THEY have completely blown it, dropped the ball, call it what ever you want. This organization just doesn't seem to get it. They should have/could have organized the biggest outdoor "party in PG in years for Monday afternoon/evening. They had four+ full days to set up (after having pre-planned the logistics of course) a massive "tailgate" party. Should have had bbq chicen, brats, dogs, chilli, maybe rotisserie a pig or two. Set up a couple of big tents, live band, clowns, face painters for kids (or adults), sell souvenirs, etc. I would have loved to have them set up all along the entrance to the Multiplex so when the buses arrived there could be several hundred(thousand) people cheering or heckling the teams as they drove up around 5:00. They just seem unable to find the desire to truly reward, inspire, motivate, or create really positive memories for the fans of PG (it does not ALWAYS have to be about the hockey). The open house was fantastic...what is wrong with building on the momentum that created? I had better not hear whining about money here because they would be fairly close to grossing close to $100,000 that last playoff game on ticket sales alone, let alone Monday's. Sorry, but I almost cry at times to see such a poor marketing job done on such a valuable, treasured commodity. As always...GOOOOOOOOOOOOO COOOOOOOOOOOGS!!!!

just let the kids play the game and enjoy this time of the year and the great hockey! Forget about those clowns, ie: Fat Dallas and Rick and channel your energy somewhere else! This isn't the time of the year to be giving it to them, we all know they are screw-ups, but hey, the crowds are good again, we knew they would be if the team acutally did something and the city is having fun. Yeah, they could've had some big bash/bbq or whatever, but believe me, that's the least of what we need around here right now. Perhaps if we continue on in this playoff run something could be planned and some fun could be had. Maybe 94X or whatever should be planning something like that and having a good time, but it is only the 2nd round!

Who cares about the management? The players are playing for themselves and you Cougar fans. Dallas, Brodsky etc have nothing to do with this. Thank Schoeneck a very unlikely source for making his boys believe in themselves.

People run down Cougar fans about being bandwagoners, well uhh how many years did you guys pack the Multiplex through crap after crap? I think people forget there is only so much people can handle. I say good for you Cougar fans for filling that building again, as its the players who deserve it NOT Brodsky and his clown wagon.

Wouldn't this suggestion be better directed to the

Thousand or so fans who make up the Cougar Fan Booster

Club? This is their cities Team and as die hard fans

this is their moment to shine....They do it in other

cities for Hockey, Football, Baseball etc,etc, etc

Why Not Prince George ?????

You should really try to be more positive, lol. Just thought it was funny that you were being accused of negativity for a change. Normally you are the one that comes to the rescue of everything that is Cougar.

Don't sweat it, we can still get drunk, wait for the buses and throw empty beer bottles when they get here, that way they'll definitely know they're in P.G. Just kidding everyone, I know nobody would throw beer bottles, they would just leave them in the parking lot as usual.

on this point. They have done a better job of marketing the product this year, but not good. Why wouldn't they want to take advantage of this wave? It IS important to the long term feelings this community (season's ticket holders past, present, and future)has towards the organization. Spoil the fans a bit, while they are excited. They WILL remember the good times, and how they were respected, when there are bad times. For the LONG term SUCCESS (not just viability) of this business, it makes all the sense in the world to give back, ESPECIALLY at the right times...and this is the best opportunity they have had to make an EXTREMELY positive impression in almost a decade. GOOOOOOOOOO COOOOOOOOOOOOOGS!!!

in this particular case...many in PG feel this particular organization owes more back to the fans that supported them through the many "lean" years they had to endure. I agree that a "booster club" could organize things like this, but there has to be a good team over a fairly long time to develop a decent booster club so again, in this case, it would fall onto the organization's shoulders to reach out to the community they are "so thankful for".
