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.
yes what is your restaurants name?? we are going out to babes after tonights game cause they support the comets. i recently bought a suv from steet ponte cause they support the team. and there is alot more going on at the arena than hockey..... there are 1600 season tickets, and alot of those get shared and passed out. i see differant people every game in my section. and the comets are drawing around 600-700 fans a game in walk up sales.

Time for the area to give up on this hockey nonsense. Just because keeler is in bed with the aud and uc hockey doesn't make this a great idea. We've had plenty of teams come and go. This is no different then pizza places that close up and some idiot buys the same location and opens their own thinking now it will work but if not I will take that free money from the government and never pay it back

You hit the nail right on the head. Please add, stay on their couch all night spewing nonsense on Topix.

Oh brother. So you expect people to walk into your restaurant, say "yeah, I'll have the veal parm and by the way, thanks for advertising with the Comets?" How are you still in business?

As for the "same 3,000 people" (or 2,000)--it's not all the same people. It starts with season ticket holders and goes from there: some give their people to others when they can't attend, some are corporate and go to different people, others are single game tickets.

But if you expect to ONLY advertise at hockey games (or the Utica Aud if it's a large banner), you're not going to reach a large audience. Make it part of your total marketing and never stop.

I know I try and support the Comets sponsors however, I don't think I'd even think to go into a restaurant and say "hey, by the way, I'm here because your a sponsor!" I'd just be another customer.

Seriously people do you really think any of the posters in this thread actually own a business let alone advertise with the Comets. Just a bunch of trolls with nothing better to do with their miserable lives.

These people need a class in marketing- Who in their right minds would pay to have their name put up so a bunch of poor people who actually sit and watch noname hockey can see it? Whhooooh! I bet that's a real big return on "investment" there LMAO! Where else do these business moguls advertise? The soup kitchens? Salvation Army? You have GOT to be kidding me there's a sucker born every second in Utica!
well i seriously doubt any poor people frequent the comets games. the cheapest ticket is around 15 bucks. i see a lot of business owners at the games, politicians, doctors, accountants ect ect. im pretty sure that if you can afford comets tickets on a regular basis, you can afford to eat out.

now the uc games would draw a little lower level, but the still got money.

<quoted text>Yet you don't have "coin" for a soda. Right. Look there's a reason Utica has the title as poorest schools etc etc, so go try to tell someone else it's full of affluent people. You're in Utica NY, you don't exactly know what affluent really is, Utica is about as bad as NY gets. Get real.


who said anything about soda?? i don't drink soda. he was complaining about food prices. read the post. and i don't live in utica, the city is a dump. actually i doubt if any of the hockey fans even live in the city.. its all the suburbs and surrounding areas the fans are from.

<quoted text>Oh yes now THAT'S a good one: The "surrounding areas" are all upscale and affluent! LMAO! You don't get out of that place much do ya?
My god, these people are so poor they have to wipe their asses twice with the same Qtip yet suddenly all the Diamond Jim Bradys come out of the woodwork for retard 9th-prate hockey! That's rib busting funny OMFG you people are so culturally/economically poor and pathetic there that 'this is how it is' huh?!! LOOOOOOOL!!
My god these Utica poverty potatos have ALL the answers ALL the time!
Look let me take the mystery out of your life for you: You're a loser stuck in upstate NY yelling out of the Utica hole trying to tell me that people who go to sit and look at minor minor miniscule league hockey sports are better off than the Hamptons LMAO! You're boorish, prone to needing to be "entertained" and into cheap thrills. Utican stats: You're not going to die wealthy, happy or old.
Utica and poverty... emotional, logical, moral, financial and cultural... go hand in hand. If you disagree I doubt you've looked around these last 20 years! Try saving your "coin" and take a vacation.
Enjoy your entertainment!
But Joe Griffo will bring nano jobs and then Oneida County will be BETTER and wealthier than Hamptons by far.....I believe this!
Wow u r dumb

<quoted text>You REALLY have never been to the Hamptons then LMAO! I would suggest looking it up before you make an even bigger fool out of yourself. You people are just unreal with these delusions!
....Utica, the ignorance-hole capitol of NYS dreaming of trumping Long Island HAAAAA HA HA HA HA HA! You people couldn't land FIVE people from Montauk to even go up there in that swamp! Trust me half that nano BS backed out already and there are no plans for any factory. You got bullshitted again by a SUNY classroom and the usual smoke & mirrors. Not even particularly BELIEVABLE ones!
Anyway, tell me which stellar businesses are being stampeded by all the billions of comets fans hmmm? Again they should just call them what they are like the mini football and little league teams do: Donations. Maybe the Comets could even print up those stupid advertiser books like they do too!
Hey broky broke.....are you so dumb to not realize I was joking about Griffo and nano BS?
You are not smart enough to be earning over 22k so I guess you are washing cars on LI or cleaning gutters etc.
I can't believe you could not realize it was GriffoNano satire......how stupid you have proven to be.....no making up for it but your ignorance will try in your next post because I hit your broky broke reality button right?
SUCKer. Baaahaahaaa Montauk lol!!!!

Again, the fact you're stuck in poverty hole USA leaves nothing left to be said. Thanks for the hee haws, illiterate upstate rube!
Wow you identify so strongly with success so I guess that is the best you can do with your GED.....thanks for the entertainment phony! You're still broke and have to wash cars tomorrow so get to bed early!
