Current Game Schedule: No Current Games |
I'd tell the Blazers, either accept (in the future) much less than the 10 Saturday home dates you got this season (which is almost the same exact time frame as the Thunder's home season), or take a hike! They only had about 5,000 at the last Saturday home game. The Thunder would have sold out no matter who they played on that night of the week.
"The fans of this city deserve to have the games at the Ford Center, especially the south side fans. The Blazers’ success was one of the reasons the MAPS (Metropolitan Area Projects) program passed.”
Look, I enjoy the Blazers and like to go to games when I'm free. However, they're not the big dog in OKC anymore and need to learn to adjust that. I'm sure they're mad about weekend dates but so what? If they don't like what is left after the Thunder games... take it to Cox or State Fair. That place was built for an NBA/NHL team, not a CHL franchise. The Blazers are damn lucky. All they need to do to see how lucky they are is to take a gander around on their road trips. A lot of the CHL home sites are absolute pits. OKC (and Tulsa for that matter) are beyond lucky to be playing in what they are.
The south side? As in "The Ford Center is on the south side of Reno and people from the south side can't cross the street"? Was there a rule of some sort that I wasn't made aware of when I moved here?
