No wonder the Nets are giving away tickets

The New Jersey Nets, in a gesture that represents both corporate citizenship and an effort to fill some seats in the Izod Center, are giving away tickets to the jobless.

Eric McClure of NoLandGrab pointed out that, by giving away seats that are sitting empty, the Nets are not exactly "taking a hit," as a marketing expert claimed.

Indeed, based on images from last night's game against the Indiana Pacers, the seat-filling effort can't begin soon enough. See here, here, and here.

Announced attendance was 13,551, or 68% of 19,968. Then again, a reporter in the audience on Saturday observed that the arena was half-empty when the claim was 89% full.
