Thread: These are the kind of things that keep that arena empty.

  1. #1

    Default These are the kind of things that keep that arena empty.

    This has got to be the lowest moment I can remember while being a Pacer fan. Had a guy with star potential handed to you and didn't have the sense to take it. Team had momentum from the season, the post season and had the fans excited and then end up with this. So the arena will continue to be empty again. The Pacers wasted another chance to win people over. Nobody will pay to watch Plumlee. This is mind boggling.

    Lowest moment!? Didn't we have our team fight fans in the middle of a game? Please be satirical.

    Seriously? The casual fan isn't paying attention to who the Pacers drafted at 26. We just went to the second round and battled the Heat, who won the championship. You are delusional if you think this has any impact on attendance.

    Are you serious? We won 2 games against the Heat without one of the best big men in the league. May not have won 1 game if they had Bosh for the series. You think the casual fan doesn't pay attention to who the team drafts. Haven't you even read this message board? The casual fan doesn't make the difference at the box office. The rabid fan does and they are pissed.

    I meant at the draft. Of course it is not worse than the brawl. Sorry

    You couldn't be more off base. The casual fan does make the difference at the box office. Everyone on PD supported the team through the past seven years and sure as hell isn't going to stop after our best season in a long time because they don't like our late first round pick.

    Well, my father-in-law, two brothers-in-law and I were seriously considering upgrading back up to season tickets from our 11-game mini-plans and officially decided against it during our draft party tonight. So it impacted the attendance by four people.

    That shocks me. Are you all new fans. 26th picks are a crapshoot at best. If you can gets guy who is in your regular rotation for 2 or 3 years you have hit the jockpot.

    I do care if you upgrade your tickets or not, but this shoud not be the reason

    People can call it a crapshoot, but it's a fact that there were better players on the board.

    The casual fan never buys a season ticket. They may attend 1 or 2 games a year. The season ticket base needs to grow or we will never increase attendance. Please tell me how this kind of thing will get someone interested in buying a ticket. This draft was a complete waste of time. I hope everyone that went to the draft parties had a great time.

    The issue here isn't that Plumlee is that bad, it's that the opportunity to have PJ3 is that good. That's why people are so upset, not because Plumlee wouldn't typically be an acceptable late first. The problem is that you could have had a guy that was a projected top 5 pick pick, and instead you took a no-risk/no-reward guy.

    And as a side note, I don't think this really affected attendance, but I do think it adversely affected this teams ability to grow through the draft. Just seemed like a complete waste.

    We don't know that. None of these players have ever played an NBA game. It is not a fact, not at all. I'm willing to trust Bird and our scouts

    People are making this big of a deal out of the 26th pick? Now I remember why I don't hang around the forum much in the offseason. Wake me up when free agency starts.

    just an observation, but most of the suicide squad on PD seem to be of the newer generation of posters (not just tonight, but in general)

    calm down folks and the place will be a much better one

    I was a season ticket holder from 1985-2005, so I wouldn't necessarily classify myself as a "new" fan. And like it or not, tonight is the reason I'm not upgrading. I'm not asking for a game-changer at 26. But at the bare minimum it would be nice to take one of the dozen other better athletes (at least) still on the board that fill a bigger need.
