i really not long ago when someone argued with me saying that team would leave. how stupid does he sound now, and the reason i say how stupid is because he really believe the team would be gone in 3 to 4 years tops, even with the lease.

Heidi is alive and well. This post may be a higher grade of manure; but it reeks of skunk oil.

Tickets sales have been improving anyhow due to winning. For your average John Doe individual game ticket buyer, winning is the best promotion. Where this is really going to help is in the corporate support. Local companies will be much more likely for corporate packages since the Griz roots now go through some of Memphis finer companies and corporate citizens. Maybe the Neely's will shoot a new commercial and dump the one they've run during the telecasts for the past many seasons. "What about Nashville?'

I hope the NBA approves Pera. I take this Pera/local owner partnership as a positive. I just bought season tickets for the first time. I never attended more than 5 to ten games in the past.
