This would be cool when we play Houston at ATT Center

Out-of-towners, if not accepted, are generally tolerated in Washington. But at D.C.'s Verizon Center, visitors are singled out and humiliated on the arena's jumbotron. In a bit called the "Bandwagon Cam," fans decked out in Miami Heat gear at Wednesday night's game were embarrassed by the transient-friendly city's scoreboard operator, who wrote sarcastic captions to accompany video of each red-and-black clad fan.

That's funny, but the Spurs organization would never do something like that.

Doesn't work as well with Houston. There's a ton of transplants from there down here, can't call them bandwagon fans....Lakers games on the other hand....

I’ll pass on this idea. As funny as it may appear, the captions that accompany the video or the video itself could touch a nerve with fans sitting close by and could start something no one wants. I may be an alarmist but if I were to see a Spurs game, say in Denver or Chicago, dressed in my Spurs get-up, I wouldn’t want it done to me. I recently went to a home game at the AT&T Center and the folks sitting next to me were Thunder fans from out of town and the slightly inebriated fan sitting two seats to my left laid into them throughout the game. I don’t know if what I said to the guy at halftime had any affect but for some reason he didn’t return for the 2nd half. All I’m saying is what goes around comes around. I can’t speak for the Wizard organization but I would hope the Spurs FO and public affairs office has a little more class than to follow through on something like this.

It only applies to HEAT fans, not any other teams fans.
