Kings Flounder in Basement As Owner Brock Frost Misses Another Candidates Debate by Jamie Gilcig  UPDATED

brock frost SUBMCORNWALL Ontario – Maybe it’s the carnival atmosphere created by new owner Brock Frost or maybe the Hockey Gods simply are not shining, but this year’s Cornwall River Kings find them selves dead last in the LNAH in the early going of the season.

New owner Brock Frost, who’s also running for council; but has not spoken at a single event after complaining about sleep and stress issues, seemed more focus on his River Queens than his players, discounting his roster and fans being on the hook for a limp offering so far in the season.

The Kings sport a 1-3 record with 14 goals for and league leading 186 shots against!  Clearly in hockey you get better results when you shoot more than when you’re shot upon.  They also lead the LNAH with a whopping -11 goal differential.

The team is 2-36 on the Power play; 10% worse than the next sad sack in the league.  It’s penalty kill, at 67% is also league worst.

 

Mr. Frost answered questions from his stated sleep clinic study where he again refused to categorically state that he’d personally guarantee season ticket holders refunds in the event that the team for any reason didn’t finish the season on his watch, as some in the city suggest that Mr. Frost bought the team as a stunt to help get him elected to council.  Mr. Frost, who recently posted that he had 31 straight hours of sleep has stated that he’s been diagnosed with Mini Stroke symptoms which the esteemed Mayo Clinic out line possible life style issues that could trigger them including Smoking, drinking, birth control pills, lack of exercise and abuse of drugs like cocaine.  He also stated that he somehow left the Library debate, was rushed by ambulance to the hospital and was released and returned right as rain before the end of the debate in less than 90 minutes.

Fan fave Chris Cloutier has 25 penalty minutes as he chases his total of 277 last season.

What do you think River King fans?  Can the team turn it around?  Should the team dress the River Queens instead of some of the current roster?

Are there any other promotions that Frosty the Snowman can run to spur success?   You can post your comments below.

UPDATE

CFN has confirmed that the sleep clinic that Mr. Frost referred to on facebook does not offer 3 day 2 night testing and that there is a six to eight week wait for any testing.   Mr. Frost has not returned our query asking him to prove his public statements.

Encouraging Frosty the Showman for city council, would be like assisting a suicide.

6 to 8 week waiting time. That’s being generous. When I was waiting for my last appointment it was 6 months before I was seen. I’ve had a few sleep tests and it’s always been a one night affair, not 3 days / 2 nights.

In and out of the CCH via ambulance in 90 minutes? I somehow doubt that. The shortest time frame I’ve experienced, either by walk-in or ambulance, in the emergency ward was 5 hours.

So not that I am your biggest supporter…because I am not…however…unlike the outspoken masses I have not belittled you in any way shape or form. BUT this article is completely unnecessary. Do you think they are in last place because the owner is running for council? Is he also required to score the goals and sharpen the skates? Does insulting the standings of a TEAM, because you may or may not agree with the politics of the team owner, make your point any more valid? The answer is a resounding NO! In writing this bullshit Jamie…you are adding fuel to… Read more »

Is there a story about the CCH that I missed?

“Thank you for viewing and posting to Cornwall’s most read newspaper!” You are a farce. People don’t come here to get legitimate news. People come here for the same reason people read tabloids, and national enquirer type “news”.. You are going to crash and burn in your “running” for mayor, and I can’t wait to see it, and who you lay blame to.. maybe the seaway news, the freeholder??? Perhaps your so called bullies? Your on going criminal investigation? Cry me a river, or better yet, float down the St. Lawrence river to another town, and quit pestering our great… Read more »

Jamie, when someone writes “Your an asshat” rather than “You’re an asshat”, you can only assume that the writer is an asshat. No?

I feel about 80 percent of the people in Cornwall really do not want to hear or beleive the truth.Why would these people not want to believe the truth on what goes on in the city of Cornwall?Why wouldn,t they standup and answer to what is being said about them?Does the truth really hurt that bad?

You clearly missed my point….what does his politics and your like/dislike for it have ANYTHING to do with the hockey team….you trashed the team….then implied it must have something to do with the owner…now you might want to google the definition of team….team owner???politics???I don’t know???maybe all of them???your remarks were uncalled for???if your a journalist???then report the news???items of interest???death notices???anything but this. This was just plain and simple uncalled for it….and I hope…as a human being…somewhere deep down inside…you know it.

Stacey….look up gonzo journalism. That’s what Jamie does and does very well. It’s not your typical journalism.

Im a bit confused, Jamie, did you create those stats in your article? As you have been accused you trashed the team..so you must of falsified something to make them look bad. Or did the team themselves create the stats..? because if so, they have seemingly trashed themselves. Which only makes you guilty of stating the facts…so which one is it?

If it weren’t for this electronic “rag”, nobody in Cornwall would know about the cruelty of our city’s officials (elected and otherwise), or the corruption, waste and cultured ignorance that makes Cornwall a “no-go zone” for the rest of the country… and I doubt that any other media outlet would allow comments against it the way CFN does.

@Marc.Your feelings are not without merit, trust your gut so to speak. From what I have read over the years it is not when it comes to the electorate they aren’t interested in the truth, it is mre that they simply are not interested at all. Up to 90% of the general population are more interested in sports, reality tv, surfing the internet, etc, etc. That leaves the balance to make an informed decision which can easily be erased at the voting booths by people who merely vote on name recognition or base their vote on the one article that… Read more »
