    Lowest attended hockey game in Hartford History

    What are you talking about? I never said anything about Baldwin bring the only person to "tinker with attendance"? I haven't been on the board for that long. Baldwin did giveaway a ton of tickets, probably more than most, but all team's do it. I think what made people mad back then was that even with all of the free tickets, he thought more people should have been at games and more people should have been throwing money at him to bring back the Whalers. His son even blamed the fans for a lot of their problems, even though they were the ones wasting money left and right. Yes, they were because "the current on campus rink does not fit Hockey East standards". They did relax it a little for UConn because they will be playing about half of their games in Hartford but they had to build our at least upgrade Frietas to fit within the guidelines Hockey East game them. If they don't have to build our upgrade Frietas then why are they wasting almost $50 million on doing just that? They could be using that money for more important updates and upgrades to the campus and other facilities, but instead they're going to spend that money on something that they don't need at all. You can call me a lair, but you need to stop lying to yourself. A state college doesn't spend money on things they don't need, especially not $50 million on an arena when they already have two that they can use.
  3. And it's strange, because you and the rest of the Packrats told us for years that the ONLY person that EVER tinkered with their attendance numbers was Howard Baldwin... I do believe we tried to tell you...and as usual...you don't listen. Still a liar. Still a fraud.
  4. God you're stupid. Do you even read what I post? The article clearly says UConn wasn't getting kicked out of the conference no matter what, and your response is "Yes, they were because if they didn't have an arena that fit the conference's requirements then they would be in violation of the rules and be ejected." Your brain must be worse than mush. Seriously.

    What happened to there being over 3000 season ticket holders? You and Evo always bragged about that being such a big deal, and now that number had been cut in half.

    Yes, they were because if they didn't have an arena that fit the conference's requirements then they would be in violation of the rules and be ejected. They've already had a few extensions as it is, so they had to do this or else.

    So, it looks like when UConn announces that over 3000 people show up to games in reality it's closer to 1700.
  9. https://www.courant.com/sports/college/hc-sp-uconn-hockey-arena-column-20181114-story.html Using this season as an example, Tuesday’s game against Brown would have been on campus. RPI on a Wednesday? Campus. Sacred Heart on a Tuesday? Campus. Throw in another campus game or two — say, Maine on an October Friday night, for which announced attendance was 3,991 but actual attendance was 2,534 — and you have most of a Storrs schedule set. When the basketball teams sell out on-campus games, does that mean UConn screwed up by not building Gampel Pavilion to 15,000? Hockey East previously required its members to have on-campus facilities of no fewer than 4,000 seats, but relaxed those standards at UConn’s request. The Huskies weren’t going to be shown the door by the conference no matter what.
  10. Now then. It's no secret that the number of tickets distributed (notice they don't say "sold) and the number of scanned tickets is different. It's that way for every team, in every sport, regardless of owner, regardless of who is the promoter of the product. In other words...what we've been trying to tell the Packrats for years is true. Thanks again for playing.
  11. I also said it didn't make a difference to me either way. You really should read the entire post instead of just one line of it.

  13. I should leave because you say so? Nope.
  14. Interesting article today in the Courant that discusses difference between "Tickets Distributed" and "Tickets Scanned", and about the on-campus arena. https://www.courant.com/sports/hockey/hc-sp-uconn-hockey-attendance-turnstile-20181106-story.html "UConn officials say they plan to play lower-profile games at a newly-built arena — the type of contests that tend to draw fewer than 3,000 fans, not the type that sometimes draw more than 6,000. Most games, including the biggest match-ups, will continue to take place at the XL Center"
  15. If you don't like what we post, leave. Makes no difference to me either way. Now then...before Fraudie gets his panties in a bunch again, I'll say it before he has a chance. There is absolutely, positively no chance there was 3220 at the UConn/Brown game on Tuesday night. 2500 tops.
  16. All this bickering over some college hockey team that no one gave two ****s about before they started playing at the XLC. smh
  17. I love it. "roughly 6 to 7 games" that doesn't mean they'll definitely play that many. Nobody, not even UConn, knows exactly how many games they're going to play on campus. The arena is still 2 3/4 seasons away. A lot can change in that time frame. Oh, and there is nothing in the second article that says anything about getting kicked out of the conference. It's a requirement that they have an arena on-campus, yes. But, there is no real threat to get kicked out of the league. If there was, the arena would have been done long before now. Still a fraud? Check. Still a liar? Check.

    "Once the new arena is completed, the team will play 6-7 games per year in Storrs." - https://www.courant.com/sports/hockey/hc-sp-uconn-approves-plans-for-new-hockey-arena-20180926-story.html "Hockey East conference requires an on-campus arena" - https://www.courant.com/sports/hockey/hc-sp-uconn-board-of-trustees-committees-discuss-financial-plan-for-ice-hockey-arena-20181029-story.html You were saying? I love being called a fraud when I have actual sources to back up what I post. What do you have? That's right, absolutely nothing.
  20. "This is unfortunate news. Isn't Quenneville, Dineen, and Samuelsson the only reason the HWBC is going to a Hawks/Flyers game on November 10th?" Well, it's one of the reasons. Truth be told, the Flyers gave us a really, really good deal on tickets, and the club felt it couldn't pass up the opportunity to go. It's very unfortunate news...but I couldn't help think when I heard the news...the Blackhawks couldn't wait one more week??
  21. " Especially since they have to build the arena or they'll be kicked out of Hockey East. " Nobody said they were getting kicked out of Hockey East. Yet another Fraudie lie.
  22. "I know it's going to be that way because UConn has already said that they have to play at least 6 to 7 games in the new arena on campus" They have never said that, and you know it. Another Fraudie lie.
  23. This is unfortunate news.

    I don't see that much of a difference between your picture and this one. So, where are all of the "people that rolled in late"? A 2500 seat arena that can be expanded in the future is a great idea for UConn. Especially since they have to build the arena or they'll be kicked out of Hockey East. If they could keep playing at the XL Center forever then we wouldn't even be discussing anything about an arena on campus, but like I said before they have to build one, and soon.

    I know it's going to be that way because UConn has already said that they have to play at least 6 to 7 games in the new arena on campus. That's half the season. It has nothing to do with the "schedule crunch" and everything to do with the fact that Hockey East requires schools to have ricks on campus, and the XL Center isn't on a UConn campus. If it was then they wouldn't have to build an arena in the first place. Also, with the reduced sales that UConn has been dealing with, I bet they'd be happy to play on campus instead of renting out the XL Center for 14 games every year.
  26. It's embarrassing how bitter and salty you are over some minor league team.
