    Seattle wins Arizona gets in further jeopardy

    There aren't any investors. If there were then they would have invested in the XL Center when the Governor and Mayor asked for investors to help pay for the upgrades to the XL Center. One investor did come forward, but they were only willing to put up about a million dollars. There was a company willing to "buy" the XL Center, but they'd only do that with the promise that the state would buy the building back after they remodeled the entire building. We'd have to pay them rent to use the building while they owned it and we'd have to pay them all of the costs of the remodeling and upgrades, with interest.

    Lowest attended hockey game in Hartford History

    The Wolf Pack prove that every game since they announce the tickets that are scanned into the arena. They had to do that after Baldwin admitted to messing with the numbers by flooding the market with unused free tickets and then adding another 12% to that number to make it look like the Whale was actually doing something. The reality was that they were only getting between 1500 to 2000 a game, but they were announcing that they were getting over 3000, and sometimes even 4500 a night. I don't need to prove that because Junior admitted to it on here, on Facebook, and to the Courant.

    "400" is the number of tickets that UConn gives away as "comped" ticket. Those are not Season Tickets. Illiterate.

    How are you in my head when I was responding to Evo? You really need to get over yourself. You're not that important, and you also don't know how to read at all. UConn only has 1795 STH, I posted the proof of that, and that means they've lost almost 1200 STH in just 4 years. It's no wonder they want to move half of their games to an arena on campus that only holds 2500 seats. As it is now they're really only averaging around 2100 a game when you go by tickets scanned, not distributed. The Wolf Pack are averaging close to 3100 tickets scanned. So, if they only have 200 STH like you say, then they're selling almost 2800 tickets to every single game. That more than UConn has guaranteed with their season tickets. That's even more than UConn's new arena can hold, and the Wolf Pack are selling that many for all of their games. UConn isn't even selling that much for their games and have to comp 400just to have more than 2000 people in the building.

    You can't because it's a lie. UConn doesn't have 3000 STHs, they don't even have 2000. The Courant even reported about how they don't have that many Season Ticket Holders. So, "stop lying you fraud" to take a quote from someone else. UConn is losing fans and STHs, so it doesn't make sense for them to play all of their games in an 8000 seat arena, especially if only about 2000 people are going to games. Also, I'm not Biggie. I don't know how many times I have to tell you a Mark that. I don't even know who the **** that guy is but you two have some weird obsession with him that you need to get over.

    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.

    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.
  8. TrueHartfordHockeyFan

    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.

    "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.

    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.

    Wolf Pack open season in front of standard 6k

    UConn couldn't even get more than 4000 people with tons of freebies, buy one get one tickets, and discounted tickets. That's just sad and just shows why they're moving half of their games back to Storrs in a few years.

    3991 for UConn home opener

    They didn't "open up" any seats. Hockey East only allows UConn to sell 8809 tickets, and that game had around 7300. What I am surprised about is that they only got 3991 even with them giving kids under 12 free tickets. Also, what I think is weird is that if you bought tickets to the home opener then you also got a ticket to the game on Sa****ay, but that game only had 3708. I also think it's sad that no one went to that game as well. It definitely didn't look like there was anywhere near that many people there either.

    This is 4000 people? Looks more like 400.
  16. "The Huskies will continue to play a majority of their games at the XL Center, according to a team spokesperson, but the new arena will allow for roughly six to seven games to be played on campus. The new arena will also help UConn avoid scheduling conflicts with other bookings at the XL Center." http://www.courant.com/sports/hockey/hc-sp-uconn-approves-plans-for-new-hockey-arena-20180926-story.html I thought you all said that I was lying and that UConn would never build a new arena in Storrs. Well, you were wrong yet again. I guess you should go talk to your "sources" and see why they were lying to you about what was really going on.

    New on -campus approved for UConn

    Funny that the Courant says that when UConn says that they will be splitting the schedule between the two arenas. They said that they will be playing 6 or 7 games on campus, that's about half of the schedule depending on how many neutral site games they play. Saying that UConn will "primarily use the XL Center" as a way to make it sound like the XL Center will still hold like 10 or more games is just lying to people. The new arena can also be expanded to hold 3,500 so they can play more games on campus. http://dailycampus.com/stories/2018/9/26/uconn-takes-first-steps-toward-new-on-campus-ice-hockey-arena

    So, "Jeremiah has been a member for 4 or 5 years." The you said, "Jeremiah has been a member for 3 years." Now you're saying it's only been about a year or two since he was a member. For someone who is supposed to be in charge of membership, it sure looks like you have no clue what you're talking about. If you can't even get this right then why should we believe you on anything else that you've said about who or even what is or isn't a member? I wouldn't be surprised if you have Pucky listed as member or maybe even someone's pet just to make it look like the club isn't the joke that it actually has become.

    It's going to be more than just "scrub games". UConn has stated that they will be playing more than half of their games on campus. That means they would be playing at least 4 to 5 Hockey East games in their new arena.

    You are such a liar. I know for a fact he was at a meeting recently, and that he and his entire family are still members. He was even marching with the Club at last year's St Patrick's Day Parade, and in years before that. There is even pictures proving that on the Club's Facebook page. It's just sad that you have to lie about this stuff, and it's sadder that it's so easy to prove that you are a lair and a fraud. It's just funny how I can backup all of my posts, but the person who is in the Club and calling others a fraud can't even backup one of his comments.
  21. To bad that looks like it's not going to happen. I am interested to see what Fastpitch Nation is doing in Windsor though. They're building a complex with 11 fields and it looks like they're expecting more than 35,000 people to visit the new ballpark in its first year of operation. That will include more than 1,350 teams competing in more than 3,200 games.
  22. Yeah, it's a good thing CVS bought Aetna and decided to keep them here instead of moving them to New York or even to CVS's HQ in Rhode Island. Still more needs to be done to bring companies into Hartford, and the rest of the state. We also need to find ways to bring more money into the state, and to make sure that when we do that money goes to the things it's supposed to.

    Really, "Jeremiah hasn't been a member of the club for several years now." That's interesting considering he still goes to meetings and Joanne says he's still a "proud member of the Booster Club". I'm starting to think the insults you throw around at other people are just the things that you are like a fraud, a liar, redundant, and no one cares about you.

    Nobody cares about you and you seriously need to get over this obsession with Biggie. I hope to God that he never has to see this crap because, honestly, you think about him way to much. It's disturbing that he seems to be the only thing you can ever think of.
