The Nets Will Clothe You to Watch Games

And they don’t really care who you root for, so long as you show up. Understandably scandalized Nets fan Gerard writes in: “So what can an organization do when there are hardly any fans watching your team anyway? Besides removing ‘New Jersey‘ from their away jerseys, you assembly a ten game package with reversible jerseys! In that way, if the Bostons Celics come to town and Kevin Garnett has 5 blocks at halftime, you just switch your Yi jersey into a Garnett one! As a Nets fan I don’t want to wear a visiting team’s jersey! Come on now.”

    They should have Jay Z and Beyonce do their greatest hits at halftime, to keep them relevant and maybe obessed over the team and bring in fans that way, but the reversible jerseys is sad, they need to sell this team and move them to Europe and call them the Flights and still have Jay Z try to rap hard and Beyonce singing hooks for the Flights to try to keep them relevant until Seattle needs the dynamic duo with the new team called the Knights.

    Thats kinda nuts
    I remember in 96 the Magic gave out these red Beat DA Bulls signs at the game and every Chicago Fan just cut out the “Beat” part and had Bulls Signs all Over the Orena. There is nothing worse than Opposing fans cheering in ur Building

    That is so sad. This is my hometown team, and the reason we don’t support them the way we do is because of the team’s owner and franchise. If you don’t care about your own team, why should we?

    I am that Gerard. And even though I’m dutch (yes, I live in The Netherlands), if I would be at a home game of the Nets this would be really, really weird.

    ENDS: they did throw in a (Dwight) Howard. It’s the Brook Lopez jersey. Yup. That doesn’t make any sense at all. Of all the teams I could’ve choose from as a European NBA fan, I decided to stick with the Nets in the late nineties (before that I was a Bulls fan). But I’m gonna keep rooting for them, just because of guys like Harris, CDR, Lopez and Hayes.

    As a Nets fan, I’m ashamed. After suffering a longgg time, it looked like this franchise turned the corner when Captain Kidd came to town. Then the Rat took over. I don’t know if I’ve ever been more embarrassed to call myself a Nets fan. Get this team to Newark, fast.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Wow.. I just feel bad for the Nets now. They need to move their team to Newark or Brooklyn, but do it ASAP.

  • Josh D
