An Idea to End our Home Court Woes...audience participation needed


I was just reading online about another sports club with major woes, not unlike the Nets. It's a German football team who couldn't score a goal and kept losing.

So the fans decided to 'help' the team find the goal.

Here is a link to the article in question of what exactly the fans did (i copied and pasted the story below but there is also a video in the link to show the fans live, exactly what they did)

Helpful fans show goal-shy team where goal is

By Eurosport | World of Sport

When a team goes through a goal drought, most fans have a simple answer: a few abusive chants from the terraces, followed by a moan in the pub after the game.

But fans of German regional side FC Magdeburg decided to take a more constructive and creative approach - one that has now made them globally famous.

Reasoning that their men had gone without a goal for five matches simply from having forgotten where the goal was, they decided to take giant dayglo arrows to the match to point their heroes in the right direction.

Together with a giant banner reading 'Wir zeigen euch, wo das tor steht!' (rough translation: Don't worry chaps, we'll show you the goal is), they left their men in no doubt as to what their jobs were during their home clash against BAK '07 on Sunday.

The most brilliant thing of all? It actually worked. Ten minutes from the end of the game Magdeburg's American striker Chris Wright popped up to end the club's 558-minute dry spell with an equaliser that looked like earning the side a point.

It wasn't to be a happy ending, however: BAK then found the net in the penultimate minute to secure the win.

Somehow, however, we can't help thinking that the plucky Magdeburg fans still went home with smiles on their faces.

Anyway I just thought with all the lack of fans attending games and getting destroyed on a nightly basis it could be a really good idea to get a crowd of NetsDaily posters behind a basket with all these big arrows to help show the team where the basket is because they are having such problems with seeing the basket and with their sight lines etc.

I could just picture 50 people showing the way to score with these things and as a fellow poster (called 624) on RealGM stated, we could point to the bench when Petro enters the game.

Anyway I just thought it was a great wee story of a fellow set of struggling fans looking to help the team. It would be hilarious to see.

What say yee, could some fans muster up the numbers to have a wee bit of fun and support the team, remember there isnt many games left in Jersey, could be a way to get a bit of atmosphere going???
