This week Melbourne Tigers fans have once more rallied together in support of their proud Basketball team.
Two weeks ago, the petition calling on United to give up the Tigers name, colours and history was on 15 signatures, now it is on 121 and that number is advancing up a couple of signatures every day, readers can still sign or see the total on the link provided in this paragraph.
The exciting part of this week has been that it is no longer a case of one or two people banging the drums but three or four and even more and that shows that the message is getting through to Tigers fans that we are not dead in the water, we will not be swept under United’s carpet because we will keep aiming and working to have a team that can freely choose it’s own destiny.
The Pick and Roll have today been tweeted asking them to do a story and it’s not certain if they’ll answer, it’s really hoped that they will because they are an excellent place for Basketball fans to get their news from and we truly believe our story is worthy of being told.
Other places will be contacted and hopefully they will answer and pass the word about us on therefore giving people the potential to see and sign the petition and while being more widely known is increasing the chances of running into trolls etc, it is part of life when you want something that people don’t want you to have.
Chris Pimm has offered to upload for Tigers fans a selection of Tigers footage if the petition reaches 200 by tomorrow, with the total 79 away the petition would need it’s most successful day to make it but nothing beats the lure of watching great Tigers highlights whilst dreaming of future highlights to come.
Enjoy your weekend Tigers fans.
