    I agree with you. Should you not conform to accepting less than average on behalf of the team's performance, you are ridiculed. But I am here to state that most RPI posters on this board are responsible. You all thought that eight years ago, a coaching change was needed. Well, look at where you are now, compared to where you were then. The bottom line is that Shirley Jackson wanted to make a change based on fans wishes. What were the reasons for a coaching change back then? You don't need to go into a Fridgen vs Appert debate, because quite frankly, that would be an insult to Coach Fridgen. So here we are, eight years later and you want another change. Maybe you and Shirley should have put the resources into what you had at the time.

                You guys who come in here and want to pea and moan are thin skinned. Fishcore had a take and it was not disrespectful, it just doesn't line up with your whinning world view. No one ridiculed anyone, grow some thicker skin. I have no issues with peps on the board who go after me for supporting Seth so take it like a man. (

                  I've sat back and taken in all that there is to take in with this thread. I've had some time to process Sunday's monumental collapse, and I believe I've come up with an eminently reasonable solution to this team's problems that everyone here should find acceptable.

                  Fire everyone.

                  Fire the coach.

                  Fire his assistants.

                  Fire the AD.

                  Fire the assistant AD.

                  Explain to me what exactly it is the director of hockey operations does, and then fire him.

                  Fire anyone who helps with recruiting and replace them with FlagDUDE08. He will use a USHR subscription and the internet, and he will do a better job.

                  Fire the equipment manager.

                  Fire the trainers.

                  Fire the PA announcer.

                  Fire the guy who designed the jerseys.

                  Fire the entire marketing department.

                  Revoke the scholarship from every single player on the team. I don't care what happens in return.

                  Fire the guy at Houston Field House who makes the hot dogs. Every time I eat one, I taste three decades of failure. Way to go, *******s: you've somehow managed to ruin hot dogs.

                  Travel back in time and fire Liver Houston, who thought it was a good idea to bring hockey back to RPI.

                  **** every fan of any other team that claims to "hate" the Engineers. You haven't earned the right to say that.

                  Make it so I don't feel like calling social services whenever I see a kid wearing an RPI jersey.

                  Stop celebrating the 1964 team. Breaking news: they lost. Looking forward to the 2061 pregame ceremony where we applaud the 2011 team and pretend we don't know how it ended.

                  But hey, speaking of 2061, it's entirely possible that we'll have won a national championship by then. Here is a brief list of things that are more possible:

                  • Complete nuclear annihilation

                  • Massive earthquake destroys Troy

                  • Massive earthquake destroys the Frozen Four city with the Engineers leading by 3 with 30 seconds left in the national championship game

                  • Siena starts a varsity team, wins the national championship in first year of existence

                  • Siena basketball team makes the Frozen Four

                  I wouldn't wish the Engineers on my worst enemy. If Adolf Hitler was contemplating becoming a hockey fan, and was enamored by the disciplinary stylings of Seth Appert, I'd beg him to reconsider. Hitler, you have a reputation to uphold.

                  God **** it.

                  **** this team.
                  Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

                              After reading the past few pages, I must say, mission accomplished. Those who have been disappointed with this team have a voice, and the apologetics are running out of excuses to shout them down.

                              I'm sure many think that I've decided to swap loyalties to Colgate already. Sorry, Charlie. As a Bills and Sabres fan, I'm used to this, and was not surprised to see us choke, but doesn't mean I'm hanging up the RPI jersey any time soon. If Appert is depending on assistants to help with creativity with plays out there, so be it. However, I don't see much of a change from when Monty and Kurulak were assistant coaches with us, so it must be coming down to the ultimate strategy.

                              The investments put into the athletics program at RPI have been exceptional. Look at the locker room improvements, the training facilities at ECAV, and much more. The kids have the tools they need. Now, they must be expected to succeed. When you're in the real world facing a deadline to have a project complete, you don't throw your hands up to the sky and let the bridge collapse, similar to what I heard last week. You apply focus to the correct areas so that everything is pristine and in great working order.
