Guessing there wouldn’t be many people who would suffer through seven years of losses and then with constant lobbying get a new arena built which has turned St. Catharines once eyesore of a downtown into a bustling entertainment district some nights ... and catapulted the close to the bottom in attendance Dogs into a top three club in attendance... also not many teams actually increase their attendance every year in a new barn once the bloom has fallen off the rose.

Gotta take the good with the bad as far as I’m concerned ...

Who here remembers how things went in Niagara last time with absentee out of town owner Rick Gay? *drops 🎤 *

True that...
I still say the single most important thing that Burke did was stick to his guns and market this as a regional team.
No other previous owner here or in the Falls did that.
