I just had to bring this up. I am sitting on my couch watching the introductions to the celtics game and getting chills. I know there are a lot of uncontrollable factors (pressure for the series and all), but seriously if we could get an environment like this, it would be great.
Or like Atlanta's, that place has been insane
yeah I know, but still. I am just dreaming about it.
yeah they compared the arena to a cemetery or something before. We could be that change
I think filling in the gaps on the TV coverage is still an issue and I know you are working on it. What's the prospects on HD for next year?
I love the idea of exclusive content on the website. Specifically, player blogs and other video content. Maybe even a daily update or feature. Some ideas:
- Player blogs
- Coach (or assistant coaches) blog
- Fan profiles
- Behind the scenes tours
- Day in the life
- Live practice cams
I could go on but you get the idea. The thing that you have is the product and access to the players. That kind of stuff we CAN'T get here on The Planet or at ESPN or wherever. And if you're doing blogs, REALLY do blogs. As in don't water it down for public consumption. If all I'm getting is the corporate line, I become a lot less interested because the content isn't genuine.
The other special content that would be nice would be some kind of sidebar with the various players' charity organizations. I know Okafor and Wallace both have pretty big projects. Links to their sites with weekly/bi-weekly updates would be nice and generate positive buzz for the organization.
SOMEONE will pay for THIS!
I agree about having player's blogs added. That would be nice. I have enjoyed the behind the scenes videos on the new website with Jared Dudley and Sean May.
I would also enjoy a couple of bobblehead night promotions next season...Dudley and Carroll, perhaps?
I live in upstate, South Carolina so I am still concerned about the television schedule. Other than that, I have been happy with the way things have gone.
I have been really impressed with the arena every time I have gone to a game. The staff has always been really friendly and helpful which you don't find very often anymore. They have always made me want to come back.
