    .....that one of them thinks the goal is going to be called back because Vinc knocked the net "off its moorings".

    Which is surprising since it was Mitch belisle on color

    It was not Belisle, it was the pbp guy.......Belisle was trying to explain the rules, and had most of it right. The other guy was just kinda useless at listening.

    I watched that game for a few minutes before the UFC PPV started. I was a little surprised at how not lacrosse knowledgeable one of the announcers was.

    i caught the second half on tape delay.

    the other thing that was annoying AF was the director constantly switching the angle.......and the corner cam was behind glass that was scratched to ratshit and you couldn't see anything through it.

    Does anyone know why this game was a 9 PM start time when the game was originally scheduled for 7 PM?

    Northeast weather. Hawks had multiple flight cancelations and delays. Did not get into Atlanta until 8:00 pm and to arena around 8:40.

    Hawks 6pm Friday flight out of Toronto was delayed they had boarded then cancelled at midnight , it took over an hour to deplane

    Then they took multiple charters one arrived with 5 runners and a goalie first then the other was an hour behind, thus why the game got pushed back again

    Then Rochester didn’t come out on time after their short warmups and began the game on a pk for delay of game

    The whole scenario is one of the more NLL things I’ve ever seen

    Delta has 6-8 flights out of Buffalo per day direct to ATL and a few out of Rochester. I know most if not all the team lives in ON but I'm surprised they are flying out of Toronto.

    1) the first real Delay Of Game penalty ever.
    2) it would be true NLL if a busload of Hawks fan had made the game, but the team didnt.

    Still not as bad as the time the Hawks screwed up the players visa's and had to play a game with only 2-3 normal players and 14 born in the USA free agents signed on game day. IIRC they also won the game.

    I think it was 1997 but I'm not sure. It was a regular season game in Baltimore against the Thunder. I was at that game and wondered where all the regular K-Hawk players were. I don't recall them ever announcing what happened at the game itself. I belief ESPN or some other TV station mentioned it.

    96 or 97 definitely in Baltimore at a time when the Thunder would have been favorites against the regular hawks line up. It was definitely TV movie type stuff.

    Might have been 1998 I noticed Derek General won his only MILL player of the week during week 9 that year. Thunder were a good team and Hawks were sub par for the season. There is no news story I can find on line.
