Fox6 ran a story on the Save Our Bucks Billboard release party.
We’ll cover it in more detail in the future, but the billboard we’ve been talking about for a few weeks that was paid for using generous donations from like minded Bucks fans is now UP! It’s at I-43 and McKinley in Milwaukee, don’t worry if you’re anywhere nearby you’ll definitely see it! Don’t forget our launch party for the billboard with Bucks fan and pro wrestler Austin Aries at 7pm on Monday 23rd December at The Loaded Slate, all proceeds going to the MACC Fund.
Deadspin have offered their unique take on the website and billboard, in part :
“…so some concerned fans have paid for a billboard that would seem to emphasize lottery balls over basketballs.
The folks at SaveOurBucks.com wouldn’t call it “tanking.” They’ve got a multi-part plan for the Bucks to return to competitiveness and stay in Milwaukee, and it involves front office moves and fan support. But the key is to eschew the Bucks’ usual strategy of band-aid acquisitions in favor of trading away veterans, letting young players get minutes, and lose their way into a top pick in next year’s stacked draft.”
Sporting News have covered saveourbucks.com and the launch of the billboard on their site, saying in part :
“A group of concerned Bucks fans rallied together to create “SaveOurBucks.com” with the goal of keeping the team in Milwaukee. They recently purchased a billboard sign outside of the city with a most interesting slogan.”
To celebrate the “Winning Takes Balls” Billboard going up on I-43 & McKinley, meet other Bucks fans and raise money for the MACC Fund. $5 cover at the door ALL goes to the MACC Fund. The bar is also donating a portion of bar sales. There will be drink specials and the kitchen is open if you want to order food.
