And need I remind anyone, we've beaten the $iena out of them for a decade, the days of them dictating terms to an institution by orders of magnitude larger than them, with a far better overall athletic department etc. ended like 15 years ago! 

Albany needs to know its place and conversely, Siena needs to know their place.

The fact that you think playing at the TUC is about fans is pretty laughable man...LOL

10k+ fans for a “mid major” game i don’t think is laughable. And again I said it’s just where the game should be played, take away the money aspect that Siena makes from ticket sales. Take down the banners, put up an Albany cup logo down can cover everything Siena up, etc.

never once did I say let’s go play a true road game there where they can profit on everything

Again, hypotheticals. I'm being realistic. If we won our conference the same way we'd be happy right?

Yes I’d be happy but I wouldn’t think we were unbeatable by a crosstown rival.

Most would be unhappy with an Albany first round conference tournament loss and 11 years since last ncaa tournament appearance if it was Albany

Yesterday, I was looking at the number of Siena coaches that have come and go....the one other thing that stood out Siena not in NCAA tournament for 11 years ... right on Bob87

You know how you start losing a fan base? Take even one step back from what Coach Brown demanded. He needs to understand that.

DK is right.  A rising tide lifts all and friendly competition would raise the profile of both schools. Look up the history of MGM studios about how they developed an industry through cooperative competition. 
 

Few people get rich based on principles alone.  That being said there needs to be equity in the final decision.

Well, in order to get to host the championship you'd have to win the regular season championship first. Unless I'm missing something there 🤨

This is not a hot take ..it's reality. If you treat the regular season like it's a scrimmage for 2 weekend in March what do you expect?

Yeah. Missing things. Other seeds have hosted. 2 seeds, even a 4 this year. Shouldn't have to choice regular season or conference tournament. Goal should be to compete for both.

As things go the more wins in conference play ... the better the seed ... higher seed better chance to host the second Saturday in March....example above by Bob87
