That seems odd, as AEG has otherwise always done what's best for Hartford & Whale fans.

I also noticed that when I asked BurkeIsALoser to give me a reason why the interactive seat finder hasn't been active all week, he magically disappeared.

 

There isn't a doubt in my mind he works for AEG, and there isn't a doubt in my mind he's the one that got the seat finder thing turned off. God forbid there should be people that actually give a crap about this market and how the team in this market does at the box office.

I don't want to jinx anything here either, but I absolutely know who you're referring to.

Yeah, Howard Baldwin. It'd be great if they brought him back though on opening night, the way Steinbrenner used to do when he brought back Billy Martin every time he fired Martin.

 

How cool would that be? :) Baldwin walks out to center ice as the announcer states that he's being re-hired.

It looks like the Rangers will be live streaming the game on BlueShirtsUnited.com. So, if you can't make it to the game, you can still watch it online for free.

Tonight we get to see if AEG will blend together Whaler tradition with WolfPack tradition. The way it should have been when Howard took over. Not all WolfPack, not all Whalers. Just a compromise to acknowledge both sides of the fan base.

 

PS.

Let's Go O's!

Like the compromise MSG made when they came here, got rid of everything Whalers, gave their unwanted team a nonsensical name, put them in Rangers jerseys, then did almost nothing for years after while giving not a whit for Hartford?

 

Comparing the Whalers fan base to the Wolf * Pack "fan base" is one of the **nniest things written here in awhile.

 

Go Yankees, & Go Sound Tigers/Islanders.

I have to be honest. I don't ever want to see the words "WolfPack" and "tradition" used together in the same sentence again unless you're talking about North Carolina State.

True, two wrongs do not make a right. I truly do feel that MSG should have given the team some Whalers flavor. But I also believe MSG was not trying to be harsh, simply trying to turn the page. People were angry the Whalers left. They didn't use Rangers blue when they came here they used a navy.

I am not trying to compare the Whalers fan base to the WolfPack fan base. When it comes to caring about the NHL, Whaler fans are far more superior. When it comes to caring about the AHL the WolfPack/Whale are far more superior. The problem with everything Whalers is we don't have the NHL we have the AHL. But why do you care you support crackport. They could play the Br***** Bonanza all night long at Whale games and your still a sound tiger fan, just like when it was the WolfPack. The rebrand didn't do anything for you.

Tiscipa Looking at Sunday's map, it's quite evident the season ticket base is right at or lower than Howard's last season. So much for the aggressive marketing plan that was promised.

 

What he said!

AEG "We are going to market the **** out of this team."

 

(Unless we get put up for sale). I think having the company on the block changed that thought.

Ahhhhh Stripes. I wouldn't have gotten it.

 

I tried to watch the Whale game through BSUnited and guess what?

 

Didn't work!

 

I am not surprised. Wish it did. In Vegas currently you can bet Preseason and WNBA but not the AHL
