ONN – Warriors 2019 Opening Night At SF Chase Center Shows More Empty Seats Than 2018 Oracle In Oakland
The 2019 Golden State Warriors open their season in the brand new Chase Center in San Francisco. With that, there should be a sitting, noisy, sell-out crowd. Instead, there are too many visible empty seats.
To see the proof of the difference, I went back to a year and 2018 Golden State Warriors NBA Opening Night Game at Oracle Arena in Oakland. Hard to find a large swath of empty seats in the building. And the crowd was excited.
The Warriors made a bad bet on San Francisco from the standpoint of filling the seats with “Oakland-style” fans. They’re, well, San Francisco fans: not totally engaged and itching to go someplace else by halftime.
Let’s see if the situation gets any better, but I doubt it. On the bright side, the Warriors scored a record $2 billion in sponsorships.
Note from Oakland News Now Technical: this video-blog post shows the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
