To ponder on a cold Thursday afternoon..... When the Calgary Flames acquired the Calgary Roughnecks; they acquired a championship caliber team for which it took only 4 seasons for this management team to effectively turn them into a mediocre .500 team. This sad deterioration continues as there's a strong probability that we will be 1 & 7 in two weeks time. With a degree of sarcasm - It seems our current strategy is to just finish one game above the pathetic Vancouver team and we're in the playoffs. That's like saying to the Calgary Flames Fan - its all good, if we finish 5 - 77 as long as those 5 wins are against the Oilers - absolutely lethargic . To compare how anemic this management team is - you just need to look at Saskatchewan. Similar to Calgary, they inherited a championship team and 3 years later, they remain an elite team and some would say - an even stronger team than what it was 3 years ago. SO, where am I going with this? It is not for me to judge one's capability - I only look at wins/losses. I believe its starts at the top and looking at this post from 2011, I believe its crystal clear where the problem lies. Post - 2011 Can someone please explain to me how Mike Board is qualified for this position? Not trying to take a shot at him personally but I just want to know his qualifications to run a professional lacrosse team. This is from the presser Additionally, it was announced that Mike Board and Mike Moore have been named General Manager and Director of Business Operations respectively. Board played lacrosse in Brampton and Peterborough, finishing his competitive playing career in Junior A lacrosse with the Brampton Excelsiors before attending Ryerson University from 1979 to 1982 majoring in Journalism. Since moving to Calgary, he has been active in lacrosse in various capacities as a coach and manager including an assistant coach role with Team Alberta (Bantam) at the 2006 Nationals with current Roughnecks head coach Dave Pym. He originally joined the Flames organization in 2002 in the capacity of content manager for the Flames internet properties. Interesting decision on their part. It is time Mr. King to recognize that you need to step up and make the tough choice. It is time for your IT bantam GM to be replaced as well as the Coach(s). Stand up Mr. King, be that voice and stop being eerily silent when it comes to "your" team.
