Rolled down and I know scroll down keeps rolling none of -- any walking around I'll buy -- beer that's. But I let's go and get some calls and for after -- 803. 0550 to join us John you know with the black on WG yarder right. Our market and job.

Make all this work we don't have we'll sell tickets were not business so we really appreciate your business one energy -- calls and emails this one's a pretty easy milieu do the rope line experience again. Yes we're gonna do that I got to figure out a way to activate that for the first and second emissions though. Because if you buy ticket to this week you get to do pregame we also have the opportunity to probably run through another six the plus people game so that. Might get some passes out -- an -- randomly from the field for a few weeks that things like delegate people down -- it's awesome you've done well it's a great -- -- we were among other adding it's I think fans would eat that stuff up -- it's very very unique -- to see them walk out like that. Neal erupt next year with Ted and the sabres president WGR go ahead. Daniel. I called up before Ali above the bring enough velocity -- -- covering two Perry street every call that. One favorite sit -- surprised if it were wondering how to -- people sick and of course from the hotel to the other read. For the letter of the parties in the plaza and I'll let that would be a great idea I think if you covered up like Fremont street in Vegas. I think -- I think it's a a great idea. And the other thing that's kind of similar to that. Just in terms of being covered if you've been the patriot place I was there for the first time. Where they have some of the shopping areas it's it's partially covered with glass. What we're gonna be able to do though whenever we have the Harbour -- project is you'll that'll be physically connected to our building. So in terms of getting to those ranks in and around you know they'll be ways of doing that without going into the elements. Terms of covering up the plaza probably won't do that. Just -- we might have other longer term plans for that and you know -- this kind of falls into the category. That I tell people very blessed with theories. Passion and his resources that I can do. Anything I want but I can't do everything I want to like I have to pick and shoes but I really appreciate that thought the same thing. 8030550. Got to align open if you wanna get in with a question for Ted black Mike you're on WGR with the Red -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Political question -- the upper level on three under section. You look up Erica that will send Iraq while. There and it went net future to. Actually be summed up there as far as. I don't know it just it just looks looks cheap it compared to other areas. And terms of -- cleaning it up or I'd think you mean like murals and he's I like that by signing anymore. But yeah we talked about that in. Internally and we haven't really done anything with the -- you go to Montreal I think they have. Portraits are black and white pictures of all the alumni I kinda like that we have really. Decided on that might that your your thinking same way we've been. And and you know I don't disagree with you at all that they don't have an immediate plans to do. -- I think that's one of the things that I know I've liked that you guys took over -- down the hallway into the locker room at the idea of and the statues India and and anything that alumni the idea of the history of the franchise pictures. Memorabilia anything I just I think that's always great yeah the stats if you haven't been down to see the statues yet they. We're very very proud of those though art artists that did -- to them. Just an. Unbelievable job when I first saw the photograph that was gonna that was gonna inspire and actually can't panic as I thought people are you gonna understand what's going on here because Renee -- -- one hand on the stick can. But the but the way he put that together. With the with the frank provider or a VP of creative services. Demonstrated what we're in the photograph is right below and and and what the depiction is they did a fantastic job and in the -- pillars behind. Those are still on sale of the plaques it's a hundred dollars. And just so fans know too that this you know that that's not a money grabs the plaques -- a hundred dollars I think are hard costs are about 26 dollars and the net is. Donated a 100% to the -- foundation. 8030550. And we're going Q Bruce next round with a black you're on WGR. All are you up. I don't know -- good receiver reporting bad. Flu Opel. Uniforms. We took advantage driving. And the -- about a verse in the end chain me up given you are seeing me out of the -- emerged. All that. Emerged. And Younis. We will have a new third Jersey for next season we're still working on final designs that that probably won't be released until summer. As I say that you. And probably -- health anyway but. But -- it if it won't look like what you're envisioning. I think that of the rest of the jerseys are gonna remain that way and they are. And from time to time the league does special events and do these retro. Jersey so there may be opportunities to to showcase what. The dangers that the -- is discussing. Skoda Ed next up here on W your -- your -- black or never to question. And lecture. -- caller. Here sure it. Let it that's why -- We're all I am. An outside your opening night get out. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I am wiped out all of it or. Wait hot out. -- -- not all the work we are out all of our expectation that. Players. All the good beta -- -- short -- But it pork or rely. Aaron that we have no choice but there. And I'm a couple of I went over. -- don't -- how to operate it picked up. I maturity that -- -- at all. At what I'll I'll. I'll property while a simple art. Well yeah. It got -- right power -- money. Yet. Bought into it. -- All right -- That's and that's I have -- Irish and getting now I can't sit down and any better than on the way headset it you know I'm glad the masses behind this too and I'm glad we're gonna drop the -- this weekend. In and it doesn't just apply the lockout labor problems. Of people are sick as -- that stuff they they just don't wanna hear about it and they and they just get pissed at both sides. And a pox on both houses and and -- -- right and any probably is expressing the views of a lot of people is. You know don't take us for ground it. And we feel like we're being taken for granite. I think it applies whenever a team you know like this one was in and the penguins when my teams in bankruptcy and have to read every single day about how much team how much the -- team lost or whether they're going to be here. At least. I'm really fortunate that it was with the way Terry runs things is we don't have to have a conversation about the sabres finances. -- gonna run the team the way he wants -- on the team. And we don't need to have a scorecard on on how well are we do or don't do financially and he's running it the way he wants to run it. -- as a right people you know people are sick of Reading about the business they wanna focus on the box scores in the sports section not see this crap in the business section TBA. Does it affect you guys. Yes no doesn't matter run in this that our business will both say no matter what happened with the new CBA and clauses in all the different most important thing to me was was ten years that's the thing that I kept saying this and it. When I heard it originally. I don't know who propose. When it was proposed rather you know things like a three year term or four year term. That was you know that's the that's the thing that horrified me because if you would have a three year CBA for example in any sport. You're one would be messed up here because -- Like this year this is not a normal years -- year one would kind of be. Screwed up here because you're coming out of line account. -- three would be you're getting ready for the next one and people are you know. Nervous about the -- of one normal year so with a ten year deal and others opt outs that it eight. But there were opt outs in this last one in and folks on the way to to to make it work hopefully this is the one that we don't have to worry about for another twenty years. Ted -- -- -- black sabres president -- calls coming up that you're all hang on 8030550. To join us on WG.
