The Blue Tongues Update – July 12, 2011

Gold Coast Blue Tongues

It was quite the weekend for our boys of summer.  On July 9, as the Gold Coast Blue Tongues completely destroyed the Sydney Ice Dogs by a score of 7-1.   Matt Amado had a stellar game with 2 goals and 4 assists.  Tobias Falk had a hat trick.  The Blue Tongues thoroughly dominate the the Ice Dogs.  It was a very important 3 points to the team.  But, just to show that poor league rulings can destroy teams ability to control their own destinies, we have the game of July 10.

The game on this day was cancelled due to unsafe ice conditions.  Fair enough, EXCEPT, the league decided that the Blue Tongues would forfeit the game, with the 3 points going to the Ice Dogs.  Again, possibly, fair enough, EXCEPT, the team is not responsible for the ice, the owners of the rink are responsible.  This has caused quite the furor as evidenced by the replies on the post the league made on their Facebook page.  We have been ripped off, and may lose a playoff spot because of this unjust decision.  Please make your voice heard and email the league at this address.

I also found this promo video for the team that I would like to share
