Why do figure skaters keep being brought up, isn´t it hockeyville??? Hockey players only should get tickets! Agree with Turry, give CBS the 600 tickets they would of got if they played in their home rink and the rest should be given out to the rest of the people of NL. I dont think the 20,000 of CBS was enought votes to win the contest.

Come on Woody and wipe the egg off your face. You are first to critize St. John's yet now that you need them to save face you take full advantage. I bet St. John's can run a two hole s*%t house and maybe a three. The new arena should have been a priority and not your travel. For someone who alledges to hate Air Canada you sure lke flying with them enough.

The town of C.B.S. has made an awesome decision to move the game to Mile One. Not only will more C.B.S. residents have an opportunity to see the game, but other Newfoundlander s as well. You will not please everyone!! Ticket distribution is going to be tricky! C.B.S. has 20, 000 residents. Children should come first, along with one chaperone. Congrats to C.B.S. !!!

I agree the people of CBS should get first dibs at tickets, but you have to remember the votes to make CBS "Kraft Hockeyville" cames from Newfoundlanders all over the island and I am sure throughout the whole country. I voted numerous times and I am in St. John's. I think there should be a 1 or 2 day "sale" for CBS residents with a limit of 4 tickets per person. Then open to the rest of the province. Just my opinion!

Get a life James. They could blow the whole $100K on bringing the ice surface and boards up to NHL spec. That would be a total waste. Likely no different for any of the other communities that participated in the contest. They would spend the money doing the same upgrades and the facility as a whole would not benifit. Playing the game in St. John's will allow more fans to take in the game and allow the prize money to be spent as it was intendend.

No John, 600 tickets should go to CBS first,then the remaining should be first come first served.

The ticket distribution should be all organization kids, minor hockey, figure skating, high school hockey be provided with 2 tickets each and then the rest distributed in a random draw for the town.

Yes, Political watcher, you are right. Woody and all the gang want everything FREE of charge. I wonder how much they are planning to give the City of St. John;s for use of Mile One. Probably nothing the way things work in NL. Isn't it great when you can live in one place, pay basically nothing in taxes, drive in and out of St. John;s for free, drive over their streets for free, use their toilets, drinking fountains and everything else for free. Oh, yes they will all tell you they HATE St. John;s. Well if you hate it, do everyone a FAVOUR and KEEP OUT!!!!!!
