Just got word Campbell is offically gone. Not that this surprises anyone I'm sure...


Also, anyone ever look at the Front Office section on tbl.com? Has all (hopefully) the owners on there and little bios.

I've never met him but he had a passion for the team and seemed to love the area. He was someone I hoped would stay on but obviously that wasn't going to happen with the clean sweep.

I used to watch him sit in his box with his back to the rink watching Pistons games on TV.

I always figured that he had a job waiting with Palace Sports

Believe he was always Palace Sports' employee.

Apparently he was a big part of keeping the Forum always booked with events. Hopefully whoever replaces him keeps it up, unless it's not as big of a deal to OK Hockey. Heck maybe the ice quality would improve with a little less use, heh..

Well the story I'm now getting from my personal "lightning insider" is that he's out of his office, and out of the building, and will be kept on as a consultant. He'll be working from his home apparently. Maybe they'll keep him on for just that, booking and working the events which is a big money maker for them also.

Didn't Barrie take the role as team President and OK took the role of CEO?

Hoek, it was not hard for him to book the IP. It had been reported when PS&E took over that they were going to use there leverage of venues they owned to book their acts. Seems many acts wanted to play Auburn Hills. However in order to get in Auburn Hills some also had to book Knob Hill. PS&E stated that they were just going to add the IP to the mix, which they did.

Gesh, took them long enough.

I'll thank my "friend with benefits." hehee!
I feel lucky having a good friend working their for the F.O. And she got a promotion! Now they actually have her listed on the TBL website so that is pretty cool and exciting for her! I live vicariously through her. I told her when I retire (from navy) she has to help me get a job there as a seat usher so I can watch all the games!

Funny though some times I can't tell if she's screwing with me or is for real; like the Gratton resigning she told me that a couple days before hand but I figured she was kidding because she was (& still is) in love with the man in highschool.
