  • Re: WCHA Final Five: Hello Empty Seats

    Every WCHA fan owes a debt of gratitude to the University of Minnesota hockey fans, who every year, fund the majority of the WCHA tournament with their eyeballs (on TV) and wallets (ticket sales), which in turn, funds the league and the schools in it.

    As a Denver fan, the WCHA tournament should always belong in the Twin Cities, as that the geographic center of the league and it's media hub. Even though most Pioneer fans will never get to see it, there is no solid business case for moving it. Nowhere else will the tourney draw spectator numbers as it does in St. Paul.

    Here endeth the lesson.

        Well put Dirty. No disrespect to Swami, but I dont agree with the tourney being held in St. Paul every year. Granted, it is a good venue in a good setting, but it does seem to favor certain teams and their fan bases. That is all I have.

          There's no way to avoid that or kill the great tournament that it is. This thread is spinning its wheels.

            and then we have fans who continue to argue against having it in St. Paul.

            It is about the money. Pure and simple nothing else matters.

              Good venue, good setting, and it makes money...hmmm, YEAH LET'S CHANGE IT!

              Wow.

              I have attended the F5 for the last 7 years or so, even the non-Gopher games. If the F5 was in Omaha, Grand Forks, WI, Denver, etc, I probably wouldn't have done that. Maybe once every other or 3rd year, but not every year. The X is geographically the center of the league, the monetary center of the league, and the most lively (for non-game activities) for the league (arguably on that one, compared to Madison and Denver, I will admit).

              It ain't moving, nor should it move.

                        Imagine an all-Minnesota F5. Good Lord. Even I would probably avoid it.

                            You aren't, obviously.

                            Minnesota, St. Cloud, Mankato, Duluth, Bemidji.

                            Wait, they switch it up to a stupid format next season. Lame.

                                Yeah, but I forgot that six teams will be in the F5 from now on. They are keeping the name because there will still more than likely be only 5 games.
