Our Adelaide gameday experience was fantastic

Just want to say - we attended the Adelaide double header Saturday.

A couple of first time fans also headed along in our group.

Everyone really enjoyed the event - we watched the womens game then the men. Music was good ( although no sandstorm )games were entertaining for home fans (great to hear some noise). the double header flowed nicely with a good crowd and a sprinkling of other bits n pieces. Was a solid investment for the ticket price - we will be back.

Good to hear this is why teams should always try and put on a good night for the fans because you don't know who is there for the first time.

I remember Jordan said every game he played he treated it as there would be at least one person in the crowd seeing him for the first time and he wanted to impress them.

Why the hate for Sandstorm?

no sandstorm hate - think you misread it - "music was good (although no sandstorm)'.= would have enjoyed sandstorm.

No zombie nation as well - would have been good little 30 secs of each.

Ohhh I did misread it and you are exactly right. The NBL clubs for some reason are allergic to obvious tracks like Sandstorm and Zombie Nation which is quite perplexing and sad.

OP - Get along on the 11th and I'll make sure there is some Sandstorm for ya!

As long as it's played at a reasonable volume and where it FITS, not over the top of the game so it's a distraction/block on the crowd.

A big step forward [= less over-powering noise] from where it was a couple of seasons ago admittedly, but it was sneaking up here at times Saturday.

Seems to go fairly well until the focus becomes the music and not the game. If I had to find an explanation I'd say the 'driver' actually forgets the music is running at times, or else decides it is 'too good' to stop, despite what is happening on court.

Well-managed music can add to the experience - it's a great gap-filler - but its the game people come to see and the on-court action that stimulates the crowd.

thanks Skip - we will be there on the 11th.

And poster above - agreed the music needs to complement the game atmosphere.

Gameday Experience has evolved fantastically well since the dead wood was removed and Big Joe came in and shook things up. Well done to everyone involved in game night.
