5. Does the University at Albany football team need a new stadium in order to be successful at the NCAA Division I FCS level?

A. Yes (23 percent)

B. No (65 percent)

C. Not sure (12 percent)

Readers seem to believe that it's the coaching staff that makes the team successful, not the stadium that they play in.

A. Yes (58 percent)

B. No (23 percent)

C. Not sure (19 percent)

If Giants President and CEO John Mara says the team will train at UAlbany in 2012, then most readers are willing to take him at his word.

A. Yes (31 percent)

B. No (46 percent)

C. Not sure (23 percent)

8. Are the Albany Devils doing enough from a promotional standpoint to bring fans to their home games?

A. Yes (12 percent)

B. No (69 percent)

Apparently, using "Now this is FUN!" as your ad campaign wasn't enough to get people to go to home games, as the Devils were at the bottom of the average attendance standings last year " not to mention the bottom of the East Division standings. We'll see if the Devils make a better effort in promoting their team this season.
