Another Nail in the SPHL Augusta Riverhawks Coffin

http://chronicle.augusta.com/sports/...r?v=1362498609

The team is forced to play in a practice rink because the ice plant at the James Brown Arena has failed. Add that to Bob Kerzner's track record of management success, and it's looking like the Riverhawks are done.

Maybe not that bad, nobody's suing or going bankrupt. But this guy clearly doesn't know how to sell a hockey team, and now something completely out of the team's control may very well torpedo the franchise (depending on how badly damaged the ice equipment is).

Does this guy own the arena or not?

No, it's a municipal facility. Global Spectrum runs the building. They actually have an attendance-based out in their lease in May, but if the ice repairs are too great that might trump things methinks.

The owner, BTW, is the guy who used to own the Pee Dee/Twin City Cyclones, which should tell you a lot about why this team is in the mess they're in outside of facility maintenance... but he keeps the teams running for a whole season and gets all the bills paid, so he's still okay in the eyes of the league.
