Attendance was 6951.I think they imported 2.000 freshmen from the dorms.

Could have. I saw video of the Class of 2018 running onto the field during pregame. One assumes they all had student tickets, which are free but count towards attendance.

Yes, very good attendance by the Freshman class who arrived on Campus Friday. Many of them left at half time.

If he's not even allowed to take classes and practice in the fall, wouldn't that be detrimental to his conditioning and impact his game-readiness (if and when they allow him back in the spring) with not even being able to even practice with the team? It's all speculation otherwise until we hear confirmation whether or not his appeal has been successful or not, but since we haven't heard anything more in the last two weeks it looks increasingly doubtful that UMaine will have a change of heart and change its ruling. That "Fill the Steins Blog" article about the situation seems to be the view the University was hoping the fans would adopt, but it seems that most of the posts on the topic from this forum think UMaine has overreacted and has sent one of their better players packing to send a message that no future altercations by any player will be tolerated without expulsion from the University.




UMaine has overreacted and they weren't thinking about the fans. It was a drunken fight. Hope it's reduced

They don't want the expense of operating the additional concession stand.

They obviously don't want the revenue either.

They don't care about you or the others...even with just one concession stand they make there money and could care less if you get it in 2 minutes or 20.

Do they care if I didn't buy anything at all because the lines were too long? I would have spent about $20........many others don't wait in line either.

I think there are a couple reasons people are upset...The first is that even though he might not be Paul Kariya he would have made a big difference this year. I would have expected to put up something like 15-15-30. Given the parity in college hockey a contribution like that is probably worth a couple spots in the standings and potentially the difference between making the NCAA's or not. The second thing that has people upset is the way the whole thing played out. The school claimed all summer no action had been taken and he was just suspended indefinitely and then it came out a couple weeks ago that was complete BS. I think they would have been better off just kicking him out of school straightaway if they never intended on treating him fairly, which they clearly didn't.

Geez dude do you want to see our team back in the NCAA's or not? Or are you just content with mediocrity? We're not the Dallas Cowboys here

Wow, you still are hanging on to this idea that Lomberg would have made a major difference. If he had a 30 point season it wouldn't have mattered because of the 10+ goals scored against Maine while Ryan is in the sin bin(you know real or perceived reputation would have led to sooo many calls against him). Plus, add in the momentum killing he would have done. Diamonds senior season is all I could see in Ryans future at Maine. Lomberg is a status-quot player, his effect on the final score is a wash.
Maybe Red could have gotten into his head and turned him around, maybe even that could still happen, but as increasingly shown last season he was not utilizing his potential/skill due to lack of effort and a bad on ice mental game.
One last important note, but Ryan was by far my favorite player until mid-season this past year. He seemed to just go "dumb" and not give the effort every shift.

That and every ref in this league hates us. On a better note, Casey DeSmith was arrested over the weekend

There's no doubt Lomberg earned a reputation that had him penalized for borderline calls more often than not, and regardless whether or not I think Maine will be fine offensively without him, I don't agree with how UMaine dealt with the public relations around this whole situation and I do think the punishment was excessive.

I am with you man... I had no use for Prestin Ryan or even Ray Bourque... violence and contact have no place in hockey .... I team of all Tim Whiteheads and Keenan Hopsons is the way to win championships... if I remember the 2009 Terriers correctly, none of them ever hit, never mind hit hard.
Brendan Walsh led the 1999 Maine team pretty far with his gentlemanly play, as did Prestin Ryan in 2002/4.

I say bench ANYONE who takes a penalty! are you with me wayupthere?

Yeah that's real smart. Why don't we bench Tom Brady every time he throws a pick?

The two major football incidents involving former UMaine playersthat happened recently, which in all likelihood lead to the harsh punishment for Lomberg,were instances of domestic violence.

But you're talking about different cases here. Domestic violence is a far cry from disorderly conduct

I agree 100%. I was just pointing out in all probability it was perceived negligence by the University with those individuals in the football program leading up to their respective tragedies that lead to the "make-up" call on Lomberg that looked more like just throwing him under the bus with their decision to bar him from attending the school for even classes for a year and a half.
