Plus, you can't even buy a beer with it. It's useless as far as I'm concerned.
hmm that is disappointing. I buy food every now and then but beer every game. even the new smaller and more pricey beer.

Re: Checkers at Amerks Oct 5 BCA

Interesting these people have wanted to run the arena for years. when they finally get the chance, like most of their moves it was a total fail. charging more for less is going to get me from spending $20-30 on stuff to zero. and I was told there were volunteer groups manning the booths. hmm that is...

Re: Checkers at Amerks Oct 5 BCA

it might be a long uphill effort. from my anecdotal evidence most people only know of NHL and Olympic hockey. for example, I have mentioned to several people at work the Amerks opener is tomorrow. first they had no idea. second, they seem to think the AHL is not a pro league.

Re: Sabres Pre-Season Thread

didn't look good on the first 2 goals. 3rd goal was weak off the blocker. that's when I thought oh $hi*.

Re: New scoreboard, restaurant Knighthawks news and more

I agree the legroom is not great (especially in my seat) but I'm not sure how it can be fixed. the concrete steps the seats are attached to are what they are. maybe tilt the seat backs more upright? but shoulder room could definitely be fixed. I'm wondering if having more width in the seat would all...

Re: New scoreboard, restaurant Knighthawks news and more

I have never been in favor of a new arena for the reasons that have been mentioned: where and who pays. also I think if a new arena was built we would see how much we gave up in the old barn. there is no way you will be this close to the ice in a new arena without paying a lot for tickets. it sounds...

Re: New AHL Streaming Platform

I noticed the site mentions there will be a HD camera that shows the entire ice surface and you can pan/zoom on your device (presumably mobile/tablets).

Has anyone ever heard about this technology? Wondering what is like.

Re: Why Its So Easy to Hate This Year's Red Wings

Well, he's mostly right. I really don't think the real baseball fan cares about exit velocity, launch angle WAR and some of the other stuff that just clogs up the pages. Is baseball supposed to be a scientific game or a fun sport? as a Yankees fan, when Girardi was managing the games were completel...

Re: Red Wings Attendance 2018

The whole paradigm of baseball has changed. Just my opinion but Sabremetrics went from a really interesting concept to a noose around the neck of the game. Everything has been hyper over analyzed and attempted to be translated as numerical. Well that has turned baseball into 3-4 hours of sheer bored...
