Warriors Contract

The Golden State Warriors are under new management, and the new ownership team is looking to make a good impression with fans as quickly as possible. They recently sent out a contract to potential season-ticket holders, which makes the following promises:

1. The Warriors will make the 2012 playoffs. If they do not, ticket prices will not be increased for the 2012-13 season.

2. The Warriors will send a player to the 2012 All-Star Game. If they do not, all season-ticket holders will receive an autographed piece of All-Star merchandise, and be entered into a drawing for an all-expenses paid trip for two to the All-Star Game in Orlando.

3. The Warriors will win 25 or more home games. If they do not, all season-ticket holders will be invited to an exclusive two-hour autograph session at Oracle Arena with the entire team.

4. The Warriors will honor a risk-free renewal, with a 5% interest guarantee option for the 2011-12 season. That policy will be guaranteed with a 25% deposit payment.

Obviously, what fans want to see most from any ownership group is the ability to put together a winning team, but gestures like this should certainly endear the Warriors’ new owners to one of the best fanbases in the league.

    That’s pretty amazing really. Just the fact that they are reaching out to their fans and offering them anything is a breath of fresh air.

    Thank you Warriors! A franchise finally is doing something to show its fans that it’s committed to winning. Teams need to stop trying to make fans excited that they’re under the cap saving the billionaire owner money and make them feel like they’re actually trying to win. NBA fans owe it to Warriors’ management (owe yeah, Jerry West) to wish Golden State the best this year and support them in whatever ways they can. Hopefully more teams follow suit.

    Probably the best thing the Warriors have done since eliminating the Mavs.

    Think the Wolves can put together something like that?
    25 home wins? I can only wish.
    Good for Golden State though. Stepping up for the fans, I like it.
