Those Sweaters were nice.

If Hartford could have sustained a team winning or other wise they would still be up there. As much as Hartford has grown the past 8 to 10 years it's still amongst the smalliest cities in the Country.

I remember going up there for the 1st time in the early 80's the city was somthing like 8 square blocks big

Thats not a major metropolis city, thats more like a mom & pop neighborhood. It's population is barly 125,00 people, it just could not surport the team by itself, it needed the help of the sourounding communites which was still not enough, so what happens ownership pulls back & holds onto the money, the fanbase suffers & shrinks. How is that Shanny's fault??
