Role playing time. You are Jordan and just bought the Bobcats. What would you do to bring more fans to the games and also restore the goodwill with the community?

Some of these may sound really odd but here it goes...

-Market the Bobcats at local gyms/YMCAs
-Much more player-school appearances
-Build a unique pre-game tradition thats INTERACTIVE with the fans (Panthers don't even do that)
-Create a Bobcat basketball summer camp?
-Make the arena more kid friendly (Those lil' ones care about having fun as much as us winning)
-Cheaper, yet quality BBQ
-At least 2 Billboards on 277, and two on 77 north and south
-Gigantic blue lights that dance in the night sky above the arena during games
-Build a huge interactive Bobcat fan zone near the BOFA
-Replace orange with a new color to represent a NEW Charlotte sports era
-Win

I think the buzz-o-meter (prob wrong name) that the hornets had at the old coliseum was one of the best ideas ever. It was the noise meter that had several hornets graduating from small to large.

I remember screaming louder and longer than I could just to see if we could get that thing to the highest level.

Love the buzzometer thingy.

I also like keeping track of hustle stats...I still award those to myself. I can get a triple double if I include hustle stats.

it would help if they'd air the games state wide. no bars i've been to here in wilmington have the nba package, and the links to watch streams provided to me by huddlers often stutter in and out. it's hard as hell to see a game down here.

This. Half the time we can't even get the games in Charlotte.

Request to MJ: Give us a Bobcat's network please. Use PBS for all I care! it is in HD.

I thought TW carried most of the games? They need to be on a local channel in each area of the state.

They do carry it in Charlotte. But a lot of times they don't show the games. Friday night the Memphis game wasn't on. At one point it was like 3 games in a row weren't shown. It makes no sense when you're in the playoff hunt and you're trying to get a fan base.

Its on one of those Fox Sports channels. I've got At&t U-verse. Maybe it's not on Time Warner. I thought they had made a deal with FS to start putting the games on.
