no offense, then i cant see how you can even argue the point then. it was louder than many of the playoff games ive been to (much more intense) - and ive been to cup finals games against nj, double ot against the stars when drury scored, van, detroit playoffs and regular season games - ive seen them play some biggies. ill repeat i was blown away by what i saw at the nuggets game. people were out of their seats the entire game screaming on every possesion, it was sensory overload and it was a first round game. the whole ticket price thing plays to my side, if the nuggets became a contender people could afford to go. of course the avs have better attendance, theyre a better team. avs attendance is sluggish of late, and not a good flag to wave right now.
dont know how you can highly doubt anything if you dont know much about it.
And I've been here for over 30. Sorry the Nuggets aren't anywhere close to where they used to be during the Thompson-Moe-English era and they died right right before the population explosion. The basketball fanbase has never gotten out of it dormancy for long enough to reestablish itself.
As for crowd noise, who the hell could hear anything over the music at the Pepsi Center blasted at 220 decibels.
But compare how the lower levels of hockey do in comparison to basketball and you'll find your answer. College hockey easily trumps college basketball and the Eagles and Rage have a bigger following than the 14ers.
From the blog of the Swift Current Broncos play by play guy Jon Keen who apparently had a chance meeting with Joe at the golf course in Swift Current
He was interested to find out when Broncos camp opened and what their prospects for this season looked like. Of course, the big question surrounding Joe is whether he's going to play another season in the NHL.
The reporter instinct in me broke into that aspect. Safe to say he's going to likely give it another go. Why not? He's still near the top of his game.
That was his response when I asked him when he had to report for Avalanche training camp. You don't think he's coming back? Sounds like a sure bet you'll see him for at least another season.
also sundin is being linked to teams with some of the largest fan bases in toronto, montreal, vancouver and the rangers. its only natural the media gives the fans what they want. do you think avs fans wanna hear everyweek that sakic is still either going to play in colorado or retire?
