Default Poor Media Coverage Of IceDogs

Interest in the IceDogs is at an all time low and it looks like ownership is going to try to keep everything a secret. I think this will be a disaster on the ice and a disaster off the ice if this is how the team is going to be operated.

Day 1 of #icedogs camp

We’ve gotten zero quotes about Dickenson not reporting

Zero quotes on Gaidamak not being in camp (or on the roster)

Zero quotes from any of the new players.

How is anyone supposed to support this team when there is no information coming from anywhere?

No Vsevolod Gaidamak on this list despite paying a 4th in 2023 for him on June 30th. Not a huge cost but super peculiar nothing has been said about it.

There is also an article in BPSports on the training camp but there is no details in the article at all. Just some quotes from the coach and Asst GM on how excited they are to start the season.

Not sure about the St. Catharines Standard or the three local papers, but Rod Mawhood has talked IceDogs every day on his sportscasts and had new captain Landon Cato, Darren DeDobbelaer & Daniel Fitzgerald and former IceDog now IceDogs assistant coach Andrew Fritsch on his show in the last month. He's still the authority when it comes to local sports.

BP had the training camp story. I don't know about the other radio stations or TV Cogeco as I have Bell Sympatico.

Perhaps Brooks and Young were shut out on purpose?

Both were spoon-fed by the previous regime and rarely (never) deviated from the party line. If you have been happy on a chain before, don't expect to suddenly be entitled to free range.

Hey all,

A bunch to mention here;

1 - I am not sure if it is poor media coverage or poor communication from the team, or a change in the media landscape - but what I was trying to get across is that the fans aren't getting the basic information out of the team right now. The reason for that? No clue. As of writing this post the team has now communicated with its fan base via press releases. That may be the way this owner is planning on doing things - time will tell. Just felt like there was a lot of opportunity to get people talking about the team that was just ignored by this new ownership group.

Also - if you're going to announce a blockbuster trade you probably don't want to announce a giant trade mishap like 15 minutes later and railroad your own momentum. This is media 101 stuff.......

2 - Rod is awesome. Great guy. I haven't seen anything from him on the IceDogs since early July though. Rod has always played a unique role being the in-house announcer too though. I always admired his ability to ask really good questions on his weekend sports show in a non-aggressive manner. With Rod shows being on CKTB and the rights for IceDogs being with GiantFM that creates another media hurdle so to speak. Again, Rod over the years always finds a way - no argument he is a pro and we are lucky to have him in Niagara.

3 - I am not really sure how Matt or I "got shut out". Matt broke the Dickenson trade like 3 days ago and I have nothing to do with media currently. Matt has taken a step back from coverage the last few years due to work commitments (I don't think he would mind me saying that). In our "heyday" we were writing stories for the paper, live tweeting, and doing the tv show - that took an insane amount of time and we both had to focus on our full-time occupations and couldn't maintain it. I would still say when it comes to information gathering/breaking Matt is the best the IceDogs fans have (yes, I am inherently biased here but it is what I believe).

4 - "I think Brooks was the better of the two" - while I appreciate the compliment Matt made me better and I made him better. We have been friends since we played Little League together and our friendship and passion for sports made it a fun run together. Also, when I was active in media I am positive most of you wouldn't have been as complimentary, lol!

5 - If there is a Mod who can change my name on this from the long-defunct TV show to just my name that would be appreciated. As I have no intentions of getting back into the media game I might come on here more often

6 - I should also say that the new Ownership should be given some leeway here as a lot has happened fast.....BUT....these are some potential red flags to how fans are going to be treated when it comes to information.

For example - the London Knights have already called a press conference to announce the signing of Dickenson. The IceDogs didnt call a press release for their new coach.

Yup... you are right. So you either accept that or forage for yourself, making your own contacts and getting the inside track. Sounds like the new owners want to manage their own message rather than filtering it through traditional or neo-traditional news sources.
