The Pacers stayed out too late Thursday night and didn't get enough rest for Friday's game. Another strip club adventure?

This isn't a team one can like. Why are Tinsley and Jackson in Pacer uniforms? Until we get rid of them and Carlisle, we're going to be very average.

Granger, O'Neal, Harrington.
Worst rebounding front line in Pacer history.

Sounds familiar doesn't it? These guys are a joke and do not deserve a nickel from my pocket. Let's here it from thr diehard Pacer fans telling us to support these jackasses no matter what. Go ahead spend YOUR money and waste YOUR time with these little boys. Stephen.....can't fight so you have to use a gun? Typical ghetto thug.

I don't know what you fans are expecting. Eight new faces to this team. Granted it is going to take some time. It is not like the Pacers put up 66 points like the NBA Champs(Miami Heat) did the first night. On a bad night, a bad rebounding night, the Pacers still put up over 90 points. I say before you write off this season lets give them some time to get thing together. I didn't say keep spending your money, or wearing their (Pacers) gear. I said let not write them off yet. By January it should give this city a clear indication of how good or bad they really are. In the mean while support the other team(Da COLTS). What P. Manning is doing is flat out legendary.

Here we go again!! Two games into the season and Carlisle is talking lineup changes. That was the excuse last year. How many times have we heard and read that sorry excuse? It worked last for him so why change? Another game----another lineup change. How about a coaching change!!

Another disgusting game. When will the Pacer front office step in and make a coaching change? I'm so sick of the same sorry excuse----lineup changes, lineup changes, lineup changes. Find a starting unit and let them play, win or lose, but then he wouldn't have his standard excuse. If the men and women in the work force performed like the Pacers and their coach, we wouldn't have a job tomorrow. We don't have guaranteed contracts. Do you think that might be the problem?

Tinsley is AWFUL. That guy is NEVER going to be able to shoot a basketball with any accuracy. And Sarunas is a better passer than Tinsley.

Jackson only hits shots when he's totally wide open.

Get these guys off of our team.

"Eight new faces to this team. Granted it is going to take some time."

New faces don't have CRAP to do with Tinsley's terrible shooting, and his poor all around play. That guy stinks.

It's a about time to blow that Pacer team up. It's not Larry or Donnie's fault, but that team is a dog.

pretty sad when your most effective player is a 38 year old journeyman.

Of course it is the same old story.
"New Pacers look a lot like last year's model" In my opinion, it will continue to be the same old story if we continue to sit two of our best new players. Josh Powell and Maceo Baston are 2 players that could help the Pacers tremendously based on what I saw from them in the Pre-season. They both should be getting major minutes, but aren't. Why is that? Believe me, Tyson Chandler would not have had half the rebounds he did had Josh "Manchild" Powell been in the game.

It's time to make some changes Carlisle! Put the players on the court that actually look like they want to be their, i.e., the ones that hustle, play defense and rebound. I think the current starting lineup needs some fine tuning because they look like the same team from the last few years that I got tired of watching. I am <> this close to calling it quits as a Pacers fan.

Maybe the problem is the Coach and Management.

Its too bad a nearly 40 year old shows more heart in his little finger than the rest of the pacer team. Hes the highlight and spark so far every time he comes in and gives 110%. Oneal is solid , Granger playing well, Baby Al is supposed to be a seasoned veteran and hes showing no signs of it. When you play wild and out of control you are going to shoot 4-19. He should be one of the leaders of this team instead of an also ran. Out of two games this team is allowing way too many points , there is no team defense , making no stops down the stretch, when its crucial. Rick is frustrated with his teams play and you cant blame him for shaking the lineup . He doesnt want to play Armstrong that many minutes but maybe he needs to play early and late. They need to get to a fast start and he seems to be the sparkplug. Guys take a lesson from the veteran and start playing hard, give all you have, very few pacers are.

Give it up, these are not our fathers Pacers. They are a sub 500 team with a bunch of thugs, no one has forgotten the club and gun, or pot, or brawl.

Rick Carlisle is about as effective as Bob Hill or Dick Versace. He lacks a true ability to inspre the players. They say they like him. Well, the best coaches I've ever had were those who I didn't like, but had a handle on direction and were successful.

This clownin around acting like basketball players is for the dogs.
