  1. Wolf Pack renew XLC agreement

    Frietas will be used for a couple of games per year...and the rest will be in Hartford.
  2. Wolf Pack renew XLC agreement

    The bonding part wasn't where the lie comes from. UConn has a contract with the CRDA to have 30 events per year at the XL Center, of which half of those are UConn hockey games. That's not fiction, that's fact. So...unless there is a new contract with UConn...your "2-3 games per year in Hartford" gets blown up in your so many of your stories do.
  3. The team that won the Stanley Cup in 1917 were called the Seattle Metropolitans. They were also playing the Canadiens in the 1919 Final when the Influenza Epidemic cancelled the remaining games of the series.
  4. Wolf Pack renew XLC agreement

    I agree with Evo. For an athletic program that is losing a lot of money, there is much more money to be made in Hartford over Storrs. It's really that simple. They can talk about upgrading Freitas to meet league standards, that's perfectly fine, but for the people (read: Fraudie) that think UConn is going to play "only 2-3 games a year in Hartford", that is simply idiotic to think that way. And, since the Pack have officially renewed for a minimum of 2 years and a max of 5, I think it's pretty safe to say UConn hockey is going to be in Hartford for that time frame as well. If not longer.

    "They just submitted a bonding plan that includes money for upgrades to their rink on campus to expand it to either 3500 or 4500 seats. If they go with the 4500 option then they will only be playing 2 or 3 games in Hartford." More lies from Fraudie.
  6. Wolf Pack renew XLC agreement

    Well, I was basing it on last year compared to this year. Last year -- WolfPack averaged 4238, T-Birds averaged 4664. Difference = 426 This year -- WolfPack average 4087, T-Birds average 4814. Difference = 727

    There is more than enough evidence to suggest that Hartford can support a team, regardless of level. But, the numbers the Pack draw, for the most part, are terrible. They're going to be outdrawn by Springfield for a 2nd straight year...and the margin seems to be getting wider.
  8. Wolf Pack renew XLC agreement

    Never used the word "marketed" in my last post. Fraudie, if you're going to criticize what I say, the least you can do is get what I say correct.
  9. Wolf Pack renew XLC agreement

    "That would mean MSG would have to sell the team, and that's not happening. They have complete control and that the way they want it. The independent teams are dying, and the NHL teams that don't own their affiliates are seeing that. Even Hershey had had problems with the Capitals not waiting their contracted player doing certain promotions. They're was even talk that they might pull there affiliation because they issues they were having. So, local ownership might not be a good thing." That wasn't really my point...then again, you never seem to get my point anyway. My point was that people forget that if we had local ownership (and for the record, I doubt that's ever going to happen), we might still have the Rangers affiliation anyway. Meaning local ownership doesn't necessarily get rid of the Rangers.
  10. Wolf Pack renew XLC agreement

    The sports landscape has changed drastically in terms of major league teams and their affiliates. The pro teams want their minor league teams close by. So...I agree with Mr. BB. That said...the WolfPack (and this falls more on Spectra than anybody else) still need to do more to cater to the entire fanbase, not just the few Rangers fans the city has.

    If we had local ownership, we might still have the Rangers affiliation. People forget that.

    Vince, just make sure you come by when the Whalers return so Evo, myself and everyone else can rub your nose in it.

    That's our Vince. Once a stubborn know-nothing a-hole....always a stubborn know-nothing a-hole.

    Most people with some semblance of a brain don't need to see the report. When multiple places have the same exact info, that's usually more than enough for people to acknowledge that there must be something to the report. It should also be noted that if the NHL were to return, those numbers would be much higher today than they were 21 years ago...higher salaries, higher prices for everything, from tickets to concessions to food at restaurants/bars around the arena, to souvenirs, and so forth. Not sure what's more amusing...Vince whining about a report from 21 years ago, or Vince's never ending quest to be right about ANYTHING.

    So it doesn't matter that newspapers and TV stations all over the region had the exact same information, in your eyes, it's the actual report or nothing. I am quite sure you were not that asinine about this report when it first came out.
