    I seem to hear ads on the radio all the time. I also know for a fact that the players are out in the community multiple times a week and more than any other team in the league. They are required to do so. I don't think I've ever seen a team with this much talent and this much community involvement so criminally under supported. Maybe the new rink that is going to be a wonderful facility for the area will help. The one they are in now is apparently too old, too cold or too uncomfortable, but everyone is dead set against the new building. But then again, that's the town of Truro, what more should be expected, really.

    The point being, they had 425 people show up, give all the hot chocolate and coupons out you want, they can't draw the fans, and thats the data that counts. Look at better ways to connect with fans, your the number two team in Canada and you draw less then a pee wee rep team. Take a look inside the box, your failing.

    You should think or maybe even collect some data before you speak. Not only did they slash ticket prices for the event, they also had the town handing out free hot chocolate and coupons for local businesses. On top of that they let anyone under the age of 12 in for free. FREE! Maybe instead of being so critical without doing any research you should have done something that you and the rest of the town clearly fails to do and get out and support a great product featuring six local players - all of whom played on Saturday. But that would be too much to ask, wouldn't it?

    Once again another lack of promotions by Bearcats PR staff. All these people in Truro for the Santa Parade and ne ticket deal or trying to intise new fans to come to the game. Stu better keep donating cash as a team rated very close to the bottom of their league for fan support is scary thinking about them at the new Civic Center. When you average under 500 fans in this league,(425 on a Saturday night) you done something wrong and the public have taken notice over the last few years. Maybe like the Civic Center naming announcement, you misjudged your public support and have the same cocky view as the Undewear Guy" Public, who needs them"
