QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"He's a meat and potatoes guy. He bangs, he fights. He's (always) the same guy. At the end of the day he's being rewarded for hard work and keeping it simple. He has been going north-south. He goes to the net with and without the puck and he shows up to play every night."

I'm here ! still a fan of Canadian Junior Hockey and the Regina Pats Hockey Club, you might recognize my " GO PATS GO " that I try to post every chance I get In support of the young people who play the game through the good times and the not so good, It Is what It Is, nothing I can do about the on Ice product but I keep on cheering on the team. " GO PATS GO " Blades????

to the last Anon... well I guess you have no life then huh. I got better things to do than sitting there watching them lose every night. I feel sorry for Pat conacher and the coaching staff in trying to get these kids to buy in to what he is teaching them. Just laziness. The product on hte ice sucks. There is a real psyche problem with this organization. it has been like this in the last 20 years.Like just making hte playoffs is good enough and oh wel if we lose in hte first round oh well. In parkers eyes ,its oh well at least hte building is full every night.

I don't think the Pats are going to make the playoffs this year.

To the positive Anon poster who still supports them, good for you....you're not alone. I will continue to go the games and enjoy our season tickets. My young goalie son looks up to these kids. To the Anon poster who claims we have no life.....at least we get out and support young kids who are playing a game they love. Remember...they are kids, not professional hockey players.

It does get very frustrating when they lose game after game but that won't stop me from supporting them. I hope the organization can figure out a way to turn it around and we can enjoy some winning streaks in the future.

GO PATS!!

A serious question to the Pat fans:

How come you guys are feeling sorry for Pat Conacher but you couldn't wait for Curtis Hunt to be gone? Are you just realizing that it's not your coaches fault? There is no winning culture in the organization anymore. Need a total overhaul to try and get that back. The The pats organization has had bigger problems than it's coaches the last several years.

Anon # 4, that's your prerogative, continue to do what you do and leave others out of your opinion. You have a personal problem or Issue with the hockey club, take It to ownership and management. " GO PATS GO "

To lC..... I go to my share of games thank you and have held season tickets for a few years. But to me its getting kind of sickening seeing them lose every year. Its good that your son looks up to them. Good for him.I did when I was young too.Like some can only support them so much and then get fed up. I know they are kids, but you look at other junior franchises and their success and how they build championship teams. Like some of us would like to see a championship here. We have not won the league since 1984. I agree with the last poster, there is no winning culture here any more. The attitude needs to change around here or the pats are going to lose fans.

I agree The pats organization has problems bigger than those whom coach the team.

To the last comment.... do you think ownership or management is going ot listen. the pats problem is not with management but with ownership. Think about it we have not made it past the first round of the playoffs since the parkers arrived. some media in this continues to denie that they have a problem even though you can see it every year with their lack of talent on the ice as opposed to other teams. Some sports media in this town think they are GMs too and don't value the avg fans opinion the ones that actually pay for tickets and actually support them. The pats are so glorified in this city that when they are losing its like oh well therte is no problem here. Well there is a problem here. there has been a problem for the last 30 some years,

If the Pats where a winning team for the last 30 years people would still Bi*ch and cry. I beleive this city is full of cry babies.

Regina sport fans are cry babies!!!
