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

NO ONE will buy that arena without a professional franchise. No legit professional franchise is coming to Albany. Do the math.

Yep. We can't support a professional team. AFL has tried (and is currently trying again) and failed. The AFL is a joke...I was excited to hear of a new Albany team until I found out the league like 4 teams because like 3-4 others were broke or taking 2-3 years off from playing lol. #JOKE

With the lacrosse mania in the region, i wouldnt be surprised if the NLL comes sniffing around.  Of course, that's not exactly major, but they do draw upwards of 10k a game in some places.

We had the Albany Attack from 2000-2003 in the NLL. Also failed. Granted Lacrosse is probably WAY bigger now, 15 years later...

This area is terrible in supporting their LOCAL sports teams. If you aren't the Jets, Giants or Yankees, you'll get little to no support here. Even the Mets don't have as strong a following as you'd think 'round here.

That probably has to do with the fact that it's the Mets...#painfulmusingsofaMetsfan

I keep saying it... We are sports snobs in this area. We have enough disposable income as a region according to multiple census stats to support a major program, but the people won't go unless it is top level. They won't support a minor league team. Major programs would never come here unless we showed enthusiasm for the minor league programs. It's a chicken or the egg problem.

I am adding a comment here that I added elsewhere concerning the  women's roster.... It is time date to update the men's basketball roster for 2018-2019..same reason: adds clarity - gives people a bit of comfort at a time of "turmoil".

Is there any word on the continuation of the ALBANY-Siena series?

It's been discussed on the board ad nauseam... consensus is we don't care unless it is 1 for 1, home and home. If it's anything other than that, it either shouldn't be renewed or be 2 at SEFCU for every 1 at TUC until the series is even for number of home games.

We played 4 maac teams last season. I would expect some of the series will continue at the home of the team that was the visitor in 17-18. The one I am most interested in is the one against the maac champion Iona. 

Whether the bottom of the 4 is ready to compete at Albany , I don't care. 2 or 3 maac teams in a season is enough for me. I much rather travel to see a real MAC team play do curious to the date of the expected return get to Kent State
