Oh no, the funny joke upsets management. How about when we stop buying tickets to the horrible product, does that upset anyone?

Talk about a lack of priorities. PD doesn't want to have managements interest nearly as much as management should want ours. Let's say you log in one day and there is no more PD and none of the current PD members really care all that much that it's gone.

That should be really nice when it comes time to cut paychecks with Simon's name on the bottom. The good news is you can split $0 income as many ways as you want without shortchanging anyone.

It's intended target was other PD fans (unless he mailed it or a link to someone else) and it appears to be very well received so far.

This is what fans say of NBA teams that get blasted into oblivion night after night. I could have paid my ridiculously high property taxes with my ticket money this year.

So how does management think it's intended target feels about it's little 3 month display? Do you think it's being well received?

PD will exist without the Pacers blessing, interest or whatever. The Pacers will not exist without a fanbase, and the PD core is about as rabid as the fanbase gets. You lose their interest and all you are is a place that stars from other teams show up, the ticket draw will be 100% based on which star is in town that night.

How about how demeaning this process of reconnection has been to the fans. How insulting has it been to be told things and then see something that contradicts that?

I mean I'll give credit that finally after months (going back to last year) of complaining we are finally seeing the very grudging application of changes - Roy is finally getting some chances to be the man, but of course that's always on the verge of being yanked away. Price finally got PT only a few weeks after we were told he was outplaying the other PGs. Ford finally got sat after Jack and 80% of the fanbase complained about his style for more than a year.

But Rush just got trashed out right as he was having 2 of his best games. McRoberts plays several great games and not only doesn't see his minutes continue as a reward for it, he actually goes into deep DNP even with the team extremely low on bigs.

There are fits of intolerance and often the product and method on the floor seems in direct contradiction to what is said to the fans in the press.



We have patience for a rebuild, otherwise we'd already be gone. We were looking for a rebuild some time ago in fact. I have no problem appreciating that Roy, Rush and Price will still make mistakes and have bad games.

In fact, the fanbase is MORE accepting of those issues than management or coaching appears to be. That's part of the problem. WE have bought into this process, and the insult is that the team hasn't.

At least not all the team.


So if this is one of our ticket brokers, or a video tape assistant, or coach Harter or Troy Murphy, I get that winning back the fans is a lot of work and that it sucks to work at it only to have fans trash out the team.

But that video above is NOT more insulting than the last 2 games were to every single Pacers fan. Losing is one thing, not giving a F*** is something else. I don't believe that was a full effort, no way. I've seen all these guys play much better than that.

Management should watch it, get upset and hate us. Then they'll be walking in our shoes when we watch games like the Florida trip. OKC, that was a loss, the FLA games, that was offensive and indefensible.

If we fall behind by 20 points in the first quarter one more time before the All Star break I think I might give up on the Pacers. At least last year's team competed and was fun to watch. Who would have guessed Jack was the corn that held the polished turd together last season? Now we are just left with a turd and no shine.

Damn man, brutal, but honest. Yeah I miss Jack, corn that he is. He was more important than most realized. I really like DJones too, but Jack was able to hold his on court leader role, while it seems Dahntay has all but given up or been given the vote of no confidence by the coach.

God, think if we could have had gotten rid of Murph or Dun, kept Jack and picked up Dahntay, and had a new coach to start this season. /sigh sa la vie

At this point it seems like we need addition by subtraction. Murph, Dun and our coach need to be exorcized from our team to start the healing process. (just my opinion of course). Actually we could just keep them and get a new coach who will play them correctly (sparingly). Hard nosed defense builds pride. Fast break jump shooting fluffy bunny pussies do not bulid pride.

Neither are acceptable.

To suggest that the Pacers are trying reconnecting to their "fan base" is weak at best, and laugable at worst. If there were no free or deeply discounted tickets to casual fans, the franchise might have 2,500 in the building weeknights and 5,000 on weekends except against the three teams that have been singled out in Pacers promotions because they have the elite players in the league as the draws to Conseco for fans of the sport of basketball, many of whom could not possibly care less if the Pacers are even in town that night. They just want to see Kobe, Lebron, etc.

In an effort to rectify the situation, the Pacers are catering to the extremities that are the casual basketball fans as a primary source of "reconnection" due to the relatively easy cheap promotional cost for just getting bodies in the building.

The key to recovering the Pacers ACTUAL fan base would mean catering to its core like those of us here (which is only done when it absolutely has to be in my experience as a former 10 year season ticket holder for the franchise, this year being my first year of freedom since the franchise moved to Conseco) first, which then should lead to slightly less rabid fans who associate with us becoming more interested due to our enthusiasm, and so on, and so on.

We are the fans who have been with the franchise as fans for a long period of time through both good and bad times. To have coaches and leaders of the team come out and double speak like politicians is to be expected, but we are not often fooled as a collective. To not expect decidedly scathing posts is totally unrealistic to expect in the position that those with the franchise are in, and the only difference here is that it was done with a significant bump in humor due to the format it was presented in.

Otherwise, basically, the true fan base is extremely upset with PS&E and those involved in both the decision making processes and those executing the "basketball" plans on the floor, as well as those players we perceive to be at the heart of the effort and chemistry issues.

If you actually happen to be in any of those positions, I suggest that you approach whoever it takes to begin a quick and thorough house cleaning from the top to the bottom within the organization if you wish for "demeaning" posting to stop in this public forum that probably has more true Pacer fans than any other single place on the internet, and the remaining former fan base that is less actively engaged in the consumption of Pacers related news and commentary to actually start returning to the franchise.

Otherwise, truthfully, if you don't think that most of us here have valid points to what we are posting (though admittedly in over-the-top emotional outbursts more frequently this year due to higher frustration), at least don't be surprised about it and tell us, as fans, that we shouldn't express ourselves in the way we see fit during what is the worst time in the last 20+ years of this franchise, and perhaps the worst since the Simon family saved the franchise.

Because I'm a fair guy and I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. He hinted that he might in some way be close to or even involved with the team. I know some of the ticket sales guys browse here at times, obviously MB does, who knows who else. I'm being sincere here. If he's just trolling then that will become apparent at some point, but this struck me as someone that found it hitting too close to home (as in involved with the team).


I'm blasting the IDEA that they'd be upset as well.


I think its pretty obvious I'm not blasting anyone of TPTB if they aren't bothered to find out that fans are frustrated and venting. Maybe some of them don't want to hear it, but I think Bird is a big boy and could hack it. Ditto for Morway. I think they are trying and as long as its not working they are neither satisfied nor expecting a free pass for effort.

To be honest, JOB doesn't use Roy very effectively so if it's based totally on O'Brien's system then I somehow agree. The team clearly played better without Roy last night.

Having a player as good as Roy AND not using him effectively, that's where I have the issue.

I thought the Suns game was a turning point for Roy, but I guess not.


ALL of this, of course, is assuming Roy is benched. Has this even been confirmed?

No need for disappointment...everyone is bored right now and can't wait for the next season to
get under way.

Nothing wrong with taking a little look back; it helps give perspective on just how far we've come.

And as for poking fun at Obie, other than his silver sideburns reminding me of a capuchin monkey,
appreciate his even coming to the Pacers considering the very very tough situation he knew he was
getting himself into.

I know there has basically nothing worth discussing in Pacerland recently(part of the reason coming here has been disappointing). I just got so tired of people b@%$ing about JOB(some justified some not), any mention annoys me now.

Well I always love the "as soon as it's over then move on" attitude people take about sports stuff. Hey, Americans, it's Dec 18, 1941, time to get over the whole Pearl Harbor thing, sheesh. You just keep beating it to death.

Yes, I'm fully aware of the differences here but it's an ANALOGY addressing the foolish idea that the instant something stops being true you should just be emotionally over it. That's ridiculous. The JOB era went on at least a year longer than it should have, and all this "JOB had it tough" is BS because all we wanted was for him to DEVELOP THE KIDS so that by the year he was fired he'd actually have them playing .500 ball and showing a level of experience. That Vogel was able to do this in about 3 weeks only made many of us more bitter about the wasted years.

That's what bugs me most of all, that the development of the team was hindered by JOB and drug behind by a couple of years on the whole "yes but brawl..." cover. This thread said it all, just freaking play Roy and you can keep your job. That's all JOB had to do.

Now Roy's getting his $15m per and fans would have been thrilled to give him 10-11m if not the fully 15. That's a far cry from how JOB treated him, yet only about 90-100 games past when Roy "had a long way to go to be good". And that's ignoring the all-star appearance well before that.


The strawman of "it was a tough spot" is just such crap. It was an easy spot because the fans knew the team wouldn't win and that it was rebuild time. Instead of doing that and taking pride in the improvement of the kids on his watch, he benched them and milked Troy, Dun, Ford and Posey for all the wins he thought they could give him while prolonging the healing process (developing the future core).

I agree JOB had it pretty easy. We knew we weren't going to be good all he had to do was playing young guys. And he pretty much banished our 2 best defensive players to the bench for long portions of their development (Roy and Paul). That's pretty telling that JOB rewarded one end of the floor over the other. I.E. DC got here as a second year player under JOB and was the unquestioned starting point from day 1, which end is DC strongest at again? (Not trying to hate on DC here, but it's true...JOB rewarded offense over D.)

Whats Obie doing these days? Its always interesting to me with a player or coach leaves one of my teams and he's not picked up by someone, its pretty telling, I think.

Ironically, had JOB continued with the playing style that was WORKING in the first weeks of that final season instead of reverting to jack-a-3 when he discovered that Posey could do an excellent Troy Murphy impression, I think he'd have a job somewhere.

The mouth says "I could care less".

The heart means "I could care less".

The expression is "I couldn't care less".

I wonder if JOB has shoulder hair that is such a stark contrast like the capuchin monkey.

I think if he'd had played the youngsters, what would it have meant 5-8 games different in the Loss column, if even that. That was the toughest pill to swallow, you had youngster who were better, but just inconsistent. In retrospect, I hope the franchise looks back to the Dunleavy/Murphy trade and every time since then and realize winning 34 games and prolonging the turnaround isn't helping your fanbase, it isn't keeping them hanging on, it solidifying the casual fans indifference. I said it then, give a winner or at least give me hope in the future. Those years were neither and it was pretty tough.

Yep they should have flipped the fans in indy the bird and just kept Steven Jackson. (only half joking) .

I hate the revisionist history around here. (for Naptown) Roy couldn't stay on the floor because he was a foul magnet and slow as a rookie. 2nd year Roy broke down (by his own admission) mid season. Roy developed just fine. He is far better now than he was as a rookie.

At the beginig of PG's Rookie season he was horrible with team defense. While he was always a great on the ball defender, he was constantly out of position(normal for a young rookie). Most the players people complained needed developed are no longer a part of this team.

Screw the ex- coach, just don't pretend like his haters rallying call wasn't for Mcroberts to get more minutes. Why don't people just accept that he was a baby sitter brought here to run a tight ship until we were out of cap hell. We were going to suck with or without him.

I choose sucking without him and by sucking I mean no more than 20 wins a year. With the clown the Pacers not only sucked but they sucked without a purpose.

The venom wouldn't have been nearly as bad if we had sucked while actually playing our young players and getting them valuable playing time instead of sucking because our idiot head coach wanted to give TroyJames PoseyMurphy 15+ minutes a game while our young players sat at the end of the bench or in a suit. Remember how Bird had to practically force O'Brien to play Tyler, so the moron responded by not dressing Josh and continue the force-feeding of James Posey?

I hated JOB's system and rotations. But I was not fed up until he was extended. That made no sense and the writing was on the wall. And for the lame duck excuse? I just do not buy it. For a GM who just does a handshake agreement with the owner, he would then be a lame duck to the staff he has surrounded himself with. Maybe that is why Morway was such a slouch, and JOB himself was whatever he was.

All I know is the handshake, good ole boy, my word is oak agreements are not concrete and do not allow closure. Now Donny has a lame duck handshake agreement.

Except that we stopped sucking the moment he was fired.
