Is Frankfield for real? Has he never heard of freedom of speech, let alone freedom of the press?
The Detroit Free Press is not considered a real news source for NAHL info...the only info that can be confirmed is what is found on NAHL.com
Little wonder that the NAHL is floundering.

unbelieavable! who is this guy, Hitler?
Stephen, can you prove - "a $25,000 fine for any owner that is discovered to be in communication with me" - ?
Is this fact, innuendo or just a headline?
No... Maxwell Smart
I've been told this by 11 different owners...
Might want to re-read your copy of the Bill of Rights. 1st Amendment guarantees that government will not prohibit free speech or free press. Private business are under no obligation to share thier information with the public. Why does Mr. Heisler seem to think he is entitled to information from the NAHL or any other league?
Also, can you really call junior hockey.com part of the press? Heisler uses the site to try and generate cash for himself. He is activley soliciting money from the teams and leagues he "covers" on this site. That is not journalism, that is called being an entreprenuer. Nothing wrong with that but let's call a spade a spade. I just hope he spends as much time trying to place those boys who have paid him cash to be listed on this site, as he does digging up dirt.
The A-List is about self promotion, not about ME placing players. $100 is not a lot of money compared to the other sites that deliver a fraction of the traffic we generate as a news site.
Regardless of what you think, we provide a ton of coverage for the leagues that do not advertise on this site. The USHL, Can Hockey League, EJHL, and USA Hockey do not advertise here, yet we provide coverage.
With your thought in mind, ESPN gives money to the NFL, should they not be considered a news source? NHL and NBA teams advertise in all sorts of media, does that mean that the NY Times, USA Today, and others should not be considered a news source?
About the NAHL, any information that I can find is fair game. The fact is, the owners, players, coaches, and fans are my biggest source of that information.
The league wants fans to buy tickets, but does not want them to utilize this site for any news.I don't know, but I don't recall seeing any ESPN trucks outside of NAHL arenas. Heck, I am not sure if ANY other news source covers the NAHL as we do.
Might be fair to tell the readers...
Charles joins us from Frisco, Tx and has been all over this site for some time. His visits generally stick to whatever we are saying about the NAHL. He also took a lot of time reading anything related to Tony Curtale.
Charles may or may not be his real name, but he has lurking hee for a very long time.
You are disputing freedom of speech and freedom of the press? Yikes. What planet are you from? Have you ever heard of the "Freedom of Information Act?" Apparently not.
P.S. I would hope that Heisler uses this site to generate cash. Do you expect him to work for free? Do you? Get real, man. Who doesn't work to try to make a living? Not me. You?

$25,000 fine for the actions of owners off the ice, yet no fine or suspension for a certain coach for his suspect actions during a game. The league should provide more protection for the players, as is there duty, not to protect the shady dealings behind closed doors of certain parties...just a thought!
Stephen. "no one has ever stirred the POT" like you do. Lmao
Stephen, "God bless you, its time that their are people that protect the players interests in hockey. Dont ever back down to anybody and as long as you stick up for the players, and their rights, you will be well respected and deserve the small incomes you generate. You deserve more for all the hard work you do. You also put all teams on notice that you will do whatever it takes to help the players even if it costs you advertising revenues from teams you blow the whistle on.
Just curious how much money Frankenfeld makes as commissioner of the "red ink" NAHL? And does he get a commission for every new team that has joined the league since he's been commish?
