All signs I see are that Osceola has a first class operation. It has to be especially refreshing after last years CSM induced nightmare in that area.
Of course, if there are disgruntled players trying to get a bad word out there, and with all that's gone on with the indoor football world this year, it does make you wonder. I have no doubt that he was given such info.
Keep up the good work, hope all things go well for the Osceola Football franchise!
You're way past your 3000 post reading deadline, good buddy and it's time to change your filter. You read a statement of fact sent to correct misconceptions on this site and perceived the statement to be a reflection of "Hurt feelings". It was, in fact an owner conducting business, looking out for his team. As to the last part of your quote..."If you make the trip with the team to Cincinnati in June,"... not only will he be in attendance, he will have ridden the bus with the players to show his support.MarshalsFAN80 wrote:Hopefully, I will actually hear back from you and this won't just be a one time post from someone who got his feelings hurt online. If you make the trip with the team to Cincinnati in June, be sure to introduce yourself to me. I'll be behind the fan club booth!
Yep...we got beat! But let me say this about that....that "L" on our record did a better job of knocking the rust off our game than a gallon of "Zud" on my outhouse plumbing. Nothing more effective than having to show a little humility. I expect a much different outcome next week. Go O!PIONEERSFAN101 wrote:Are you sure you havent lost some players? I mean a loss to the Phantoms?
But seriously, I like Osceola so far...Keep doing it right guys.
I do feel fans should be fans and GM's and owners be what they are. Sometimes debating issues together on message boards can be good and at other times a huge mistake.
I'm hopeful that he will be in attendance! I would like to get to meet other members of the league.thorgsd wrote:You're way past your 3000 post reading deadline, good buddy and it's time to change your filter.

BUSINESS shouldn't be conducted on a FORUM! This is just a place for people to BS about whatever they want to talk about. Reality is that if he had a problem with Jerry Hewitt then he should address him!
You don't come post BUSINESS on a public forum. There was no reason that it should have been posted here. PROFESSIONALS should not handle their business in this manner especially considering the fact that there are other ways to get ahold of Mr. Hewitt. He responds to e-mails in a very quick and professional manner as a matter of fact.
http://www.indoorbowl.com is a FAN SITE! IT SAYS THAT! Just because he uses the logos of different teams doesn't make him wrong or right on ANY LEVEL! While he might have made a mistake in this case, the FOOTBALL CLUB should take care of business without posting it on a public forum.
*I noticed that he hasn't been back to talk about anything else*
and it looks as though JERRY has a little response on the BUZZ that could be related
Jerry Hewitt on his DAILY BUZZ wrote: Do I need a lawyer?
Seems like some take offense to some things I've said in the Buzz lately. If so, ok, sorry your skin isn't thicker, sorry you take a simple piece of print and read far more into it than what is actually said, sorry you feel I'm such a threat to your organization that you have to take time from your busy day to tell the world how wrong I am on a message board. Sorry, sorry sorry. Oh, by the way, I stand by what I have said or more to the point, stand by what my sources have told me. Now I'm going to get on with my day and maybe those who have other things to do should as well.
I've bought season tickets for my family, called games on the radio, wrote newspaper articles about the team/league, travelled on my dime to see the team play, got to know owners/staff/players, and loved being a fan first.
But, in all that time, the NIFL has continued to amaze me. In a negative way. CS is still in charge? HP Patterson is brought in to muck up *my* team? After his Cinnci and Miami failures?
Some teams might be fine. Some aspects of the league might be fine. But, taken as a whole, the NIFL has LOW credibility. Respect is earned, actions speak louder than words, etc etc etc.
Jerry has far more credibility than the NIFL does. Period.
A. Be a multi-millionare and buy a minor league sports franchies.

Can I get the GM of the Osceola team to comment on where 6 wins came from?
I got you guys at 4-3.
Still waiting for a response from the GM guy for Osceola....
Do these games count as 2-0 forfeits or is it like last year, 6-0 for each game forfeited?
Why the secrecy? How come there isn't a special writeup on the league's website stating this ruling on the forfeited wins?
Either way, the Points for/Points against data is incorrect for virtually every team listed in the standings again this year.
