Tailing the Komets

Komets' website honored by ECHL

From a Komets' press release:

The ECHL announced that the Fort Wayne Komets' website, Komets.com, is the 2013-14 recipient of the Website Award of Excellence. 


Fort Wayne was a finalist along with the Bakersfield Condors (BakersfieldCondors.com), Reading Royals (RoyalsHockey.com), Toledo Walleye (ToledoWalleye.com) and Utah Grizzlies (UtahGrizzlies.com).

All ECHL websites were reviewed by the staff of NewSport Media and were judged according to criteria including design, mobile readiness organization, site flow, update frequency and performance.

The Fort Wayne website was re-launched as a "new-and-improved" site in June, 2012, and promised improved navigation for all fans and a design that would enhance the fan's and visitor's experiences as well as integrate all of the Komets promotional, marketing and informational efforts through social media and the internet. 

Fort Wayne's Vice President Scott Sproat commented: "The goal of the new Komets.com is to provide a more total entertainment and involvement experience for Komet fans worldwide.  Also, we sincerely appreciate the efforts of Cirrus ABS for designing a fantastic site that will only get better as we move forward."

Cirrus ABS, located in Fort Wayne, designs and hosts Komets.com.  The Komets official team website is the first pro sports franchise site that Cirrus ABS developed.

In regards to the Hodgeman article....while it is nice to read about him, it appears the Komets are most likely not good enough to come back and play with, even though he may not get what he wants in an AHL/NHL contract...personally, I do not care if he comes back....wish him luck in his pursuits but his snob appeal is apparent.

Right, so he's supposed to turn down at least $500,000 in Europe to make $25,000 here? Consider me a snob, then, too.

For that delta I can take a snob label, no problem! Pretty much any other label, too!

It's interesting how people can look at an article and have such total diametrical attitude.  Nothing in it encouraged me to think Justin Hodgman had a "snob attitude".  He was telling it like it is, conveying  certain wants and wishes.  I think it was neat he even included the fact that someday he'd like to play for the Komets.  (Do I think it will happen)?  Well, maybe, but I'm not counting on it nor would criticize him if it doesn't happen.  (How many of us can look to the future with any sense of certainty )?  Yes, that's what I thought.  None.

His name will always reside in the chapter of great Komet memories.  But for now, grab the money while you can.
