Thomas on Falcons: ‘It was as poorly run as you can run it.’

Coach Matt Thomas, whose Stockton Thunder host the Ontario Reign on Sunday, gave some insights to NHL.com today about why his former team, the Fresno Falcons, folded operations on Dec. 22, 2008.

“I think it was a lack of marketing in Fresno … a lack of sales staff,” Thomas said. “We didn’t have offices. Everyone had to work from home. It was as poorly run as you can run it. It was real frustrating. Even in Atlantic City when we knew we were done, it was still professional. We had an office, people worked and there were expectations. People weren’t held accountable in Fresno. There was no office environment.”
