    Re: Stafford Arena Idiocy

    I may be a Lakers fan, but I feel for you, Laura. You are trying to root and cheer loudly, but you the AD is being a d-bag. I know I take my jabs at the "Patrons" of Stafford, but I like the place. It's got a team that has a strong tradition and they should be cheered for loudly. However, it's the townspeople that don't want to hear the noise. I'm starting to think they may start serving scones and tea because they may be turning the place into Wimbledon.

      I am a "Townspeople" and I LOVE the noise. All the townspeople I know do as well!! I don't believe that information is correct!!

        Hey, don't go blaming the "Townspeople" pal! We are there for every game year after year while students come and go! We love the Lakers and support them all the time, not just when they are highly ranked. I wish we could bring cowbells and such to add a little more character to the place but unfortunately there would be those who would abuse the privilege and ruin it for the rest of us. (Probably students). I hope you realize that this was in jest - but don't blame the non-students who come and fill the CC.

            Re: Stafford Arena Idiocy

            we are just beating our heads against the wall on the matter , if the security has the authority to enforce the wishes of coach emery ,the AD and the governing body for the NCAA ,what choice do we really have but to find ways to be loud and supportive without horns and cowbells . Sadly the music has not even vaguely represented the hockey music in arenas and the new PA announcer is very stiff and leaves a little to be desired . he isnt even accurate on the numbers for the home team when announcing the starting line up.

            Ironically we have more home games this season then ever , no scoreboard to speak of , our proud tradition is severly tarnished and the net effect is we are trying to make the Ronald B stafford a premiere hockey venue with half hearted ,low budget gimics .....start by admitting the scoreboards were a bad choice , tear them down ,get a refund and go elsewhere for new product , unless the sales rep is some how tied to the program thru bloodline . Hard to fire a relative?

            If I was asked I would begin an "ask the fan (customer) " campaign to see what the "majority" of the fan base is saying they expect from their hockey experience . It could be done by the marketing classes at SUNY and help students as well as the fieldhouse staff and sport mangement answer their critics with real world data.

            Last but not least, whats up with the zamboni , I hear from many knowledgeable rink rats that the ice surfacing attempts by the staff between periods is not very good , excess water is abundant ,large swatches are missed , is this something to do with the equipment or is it just another example of the program needing a shakeup and get some new expertise on the zamboni .

                    I think it's a small minority and the AD that is causing this. I respect guy like Remy, Norm and others that want to cheer and be heard. However, it's the above factors that are causing this. People are supposed to cheer and be loud and at a hockey game. If they don't like it, go watch tennis.

                            I think it's a fear (misplaced or not) that the game may hinge on something equivalent to the flying tennis balls of old.

                              That's is the lamest excuse ever....in that case no one should be able to whistle either....I on second thought might as well put muzzles on everyone in case someone yells change
