More money is definitely fantastic, with the cap going up and us probably having to pick in the market in the next few years its great news. 

 

also good news that we could financially afford a buyout... you know....

Thanks for the insight DJ Eco! I always see Bwin when I watch European matches (especially MUFC) but never knew about the PartyPoker connection.

It will be interesting to see how Harris handles Charlton Athletic. Currently close to the relegation zone in the Championship (1 division below the Premier League) but it wasn't too long ago they were in the top flight (2006-07). Talk about potentially owning 3 teams in 3 of the biggest leagues.

These 'major' announcements always disappoint. My first reaction was that the Sixers would play a preseason game in Newark. If its not that, its something along the lines of both teams acquiring a new food vendor or something woefully underwhelming.

Huge announcement! Devils just picked up Urbom off waivers! Prep for the Cup parade.

Yeah apparently I heard through others that the Devils started following them either on Twitter or Instagram or both.  I give the all star game a 50% chance of happening with the party poker having 40% chance of happening, sixers moving 8% chance and world series of poker being 2% chance of happening.

 

All Star game is out


I like poker but that is a bit of a letdown from a "huge" or "major" announcement.

 

Exactly

 

No reason for them to trump this up like we are announcing the signing of some amazing Russian hockey player to a lifetime deal worth over $100M.

A new sponsorship while is a significant story, is hardly what I would call a major announcement.

There are going to be very few announcements that wouldn't be leaked by the media if it involved something like an All-Star game or what not. If it is sponsorship related, that's big for the franchise. To be able to spend money as the cap goes up, they need some big partnerships. And, they'll have to hype it as much as possible for that sponsor.

 

I'm sure everyone will be annoyed, though.

 

Yup.

 

Can't wait to see the reaction to their nonsensical announcement that most fans will not give 2 sh!ts about

Even the Sixers playing a preseason game in Newark would be a flop of an announcement

Yup! It may not be the sexy announcement people want, but a major sponsorship deal is great for the franchise. Those are the types of deals that keep organizations stable.

 

..truth-be-told, we're probably playing in Ohio by now, if it wasn't for that MSG-TV deal.

I'd rather it be finally unveiling Stadium Series jerseys, but we're probably not getting anything special for it since we're the only one who hasn't unveiled anything by now.

 

Hearing rumors they want to find some way of putting a casino in the arena, which I think is still illegal and Atlantic City might have a problem with that. But if they did, great, more people who buy a ticket to get in, but end up not paying attention to the game. I always wondered why people bother with the Goal Bar, you gotta buy a ticket to get in, you can't bring your beer you buy there to your seats (it has to be consumed within the Goal Bar area by law) and so you go all the way to the arena just to end up watching the game on TV like you would for cheaper at a bar or at home. Kind of silly

Maybe we are unveiling the jerseys tomorrow, and there is a big PARTY POKER patch on the shoulders!

This.. Not sure why all the bashing like we've been robbed of something.. I'm very excited to see a big, new sponsorship bringing money to the team.. Hell, I go to so many games that I wouldn't even mind some new signage around the arena (like "PartyPoker Fire Lounge" or something, I know it sounds stupid lol)

 

And it's cool to see new ownership making splashes to get the team in more headlines that aren't about financial woes or publicized legal battles over money.. I don't know if other people are sensing it too but our fanbase is like 3 times more whiny than it was in previous years, even including 2010 - 2011

Don't bet on a SS jersey.

 

I was actually thinking the casino idea earlier too.  Current fan zone can be slots and Fire Lounge can be tables.  Boom.

Well let's not get ahead of ourselves haha.. I was just guessing and my brother was doing his best at putting all the pieces together with what I think made a whole lot of sense. We'll see tomorrow!

For the record, the law only governs liquor drinks, not beer. I've gotten beer there before and brought it to my seats. But if I got a gin-tonic, I had to finish it there. For some people it's a good idea. Casual fans who aren't emotionally invested in the game have a good time there and the drinks cost as much as a New York City nightclub, so it's a good enough revenue source I wouldn't want them to get rid of.
