Boti: 36ers Make Club Legends Pay For Tickets
An absolute joke which needs to be corrected ASAP if true.
"RIDDLE me this, Commissioner. If Magic Johnson wanted to attend a Lakers game or Michael Jordan a Bulls game, would their former NBA clubs charge them for tickets?
Afraid that's what happens here and explains why Kevin Brooks - and a lot of other former 36ers - no longer attend Adelaide NBL games.
Surely it can only be a positive for ex-players to be seen around the concourse mixing with today's fans, especially in Heritage Round.
But as for goodwill and retaining links with the past, it just makes sense.
If all the corporate boxes aren't sold, a "past players" box also would be a good idea.
Charging guys who helped build the club to a four-time champion? Are there really that many former greats that it would impact on the seating for the 5000-diehards who get along come rain or shine?
