The NBA owners and players have decided it is more important to posture and fight over percentage points of the already billions of dollars they are earning (from US, the fans by the way) each NBA season. During the negotiating, the losing of games, the back and forth over revenue sharing, and the cancelling of games, is either side really considering the fans in all of this? In all sports, owners and players are only worried about the money. So why don't we remind them where they get it from? The NBA owners want a lockout? I'm calling for a FANOUT. We the fans need to step up and make sure they know who makes it possible. I am asking all NBA fans to "ballcott" the NBA this upcoming season if they ever even get it together enough to have games. It's simple. I'm not asking anyone to stop rooting for their team. I'm not even asking you not to watch games. Just for one season, we can take action. For the 2011-2012 season don't do 2 things: 1. Don't go to any NBA games. 2. Don't buy any NBA merchandise. No jerseys, hats, stickers, cups, NBA TV packages. Nothing.
If we do these 2 things the league will have to take notice, and think twice next time they want to cancel our favorite game. How much revenue would they even have to share with each other if we do this? I'm encouraging people to do this, just for one season. Why should we let them have all the power? Sign this petition if you agree with me and you are willing to sacrifice just a little bit this one season (and it will save you some money). Let's show some union solidarity of our own NBA fans. Ballcott the NBA and show them who this is really all about.
