UPDATE: Via Uncle Ted on Ted's Take today 9/27/11:
Netting UpdateSo I guess the poll is no longer necessary. As of this edit the tally was 232 votes with 183 against the white netting (79%) versus 49 votes for (21%). Who knows what impact the poll had, if any, but thanks to everyone who reposted/retweeted the poll and participated!
We took a closer look at the Verizon Center protective netting today, and it clearly isn’t what we had anticipated. It hinders the fan experience and it is not an asset to our local rights holder, Comcast SportsNet. Therefore, starting with Friday’s preseason game, we will reinstall the black netting that had been used last season. We were attempting to improve the arena and television viewing experience, but we fell short of that mark.
