FanPost

Dear Mike Brown - Really want to sell out the game?

I made a reference to this in Joeski's fanpost, but I wanted to give it its own.

Mikey - If the 72 hour deadline to sell out the game is coming up and there are still unsold tickets, how about you buy the remaining tickets and donate them to a charity to distribute. I'll even help you out:

They partner with sports teams, arenas, promoters, etc to donate tickets to events (such as NFL FOOTBALL GAMES) to veterans. With the recent massive pullout from Iraq, a HUGE number of vets are returning home this holiday season. I flew into Cincinnati last Friday and the place was swarming with young men and women in fatigues coming home. I can't imagine a nicer thing to do, let alone a better PR move on the part of a PR-starved organization, than to spend a PALTRY amount of money to give a great gift to a lot of very deserving vets and their families. Plus, it fills your stadium and saves you the embarrassment of not being able to sell a major game (see national headlines: Bengals beg fans to come out for playoff clinching game).

Seems like a no-brainer to me. Even Chad used to do things like this out of his own pocket constantly. Are you tired of being demonized in this city? A generous move like this, coupled with a suddenly exciting young playoff contending football team might just win you back a fanbase.
