By the way I had no issues with the internet feed. Sounds like some of you are having problems with your ISP.

I also enjoy Bill Crawford. He IS the voice of Laker Hockey

He can be a bit of a Negative Nellie, but he does know the team and the game well. He also knows that the Lakers have seen better talent. No offense to the current guys who played their butts off this weekend.

...And he can flat-out call a game, he is as good anyone I have ever heard.

He does not make the trips to Alaska?

...And he can flat-out call a game, he is as good anyone I have ever heard.I think he's actually toned it down a bit the past couple of seasons. I think Roque thought he was being too critical at times and there was probably some friction there. Yes, Bill calls a great Lakers game. He doesn't normally make the trip to Alaska, at least not any more. He may have in the past. The Soo station picks up the UAF broadcast now.

Poor Crawford, just can't win.....for the longest time, the main complaint against him was that he was a total homer and that affected his call of the game. Now he's just too critical???
Their isn't a finer broadcaster than Bill Crawford, the man has lived a breathed Laker Hockey since the team's inception.

Great great great start for the Lakers!!!!

Well... Since the late 80's, but your point still stands.

I am told by several students that part of the influx to the game is the freshman. They came out in force for a change. Maybe because their all from downstate and MSU fans from their peewee days. Any thoughts on why attendance was so high? I wouldn't think it was the Spartie fans as they were all watching football this weekend.

First off, GREAT WIN! It's great to hear that the freshmen are playing well and some guys have stepped up to replace the scoring we lost.

The Saturday game of Great Lake State weekend always has a huge crowd, no matter who we are playing. I think that there are lots of ticket giveaways that weekend and maybe a lot of perspective students on campus. If you look back through the years you will see 2,700-2,900 fans at random games like AIC and Canisius on GLSW. The fact that it was MSU probably brought out another 600-800 folks. For years I've wondered why they have had GLSW on non conference (or even exhibition) weekends. I always thought that they should do it this way and pack the house for a meaningful conference game.

Well done Lakers!

It was Great Lake State Weekend (annual Alumni weekend) ... plus Sparty is always a big draw. Combine the two reasons and you get some nice, big crowds. Saturday's crowd probably had some folks in it who heard about Friday's great game and came out to see it for themselves!

Great sweep for the team this weekend and it was really nice to see so few empty seats during the game. I was looking forward to the radio show tonight to bad the station can't get their act together and stream it on line.

Does it do any good to call and complain?

Does it do any good to call and complain?Couldn't hurt. The station is aware of the problem. Fixing it just doesn't seem to be much of a priority for them. I think this is the last season of their current contract for broadcasting Laker hockey. Maybe someone else will get the contract next season and will put more effort and money into doing things right.

That is good to know Bill. I guess it doesn't matter to those that live in the Sault, or at that radio station, but I know quite a few alumni that are out of town that like to tune in from time to time, and are getting tired of the same old song and dance. Maybe I will contact the University instead. They should be made aware of this persistent problem. Maybe one of the other stations will give the Lakers better coverage.

The Lakers are 4-0 for the first time in many years. A possible 6-0 start with a sweep of B.G? Possible and it looks like Coach Roque has some good recruits and has the boys playing well.

Go Lakers!

Not to much to hope for there because the same company owns all the radio stations the eastern up let alone town. Try emailing the University. My wife or I would call every week to get them to put it up on podcast last year. They have no compition so we are at their mercy.

YesFM and RadioSoo are not owned by the same companies, are they?

Go Lakers!They can't take BG too lightly, but if they play well both nights they could get a sweep. They struggled to score against them last December when BG was in the Soo, so let's hope that changes this season. I may make it up to the Soo for this weekend's series.
