It's great!!! and I've gone to the Aud many years for alot of things including hockey. The improvement are so nice and it looks clean and spotless in there truthfully. I applaud the efforts of everyone involved to bring this very nice arena up to date and get it to a point where it is ranked 8th in the world of other arenas!! It's something that "normal" people in Utica should and will be proud of.

Did you bother to look at the magazine that made the decision to rank the Aud #8?
I did.

It was lumped in with other notable articles like:

and
http://www.complex.com/style/2014/01/douchies...
and
http://www.complex.com/art-design/2013/12/new...
and
http://www.complex.com/music/2013/12/how-to-t...

Great magazine huh? Very authoritative and representative of the opinions of the masses wouldn't you say?

But the thing about the Aud being the 8th best venue in the world must be true. I read it on the internet.
Agree

No the question is are you serious??? Face reality and accept what has been stated. Stop trying to find an argument for what has been determined. What is your problem? Is having something good said about anything to do with Utica that disturbing to you? You have serious issues then. Truly give it up. You know-it-all you think anyway!

The Aud is not a bad venue at all, especially for hockey. Not too many bad seats in the house. Decent venue for concerts too, even though it doesn't get many anymore. A lot of of big time bands have played the Aud. Bon Jovi and Motley Crue in the 80's when they were big, etc.....

The problem with the Aud now is it's location. You have two choices, Whitesboro Street and it's projects and rehab center, or Columbia Street and it's strip clubs and Kennedy Plaza Apartments.

A UTICA based company makes the Comets 3d graphics. Not a washi gton, dc based. Good try though.

<quoted text>For years people in Utica have just lied and invented all kinds of "accomplishments" that were usually just like the above:Overrated and overstated bullshit that nobody cares about. As if "normal" people sit around with the Utican Hoi polloi sweatin' it out in some 1950s dive arena.
Even supporting that place a nickel's worth is supporting Griffo Beengreasy and Cuomo anyway. Nobody BUT Friends & Family got any work out of it the "bids" were all decided long long before any business NOT in the F&F plan even heard of it. Last week I even heard the worst story out of there yet there was even a poor crippled guy in utica who does good looking 3d graphics offering to make them graphics as a free donation to U.C. and he was told "no thanks" the "Esche - Comets plan" required the Griffo and Beengreasy money went to prearranged graphics places in Washington DC so they had to pay for work of less quality so they lost like 3 big supporters and the gimp's goodwill for the hockey games. This was all a big taxpayer money scam perpetrated by Esche Griffo and Beengreasy.
So no this is another cancer cell these people here. They will literally refuse lowball or free work to keep spending the taxpayers money into their friends & familie's pockets and no they DO NOT CARE about uplifting the area beyond what they can get for their silly hockey bullshit.


my experience is that if someone comes in with a low ball offer, they either dont know what they are doing, or are going to cut corners and put out a garbage end product. this is a professional hockey team, the want things done right. no difference when you want some work done on your home, are you going to have your roof replaced by the guy with the low ball offer??? do you shop for doctors by going to the cheapest one??? your an idiot..........

I guess if you believe that the "nano tech center" will employ 1500 with jobs for the area, and that Griffiss will employ another 500 with new jobs to 'test' drones developed elsewhere, then you might as well believe that the Aud is the 8th wonder of the world.

<quoted text>It's poison supporting that place it was all a scam nobody but the "chosen" are welcome to enjoy. Supporting them supports Freinds & Family nobody but select "friends" is receiving any of the taxpayer subsidized goodwill or work. Not the vending, not the lots. All these people are friends of the "utican crew" Palmieri. Griffo, Esche etc.
So now that the word is getting out and attendence is already falling off let them keep it and see if they can support all that silly bullshit. Let's see how long it stays afloat.
<quoted text>That's why nobody really wants to go see hockey long-term, as you found out in the past. The problem with the location is that it's in "Utica" where, as you see, they can't even invest in a hockey team without backroom deals and frauds who do not give back anything but noise, lies and an unwelcome attitude..
and it's the Cretinous Wonder above taking a break from lapping his step daddy's bungwhole for a check.

First Niagara center
Times union center
Rocehester war memorial
Syracuse war memorial
Brooms county arena
Glens falls civic center
Ok there's technically nine but let's call it 8. You honest believe the auditorium is better than any of those 8? You honestly believe it's the 8th best arena in the world? Every other venue in the ahl is even better than the aud. wake up people.

So we are still waiting for someone to try and justify how the aud is better than anyone of these venues let alone be the 8th best arena in the world? Oh my goodness the ignorance. Lol

i doubt the ranking has anything to do with how the rink is itself to watch a game. most of these buildings are older historic landmarks. in the auds case it was one of the first self suspension roofs in america. how this escapes your perverted logic is hard to comprehend. its a old building, outdated and in need of upgrades. it is what it is, deal with it. its a small rink, no bad seats in the building and a very loud rink.

Utica making such an absurly pointless and worthless list in the first place is what makes you call BS somewhere especially in light of some of the examples listed. It defies all explanation most people have never even heard of the Utica Glory Holy Auditorium and few would admit it if they had.
Define "desperate".
They really do need a Jim Jones Koolaide thing in there to clear up this retard infestation!
I especially like how the "article" doesn't list any other arenas on the "list". Lol

Perverted logic? Lol. Just because it's old and outdated doesn't make it great. If that were the case the whole city of utica would be considered great! Lol
