Did you see the curtains? Did you see any "seat covers"?

I'll tell you what I saw:

Sullivan Arena staff members were yelling at people, grabbing them to stop them as they walked by, all to keep them from going into the balcony, it was disgusting. There was no semblance of customer service anywhere in that area, it felt very much "Them against us". LET PEOPLE SIT WHERE THEY WANT TO SIT!
Give it a rest. Yes, now you actually have to sit with other people! :rolleyes:

The Arena is better with everyone condensed like it was. I like the idea and it seems to have helped things, at least at game one. Things are different and that scares you, but sometimes things change for the better.

BTW, you're asking for customer service from people from Sullivan Arena. Hehe yeah that doesn't happen and you can't really blame UAA for that.

There were curtains in front of the stairs (except the middle section on the north side). There will be seat covers on most of the balcony seats but they didn't come in in time.

We have tickets for the balcony, and staff simply asked to see them and then let us in. I watched them turn a few people away, but they were nice. I think it would be better for Sully staff to stand at the bottom of the stairs and check tickets instead of turning them away when they get to the top of the stairs. BTW, even the healthy scratches for UAA and the coaching staff were asked to leave! Matt and his assistants ended up being able to stay, but they aren't even letting players sit in the balcony.

It was just the first game and people will get used to it. If there is a certain area you want to sit in, buy season tickets for that area. I think there may still be some season tickets available in the balcony area, it wasn't full last night.

Anyway, just as I predicted a few weeks ago, this step greatly improved the atmosphere of the game, and I'm sure it made things much more enjoyable for the players as well. The pregame laser show was awesome!

The atmosphere was better, and it was loud, well the music was really loud. I'm starting to slowly lose my hearing and I'm only 21 because of all the loud music in my headphones, and it was too loud for me. Anybody else feel this way?

It's supposed to be loud, it's a college sporting event. I'm all for it, especially since they are playing a ton of country music

As far as the team goes, i was extremely impressed with Dylan hubbs. That kid reminds me of clarky a lot. Friesen, dusyk and rassell also will be studs for the long run.

Looking forward to Air Force

Go wolves and bobcats tonight

Maybe it was my seats then, around row 10 seems to be where the speakers blast out the most music. Don't get me wrong I like loud things....with bass.

Zack Rassell reminds me a lot of Daniel Naslund: both look like big, lanky guys who don't skate fantastic but use their length and reach very effectively.

I totally agree, it was way too loud. I felt sorry for the parents who had little children there, with no ear protection. One the hearing is damaged it cannot be repaired, it's damaged for life. It seemed louder on the north side than it did when we used to sit on the south side. The other odd thing was that we could hardly hear the end of the period horn, if you can call it a horn. Other people around us mentioned that as well.

I was thinking the same thing last night, and Zach wears the same number too. ;)

Nice way to come back and finish the game, not a pretty one, but I'll take it. A W is a W. Nice comeback UAA.


Go seawolves.

If I'm not mistaken ... Jordan Kwas leads the nation in scoring.

He just might. Leads the nation in hat tricks probably

It certainly wasn't pretty. A better effort is going to be needed next weekend up in Squarebanks against Denver and Wastern Michigan.

i agree, especially with Western getting shutout twice by notre dame this weekend. And i bet Sam Mellor wants to try and stick it to some of his old teammates as well.

Denver also looked good shutting out Merrimack twice this weekend.

Congrats on the good weekend.

Question: is it not possible to buy tickets at a children's rate anymore?

Question: is it not possible to buy tickets at a children's rate anymore?

It does not appear like that is possible anymore. This could be because of the kids get in free promotions. I find two flaws with this though. It technically only allows for 2 tickets per adult ticket purchased. While this did not seem to be the case this weekend because I saw a mother get 6 free tickets for her kids. The bigger issue that I see is that the kids free tickets are located nowhere near where the parents have purchased tickets. This used to be GA open seating tickets but they all have assigned seats on them now. While this is not an issue at present because there are a lot of open seating options it could become a problem if/when attendance picks up.
