John Kass Speaks with Andrew Hauptman
Town Hall Meeting
Last night's town hall meeting with Fire brass at the Globe Pub covered topics from season ticket problems, media coverage, and the Fire academy to the inevitable question about designated players. The Fire is continuing to search for possible designated players but any speculation as to who they might be is premature. I tend to believe that the Fire will make a move if they feel the player is absolutely the right fit on and off the field. Kudos to Andrew Hauptman, Frank Klopas, Javier Leon, and Dave Greeley for making themselves available to anyone and everyone who attended.
This marks the debut of the Fire's new TV annoucing team of Dan Kelly and Chris Doran on Comcast SportsNet. I'm anxious to hear the reviews of the game call and post game coverage.
