When you are the organization that makes the change, then, somehow the change is reverted, and, your organization remains after the change, then, it can be observed that your organization was the party at fault.

Meaning, they screwed up and it was all their fault, they made a mistake.

We all knew it was not an AGCO rule because many other facilities including OHL teams did not have that rule. You can't lie to an educated public - in this era laws and rules are published and accessible. The IceDogs and their owners want what's best for the business/fans. If you're waiting for a public apology from SMG better buy the devil some mittens first.

I am glad the IceDogs owners and management were able to prevail. I don't smoke but those that do shouldn't be punished arbitrarily.

All the while we all knew it was a load of BS as there are plenty of arenas in the league that allow re-entry, Did they think we didn't know these other arenas were also in Ontario?

Again, I applaud the move, but stop with the made up stuff. If you're having issues with the way SMG is running the arena tell us the truth. We are not idiots. We've been to other arenas throughout the OHL and know what can and can't be done "legally".
The BS came from SMG, in particular one staffer -- the GM -- who I'll bet ruined the MC entertainment experience for many fans. I'm sure he has learned a lesson from this as he likely thought those of us in St. Catharines are simple-minded small-town hicks, who would fall for any line offered. Not so the case! Personally I feel I am rather worldly; I have traveled outside St. Catharines several times and one time was even out of Ontario !!! :-)

You are correct; it was an SMG policy, not the city or the Ice Dogs.

It was the Dogs that quoted the law and put it up on the scoreboard and announced it in the arena not SMG. I don't doubt for a second that it was SMG behind the BS but you can't say the Dogs didn't have a hand in it. SMG does not control the scoreboard nor do they control what comes out of the speakers on game day.

They should have just said "Arena management does not allow re-entry to the Meridian Centre" and leave it at that. Everyone knew all along it was SMG that had the policy. By quoting the BS alcohol and gaming commission law, it sounded like the Dogs were justifying the policy.

Just to clarify, I have spoken to all the parties and know for a fact: The no re-entry policy is that of SMG... and yes they certainly can control the score board and PA system, they run the place.
