  1. Hartford Athletic soccer

    The Wolf Pack promotional schedule is coming out soon and there is talk that the Athletic are on it. It sounds like they're going to be holding a mini training camp for kids at the XL Center with the Wolf Pack. Kind of like what HCFC did last year. Also, the Wolf Pack and the Athletic are following each other on Twitter if that's any indication of how truth**l that rumor might be.
  2. What is going on? I thought that the new owner was going to be doing more things to promote the Whalers, not bury them. There has been no talk of a Whalers alternate or of them doing anything up here. Malloy even sent him a letter telling him how it would be great for them to do something up here, but nothing is being done. You know what is happening? The Bruins will be holding the Fan Fest in Hartford again this year. The will take over Hartford yet again about a month from today.
  3. Hartford Athletic soccer

    End up? It's pretty much a done deal.
  4. So, UConn is working on the plans to upgrade Freitas to either be UConn's new on-campus arena, or it will be the practice facility for UConn and they will build an arena on campus soon. Construction is planned to start next year on Freitas and possibly a on-campus arena.
  5. Hartford Athletic soccer

    Haven't heard anything about them playing Br***** Bonanza but I'm wondering how people are going to feel about their affiliation with the Revolution and Robert Kraft. I know a lot of people still hold a grudge against him because they blame him for the Whalers leaving Hartford.
  6. How stupid can you be? It wasn't their choice. MSG wanted to use it but the Baldwins ruined that for everyone thanks to them scamming everyone on the state out of millions of dollars. That's why no one wants anything to do with their BS anymore. It's honestly sad to see someone trying to defend that charlatan after all the damage he did. No one has even heard from him since his sad excuse of a "book release party" that no one went to and no one covered.
  7. I'm not "spinning" anything. They didn't own the Whale brand. They wanted to use it but weren't going to pay the person who owed them over a million dollars for it. You want to call someone a fraud then you should really be looking at Baldwin and not me. He's the one who ruined this for all of us by spending more than he had on getting people to support the cause. He's also the one who didn't pay how employees, or his bills. That includes money he owed to the state, the city, and to CPTV.
  8. The Courant talked about this back when Global was picked to run the XL Center back in 2013. WSE had a deal with MSG and AEG, and when Global was picked they went to the negotiating table with MSG about keeping the Whale brand in the building. Chris Lawrence even said that when they renewed their contact with MSG. He didn't say they were going to keep the Rangers AHL affiliate in Hartford, but he specifically said that the Whale would be in Hartford for three more years. If MSG wasn't going to keep the brand and just go back to the Pack then there's no way he'd say that. He just started working with MSG and he wouldn't want to piss them off like that. Also, he has said plenty of times that MSG was planning on keeping the Whale brand. Going back to the Wolf Pack had nothing to do with MSG. You have Baldwin to blame for that.
  9. Why would they pay anything to a bunch of crooks that owed them money? They did try to work out a deal where they would take the Whale brand as part of the money they were owed but the Baldwins wouldn't do it. They wanted cash because they needed to pay off their debts. That's why MSG had to go back to the Wolf Pack, or they could have changed the team to the Rangers like a few politicians wanted then to do. The Baldwins tried to do the same thing to the NWHL team by charging them to use the Whale logo, that's why they changed it right before the season started.
  10. They were "bottom feeding" under WSE, or did you forget about Junior admitting to screwing with the numbers and WSE being millions of dollars in debt and hoping for someone to bail them out?
  11. Now who is lying? They didn't own the Whale brand and would have had to pay the Baldwins to use it. There's no way they'd do that with all the money they owed them.
  12. No clue, but from what I've been hearing at games, it sounds like it's going to be the same guys as last year. Honestly, after all of the no shows at the event in February I wouldn't be surprised if less guys show up this year.
  13. The Whale brand had millions of dollars of debt attached to it and MSG didn't own it. So they had to change it back because there's no way they'd buy it from the Baldwins. Would you really buy something from someone who owes you a ton of money? That's why they had to go back to the Wolf Pack. If not, then we might have been stuck with the Hartford or even the Connecticut Rangers. I know your name is "idiotboy" but you must be able to see that the Wolf Pack was a better option.
  14. DDP Named Best Double A ballpark --- AGAIN

    Don't know what Mark is talking about. He's even admitted that he doesn't go to Goats games unless it's Whalers Weekend.
  15. No quotes needed for the only professional team to win a championship in the state. I love the Whalers but you guys act like children. No wonder no one ever takes Hartford seriously. Also, what more can the Pack do for you guys? They brought in the Baldwins, changed the name and colors to honor the Whalers, had special nights for the Whalers, their players, and the Howe family. What more did they need to do to get you to support Hartford Hockey?
  16. AHL Conference Realignment

    You do realize that if the Whalers ever made it far enough in the playoffs they'd have to play their games somewhere else because of the circus.
  17. Whaler T-shirt sighting on TV

    Well Ryan Preece is a Wolf Pack fan and you'd all know that if you went to games.
  18. Wolf Pack renew XLC agreement

    They're not done in Hartford. The contract keeps them in the building no matter who owns the building. Same thing applies if UConn signs their contract, which they still haven't done yet. This information is from the CRDA's website and meeting minutes.
  19. Yard Goats ticket sales jump 24%

    Never said that the Wolf Pack haven't had games with no one at them. Just saying that the Wolf Pack don't mess with their numbers as much as the Whale did and the Goats do.
  20. Yard Goats ticket sales jump 24%

    Yeah, these sure look like games with 4000 people in attendance. Honestly, they remind me of when the WSE was announcing that the Whale were getting 3000-4000 a game when in reality under 1000 people were showing up.
  21. Wolf Pack renew XLC agreement

    Still more actual people than the numbers the Whale posted. So, in reality it's not the second lowest attendance in Hartford Hockey History.
  22. Yard Goats ticket sales jump 24%

    Have you been to a game this year? Have you seen the pictures their fans, their employees, and even they have posted? I've been to a bunch of games and I seriously doubt there was more than 1000 people at most of them. There isn't a ton of places that you can't see from most of the stadium and the place is empty.
  23. Maine Mariners replace Greenvile Swamp Rabbits

    Which is pretty weird when you consider that their teams have been rivals for such a long time.
  24. Yard Goats ticket sales jump 24%

    That's complete BS and you know it. If you took the announced attendances and compared them to the actual attendance, then the Wolf Pack's numbers would be pretty close. The White Sox doing that is just sad, and minor league teams saying they sold out 42 games when they don't is just as bad. The Yard Goats have been having announced attendances of around 3800 when the place has only had about 500 people there. It's sad and it is only being made worse by the team ****ing and the weather being so cold. It's almost as bad as the Whale and the fake numbers they used to show how "great" they were doing.
  25. Maine Mariners replace Greenvile Swamp Rabbits

    That's interesting and I guess it shows that MSG and Spectra like working together, and want to be partners in minor league hockey. That's pretty different than what others have said about their "working relationship".
