SVG: "A standing ovation for a slice"
 
Wow, gotta say they should really get rid of this promotion. Pathetic!

I always thought it would be way cooler if they gave out something every time the team held an opponent to under 100.

INSIDER 03-27-2012 03:47 PM

who even gets the slice of pizza the next day anyway?

fancylad 03-27-2012 03:54 PM

i usually give my ticket to a homeless person when it applies.

Chiggmo 03-27-2012 04:14 PM

I usually went and got the pizza because it was my way of getting something back for my nice expensive ticket!

No not really, I never once got it. I did what Fancy said a few times, gave it to a homeless person, or gave it to a friend, or some random person on the street lol.

It's happened to me twice and i've used it once, another time i gave it to my god daughter.

rockthetdot 03-27-2012 04:28 PM

That was truly a funny video, great reaction from SVG.

I have to agree, get rid of the fucking pizza promotion, if not, change it.

Never used my free slice stub.

I don't think it's pathetic. If we had a real fucking TEAM, it wouldn't stand out like it does. It says a lot about how much fans in attendance have to be excited about. I know it upsets the SUPER INTELLIGENT fans, but it's a reason to cheer during way too many seasons without one.

Acie 03-27-2012 06:01 PM

Lots of teams do this. Mavs fans get free chalupas, Wizards fans get a free beverage at a local watering hole, Lakers fans get tacos if they hold opponents under 100 points, etc.

'trane 03-27-2012 06:05 PM

funny thing is, i think stan's the kind of guy that would get pretty excited about a slice of pie. maybe he'd jump up and down about it too, if it wasn't so much effort to do so...

Someguy again 03-27-2012 06:11 PM

he puts in the effort to hold together a decent basketball team while dwight howard is doing everything possible to destroy it. i think he can jump up and down for that pie

I agree with this

I hate the promotion, but I always get the slice the next day. To hell if PizzaPizza is going to not have to worry about giving me something free.

He looks like he wouldn't move for less than a whole pizza. Which explains his reaction.

Sometimes the $8 hotdog doesn't hit the spot. I'm hungry after the game. I get my slice on the way home.


Ugh to the thought of SVG's jiggling man-boobs as he celebrates for pizza.

here's Casey weighing in - National Post

I love this guy

Quote:

“I heard what coach Van Gundy said. I agree. If we get 100 points — if we get 100 — [the fans] should get a whole pizza. A slice is not enough, for us to get a 100 points. That’s a lot of labour for us to get 100 points. So we should get a whole pizza. Let’s talk to the pizza company and get a bigger piece than just one slice.

“I understand it. I’m a team player. It’s tough for me. I want fans to be excited about getting a defensive stop, excited about winning a game. But I understand it. Last night, with the way we played, if [the fans] got a lollipop I would have been happy after the game if we got 100 points. It’s tough if your fans get more excited about a slice of pizza then they do about us winning. Again, I understand where we are. I want to be here, and I’m going to be here when we get 100 points consistently and we hold them under 100 points. Now we give them two pizzas.”

It's times like these that make me embarrassed to be a Raps fan.

This is worse than screaming for Lin when he hit the gamewinner on our homecourt.... and that was pretty bad in itself.

fancylad 03-27-2012 11:10 PM

wow. Casey not holding back. I like him.

i was at the game last night and i admit to being part of the cheering for the pizza
but at least for me the cheering was because the team is so pathetic at times and us fans have nothing to cheer for that getting a slice of pizza is the only thing we can cheer for, especially this season where they've failed to register 100 points most of the games

its more of trying to find something fun out of nothing, if you think about it its more of a mockery to the team and players that a slice of pizza is worth our cheers more than their play
