This is what makes me think that we are just going to have to ride this out. The ‘5-0 game in October’ thing is a great example of a coach in the OHL who has a lot to learn. And we, as fans, are just going to have to sit and watch and hope. Hope that Billy ‘gets it’ sooner rather than later.
More than anything, as you said Fish, Billy needs to learn to pick his spots. His tantrums on the bench are causing the very situations he’s ranting and bitching about.

I just donít know how you earn credibility with officials.
That's an easy one, you earn credibility by being credible. You have to be objective and see the play through another vantage point not just the view from the bench. You then have to acknowledge that the referees are people too and they make mistakes. Correcting mistakes in-game is hard enough without someone disparaging everything about you.

This is not unlike being a credible fan. Remove the Homer goggles from time to time, see the other side and concede the obvious. When you are visiting another arena or have visiting fans sitting near you at home it doesn't make you less to compliment their goalie on a great save or to agree the goal they just scored on your team was a beauty.

Be credible.

The IceDogs have a 20 year lease so there is no chance of them leaving. However you have to realize that the IceDogs are a well run franchise that has had a lot of success. That can be attributed to the Burkeís. If they sell the team, the new owners may not be as committed to winning and running a top notch organization. I think the Burkeís selling the team are the last thing we want.

They also have one of the best attendance in the league. It would be just plain stupid to even consider moving. I also don’t believe the BoG would allow it. The team isn’t going anywhere.... I don’t how this even a discussion.

I think some people confuse moving a team with selling it. I agree completely the IceDogs are profitable in Niagara, they won't be moving to Timbuktu anytime soon. But in terms of sale, any business is for sale if the price is right. Could some (other) wealthy guy come in and buy an established franchise and give the Burke's a healthy return on their initial investment - you betcha!

For example, we read earlier this season about Rick Dudley's wish to buy the Flint Firebirds and move them to Brantford.
He could, if he wanted, make an offer to buy the Niagara team and leave it right here in Niagara. He knows the area very well. And, knows a little bit about hockey. If he spent the time on marketing that the Burke's have, he could be successful as well.

It better be a HEALTHY return on their investment!

Because their sons and daughter in laws will suddenly be unemployed

LOL

Guessing Billy and Joey could find good similar jobs elsewhere in the O based on their experience and reputation

LMFAO
