I would've gone for sure, but i wanna keep my first Bell Center experience for the Habs (Dec 4!!). Too bad the Dogs' game is Nov 30th.

Yeah there's one game per year and it's way enough it seems, if there would be like 15k people or more every game they'd play here more often, but the crowd is about th same as in Hamilton so it doesnt really wort playing more games here.

They cant even come close to 10 000 a game and its their team.
You do realize the average attendance for the last 3 seasons in the AHL is 5,565 right? Hamilton sold out season tickets in 3 days for a team that didn't even exist when Balsille was planning on buying the Predators.

Um....unemployment went down in Quebec in October. The economy added 500 jobs. We're in a financial crisis, not a jobs crisis.

It's called having something else to do during the weekends. Like taking my son to his hockey games (they play in the evenings being bantam), like taking my daughter to her synchro swimming training camp. And taking care of the other half. No time for AHL hockey. And I assume it's like that for most Montrealers (even if I'm not one).

There's no crisis. Stop with the panic stuff. It's a financial market related crisis. Nothing else. Us, in the media sales business, are the first ones to experience a crisis when there's one. And right now, there's nothing except people panicking because they can only read headlines. Our media sales are up by 7% in November. Far from being a crisis. And our December projections are on target.

The crisis in Canada, specially here in the Ottawa-Gatineau area, is not even close to coming right now. I've talked to René Vézina, a prominent economic analyst with le journal Les Affaires, and he believes Canada won't feel the bulk of a recession (if there's one) before this summer. The media is harping about a financial crisis, but it's a market related crisis as of now. It could all change, but not for now.

I've been to the shopping centers here and elsewhere and, believe me, there's nothing going. The shops are full.

As Archie once said to Edith, you got no control over the goings on in your house do you ?

You guys really missed the point it's not about having something else to do. They could sell 35k tickets every game if there were enough seats for Montreal Canadiens and they cant sell 10k for 1 Bulldogs game.

I agree there was no advertising, but financial crisis has little thing to do when the ticket price is the same as a movie ticket. I dont think people stopped going watch movies in bunches cause of the financial crisis.

OMG, to buy online, they charge $9.25 per ticket for services fee. Beside buying ticket online and at Centre Bell, could we buy via phone ? Do you know the phone number ?
Or is there any other website selling ticket ?

Thank you.

Hamilton is mid-pack in AHL attendance, but I can give you two major reasons.

1- A lot of people in Hamilton feel they deserve a NHL club and won't support anything less.

2- You drop Montreal's farm team in the heart of LeafNation, what did you think was going to happen?

Picture the Toronto Maple Leafs farm club moving to Laval Quebec. How many people would be at those games?

There are plenty of habs fans in Hamilton, and I know plenty of Leaf fans that go to Bulldog games. Look at the Marlies. They are the Leafs farm club IN TORONTO and the Bulldogs have better attendance.

........... and your point is?

Unlike the person I first quoted I'm saying the Bulldogs numbers aren't that bad. Your Marlies comment is a good comparison.

The person I quoted asked why there isn't 10,000 at every game, I simply stated two of the biggest reasons.

Don't believe the hype about southern Ontario being such a great hockey region. A great Maple Leaf region? Yes. But a great hockey region? No, plenty of failed and/or failing teams can attest to that.

They really should have advertised this game better. Like if you want to see a winning product, 2nd in it's conference and 2nd overall in GF. And especially after watching such a depressing game light the one tonight, watching the game on Sunday will be like a breath of fresh-air.

I'd love to go to a Bulldogs game but the AHL left Halifax 15 years ago.
