There is more to this than meets the eye. I am discouraged by the lack of investigative reporting.

This Team came to Jamestown through questionable circumstances, never fully became part of the community, and now are going out with a whisper.

This situation was predicted when they first announced their arrival and yet very little is being said.

Please get more facts, set up and post a time line of events (including the teams issues in other communities).

The Ice Arena has lost some major tenants in the last year, what is going on?

Come on Post Journal, we count on you for the real story. It's okay to point fingers if the finger pointing is based in facts!

So sad however they never had the full support of the community. The Ironmen should have been involved in more area events and such, they expected us to just come to them. Look at the Jammers, they are everywhere, they invite people to free game nights and are involved with the entire Chaut. Co area. I hope the Ironmen do come back but they need to step up their efforts in attracting us locals to the games.

If professional and/or Semi-Pro sports is going to exist in our small communities, The Media including this paper need to cover it! Frankly, I didn't know anything about this hockey team until they started getting close to being in the playoffs.

Learn from this. Start now covering the NYPENN league and Jammers. Tell us about the other teams in the league and who the future stars are across these leagues.

Wake up PJ and do some real reporting. This is a huge scam and you need to tell the public the facts about owed money

Why doesn't the Post Journal report how the Ironmen owe the arena in excess of $60,000? Plain and simple, Yamada is a scam. Just ask the people in the previous town.

This team have been for sale since Feb. You cant wait until the last min. to try and save any team. All the articles that I have read on American Junior Hockey , dont match up with all the smoke you are saying. They say , Kenji loves hockey , BULL , to him its a business,, PERIOD. Sorry to see the go.
