Music changes for Sixers v Breakers

Props to Joe for making the necessary changes for the game tonight.

I saw him sitting by the fill-in music man, running the controls all night during the game and having the new guy take notes. Going for a change from "hit the road Jack" is ambitious but otherwise good job.

So fair game, I dished the criticism out so props to Joe for making things right.

It was plain awful at concourse level. We want to watch the game and not put up with that every week. One child asked to be taken home because of the noise....

It's a basketball match, you should be able to talk to the person next to you. It's really that simple....

The music and announcements, especially pre-game is way too loud.
Whatever genius thinks turning up the noise level makes it more enjoyable has no idea.

Also yelling out Hungry Jacks while the opposition are at the free throw line is way too loud also.

A suggestion to the brains trust running the sound at the arena, come sit up at around row P on the south side and see how much you enjoy it.

Was sitting south side row m and dont see a problem with the sound whatsoever and the person sitting next to me had no trouble hearing me at all...some people will always find something to complain about.

Volume was way up - I literally found myself putting my hands over my ears in an attempt to get some respite - in the women's game and I even had trouble talking to the woman behind the counter when buying food between the games because of the p.a. volume. Level seemed about the same level for the men's game, but how/when when the music was used around the men's game was MUCH better [more appropriate] than the week before, and in fact probably the best it's been all season.

it was too loud on one side, another side coukldnt hear it. all they could hear was BOOM/BOOM/BOOM

the middle aged man went home from the game at half time. I tend to agree with him.

I'm happy for half old stuff and half new stuff but pretty much just sat there like in a PL game.

And we pay how much for this as a ticketed member.

The headoffice didn't give a shit
