Instead of over analyzing the state of the Comets after each and every home game lets wait until the season is over and there is 38 games of data to look at. Every game where the crowd is smaller than expected it is either the sky is falling or Wednesday games before the holidays never draw well.

You can't judge success by looking at a small sample of the big picture.

Right now the team is playing exciting and winning hockey at a higher level than Utica has ever seen. I will be there for each game and hopefully more people will take notice and come down to the Aud regularly to watch the Comets play.

The nanotech jobs and their employees can't get here soon enough. Those people and their bucks will help attendance. That said, let's all remember the typical Utica excuses for not supporting a hockey team...by month:

October: Weather still too nice to watch hockey.
November: Too much preparation for the beginning of eating season AKA Thanksgiving and Black Friday to watch hockey.
December: Too busy shopping and baking for company coming from out of own to watch hockey.
January: Too cold to go out and sit in a cold arena to watch hockey.
February: Going to Florida to mooch of friends.
.
It's Utica. Always an excuse. AND UC hockey is only five bucks.

i think the nano tech and the improvements to parking and bathrooms will make a big difference in crowds at the aud. even i hate going when its a near sellout, there's no room to move in the building....if the comets get through this season then they should be ok if the improvements have the desired affect.... but then again, it is utica........anythings possible. the comets do play a more exciting game the the old school style the devils played. the building is better and the food is better.the atmosphere is better... the fans however remain the same.......

Mass army? How about ass farmie? So why does UC hockey suck? Because they don't fight? Because they have all their teeth? Or maybe because you're jealous of anyone (everyone) who is smarter than you are. They've shown that even as a D-3 team they can play with D-1 schools. And unless you're even more ignorant than you appear to be, D-1 players now make up a major portion of NHL rosters. In fact, 2 of the under 18 team members (who UC beat last week) are featured in Hockey News as cant't miss NHL prospects for next year. Stick to subjects you know about, like Keystone beer, double wides, generic cigarettes and morbidly obese girlfriends with tattoos. You wouldn't know good hockey if they stuffed the puck up your ass,

lets not turn this into a uc vrs comets disaster. uc has its place as cheap affordable hockey. its still division III hockey. they beat a under 18 team. that means a div III team of 18-19 and 20 yrs olds beat a team of 17 yr olds . that a huge age difference. and as far as the under 18 team beating a division I team. i seriously doubt the division I team played their top talent or were even "up" for the game.... on the other hand uc played all their top talent..... it dosnt mean anything. its one game. if uc played a Division I schedule they would get their butts kicked half the games. your not very realistic in your assessment of uc talent. yes they are good for a division I team, but thats it.

So, instead, you would prefer just bashing UC. The D-3 UC games are more exciting, better-attended, more competitive and will be much longer lasting than the Utica Comics.
The Comics are on their last leg; big crowd last night, and they will have some of those. We have already seen what most of their season's attendance will be like.
Go guzzle your swill at the game, and enjoy it while you can.
UC will be here for the long run.

there was no bashing in that post. Its just the facts. And I can tell you from attending both uc and comets games, that the ahl is a way more competitive league than the league uc is in. And as far as attendance, the comets are averaging over 3200. And I would expect that number to go up after the holidays. Both teams have a lot of no shows. And since the uc program is paid by uc its a no brained that it will be around a long time, thank you mister obvious. The comets won't be going anywhere....
