FAN Take is a series that highlights trending events, issues, and decisions in the world of sports and analyzes how they may or may not factor into the Fan Controlled Football League. We would love to hear your feedback, so let us know what you think about each FAN Take!
A big part of any sporting event is the actual fan experience – everything from the food they’re eating to the music they’re listening to at pivotal moments of the game. If you’re a Green Bay Packers fan, you expect to hear “Bang On the Drum All Day” by Todd Rundgren about a million times. If you’re a Boston Red Sox fan, you wouldn’t dare miss the bottom of the 8th sing along to “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond. Without realizing it, music has helped define the memories and expectations fans have for a game.
Last week, Chief Gaming Officer Patrick Dees was told he could select his own entrance music for his speaking engagement at Blockchain Seattle. A no-brainer, Patrick turned this decision over to the fans, and we had suggestions come in ranging from “Getting Jiggy Wit It” by Will Smith to “Sure Shot” by Beastie Boys. After careful review, the suggestions were narrowed down to a final four: “Like A Virgin” by Madonna, the theme from Seinfeld, “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor, and “X Gon’ Give It To Ya” by DMX. With a commanding 36% of the vote across Instagram and the FCFLio and FAN Token Twitter accounts, DMX was the winner.
This has us wondering fans, do you want to vote on the song your team comes out to every week? Or should they have one song you vote on for the entire season? For the team in last place, should the fans get to vote on a song they come out to? Do you want to razz them a bit with something a little more embarrassing? We want to make sure these games give you the best fan experience possible, whether you’re there in person or streaming on Twitch. We want to give you even more voting power, so let us know if this is something you want to do!
Power To The FANS!
