Re: Half-season tickets

You aren't allowed to exchange at the box office any more. I would also hope there aren't any Ticketmaster fees to use the season ticket holder website to exchange or buy tickets, otherwise it completely defeats the purpose, but since I cant log in I'm not really sure. To the above comment, I also a...

Re: Half-season tickets

Was talking to an Amerks rep last night and he confirmed the idea of them selecting your half-season package might be a thing. What I was told is the person behind this awesome idea is considering two options: first half or second half of the season. There will be some flexibility about changing ti...

Re: Wednesday Home Games

At the end of the day, I think we have an issue here with minor league sports taking a back seat in Rochester. The thing is, there are still teams out there pulling in decent crowds on a regular basis in the AHL. I know some stuff has been looked at in the past, like ticket prices across the league,...

Re: Wednesday Home Games

The only other solution is to go the Syracuse route, who literally plays every home game on a Friday or Saturday. I think 95% of their games are on those two nights. They may have one or two non prime dates. But that building is a dump and there’s no events to compete with. And I don’t particularly...

Re: Wednesday Home Games

I am also in the "Wednesday over Sunday" minority, but I think I would feel differently about it if it was Sunday night vs Sunday afternoon. I feel like afternoon games have a different feel to them and lack intensity. I don't know why. And I do think an early game on the tail end of a 3-in-3 is tou...

Re: Work To Do

That seems a little overly pessimistic. The more the Sabres succeed, the less likely they'll be calling up random AHL guys for extended tryouts in the spring. The more they succeed, the more casual fans in Rochester might actually pay attention to hockey and show up at an Amerks game or two. The mor...

Re: The Wait is Over! It All Starts Again Tonite

The plates only come with one burger or one dog, not the standard two. Still a good value with the sides. Will be curious if this 5.85 plate is the same or smaller. Did that change this year? Used to be a "real" plate in previous seasons, disappointing if true. Also the picture they show of the 5.8...

A Genny light and a garbage plate.

Re: The Wait is Over! It All Starts Again Tonite

Forgot about the beef on weck, saw it on Friday and thought to myself how people on here are going to be happy its back. Also I'm sure most of us have seen the $5.85 Genny and a plate deal on Wednesdays they're promoting. That's a crazy deal and while it won't pack the arena, it's one of the better ...

Re: The Wait is Over! It All Starts Again Tonite

Giving credit where credit is due regarding concessions: Went to the RIT game Saturday and didn't have time to grab food before hand. Tried those new "Distillery chicken fingers" they've been advertising, they're actually really good and way better than the old SMG chicken fingers and fries. I also ...
