Do us a favor Larry and get out of town. This mess called the Pacers sits squarely on your shoulders. You bring in these thugs and then act suprised when they behave the way they always have

I predict we'll be able to quote Denny Green at the end of the season and say:
"The Pacers are who we thought they were."
I hope I'm wrong...

I love you Larry. The team will better if for no other reason than they will be far better offensively.

For the sake of the team and it's fans and everyone who ever like basketball for gawd sakes let them be better than those unwatchable Carlisle strangulations.

I hope you, O'brien and the players shut everyone's pie hole. Barbeque

I personally am glad that the "bandwagon" fans will not be at the games. I have been going to Pacer games since 1973. I saw the bandwagon fill up in 2000. Some thing with the Colts. The REAL fans were there during the 3-13 seasons. Now I see people with #1 Colt fan vanity plate that looks only a couple yrs old. Big Surprise!
Who needs a bandwagon? As long as we true fans are still there, that is all that matters.

Here is the scoop folks. I heard from a very reliable source today that Larry has been hanging out with Mike Vick smoking the Hippie lettuce, so go figure! Please disregard his comments.
On or in which court

Oh really on or in which court. Willism didnt even show up for court. Yiou would think even though its a court date, the coach should suspend him a game for that, due to his supposed celebrity showing leadership you need to be on time for practice you need to show up for practice you need to be loyal to your team and to others, I dont see the pacers to ahve a better season it certainly not starting to great when a player misses court date. That does not show leadership. Take a seat back and look before you speak Birdy.

I hope the pacers can be better than last year. They have good weapons and talented players, plus a good fan base at Conseco.

I've never really liked the Pacers all that much. The only good player that they really have is Jermaine O'Neal. All of the rest are just quiality players. Tinsley is just your average everyday PG. It really does help if you have alo of medeocrity because their will be alot of teamwork. Jermaine is defentally going to have to haul the load for the PAcers this year.

Who need those bandwaggon fans? The Pacers do. If only you 2 or 3,000 "real" fans show up,see just how long it is before they get tired of loosing money and the franchise moves. I GUESS ALL YOU "REAL" FANS REALY SHOWED USDIDN'T YOU? I've been a Pacer fan since 1967 so I've been there for the good times and the bad including those 20 win seasons in the 80's but I've had enough of this crap and I won't be there . If in your eyes that makes me less than a "real" fan then so be it.

The funny part of this is when they win thier first game, it'll be nothing but pacers rule- and you all will take offense if someone mentions thug players. Better get 2 noses, the pacers have different a@@es than the colts!!!!

You're right. I'm gonna jump right back on the bandwaggon when this train wreck wins it's first game. At that point we will all be excited about a team with a 1-19 record.
