Dear Mr. Stern

RedsArmyAdmin June 4, 2008 Uncategorized 6 Comments

Aren't I special. I received an email from NBA commissioner David Stern today touting the new All-Access portion of NBA.com. Check it out:

I hope you are enjoying this extraordinary season, filled with intense competition and exciting performances by the world's greatest athletes. We are excited to announce the launch of All-Access–the NBA's free, official membership program–and to welcome you as an inaugural member. All-Access provides you, our most passionate fans, with exclusive benefits and new ways to go behind the scenes and get into the action.

So I've taken the time to craft a response. Let me know what you think:

Dear Mr. Stern,

Instead of wasting your time with All Access why don't you do something to improve the horrid work of your referees. On the heels of the Tim Donaghy scandal, I thought the NBA would make quality officiating a priority. However, fans were treated to a big, steaming pile of crap calls this playoff season. Joey Crawford, Bennett Salvatore and Ken Mauer, to name a few, continue to embarass themselves and the NBA. Just once, I'd like to see some consistency. While I have your attention, I want to personally thank you for starting all Finals games after 9pm EST. Nevermind us working folks, what about the fact that no one under the age of 15 will be unable to watch the second half of games? It's clear you don't give a damn about this generation of fans, and would rather grab the advertising cash.

Sincerely,

BigMck

    “You celtics fans are such ingrates. if you hate what david stern had done for the league then why don’t you just stop fucking watching it. fucking idiots. god i hate you boston celtics fans.”
    If you hate us Boston fans, why don’t you just stop fucking blogging with us? moron.
    9pm starts, on Sundays, Tues, and Thursdays? Work nights, fine.. that just stinks for my boss ;). Seriously, the kids are going nuts about this. At least make it a Saturday night game, or a Sunday day game. The whole, “people who love the game will watch it whenever it’s on” is true and it’s a heck of a problem to enjoy, (better than NOT having the C’s in the Finals), but not when kids who are now getting drawn back into the game can’t watch the end of the game. Lost revenue 10 years down the line.

    You should have mentioned how the NBA Cares campaign is the biggest joke in all of advertising. NBA Cares, where guns in pillowcases, rape and marijuana possession/open container arrests happen.
