  1. Just a quick stop to say good luck tonight, me thinks you’re going to need it- Looking forward to a good game where everyone stays healthy. I’ll be in my Center court chair back seat hopefully cheering Saints on to victory
  2. Patsos can flap his gums all he wants...alternate or scrap the series. Enough already with always being at their gym. No other D1 team would put up with this...neither should we. Give them an ultimatum and they can bounce and get someone else to come in and fill their arena to the tune of 11k. We'll see how quickly they run back...beat it! The days of a small liberal arts school struggling financially dictating terms to a flagship campus of the largest state university system in the country are over! If they had any alternative, they wouldn't have agreed to come this year, call their bluff. Hahaha typical delushional post- it was Patsos who wanted the game at Sefcu- Darg didn’t want it, but in the end relented. Darg is taking a lot of heat for this game- win lose or draw tonight you will not see Siena back at sefcu. If that’s the end of the series so be it
  3. Me and Boob87 go way back -- you cant talk about delusional fans bases and leave good ole Bob out. I dont even know who that name calling whack job Eli is- I'm not responsible for every post on Siena anymore than you are responsible for every off the wall posts on this board .. But I do get what you are saying DP- you run a good board and I respect that.. Tony Out... Sorry for interruption boys..see you a few days before the game for some good ole fashioned smack talk
  4. Who you calling a stooge? I didn’t complain about freezing anyone out—it’s called a comment Eli- no need to get “testy” Nor am I interested in your “history “ lesson or comments on delusional Siena fans- please read some posts on this board and get back to me about delusional. I wasn’t here complaining about game at Sefcu—or whether Siena should play at Sefcu at all. If you want to get into that discussion, I’d be more than happy to school you. And I’m glad you are OK with playing game at TUC.. when you are in charge of negotiations it will mean something to me- until then care less what a know nothing UA fan thinks -- fans from small conference teams that draw flies don’t normally get to set the terms..LOL.. enjoy the game at Sefcu this year—save the insults and dumb comments
  5. Sorry Booby not disappointed at all—I have my center court chair back season tickets. And yeah I’m glad UA got the new screen—bout time they put some improvements into the old "gym"--- and BTW it will be much more than me and my 4 Siena friends at game..question will be how many more? What do you guys think? 500--- 1000—1500 how many Siena fans will get into game? And how many UA fans will be frozen out? Any opinions. Personally I think about 1,000 Siena fans get in.. Another 200 to 500 dignitary seats.. Which leaves what about 3K for UA students and fans—pretty much looks like if you don’t have season tickets or empire package you will not get into game. But I’ll defer to you guys- you know the ins and outs better than me. All I know for sure is I’ll be there.
  6. I'm all for taking Siena fans money, but to charge UA GDAC members/season ticket holders $40/60 to get additional seats is a bit ridiculous. So based on my current $125 plan, 32% of it is going towards that one game. So you expect a discount for hot seats just because you already own other seats somewhere else in the arena? I don't think that's fair either. Due to the demand for this game, the prices are higher. You're paying the same $40-60 that a fan off the street who's going to their first ever UA game would pay. You just get first stab at them...which is nice perk. I don't think it's unfair, honestly. But then again, I only own one seat as of today. It's not so much wanting a discount for season ticket holders. Its more the price being set too high in general. Giving season ticket holders first crack for individual tix is def a nice perk no doubt, but is the demand really there for them to charge $40 and $60 to go see this game? This is a Sunday game at 7pm on Thabksgiving weekend. It's going to be interesting to see how this plays out.Guess we will find out.I wouldn't pay that price for a game against a lowly maac team if it wasn't part of my season ticket package and I haven't asked friends who join me for a few games and year if they are interested at that price. Then again there are more than 340 division 1 teams that I think are worth more money than lcc That’s great news Bob—I bet you make all UA fans proud..LOL. I have my UA season tickets and will buy 2 more seats for Siena game when available. That’s good News Bob you don’t want to buy the extra Siena seats, just leaves more seats for another Siena fan to gobble up.. You keep fighting the good fight Bob..LOL
  7. Congrats guys on a great college basketball game last night. I shouldn’t butt in…but can’t help myself I don’t get the ragging on Peter Hooley? As a Siena fan he was player I feared the most ( maybe because I’m a big Peter Hooley fan- he is by far my favorite Dane) kid is an absolute warrior, was trying to make things happen out there and was only Dane that could consistently get inside without getting his shot swatted back at him. We want our players to be error free, but remember these kids are college kids, Peter played his heart out. And just my 2 cents -Without Peter Hooley last night UA loses that game by 15 to 20 points I was very happy game wasn’t a 1 point loss for Joe Cremo- kid is a good looking freshmen and will be a great players for Danes down the road- he was beside himself after that ball went into hoop. Was impressed the way Brown and Basset consoled him after play Anyway for those of you that attended the game, you got to see a very competitive fun college basketball game. UA has a very solid team and will win a lot of games this year. Good luck and see you next year at Sefcu!!
  8. Sounds to me like game is a tossup- too bad AE teams dont get Vegas lines, love to know how the betting public would see this game This is a toss up I'd agree. I've seen Siena several times and it's a good team this year. My biggest concern is more centered on UA... Will the Yale, Marist, Colgate UA show up or bu, usf UA show up. Can't afford the long scoring droughts we get into. OK I lied back again.. Have some time to kill.. Ilko please my friend don’t put words into my mouth, first of all I almost never talk about Olympic sports, women’s basketball Lacrosse or any other sport since I don’t follow them, I have nothing against them, just don’t follow them and seldom comment on them one way or another- if your reading something about them on my board, it’s not from me. A few years ago when football stadium opened I actually PM’d several members of this board and commented how much I liked stadium and how much fun I had at the game, in fact I’m quite sure I made those comments on Siena board. I think it’s quite obvious Albany has a great athletic department, sorry if I don’t say that enough for your liking I go to the games at sefcu because I like college basketball since I already go to a few games and I want to go to Siena UA game, I’ll buy UA season tickets next year, allows me to cherry pick UA games- and when I’m there I’ll root for Danes, and BTW I won’t be alone, I expect several hundred Siena fans will do same. It will be ironic when some members of this board don’t get into game because it’s at sefcu I don’t really get the I hate UA or all UA fans hate Siena attitude, most of you guys (not all) are as bad as some Siena posters hating the other school, not all, but rest assured the over the top talk goes both ways – ( read some of Bobs posts with unbiased view and get back to me..LOL) just as much "over the top" on this board as Siena board.. and hey that’s OK, as long as everyone remembers it’s just a game have fun talk a little smack.. and don’t get carried away Enjoy!!
  9. And for full disclosure for some of you guys ( and or gals) I really have no problem with UA at all. I go to a few UA football games a year a few UA Men’s basketball games. In fact I’m quite sure I’ll buy chair back season tickets next year. Ta ta for now I’ll check back in tomorrow win or lose tonight!!
  10. Hi Patch-- how are you? - and agree-- been a tough 5 years!!
  11. Sounds to me like game is a tossup- too bad AE teams don’t get Vegas lines, love to know how the betting public would see this game
  12. You have a CC team that has to go back to last century for a team good enough to make the ncaa tournament in a year they did not purchase the conference tournament and THEY want to put an asterisk on another teams accomplishments. Yeah OK. It is not like they ever earned a right to play a conference tournament game at home like teams in other conferences like the AE have. Yes those Siena teams that won 44 out of 47 MAAC games and 2 NCAA games should really have an asterisk..LOL.. is Bob your best and brightest poster? LOL
  13. Olddave is seriously delusional... I've been on that board a long time. Tony is the guy that for years insisted SIENA would never play at sefcu. Guy is taking his medicine right now. Fell flat on his face with that one. Come at me bro... I would love to see old Tony denied a seat at SEFCU next year, or do you think finding him a far corned would be punishment enough? Finally, after six years LCC will have to enter our house! Sorry Boys I'll be there next year ( I already go to a few UA games every year) - Don't be haters...as for insisting Siena would never play at Sefcu-- that was when Fran was coach( maybe early in Mitch's term not really sure) --Times change. I obviously don't make the schedule for Siena, all I can do is give my opinion. As for Siena dictating terms to UA-- never said that either. Siena owes UA nothing, UA owes Siena nothing- if the game makes sense for both schools you do it, otherwise skip it. For some reason you guys think you are entitled to something from Siena. Siena doesn't owe UA a home game or anything else for that matter. Anyway thought I’d swing by and say Good luck tonight, hope we have a good college game where everyone leaves healthy!! And fellas it’s only a game—no reason for the hate ..Carry on boys!!
  14. Overall athletics no question UA all the way —men’s and women’s basketball not even close. UA had a better team the last few years but Siena has a far superior program( I know that hurts you UA fans but its the truth dont be bitter From tradition ,Facilities ( Siena practice and locker facilities are far superior to UA’s right now and they are about to get better with 20 million practice facility) Media attention , budget , Fan support it’s not even close— from a few of the clowns on this board ( Bob) I would expect that.. but I know you know better than that Patch-Hope and pray for a win tonight- UA is the favorite..Siena is playing a bunch of freshmen..according to clack nobody on Siena would start for UA-- So UA in a route eh? If not will it be the coaching, the talent ? get your excuses ready now
  15. Good luck tonight boys-- one thing though , if you are going to quote me, please do so correctly- never said our guards will cause havoc. Jimmy’s press is designed more to speed up opponent than to turn you over. Might see a bit more trapping tonight to see how UA’s unproven backcourt handles it. As you guys will see tonight Siena has much more overall team speed than UA- So Siena will try and push the pace. UA has more experience and size and will try to control the tempo and make it a half court slug it out game ( favors UA) . Had Maurice White been healthy Siena might have started 4 freshmen tonight- as it is starting 3 freshmen- normally not a recipe for success, but these are talented kids, so UA better get them this year, might be your last chance for a while .. Nice to see so many UA fans coming in from all over the country for this game. Do you think you get more people at this game than any other regular season game in Albany? I have many UA friends and they love this game at the TUC- gives UA a taste of playing in front of a big crowd in your home city- has to be great experience for the UA players. I always wondered why UA Doesn’t get more fan support, do you think Brown’s half court style plays into that ? or maybe his career record? And please note this is not a shot—honest question on why UA doesn’t draw better You have had some decent teams, but UA lags far behind Siena basketball, but probably also RPI and Union hockey ( don’t know that for sure)
  16. Congrats on the win. How about this.. The greatest Non-Conference win in UA history
  17. All Hail the Danes.. Will Brown had a very good game plan- UA players wanted the game more and I have to say I was very impressed with Logan Aronhalt—the kid is a player… UA was most definitely the better team tonight…Well done and good luck the rest of the year!!
  18. I think its worth killing the game just so I dont have to hear UA fans whine for a week every year. Lets review: UA gets their biggest home payday of the year, gets to play in the best atmosphere they will see all year in Albany, gets more press than any regular season game. UA gets more exposure for this game than any other regular season game they play. The game is televised all over New York State thanks to Sienas Time Warner contract- yet you still see 9 pages of UA fans bitch moan and complaining of the game- just no satisfying some fan bases Anyway Im outta here guys ..Ill stop by after the game win lose or draw -cause thats how I roll
  19. What part of this don’t you understand... I don’t care how many tickets UA's gets... if you want to call giving UA the same amount of tickets as they average in fans a ‘small allotment “ what are you saying about UA’s average attendance? If the powers that be at UA don’t like the deal- they can easily not renew it .. What part is hard to understand here? ...Siena doesn’t owe UA anything. Personally I don’t care one way or another- the game is a no win situation for Siena and to be quite frank Siena wins every year anyway- UA's portion of the crowd has been steadily declining so its no big deal to me if the contract doesn’t get renewed, I'm a firm believer that UA gets more out of this game than Siena does. If you want to say telling you the truth is arrogant so be it.. But it doesn’t change the facts Again you chose to ignore some facts and things I said. Although our attendance is much, much smaller yours, it doesn't speak to the fact that this game is an outlier in terms of attendance...for BOTH teams. I conceded in my post that I couldn't say much about the current deal, as we made our bed, now we must lay in it. The arrogance is from people like yourself honestly believing that this deal is in any way equitable. I hope something can be worked out going forward as long as it isn't anywhere near the level of highway robbery we're engaged in now. No win situation??? It is your biggest draw all year! And on top of it you've gotten a W out of it the vast majority of years. You get even more press the week before and after (hard to believe). Not sure what more you could ask for from an OOC opponent? As said before, if siena makes so little, both financially and otherwise, off this game (which you can NOT dispute is the biggest draw of the year), than I would love to see what kind of "hits" you guys take when you play somebody like UVM, NJIT or even Niagra? I must not be clear here-- if I gave the impression Siena didn’t make any money on the game-- sorry was not my intention... of course Siena makes money off the game.. damn good money... but in the end - given the fact Siena gives UA 2500 tickets and another 200 or 300 "complimentary” tickets ( for players families etc) Siena pays increased security and clean up costs etc... the good people of the Albany county take their share etc.. the difference between getting 8K for Florida Atlantic and 12000 for UA is nominal- its not like Siena is getting a windfall and like I’ve said a million times what Siena makes is of no concern to UA,,, all UA should be concerned with is how much does UA make and does the game make sense for UA and its men’s basketball team. - If it doesn’t walk away
  20. Old dog—where did I say Siena makes less off the UA game? If we get 12000 today and Siena gives UA 2500 tickets.. that’s a net of 9500 tickets for Siena… thru the first two games Siena is avg 8500 a game.. a difference of 1000 fans no big deal in the grand scheme of things..hardly a windfall as some of your UA friends would think. UA on the other hand probably nets close to 50K off this game… far more than getting 1500 fans in @ 6 bucks a ticket… think about it. Please reread my statement. You claimed that Siena makes little off the game with UA. And I disagree with your analysis that an extra 1000 fans makes little difference. If your expenses are so high each night, then the extra thousand fans is all cream. I don't know all that much about basketball, but I do have some common sense. Makes little extra... yeah 1000 more fans - Siena pays all the security clean up etc... In the end very little difference getting 8K in for Florida Atlantic ( like Siena will) than getting 12K for UA.. again what is it to UA fans what Siena makes on any game. The bottom line here is UA will make more on this game than any home game all season- UA will get more publicity than for any other home game- what Siena makes is quite frankly not your concern- your concern is what’s in it for UA.. And if its not worth it—walk away , what is so hard to understand here?
  21. ahh the ole Donkey Punch to UA ..gotta love it

  24. Not EVERY year. There is absolutely no way they could replace the UA game. At best they would be able to do a HOME and HOME and get a good crowd every OTHER year. Last year they couldn't even schedule the last game they are allowed under the limit of games. In those years they would be down 2 games if they kept their arrogance. Yo guys- thought I stop by for my yearly bitch slapping of my good buddy Bob Since Siena gives UA 2500 tickets… what does UA avg per home game 2600 if that? Don’t really care if you believe this or not but Siena doesn’t make much more off the UA game than any other home game - remember Siena avg over 8000 fans a game last year and are avg over 8K thru the first two home games Siena doesn’t “owe” UA anything. UA gets 2,500 tickets - at 15 to 20 bucks a ticket – no travel expenses UA probably makes more on the Siena game than any “home” game all year. We won’t even talk about how the Siena game gets more local pub for UA than any regular season game all year- it brings in Alumni for UA from all over the country. But if the powers that be at UA decide its not worth playing the game anymore.. I say don’t let the door hit you in the ass- very little for Siena to gain from this game- they are huge favorites every year- if they don’t win by 20 or more several of the more delusional fans will be upset etc..in short in many ways it’s a no win game for Siena. At any rate let’s hope for a big Siena win where everyone on both sides stay healthy Ha ha The next time YOU bitchslap anyone will be you first time. I am actually surprised you showed up here after getting destroyed year after year. You are dumb even when compared to other sienna fans. Rumor has it that you are so dumb, you applied to sienna and got rejected. Yep very little for LCC to gain by this game. I hope it gets cancelled. I would be curious to see who LCC can convince to play at home every year and obviously love to see the huge hit to the LCC revenue. The other 9 maac teams got sick of giving LCC the home court advantage. It is time UA steps up and does the same. Who knows Bob maybe you'll get your wish... and UA can be content with 1200 fans a game.. And Siena fans will have to be content with how the Saints absolutely dominated the danes on the hardwood.. And don’t forget any UA fan that doesn’t have a ticket… make sure you buy one at the box office or if your out of town you can purchase the live video feed here http://client.stretchinternet.com/client/siena.portal?mode=link&eventId=8148&broadcastType=video#
