Trouble at 36ers HQ?
Am I the only one incredibly dissapointed at lack of any significant communication between the club and its fans this pre-season?.
Let's take a look at another club to further illustrate my point.
Wollongong have created a club anthem and released it to the fans, as well as being very active on all forms of social media including Instagram. When it comes to responding to fan questions on all topics in the comments section of their facebook they consistently reply in a highly professional manner and actually answer the question. The Hawks online store has been well structured and has been selling this seasons merchandise for close to a month now.
Say what you want about the name change, Melbourne United have been on fire this preseason on and off the court. Having a large multitude of merchandise available for weeks as well as frequent public appearances to promote the season. Their social media has been constantly updated with unique player profiles and photos of all the day to day events the club are getting involved with.
Meanwhile the 36ers faithful are yet to see any update from Deans Desk for a significant amount of time, especially given the fact the season is only 7 days away and the lack of communication received from the top of the organization has been poor at best. The 36ers online store has been closed and under maintenance for over two months and remains so to this very moment, whilst other clubs are happily selling this years merchandise to their hungry fan bases, Adelaide have been completely inactive and silent on this front for an awfully long time.
Other than the 36ers 'fan day' (which was awfully timed being held on a work/school day during working hours) and the 'Amazing Race' event, can anyone honestly say they are satisfied with the clubs presence this preseason? Especially given we were one game away from a championship 7 months ago.
I don't want this to come across as me 'having a go'. I am simply majorly concerned at what I am seeing (or not seeing) from the club I love. These are not good signs at all. Can anyone perhaps provide an explanation for the 36ers silence this preseason?
And what can we as the fans, do to help this club which seems to be in some sort of situation.
