<quoted text>. I did some researching. Apparently the political genius who cooked up this whole deal is not surprisingly out of office. In the first four years the report said abbotsford paid around 3.5 million. Fans do not go to games do to resentment of such a bad deal for the city. The building holds about 7000, average attendance is around 2500. Wow..... There are some really stupid politicians out there...,..and I would say there is zero chance of abbotsford throwing any money Vancouver's way to bring them in. The main question is does vancouver want in because its near home, or dies vancouver want in because of the deal the flames got???
From what I've read it has nothing to do with the deal the Flames got. It's that the Canucks' owner wants to be in Abbotsford. The thing that stands in the way of him getting his way is the long term contract with the Flames. Their attendance doesn't matter under the terms of the current deal. The deal is that the city of Abbotsford will cover any deficit in operating costs. That would seem to mean that if no one shows up for games the Flames still have a guaranteed break even. Why would they move?

Our resident expert still hasn't told us why the Flames would voluntarily opt out of such a sweet deal to make way for Vancouver. Just doesn't make sense.

Exactly.
I grew up in Utica. It's a society that is so backwards and unintelligent, it's actually quite fascinating. I am grateful to have left that cesspool of stupidity.
And, yes - there will be no AHL team in that toilet of a town next year.
ummmmmm... hate to point this out, but your in schnectady??????? that place is a bigger dump than utica is. and you have troy, schenctady and albany all right there and your ahl team is drawing 2500 a game???? go back to your disaster of a life and leave us alone......

I don't live in Schenectady, nor do I have an AHL team. There's one in Albany, but I have no involvement. I don't go to the Devil games.

Most people out here go watch Union or RPI rather than the Albany Devils.

Your response is typical of the unintelligence that is rampant in the Utica area. And, I hate to break it to you, but my life is actually pretty awesome.

It's just fun to bust on you dopes who think that an AHL team in your toilet town is the end-all be-all. It's not. And the team will disappear before you know it.

One city is 90 miles apart from the other. You basically live in the same city. I don't know why you put down Utica when you really are putting down yourself. I grew up in Utica also and moved away. I wish anybody living in upstate New York well.
I believe what's being referred to is overall lack of intelligence in the people that still reside in Utica. To say that someone 'basically' lives in the same city as Utica is senseless. There is NO other place as backwards as Utica. It's really the Land That Time Forgot. I am in town on occasion for work, that will change next year. Believe me, no AHL for you next year.

How is it the Flames have no say? That is the part that doesn't make sense. What makes you say that? Seems to me the Flames are in the driver's seat. They are co-signators on a 10-year contract that isn't half over yet. What is that you think is Abbotsford's out at the end of this season?
Obviously the city of Abbotsford wants out of a deal that will potentially cost the taxpayers of that city $15 million over the life of the current deal.
Obviously the owner of the Canucks would like to have is farm team closer to home and in an area dominated by Canucks fans.
That doesn't mean that it will be easy or cheap to displace the heat so their dreams can come true.
The flames have zero say after season five.

You call people from the Utica area losers yet you go on Utica Topix. You must have no life if you need to go on this site just to break balls. You know what's amazing is that my life is pretty awesome as well and I live in the Utica area. I believe it's "you" who is the loser. Go to Albany Topix and talk to people on your level. Believe me, that place is the real shithole!

To the contrary, my job takes me all over the US. I've seen many parts of the country. There are really nice places and there are some really nasty places to visit. You couldn't make it here so you moved to a worse shithole. You sound frustrated and unhappy with your choices so you come on here and let out your frustrations. You have nothing better to do than to go on topix and put people down just because they live in an area you don't like. Think about how childish you sound. Grow up and move on. You're very immature.

Sorry I made it there, and then I made it even bigger elsewhere. I guess you have nothing better than defending that hole to havre some sense of self worth.

Looking through the AHL attendance figures the Comets fare pretty well when compared to the rest of the league considering a majority of the rest of them are in market 5 times the size of uticas....That said Albany is a shythole...

Oh and watch what happens to attendance in Utica , Syracuse, Albany, Rochester when SU has home basketball games on the same night as the cities do.. Especially with the new ACC alignment... Duke, NC, etc etc coming to Syracuse ... Lol ahl hockey won't even be on The radar

People who live in CHU-tica think that 'traveling' is taking the bus from Mohawk Street up to New Hartford Shopping Center.

They are so over sensitive about their fancy little AHL team, aren't they? It's kinda funny how uptight they get about things related to the MIGHTY COMETS.

Oh my God, get over yourselves. Enjoy your one season of AHL hockey - your toilet town is just a pawn in the game. He's a secret, most of the money is already gone.

Like I mentioned. Try google. The entire contract is available online in PDF form. Let's see if uticans can actually use google. It's really not that difficult.

Typical troll response which is never backed up with facts. If you are so sure of yourself provide a link with all of the buy out details. How hard can that be?
