    Apparently, for just $99, you can have a cardboard cutout of yourself made and placed in a seat at the Moda for this season. So--who's in?

    Is that 99 per game or 99 total? They really don't make that crystal clear.

    Someone should totally start putting famous people in the seats. Like, Donald Trump, Jack Nicholson, Magic Johnson, Tim Donaghy...

    I think they should start putting other players on the pictures. Someone pony up $99 and put Lebron on one so he is always showing up cheering on the Blazers.

    The great thing about this is, we'll get to see how popular the City Edition jerseys are. Would anyone here pick them over the red or black?

    All those proceeds need to go to charity. For fucks sake.

    I understand that these are not cheap items, and that the team does need to make $, but 10% feels like a bit greedy on the teams part.

    Sounds cool but $99 dollars is a bit steep for this.

    Australian sports did this earlier in the year. Didn't take long for someone to send in a photo of a serial killer.

    10% is pretty much industry average for charities, last I checked.

    So, the organization should bring in less money to help pay all those salaries?

    Nah, these are cheap items. I bought one for OSU football and put my baby nephew on it - $40.

    Season ticket holders get $30 off.

    Kills me people are bitching about paying for this. Think it is unfair? Simply do not buy it!

    well, I know how you think now

    I'd be more inclined toward Jessica Alba, Sophie Turner, Evangeline Lilly, Morena Baccarin....but I'm a dirty old man
