Boti vs music at 36ers games
Boti made a comment about the "rock concert" at 36ers games in his match report for the loss to the Bullets.
Today there's a longer piece quoting Darryl Pearce making a stronger statement.
"...but Adelaide's (PA system) is just relentless with its blaring music - on and on and on," he said.The problem with this one, I believe, is that everyone wants something different. Some don't like any gaps in the music, some don't like music when the 36ers have possession, others don't want much music at all.
What do you think?
Adelaide rallied to drag itself back to 83-90 with 5:59 left but any support from the 4000-plus crowd was drowned out by the remorseless music. While announcer Neil Stanton was screaming for crowd participation, his pleas too were mostly drowned by Gnarls Barkley's latest hit. Brisbane ran away for a 115-93 rout.In the late stages of recent games, I've seen people walking out and wondered if the crowd could really get the team back into it - we have a lot of doubters this season (I won't deny being one after the last two fourth quarter fade outs).
What's better? Lessening the music at those times and giving the crowd a chance to boost the team but risking having dead patches that sound awkward and reduce the atmosphere?
Maybe trying to better control the music when the crowd has picked up a bit?
