Hahaha, my sentiments exactly.

GTFO, you severed your ties with Jersey a few years ago.

On the Prudential Center facebook page they announced that the first 10,000 fans get a patch.

One person responded, "what are you going to do with the other 3,000".

Following them into Brooklyn as a fan but to me it's always Jersey team. Also, because why would I want to be a Knicks fan anyway, **** 'em.

But NBA sucks lol

edit: I see I'm the only fan.

Isn't this hurting JVB's pocket though?

I'm honestly not thrilled to see a potential revenue source for the arena leaving, but this opens up more prime dates for the Devils and concerts/shows to be announced.

The Nets choose to sever ties to this community quite some time ago, and I'm going to be interested in seeing if there is any improvement in Brooklyn. Can they really make it financially feasible to play there?

GOODBYE AND GOOD RIDDANCE!

NJ is nothing but a HOCKEY TOWN now.

(yeah I know there are football and baseball fans here but I'm talking about SPORTS TEAMS[or should I say Team in singular form?] in New Jersey)

Tickets prices are ridiculous. The only affordable tickets are in the upper deck for $25-27 a ticket. Lower bowl starts $100+. This isn't designed for the people in Brooklyn to afford.

I am sure the Knicks fans in the biggest basketball part of NYC will instantly become Nets fans.

The amount of crashing and burning they are going to do in Brooklyn is going to be incredibly fun to watch.

Yup. They're going to get what's coming to them from leaving this state on such weird terms.
