Mr. Weaver gave us a loss we never earned. Apparently he wants to make it harder for us than it already is.

I often type Earl Weaver instead of Ed Weaver. So far, I think that I have always caught it (as opposed to other typos). Maybe I will call him Earl from now on. :)

I'm a Yankee fan but nothing like seeing earl take on an ump or smoke a cig in the dugout. Now that I think about it, Earl would have a great time with ECAC zebras.

I like the Expos (or at least when they WERE the Expos), perhaps we should swap locations. ;)

Moving back onto actual hockey talk (oh, look who the culprit was again!)...

The thing that sucks the most about being in last place is that everywhere we go, after we lose, without fail, someone will try to commiserate or something. Like "oh, hope you guys turn it around soon" or "your team is really a lot better than their record." I find it exceptionally condescending. I want to rail into these people like you wouldn't believe. I don't want your pity, because A) they don't really mean it, and B) when the tables are turned, my response is going to be "yeah, we came down here, you sucked, we destroyed you and then we ****ed in your ashes." That will be a good day.

Had one guy on Saturday tell me "you have to admit, that was really a great game." I want to know what the **** game he was watching. Sloppy on both sides, if both teams could have possibly lost it would have been cosmic justice.

I understand fully-I find it to be getting harder and harder to take anything positive out of these losses. Good teams find ways to win, even when they have not played well. We seem to be finding different ways to lose. I have in no way lost faith in this team-I still think we will see a lot of improvement as the season moves on-but we are far enough into this season that hoping to be a .500 team is a long shot.:(

This is the most disappointing season. I can take being on the low end of the scoreboard as long as the effort is there. RPI games are still fun to go to because they try to win. SA is trying to play a tight checking game to keep the score low. As he should.
What ticks me off, especially as we get closer to Christmas, no holiday tournament. Instead we can travel Storrs to watch the Engineers compete against Lowell Army or UConn.
The UConn classic! What a great idea! Get rid of the oldest holiday hockey tournament and play in the UConn Classic.

Get over it. Times change and no one wanted to come to Troy for either Thanksgiving or New Year's anymore and who can blame them. The tournament didn't end for the sake of the UConn Classic.
