Flames Suited men behind the Flames Bench

Not sure if this question relates to flames or not… plus for some reason I can’t post on the flames forum anyways haha

Does anyone know who those 5 suited guys are behind the flames bench??? They are there for basically every game!

Funny story I was in the army with one of the Flames team doctors, (Dr Brett) I don't think he works for them anymore.


He didn't like my humour, it cost me $750.

back in the Corral days my dad was the Flames 'substitute dentist' and got tickets a few times when his friend couldn't make it- don't think he ever got called into action


I remember as a kid for some reason for awhile he seemed to have quite a few of the Stampede wrestlers come through his practice

Thanks for the response guys! I think it's funny that the medical staff NEEDS to be watching live rather than just watching on TV... They take up like 6 seats plus the covered rows behind them I feel like that's quite a bit of optimal seating that the flames are losing ticket sales on, no?

I believe its covid related, no? They've never spaced out that many people from the tunnel in the past.

Here I thought they were Murray Edwards henchmen. Don’t all billionaires have henchmen?

2PPCLI was in Hunter Liggett training area before going overseas.

We got up early to force march to training area for the day.

Got to training area and stood around in rains of biblical proportions for 8hrs waiting for training to start, it never started.

Force march back to bivouac.

Get told to stand around in the rain more b/c the CO was coming round to see us.

CO asks young Cpl UCB his thoughts on the days training.

Cpl UCB proceed to give the CO a 10 minute cuss filled account of his day and how it was one of the biggest waste of times he had encountered in the his military career.

CO walks away, Coy CSM walks by and asks for me to "hang back after dismissal".

CSM sends me to my OC, (Dr. Brett, I was a combat medic) to chat.

Dr. Brett charges the hell out of me.

#### happens.

It is Covid related. There is some seats covered off on the visitors side as well.
The home side both has a whole bunch of seats blocked off for medical staff, and a few seats covered.
