I've been a Blue & Gold fan all my life and I always will be until the day i die. I can't come on this board and bash these guys over and over. It shows no real support...just a band wagon mentality when they're doing good and jumping off when their doing bad.
Support your team...good or bad. One day this team will turn it around and compete for a title. They're going to stink it up for a few seasons, but I'll keep watching and keep hoping they'll finally get the right guys like they had in the 90's.
While I am not a native hoosier, I watched a ton of IU and ND during The Generals phone smashing routine on the scores table in Cincy and Diggers Irish knocking off UCLA and followed them while moving to the rest stop between Cincy and Chicago as Bob Trumpy once said.

I loved the Pacers, having grown up watching The Big O in college and with the Royals. What's the two worse trades in sports history?

But the Pacers were Reggie and now days each teams so called leader is nothing but a b s quote machine with no substance, How's the team Jermaine?

Harrison was a lazy BUFF and yet some front office genius drafted him with a known work ethic problem.

So until any of these overpaid excuses for basketball players can actually go out on the court and do their job without getting injured, they deserve the support their going to get this year. Well Reg, our promotion to have the fans dress as empty seats seems to be a huge success.

The workmens comp thing is right on, also, they stop paying social security taxes after their first or second game check.

And the latest Pacers commercial makes me want to toss my Skyline 3-ways.

Good, he is a terrible excuse for a basketball player. Notre Shame graduate, too.
I believe the name of the school is Notre Dame, but you think you're a funny guy. Must be a boiler fan.

I went to the T-wolves game tonight with the free tickets courtesy of the Pacers (thanks!) and let me tell you this was a fun game to watch. We got stomped in the first half and couldn't make a shot, but we came back to take it to two overtimes before a bum call unfortunately affected the outcome.

Harrison DID get hurt already, HOWEVER, up until that time, it was great to see him because he was keeping his temper under check even when he didn't agree with calls against him. He ended up with five fouls I think but it was in part because he played more minutes than usual. It wasn't like he was just slamming into people getting fouls.

But the reason I wanted to post was to let you all know that Harrison got hurt going HARD after a loose ball that he was able to save inbounds to a teammate. He leaped out of bounds into the Pacers bench and for some strange reason instead of catching him, they all got out of the way. He hit the seats awkwardly in the air and did not get up. He limped off and sat down for the final couple minutes.

The Pacers were fun to watch in the second half as they closed a 20 point deficit and played with spirit. they went to the floor after loose balls, got hurt going out of bounds after loose balls - whatever it took, they wanted to succeed. Very refreshing for a change.

"Troy has had trouble with his achilles before. Last year he had trouble. That's one reason GS was happy to give him to us.

Daniels has a bad knee. That's why Dallas got rid of him.

Same old story. How long will the Pacers keep taking on players that no other team wants."

Well, is that how you feel about Granger? He fell in the draft because he had an injured knee and everyone was afraid of him. The Pacers have had some winning moves because they've gambled on players like Danny .

It's disappoing- all the negativism on this board.

Ike should be playing anyways, he has the biggest up-side of anyone on the team, and yet gets very little playing time.
