Siena Contract ... Basketball

Of course $iena just had a home-and-home with Vermont.

 

For many years the Big Five in Philly played all their rivalries at the Palestra and split all the revenues evenly after arena expenses were paid. They don't do that any more, though.

96 I have to disagree to an extent:

["And to be honest, no way they are changing the court or colors for the game, HUGE dollars for a court...like in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more (I worked at the TUC when they got a new court back in the 90's, and it was in the low hundreds of thousands)."]

 

While I am sure you might be right about the overall floor cost; but note that floor is totally portable and is assembled and disassembled in pieces before/after every hockey or other event. Not that I am recommending this, but it would seem possible to to swap out a couple offensive sections for generic pieces. Now, as I said I am not recommending changing the floor as in reality I agree with MsGD, play the game @ SEFCU (and who cares if any $iena fans come or not). In the years not @ SEFCU let's see if $iena can fill the TU on its own. The alternative of a fair contract with seats and locations and money split 50/50 would of course be acceptable {but nothing less}. However, it certainly would be fun/interesting to have the game @ SEFCU every other year.

Just thought about this and it may have been mentioned in the past but what about a true neutral floor like the Glens Falls Civic Center? That is if SEFCU ends up being off the table, which I hope it isn't.

Floor pieces are huge dollars....and generally don't fit in. Believe me, I've played on enough portable floors. Who gives a $iena about the floor. It's all about the Benji's...

Agree the floor as ugly as it is isn't a big issue . Just curious through when the women's sweet 16 is here if the NCAA will do something to make it look better :)

Obviously I would prefer a home game as well. I could live with an even split of tickets or the game being canceled .

As someone who has seen various Danes teams play in 85 venues I have seen them play many teams far superior to lcc and in many venues better than the knick :)

I agree, who really cares about the floor. Only commented about the floor being in pieces to reinforce it really is a NON issue. Just stating that IF it was an issue there are things which can be done. The only important thing is getting a HOME game and/or an equitable contract.

For the longest time, I just wanted the game and didn't care how it was played. UA needs to grow a bigger set and demand that at the minimum it is considered a road game for both teams in the next contract - thus counts in neither season ticket package - or it needs to be a contract with an even number of years and it is a home game for each team every other year - giving UA season ticket holders the best seats in UA years. Keep it at TU for the fans.

 

The $aints played at VT last year. Silly that the Catamounts have a better deal with $iena than we do...

Everyone playing LCC has a better deal than we do because every other school would laugh in their face if they ever suggested anything less than a home and home series

I'd like a 50/50 split in money. I'd also like a better seat.

 

But watching their fans leave with bowed heads, with two minutes left- priceless.

 

It's like every year they bow their heads in respect! I know they think they have the game this year in the bag...clearly they will be a pretty good. If UA beats them again this year, the fan-base may not recover.
