zero really can be a hero. get zero down, zero deposit, zero due at signing, and zero first month's payment on select volkswagen models. this black friday at the volkswagen sign then drive event. ♪ here's the deal. sean brace says the sixers franchise needs to be more honest with its fans much his commentary in 15 seconds.
♪ one would think that after the 10 win season the sixers had last year the franchise as whole would bend over backwards and honor of their fans. one would even believe after the last four seasons of losing basketball some might even say, tanking on purpose that the sixers as a whole would want to treat the royal fans the ones that pay the $18 parking beer, $10 beer and 44 price of admission like gold. instead i'm getting a feeling that the decision makers for the sixers really don't care what the fans feel. you see on wednesday morning the sixers dropped a nugget of news via twitter that the best player on the squad joel embiid would not play in the game that evening at home. instead they would rather save him and display him on national tv at minnesota the next night. a game that the sixers ended up losing by 24 points. no matter how you want to spin it trust me there's ton of spinning going on, the sixers
need to concentrate on the fans these days. the product that has been out on the floor for over four seasons now has been a joke. but the majority of us believed that there was a light at the end of the tunnel. only here we are again maybe a 15 win season. folks, they play 82. perception is reality, and that's what the saying is, then i'm sorry sixers decision makers you're showing us that the fans don't matter when it comes to giving us what we pay for. if you're charging us full price, then how about playing the full squad? seems like the right thing to do. or if we can't see eye to eye on that, how about free beer? because that's what it will take to a get of lot of fans back in the arena after this past week. >> lucy. >> you won't get much argument on that one. >> free beer g43 beer. marilyn munroe's famous happy birthday dress sold at los angeles auction. at actress and model worn a jean
