Comment: Hello, because your site covers the Hornets history when they were the New York Stars, I wanted to let you know that I recently obtained in a lot of reel-to-reel tape recordings, the complete WMCA Radio broadcast of the first New York Stars home game in July 1974 (their spectacular second-half collapse to Birmingham). If you are interested in a copy to utilize for your site, please get in touch with me.

Comment: I'm glad I found this site. It sure brings back great memories. I was there for the first game against Memphis I believe. It was really an electric atmosphere. Who knew 25,000 people could get so loud?

Comment: I was a cheerleader for the Charlotte Hornets WFL
along with my sisters Linda and Karen Bratton. I still have my little cheerleading uniform. There was only 2 little cheerleaders we were about 7 or 8yrs old. My sisters were much older. It was so much fun cheerleading for a semi pro football team. I remember the tryouts and practices @ freedom park. Danny Whyte lived around the block from us. I also remember Football player "Super Net" trying to date my sister (hilarious). She just did not care for him at all. Great memories back then. Wow, I'm 47yrs old now n my sisters are in there late 50s..Linda's a judge and Karen owns her on business as do I too. Great seeing this site it would be great
to see pics of the cheerleaders.

Comment: Our dad, Bob Lambert, was the equipment manager. He passed away in 2001. He loved the WFL and kept a lot of memorabilia around the house. He told us plenty of stories that is for sure.

Comment: Hi WFL fans and teammates. This is your 1974-75 captain of the Charlotte Hornets and New York Stars football team. I am writing to say I hope we can get together soon and celebrate our commeraderie of these two fine football teams. I would like to say hi to Coach Babe Parelli of the New York Stars and Coach Bob Gibson of the Charlotte Hornets football teams. I played with some very memorable and outstanding athletes on these two teams. I would have been at the 2005 reunion, but I had health problems that required a couple of transplants and my doctors felt it was too soon to travel. I am doing fine now. I have a lot of great memories playing with these two teams and I would go into battle with any of these great teammates. God bless you all. Ray Parson 85/83

Comment: I was a cheerleader for both years - and still have both uniforms. ( wish they still fit)I pulled one out last week for one of my students to wear for Retro Sports Day as part of our homecoming week at PHS. I was surprised ( pleasantly) when my AD told me about this website..... What wonderful memories this brings back. My Dad used to sit in the press box during the games and run off the stats for all the reporters up there on an old duplicator.
:-) I will have to dig out my old stuff and see what else I have stashed away.

It has been a while since I communicated back with your site. I felt compelled, after reading so many logins by many of my teamates, to log back in and share some thoughts!
First, Rachel (Woodcock), I have not had the chance to meet you, but I can only imagine that you are one beautiful lady with a heart overflowing with love for everyone...just as your father! I could talk for hours with you about your dad. What a great guy and a compliment to all our other characters on our team. We were blessed to have had the chance to know and play with him! P.S. that love for everyone disappeared when the whistle blew and the game started!! Competitive!!
On another note, great to see and hear from Sonny and Steve!! As a former wide receiver we had many practice battles against each other. We made each other better. Has anyone been in touch with Ike Thomas? I was under the tutleage of George Sauer(Jets/Namath/Super Bowl) and Al Young-Steelers. Two great receivers. Additionally, I can remember watching game film from the previous games with Ray Parsons (TE) and counting the number of DB's we knocked off their feet downfield.
I have to mention Greg Lens passing recently. Heaven is a better place and laughing loudly with his addition!! There was and only will be one "Lukie"! Lastly, as we all have stated many times, the bond that develops from sharing training camps, to winning and losing and sharing the highs and the lows, are somethings that will stay with us for all our lives! I tuly have been blessed to have had the opportunity to share some time with all of these characters!! God Bless All of You!! Take Care Kap
