Have to put most of the blame on the organization for the lack of fan support this year. Not only losing Ben. Losing someone like that demands an adjustment period. All the changes at the Palace just seem a bit too much commercial for me. All the silly new restaurants and bars. All most fans want is a place to buy beer and dogs. Took away a lot of the parking for pre-payed spots and Cingular club members. You just feel like a 2nd class fan these days unless you are connected ( i.e. - willing to give them a ton of cash ). They seem to balance between maximizing the amount that you are willing to put up with and still go. Less service and higher prices is the trend from year to year. Every year you get less and pay for more. Did they have to commercialize Deetroit Basketball? I thought it was fine being one of those things that you just knew about. Anyway, the true sellouts will comeback if the team wins. People that do not follow the team are actually surprised when I tell them the Pistons have a winning record. New Energy guy? What about Amir Johnson? May not be Ben Wallace but he would provide some energy and excitement.
