    I would think so, but she could say that an enclosed venue is different from an open one.
    Maybe they can open the back doors like Coach Harkness would sometime do back in the early days?

    If RPI-TV is doing the football home games, can we expect (hope?) that they'll be allowed to broadcast the HFH games ? Or would that be asking too much from the dictator ?

    For anyone interested -RPI TV has started the broadcast of today's football contest with Montclair State. Go RED!!!!!!! This may not be one of those easy first games like we often schedule. Montclair is and has been a good team in the past few years.

    No problem DrD. I'm sure they think the same. The exhibition is always less intense and more about shaking off rust
    True - but then again this is Union we are playing and not a Canadian school like we have done so many times. I just hope that no one is thinking of this as a rivalry type game or trying to set a precedent for the 3 or more games later this year. When younger (much younger) I played this game and something strange happens once you step onto the ice. Off the ice you can remain a gentleman but once you get out there and take the first hit, you can forget about all of that and go out and just try to score and hit as hard as you can. Should make for an interesting exercise this year!

    I noticed the lack of visitors and was going to make a snide remark about the fan base of a NJ commuter school when I remembered that we wouldn’t let them in. I thought about how ****ed I’d be if I drove 150 miles only to be told I couldn’t even buy a ticket. I guess I’d watch the game from the hill behind the visitor’s side and swear at RPI.

    On a (barely) related note, Montclair State is the home of New York Red Bulls 2, the reserve (minor league) team for the MLS side. Last year they were playing Hartford in a (for them) big game and COVID blocked admission so the Hartford supporters set up shop in the parking garage overlooking the stadium.

    Lacking a direct view into the rink, does anyone have a small generator or inverter and 50”+ TV to set up outside HFH for a tailgate and RPI TV viewing party?

    It sounds like this season they are going to let students attend the games for free to promote attendance

    Sez-thanks for the answer. Since nothing will count, if I was on the ice I don't think I would take any extra chance that might lead to a season ending injury. i have said this before but usually in referring to the Mayor's Trophy Game. There are a lot of reasons to try to get a win over Union in this exhibition but after all, it is meaningless. Every weekend after that game is far more important. I would just like to see everyone get some ice time and a bit of experience.

    Either RPI TV invested in much better crowd microphones or there was a really good and loud crowd on hand. With all of the COVID restrictions I hope they emphasize athletic contests as a way to get out of the dorms and support fellow students.
