LOL, Try looking at the trends genius. The Crunch have won only 3 of their last 10 while the Comets have won 5 of their last 10. The Crunch have played very poorly lately and if you read comments from their fans it is like the sky is falling and blaming Tampa Bay for not caring about the Crunch.

Sure, go drive an hour to Syracuse and watch the Crunch lose in that dump of a building and enjoy your drive back at night on a snow blown thruway while I enjoy my short drive to a much nicer Aud and support my local team.

its ahl hockey you moron..... if you think the lightning exist to put a winning team in syracuse every year you better get some people to help you remove your head from your azz...... very rarely at the ahl level does a team have three winning years in a row, its constant changes and call ups. and promotions. your obviously completely clueless as to what the ahl is all about!!!!!

Oh Whitesboro poster that goes under many names. You have no life. That's a fact you'll have to come to terms with. Hey remember, suicide is always a viable option for you. Good luck.

you must really have a short memory, crunch finished first and do you remember what happened the last time they finished 1st in 2002?? ya they missed the playoffs in 2003. since then the crunch have been in 2nd 3 times,4th once, 5th twice, sixth three times and a 7th place finish. you really need to get a clue....... guess you totally forgot the ducks being just a 500 organization.... comets are a completely new team, and doing great!!!!

I may have replied in the wrong spot here but I do feel that this is a HUGE reason for the drop-off in attendance.Just trying to give a fair account of the situation, if you may...Anyone else agree???
Agree completely with you. My Section 202 neighbors all are dedicated fans, but all had other obligations on Sunday. Does not mean that they have abandoned the team. I will see them on Wednesday, I am sure.

I'd like to see them succeed, but I'm not optimistic. On the other hand, this message is for the dumbass who labelled D-3 programs as loser hockey. Before losing to UC on Saturday night, the USA under 18 team beat the #3 ranked D-1 team in the country. Pull your head out of your butt, Skippy; you're missing a good game.

well they have needed that parking lot for twenty five years. ever since they re routed that entrance ramp on to rt 12. there used to be a bigger lot there. went fri night, sidewalks not cleaned, people walking in the roads, someones gonna get killed. the new suites and entrance is on the side where the new parking lot is going. will be much safer away from the main rd.

I Agree with you 100%! Also agree the Aud looks awesome compared to the on-center.

Really though, People bitch when there is nothing to do in the city, then we get something new and people still find reason to bitch. If you don't like it here and it sucks so much... MOVE! Why are you here? Nobody's keeping you.
