I understand the money thing. I can afford to buy Spurs tickets, or at least will be able to again once my new job starts, like the team and the arena, but I've only paid to go 4 or 5 times in the 9 years I've lived down here.
And I won't be here to see the day
It all dries up and blows away
I'd hang around just to see
But they never had much use for me
In Levelland. (James McMurtry)
I couldn't get any tickets from TicketBa***rd Friday 12/15 for the Knicks game, but the brokers had plenty that they were selling for below face value.
Kind of bizzare to see relatively few people in the stands for a game where tickets could not be bought directly.
Another night, another backside-kicking. They just hit you from so many sides, now, in waves. It's like a cavalry, running down hill and trampling you underfoot. You have no tactical advantage, you're just swinging wildly in the mud, and the best strategy might be to play dead.
They are an absolute onslaught right now.

The activities of a company associated with buying and selling a product or service. It includes advertising, selling and delivering products to people. People who work in marketing departments of companies try to get the attention of target audiences by using slogans, packaging design, celebrity endorsements and general media exposure. The four 'Ps' of marketing are product, place, price and promotion.
If your product is not desired, or is just plain not true, then no matter how good your marketing is the prudct will not be able to sell.
