Amazing spin. Picente calls for 500g in aud parking renovations and proceeds to tout the so-called success of the Comets first and UC Pioneers second. When in fact UC has actually accomplished far more too date than the comets. A complete slap in the face to UC and an insult to people's intelligence or perhaps lack thereof. I have yet to hear any comets success story so so. Perhaps Picente should attend both teams games and get his facts straight before spewing utter bs.

Successful teams didn't go by the teams records. Why are you so stuck in win loss records. Comets have drawn well and will continue to do so. Every ticket sold, every concession sold,every souvineer sold generates tax income for the city.and since uc charges 5 bucks and the comets charge 15-20 bucks. Which team is generating more tax revenues??? You just don't get it do you????

Exactly correct. I thought the same thing too, a slap in the face to UC.

well the uc dullards cant figure out why the state and county put so much money in to the aud for the comets, but it all comes down to tax revenue. uc draws 3500 plus fans a game, but alot of students who get in free. so lets say 2000 paying fans at 5 bucks each. 9% tax is .45 cents per fan/900 bucks a game / 15 games or so.thats a whopping $13500 in tax revenue. comets are drawing 3200 fans a game at $17.50 a game. thats about $1.55 tax per fan/ almost 5 grand in taxes per game, times 38 games is almost $190,000. and you wonder why comets get first billing??????? deal with reality..... the comets sell way more concessions and souvenirs than uc does also...THATS why the politicians cater to the comets. they dont even realize uc exists, until the comets came to town.

With all the money pumped into AUD and Comets, it will take many, many, many years to see any return on investment. Remember...it is the taxpayers who paid for all of this to begin wth!
If you really want to see who is getting a return on this...let's see a list of all companies who recieved funds paid with tax dollars. Oh, is that top secret?

Can't we just enjoy the games? Do you think Utica is the only city that is doing all this? Just about all the teams go through this. It's a business. It will take some years to earn a profit, just like any other business. People complain about nothing to do. When we get something good and it costs the taxpayers a little bit, you complain about that. Nothing good is free and not everyone is going to like what is being done however, I think enough people enjoy the Comets where in the end it will be successful.

I can only think that Piss-ente did this after all the cars were being towed away and some of them belonged to personal friends of his. You don't expect Palmieri to do anything, do ya?

Let 'em cater to the Comets. UC will benefit from all these improvements for years once the Comets leave town.

Watching uc compared to comets game is like watching the blue sox over a yankees game. Why are uc fans so mad that utica has ahl. Last weeks game against bridgeport we all saw the ahl points leader who is now called up to the islanders. Big deal uc draws students for free and a 5 dollar ticket. Of course they can out draw the comets and good for them. But dont try and compare the ahl to uc against morrisvile hahahahahahahah

The only other reason UC draws a lot of fans is because they only play home games on weekends. Put in a couple of Tuesday and Wednesday games in there, then we'll see who shows up. Don't get me wrong, UC plays a good brand of hockey but obviously it's no comparison to the AHL. I hope they both prosper.

DO YA THINK??????? bass pro just opened a new store, how many years will it take for them to recoup their investment?? what about walmart and best buy who put new stores in at consumer square?? the aud was completely outdated to draw anything into town cept a division III team and a circus or two. when they get done with next summers expansion, new bathrooms, new restaurant, suites, new parking lot and new main entrance. it will be a asset to the city. its been neglected and under used for years and has lost money for years.com ets arent going any where, vancouver may leave eventually, but the flames will need a home. the devils in albany are loosing money as well as the rangers in hartford. they both have 15000 seat buildings with horrible attendance. and the comets averaging 3200 fans are making money!!!!!!
