Interesting. The local hockey team has their 1st home playoff game that night. I wonder how many fans and media will be at the fan forum.

The over/under is 40. Unless they change the night. Why compete with the Jets ?

The NHL playoff schedule has not been released yet, just that the playoff start on the 11th.  There is no guarantee that the Jets play on the 11th.

That's true. For some reason I was thinking they played for sure on Weds.

The forum has been becoming less interactive over the past few years so it wouldn't surprise me if the Bombers organization would prefer fewer people in attendance.  This forum seems like something they feel they have to do, but don't really want to do it.  Scheduling it on a day where the Jets likely play their first playoff game, is probably a strategic decision.  The Tuesday wasn't available when there will definitely be no conflict with the Jets?

I'm pretty sure the NHL hasn't announced playoff dates yet, so where are you getting your information that the Jets have a home game that day?

still seems odd that the Bombers would even take that chance..there is a real good possibility that there will be a home playoff game on the 11th.  There is zero chance there will be one on 10th.  Can be hard to schedule around an unknown and there are availability challenges with the coaches and GM etc. but seems risky IMO.  I love the game of football more than hockey but that said I will be in front of my TV watching the Jets in the playoffs for sure.

Unconfirmed rumor is that the NHL playoff schedule will be out April 8, and the Jets first 2 games are April 11, and April 13.  Again *unconfirmed*.

From someone who has never heard of the WFC "Fan Forum", what is it?  Just a chance for fans to address the bigwigs and ask questions, like a "town hall meeting"?  Worth going to?

Wade goes over the financials from the previous season. Then they leave about 30 minutes for a few questions from fans. It?s been going downhill the past few years and I?d say probably not worth going to anymore.

I saw another (unconfirmed) source today that has the Jets first round home games as April 11, 13, 20 and 25.  So looks like the Fan Forum on April 11 will be crickets.  Nice job Wade....probably exactly what the Bombers wanted.
