Thunderbolts Dominate Mudcats

Post by CapnRusty » Tue May 08, 2007 12:20 pm

The T-Bolts dominated the Mudcats in almost every phase of the game here in Lakeland on Sat. night! The T Bolt's defence pretty much had the Titan O wondering what to do next in order to get the ball over the goal line. Final 54-31.

The Bolts are looking to effect revenge on the Titans this coming Sat when they come to the Lakeland Center. We may have a few surprizes for them both from the team and from the "PSYCH ZONE" where I have a new person there leading the charge since I am now working for the team. The Titans better wear their tutu's during their warm up because we have a nice selection of warm up music for you after the garbage that you played for us up there! lol

Congratulations

Congratulations to the Thunderbolts for a good game. I’m sure all 400 fans in attendance were so proud. How does attendance drop so rapidly from when you were playing Friday and Sunday games? This is a little confusing. There were more people at Bubba’s mud ranch Saturday night then in the stands at the Thunderbolt game. Seem’s a little absurd. A team cannot survive without fans. If the Thunderbolts win at the Lakeland Center, and there is nobody around to see it, does it matter? What Happened?

No better chance to fill the stands then play on the rivalry of the coaches. There should have been 3,000 fans or more. Foolish. Might should spend more time selling tickets rather then selecting warm up music for the Titans game. The Titans are broke and they sell the stadium. I just don’t understand it.

Mudcatsfan01 is a sore loser, much like their player #7 who was verbally nasty to fans. Too bad a good team has to have poor sport fans and players.

The attendance was actually closer to 1,000 I think but only had a little over 600 paid. There were quite a few freebies and tickets for players and special guest given out that aren't figured in to the equation but you are right. We should have had 3,000 there to see us embarrase Mississippi in front of 2,000 additional fans but what the hey! We are making an effort to do something about that this week agianst our in state rival the Titans! The players are are up for the game this week and I promise you that it will be a very good game both offensively and defensively. We want home field avantage in the playoffs and will like it! If your a Bolts fan be sure to bring your empty plastic milk, water, or juice containers to the game with you with their tops. We are encourageing all of the Bolts fans to bring as many as they can muster and pass them around to use as shakers/noise makers. Just put some lose change in them and shake the hell out of them when the Titans have the ball!

By the looks of each teams' remaining schedules, this game will determine which team has the #2 spot or the #3 spot (Titans: HOME v Speed, HOME v Blackbirds; Thunderbolts: AWAY v Bears, AWAY v Speed, HOME v Bears). It will be interesting to watch Mississippi, though. If Mississippi loses any of its remaining games, though unlikely (AWAY v Phantoms, AWAY v Freeze; teams combine for only 4 wins all season), they will lose the #1 spot and, here's where it gets interesting, could fall to #3 if Tallahassee beats Lakeland this week. Lakeland and Mississippi would both be 9-3 according to the adjusted standings (Baltimore and Gulf Coast games not counting towards the Standings), and they split the season series. While it's HIGHLY unlikely that Mississippi would lose to Florence or Erie, and this method means nothing if Lakeland manages to beat Tallahassee (Tally 0-2 vs Miss this year), it's something interesting to think about this weekend....

GO TITANS! (and Phantoms and Freeze:mrgreen :)

What happens if Lakeland wins out? Tie with Mississippi for division #1?

If Lakeland and Mississippi win out, they'd tie for first and Tallahassee would be #3. If Mississippi wins out regardless, they will get a home game and the loser of this weekend's Titan/Thunderbolt game will be #3.

JUST INFORMED:
Lakeland would be #1 if they win out, Tallahassee #1 if they win out and Mississippi loses 1 game, and Mississippi #1 if they win out and Lakeland loses 1 game.
The second tie-breaker (after head-to-head record) is head-to-head points.
This means that if Lakeland wins out, THEY, not Mississippi, would be the #1 seed, and Mississippi would be #2. If Tallahassee wins out, Mississippi would need to lose 1 game (at least) in order for the Titans to be the #1 seed. If this happens, and Mississippi loses 1 game and Lakeland loses only to Tallahassee this weekend, Tallahassee would be the #1 seed, Lakeland would be the #2 seed, and the Mudcats would be the #3 seed.

New Update

Post by BOLTFAN1 » Thu May 10, 2007 11:19 pm

When Lakeland Beats The Titans, And They Win Out The Rest Of The Games They Will Still Be Number 2, If The Mudcats Win Thier Games. The Rules Say In The Event Of A Tie, The Next Tie Breaker Will Be Head To Head Game Of The Highest Ranked Like Opponent. This Would Be The Titans. We Will Be 1 - 1 And The Mudcats Would Be 2 -0. They Win The Tie Breaker. It Sucks!
