Battle Wings should be improved

Every year about this time, we start thinking that the Battle Wings are going to have a breakout season. But after five years of thinking that, we're still waiting for that special season when they contend for an af2 playoff berth.

Who knows what will happen on Saturday when the Wings play host to Central Valley. With so many new players and a new coach, they could be a lot better or a lot worse (if that's possible) than last year's 3-13 club.

But it appears that Wings owner Dan Newman made a good hire in John Fourcade, due to his experience with the arena game. He certainly should know what he's doing in putting a team together. Just give the fans something to hang their hats on, coach, and don't let the team get eliminated from playoff contention by mid-season.

With three homes games in their first four, and playing at home every other game until the final two weeks of the season, the schedule is certainly favorable. We'll see, beginning on Saturday, if that translates into victories.
