Will you attend games before the Jamison deal closes?
 
Between my disgust for the lockout and frustration with the ownership mess, I have zero motivation to spend any money at Jobing.com arena until I have a guarantee the team is staying. And frankly, while October and November were tough, I'm now doing fine without live hockey, and so is my wallet.

What about you Coyote fans? Are you ready to make the 1st game a sellout, or will you wait and see?

I believe that by the 16th, Jamison is finalized. By the 19th we drop the banner and yes, that should be a sellout.

That's fine, but the question is: IF the deal doesn't close by the 19, will you attend?

TeamTippett 01-07-2013 03:22 PM

they already have my STH money so whether it attend or not the money has been spent.

SweYote 01-07-2013 03:22 PM

Probably not.

If I lived in the Phoenix area I would. It also depends on when opening night is too. If its Friday or sat night, I'll be there!

twominutes 01-07-2013 04:30 PM

oh yeah, i am SO there

This. I can't attend a game this year if I wanted to. Soak it up for those of us that cant make it?

SniperHF 01-07-2013 07:34 PM

The only way ownership would affect my attendance decision is if the team was a lame duck and it was known they were moving.

Jamison not closing before opening night isn't changing that at this point. Gotta take it year by year with this disaster :laugh:

Yeah, I'm guessing the Coyotes are going to need every butt in a seat possible. I would have liked to see an appreciable jump in attendance based on the run and the division title, but hur dur, here comes the lockout! The first year will be important for Jamison. If the valley doesn't signal an attendance increase from winning that's a bad sign. Every other team save ASU and UA are sucking right now, so there's that advantage.

I'll be there regardless. I want to be there to see the only achievement this franchise has ever won (in the NHL) raised to the rafters. I want to be there to give an energetic standing ovation for the announcement of Shane Doan. Opening night this year, under these circumstances, is one of my highest priorities in terms of entertainment value, interest and emotion.

I know last time they lost the whole season so teams made more concessions to STH, but I'm curious if we get anything extra for the 1/2 season lost. Frankly with a shorter season I'd like to upgrade my tickets if possible and keep the same financial commitment to the team. I'll definitely be calling my ticket rep when the schedule comes out to figure out what I'm doing with my season tickets.

I've been going the past few years without an owner. I will go until this team packs up and leaves.

Sinurgy 01-08-2013 02:38 AM

To me making a stand over this isn't worth it, if at all possible I will be there opening night for sure!!

Primrose Everdeen 01-08-2013 04:56 AM

Yes, for reasons already listed. They have my STH money anyway, only reason I wouldn't go is if I knew it was a lame duck season, it's not worth making a stand over, etc.

I feel the reverse about the latter, in fact. My decision to buy season tickets, other than the fact that I like going to hockey games, was also motivated by making a stand - and demonstrating that there are people here who want a team.

Rutkowski 01-08-2013 06:19 AM

Live in Sweden so no, I can't. :(

Le JavJav 01-08-2013 08:24 AM

I'll be there.

letbob 01-08-2013 11:31 AM

Absolutely. This is the best hockey played in the world.

Exactly. The highest level of the best sport is being played 40 minutes from my house. Of course I am going to go to as many games as my time and money can afford.

pfp 01-08-2013 01:21 PM

As a STH I've already bought and paid for my tickets and Ii sure as hell intend to use them. :)

Rabbit 01-08-2013 01:30 PM

Hahaha don't get me wrong guys, i understand pride and frustration, but holding out until we get an owner? We haven't had an owner since 2009! It's 2013! I'm used to this. Some of our best years of hockey have been without one.

zz 01-08-2013 02:20 PM

Well, looks to me like the league doesn't need to worry about the lockout's impact on ticket sales! :laugh:

_Del_ 01-08-2013 09:34 PM

Yes. I will watch them in a box. I will watch them with a fox (logo). I will watch them here or there. I will watch them anywhere.

LOL at the random posters coming in and voting no.

I know. What a joke! Should be limited to the regular posters only
