I stand corrected Mr Hume in that I did not read all the posts. I was not aware you were addressing another - West Coast Maven.
I do agree that this system was not designed to air quasi-libelous beefs with those in the Hoosier sports world. I was just trying to state a citizen's legal position.
At least the posts I've seen in Sports show some courtesy unlike say those dealing with an article on say immigration where the comments verge on the despicable.
Race, immigration, and Daylight Savings time brings out the worst in the people on this board. Funny thing is that the Star's current "editor" seems overly enamored in these Forums as a driving tool of his paper's print content.

This is what happens when you have a team of punks that have no respect for the law, other people, or themselves. Lose the thugs and start rebulding with quality human beings. Character matters, especially here in Indiana.

We All Know, Carlisle Was Always Capable of Being Larry's Fall Guy. Walsh Needs to Make One Final Bold Move before Retiring...Dump Larry Legend. I Agree, Most of Bird's On-Court Contemporaries (McHale, Ainge, Magic, Isaih Thomas, Jordan) Have Proven Equally Ineffective in Their Front Office Jobs. There Is So Little Talent Left on This Team Now, It's Disgusting. Rebuilding Is the Only Answer Here. Harrington Was a Necessary Component to Move Stephen Jackson...I Can Only Assume Jermaine O'Neal Would Help Move the Nearly Worthless Tinsley in the Same Manner. I'm Sure the Simon's Have Noticed the Decline in Attendance, and They Can Expect More Deterioration Next Season. You Won't Find Me in the Stands Any Time Soon. Last Season I Made One a Suite on St. Patrick's Day, as a Guest. I Normally Made 20 or So Games a Year. I'm Sure I'm Not Alone When I Say for the First Time in 40 Years, I'm Ashamed to Be a Pacer Fan!
How The Heck Do You Type Like That?
Amazing Talent!

Okay - this is probably a dead thread...but I'm predicting Del Harris, current Mavs ass't, Plainfield IN native and former Coach of the Year as next Pacer Head Coach.

That's assistant..... Will that get bleeped. What about pass? or mass?

I think maybe I left a space while trying to abbreviate Ass't

Why O WHY is Larry Bird still employed with the Pacers? Because of his great jump shot? WHAT has this man done to deserve a further stay with this team? ALL of their current problems are Bird's fault! His trades, draft picks, and decisions have been 100% awful! The Legend is dead, Larry has been exposed as a not-too-smart player-only.

False. The fans wanted Jax gone. That was the goal and it was met. No more him bitching at refs instead of getting back to play D after a missed shot. He was an embarassment to Indiana basketball. Harrington had to be included at GS insistence. Sarunas was considered a bust and was sent packing to hide it before it became obvious to everyone.
We need to stay with the goal of character, effort, attitude, team work, and basketball fundamentals. At least they will be fun to watch. Currently we are losing with knuckleheads. Lets lose with people who reflect Indiana basketball. Murphy and Dunleavy are not embarassing us off the court. So in that same topic, JO and Turnover Tinsley must go. JO would have never signed here if he knew Zeke was leaving. So send him to NYC. Never mind helping an Eastern opponent. Focus on the goal.
Lets have a team we are proud to support and fun to watch. Players who can't put in the time to get in shape and play/practice the whole season don't cut it. If any of us had a work record like that, we would get our butt kicked out the door. Unless you work in a union shop. Sorry.
Go Pacers!!!
Burn incense and hope that draft pick is in the top 3.
