  1. I already knew about those jobs coming to new haven. But did Hartford make the finalist list for the HQ2? Cause that would be part of the great plan for the whalers to return in the **ture Amazon Arena in Hartford!
  2. Any update on Amazon recently? Asking for a friend.
  3. Sounds good just let me know.
  4. Just left a comment on the youtube vid. If you are looking for people to interview in the **ture I'd love to share my story of the whalers and post whalers hockey (had previously made a video on it a little on my page too)
  5. Give malloy 3 months he will find a way to force Atena to move their HQ
  6. The optics of a **ller house in uniondale would be a better pr look for the NHL. Now i get the biggest hurdles are the facilities under the stands for players and club options for popular owners. But you could easily flex in islander games on the NBC sunday games post football and it would be a great product until belmont opens. I also hope and pray that the islanders do have fair season ticket pricing at belmont otherwise it will be Little Caesars arena 2.0 as we have seen in Detroit. They can raise the prices for suites and gl***** seats. But those uppers and lower level seats need to be priced fairly for the hard working fans.
  7. The attendance was 5,000 for the entire game. Even during the game the upper ends behind the basket were empty. The team has not been good for years. However the students were still walking a quarter mile from dorms to fill up gampel at higher rates than this past year. While the XL has fairly empty upper decks the scrub games are still getting larger crowds in Hartford than the XL. I saw the men play stony brook this year which was worse than UCF and it was midweek like the UCF game. But more people were at that game than this in conference UCF game.
  8. So tonight the Uconn Men's Basketball team only got 5,000 people to show up on the on campus arena. Those numbers are pathetic to be a game played on campus. A few photos also were on the emptyseats twitter page showing practically nbody being there. Imagine if uconn hockey went back to storrs and this would be the same fate. The same game tonight being moved to hartford easily have gotten 5,000 people and maybe a 2 to 3K more just because of the families that have easier access to get downtown versus having to drive all the way out to Storrs. Sure it's UCF and wouldn't be a sellout but more people would have showed up. It appears the fair weather college campus fans are a much more inconsistent base than the fair weather adult/family base that would travel to xl games downtown. This is why uconn needs to investing in improving the XL center and not consider building a new on campus arena.
  9. That's why i never bought the idea that the NHL and the islanders would consider the XL over N*****au. Both the coliseum and XL have their flaws. But the Coliseum got a better makeover than the XL and is still at the heart of the fanbase. Also another thing nobody is talking about is the fact the XL Broadcast Camera setup is stuck in the 1980s where the bench side of the rink is on the bottom instead of the top.
  10. So the whalers had about 1,000 more people when the Islanders were self destructing their entire team in the 90s and had no success (just like the whalers). The Long Island Market is much bigger than the greater Hartford market hands down. Add to the fact that the Islanders have a small slip of fans in southern CT and points east of long island that also like the mets. Also the tv revenue from the islanders was much bigger than what the whalers ever could get from a CT deal. One of the reasons the islanders will never leave the nyc market and while the whalers are gone.
  11. Been to over 80 hockey games at the XL (and played a **ll youth hockey game twice there). I have also been to about 10 NHL games on long island. For hockey/concerts Na ss au has much better views and much better parking. Matter of fact going to flyers/isles games from 2011 to 2015 parking was usually around $7 to 10 as well. The upper bowl at the Coliseum has much better views than the XL's upper bowl. And any seat in the lower and mid tiers at the Coliseum have better sight lines than the narrow angled lower bowl XLC seats that have a weird angle. Last year i went to a concert at the coliseum and their bathrooms are better set up than the XL and maybe they have 1 or 2 less bathrooms but it's the same. There is less traffic at the XL because people are leaving the state and most events are getting a few thousand people. N*****au has more traffic because they have more people and a larger fanbase in a bigger TV Market. Also the Coliseum has a better traffic flow and more people out there than any XLC event. And the gates at the XL are more crowded than N*****au.
  12. I am still looking for this new resturant hahaha. What is the name of it again and how many square feet is it? If the answer is 2 square feet and chick fill a express stand that doesn't count.
  13. Right i respect the fact that they are being true to their beliefs and sacrificing millions of dollars of revenue a year to practice what they literally preach on the religious front. And the one time they have served on a Sunday was a few weeks ago when Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport lost power and they gave out free food to those stranded p*****engers.
  14. No even at the Falcons new Venue (Mercedes Benz Stadium) they are closed for sundays). They are sticking to their principles of being closed even in arena locations.
