I thought this was about hockey. It will be the only large, well-attended game of the first and last season.

I'm a season ticket holder and will be at every home game but I have to say Utica got the short end on this schedule. Too many Tuesday and Wednesday home games plus too many home games bunched close together will hurt attendance. They were too accommodating to UC who ended up with a much better home schedule.

Plus only 4 total games with the Crunch?

Regardless of the schedule, I'm still going to all the home games. Hopefully next year we get a better home game schedule. See you @ the Aud.

if u look at some of the other teams schedules you will see that all teams have games bunched like that. The wester teams have horrible schedules. Almost all theirs games are two games here... Two games there......

"Too accommodating" to UC??? The UC Hockey team built a fan base of 3,500 per game. They have made a major impact on the Aud's bottom line. They created and maintained local interest in CNY Hockey. The Comets OWE UC; DuRoss and Esche have repeatedly said that. The Comets are here because of UC, and regardless of the Comets' future, the Pioneers will continue to be successful. Pro hockey franchises' track records here are dismal-the weak ones folded, the good ones moved. The jury's out on the Comets; any judgement made now on their success is premature, to say the least. Let's see where they are (financially and geographically) in 3 or 4 years. If they're even half as successful as UC, good for them. Meanwhile, kudos to UC and Gary Heenan for "setting the table"; they deserve scheduling consideration. "Go Comets"-you're a moron.

i'm sure with the late announcement of the comets coming to utica, that the aud was already booked for some of those weekends. and its just not uc, youth hockey plays there well as high school, state hockey playoffs and high school wrestling. with esche in control of the aud booking i'm sure next years schedule should be more favorable to saturdays. just be happy there is a team,it did all happen very quickly. i have season tickets for the comets, but only went to uc games three or four times.it will be a good test to see if the fan support is really there.......

UC hockey will outdraw the AHL one-and-dones.

Plus the UC games are just crawling with grade A college level poon.

AHL will only pull in toothless trailer park pigs with front butts and floppy boppers.

uc will outdraw the comets in total attendance, but uc gives away half their tickets to students. the comets will outdraw uc in paid attendance which is the number that really matters....
