    This was on my mind all season It takes away from the atmosphere at RPI games. Reminds me of a AHL/ ECHL atmosphere, not college.

    I visited Lynah for the first time this season and we all have our opinions on Cornell but one thing I noticed and enjoyed was it was all band during warm ups and the game,which is how games at the Field House used to be. I recall leaving a game this year and 2 women confronted Niles about the music and how they wanted to hear more band.

    What's even more moronic is blaring the music over Al as he does the player intros for both teams.I couldn't hear where the kids from the other teams were from, only to hear Axel Rose screaming and I hated that 25 years ago.

    I think you're going to be disappointed if you expect any sort of rebellion from a band that doesn't have any more members that were around pre-headset. This is just how it is for them and most criticism from alumni is (for better or for worse) dismissed as old men yelling at clouds.

    They already consider you as old?

    I mean, two full classes have come and gone since I graduated. I'm not old old, but I'm pretty far separated from the current student body.

    Not at all surprised ...nor will I be when the band fizzles out or is disbanded. Pun intended. Unfortunately it's indicative of the campus wide malaise when it comes fighting the regime.

    You can say the same thing about the Clarkson band. The RPI band played alongside them at Cheel for a song or two earlier in the year, so it's not like our band doesn't know how the others are thriving in their barns.

    My first hockey game at HFH was in 1993, after being a pro hockey fan for over 30 years.
    It was the band that made it a unique and wonderful experience.
    I would love to see them back behind the opposing goalie where everyone can see and hear them. Now when I sit high up in section 9, I can hardly hear the music or see the band and it takes away from the whole experience.

    couldn't agree more, I was surprised how empty the HFH felt without the band there.

    Couldn’t agree more. My 1st game was 05 vs SLU. It was a sellout & we sat in the gray seats by the Zamboni. Stage was behind goal & I was blown away. I had never had so much fun at any sporting event. Today, it’s more entertaining going to Bethlehem HS games.

    First brought Jenny to a game at HFH in 1975 and she felt the atmosphere was downright electric. The place was not filled completely but you had to look hard to find the empty seats. My first game was in 1963 and i cannot remember if any band was there but i do remember it being hard to see from some angles due to the posts that were present and the annoying chicken wire.
    Another vote here for bring the band back down behind the goal! And a vote for restarting a invitational tournament! And a vote to brinkg back the Bee!!! Buzz Buzz

    I’ve stated here and I even told the Colonel when he was AD that they should build a mirror image of Shirley’s palace at the other end but replace the center box with a bandstand. It would have all the benefits of the stage but get the band above the glass. It would create a truly awesome college hockey environment.

    I do remember the poles but not the chicken wire.
    And here’s another vote to bring the band back down behind the goal. They could just build a stage above the glass and place the band there. They wouldn’t have to worry about pucks going into the band with the netting above the glass that they have in place now. I remember a puck going into one of the tubas years ago..
    The tournament and bringing back Swarm are unfortunately pipe dreams. They can’t find a sponsor for the tournament and rumor has it that the kids were afraid of Swarm (though he was my personal favorite).

    I read that too fast. I thought that you wanted to bring back the beer.

    I think that the chicken wire left before the posts.
