    Yeah... They like to be as vague as possible. A lot people have had similar complaints but these people seem like they know the best way to do things and just don't seem to take negative feedback...

    I was told by the person who took over for Stacy that the homecoming game is organized by some other group on campus, and that he didn't have anything to do with it, he had to wait for that group to decide which seats they were going to make available for sale. He did not say this but I assume that since it is homecoming it's alumni relations that is running the BCA game. Whichever group it is, they took forever to open up the ticket sales this year and they have blocked off certain sections for VIP year after year that do not get filled by legitimate ticket holders - the seats behind the goal have remained empty because they were reserved for VIP that didn't show up - and they only fill up when people with other tickets move to them. One year they stayed empty for the entire first period.

    We were told that as season ticket holders we would get first dibs on the seats when they opened up but that never happened. I waited for the email to come and never even thought to double check. If I hadn't seen someone's post on here that they were on sale I probably would have missed out on getting my usual seats.

    Re: RIT Tigers 2017 / 2018. Is time to go out and capture some prey!

    I had recently purchased tickets for Saturday's game online, and was surprised to see there was a "free will call" and "hockey will call" that cost $3. Both were available, and those who know about my fiscal frugality would know which one I took. Is there actually a difference between the two, other than tricking people into giving more money to the college?

    I don't remember seeing both of those when I looked into ordering extras for that game a few weeks ago (wife is an RPI alum that doesn't normally go to RIT games with us). There was a will call option and an email option then. Not sure what the difference between the two will calls is.
    But if you wanted to skip ordering and just buy at the door, you could have. The game will likely not be even close to a sell out.
    Can't we all just get along?

    I bought at the door the last time we played there (Black Friday 2012 IIRC so it was Ritter), but I bought them early in the day, I guess the game sold out (even though it didn't look like it, maybe because of the break), and considering I have to be in upstate NY in the beginning of the day and head to WNY for the game later, I didn't want to take any chances. It's good to know about how attendance is at the new place in case we end up making this matchup a bit of a regular occurrence, especially with y'all now in the Liberty League for other sports.

    I don't believe RIT bought up tickets (to their own event?). That would be a bit odd.
    I do believe that there were sections set aside for the visiting teams in the past. Since fans of the teams we have been playing aren't likely to travel to play against an AHC team, regardless of the arena, and they all have D-I football teams playing the same day, those seats didn't sell at all.
    I do think this year's crowd was much smaller than any of those games. Nowhere near being sold out.
    Having not won this game recently plays a part, I'm sure. The fact that last year's team had such a disappointing finish didn't help much, either.
    Maybe they need another FF run to bump the interest in the team back to 2010 - 2011 levels

    Ritter tickets were much tougher to find, even when the students were on break. The GPC hasn't sold out more than a few times in its history to date. It's nice to have all the freedom knowing tickets are usually available. It would, however, also be nice to go back to having a full barn more often, especially when playing bigger OOC opponents or important / playoff conference games.

    p.s. I remember that Black Friday (2011, actually) game because I had to leave town suddenly (death in family) that week, so my wife had to go to Ritter without me. We're probably better off that way, especially since the wrong team won
    Unfortunately, she brought one of her fellow RPI alum friends with her and they weren't impressed at all with the "infamous" Ritter Arena crowd. I had to explain that for the most part, the students make all the difference.

    Here's a fun game. See how many factual errors you can spot in the third paragraph of this article: http://www.democratandchronicle.com/...ern/762826001/

    (Fun fact: there was another error, in the second paragraph, in the print version, but it appears to have been fixed online.)

    I'm pretty sure it hasn't sold out at all. The highest attendance I found was 2/1/15 at 3695, with a capacity of 4300 for hockey.

    To my recollection, it sold out once when your president put the challenge on that he would dye his hair orange if it sold out.

    My apologies, you are correct. 10/24/15 against Colgate - not sure how I missed it. http://collegehockeystats.net/1516/boxes/mclgrit1.o24

    RIT absolutely does buy and sell tickets to itself. Any of the games where they welcome various RIT groups to the game (such as KGCOE staff, or GCCIS faculty) all of their seats were purchased by those departments from the box office via chargeback. It's a shell game. I don't know why homecoming would be any different...and if you were in the building last year you'd know their claim of a sellout were completely laughable.

    That's not the type of thing we're talking about here. Those types of organizations function relatively independently of one another and finance their activities on their own, for the most part. We all know how frustratingly silo-ed university departments are (at least at RIT). Even within the same building you sometimes have to go to multiple offices to get answers to questions because none of the departments ever communicate with one another. I believe that it truly isn't a shell game in cases like this.
    I was referring to RIT Hockey, the GPC, and / or the RIT athletic department purchasing tickets (that are not going to be used) to their own game just for the sake of calling it a sellout. I find that somewhat unlikely. What would they stand to gain from that, aside from potential slight increase in advertising revenue (if any at all)?
    Can't we all just get along?

    I could see it happening. They get to call it a sellout, list attendance as 10,556, and keep the streak of sellouts alive, if they were close to selling out.

    Bad news for the Tigers- Per Coach Wilson in the Sportszone Preshow, Brady Norrish tore his ACL again in practice this week and is out, may not be back.

    Barring injury, this may be Short's last Tiger appearance. He's been behind the play from the opening faceoff. Beat clean on the 1st, a truly horrendous 2nd, and certainly a stoppable 3rd, and a little fortunate it's not worse. Night and day in terms of reading the play and tracking the puck compared to Drackett last weekend. I'm honestly surprised they didn't pull him at the time out.

    The radio guys assert Short isn't getting much help. They played great in front of Drackett -- very few quality looks for Northeastern.

    Watching the stream in the first period, lot's of mishandled pucks and turnovers in the tiger zone.

    That's tough on any goalie
