Man - might be worth buying a nosebleed ticket just to see the fan reaction.

I'll have to see when the Mets play.

They aren't are they? I would never boo a player on my own team. I really really didn't like AJ but I never booed him. I was cheering for him too.

No I'm going to stand up and cheer for him just like every other member of the squad. I really want to go to see the overall fan reaction though.

Where do you see the word boo, outside of your post?

They said the wanted to SEE the reaction, not be a part of the reaction.

Also, as paying customers you have the right/responsiblity to voice your opinion on the product you're buying. I would boo TPTB right now, because this is dispicable.

We should have some type of get-together at the game. I'm sure there will be plenty of empty seats to the point where all the PD'ers can sit together.

Didn't Larry pretty much admit yesterday that he doesn't read the previous posts before he replies? He just "assumes" that whatever he wants to criticize is already there.

Oh, we've all known it. It just became patently obvious to everyone with his slip-up yesterday. Other times, he's done a better job of disguising it.

I wouldn't boo. Might laugh a little.

And no, I've never claimed to be a Pacer fan, real or otherwise.

Had to change my friggin' username because people kept making that vile accusation. :(

Ahhhh . . . it's refreshing to be back to the same old "you're not a fan" definition after the past few days.

Can't be on the tickets sold... They gave me my four for free... plus it's pre-season attendence is always lower then...

Anybody else looking at this from the perspective that this is an indication that we might be able to pull this off? Because like it or not, I think Jack has become a crucial part of this team.

p.s. I don't think any person has the right to tell any other person that they are a fan or not. I don't care if you've never even watched a game. As long as you support the team, we are brothers in arms. That's where I stand. To me, as much as we may differ on this board, we are all brothers in arms because when the time comes, we are all going to be hoping that Pacers beat the other team. That's what unite us. Our opinions beside that are just things said in the heat of battle or whatnot. We ride together and it's up to us. Or whatever.

Yeah except for the fact that he isn't a criminal. Has he been convicted of anything yet?

Why do you think he was on probation in the first place?

I don't care what any other circumstances are, this is good news.

At least in the short term. That's good enough for me at this point.

How? At best we get this stupid thing drug up form now until it goes to trial and he somehow gets off with no punishment at all.

The next level would be it gets drug out and he takes some plea deal to stay out of the slammer, but we still have the stain on the team.

We then sink to the Authorities in Detroit decide he needs to spend some time in jail for his stupidity for firing the gun while on probation.

Finally we reach the bottom where he goes to trial half way through the season and is forced to miss the rest of the season because of all of this. Does that sound familiar?

This is not going to fade away and will be a distraction as long as he plays. Had they paid him to take a vacation until after the trial, then it fades into the background.

Legally, yeah.

And I wasn't sure where to post this, but came across it and found it interesting. Not interesting in the age/college thing, but just to see a list of which NBA hooligans have done what. I love this game:

Actually, it is kind of interesting. The median number of years in college for NBA players arrested was 4, meaning full education. Also...

"Most notably, although 41.1 percent of all NBA players went to college for 4 years, 57.1 percent of arrested NBA players went to college for 4 years--meaning that players with four years of college represent a proportionally higher<o:p></o:p> percentage of arrested NBA players than all NBA players. In contrast, although 14.8 percent of NBA players either did not go to college or went for one year, only 9.6 percent of arrested NBA players share the same educational background--meaning that players with one or less years of college represent a proportionally lower percentage of arrested NBA players than all NBA players."

Take that, Stern.

I can see it now:

Reb Porter: Entering the Pacers lineup, Stephen Jackson.

Mark Boyle: Wow Slick, I never thought I'd see this. No reaction from the fans whatsoever.

Slick: There's a lady over there who's got the same "We support our team" sign she had at the first game.

Mark: There's nothing wrong with your radio, listeners. It's completely silent except for some annoying snickering sound coming from on high. It's like the fans are just watching each other to see what's going to happen.

Slick: Weirdest thing I've ever seen. Well, except for the '70s.

I think it's a negative for the team having Jackson back. I think they'd do better without him.
