I don't know about the rest of you, but I HATE it when I go to the Fieldhouse for a game and I see tons of local Indianapolis people wearing jerseys of and rooting for the big time teams (Boston, Miami(now), Cleveland(before), Orlando, etc.) that are in town for the night.
They can root for whatever team/player they want, I get it, but it just kind of hurts. It would be nice to see more loyalty to the ol' hometown Pacers.
Anyway, for some reason, I was looking at the Nets website and came across this promotion.
Notice the jersey you get when you buy this ticket plan.
That is REALLY sad. Not only are the Nets expecting their fans to root against them when Miami comes to town, but they are facilitating it. It is a Wade jersey, but ,I mean, remember the guy who your team publicly courted and was publicly shunned by!? Why root for his team, at home?!
Really lame. Ugh.
