well if you think for one second that the comets are counting on bosnian and vietnamese refugees as their fan base you must be completely clueless. the only reason these people live in utica is because they cant afford to live out side that dump of a city.the fan base is the suburbs and surrounding area where the quality of life is much much better. hockey is a large part of winter life in the area. Clinton, New Hartford, Whitesboro high schools all have state championships in the last 10-15 yrs and all have rinks as well as rome.then theres Morrisville, hamilton and colgate college rinks. seems to me that someone likes hockey in the area to keep all of those rinks in business.

Hockey worked because it was UC college hockey, something that has been part of our town for a long time. The simple days of getting in free as a UC student or paying a simple 5 dollar general admission free are over. Now we have to search on ticketmaster and end up getting terrible seats while paying additional fees. I'm not bothering with the comets, though I hope they do well, I don't think they will.

nothing should change as far as utica college is concerned. Tickets will remain affordable for those fans. Why do you think it will be any differant?

It is different, before last year, tickets were general admission 5 dollars. I get there early, pay the $5 and get the seats I want. Now order tickets through ticket master where u can't ever find good seats, pay their service fees and then I still have to pick up tickets anyway. It would be much easier the old way of general admission $5 dollar tickets. I only went once last year, because of that experience. So whose getting the good seats??? Because I searched when seat sales opened and ticket master was only selling certain seats, so matter what day I checked. The good seats aren't being sold
To general public, instead they are being saved for those some bodies of utica.

well that has nothing to do with the comets. Uc went to assigned seats last year. But the aud had no internet service and a outdated ticketmaster program. That is being corrected this summer. I got good seats for uc just by stopping at the aud 5 days b4 the game....

There is no terrible seat in the Aud. It's not Cowboys Stadium for god sakes. If you're that concerned with seating, something tells me you know nothing about hockey and/or you are just trying to be a douche on Topix.

UC change to assigned seating last year had nothing to do with the Comets coming. It happened long before the talk of the AHL in Utica. They went to assigned seating after trying to squeeze a couple hundred people above capacity into the Aud at the teddy bear toss night and there wasn't enough seats for everyone.

I just might catch a Comets game when they play Rochester, but believe you me, I've been a Syracuse Crunch fan since their very beginning (when the Utica Devils folded), and I'm not going to change teams all of a sudden. If Syracuse plays the Comets in Utica (chances are they will), I'm still wearing my Crunch colors, baby! You Uticans don't like it, tough, and I hope Syracuse cleans their clocks! Also, don't bother to throw any of that cheap Saranac on me in the stands; at five bucks a cup, I'm not worth it. GO CRRRRRUNCH!!!

The UC Pioneers men's hockey team rules! When the Comets suck, you can always see UC win some games. I will still support the Pioneers. Any of you who are thinking of forsaking the Pioneers in favor of the Comets, you're crazy!!!

no body cares who you root for, there are fans of both teams at every game.

i went to devils games and uc games. i prefer the ahl as opposed to college kids. its a completely different level of talent. its not about wins and loses for me. i enjoy a higher talent level than college hockey. for you it is about wins.
