So it looks like the Wings are back - any fans?

Just saw a commercial that they'll be on PHL 17 apparently.

I remember being a huge fan in the mid 90s with Dallas Elliuk and Paul and Gary Gait.

wings always remind me of this one day in fall of 1974 when frank marchiano was my football coach. took a bunch of us to like a 1PM wings game at the spectrum. while he was there he bought (somehow procured, given the times i guess) tickets to that evening's flyers preseason game. what a day for a flyer-crazed 11 year old

he later went on to make great pepperoni bread

Two old players owned a burrito place in West Chester.

when i was in middle school i was on a travel soccer team. in the winter we played indoor games at Harmony Soccer Complex in NJ. This was apparently the Wings practice facility. Since we didn't field full teams for the indoor games, and because I wasn't good at soccer, I didn't get to play every week. My teammates told me about the Wings showing up after our game ended. I played the next week and brought my yearbook to get autographs but they apparently weren't practicing that week. I was pretty pissed.

Still winless after 3 games. Tank for whoever the best ACC guy is

Here's what the NLL looks like for those that haven't followed the league at all (like me):

Eastern Division
Buffalo Bandits
Georgia Swarm
New England Black Wolves (the former Wings franchise as of 2014)
Philadelphia Wings (expansion team)
Rochester Nighthawks
Toronto Rock

Western Division
Calgary Roughnecks
Colorado Mammoth
San Diego Seals (expansion team)
Saskatchewan Rush
Vancouver Warriors

After this 2018-19 season, Rochester's organization and players will be moving to Halifax, then an expansion Rochester Nighthawks will rejoin the league with existing history. There will also be an expansion team on Long Island at the Nassau Coliseum.

Shawny Hill has been dismissed from all Wings activities and all WFC PA duties after saying "Let's snip the ponytail" aimed at a Native American player on Georgia, to which the fans responded "Scalp him!"

2019 and the @NLLwings arena announcer saying “let’s snip the pony tail” to the whole arena and fans saying they’re going to scalp me.... damn Daniel.

i'm out of date on lacrosse rules. how does overtime work? do they start taking away helmets or sticks or something? 'shootout'? sudden death? do they still have fights in lacrosse pretending like it's hockey?
