Y'know, I can remember when the "old" scoreboard was installed, so it can't really be THAT old, right?

RIGHT??

I'm sure the new scoreboard won't be at all patronizing to fans, blare ads, and/or be pitched to kids with microsecond attention spans and iPacifiers.

I'll take this, please.

Agreed. The last thing I need is a scoreboard imploring me to "Make some Noise!!!!!!!" or "Get Loud!!!!"

Not to mention it probably won't show instant replays, so what's the bloody point?

I’ll actually bet that it does have a video board for replays. I get the nostalgia, but I think that would be useful.

Time flies when you're.....an old guy who can't believe it's been 8 years.

We miss the replays we would like to see the most at RPI. I'm not sure if it is a league rule (as I have seen the "rule" ignored during some non-league games) but we don't get to see replays during off ice reviews concerning penalties. One can see fans picking up cell phones to watch the rpitv live stream. They are often able to watch the potential infraction replay while those of us in the stands who aren't so quick or don't have unlimited data plans watch the replay in our heads.

I’m sure the point is MOAR ADVERTI$ING!!!! (Volume intended)

I’m pretty sure the small red LED message section of the most recent scoreboard did show messages like “GET LOUD” But mostly said things like “Let’s Go Red”

That makes some sense. I know there are times in other leagues / sports when they won’t show a controversial called (or missed call) for fear that the crowd will get pissed off and cause problems. Interestingly, the withholding of the replay often just makes people angry anyways.

A scoreboard with audio/visual capability will exacerbate interference with the crowd and further destroy the atmosphere. MLB is no longer even watchable at the ballpark because of the ubiquitous pumped in noise. A home run is immediately followed by the trite repetition of the song from The Natural, and crowds have come to be trained to not do anything themselves but wait to be prompted.

Hopefully all audio capability from the scoreboard will prove, ahem, faulty until the administration learns not to fuck with traditions or attempt to program the Faithful.

The best thing about the Lynah crowd has always been what happens when nothing is happening... the spontaneous cheering and trash talk that have now all been supplanted by scripted frat douchwaggling or long periods of smartphone zombie silence. The poor old place doesn't need a coup de grace.

Framing for the new scoreboard is up and it's said that it'll be installed next week.

What are they doing with the seating behind this. Hard to be sure, but it looks like it'll be harder to look over the new scoreboard.

My guess is it isn't a "scoreboard" at all. It's a video display and a controller will push an image to it which includes the output of a scoreboard app.

That would mean they can simply push the video stream of gameplay to it in real time. They can do a lot of things as long as they have the rights. They could even hold viewing parties in the rink for away games.

That gets a firm meh from me. It's not absolutely horrible, but it contrasts from the rest of the rink pretty badly, and the dimensions make it awkward for replays, which is what I was most interested in.

We'll see. If it's used for advertising it's nothing industrial bolt cutters can't handle. Or perhaps a MANPAD just to be sure.

The wiggly, bouncy letters are a Very Bad Sign. Hopefully they'll read the demo better and class it up. This isn't a juniors game where you're aiming to please inattentive toddlers.

I bet there will be something unnecessary for when the team takes the ice too.

If (who am I kidding, when) they do that I recommend the fans (1) boo loud AF and (2) not buy any concessions. Starve the fucks.

This lowest common denominator garbage is the bane of the universe and hitherto, with a few exceptions, we've somehow managed to keep Lynah clear of it. When whichever corporate assholes owned the Montreal Forum fired the organist and started piping in idiot music the Habs fans reacted so violently they were forced to reverse the decision.

The scoreboard should be used for scores, time, penalties, and replays. None of the rest of that insulting crap should ever see the light of a pixel. Ithaca and Cornell are way above that.

I hope they prove me wrong, but I worry that today's kids don't have the nerve to execute a similar protest, nor might they know that there is anything to protest in the first place given that their lives have been so suffused with corporatism.

Yes, the scoreboard will have dopey applications and fans will be urged to stand up, cheer, wave, not throw fish. But that's life. Things change. We get older. Today's freshmen - first-years - have different perspectives. They may like the scoreboard.

I have not yet made my peace with ads running before movie-theater movies. You pay ten dollars, it's to see a movie, not ads for soda and local car dealers. But I have stopped yelling, "Just how the bleeping movie."

We both probably say to ourselves, "Rage, rage against the dying of the light." Unless it's the goal lamp behind the opposition nets.

You're right. Those socialist, free bathrooms? What a waste! Better to monetize them.

We should have screens above the urinals, obviously. And why not add ear-splitting advertisements, preferably with soulless techno: "This bathroom brought to you by Shortline! We gooooooooooo the distance!"

Those moments when I'm not sold to or exhorted to "just do it?" Man, I don't like them. I end up contemplating the emptiness of my existence. And that doesn't make me want to buy anything…

Bleh. You can watch replays when you get home.

I mean, there's already proof of what happens when you construct a video board by observing the crowd at Schoellkopf. As soon as the whistle blows, about 2900 heads will instinctively snap to that end of the ice to watch whatever visual noise/activity gets put on the TV. Most of our society are already conditioned to doing that. The fans will be quieter: There's less incentive to start chants and cheers, or even discuss the play with your neighbor when there's a digital babysitter. I'm fully expecting that he "buzz" level of Lynah will be even more reduced. They'll crank up the sound when they play the "BUY TICKETS TO RED HOT HOCKEY" commercials and take away more time from the band/cowbell/students. And by October of next year, more than half of the student sections will only know Lynah with a glowing TeeVee directing and commanding most of their attention.

I simply don't trust Andy's minions to show restraint with the new money-printing toy.

As usual Rich puts things more diplomatically than I.

Lynah has been the closest there is to a church for me, and hitherto it's escaped the worst of our shit-for-brains consumerist killing jar culture. If and when it dies it will be just one more corpse plowed under by the greedy idiocy that infects our public spaces.

Actually, the visual ad creep doesn't bug me that much; indeed, I've chuckled at more than a few over-urinal ads. I can look at them or ignore them.

But audio ad creep and audio intrusions (like "Jock Jams" shoved into every stoppage) make me want to tear out patch cables and kick over amps. The idiots who think "it's just one short ad" or that they're "giving the people what they want" don't seem to realize that what they're actually doing is suppressing crowd involvement. And none of us can just "ignore them." That's not the way our ears work.

It's all anti-human.
