Mysterious delay of the game right now. No players are on the floor.

No mystery to it. The Pacers received a threat and the team left the building.

If there were no 11/19, this kind of thing wouldn't be taken so seriously (the Pistons got one in Boston a couple weeks ago), but obviously they have to do an investigation now.

This kind of thing happens in every city in the NBA and it rarely causes a delay, but I can understand why the pacers left briefly.

The game should start shortly, Pistons TV says.

Interesting, however, that this is happening in Detroit, not Indy... I mean, what do the Detroit fans have to be angry about? They're off the hook...

Hey, that happened in Indiana. Must have been pacer fans upset at Reggie for considering leaving as a free agent.....

Now that we see what fun generalizing fan bases is, hopefully we can have a game.

Kstat

A clarification: it wasn't a threat directed specifically at the Pacers, it was a bomb threat.

Pistons TV says the threat has now been ruled as a hoax, and play can begin safely.

Hicks

Chill out. We all know the people we're all talking about, no one here thinks everyone is like that. We can speak freely about the (and there's more than a few) nutjub ****tards that do **** like this up there.


I'm sure Ben and Co. got plenty of threats from Pacer fans....

Well of course. Anytime something on your side of the fence does something wrong, I'm sure there's an exact same thing happening over here. That makes things OK.:unhappy:

Those were Knicks fans in the playoffs after he single-handled beat their team.

rationalize this all you want, Kstat. The FACT is that there have been 2 games played at Conseco Fieldhouse with no problems of any sort whatsoever, and so far in the 2 games played at the Palace we've had a riot and some sort of bomb threat or other threat against the Pacers. Keep in mind, had it been a generic bomb threat, they would have evacuated the arena. This is something that is specifically targeting the Pacers.

Kstat

yeah....I'm sure they threatened to put just enough C-4 to blow up JUST the pacers bench and nothing else.......

...or maybe they didnt consider it a credible threat enough threat to evacuate just yet. Not that I blame the Pacers for playing it safe.

I wish Reggie blows up for 40 points tonight and spanks the Pistons down. I want to see if some of the dirty piston fans will show their true colors again.
I wish Ben Wallace sprains his ankle and is out until Ron Artest comes back next season.

I still couldn't be more outraged that someone would find FUN in phoning ina fake bomb threat. Someone please find him and release his public info (providing he's not a minor). He needs to be made an example of.

When I was in highschool, kids used to phone in bomb threats so they could miss tests. They got exposed, and it went on their perminant record. That should happen here.

I still donb't see why a Pistons fan would do this, because a Pistons fan would WANT this game to be freakin played. But whoever it was, I hope he suffers.

I still donb't see why a Pistons fan would do this, because a Pistons fan would WANT this game to be freakin played.

Implying that a pacer fan wouldn't want this game to be played?

Even if you're not, why wouldn't a pacer fan threaten the pistons. There's no way that you can spin, it's retarded for a fan to threaten their own team. Doesn't make sense.

SIG, walk up to ANY big black man, and tell him he looks like a monkey. If he does not break your jaw, you will be a very lucky man.

The term "monkey" has been one of the worst racial stereotypes of black people, going back to the 1600's. I remember the old 1920's newspaper cartoon of joe Louis. It was a gurilla with boxing gloves.

Without trying to keep this convo going....

SIG, walk up to ANY big black man, and tell him he looks like a monkey. If he does not break your jaw, you will be a very lucky man.

The term "monkey" has been one of the worst racial stereotypes of black people, going back to the 1600's. I remember the old 1920's newspaper cartoon of joe Louis. It was a gurilla with boxing gloves.

Not trying to take this conversation any further, just an FYI for those of you that don't understand.

At one time, blacks were believed to be the closest to monkeys in the evolution swing of things . Plus monkeys were supposed to behave more maturely and have more brain power than blacks. Good thing actual science and logical thought prevailed (for the most part)...

AJ has improved. I remember last year, he couldn't get the offense going at all against detroit. We couldn't buy a bucket unless tinsley was running the show. Dale has alot to do with it tho. He somehow has a positive contribution to the offense with his limited abilities.

Dale is the man. Hope he gets a chance to play with JO

Does he?

You live in Crothersville, right? I was up there the other day, at Adam's funeral home.

For fun, the racial makeup-



The racial makeup of the city is 93.40% White, 1.02% African American, 0.30% Native American, 1.43% Asian, 0.05% Pacific Islander, 2.93% from other races, and 0.86% from two or more races. 4.85% of the population are Hispanic or Latino of any race.


I am not sure how old this is, I would think the hispanic population is larger now.
