Re: THE RACE TO 16 WINS

At the end of the day, it is a great and innovative way to get the arena full every night.  I would like to know what that average $15 student rush ticket spends at the game on parking, concessions, and apparel.  Attendance issues are across the board in all sports, with the TV and streaming access ...

Re: THE RACE TO 16 WINS

Every team has fair weather fans and attendance troubles when they are consistently losing. The Pens almost losing the franchise had little to do with attendance and a lot of do with politics and playing in an arena designed for the 1960 World Fair.  If you want to understand their issues of the tim...

Re: THE RACE TO 16 WINS

Oh give me a break. I attended 2 games this year because I live about an hour away and tickets were free. I also had access to about a dozen of other flyers games for free but didn’t feel like going to that many games for a team I don’t care about. Try to find free penguins tickets... The games I we...

Re: THE RACE TO 16 WINS

I know it was just one game but man that felt like more than a 1-0 series lead. With that said, Philly could easily come out tonight and take this back to Broad Street with  home ice advantage. I think the dilemma Philly and most teams are gonna have is how do you counteract the balance of this peng...

Re: Pirates vs. Cubs April 10-12

Pitching will be an issue.  They absolutely can not have an extended DL stint for Taillon, Nova, or Vasquez (Rivero).  This goes back to why I was so disappointed in the Cole trade.  If you put this roster alongside a starting rotation that features 3 guys that will put you in a position to win for ...

Re: College Hoops

I really think both major college sports (football and basketball) need to get away from "Selection Committees" which absolutely reek of corruption and instead they need to have pre-set qualifications before the season.  Look at how the state wrestling brackets are set up, 5 qualify from o...

Re: College Hoops

Moldo, I don't see the issue with a coach taking a nap.  Could you imagine the schedule's these coaches have?  They have a practice at 5-7 am, review tape from 7 am to 10 am, staff meetings until 1 pm, get on a plane by 2 pm and arrive at a recruits home by 5 pm, pretend you enjoy the recruit's momm...

Re: College Hoops

Why do you think most top 100 recruits take all 5 of their official visits even after committing verbally to a school?  Because it sounds fun as hell.   I'm sure these schools all make sure the food is 5*, the girls are 5*, the plane ride is smooth, and the parties are popping.  I am pretty sure Par...

Re: College Hoops

My guess is it is north of $7.5 and south of $9.2 million.  I know Stallings turned down a $7.5 million offer before they began negotiations.
