It's not about the on court performance, bucket head. It's all about off court. A few of you (who I'm pretty sure are part of the Pacers PR department) seem to think we're asking too much for the players to stay out of jail even if they are
representing our state as INDIANA Pacers. I'll stop making those kind of demands when Mel and Herb change the name of the team to the Simon Pacers.
Again I ask, if it's so much about staying out of jail, then why has everyone turned a blind eye to the Colts' player troubles the last few years?

nice name calling...i am a casual fan...not a die hard, but if we continue to live in the past...what a farce that becomes. just saying move on, there are some new players, a new coach..let's give them a chance and not be so negative. you seem to be a very closed minded person.

Cooper, maybe you should stop talking now. Because maybe you're not very smart.

You are a bucket head, though.

why not be positive??? i guess the easiest thing to do is post negative comments...
No, the hardest thing to do in regards to the Pacers is to post positive comments. Well...urmmmm...nice skipping court? GET'EM TIGER! GOOOOOOOO TEAM!

As soon as they EARN something positive, I'm sure they'll receive it (since their HUGE paychecks apparently aren't enough to pacify).

Wonder what program you and Pedro are using, nice little spam jobs though, somewhat interesting at least.

Mr. Travis Diener's memoirs require a two-part response: first, a clarification of the prognosis implied by my previous letter; and second, a commentary on Travis's own prognoses. As this letter will make clear, I find that some of Travis's choices of words in his bons mots would not have been mine. For example, I would have substituted "silly" for "microcinematographic " and "unregenerate" for "anthropomorphotheist. " This is not to say that people should soothe each other's pain, not exploit it. It is merely to point out that Travis's hypnopompic insights are based on two fundamental errors. They assume that diseases can be defeated not through standard medical research but through the creation of a new language, one that does not stigmatize certain groups and behaviors. And they promote the mistaken idea that he answers to no one.
To tell you the truth, honest people will admit that I must confess that Travis is a standard-bearer for the unbearable. Concerned people are not afraid to take off the kid gloves and vent some real anger at Travis. And sensible people know that as a dynamic, historical current, irrationalism has taken many different forms and has evolved dramatically in a variety of ways. If that fact hurts, get over it; it's called reality. And for another dose of reality, consider that we must remove our chains and move towards the light.(In case you didn't understand that analogy, the chains symbolize Travis's intransigent intimations, and the light represents the goal of getting all of us to dole out acerbic criticism of Travis and his phalanx of uninformed, foul co-conspirators.) I can repeat with undiminished conviction something I said eons ago: Travis truly believes that all any child needs is a big dose of television every day. It is just such coprophagous megalomania, disruptive, egocentric egoism, and intellectual aberrancy that stirs Travis to produce a large number of absolutely dodgy extravagancies, most pathological indecencies, and, above all, the most abominable blasphemies against everything that I hold most sacred and most dear. He is an inspiration to ghastly election-year also-rans everywhere. They panegyrize Travis's crusade to cultivate an unhealthy sense of victimhood and, more importantly, they don't realize that you shouldn't let Travis intimidate you. You shouldn't let him push you around. We're the ones who are right, not Travis. Anyway, the consequence of all this is that that fact is simply inescapable to any thinking man or woman. "Thinking" is the key word in the previous sentence. In summary, it is my prayer that people everywhere will join me in my quest to champion the force of goodness against the greed of destructive, shiftless freaks.
