Oh, that's right...DuRoss failed with the Devils and Providence Bruins but hey, at least "Mohawk Valley Garden" can sure suck up taxpayer money for renovations for a fruitless venture.
After the "boxes" are installed next year, you'll have one season left to enjoy AHL hockey (for the 2000-2500 of you that show up) before Vancouver breaks the lease and bolts.
Until then, UC has to suffer. Classy, Rob.
HEY RELAX DUDE! IT'S ONLY DIV.3 hockey!NO COMPARISON AT ALL!!

You're a glaring endorsement for RACISM. Now get off the computer you obviously have stolen. Then go back to the home of whatever dumb bitch is supporting you, line up enough "rocks" and 40's, so that you never come out again.

I dont go to the games because i work nites, but i hope they continue to win and i support them.

First year out must be rough going but i'll bet in two years time they will be doing well, CNY is if nothing else a Hockey friendly community.

Go Comets!

uc still has a loyal following, it is definitely an asset for the community. not everyone is a big enough hockey fan to cough up 15 bucks a game. but i did go with a couple people who go to uc hockey, they couldnt believe the speed of ahl hockey... two totaly different products.

Hopefully we can get a good crowd at the Aud tomorrow night. Hope to see you there,we had a very loud crowd Saturday night. We gotta keep the win streak alive. The Comets got the monkey off their back and know how it feels to win in front of a home crowd.

I have season tickets for both UC and Comets hockey and enjoy both. It is understandable that UC hockey is D3 and the team plays at a high level for D3. Tickets are cheap and it is a night out for those who can only afford. The AHL is the second best hockey league in the world and we are very fortunate to have this team hear, regardless of affiliation. I am amazed at those who have bashed the Aud leadership and area politicians who basically saved the Aud from extinction. UC plays only 14 home games at the Aud and all are on Friday and Saturday nights so they have the best possible schedule for drawing.It does not matter if they have 380 or 3800 fans because all of the costs are subsidized by the college. The COmets have 16 Friday games 8 Saturday games,3 Sunday games, 4 Tuesday games and 7 Wednesday games which is not the best schedule available yet they still have averaged 3,292 per game through 9 home games so far. UC will most likely sell out most of not all of their games which is fantastic. As for empty seats at the Aud the UC games have way more when they sell out. Businesses buy advertising and get season tickets in return and obviously do not use them. It is up to them to distribute them. This is just the new way of doing business now. Look at the SU game on Saturday when they announced 35 thousand fans were there when actually it is reported a turnstile count of just over 21 thousand. It happens everywhere people. Quit living in the Utica of the 1960's and realize we will be in 2014 in a few weeks.
I for one have not noticed any different prices in the concessions. Please point out what they are if you have the facts. If you think the prices are too high then dont buy anything. Eat and drink befor you come to the game. The game only lasts 2 1/2 hours.
I really feel there are a few negative Nancy's out there who want to spoil what we have in place and stop the momentum.
Most of us love both teams. A few love to bash one or the the other but you are few and far between.
Go Comets - Go UC.

excellent post!!! and i do the same for the food. if i dont have extra money, eat at home. if i feel like it ill have some food. the food selection is much better than in previous years. love the fries and chicken tenders!!! sounds like uc got spoiled and expects everything to be done for that program even though it dos not rely on ticket sales or other revenue to run that program. good luck to both programs!!!

"Whoopie... Still a long way from 1st place. Comets will be gone within 5 years."

Now you're giving it 5 years? Three months ago you gave it one year. What's it gonna be?

Is it killing you to see that they're averaging over 3,200 fans/game? Imagine that...something successful happening in Utica. Go back to your miserable life.
