I don't usually come on here and complain BUT I don't understand Billy's blind faith he has in Dhillon. There is a reason why 31 NHL teams have not signed him.I 'm afraid you blew it Joey & Billy. When we were trading we should have got Di Pietro instead of Studnicki and Brassard or at the very least kept Ince who was capable of filling the role as backup. First time in 12 years I am having reservations on renewing my season tickets for next year.

Thank you Bulldog as you have read my mind in what you wrote above.
I too am giving some thought about next year's tickets.

I am wondering how an owner can fire the coach and then have a happy Thanksgiving family dinner together. The coaching is the main reason for my thoughts on not renewing next season.
I decided to give the coach lots of time before he lost my support as I feel he deserved a shot. I have come to believe the time has come.
Thanks again

I donít think itís faith is Dhillon I think itís no faith in the guy behind him (at least it is for me)

Win or lose this series, do not be surprised if Billy Burke steps down as coach following this season and assumes a role alongside Joey Burke in the hockey operations.

Now for that asinine trade to pan out .... he simply has to be be Dougie Hamilton 2.0

Lol

Stay tuned. The first of several signings by the IceDogs for the up-coming season. A promising future ahead. The winds of change are blowing.

I truly believe that the organisation feels that they owe Dhillon for the years that he sat the pines.
Example, he sat his first year in the stands and that was his choice to do so, but, it was so late that he probably, he had no team to go to especially when the Buffalo Jr B team folded for the season.
After that, I was depth behind others such as Moran and so on.
The year that he thought he was going to be the guy in their last run in 2016, they brought in Ned.
That's my thought on this.

Anyway, Incze wanted out if he was not going to play, so, traded away.
They bring in the young rookie and then got cold feet.

So, bring in McGrath (it has been so long since he played, I almost forgot his name) and then, he rots on the bench.

Sad, so very sad. Shame on both Billy and to Joey for allowing it to happen.
Lastly, shame on Mommy and Daddy for the entire thing.

I hope that you are correct on this.
That would make it way more easy to let Brianne hit our credit card for next year's tickets.

I was with you on the Cato thing but canít agree on this one Marty got 2 cracks at going all in so regardless of what happens in this series or the next (if we comeback) I think Billy would get the same then if he still doesnít win I can see what you said happening

The only way a Burke isn’t behind the bench or up in the GM office is if two Burke’s aren’t in The owners box.

This series has shown him to be badly out coached .... the playoffs have shown us that he can’t control his players emotions .... and the trade deadline showed us that we can be fleeced over and over again on trades. I also think at least in my opinion, that several officials in this league are tired of Billy’s antics behind the bench .... how many times this year have we seen refs scolding him ... meanwhile I can’t recall this happening very often to visiting coaches this year ...

I will renew my season tickets as I love OHL hockey, it’s a great affordable night out in the dull and dreary months of winter, and I would hate to give up the seating location I sit in ...

But I’ve come to the realization that we likely aren’t going to win the big one with the current Burke brain trust in place ...

Unless there is a gust of wind behind the bench, they can sign Sidney Crosby and Connor McDavid and it wonít make a lick of difference.
