6287 fans = $133,347 1100 fans = $23,331 wow what a difference. Dan, if it wasn't for the townie players the west teams wouldn't have a team. Don't turn it in to a townie-baymen rant, I'm glad the boys from st. john's play on our team, if they didn't we wouldn't have to worry about a herder. We waited 30 years for it to return to Grand Falls. The Caribous and Cataracts have not kept sr. hockey alive. Again, it was 30 years between herders in Grand Falls. the Deer Lake Red Wings, Southern Shore Breakers, Flatrock Flyers, Conception Bay CeeBees, La Scie Jets..........etc kept sr. hockey alive when the teams in the 80's paid their players too much. Much like today.

Hey Lenny, if you and the rest of the townies want to see the Herder, get your own team. Losers, you wouldn't win anyway.

Dan: The people in Grand Falls certainly complain a lot. Grow up, they have decided where the Herder will be played. Get over it! Cats Fan is 100% correct!

It's disgusting that HNL will not let these teams play for the HERDER in their own rinks, if they make it. HNL has turned their backs on hockey fans in Clarenville and Grand Falls-Windsor, the very people who have kept Senior Hockey alive in the two towns. HNL has made a complete farce of the Herder, forcing hockey fans to travel for hours to watch "their team", play a home game. Jack Lee wants to show case the HERDER, mission accomplished, by the time this "joke" makes its way across the country.

Mile One Holds 6287 not sure where you get 6600 as the building don't hold that much rooM

Mile One sold more tickets on day one of sales than the joe byrne would've sold for 4 sellout games. Almost 5000 tickets for games one and two were sold, and the Joe Byrne holds 1100. If you want to pay the players the money they are getting, you have to generate the revenue from somewhere. If not it will be 1989 all over again. At $21.21/ticket, a mile one sellout (approx 6600 tickets) = roughly $140,000. At $21.21/ticket a Joe Byrne Sellout of 1100 tickets would equal $23,331. Grand Falls would have to sell tickets at $127 each to equal the same revenue. I'm a cats fan and this is obviously beneficial to all teams.

Cats and Clarenville in the Herder finals. Clarenville has a new state of the art building and Joe Byrne had a $3 million upgrade.....but the games will be played in St. John's and Corner Brook. Sounds like a Newfie joke to me. With Jack Lee at the helm....what else do you expect?
