It's obviously nobody well-known, since that would greatly affect the value.

this is a player's ring. he is very well known and does not want his name posted in conjunction with the sale. I may bid, but I am certain that I would be outbid by a big time maine jersey and ring collector who goes to all of the banquets with his two sons.

it is not Paul Kariya's ring.

Any news about Lomberg? It's been over a week since we've learned how much UMaine administrators have overreacted with their new policy of imposing cruel and unusual punishments for student code of conduct violations.

No, the Gerbe rule has not been imposed as of yet. Give it time.

The school denied his original punishment so I'm sure they'll deny if there is any change to it. They have made themselves look extremely foolish through this whole episode. I would think the semester he has already been suspended would be enough but who knows.

Anyone see Ryan ????Isn't this still in the Appeal Phase with his suspension still in effect...I would think while this is on going he would be sitting in a low profile mode. And with that said I can't see the University not standing firm in some type of Suspension,maybe reduced to a 1/2 season with Scholarship money taken away(imo).

Would he even be eligible for the Spring if he can't take any classes in the fall? I don't think he would be where he obviously didn't take any summer classes. I think the one semester he has been suspended(the summer) is more than enough as far as the school part of the punishment. I know Red offered to suspend him but given how the whole thing played out I can't see where he deserves more than five or six games.

This is slightly off topic but to answer your question, no, the university doesn't care about the fans. All they see is dollar signs. Went to umaine football opener Saturday. What a second class, rinky dink operation. First at the gate we were told our tickets had already been scanned and were no good. After a second person came over and rescanned them we were allowed in. We have a new 100 million dollar score board that shows crystal clear replays, except the people running the board didn't know how to use it and there were no replays of the 3 or 4 closest pivotal plays. It goes without saying that refs mic's didn't work. Went to the concession stand at 7:01. 1 stand, 4 lines, 8000 fans. Well done Maine athletics! Got my 2 hot chocolates at 7:28. That's 27 minutes.

I had the USCHO app on my iPhone, but can't find it in the droid play store. Any hints?

If he's not even allowed to take classes and practice in the fall, wouldn't that be detrimental to his conditioning and impact his game-readiness (if and when they allow him back in the spring) with not even being able to even practice with the team? It's all speculation otherwise until we hear confirmation whether or not his appeal has been successful or not, but since we haven't heard anything more in the last two weeks it looks increasingly doubtful that UMaine will have a change of heart and change its ruling. That "Fill the Steins Blog" article about the situation seems to be the view the University was hoping the fans would adopt, but it seems that most of the posts on the topic from this forum think UMaine has overreacted and has sent one of their better players packing to send a message that no future altercations by any player will be tolerated without expulsion from the University.

I can see suspending him from the hockey team but suspending from taking classes, thats even more ridiculous

If it were all about the money then there would be at least 1 more concession stand because right now they are losing money because people don't want to stand in line. I spent $15 at Wendy's after the game.

I was thinking the exact same thing. More than anything else they are just incompetent. They leave a bunch of money on the table with things like concessions while at the same time gouging people with ticket prices.

They don't want the expense of operating the additional concession stand.

I spent $15 at Wendy's after the game.They don't care about you or the others...even with just one concession stand they make there money and could care less if you get it in 2 minutes or 20.
