    Cyclonefanatic Party

    First post on CF and probably my last. Was at the Keg Stand and anybody that wasn't there needs to get their priorities in order. I'm a life long Hawk fan but after listening to the staff, and talking with the staff, those are some great people. I don't know of another staff in the country that goes out and interacts with the public like these guys. To listen to Ken Pope talk about coaching Barry Sanders, Thurman Thomas Eric Dickerson(that is a special guy), Coach Messingham and talking to former players and the admiration they have for him, and Coach Rhoads who is flat out amazing. Just want to say you have an amazing group of coaches and any Clone fan in the area missed a great opportunity to interact with them. I was impressed and will be back next year.

    It's hard to take advise on priorities from someone when it's followed immediately by saying he's a Hawk fan.

    No, seriously, thanks for the great note. It's appreciated. We love 'em too.

    Re: Cyclonefanatic Party

    I had a great time last night. Got to meet coach Rhoads for the first time, and talk to some fellow Cyclone fans. The only bad part was some people were talking while the coaches were up on stage talking, so it made it a bit hard to hear them; but other than that it was a great time. Can't wait to do it again next year!

    Yeah, I was in the back. Myself and those around me who were trying to listen to them were getting annoyed, but it was still a good time regardless.

    Same here. My brother and I had to stand right next to them and kept shooting them dirty looks and dropping hints to shut up. If they were just there for social hour, they should have gone to a different room.

    Re: Cyclonefanatic Party

    Some d-bag behind me was yucking it up too, and I couldn't hear crap. Even his friends were trying to get him to shut up, but he wasn't getting the hint. If you're there to listen to the coaches, then listen to the coaches!
