I,Like Many other people in this state and city,am a FORMER Pacer Fan. I Have Become DISGUSTED with the Lack of Moral Quality on this team,Which is caused by the Quality of the players on thi team and their attitude. I Know that this is Scarilege to Suggest, Is it just Possible That Larry Bird Is Absolutely the Wrong man in the wrong Job? When I Listen To Him I Wonder if He Knows what to do or Cares Surely the Simons are are smarter than THIS!Reggie was Right to leave when he Didand His Comments later were right on! I'm Very sorry it has come to this!

Pacers = bad product = empty seats = finger pointing.

As I said before to continue to do the same thing and expect different results is insanity.

Slow to pick up the defense - that was an argument a day or so ago - there have been over 3 months for the team to learn the defensive schemes and these guys have gone to college.

Something isn't working and someone had better figure it out quickly.

Herb and Mel will be asking the city for mo money!! Come on some of you can go to the games so my taxes don't go up. Oh wait, they already get all the revenue from the fieldhouse..

The pacers will prove tonight they are the worst team in the NBA when they lose to New York. They have to be the worst because Miami beat them. The stands will be empty next year for sure. Get a coach and fire Bird.
Well Now

You have to remember that most of the Pacers are used to prison rules so they are a little out of their element!!!

Hmmm...let's see...the day after another Pacer loss...yep, same old story, comments, execuses, and so forth and so on.

The moral of this situation, "WHO CARES"???

Trade and Fire EVERYBODY and start from scratch.

I knew it was bad when I took my two sons, ages 8 and 6, to a Pacers game and their only comment was, "Why aren't they trying?" Choose the nuclear option and start over. There are a few players to start with - Dunleavy, Granger, Diener, and Owens - who seem to have stayed out of trouble. Cut everyone else, including Larry, no matter how much that pains me to say. Great player, lackluster president. To Jim O'Brien - I think you got dealt a poo-poo hand to play. To the Simon brothers - please clean house. To the NBA - get back to basketball, not fomenting the thug-life, get-paid mentality. Force accountability, bust the union, pay for performance. The league is in a downward spiral...too bad.
