Respect the crowd - Intros

Anyone else feel a little disrespected by the 36ers last night by not coming out to greet the fans when they were introduced last night?

Home opener, 1st game of the season, introducing this years team, and its new players... I personally thought it was very poor.

I was stunned at so many things last night and this was one of them..

No wonder they had no chemistry on court, no team huddle and push around, no high fives for each there let alone the crowd...

SOmething was really really wrong last night.

There was no leader and not even Gibbo was firing up his team.

Gibbo and Wilson had nothing going on between them.

The bench was flat

The announcer had nothing for the crowd

The music was rubbish

THe dancers did nothing for the crowd

What the hell was going on.

Not to mention the confusion for both teams on the reffing.

Speaking of screw-ups, what about when the shot clock kept restarting to 14 seconds...

New FIBA rule this season. 14 seconds is all you get after an offensive rebound

Did not feel disrespected by the intro but thought at least for the first game it would be nice to line up, especially for the new guys.

We were there with about 7 minutes to go until tip off, and there was no interaction with the crowd whatsoever. Dissapointing effort.

Im disrespected by the small roster, this team is going to struggle to make any noise at all. Really annoyed at where the 6ers have gone since game 3 in Perth. As a season ticket holder ive seen some things, but never have a I felt a season was lost so early on. Not even under Marty Clarke.

Have a bet on the 6'ers to finish bottom $17.Cos that's what they are now.

Agree, Cairns got a half hearted intro just poorly dished out. Ours, was Ok but team huddle v acknowledgement? Go figure.
Music really sucked, lots of boom/boom crap.
Keep this up and watch the numbers dwindle.
Its entertainment as well as a sport. If you wanna watch basketball with no music or thrill, go watch a cabl game or local.

CABL games have music and some clubs have great atmosphere.

The 36ers are not paying $17 to finish bottom, but to win the championship.

Just returned as a club member after several years of getting over Marty Clark. I'm worried and delusional after Friday nights presentation!!
