  1. Today
  2. uconn draws well in Hartford, so they will stay there.9pmce they ink the NHL after the renovations are approved uconn will sign on for there extended contract.add all this to dd park and people and business will flock to Hartford again
  3. 1) You should, it's very informative. 2) They have plans to expand, so they'll be able to play HE games there once they upgrade it. 3) The campus won't have students living there. So, once cl*****es are done, they'll go home. UConn has no plans to even buy housing in the area for students to live in Hartford. So, you'd have to hope that the 2000 kids would be willing to stay there. I'm sure some kids would be willing to get apartments in the area, but I don't know if they would be able to afford it without any student housing. Also, does that campus even count under HE's bylaws? 4) I doubt HE would soften for one school just because attendance is good. If that was the case then why is Holy Cross spending over $30 million to upgrade their arena on campus before they are able to join HE? UConn was given a p***** for a few years, but I doubt the rest of the schools would let UConn get a p***** for much longer. 5) We'll just have to wait and see but the way HE is I doubt that. They don't even let BU, BC, and Harvard play that many games at the Garden in Boston even though they know tons of people would go to those games.
  4. You two are so gay for each other.
  5. Sorry, I meant to say my rep from the Wolf Pack, not UConn.
  6. That makes sense mark so they won't know how to understand it..
  7. I dknt care what your IP address is, you post like him and you think you have all the awards lkke him.. and the more you post the more your true colors come out..
  8. "The way Evo was talking on his show, I don't think UConn cares if Frietas is to small. Honestly, they could leave, save money on not paying rent or busing students to Hartford and building their own HE. Kind of like what people on here have said about a NHL team moving here before the upgrades and just waiting until they have want they want. UConn has already put a ton of money into the campus in Storrs, and they're still talking about either upgrading or replacing Frietas. Also, UConn has to have an arena on-campus that can hold Hockey East games or be kicked out of the conference. They have plans to expand Frietas to hold around 3250 seats and it sounds like they're waiting to see what is done at the XL Center before they announce what they're going to do. At least that's the way the Courant made it sound in an article about the sports upgrades a few months ago." In order... 1) I don't watch Pete's show. 2) UConn HAS to care that Frietas is too small, HE has already informed there they can't play any regular season games there until it gets up to HE standards, that's why they play in Hartford to being with. 3) There is a downtown Hartford campus of UConn now, so the whole "busing students to the XL" thing...uh...doesn't really come into play anymore. 4) HE wanted them to build on campus...but that stance may have softened, especially considering the attendance numbers in Hartford. 5) They will eventually expand Frietas, but even if/when they do, the majority of HE games will still be in Hartford...why? More money, and UConn is all about making money.
  9. They have said multiple times it's me but does that actually mean it's me? Let's not forget these are the same clowns who were so adamant the Failers would have returned by now.
  10. Yesterday
  11. **nny, I could say the same about you and Jerry
  12. "I called my rep with UConn and he said that the Fan Zone is only for the Pack and that UConn will have seats there instead" My rep with UConn said they had no info about the Fan Zone as yet...either we have a different rep, or someone is getting bad info. Would you like to share who your rep at UConn is?
  13. The Fan Zone is going where there are fold away seats. So for UConn games there will be regular seats, but for Wolf Pack games there will be a special Fan Zone with food and drinks. Talk to Evo, he knows I'm not and I'm not getting into it with you. Good one, like we all haven't heard that lame joke before. A few of the guys on here like to use numbers to say how UConn is better than the Pack but I just don't see that. The Wolf Pack bring 170,000 people to Hartford every year. That's more than twice as many people that UConn Hockey, UConn Men's Basketball, and UConn Women's Basketball bring in by themselves.
  14. I'm sorry, but if you think Malloy is going to do anything when he's on his way out, you're crazy. Also, no one that I've talked to believes Malloy and the things he says. He changes his story all the time. He is the reason I'm worried about the money made from the Whalers plates actually going to CCMC. He has diverted **nds from other plates over the years to help pay for stuff he wants. It started under Rell and he said he would fix it. That was almost ten years ago and he's taken more money from these plates that was supposed to go to charity, and put it into the state's general **nd.
  15. So you are basing your information of family and friends when i am an actual 20 something that lives in this area and over half of my friends from high school and college don't live in the state when i met them in college in CT or grew up with them in CT. And how can you call anyone still living in this state anti hartford when they still live here? I support local teams here, pay taxes here, mentor kids from both the city and suburbs here and go to many concerts and festivals in Hartford. The reality is the best talent from out states great schools have no desire/can't afford to stay in Hartford or the state. That is why a **ture of having hockey here is in huge limbo. If i was 6 at the last whalers game and now at 26 half my friends (And many of their parents) are moving out of the state why would an investor consider moving a team here? The die hard fans that supported a losing team with p*****ion is getting older. Someone like me that only remembers games from the last year are almost 30 or a littler past 30. Many things have to change before our city is looked at positively and more appealing for someone to move a team here.
  16. All the Wolf Pack need now are some fans.
  17. And mr Bettman you are the least liked commish in all of sports, your stupidity spread beyond the NHL..
  18. Maybe Simone needs to take a stand and do something like Malloy is trying to do, but that's still not good enough..when the budget p*****es maybe we can have a different convo, but I can say there are worse areas that are getting it done so why can't Hartford..
  19. Your friends are a bunch of autistic cult members.
  20. I called my rep with UConn and he said that the Fan Zone is only for the Pack and that UConn will have seats there instead. He made it sound like Spectra came up with it as a "Wolf Pack Only" promoton. UConn wasn't part of any discussion involving the Fan Zone at all.
  21. The way Evo was talking on his show, I don't think UConn cares if Frietas is to small. Honestly, they could leave, save money on not paying rent or busing students to Hartford and building their own stadium. Kind of like what people on here have said about a NHL team moving here before the upgrades and just waiting until they have want they want. UConn has already put a ton of money into the campus in Storrs, and they're still talking about either upgrading or replacing Frietas. Also, UConn has to have an arena on-campus that can hold Hockey East games or be kicked out of the conference. They have plans to expand Frietas to hold around 3250 seats and it sounds like they're waiting to see what is done at the XL Center before they announce what they're going to do. At least that's the way the Courant made it sound in an article about the sports upgrades a few months ago.
  22. I care for Hartford and Hartford could be so much better if people with any power or money actually cared. The Park is great but there's nothing else there to be proud of or be happy about. We were supposed to have the park, restaurants, a Hard Rock, shops, and a grocery store. It's been two years and all we have is a park that costs almost twice what it was supposed to cost. Many big companies are leaving the city because their employees don't want to live in Hartford, or even drive in the city anymore. I'll defend what needs to be defended, but I can also see what's wrong or even stupid, and I'm not going to defend that.
  23. Heh. How are they going to prevent people from using it? I mean, seriously...use your brains, people.
  24. "Without the upgrades even being started UConn and the Wolf Pack could be out after this season. Don't believe me?" I believe the WolfPack could be out after this season. Not UConn. Why? Because they don't have anyplace else to go. Frietas is too small and not up to HE standards. Nice try.
