    Dale Weise just said he's really happy with how he's playing. Last year he struggled but this year he's playing very well.

    Dead serious. He said this on live television.

    While we were waiting in line about fifteen minutes early for Neuvirth, Manning was doing his meet and greet in the same section. There was literally not one single person in line to meet him. His usher had to come down and ask everyone if anyone was in line for him... everyone was there for Neuvy.:laugh: You could see Mandog up there all alone with his ushers. I felt kinda bad for him.

    That is absolutely pitiful and a disgrace. There’s no one that tries harder out there and genuinely cares. Embarrassing.

    That is rough for Brandon Manning but also hilarious. Boxcar why didn't you buy a ticket? I'm sure you could of spent 20+ minutes hanging out with him.

    I think this from the movie Frankenstein with Boris K. as the
    "monster". Though it looks like a Charlotteville, Va rally.......

    It’s not pitiful. It’s obvious that the draw is not for players like Manning.

    Blame the Flyers for the way they organized it. I don’t even hate Manning but if I was there, and knowing the lines for the big players, I wouldn’t bother.

    And the genuinely cares or tries harder comment? C’mon.

    Didn't they have a similar issue last year with Vandevelde, yet gave almost no time availability for Konecny? Which resulted in a long Konecny line and people getting shut out.

    I used to go to the Carnival a lot. I remember one year I stood outside in a ice storm waiting for the doors to open. they would not open them the doors early. Its like the ushers and workers were standing on the concourse laughing at us.
    Always had fun tho. Meeting the players and whatnot. remember the one year JR let fans touch his silver medal from the Olympics was cool.

    This looks like a man with way too much undeserved self-confidence.

    The setup of the whole thing was poor, it felt rushed and unplanned unlike years prior.

    No more professional pictures, it just seemed really silly.

    I really only wanted 4 players this year, Ghost[sold out], Patrick[sold out], Weal[was told by 3 people that he wasn't there because of his potential injury], Sanheim[the two times I saw him, his line was poorly constructed and they were turning people away & he looked like he hated every minute of it.

    This was like my fourth or fifth carnival, so I could be just nitpicking because everyone on the big screen was "enjoying" it or at least they said as much.

    To add to this, I even saw a girl and a guy walking around wearing a Manning jersey[yes both of them].


    Also ; I saw that girl on the tron too and then I turned to my girlfriend and I was like who the hell would ever want that to take place. She laughed and told me I'm too harsh.

    I also caught a glimpse of Paul Holmgren serving food at a concession stand on my way out, which was interesting to see.

    I thought it seemed a little less crowded than the first two times I went. I didn't have to wait long for any of my players (TK, Jake, and Coots). Granted, we arrived to each section about 30 minutes before each meet started, but even when it was my turn, the lines didn't look hideous compared to years past, though I noticed Simmer and Patrick had long lines.

    Coaches didn't seem like they were out too long, but maybe I wasn't paying attention. Maybe that was intentional. Didn't give two ****s about Hakstol but I tried to get in line for Lappy and found it was already cut off.

    Lehtera didn't seem like a popular draw, either... not many people in line to play Giant Pong with him, haha.

    So yeah, maybe a little more disorganized than before, but I still had a good time.

    Saw a Weise and a Flyers Mark Alt jersey too! I mean, I'm not gonna judge how people spend their money, but unless they're family or something, it just strikes me as odd to see those jerseys floating around.

    when I was married to my first wife, she had a weird affection for the terrible players/goons. not sure why. She loved Sandy McCarthy when he was a Flyer. She just about cried when the Flyers traded him lol

    I just want to add that I'm kinda miffed that the Chick fil a gift cards they gave everyone are only good at Philly locations... not everyone that goes to this thing is from the area...

    Sorry, guys, I was perhaps too harsh with my comments. I know he does the best he can with limited skills.
