    Another reason for it being on a DIII thread:

    Rome Frenzy General Manager and Team Owner Brian Hall today announced that longtime Trinity College head men's ice hockey coach John Dunham, who retired following the 2006-07 season, has been appointed Director of Scouting for the Rome Frenzy of the Federal Hockey League.

    ...

    "I am excited to be reunited with one of my favorite hockey players in Brian Hall and to be a part of the Rome Frenzy at its inception as we seek to build a first class minor league hockey team for the Rome area," said Dunham.

    I dont think this team has a snowballs chance of being successful playing on the reservation. Since the owner made the comment that it will be an all Canandian team where does he think his fan base will come from, Cornwall? This would require folks to pay a $3 bridge toll each way plus $10 to watch a game. If they wants to draw from NNY they will need to land a few local guys from Massena/Potsdam/Canton area. With that said they would then have to find a way for fans from this area to change their loyalty from Clarkson/St Lawrence/High School hockey.
    I wish them luck but I feel they have too many hurdles to clear unless Mr Awwad has an endlees stream of cash that he doesn't mind losing!

    Quote extracted from here: (Bottom of page)

    WHY THE AKWESASNE WARRIORS NAME

    According to the Random House Dictionary, the term warrior has two meanings. The first literal use refers to "a man engaged or experienced in warfare." The second figurative use refers to "a person who shows or has shown great vigor, courage, or aggressiveness, as in politics or athletics."

    In many societies in which a specialized warrior class exists, specific codes of conduct (ethical codes) are instituted in order to ensure that the warrior class is not corrupted or otherwise dangerous to the rest of society. Warrior codes often have common features and usually value honour in the forms of faith, loyalty and courage. And we expect any player or fan who wears our team jersey to follow these ethical codes.

    Having the name Warriors can help bring civic pride, a high profile image and identity to the area.

    If you have not watched it, See the movie "Frozen River", although most of it was filmed in Plattsburgh and Clinton county!
