from what i have been told by our owner.... rosters must be finalized prior to the first game.....Idk if they have to be on the website but I assume they need to be turned into the league

When are the Brawlers and Wolves going to put out their Pro and Minor Rosters?

Both of those rosters are out already

The Savage Wolves final roster has not been released yet. What was released was a "mock roster" that was taken off the AIHL site when I was attempting to input our Elite teams players.

Do you have any pre season games?
10-15-2009, 02:18 PM
No, sorry, we do not have any exhibition or pre-season games scheduled.
I also want to get the word out that all of our home games will be free admission. We will still be having give-aways and raffles but you will not have to pay to get in to see us play.

How is your team going to make any money?
10-15-2009, 04:54 PM
There are very few organizations that make money running any of the teams be it AIHL, PIHA or MLRH. We are viewing it as a chance to get as many interested people as possible through the doors. If we were looking to make money we would have charged each player more than the $20 that included 10 hours of rink time for tryouts and mini-camp.

How many fans do you get for your home games?

To be completely honest, last year we did not have many fans at all. Part of that is because of the diminished youth hockey league in our building (which we are trying to help build up) and part because of lack of advertising. We were lucky enough to land a few local sponsors so we decided not to charge admission and to try and draw in as many fans as possible, free seemed pretty reasonable.

We also did the free admission thing last year. It did help to bring more people into the rink. I do not know if we are charging for admission this year but im hoping we do not. Its alot better playing in front of 40 people than 0 even if it costs the players a little more money.

Wolves what was your fan base like? were'nt you guys one of the best teams last year? Also is there not people at your local rink intrested in your team?

Other than friends and family we do not have much of a fan base. When we played out of Extremes! in Bridgewater, NJ, we would pull in 175-325 paying fans per game. That was because it was all local players who worked or played at the rink and played on the team, we had a solid youth hockey league, ran events all season long to give back to the kids and the rink was perfectly set up to hold fans for a game.
A major draw back when you go to see an inline game is sightlines. Most ice venues are built to hold a few hundred people at most inline venues the fans are an afterthought. Its unfortunate that you can list the rinks that are fan friendly - Z-Rink in CT is well layed out, both of the rinks in Scottdale and Pittsburgh, Maryland...thatís about it (that I have seen). None of the current NJ rinks were built/layed out to hold any sort of attendance over lets say 40 people. I don't mean to bad mouth any of the rinks but itís the truth. Who wouldn't want bleacher seating that could hold 200-300 and room around the rink for benches so people could sit up on the glass around most of the rink and not impede the views of the fans in the stands.
