Some New Jersey Nets fans have done so and faced the wrath of Yormark.
Not Michael Yormark. His twin brother Brett.
At last night's Nets-Heat game in the Meadowlands, Brett Yormark (CEO of the Brooklyn Nets) got into it with some fans -- one of whom was wearing a paper bag over his head.
In case you don't follow the NBA, the Nets aren't good. They are a lot worse than the Panthers. Possibly record-breaking bad.
Apparently these guys sit by the bench and by B.Yormark and he didn't like what he saw. If these guys were season ticket holders, I'm sure they've seen a lot of basketball they didn't like seeing. Again, the Nets are brutal.
According to the Newark Star-Ledger, B.Yormark issued a statement on what happened on Monday night. Hey, I like that the guy's sticking up for his team -- and the paper bag thing has been done to death.
But there is nothing wrong with a paying customer wearing a paper bag (I would avoid the plastic ones) to a game if they wanted to demonstrate their unhappiness with the team.
Unless they got the tickets for free at Quarterdeck. Then you have to wear the Quarterdeck to-go bag. It's only right.
“Our fans have been great and they’ve stuck with us through a tough
season,'' B.Yormark says in the statement.
"I did not agree with the way this person expressed his opinion of our team last night and I let him know. It’s been a frustrating season for all of us, but I will continue to stand up for our players, our fans, and our organization. We have an exciting future ahead and we appreciate all of our fans’ support.”
