  • Fans... where do we stand?

    Ok the Giants won the Superbowl twice in 4 years but I feel a little empty. Don't you guys think that organizations should show a lil more appreciation to the fans?

    I don't expect them to feed the world so it should be something they can do for people to prove that they're real fans. I think they should have a survey at the beginning of each season, maybe 20 questions relating to your team that fans can answer to show how much they know about their team. Make it a timed survey so you can't cheat.

    Now if you pass the survey and depending on how my questions you answer correctly, you then receive either a free ticket to a game, some special VIP tickets to an event in case your team wins a Championship (a fan picnic or something like that), a free jersey, hat or something.

    I feel that fans put a whole lot of time, energy, money and emotion into their favorite teams to only receive a parade when the teams wins a Championship. The players receive rings, bonuses and all the glory while the people who helps pay their salaries and follow them around the country gets a thank you, I love you and see you next year.

    What do you guys think? I mean I wanna win something too... everything I own that says Giants on it, I payed for it.

      I don't know anything better to give fans than championship competitive teams.

I spend thousands supporting The Giants and I think we as fans should receive something more than a simple thank you. This isn't a debate, just my opinion.

          Hey Burner, how have you been man? Enjoying Walking Dead so far?

          Anyway, I think the prizes for your idea would have to be based on the amount of questions asked and the percentage amount answered correctly.

          For really good prizes, I think the fan would have to at least score around 90% correct on a 100 question quiz. Lesser prizes for shorter tests. That's my opinion at least since I don't think you should get a free season ticket for 10 questions lol.

How are you?

            Yeah I can't wait until tonight's episode. I hope it's not just about torturing and interrogating that kid.

            Yeah well if you don't receive a free ticket, maybe a discount. Teams should just show more appreciation... we spend a lot of money supporting them.

              I live far from the NY/NJ area and don't spend a lot on gear. Just a lifelong fan from far away, so I don't really have a dog in the hunt. But I'd suggest looking at the benefit to local charities and youth organizations that come from the team and the players as something that is given back. I know that you were talking about something to recognize the individual fans who invest year after year with no material reward - but I don't know what they could or should do about that. I do think it would be a nice gesture, though.

                So it's a simple question. What do you want?

                  You're choosing to spend your money on them. You could choose to spend your money on material goods if you wish. But you don't because you love football and this team. And they gave you the best possible reward that you could get. That is how they pay their fans back. That is all most fans want. If you are spending all your money on Giants gear, well then you are getting what you pay for.

                    I don't know what they could possibly give you other then a chapionship. How about a hat or t- shirt at every home game or perhaps a hot dog.

                      Yeah I think putting a good product on the field and winning championships is the best reward.

                      Are you by chance a Met fan? I'm not, I'm a Yankee fan, but I was kind of struck with all the extracurricular fun and games they do during the games, I was even on the jumbotron and won pizza for my row at the park. But the Mets sucked and lost the game in a terrible season.

                        i dont know how much is enough for a team to give fans!




                        they do have contests for games and seats but who knows if that kinda thing is enough!




                        i believe teams who win superbowls prolly just take it for granted fans are satisfied with that!




                        i as a Giants fanam gratified they are 4-time champions.




                        when you wear your Giants gear in most cases you stand out and above any others from a football sense because of those 4 rings.




                        that kinda gratification is enough for me!

                          I wish they would make the stadium twice as big so people who are shut out on the wait lists could get in.

                          I wish they'd make it so average people could afford to go to the games.

                          The organization does do things -- like the parade and stadium rally after winning a championship. There was no parking charged and no admittance fee. The team does have the Legacy Room and doesn't charge an entry fee for that. You can show up at training camp and get pictures with the Lombardi and player autographs.

                          Season ticket holders reap some benefits and if you go to big games you get a towel.

                          What do you want them to do? This is like asking HBO to give you something because you watch their TV shows. The best they can do is entertain you with a good product. Which is something the Giants have done twice in 48 months.

                          It's a business and the Giants are already very fan friendly. What do you want them to do? Sound like you want more promotions and prizes which I wouldn't necessarily disagree with, but this isn't WKRP they don't need to throw t shirts out of a helicopter. A little token of the championship would be cool, some little commemorative bauble. The Yankees always have these kinds of promotions, bobble-head day, bat day, cap day, maybe the Giants should do that.

                              this, well said.

                              I hear you Burner but in the end we're only consumers and if we don't like the product we are free to shop elsewhere.

                              (Not that I think any of us True Blue fans would though)
