Yard Goats stadium being half empty actually helps Whalers

13 posts in this topic

With the Yard Goats seeing a major slide in their attendance, with the stadium now more than half empty for games, that is going to help the Whalers come back as it shows that Hartford is a hockey city, and not a baseball city. We cannot play second fiddle to baseball, Andy Gresh on the radio would only talk about football and baseball and he got shown the door by WTIC last week, Gresh was a former football player and had no time for hockey, ratings were poor for sports talk on WTIC due to the Whalers not receiving the same amount of air time as the Patriots and Giants would receive from Gresh. I know some people were concerned that all of this talk and hoopla surrounding the Yard Goats was taking the spotlight off our push to bring back the NHL and find a home for the struggling Hurricanes, as the Yard Goats become a struggling team characterized by a losing schedule and a brand new stadium being half empty for games, it will help instead keep the spotlight on the NHL returning.

It's been 6 games, relax. 3 of which were played on a weekday in April. This is a AA team and once the summer roles around and more weekend dates families will be coming out.

MLB can't draw spit this early. That's why they refer to the game as The Boys of Summer. Is the hoop la about the XL and a NHL return fizzeling? Not reading much about the "prediction" that the Whalers are on their way from some where and the billions will be raised regardless of the economy and those billionaires will come out with some announcement after the playoffs

Yard Goats and Whalers are apples and oranges...you can't compare double A baseball to the NHL. Different fan bases, far fewer home hockey games than baseball games, double AA is largely families on a night out once or twice a year not diehard fans like of an NHL team. It's nice to have the Yard Goats, don't get me wrong, but they honestly were just fine in New Britain and the stupidity with the ballpark would be a huge factor in the XL not being **nded if the geniuses in the capitol do something as asinine as not approve renovations.

Most minor league baseball teams don't draw well during the week until school gets out for the summer. Most MAJOR league baseball teams don't draw well during the week until school gets out for the summer.

No, Timmy is not me, the teen brat. He joined here in 2010, when I was 7.
