Sabres putting a fan imprint on arena

New article in TBN about some of the upcoming changes for the arena/TV/whatnot

http://www.buffalonews.com/sports/sa...icle363953.ece

Some notables:
Quote:
  • They've made plans to change the way fans watch the games, both in HSBC Arena (which will soon be slug-free) and on television (which will soon be home to a pregame show).

    They've reached out to one of the two greatest players in franchise history, and Dominik Hasek will be back this month.

    The Sabres will change the tune for their television opening, going from the Scorpions' "Hurricane 2000" to old franchise favorite "Sabre Dance," performed by violinist Vanessa Mae. Fans can also request songs to hear in the arena.

    The March 19 game also will feature the premiere of a half-hour pregame show on MSG. From then on, every game will have a pregame and postgame show, with analyst Rob Ray joining the team for its road games.

    Countdown clocks will be placed on the concourse television monitors, and a chime or siren will sound when two minutes remain in the break. The latter is reminiscent of theater signals.
I'm excited about a lot of this. Good to see some real changes happening.

Wow. These guys don't **** around, I like it.

This will be the new TV intro then...


Also:

Quote:
"We're looking at a very significant renovation where we're going to be knocking down walls and changing the plumbing and the electrical infrastructure to make this one of the top player facilities in the league," Black said. "We want this to be the place where every player calls their agent, calls their buddies and says, 'You've got to come here. This place is great.'"

This makes me very happy. Pegula FTW.

I wonder if the organ will be more pronounced during games?

And by the way, it sounds like it's only a matter of time before they fix the jerseys. Notice how there's no grey trim on that rug logo.

8 year olds dude.


I suggested that they allow EA NHL to put the goat head jersey in future NHL games. I doubt it has much to do with them, but if its a consent issue then its worth a shot lol.

I just sent my first of a handful of requests/comments. I love the rug, flat out, it didn't NEED to be done, remember that. It's a nice touch. Details details details.

I'm fine with ditching the gray trim/pits but please, please no more jersey changes for a while.

Love the changes listed and responsiveness by ownership though.

It depends who owns the copyright and if they license EA to use the logo, I believe.
Maybe if someone does some digging, they can find out who owns it.
I tried but didn't know the proper name of the logo.

Perhaps the old front office didn't want to license it because it wasn't something they created and they wanted to pretend like it didn't exist.

Montador also touched on the Sabres' new owner. "We are a better team right now because Terry Pegula is our owner now. We have a lot to thank Tom Golisano, Larry Quinn and Dan DiPofi for keeping the team in Buffalo and selling it to a guy who will keep it in Buffalo...There is a renewed energy with the team."

BTW - holy crap that is one expensive carpet!

No more "Rock you like a Hurricane?" This is the greatest news ever. That ish was TIRED.

Pre-game show and renovations... awesome stuff. Pegula not dicking around. Seemingly little stuff like this goes a long way, Terry - thanks!
