This woman, "Michelle", comes in strutting her stuff to make a $6,000 sales package. Promising our ad will be seen by over 100,000 fans.

What she failed to mention is for one, they are the same 3,000 people every game. Also failed to mentioned there are over 150 other ads out there. So our $6,000 ad is buried among all the others.

The Aud looks worse than Nascars.

Anyone else unhappy? Seriously?

Actually i thought the aud looks great and believe it or not was appreciative of all the sponsors who put new looking signs up. It really reminded me to stay with local companies. For an example for all the flack carbone gets they really stepped up to help the comets as did all the companies with signs there. Give it some there def people seeing them. Its the first thing people check at their first game is the way the aud now looks. Maybe for you it can bee a little better but i don't think its bad as a fan prospective. At least i appreciate the signs and support of the businesses making the aud look nice

I sincerely hope you don't regularly handle the advertising for your business. I mean every inch that can be sold will be sold. Do you expect that if you bought an ad in a newspaper you would be the only advertiser? Some people truly are just clueless. Holy sh it.!

I guess you're the only unhappy one. How far do you think $6000 goes with an AHL team? That's a drop in the bucket. Don't get me wrong, they need more people like yourself but what did you expect? It take hundreds of businesses like yours to make this work. Yours is no better or worse than any other business as far as advertising.

I put my own FREE small ad in the ladies room stalls with a $2 Sharpie that says for a good time call my cell # and I am very pleased with the results!

Anyone Else Unhappy Advertising with Comets? No, I am pretty sure it is just you. The rest of the advertisers have an actual IQ above 75.

We have our ad on the well next to the press box.

Completely drowned out by all the other ads. We are not happy either. We will support them by buying season tickets next season but definitly not worth $4,000

You people want to spend money on the same 3,000 fans every game, over and over again go right ahead. Radio reaches over 60,000 more people for half that price.

Comets tell you over 100,000 people but unique is only 3,000.

Nice try Comets

I go to the game to watch Hockey not look at the ads. To be honest the only ad I remember (yes I only went once but will be going again) was the Big Apple ad up the stairs. Do not remember and really could care less about any of the other ads. Just because a business supports the Comets does not influence my decision to shop there. What influences my decision to shop at a business is the quality and overall value of the product they offer...

Another goof trying to get rid of something good. Just because they grabbed a few of your sponsors shouldn't make you angry. Try harder.

50,000??? Its the same 2,000 people that go every game. Same concept.

And they havent had a concert there since they came. Not to mention the 3 concerts they had scheduled for this winter, the Comets canceled all concerts.

Why would anyone advertise to people with below average income?
Most of those fans are brokey broke and can barely afford a soda......

There's youth hockey, UC hockey plus many other events people go to where people can see the ads. Radio advertising is good but so is advertising at the aud. You make radio advertising sound cheap, however it is not. If you do a hockey seasons worth of advertising on the radio, it would be extremely expensive.

I have had my restaurant business for 9 years. I just spend over $5,000 to advertise and support the Comets. Not one single customer has said anything about our ad or even thank us for the support. Shows how much we are being recognized there.
