Joe the endorser...

Post by ABARedWhiteBlue » Wed Sep 12, 2007 12:46 am

The product is great! The people are better. The Rhino Sports staff anticipated our every need well in advance. Operating a professional sports franchise creates unique demands. Rhino Sports performed quickly and efficiently--first rate people and a quality product that players and coaches respect."

The endorsement is for a flooring system, apparently used by the Las Vegas Rattlers. There are pictures of the home gym during a game against the Diablos, to show off the floor:

Does anybody have any idea what venue that is in Vegas? It's actually not a half-bad setup. It's too bad they put the team in a city where nobody cares about minor league sports.

That is actually very good.

The banner says "Home of the ABA Las Vegas Rattlers". The logo of a guy dunking on a red and blue background doesn't seem familiar either.

The TV screen in the back says Diablos 2 Rattlers 12. This actually looks like a professional set up. Joes sister and her husband own a small casino in Las Vegas, maybe she can get into the Tarkanian center again.

If more ABA teams ran operations like those pictured above this league would be in fine form.

Agreed, looks like they actually tried hard and put effort into it, but it all comes down to fans at the end

That looks to be the same floor the Indiana Legends use for their games at the Pepsi Coliseum at the start of their second season. It is made up of interlocking plastic pieces.

It appears as though the last photo is from a Legends game.

Good eyes. I didn't even notice that the court lines are a different color in the last pic. There's also hockey boards in the background that weren't in the Vegas pics. And it would appear one of the players in white has a Legends logo on them, but i can't figure out why it would be in the back. Did the Legends really play in jerseys without numbers on the back?
