  1. It's a nice idea but not realistic at all
  2. It's just a whalers license plate. I wouldn't read to much into it.
  3. How do you know they were being dropped off by friends or family. Those could be Uber or Lyft drivers. Just because you don't use something doesn't mean that others don't.
  4. I hope everyone had a happy thanksgiving today
  5. I don't know. I spotted a couple empty seats in those pictures so it must be true.
  6. This idiotic back and forth is getting tiresome and pathetic
  7. Hope it works out for them.
  8. When the Tampa Bay Rays get close to the end of their insane lease with Tropicana Field, and if they have no plan for a new stadium planed out, then this article might have the slightest bit of relevance. But still, the chances of a MLB team moving to Hartford are to far remote to even consider. But it's a long way out before the Rays lease expires.
  9. Well I guess either league would be a very realistic goal. Hope**lly if a team from Hartford gets into one it's a league that won't be on the verge of folding.
  10. After taking a look at the number of teams that are not returning to the NASL next season I think you might be right. Looks like more and more are jumping ship to the USL
  11. The USL is technically because it's affiliated with the MLS, basically it's minor league. The NASL is independent from the MLS, but it's considered to be at the same level as the USL. Either the USL or NASL would be good fits for Hartford, but I think the NASL, being a league with fewer teams overall would be more likely to grant membership to Hartford. That's just my opinion on the subject.
  12. Maybe they're doing it just for the heck of it.
  13. Ah, this old topic again. I think I remember something like this being mentioned about five or six years ago. Yeah, fat chance of this ever happening. Montreal has a better chance of getting the Expos back than Hartford has of getting a MLB team here. So what's next, the English Premier League going to put a team in Hartford?
  14. You can tell it's the old New Haven Coliseum by the concrete columns in the corners. But as for an MLS team coming here it's doubt**l, what with the Revolution, NYCFC, and even the New York Red Bulls in the area. I also can't imagine that the league itself would want to bring another team into an already saturated market. The best that Hartford could hope for in the way of professional soccer might be the North American Soccer League. That would be the next step down from the MLS on the American soccer pyramid.
  15. They're losing dozens and dozens of fans. Oh my.
  16. At this point i don't think the NHL would be picky about the Hurricanes moving anywhere.
  17. If Amazon chose to move to Hartford that would be great. But I'm not holding my breath.
  18. It will be interesting to see how this all develops. Could this be a new home for the Coyotes?
  19. It's just a minor drop off between four games. Like Evo said, if it was something comparable to Carolina there might be something there, but at the moment it's to early to tell.
  20. I don't see where the money for any of this is going to come from
  21. Any particular moments during his time as Whalers broadcaster that stand out more than others? Since the Whalers have left does he see the expansion of teams into southern markets as having been good for the league or possibly bad? And in his opinion if another team were to come to Hartford would the people of the state support them?
  22. This is nothing unusual for teams and other sporting venues in general. MLB teams have been building smaller capacity stadiums for years. Where a team once played in a 50,000 seat stadium the new stadium may seat 5,000 or more less. Auto racing has been seeing the same thing. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has removed several thousand of their permanent seating due to dwindling crowds. The fact that this is now happening to arena's is not surprising at all.
  23. My mistake. I misread and thought you were referring to just the womans team. Those numbers make more sense now
  24. Those numbers must be combined for both the men and women's teams. The season is roughly 33 games I think, and there are usually about 16 or 17 home games per season. Going by those numbers that would mean the women played their entire home schedule in Hartford and then some during those years.
  25. This makes me think of Ray Finkle in Ace Venture. Laces out!!!!
