Word was there was plenty of them last night, too. And honestly, I think the fights are a big reason the Aces outdraw UAA.

Yup. Didn't JJ start a fight just a few seconds into the game? Such a bush league.

Yup, supposedly right away. Most of those fights are staged, anyway. They know that's what brings people into the stands. Ice Dogs are the same way...hell I think all of minor league/junior hockey is that way.

The fights might be what try the crowds, but I could go to Thursday night at the fights or something of the sort versus paying all of the associated to fees to watch "Ballerinas on Ice". Its a joke that its even called hockey! :mad: I'll stick with the NHL for a true example of professional hockey.

That’s why I have come to the conclusion most of them show up for “Beer & a Fight”

Fight or not, winning helps. I don't say this to be an ***, but if both our schools won on a consistent basis, and won something meaningful, the crowds would be there. Simply put.........................winners win.

Again..........................not to be an arse.......................the Aces win consistently. That goes for both Alaska squads. I know the Ice dogs are only Jr A, but they do not out draw the Nooks even though they fight. Again they aren't pro, but they fight. If oyou want to draw a crowd, win. Simply win. If the Nooks and the Wolves won their respective leagues or finished in the top four every year, they would pack their houses. JMO.

I know you're a Wolves supporter. Call the ECHL what you want, but it is a decent league. Most guys on both our squads will only make it this far. Just cause you're a Wolves fan doesn’t mean you should knock the ECHL. There are the typical fights, but there are some very skilled guys that can, and will make it to the next level (or beyond). A-town just needs to find a happy median between what the Aces and wolves provide. Win, and they will come. Just ask the current Aces, and the Wolves of the early 90's.

Been to a dozen or so NHL games, and they fight. I will be at one in three weeks, and they will fight. I've seen Sidney, Alex, and Evgeni...........................incredibly skilled...................they are protected by big arse goons…………………….who fight. It is a part of hockey. Deep down, even the college fans wish there was a fight aleast once a game.

I have played, and have friends who have played Jr hockey. Most fights are not staged. Not saying some aren't, but most aren't. How many Dogs games do you make it to in a year? Be honest. Most fights are not right from the start. Again not saying some aren't staged.

Wolves fans................fighting or not, winning will plant butts in seats. You guys.........*gulp* have a very good coach, and are *gulp* heading in the right direction............ohhhhhh that pains me to say that...............win, and the Sully will fill up. I am originally from Pittsburgh, and am a Pens fan. I was there when you could get a $15 ticket.........before Sid and Geno, they win now, and no longer can you find a $15 ticket. Knocking the Aces will do no good!

I went to a Pens game couple weeks ago (got $15 ticket, talk about nose bleed) @ the end they only had 13 players left. There were non stop fights.

Just saying it's dishonest. If you can live with that and justify it go for it, but don't tell others to do the same.

What are you the UAA "morals cop" be very careful before throwing stones at glass houses.

I see you didn't deny your suggestion is dishonest. The first step toward recovery is to recognize the problem. So good to see you are on the right track! :D

I wouldn't say that I am not a fan of the Aces because they win, and I fail to see what being a UAA fan has to do with anything. I dislike the Aces because the fans are rude and I'm not a fan of the fights. I have been to NHL games, AHL games, and hockey games of leagues that I don't follow. Out of the hundreds of professional games that I have witness, I have never seen as many fights as at ECHL games. Regardless of who I support in college hockey, I'm just not a fan of what the Aces are selling. It's just my opinion, doesnt mean you have to agree :p

and I won't even begin to deny that winning has a great deal to filling seats. The Aces have done that recently and it shows in attendance. Hopefully with time, UAA can return to a stature similar to the Seawolves teams of the early 90's.

I have been in recovery for about three years, that's when I recognized you as a problem.

and when he fudges on the parking fee...I bet a used couch and some beat up lawn chairs he parks back by the "mini box stores" and does some old school _airbanks dumpster diving on the way to the arena.

Great, there go all my secrets, nanook fans in town I'll be lucky to get a half empty beer bottle, or a half smoked cigarette.

Ye gods, not this crap again about Aces and attendance. give it a rest.

Not sure why everyone thinks we'll do so well in the classic when we're ranked so low in the INCH power poll. #5 Michigan #23 Mercyhurst #30 UAF #38 UAA

I'll be happy if we can get 2 points at home.
