    Understand the back-to-backs in an Olympic year but isnt it time to cut those out for player safety? Also not a fan of the one game homestand or one game roadtrip.

    • Jon Sorensen says:

      Agree, it’s very inefficient, waste of money, etc. I can only assume that arenas aren’t open due to conflicts with basketball games or other events. A move to baseball-like schedules would be nice.
