THAT 'OL NEW JERSEY INDUSTRIAL SPIRIT
Published July 18, 1995
The Nets are offering season-ticket holders full "satisfaction guaranteed" refunds through October 20, as well as refunds with interest "if any games are lost to labor strife" next season, according to John Helyar in today's WALL STREET JOURNAL. Nets President John Spoelstra: "We had players that quit on us last year; we've got the possibility of losing games to the lockout; we felt we had to do something different." Helyar writes, "The Nets, like all NBA teams, have been unable to trade old players or sign new ones because of the league-wide lockout. ... Because of this, their renewal pitch is limited to boasting of a new, improved attitude in pretty much the same old team" (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 7/18). The Nets' pledge leads Michael Hiestand's Sports Biz column (USA TODAY, 7/18).
