  1. There are certain areas where Hartford can't compete with NY and Boston, I totally agree. But there are other areas where they absolutely can.
  2. Oh my god, you're a moron. They were never getting kicked out of the conference. The threat was never there for them to get kicked out of the conference. If the league was SO worried about UConn having an on-campus facility, the league would have demanded an on-campus facility be ready when UConn officially joined the league in 2014/15. Hockey East sees the attendance numbers UConn pulls in, which are right on par or slightly above most of the established HE's a money game, and HE is not stupid. Just one would be great for you to say "hey, I was wrong". One time. I doubt you can do it though. It's just not in your DNA. But stupidity sure is.
  3. And it's strange, because you and the rest of the Packrats told us for years that the ONLY person that EVER tinkered with their attendance numbers was Howard Baldwin... I do believe we tried to tell you...and as don't listen. Still a liar. Still a fraud.
  4. God you're stupid. Do you even read what I post? The article clearly says UConn wasn't getting kicked out of the conference no matter what, and your response is "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." Your brain must be worse than mush. Seriously.
  5. Using this season as an example, Tuesday’s game against Brown would have been on campus. RPI on a Wednesday? Campus. Sacred Heart on a Tuesday? Campus. Throw in another campus game or two — say, Maine on an October Friday night, for which announced attendance was 3,991 but actual attendance was 2,534 — and you have most of a Storrs schedule set. When the basketball teams sell out on-campus games, does that mean UConn screwed up by not building Gampel Pavilion to 15,000? Hockey East previously required its members to have on-campus facilities of no fewer than 4,000 seats, but relaxed those standards at UConn’s request. The Huskies weren’t going to be shown the door by the conference no matter what.
  6. Now then. It's no secret that the number of tickets distributed (notice they don't say "sold) and the number of scanned tickets is different. It's that way for every team, in every sport, regardless of owner, regardless of who is the promoter of the product. In other words...what we've been trying to tell the Packrats for years is true. Thanks again for playing.
  7. I also said it didn't make a difference to me either way. You really should read the entire post instead of just one line of it.
  8. If you don't like what we post, leave. Makes no difference to me either way. Now then...before Fraudie gets his panties in a bunch again, I'll say it before he has a chance. There is absolutely, positively no chance there was 3220 at the UConn/Brown game on Tuesday night. 2500 tops.
  9. I love it. "roughly 6 to 7 games" that doesn't mean they'll definitely play that many. Nobody, not even UConn, knows exactly how many games they're going to play on campus. The arena is still 2 3/4 seasons away. A lot can change in that time frame. Oh, and there is nothing in the second article that says anything about getting kicked out of the conference. It's a requirement that they have an arena on-campus, yes. But, there is no real threat to get kicked out of the league. If there was, the arena would have been done long before now. Still a fraud? Check. Still a liar? Check.
  10. "This is unfortunate news. Isn't Quenneville, Dineen, and Samuelsson the only reason the HWBC is going to a Hawks/Flyers game on November 10th?" Well, it's one of the reasons. Truth be told, the Flyers gave us a really, really good deal on tickets, and the club felt it couldn't pass up the opportunity to go. It's very unfortunate news...but I couldn't help think when I heard the news...the Blackhawks couldn't wait one more week??
  11. " Especially since they have to build the arena or they'll be kicked out of Hockey East. " Nobody said they were getting kicked out of Hockey East. Yet another Fraudie lie.
  12. "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" They have never said that, and you know it. Another Fraudie lie.
  13. It really is amazing how this state continues to do everything half-a$$ed. Monizzle is right. How on earth can anybody with a brain in their head think that UConn will play more than just a few games on campus if/when they get the Frietas "upgrades" done? They'll play 3-4 games on campus to alleviate the schedule crunch in Hartford, but no more. By the way, there's a good way to fix the schedule crunch in Hartford once and for all, but that's a different discussion entirely...
