Milwaukee beat Charlotte 6-4. I was glad to see the come back by Milwaukee. This was the second home game in a row where the ref was terrible! Charlotte dumped about 10 Admirals behind the puck and was never called for it. They held and interfered and were never called for it; unlike Milwaukee. One example, in the first period Dalpe dumps Cehlin. Cehlin gets up and Dalpe slashes him. Cehlin moves toward Dalpe and he drops his gloves while Cehlin keeps his on. Both get 2 minutes for unsportsmanlike. That was total garbage by ref T. J. Lexmore! Why are so many AHL refs so bad this season? Just call the game the same way for both teams.

Isn't dropping the gloves pretty much an automatic 5? At the very least it should be 5 for Dalpe and 2 for Cehlin.

Dalpe only grabbed Cehlin, he didn't try to hit him. Dalpe should have gotten 4 minutes. Pick any 2 of 3 penalties, interference, slashing, unsportsmanlike. Cehlin deserved 0 or 2 minutes. Evening up the minutes was an obscenity by Laxmore!

Milwaukee 2 Chicago 0. Chicago is out of the playoffs. Milwaukee has a tie for 8th.

Rochester clinched a spot tonight with a 5-1 win over Hamilton.

Okay Milwaukee, let's have one playoff team that isn't embarrassing.

The Admirals lost 3-2 in OT at home. It was a tough loss after a bad bounce.

Milwaukee drew just 3053 for a Friday night playoff game. Houston, which is losing their team, drew 4159 for their game. What's the excuse this time, people more interested in the Packers' draft picks?

Living up to your antagonist, villain screen name?

That is normal for the first round in Milwaukee. Sad, but true.

They were noisy. Just ask Meltdown Nilstrop!

In 2006, the Admirals averaged 3900 for 11 home playoff games.

But there's always some excuse for Milwaukee's poor attendance, the Packers, the weather, no one cares about the first round, etc. It's all BS. If no one cares about the first round, why even have a team, because getting there is what the season is really all about. Other teams can draw at least close to average in the playoffs. When Lake Erie was in the playoffs in 2011 they averaged over 8,000 for their 4 first round dates. Why? Because the front office was very aggressive in marketing the games. Providence did OK last night. They had the same amount of time to market as Milwaukee, in a smaller market. How can lame-duck Houston outdraw Milwaukee? Do you think they spent a dime to market them, if anyone is left in the front office staff in Texas for them? Do the Admirals do ANY marketing at all? Do they go out in the public and create any awareness for the team and the playoffs? My guess is a big no to both.

What's the point of going after one team for crappy playoff attendance when pretty much all teams have crappy playoff attendance in the early rounds?

And is it really a surprise? This is the last chance for Aeros fans to actually see their team and they are in a market that has a half million more people than our entire state (and no that's not an excuse, that's reality.)

How is it all BS? Look at attendance during Packers season and then look at it after the season is over. The weather can be an excuse when you're driving from the suburbs to downtown in a snowstorm, that doesn't happen all the time but there are at least a couple a year which will cause some people not to go. It's not that no one cares about the first round either, it's something that happens in pretty much every AHL market during the playoffs. It's not just a Milwaukee thing.

Good for Lake Erie. They are the exception, not the rule. Just like Manitoba and Hershey were/are.

Of course they market. The problem is they are limited in who they can market with. The top two rated radio stations in the area are conservative talk stations. That's where you're going to get the most listeners but the problem is they want to talk politics. One of the stations actually does have a sports talk show every weekday, the problem is they are the radio station for the Bucks and Brewers. Since the Brewers are playing and the Bucks are in the playoffs, they broadcast their games instead of the sports talk show so there is no opportunity to get on the air.

They have done radio interviews (radio announcer and team President) on the radio station they broadcast games on but they draw a 1.1 rating which is about 11,000 households. Not a huge following there. And there's another sports station that they used to broadcast their games on that get even worse ratings (.5).

They do commercials on pretty popular FM stations (WRIT and WKLH) but it's difficult to do interviews on stations that play strictly music. They have done interviews on the early morning shows but I question how much of an audience they have.

Frank, it was about 70 F yesterday in Milwaukee. That could be good for fan travel, but not what I would call "hockey weather". There wasn't a lot of walk up traffic that I saw. There is more to do in Milwaukee than Providence. That may be true for Cleveland too. The Admirals do market the team. I hear radio commericials, see newspaper ads etc... Maybe 11 years in a row of playoff hockey is working against the team. Maybe there are only 3000 to 4000 hardcore hockey fans in the Milwaukee area. It is what it is.

I checked, MKE had 1000 fans more than OKC. Rag on them for a while. Have a nice day!
