Dayone is greatly misunderstood.
The news about Dayone has been hot lately. Theories of relocation, which started with Pohang, eventually led to Busan as the likely location. The city of Busan did not deny it.
Currently, the positions of Dayone and Busan City are different. Day One wants to sign an association agreement with Busan 메이저사이트 City and decide on the location first before signing a sponsorship agreement. However, the city of Busan has stated that it will sign an association agreement after the sponsorship agreement is decided.
If the two sides can find a mutual agreement in the end, it is quite possible for Day One to settle in Busan. There are already rumors in the basketball world that Day One will sign a naming rights deal with a company based in the Busan and Gyeongnam regions. Facts are important, but it’s true that Day One itself is looking for a company.
Currently, the team is in a serious situation. They’ve been overdue for a long time. And it’s not just the salaries. There is a lot to be paid to all the related companies that played the 2022-23 season with them during the Carrot era. It’s an unfinished business.
The math works out that if they can get a sponsor deal and finalize a stadium settlement, they’ll have all their financial bases covered, and the worst case scenario of a nine-team system will be averted.
But there’s one thing we’ve forgotten. There’s one thing that everyone from Orion to Day One has missed: a message of apology and remorse to Goyang fans.
Orion settled in Goyang after the Daegu ‘Yabandoju’ incident, but they sold the club to Dae One and left without apologizing to the fans. And even DaeWon quickly forgot about the Goyang fans who supported them until the end and became the center of the Pohang-Busan ties transfer theory. It even turned out to be true.
Dei-won was not a manly man. It was the Goyang fans who supported them throughout the playoffs with everything from coffee to chicken to lunch boxes when they were in financial trouble in the 2022-23 season. Their gratitude was short-lived. The team is moving on without apology.
Professional sports are nothing without their fans. It was the Goyang fans who supported and protected Day One until the end, when the club’s finances were so bad that it could not function as a professional club at all. But now that he has a new family, they don’t even look at him.
Can Goyang fans understand this, and can Busan basketball fans, who lost their way when KT left for Suwon, really welcome Day One after learning about his past? It’s not easy to understand.
