Sydm KINGS FANS: A message from the Sydney Kings

Hi everybody,

This is Dave from the Sydney Kings. If you were registered as an Early Bird you would have already heard from me. First off I want to apologise for the email glitch that happened last night. It was rather embarrassing, undoubtedly, and I deeply regret it. I can say that all of us including myself have been working day and night in order to get this thing set up properly, and going forward I have full confidence that we will get it right for our fans.

I wanted to connect with you guys here to get some solid feedback on what you would like to see happening with the team. Personally, as a fan foremost and an employee second, I am thrilled that the new Kings have been built from the top down the right way. This starts from former coach and Kings legend Bob Turner as General Manager, Ian 'Moose' Robilliard as Head Coach and former champion Brian Goorjian in a consultancy role. We are also very excited to have former Perth coach Conner Henry on as an Assistant Coach.

If there is anything that you feel can be improved, based on what we've established so far, please let me know and I will personally endeavour to make it happen.

Many of the issues relating to ticket sales on our website have now been resolved. Check out our site and see for yourselves! Remember if you were an early bird you will need to log in (PM me for help if you need any).

Finally, I just want to talk some basketball and this board is definitely the best place to do it in Oz.

I look forward to hearing what you have to say, positive or negative. Bring on the Kings!

Kind regards,
Dave

Best lyrics ever. also the sound effects, especially the scratching, are just cool. It's like it was made in a ProStudio. $1.69 well spent.

Yep I'm for real.

Bob and Moose are a little busy at the moment. I'm here to act as an intermediary.

Bob already post here, under a different username. I can't remeber which one.

But seriously, what difference does it make who conveys the message? Kings fans needed to be informed of a few issues. Whether it came from Moose, Goorj, or one of the hangers-on like BJ Carter, is irrelevant.

It is Dave Robuck, the club's ticket and sponsor servicing manager.

Then he is the perfect person to relay a ticketing issue, and good on him for doing so.

Indeed, it's refreshing that have someone like Dave that's ready to stand up, face the music & do his best to put things right.
Now hear me out Dave, give all the Kings fans that are on my "contact & friends list" Platinum seats, & we're done mate.
Sometimes giving a little, brings a lot. Look after the goodens & they crowd out the bads.

I'd very much like that to happen. I love'm both, & if they've clashed in the past, now's be the perfect chance for them to put it all behind 'em & celebrate the return of the team that they both love.

Haha I'd love to instigate such an emotional reunion!

Dave,

Any idea if Rodney O will be back? What about the band? How are season tickets going, have the Kings got much corporate support?

Don't expect Rodney O back. Not sure about the band yet. Ticket sales and support have been FANTASTIC. Honestly, it's amazing how many people share the same goal as us...returning the Kings to glory. We are focused on packing the Kingdome once again and I promise you that people are underrating the team. We will be competitive.

Dave,

I'm sure you've heard of a guy called Clint Dogg. He is a real DJ. He produces his own music and has even been locked up before, which makes him look like a real bad boy. What are the chances of getting him for the Kings?

I understand that with his hire, he also provides a guy in a Silent Bob costume, who can hold up promotional signs for you at half time. He has plenty of experience at it.

When someone registers here claiming to be from a club, it's pretty easy to verify whether they are for real.

With his repertoire it would have worked especially well had the team been called The Mack instead of The Kings, but you can't have everything I suppose.
And talking about cred, he records rap tracks like, makes music videos of them like, they get played on Rage like.

I hope that's a long term goal and the immediate one is to turn in solid performances both on and off the court. Being fiscally responsible is more important for you than glory right now.

The vast majority of Kings fans on here are woofing about glory and championships ad nauseum; and when it starts leaking into the club hierarchy it's a cause for concern. Hopefully, with you, it's just high spirits and you do have some bottom and gravitas. You seem to be a great communicator and have the best interests of those ticket-seeking fans at heart and it's great to see. Welcome.

Just don't woof

Or Rick Burton, or a Hummer rep.

It's about providing a great experience for the fans, both die-hards and the general public. Whether you look at it from a basketball standpoint or a financial standpoint, the goals are the same. If you have a group of people who want to put a quality, winning product out there every night and are willing to go the extra mile to make it happen, the results will be positive on both sides of the coin.

I wouldn't be getting involved in this if I thought we were just trying to capitalise on our legacy, and that it would be easy to grab it. It's not. But again, the people involved are all highly motivated, basketball people, and we are all fighting to get this team and this sport where it needs to be.

I have it from good info that he will be back, doing the announcing. With some cherry on top too. So how credible are you, and your posts?.
