Ok, Nashville is one off the coolest cities in America. The place is awesome, and the NHL club tore shit up last year.
But anyone who thought Tier III NA3HL hockey would be successful in Nashville is a freakin moron. Really. Who’s bright idea was it to put an NA3HL team in Nashville? Its about as smart as putting one in say……Dayton Ohio! Ha Ha Ha
No, really its a serious question. Who is the idiot who made that call? Cause if you do a simple demographic profile, there’s not one thing that should give anyone confidence that Tier III hockey would work in Nashville.
The business profile doesn’t fit. The player development profile doesn’t fit. Not to mention that A-Game arena was a freakin mess before this team was even announced should have been a real red flag.
This idea was about as smart as setting up a freakin snow cone shop at Mount Everest base camp. You don’t try to sell hockey to a hockey city that already has a better product, and do it under the same name and logo.
But hey, its just another day in Tier III right? Sell another franchise, collect a check, and hope like hell the team can survive. Real sound business plan there. Makes all the sense in the world.
Don’t worry there are kids just lining up to write check for this huh? Is that the sales pitch used on franchise owners? I really would like to know because there really cant be that many suckers in the world that go for that bullshit story.
So, who is next? Yeah, that’s right, I don’t think the Tier III collapse is done yet. My money is on one or two more teams going down. The only question is when will it happen?
Maybe some more teams can get away with using 15 year old players this year? You know, cause that’s so good for development and all. Yep, Nashville played a player before his 16th birthday. But I am sure its all about the kids at Tier III.
Maybe it was the cancellation of tomorrow’s game that gave it away? Or the other six missing games compared to everyone else schedule? Funny how these guys cant even get the public relations basics down on this stuff after so many teams have folded this year.
Nashville. Another Tier III market flushed down the freakin toilet. Funny how that proven pathway is looking a lot more like a road to ruin these days huh?
Ya’ll come back now real soon! Ha Ha Ha
