Trotz

A nice article on some of the history on Trotz and Poiles relationship. I have never seen anything to this level in the Nashville local media. Not sure why.

As much as I hate UT, they're historically not a mediocre organization. I do wish the Nashville media gave more pub to the School right in the city, Vanderbilt.

One question to some hockey fans, what's with the inferiority complex towards football? Hockey has shown it can be prevalent in the south but face it, you're in the south where football is king and will be king. I was a football fan first then declared my love for hockey. I know care about both te Preds and the Titans equally but some hockey people have this all or nothing mentality.

this is an argument you can't win in TN....

I love hockey and I love football. They are completely different sports, and should not be compared based on how long the ball/puck is in play. If I wanted to watch constant play, I could watch 90 minutes of soccer

I get it, Hockey also basketball, are two sports where players aren't standing around for 35 seconds at a time. One thing hockey has going against it is te game does not translate well on TV. Put it this way, i rather watch a football game from my couch. I'd rather watch a hockey game from the stands. Hockey is one of the most exciting sports live.

These days, football broadcasts are stupid dumb. I don't need 6 different people to tell me my titans are mediocre. But hockey people shouldn't hate football because the game translates better to TV. That means more people watch and that means more money in their pockets. CREAM is in full effect here...(if you don't know what CREAM means, google it)

11 minutes of football during a game versus 60 minutes of hockey during the game.

What are y'all complaining about??

We sell out our arena on the reg; the Preds seem to be the hottest team in town all year, and the coverage and fan reception to the team/hockey blows what we had in Atlanta out of the water


Nashville feels like a hockey town. It felt like more of a hockey town when I used to drive up for tournaments (Nashville shootout) in the late 90s than Atlanta ever has
