I'd be interested to hear from anyone who's pro Albany whether it be fans, players or admins as to why they'd want to play the game without it being a home and home. I really don't see any value in the series without it being a home and home, but maybe I'm missing something.

Right...P5 obviously but that's it...on what planet would we ever give any MAAC team a home game every single year. Especially a bad program like Siena.

Siena's AD opined that the game should be at the TUC because it is a community game and that the TUC would allow more fans to see the game. This rationale or explanation would be furthered if the scho

without knowing any of the details of the negotiations, a big pat on the back to Mark for his willingness to pass on this game/contract until an equitable offer is on the table ... during our early ye

It's evident UA has passed Siena in basketball and Siena wants to stop the beatings so they are looking for a way out of the series where UA will take the blame for the series ending.

Home and Home or nothing.

All UA has to do is explain that no one in organized sports would accept this type of one-sided arrangement...no one! People will understand. Let Siena go fill the TUC with Bryant or someone like that.

You aren't missing anything and there is absolutely no reason to subsidize LCC. If they want all the home games in the series they Albany should get all the money the games generated and then some :)

That really should not need explaining. Maac bottom feeders should consider themselves lucky to get offered the same contact as Iona has. 

As an aside, I think I read somewhere where a Vermont fan said their series with LCC has ended as well.

Only way I see TUC being feasible is if every other year, UA gets 100% of the cut. Like, every damn last penny. AND we get priority seating/first serve. I'll deal with the Siena floor and banners at that point...but that is the ONLY way.

Not good enough...playing at an unfamiliar arena automatically gives Siena the advantage, like spotting them 2 or 3 points at least.

The fairest way to do this is to figure out what Siena’s average attendance is and then UA gets every buck above that figure for every seat above the figure.  That’s fair. 

No it's not, they fix their attendance numbers to the tune of 4 digits.

It means we get an independent third party to look at the revenue/books 

That will work only if Siena is keeping real attendance figures...I'd have to assume internally they know how many go through turnstiles.

Even with that scenario though Albany is once again going out of their way to benefit Siena. 4,000 people is a decent chunk, it's not like we're talking about a 1,000 seat gym. Really shouldn't be a big deal for it to be played at the TUC every other year. Siena can do their normal pregame stuff downtown and bus people uptown if they want.
