Pacers: Where's the love?

The Indiana Pacers have one of the best records in the NBA, but the team ranks 26th in the league in attendance. Why aren't you going to Pacers games?

We're still transitioning from Super Bowl mania back to hoops. We'll be back. Promise. [53 votes] (16%)
It simply costs too much to attend games, between tickets, parking and food, especially when we can see a decent high school game essentially for free. [177 votes] (53%)
The team doesn't have a Reggie-like superstar who connects with fans and serves as the face of the team. [71 votes] (21%)
We're not sure this team is for real yet. We'll wait until the playoffs to pass judgment. [33 votes] (10%)

  1. I am also a "vet" of several Cirque shows and this one left me flat. It didn't have the amount of acrobatic stunts as the others that I have seen. I am still glad that I went to it and look forward to the next one but I put Varekai as my least favorite.

  2. Looking at the two companies - in spite of their relative size to one another -- Ricker's image is (by all accounts) pretty solid and reputable. Their locations are clean, employees are friendly and the products they offer are reasonably priced. By contrast, BP locations are all over the place and their reputation is poor, especially when you consider this is the same "company" whose disastrous oil spill and their response was nothing short of irresponsible should tell you a lot. The fact you also have people who are experienced in franchising saying their system/strategy is flawed is a good indication that another "spill" has occurred and it's the AM-PM/Ricker's customers/company that are having to deal with it.

  3. Daniel Lilly - Glad to hear about your points and miles. Enjoy Wisconsin and Illinois. You don't care one whit about financial discipline, which is why you will blast the "GOP". Classic liberalism.

  4. Isn't the real reason the terrain? The planners under-estimated the undulating terrain, sink holes, karst features, etc. This portion of the route was flawed from the beginning.

  5. You thought no Indy was bad, how's no fans working out for you? THe IRl No direct competition and still no fans. Hey George Family, spend another billion dollars, that will fix it.
