Another SELLOUT crowd of 15,045 saw the Rush win in Overtime last night by a score of 12-11 over Calgary. It was the Rush's 6th win in a row and put them in 1st place in the entire League with the win.
Great Job Boys...Go Rush Go !

The best thing about the Rush...... the fact they are located in Saskatoon. They have hurt the Blades attendance. I would not want to have the same thing happen to the Queen City kids. Go Pats Go.

The Blades attendance is not hurt by the Rush, but the product on the ice for the last ten years

The Rush have not hurt the Blades. Years of mis-management and horrible hockey have killed the Blades brand in Saskatoon. I believe the WHL is effectively dead in Saskatoon. Look at the Blades attendance figures before the Rush showed up, they weren't much better. You can't give Blades tickets away as watching the on ice product is 3 hours of your life you will never get back.

Glad the Rush are being supported. Saskatoon now has a "Professional" team to support. It's been awhile since the we are a NHL city trolls have appeared. You get the odd "Move the Riders" troll, but for the most part the Rush have satisfied the pro sports void in Saskatoon. They now have stadium envy with Regina but they will always have something in Toon town to keep the Regina hate train rolling.

I took in my first Rush game last night. I would recommend anyone to check it out. Coop sells tickets for 25 $ for nose bleeds .
As for the Blades several years of losing have killed interest .

I think it is ridiculous to think the Rush have not hurt the Blades attendance. This year alone, the Blades are averaging 620 less fans per game then last year. It decreased approximately 180 the year before when the rush didn't start up until half way through the year. The Blades have a better team this year then last. There is only so much money to be spent on watching sports. A loss of 800 fans per game in 2 years is significant.

who cares its only saskatoon and its only the rush

Your right Dittmer. Saskatoon Blades should get out of town and make room for an AHL team in this growing city. They would probably average 10 to 12 thousand per game if that were to happen. They get good crowds in Winnipeg with the Moose and that is a city that already has NHL. Saskatoon Blades have been so stagnant for so many years you would think the owners would have caught on by now because they have to be losing money.

In total agreement with above comments. The Blades have been nothing short of a disaster for years now. I refuse to shell out over $20 for a ticket to see a team maybe score 2 goals a game. I'd gladly go see the Pat's instead as from what I have read are fast exciting talented and score alot of goals. And good on them for putting on a brand of hockey that is packing the rink. The Rush has been a blessing and has captivated fans here and hopefully across the province. It's a really amazing sport played at a level that keeps you engaged at all times. Look away for a second and you miss a goal. We have a very good team and really grinder out the win last night. It was an amazing game and evening as a whole!! Go once and you'll want to come back!!

Sorry guys, I'm from Saskatoon and a big sports fan but Saskatoon is not a "sports town", we are an "events town." We are a culture, arts and events city while Regina is the sports city. It's true. We are an unbelievable place for concerts, events, food and culture but we fall short when it comes to sports. The only sports team that really has a true, strong following is the Huskie football team. They do very well and set the bar but it doesn't happen to other sports.

The Rush are killing it in this city but it's not because we have lacross fans or sports fans going to the game. I think I'm being a bit conservative but I would think that 75% of the 15,000+ at Sasktel Centre couldn't name three players on the Rush team, the coach, who they played the night before, who leads the team in scoring, etc.

People are there for the fun, the entertainment and to see the team win. It's unbelievable and hopefully it will help grow the game of lacross to a point where we have many lacross fans and people really love the game.

Saskatoon may win in a few areas but sports isn't one of them and you'll never win that argument on this blog.

If you want to see good hockey in Saskatoon go watch the Huskies they are far superior than any dub team out there. The Huskies, Golden Bears, Mount Royal would eat any dub team for lunch. As for going to a Rush game, it's just fantastic, just ask the group of Regina fans that were seating next to us, they were having a blast.

Are you kidding me. Regina is all about the Riders. Rod's blog is all about the Riders. Everything in Regina is all about the Riders.

Wow ! Regina fans actually lowered themselves and went to a Rush game. Good on you Regina fans before you know it you will be wanting a Franchise in Regina. Oops, I forgot your BARN is far to SMALL for such a Popular Sport.

Did the Pats win today?

Manitoba Moose average about 5800 per game, which is pretty close to the league average. 10-12 fans per game in toon town, don't think so, 6-8000 more realistic. Some weeknight games probably Blades numbers. Saskatoon is not a hockey town.

Fold the Blades after this season folks. They are not a hockey town.

Saskatoon the city of burnt bridges. As soon as the Rush have a crappy year. The good folks of Saskatoon will burn that bridge too. Then they will be right back were they started. A city with nothing.
