right now im on ctnow.com and there is an advertisement for ball joints from advance auto. This morning i was looking at ball joints from advance auto. So what i was trying to say is you are not seeing paid advertisements on facebook and youtube. youre seeing what your computer knows you like.

Yes, but they are paid to be put there. When I went on vacation to Maine this year, the ads at the top of this page were for Maine News channels, and the Portland Sea Dogs. Yesterday, one of the ads at the top of this page was for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. I've never been on any of those pages. It's called "ad tailoring", and you have to pay to have those ads put on pages on the internet. It uses the cookies stored on your computer to tailor the ads to things you might like, and put them in the ad bars on certain pages.

it is what it is. I'd just be surprised that anyones paying anything promotion wise. i love the team, but the marketing still blows, has for years, even before Howard (for all who want to jump on that) Ya know who markets this team? The Fans. I put myself into season tickets, all Whale games in Springfield, the All Star game and i'm yet to hear one little peep about the 2012/13 Hartford Hockey Saeson.

 

"Marketing the **** out of this team?" more like "The **** with marketing this team."

I just saw a CT Whale tv commercial while watching ESPN. I must say it was pretty good and fit with the motto for the team this season, "We Believe". Commercials are out there you just have to find them. I also get the pop-ups everyone is talking about on my computer for the CT Whale. Hope to see more commercials as the week and the game closes in on the news stations, etc.

 

Lets Go CT Whale!!

Seems a little long for a slogan. Maybe that's why they shortened it, then.

Believe the Whale is like the Whalers?

Believe that the Whale will win the Calder Cup?

Believe that Hartford is a hockey town?

Believe that Hartford will become a hockey town?

Believe that 1985-86 can be like 2012-2013?

Believe in the team called the Whale?

Its vague just as ONE GOAL was.

ONE GOAL, was not vague. Its was simple, ONE GOAL, win the Calder Cup. It had no other meanings, IMHO.

 

WE BELIEVE, is believe in the team. It can also mean we believe we can win the Calder Cup.

Do you think anyone believes this?

 

"Believe that the Whale will win the Calder Cup?"

 

Do you think many people care about this? Or perhaps we all misread the playoff attendance figures.

 

"Believe that Hartford is a hockey town?"

 

This would be much truer if MSG/AEG were not in Hartford.

 

"Believe that Hartford will become a hockey town?"

 

It can be again once MSG/AEG are not in Hartford.

 

"Believe that 1985-86 can be like 2012-2013?"

 

This has to be a joke; I guess unless you would actually compare even a Whale Calder Cup win with the Whalers 1985-'86 run in the NHL Playoffs.

 

"Believe in the team called the Whale?"

 

This I do believe. I also believe in a team called the Kansas City Chiefs. Meaning I know that they exist, too.

 

"Its vague just as ONE GOAL was."

 

Perhaps you should look up the definition of the word 'vague.' 'One Goal' is specific. 'We Believe' is vague, as evidenced by the fact that you yourself just gave a half dozen potential answers for it.

It should be better, I mean aeg dosnt have to pay rent so they have more money from ticket sales and concessions to take **ll advantage of it, if you ask me they should be doing more to promote witch in turn would help hartford prove it is an NHL ready market
