So I read the article today about lower attendance this year so far and many of the comments in the article focused on STH value and the Game Ops being stagnant. I won't get into the STH items but I'm curious to know how many people have complaints about the game ops and marketing and how it relates to your experience. Game ops are essentially the same as they were when the team started. The chili chant is old and who goes to Rooster's for Chili? Giveaways during the season are almost non existent. I can't find a published promotion schedule on the website if one even exists. If there are any giveaways it involves a free t shirt that fits 1 body type. Marketing of the team has been the same for the last few years with no changes. The intermission games are the same. In the article Werenski himself essentially called out the team marketing saying that he and some others want to help build this fan base, they are just waiting to be told how they can help. Even in the early days of the team there were more player appearances for fans. Outside the random celebrity bartender event players are not doing promotion for the team like they used to do. Even the STH appreciation night is restricted to full season holders now. How much of our malaise toward the team has to do with the uncertain future of the "stars" of this team versus going to the arena for the exact same experience we've seen for 18 years? If the team isn't putting any effort into making the game experience better, how can I expect them to put effort into making the on ice product better?
