Exactly. I figured that may happen.

I'm sure everyone is killing themselves cause Lindsay is gone. And I think Heywoode just :suicide3:
over Tiffany. But Michelle is back, so I know Magic Rat is happy, and my girl Kriston is back as well.

And newbies, you can look forward to the Official Hottest Pacemate Poll in October. We at Kegboy Industries need time to get all the girl's pictured in standarized outfits.

EDIT: These girls need lessons on how to pose for the camera and the photographer needs to shoot them from about waist high. The body positions and camera angles make them look bad.

I guess I was being generous when I scanned the photos I found 4 (maybe 5) that I would say are attractive. Considering that this is the dance team for a pro sports franchise, that is PATHETIC. Overall, a bad looking group of women.

If you just go by the website pictures I agree with you.
They ALWAYS look better in person than they do in the pictures. Not sure why there pictures always look bad, most of them are pretty cute in person.

Oh, I like a curvy well-proportioned woman, but Lindsay wouldn't make the Lakers squad and I never saw what all the hub-bub was about her. She's average. I guess I understand the school-boy attraction to her "best assets," but other than that...meh.

I could find more attractive girls, who would be more than willing to be the pacemates.

I know I was one of the few who really liked Johnica, so I'm PO'd. However, did they need to spit in my face by losing Lindsey and Kim too. :mad:

And I was pretty certain that I saw all 3 of them in the tryout photo that was posted, so it wasn't like they quit (I don't think).

Also the Asian girl whose name I forget and one of the other hot blonds I think are also both gone. So the team adds one really hot girl and drops 5-6 of the best ones (IMO).

Ugh, worst offseason ever so far.

I'll miss Tiffany the most, she had been around for awhile, and her most meaningful Pacers moment of all-time was Reggie's final game. She was a true fan and member of the Pacers community.

I'll also miss the low-angle, gratuitous shots of Lindsay's... well, Lindsay.

I'll also miss Ashley. She was new last year, but she was incredibly hot.

I'm glad to see Darcy back.

Best news of all, I went to high school w/ Natalie Wesley, so I'm pumped to see her on the team. Parkview High School in Little Rock, Arkansas also produced Derek Fisher and Quincy Lewis, and it's a rival to Central High School, which produced Joe Johnson.

If you're referring to the picture that was on Pacers.com last week, that was an old one from last year. An intern tried out to write a story about it, so they had a photographer there taking shots. The only pictures they've had from this year were the 4 in the poll.

I already had found that Tiffany wasn't coming back, but I had no idea that there would be such a large amount of turnover this offseason. I can't say that we didn't lose some ladies with good talent and multiple seasons under their belts.

Most of the Pacemates use their experience as a springboard to bigger and better things, and I wish them well with their future endeavors...some probably just decide that it's too time consuming and/or interferes with their other aspirations.

I am anxious to see how the new team does together, and I agree that the photos posted don't flatter the ladies very much. I could've done much better given the same access to them using the equipment I already own! I think most of them when seen in person, either walking around fan-browsing (which they need to do MORE of!) or performing during games will look much better than they do to us right now.

I'm here to give each of them a chance to show us what they can do before passing judgment...

GO PACEMATES! (and Pacers...)

I don't really see that the Heat dancers are hotter than the Pacemates....They do have better art on their website but it's not like the Heat ladies are all 10's or something....

You guys may think that Lindsay is bigger, but she really isn't. The other girls are twigs for the most part, and I think the outfits didn't flatter her that much. Standing next to Lindsay gave me a much clearer picture of how she is built. She is not big at all. She is tiny, or maybe I'm just HUUUGE!

One way or the other, almost any of these ladies, past and present squads, are head turners on the street. Without starting a "check out how hot MY wife is" thread, I would probably go on record as stating that any of us would be fine with having most any of the Pacemates as girlfriends/wives.

Again, it comes down to personal preference, but damn, I don't see how anybody can dispute the fact that these ladies are almost all 8's or above!
