    The one you started drifted onto way more worrying matters. I figured it was worth putting this where we could find it easily.

    The RailHawks sent out an email inviting fans to meet the team, including new team captain Brad Rusin.

    Yup. Quite likely we'll have several new names to add to the "confirmed" list on Wednesday evening.

    Since Traffic owns the majority of the team, and the players are all signing new contracts... does anyone know if the contracts are with the Railhawks as a team, or with Traffic as a business? The difference, from my perspective I guess, would be that the players' contracts could survive the loss of a league... but, on the other hand, they might end up going out on loans or taking other moves that they don't expect?

    Just got an email letting me know that Brian Farber was going to be Max's U10 coach for the Spring campaign. I think we can assume he isn't moving to the Triangle just to coach U10 soccer...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Farber

    Last season, Josh Gardner was Max's coach. Connecting a few dots...

    Incidentally, check out Farber's goal at the 1min 17sec mark of this video

    I am surprised Kupono did not get the armband. A perennial fan favorite and an original to boot. Such a great player.

    That being said, I could not be more excited to see Brad as captain. He was a friggin' rock for us last season. So composed on the ball.

    Another understated player is Floyd Franks. Very nuanced and technical. I am so glad he is back.

    What is the word on Richardson? Seems like we are a bit thin at the moment at the forward position.

    Independent Weekly also has Rennie confirming that RailHawks have signed Chris Nurse and Brian Farber, and have Etienne Barbara returning.

    Chatting with Brad this evening, he mentioned Etienne also. He also said probably Gregory Richardson.
