Lets go Komets! good job komet fans. make the fury fans look bad!

Joe

Justin, before you sign off tonight can you give us a E.T.A. that you think the team bus will be back in town. I know a few fans that want to meet the bus.
GO KOMETS!

Jerad Shaw.

Komet fans are LOUD. Very good travel crowd for the game. I'm hoping, if we get to the finals, that the first away game is in PH on Saturday night next week.

Ashley

So how does the crowd look? Sounds like it wasn't a a sell out with what Chase said but he said a good amount of Komet fans made the trip.

Jerad Shaw.

Lower 106 is pretty much all Komets fans.

Andy

I think we should try to get a bus together. I am sure we can find 48 people.

Jerad Shaw.

If the game is Saturday night, I'm in plus at least one. I'm sure Tom will come. Hopefully Conley and his wife would also make the trip. JW better join as well. That makes 6 people that I know personally that I would love to make the trip. I'll chip in for the 200 dollar booze bonus for a couple beers on the way up!

Ashley

How fast will they get out the schedule?

Jerad Shaw.

That is the problem. They probably won't put it out til Monday. Which leaves everybody little time to figure out situations.

Andy

Wouldn't we get the first game though? Since we did win the Hurber cup.

kometfan

i would think the games would start friday leaving the komets at home friday and saturday i would guess...will they do it how they did it with the port huron and flint series?? but wow did muskegon just miss a goal with 10 seconds to go and no it doesn't look like a sell out crowd to me!! lot of empty seats..maybe it was sold out at the beginnin of the game and then they all left after the komets scored 3 quick goals..lol

Ashley

Yes, we should get game 1 at home.

Freedom do not play at home next weekend. Anything else next weekend going on I have no idea. But Saturday the 10th they (Freedom) do. And Friday the 9th is the Rascal Flatts concert.

Jerad Shaw.

We will get the first game. Possible we get the first 2. Depends on how they make the schedule. If they go again with the 1-1-1-1-1-1-1, then it would be home on Friday and probably away on Saturday. If it is 2-3-2, then it will be 2 home games next weekend. We will just have to wait and see the availability of venues. The MC needs to really look at this, as the Komets are their number 1 revenue that is a consistant event!

I don't see why the first two games wouldn't be next Friday and Saturday. There is nothing going on in the arena either day, or even Sunday if they wanted to go Friday and Sunday instead. Either way, it should not have to come down to 1-1-1-1-1-1-1. At least a 2-3-2...Please!

Jerad Shaw.

I 100% agree Henley.

Jerad Shaw.

I have enjoyed the 2 Freedom/Fusion games I have been to, but unless they figure out their ownership issues, why let them take over the coliseum for the "2" playoff weekends we had this year. They had troule once again this year. It baffles how many chances leagues are going to give this team with their poor choices. Sorry I didn't mean to ditract from the the game. GO KOMETS>

Henley67250

And the Freedom wonder why they aren't making money! The people who DO come use scripts to get in, and most who pay get the $5 upper deck seats and just move down low...whatever, I don't care! "WHO'S HOUSE?!"

Andy

Serle is KOed

Andy

poor guy he was calling a good game.

Haley

Holy crap! I wish we had replay!

Andy

did we get a new camera angle? i really do not like it.

Ashley

Thats the same thing I think about the Freedom, but I don't like watching the games. Komets should overpower the Freedom!

Geronimo

Can't even see the puck!

Haley

The camera angle has changed... i think it moved to an upper deck.

Henley67250

They were fun the first year they existed, but have just fallen apart since.

Geronimo

What's next, the parking lot?

Ashley

When I watched the game on Wednesday, the second period it was closer to the ice but yes it did move further away in the 3rd period. I don't know why the move it?

Henley67250

This is called the "Bob Chase Angle"

IcyKometsFan84

Its sucks there is a light in the way.....man these B2 people suck

Henley67250

I second that Icy

Andy

This is horrible. If i knew i was going to get this for 1/3 of the game i would not have purchased

Geronimo

I can see the dust on the attic lights, but still can't see the puck.

Haley

i feel like i'm in a goodyear blimp

Geronimo

This is the "International Space Station view"

Conley

I wish you all could see me now. You think b2 is bad. I'm driving around my field trying to get WOWO in clear. Oh! There we go. Go Komets!

Justin Cohn

Are you obstructed by girders?

KometsFans

B2 - Why show the scoreboard when we cannot see it? I feel like King Kong from this view!

Justin Cohn

Here's an idea. You should start a petition for the IHL to get off the B2 Notworks.

Andy

If we did that how would we be able to watch out beloved komets justin?

Conley

Thanks Brandon. I felt violated all night and half today! I still say you had a diving penalty coming. Ha. Great fun that was. We can't get good refs for anything at MC.

Haley

as much as i want to complain about the video quality and the sucky camera position, i am super happy that i get to see the komets beating muskegon

Geronimo

Muskegon is out of gas!

Conley

What happened to the ref? Goal! Aquino!

Andy

Goal!~!!

Haley

Komets Win!!!

Keith

Komets WIN! Way to go guys!

Ashley

WE'RE GOING TO THE FINALS!!!

Conley

Road trip!!!!

Andy

Way to go guys! Big congrats go to the Fury they sure gave us one heck of a series.

Oh and thanks Issac i think he wanted us to go to the finals as much as we did. ;)

Bring home the cup boys!

KometsFans

No doubt definitely worth seeing the Komets dominate Muskegon tonight. Just pokin' at the view that changed. GO KOMETS!!!
