    Im not sure how many teams are doing things like this but i just saw a commercial featuring timberwolves owner Glenn Taylor.

    he stated that next season the t-wolves were reducing prices on 95% of their seats, offering certain season tickets seats for as little as $5 per game, andoffering a money back guarantee for any (season?) ticket holders who lose their job during the season.


    i know that somehow this must be beneficial for the t-wolves but it still seems like a decent move by the franchise, i wonder how many other teams are doingthings like this?

    good move by management

    they dont make any money if the seats are empty, might as well make it cheap to go to games

    Damn, and to think I paid $100 for nosebleed seats in Dallas a year and a half ago.


    I will not be attending any games at face value.

    if there are ownership of the year awards, and there may be, Glen Taylor is about to get it, because along with this I'm sure he's about to show McHalethe door. Bravo Taylor...Bravo.

    i remember reading here not too long agao about them selling their tix based on whatever draft pick they got in the lottery. as in it would cost $41 if theygot the first pick, $210 if they got the 5th........ etc etc..... not bad at all.

    Whats the point of a sports team doing this? I mean i can understand car companies because it a monthly payment. If you buy season tix in September and loseyour job in December the tickets would already be paid for.

    Sounds more like a broke move to me. Team sucks, attendance is down, economy stinks, it's the T-Wolves. I'd rather go sledding withthe wolves than go to a game.

    But yeah, nice move by the Wolves. I think the Heat did something similar too for this season. And they have already cut all ticket prices for NEXT season.

    You would be eligible for reimbursement for the remaining tickets. So for example... If you lost your job half way through the season you could return theother half of your tickets in order to get half of your money back.

    I would imagine that their point is that they want to sell more tickets - even to people who are worried about losing their job. It couldencourage some people to buy them who maybe wouldn't with their job situation.

    i would go to every NBA game i could..no matter who's playing. Thats just how much I love the game. any opportunity i have, i go and love every minute ofit. however, once you have seats in the third row behind the hoop at the Palace, your views do change a bit.
