Pens win tonight 6-5. Refs are definitely calling penalties. Bad side of that is that is slowing down the game. 16 total penalties called in this game, 7 in the first period alone. 7 slashing penalties and 2 were face off violations.

Guentzel was the star of the night. 1 goal and 4 assists

Reminds me of 2005-2006, when the refs were calling everything (i.e. Gonchar that first half of the season had to have set some kind of record for hooking penalties lol). I did not like it for the flow of the game thing, but once players learned, the play definitely improved over the next two or three seasons after that.

Haha thanks crabber!

And thanks coach99 for starting a thread down here lol. Most of us have probably been too afraid to do so!


I know I wanted to start some threads a couple time but IMO, too much divisive bull stuff gets put in this section. Can't even have an intelligent debate with some of the outlandish stuff that has been posted

Agreed on all accounts. Neil Gorsich. Trump's State of the Union address. The entire Russian Collusion story. The meetings between Trump and other foreign leaders aside from the UN speech and former President Obama's lasting influence and relationships with some of them. The travel ban. The proposed pulling out of the Paris Accords. North Korea. The Iranian deal. Syria and again Russia's influence and relationships with them. The health care repeal and replace attempt. McCain's/Murkowski's/Collins' stand against the bill presented. Everything involving Jeff Sessions. The Mooch, Steve Bannon, and Reince Prebius. The voices of John Kasich, Barack Obama, George Will, Shepard Smith, etc. Kushner and Ivanka and their roles and influence. Trump's Middle East visit. Charlottsville and the aftermath. Trump's hurricane response. And you can go on and on. I would love to discuss some of these with some of you, but my fear is that for every one rational person willing to share their opinion in an educated way there are two or more who will resort to generalizing and name calling or spouting off information that they read in some click bait article on their facebook feed. That is what is frustrating to me.

Agree Steamers.  Last year Middletown mercy ruled them 50-14.  The Raiders loaded the box and completely shut down Neely and forced EP to pass, which they do well.  The problem passing against Middletown is the safeties are all basketball players.  Mills, Plummer and Hughes.  I would expect to see the same this year.  EP may ding both Middletown and Steel-High for a few scores but their D is so suspect, they are probably going to be in big trouble anyway.  Big Spring scored 46 on them in a loss and West Perry, who was out gained 400 yards to 3o in the first half and gave up 56 points(Raiders scored on their first 8 possesions) was actually leading EP early in the 2nd and scored 21 against them.  West Perry's only points against Middletown were against the Raiders 3rd team which is actually the 2nd string JV's and some of the Freshmen. 

I just can't imagine either Steel-High or Middletown not lighting up this EP defense big time.  As I said, I think they have a very good offense.  The problem is with that D being on the field for long periods of time, their offense is going to have zero room for error against either of these teams.  One thing I never thought about with all the 300 pounders both the Raiders and Rollers have until I heard the Middletown coach being interviewed was this.  He said one of the reasons he dresses his big kids as freshmen is they never played any midget ball because they were too big.  So he plays them a lot in the second half of blowouts so they essentially get a game and a half every week counting their frosh game so they can develop quicker.  I'd bet Erby is doing the same thing at Steel-High.

One other thing I just checked.  Neely is averaging 9.0 yards per carry.  M-town's Fox is averaging 11.8 and Soph Lopez 9.5.

I was just looking at schedules this morning and I saw EPs. Back to back game vs the Raiders and Rollers is bound to have an adverse affect on them. Both teams are very capable of not only wearing them down but also taking away some of their fire. If they come through those back to back games unscathed I'll be totally amazed.

You Megan2,
do you know if Sophomore Quinton Szekeres (#88 on the football team) is a baller? At 6'8" he could be a lot of help on the boards and in the paint

Fans are getting sick of being lied to year after year and the attendance is starting to show that. I'm not disagreeing at all with your attendance numbers Bob but those numbers must be paid attendance because there is no way that PNC Park has been close to half full for these past couple games. Kinda the way the Penguins keep touting their home sell out streak but I have sat in that arena for quite a few games where I saw many seats empty

People are going to blame Tyler Glasnow if the Bucs lose this, and he continues to look bad on the major league mound.

But far too few will talk about the weak ABs with the bases loaded by their #2 & #3 hitters, Starling Marte and Andrew McCutchen, AGAIN.


Fortunately, Frazier doubles in two runs early, and walks off with a two-run home run to win it.
