Suns' "Satisfaction Guaranteed" Game Draws Season-High Crowd, Positive Atmosphere
Published December 7, 2012
FEELING GOOD ABOUT THE PRODUCT: CBS Sports Network’s Allie LaForce was in favor of the guarantee because it means the Suns are “confident that if they can get you in the stands, that you’ll enjoy your time” (“Lead Off,” CBS Sports Network, 12/6). But TNT’s Kenny Smith said, “I would never have guaranteed anything.” TNT’s Ernie Johnson said, “Give them credit for a good idea.” But Smith replied, “It’s not. It’s impossible to guarantee somebody a good time” (“Inside the NBA,” TNT, 12/6). The Miami Herald’s Israel Gutierrez prior to the game said, “I see thousands of requests for money-back guarantees because how are you going to prove that I had fun at the game? … That’s free basketball.” But Dallas Morning News columnist Tim Cowlishaw said, “Fans will be nice. They’re not going to ask for their money back” (“Around The Horn,” ESPN, 12/6).
