Sam's got a new title as he has been promoted to the President of Business Operations for the Rhinos.

I know some people are wondering what this means for Matthew Ford who is the Rhinos President and General Manager, but I have yet to hear anything changing on that side of the Rhinos business.

And I'll echo Devo's take on the news. 

Sam has busted his hump for the Rhinos and this promotion was earned through hard work and Sam's love of soccer, Rochester,  and the Rhinos.

Match day discussion

Rob Clark has posted on Rochester Sports and Rhinos is asking what fans think about Wednesday evening and Saturday afternoon games.

Personally, I think the weather will be too hot on most Saturday afternoons for the quality of play to be all that great. Especially in a league that doesn't play once a week.

Wednesday evenings migth be OK as long as it's after school is done and there aren't any major youth or adult leagues playing on Wednesday nights.
