I'm a big supporter of the Comets and AHL hockey and will continue supporting them. Yes I wish they were winning but they haven't been getting blown out so the wins will come.

I'm also a fan of the UC Pioneers and the team that they have coming back this season can be quite special. Gary and his boys have given us a great product for years and will still have my support.

It's crazy to think that you have to pick sides between Utica's two hockey teams.

Go Comets!!!! and Go Pioneers!!!!

How do you purchase comet tickets if you don't want to purchase online ? Second guesting how do you purchase tickets for the teddy bear toss . Utica college bookstore ?

Why do you lump everyone into the category that we can only afford $5 for a night on the town? I don't think this area is as broke as you make it out to be...maybe you are, but plenty of people in this area have carved out a nice living for themselves.

Drive around the suburbs, and we can even take NH out of the equation. Sauquoit, Deerfield, Clinton, Barneveld, Marcy, Cassville, Westmoreland, etc..., there are some beautiful homes in these areas. These are the people that professional teams market to.

there is no reason to choose between them. there will be stretches where one or the other are on the road, some people will go to both teams games. i prefer the ahl, but will do a uc game or two. and your right, if the comets were loosing 6-0 all the time it would be a Huge issue. the team is coming along fine, the wins will come. i expected a slow start the first 20 games with all the players coming in from every which way. and the both support each other. the comets are the reason the aud got all the upgrades which helps uc. and uc games help the comets with extra income from food and parking fees. everybody wins!!!! then you have idiots on here who expect the newly formed comets to compete with the crunch who finally did something last season after 20 yrs in the league.....

I hear the food and beer will be cheaper for the UC games. so there may not be any income for the comets from there

Looking for a win from the Comets, but still love loving them being here! The team is developing, give them time!

I have season tickets for both the Comets and UC. We have a very unique opportunity to support both teams. If you cant afford the Comets thats is fine but please do not bash the efforts they have given. UC has been around quite awhile and it is cheap entertainment for sure. There is a HUGE difference in skill level for sure and that should not be any surprise. The crowds are definately more vocal and into it at the Comets games. I look forward to many more games through April of 2014.

yes theres a couple thing thats a huge differance. Talent level is no comparison. Also comet fans are much more passionate about their games vrs uc crowd that pretty much sits on its hands till a goal is scored. But that goes back to the fan base of each team. Comets draw true passionate fans that love the game,know the game,and in most cases played hockey. Uc draws from the college kids who go cause its cheap and their friends are going. They also get the novice hockey fan who dosnt know the game but the team wins, and its cheaper than a movie. They deffinatly have two differant fan bases. I regularly see ex clinton comets and utica devils at comets games.

Do you really think the city of Utica can excel at anything. Loser city, loser Mayor and a terrible city to be involved in. Look at all the crooked politics going on now and this is crippling the city and going to get worse. Sorry Comets but Utica is a loser place to be. Now if you went to NH, then things would be different. A positive, growing place to be( who doesn't brag about a Moe's turning the city around, roflmao). What an idiot Pamieri is.

100% correct..... But if you ask uticans we are all just a bunch of dumb hicks out here surrounded by cow manure...... Its OK I don't mind.... The only gun shots I hear are during hunting season and my nearest neighbour is 1000yards away....I like the fact that my neighbours have well kept homes and aren't on welfare also....

UC hockey is terrible compared to The COMETS. Not 1 player from utica college could ever play for the Comets. Crappy D3 hockey who cares.

I go to both Comets and UC. Two different animals and both entertaining at reasonable pricing.
