    PLEASE...and maybe I just speak for myself...PLEASE could you guys post BETTER quality videos from these games?


    The Natalie Gilbert national anthem

    AND

    the "miracle minute" against Dallas?

    AND

    highlights from game 6 of the Dallas/Portland series?

    I really wish that there could be a way to have access to the video files that the Blazers have, of certain games or highlights, instead of finding crappy versions on youtube.

    Like, the three that I mentioned above? It's like watching Sabonis highlights from the Soviet Union, and someone filmed the games with saran wrap over the lens.


    Thanks!

    As long as we're taking requests...

    I'd really, really like to see the video of Jerome Kersey starting at the baseline and going HORIZONTAL for a dunk against Utah in the playoffs. He ended up on one of Mark Eaton's shoulders. Absolutely great dunk. Haven't seen anything like it since.

    (Eaton was coming and he wanted to get to the basket ASAP and the best way to do it was to jump head first. Kind of a basketball version of a head first slide.)

    My request is another meet and greet for the current members of the blazers official forum. That way we can put a face to some of the posters here. The cho meet and greet was a ton of fun.

    Make classic radio play-by-play games from Schonz and Wheels available to buy on iTunes. Nostalgia is big, and I'd pay $3 a game to get the whole thing to listen to again.

    My biggest request would be fan interaction. Reward the long standing members on the blazer broadcast. Like pick a season ticket holder +10 years and have some sort of thank you shout out.

    The Blazers have really dropped the ball with long term season ticket holders. Lanny has been a ticket holder since the very first year, they've spelled his name wrong on the original season ticket holder plaque at the Moda Center and they've changed his ticket rep so many times over the last couple of years he has no idea who is his anymore. And he has 7 seats in the 100 level.

    When he went into the hospital this summer for surgery I called the Blazers ticket reps and asked if they could send him a card or something. Last time a few years ago we got him a signed pennant from the team, this year they didn't send him anything. Really disappointing to do to such a huge fan and long time ticket holder.

    I agree. I think is Portland really wants to connect with the community, they really need to show some love to the ones that supported them from the beginning. I am an ultimate homer, but I don't hold a candle to fans like MGB and Lanny. Dude I visited MGB in the hospital and his place was lit up with nothing but Blazer gear! I was impressed!

    Can I please watch Trail Blazers games on Dish Network? I'd settle for pay-per-view.

    K-Thnx.

    Lionel Hollins' game clinching shot, Game 3 of the First Round of the 1977 Playoffs
    Maurice Lucas vs. Darryl Dawkins fight: Game 2 of the 1977 Finals
    Load all of the team-produced "yearbook" videos from the 1990, 1991, 1992 seasons
    Highlights from Clyde Drexler's 1992 All-Star Game performance

    I'll try to think of more.

    Highlights of the Valentines Day 1990 double-OT game against the Lakers? That was the very very first Blazers game I ever watched, the first time I even knew Portland had a basketball team.

    I think the Blazers (and all sports teams in general, so I'm not dogging only on the Blazers) forget sometimes how simple it is to get fans to fall back in love or get excited about the team or the history.

    Fez has a great idea...

    We need to start with an AMA with employees - reddit style.

    Chad Buchanan is a must.

    We can make that happen. I'll see what I can come up with and post when someone is available to do an AMA.

    Since we are making requests here, it'd be nice if the Blazers made a design available in their store that featured this site. It would help promote the site as well as the Blazers' community brand. Perhaps one of Mike's deals?

    Anyway, here's a design we're still mulling over here:

    Obviously, you've got your own design team and may have a better design in mind. When I mocked up this design, I went with a used-and-abused look to convey that the site has been around a long time (it has) and has a lasting bond with the Blazers (it does).

    I've always wanted to see the Play off game against the Suns from 5/11/92 again. Double OT win for the Blazers - 151 to 153. One of the most exciting Blazer games I've ever watched.
