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.
