Re: Let me know if anything is broken

C'mon, are they really *not* going to sell hope this time of year?

Re: Preseason games / training camp

Might go to the RIT game. I live in Chili, and haven't yet been to the Polisseni Center.

Re: Red Wings Attendance 2018

Because people want it. I mean, I think it's crazy too, but the reason why there's so much of it is because there's a demand for wall to wall coverage.

When you're a media outlet trying to survive, it's all about what people will read/watch/listen to.

Re: Goodbye SMG

I saw a familiar name on Channel 13 last night, actually. (Ya did good.)

Considering that the Pegulas have tried numerous times to get control of the arena, I'm sure they're ready to go. (I hope.)

Re: What really happened: The Buffalo News loses half their sports staff in the span of a month

I'm wary of Sullivan's agenda here. He came off as quite bitter in his reaction on Twitter, instead of just saying 'thanks for the memories' or something similar, it's tossing TBN under the bus.

Doesn't mean he had wrong info, it just adds a layer of skepticism that may or may not be justified.

Re: PSE buying the Knighthawks?

Sure, yeah. Plus I'd be shocked if Styres wants to keep the name/colors for the Halifax team. When the Philadelphia team moved to Connecticut a few years back, the team left the Wings name/colors behind and rebranded. But it'd be a real kick to the pants to see the best pro team in the city moved, a...

Re: PSE buying the Knighthawks?

Depending on who stays and who goes, could feel like a gut punch to fans.

Re: PSE buying the Knighthawks?

There's a terrific MLS history written by Beau Dure called Long-Range Goals from 2010 which covers the league, explaining the single-entity structure and the effects of having an owner of multiple teams. It's worth seeking out if you're curious.

Re: PSE buying the Knighthawks?

Eh. It should be pointed out that Sakiewicz didn't have the best track record in MLS. I've no idea how competent he was behind the scenes, but the teams were consistently bad on the field. That said, MLS was so much its own thing, especially in the early days when Lamar Hunt and Phil Anschutz owned ...

Re: PSE buying the Knighthawks?

I mean, it's pretty obvious why they'd do it. I'm just worried that the Hawks would get stripped for parts and sent down the Thruway. Could Buffalo support 2 NLL teams? Oh, wait I think I get what you're saying now. Yeah, sorry I wasn't too clear. I'm not talking about the team moving to Buffalo (a...
