DOH! :001_tongue:

(sorry, any chance I get to dump on Brampton I have to take - as they were the reason I can't put nice photos up on the site anymore )

I used to be allowed to use my digital SLR with the nice telephoto lens to get good actions shots, at our games. "Technically" I wasn't supposed to be cause it was against OHL policy - only accredited media can use those cameras at games. I was given permission by the Icedogs to use it until "a situation arose". Leave it to Brampton to create that situation. I was planning on going to Brampton to watch the Icedogs/Battalion play, and emailed the Brampton office to see if I could get permission to use my digital SLR at their rink. They didn't bother replying to me - but they DID call the Icedogs office and notify them that I shouldn't be using my camera at the games here, because it's against OHL policy. So.. I got a phone call from the IceDogs saying I couldn't use my digital SLR anymore. So, no more good game photos from me.

Although, after inquiring with the OHL about this, I got 2 separate responses - one saying that I had to be an accredited media photographer to use it, the other saying that generally I had to be an accredited media photographer but the Icedogs COULD however grant that sort of permission within their own building. So I asked the Dogs office about this but was told they couldn't. So it was a real whirlwind for me during that time, hearing different things from all sides.

In the end it game down to Brampton seeing the photos Icedogfans.com, then Brampton telling the Icedogs to tell me my camera priveledges were revoked. The team's official photographer said he didn't have any problem with the photos, the office knows they were completely NON commercial and just used on the site, so I don't know where the harm was being done, or why the OHL has that policy as long as the team, team photographer, and everyone else is ok with it. Maybe Brampton's office was just angry because IceDog fans have more heart and passion for the game than their fans, and are willing to put forth the time and energy that everyone in these forums do. Kind of Brampton's way of saying "our fans wouldn't do that on the internet for our team - so we don't want fans of other teams to have the ability to do it either" Waawaaawaa

Maybe some decade in the future, the internet will finally be recognized as media, and sites like this can qualify for the proper credentials. :sad2:

Wow. That's pretty petty on Brampton's part.

But doesn't membership require you to be part of a newsPAPER ? I think any local paper would qualify as being an accredited media outlet (I don't think the OHL requires being a member of the CNA). But if the CNA accepts online web sites, hehe, that would be nice :wink2:

Niagara rank each category2nd15th16th7th15th


Niagara's average attendance has increased from 2,419 to 2,492 during December. This report includes only the sellout versus Sudbury on the 30th.

I will be keeping track of every team's post Christmas attendance as well, as I have noticed a general increase in attendance in games after Christmas.

Good to see a large surge in the Niagara attendance. Since the second lowest attendance of the year, of 2,168 of game 14, attendance has been, sequentially, as follows:

#15 - 2,382
#16 - 2,424
#17 - 2,705
#18 - 2,832
#19 - 3,145
#20 - 3,145
#21 - 3,008

very interesting, thanks
hopefully the attendance continues to to stay high for the 2nd half. The Soo should be a sold out game on the 17th I would think.

I believe the 27th v sarnia will be close to a sell out for sure. Depending on how the team does, looking at the second half schedule, there is a potential for a large number of sell outs.
