If I was a member of the Pacers Marketing team, I'd sell my left nut to get Rupert involved with the game Saturday.

Imagine the intros like this:

The arena is black. On the Monitor you read:

You've seen him in the wild.
You've seen him survive.
But you haven't seen anything until you've seen him at a Pacers game...

Out comes Rupert waving a Pacers flag doing his crazy yell while "Welcome to the Jungle" is blaring in the background.


Or maybe not... it was just an idea! :pepper:

Do you even have a reason for hating him? A legit reason? (His appearance doesn't count)

I don't hate him. I just find him boring. Don't see the fascination. He gets voted off twice and still ends up with a million based on what?

Who the heck is Rupert? At first I thought you meant the guy who runs Hello Delli outside the Letterman show theater but did he win a million dollars or something?

Why? Do you think he'd draw a single person to a Round 2, Game 5?

Rupert is garbage. I hated him from day 1 on Pearl.

Doug, you don't say much, but when you do it's a knockout.

It isn't so much about him drawing people for a single game, it is about marketing. The NBA is far more than basketball it is also about entertainment. It is also about giving the crowd and in turn your team a boost.

I thought it was so cool, many moons ago, when Golden State had RUN TMC. Now, I don't care for rap music, but it was pretty awesome when they opened the game with RUN DMC. I've never understood why more teams don't take advantage of their famous sons.

David Lee Roth is a weird dude, but he is an Indiana native and was a member of one of the greatest rock bands of all time. How cool would it be to have him come out and sing "Unchained" at a game? I don't know, I'm sure expense has something to do with it, but it would be cool. You have Mellencamp out there, but please... NO MICHAEL JACKSON!!! :pepper:

Rupert Rocks!!!
I spent a little extra on my ticket to game 5 just hoping Rupert comes out to get the crowd going!

I haven't seen Survivor since it's first year, but have read about Rupert.

As someone who will be in the crowd, I think Brichard's idea would be a lot of fun.

I go to see the game and get a little tired of the same old, same old extras anyway.

I would rather pluck my eyes out than watch a reality show. I would imagine that there are enough people like me that he would not be that much of a draw. Or am I in that big of a minority on that.

I'm with you on the shows Ragnar, but as a gimmick to get the crowd fired up???? Genious!!!

Well I didn't see Rupert at the game, but I did see the Heat Dance Team, much more pleasing to look at but annoying support of the other team.
