NO CHAMPIONSHIP BANNERS FOR ROCKETS FRONT-OFFICE
Published November 3, 1994
The marketing department of the NBA Champion Rockets has only sold a season ticket base of 8,600 and the team faces a crowd of only 9,200 for its second home game. Fran Blinebury writes, "There are so many franchises in the NBA and in other sports that are doing a booming business. It must be left open for consideration that Rockets management simply didn't do the job over the summer that should have been spent cashing in on the championship. ... They blew it. There is an inclination to blame the whopping price hikes in tickets. Yet the highest-priced tickets are the ones that have all been sold to season-ticket holders, a base that numbers roughly 8,600 paid. It is the consumers of the cheaper seats who must be brought on board. The Rockets don't have a business operation of which the team can be proud" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 11/2).
