They spend another year or two flailing and using gimmicks to try to entice people into going to see hockey games. After that fails, the team leaves and the administration will point the blame somewhere else.

The Aud goes back to it's normal purpose of being a giant toilet for pigeons and an occasional bridal expo or gun show.

Do you people just thrive on spewing negativity on trashy social media sites? You're all such experts on this topic, what do you suggest to "fix it?"

Why are legitimate and true observations about the utica region always viewed as being "negative" by uticans? Is it insecurity or just a real band case of ostrich with their head in the sand syndrome? The actual attendance at the games is downright horrible. I don't care what's announced its easy to see just from a simple of versatile. How is this being negative?

How about stop spending my tax money on boondoggles for private ventures just to enrich those who support the same ole politicians who are constantly returned to office.

Did anyone expect anything else? This is Utica! We've already lost several hockey teams due to poor attendance and why would this be any different. Sure there are a lot of devoted fans here but not enough to support a team on a regular basis. Same goes for minor league baseball. We cant support them. How about having "Asian Night" once a week. Free tickets and beer to all our little Burmese and Vietnamese Uticans.

In fairness the devils did not leave because of poor attendance. They received a deal from Albany that was far superior to what utica could do.

Yea but its five times more money to rent the giant center then it is the aud ask albany who is drawing 2400 in a 15k person arena. Ask thrm if they would rather pay the rent to be in utica vs the times union centre.
Exactly what I thought

Trust me guys, as much as the doomsdayers predict their demise, the Comets will be here for quite a while.

It's a solid business plan, and yes, low overhead helps. Part of the benefits of living in a small city.

So sit back and take in a game. I think you'll find that you'll have a good time.
