Just read in the paper that the Team 1040 will be broadcasting all the Giants games. I'm really looking forward to this team. They may suck for the first few years, but if you've ever been to a junior game you know what I mean.
I agree. Watching a junior game up in Prince George last Christmas, I was extremely impressed with the hitting, speed, and intensity of the game.
Despite being a student, if prices are similar to or less than Whitecaps games, I might take in couple. Besides, I always loved that old building.
Once less finanically stable individuals (i.e. those who don't live in Campbell's riding) see the product, I think they'll switch over. However, interest in the Canucks will remain. Bums in the seats, though, may not.
One of the options I was going to put in the poll was," It depends on how the Canucks are doing." I think that if they tank it this year, then you will see more people going to see the Giants, but if they do well, then thier attendence will probably go up.
I saw some Blazers games in Kamloops a couple years ago. That is quality hockey, and your right about the Colusium(sp?), what a great place to watch games.
Well, the overwhelming consensus is...... the Giants will affect the Canucks attendence a little. I guess we'll see. The Giants started training camp today. We have looked into group rates for their first game against the Kamloops Blazers, and if anyone is interested in going there will be some info posted here soon. Finally, the WHL has come back to Vancouver!
For the record, I falsified my date of birth in my profile to exaggerate my age. This of course was all in an effort to be taken seriously, by giving my persona "Willy" a sense of wisdom and knowledge that can only come from 3 decades of experience.
Truth be told, I'm only 12. Want proof? Ask city and wallace, we're all classmates at the North Shore's prestigious Dumbfcuk Elementary.
As you've seen, my fellow Dumbfcuks have made absolutely no effort whatsoever to be taken seriously.
Maybe I am missing something here.........but aren't the fcukin tickets less that $15.00 !!!! How much more do we want? I am sure that the Giants want to establish a fan base and all but I don't think they should be expected to give discounted ticket prices like the Canucks might do for large groups ect.......
