I have a question for you seasoned vets.

I've been to several Pacers Playoff games since 2001, but my wife of 3 years had never experienced it. So, after much deliberation, I bought tix at the last minute and ended up in 221, Row 11. Hey, no such thing as a bad seat.

Well, heres the issue:

The game was great. But the Bulls fans around us were awful, completely trashed and disrespectful. Early in the first quarter, a Pacers fan shouted "PACERS" directly at one of the Bulls fans in front of us. Well, the Bulls fan responded by threatening to "kick the **** out of you!" and repeatedly saying, "Do it again, I dare you. Little *****!"

Well, I was able to calm both down and get back to what was shaping up to be a great game. However, the Bulls fan begins chanting "Hibbert is a ****y, **** the Pacers! You guys SUCK ***!!

Then, a Pacers fan who had drank a bit too much began chanting "**** the Bulls" over and over. Everyone around him insisted he stop, but the idiot Bulls fan began threatening to come over there and start something, going so far as to get up and start moving. Well, after about 30 seconds of terrible profanity and threats, I stepped in and shoved the drunk Pacers fan out of the way, and told the Bulls fan to chill or get ejected. Right on cue, security shows up and drags the Bulls fan off. Well, the Bulls fan was able to LIE to security (Apparently, I didn't hear the words out of his mouth.) Security let him stay, and ejected the Pacers fan. Just like that.

First issue: Bulls fan needed to be gone as well. Period. They both needed bounced.

Second issue: The Bulls fan was calm until the third quarter when he got mouthy again, including flipping the crowd off REPEATEDLY. Well, security comes back because they had recieved MULTIPLE complaints (There were little kids, like 3 to 6, and he was shouting F words like it was what kept him alive). All security does is warn him to calm down, and leaves. At the end of the game, he, showing great originality, shouted "F YOU!" over and over at Pacers fans.

This was the first ever playoff game my wife had attended, and I had to be on edge the entire time because these disrespectful and DRUNK Bulls fans.

Who can I contact regarding this? I'm coming back to the game Saturday, should I try to speak with Customer Service?

I know I could just let it go, but for all the times I've been to Conseco, this was the one time where I was genuinely concerned something would happen.

By the way, the fans were in section 221, row 10, seats 5-8. Even the Usher was shocked security allowed the Bulls fans to stay.

Advice? I'm really bummed. Incredible game! Loved it! But, the Chicago fans really hurt the experience.

Sorry to hear about your experience. I've had to sit near idiots before and it really takes all the fun out of the game. Please come back and support the team if you can make it.

I don't really know whom you should contact, hopefully someone will chime in and help you out. I know a few Pacer employees respond here on the forum at times.

I understand how frustrating this can be, and I used to complain to ushers or whomever, but eventually I got to the point where, I know this is sports and there are going to be ***holes regardless if it bothers me, so I just ignore them now.

Can not speak for the Pacers or their PR staff.

However, I complained about that exact same kind of crap at Redskins game (via the Redskins web-site) and Bruce Allen called me and actually personally responded that he heard and and it would be fixed.

At the games the most you can do is go to security or get a usher, but sadly most of the time there is not much they can do.

I don't know that you can contact anyone at this point.

Next time I'd just make a big deal out of it to the ushers as opposed to just mentioning it. This is a family environment, and if people want to get liquored up so be it. But they need to do it elsewhere where children are not exposed to it.

Frankly, I'd do it to a Pacer or Bulls fan. It's ridiculous what a bit of alcohol will do to people.

I am genuinely sorry for your experience, as I feel your pain. But if you feel a fight may happen or peoples safety is involved, find one of the IMPD security officers if the ushers won't listen.

When Rose hit that final shot, some idiot bulls fan threw his hat down onto the lower level. I sit in Area 55 so he was right in front of me on the edge. His hat landed in the tunnel near Larry. He was taken off lol.

I had this same problem.

I was sitting in section 210 and there were probably only 50 Pacers fans. They were disrespectful the whole game and kept telling me how much the Pacers sucked.

Whenever they were throwing t-shirts into the crowd, one of the fans threw it back toward the Bulls bench, but he was later thrown out (I believe).

Then my friend and I were being made fun of as we left. Pacers fans should not have to deal with this treatment at their own house.

I think everyone can agree with me that overall Bulls fans are pricks.

Best part of the crowd was when the Bulls fan caught a T-shirt. He decided to throw it back from the upper deck he chucked it and it hit the Bulls bench with force i was :lol2:. Best part is the Bulls fan got kicked out lol.

You should be able to go to Guest Relations and ask to speak with the head of security if you get no satisfaction elsewhere. Kids should not have to be exposed to profanity-laced tirades.

All my friends and I usually smoke a bowl or two before we go to games. Our chants are always creative and we usually have everyone around us, including children, cracking up and having a good time.

They should sell overpriced bong hits instead of beer I think.

I was in section 211 as well and saw the guy get bounced for throwing the t-shirt back. I have seen about ten different teams come into the Fieldhouse over the past few years, granted none of them were playoff games except for tonight, but it was by far the worst group of fans I have seen. I was in a rush to get to the game, I actually thought my tickets were in section 221 and there was a very drunk girl standing up the first 6 minutes dropping bombs in front of a 6 or 7 year old kid. I felt bad that the Dad was powerless against this. On the walk back to the car I heard, "**** you country people." No class.

I had another bone to pick with Conseco...I know I wasn't there to drink and I had only one beer but the lines were out of this world and I missed some of the third quarter waiting in line only to hear, "Beer is gone!" The whole balcony ran out of beer it seemed like. Not a major issue at all I just couldn't believe they ran out of it.

I know this has nothing to do with Conseco, but it took us an hour to get out of the Express Parking Garage while the Huntington Bank garage was sending out cars left and right. Really, Indy? No traffic control?

Overall, it was great to witness playoff basketball. I'm glad it is back in Indiana and look forward to going to more in the future.

Traffic control issue sucks they need to not have road blocks and just let traffic flow they do more harm then good.

I have to agree. Sat next to a shmammered bulls fan, who kept giving an older couple a hard time. Finally, he forced his friend (a pacer fan) to leave with him. He could barely walk down the stairs. The bulls fans there tonight definetly didn't represent themselves well.

Oh, I already have my tix for Saturday. Ive been to Conseco enough to know this is the exception, not the rule. I should note, we didn't simply "mention" it to an usher, there were at least 4separatte complaints.

I wont be in balcony again, amd to be honest, I won't be taking my wife to a bulls game ever again. These people were out of control, way worse than sixers or nets, hell, even Celtics fans.

This team will win the fieldhouse back for us. I read the quote from Reggie tonight about how MSA used to be 60% bulls fans in the early 90s until we got good then it wasnt like that anymore. Only negative is it will be harder/more expensive for us non season ticket holders to get in.

here's the blurb from ESPN...


Former Pacer Reggie Miller said he remembers the early 1990s when his team would host the Bulls at Market Square Arena and the crowd would be about 60 percent Bulls fans. He said that changed when the Pacers proved to be legitimate Eastern Conference contenders. Noting Chicago's history of traveling in large numbers, Vogel asked the fans to support the team, joking that metal detectors would keep Bulls fans out of the building. The game was a sellout, and Indiana had a clear advantage in crowd support. Indiana, which was last in the league in attendance during the regular season, had just six sellouts before Thursday's game. ... Rev. Jesse Jackson attended the game to support the Bulls. He stood along the baseline in pregame warmups, and even chatted with Rose for a few moments.

Don't any of you have Ticket Reps that you call up to get tickets?

Maybe if enough of you complain to the Reps that they may actually inform Customer Relations people in the FO about it to step up security.

This type of behavior can be expected when you go to an opponents game....but at home...that's just terrible.

I have never been to any sporting events that was so unprofessional as the game was tonight. The security was a complete joke. I was forced to miss the end of a Bulls win, yet again, because a crowd decided I should go. They ran out of beer on the balcony and I was forced to wait for the entire 2nd quarter to get one. I will never go to another Indianapolis sporting event in fear that they may be as terrible as this. The Pacers fans were complete idiots and instigated all the Bulls fans near me. Sorry that you live in a small market and your team is irrelevant. Also, to all those who are unhappy about the trash talk between the fans, my advice would be to not go to any more games, especially not any playoff games. Terrible experience and Conseco was a joke.

Your best bet is to let the Pacers know that you will not return to the fieldhouse unless they make a better effort in controlling the obnoxious fans.

Don't let them fool you into thinking there is only so much you can do. They need to hire real cops with real guns during the playoffs when they can make a real educated guess what the place is going to be like.

Ushers or in-house security just doesn't have the same impact to get someone's attention. Now when someone is drunk it probably and usually doesn't matter because they're still going to pull the same stuff. However, everyone around the idiot who still have some of their faculties will get a clue when they realize the guy is escorted out.

On a side note.....what's funny as hell was the lady usher who just had to check my ticket when my hands were full with a large soda and the massive tray of nachos. She had checked earlier to point out where our seats were. Now I understand it's hard to recognize so many faces, even in a short time. However, I find it a mystery she made sure to check me out wearing my Pacer gear, yet less than a minute later she was helping someone find their handicap spot as Bulls after Bulls fans entered without nary a word. It was almost like she was frightened of them.

Thanks for sharing the stories everyone. We were sitting in the lower level and the Bulls fans near us were all pretty well behaved. People who could afford good seats were there to enjoy the game and their seats, not to talk trash and act a damn fool. So you have the Bulls fans in the balcony who were most likely a much younger crowd than the ones in the lower sections. Those fans probably planned their entire trip to Indy around getting **** faced and talking crap to Pacers fans and not actually paying attention to the game. They probably budgeted their money so that they could afford the cheap balcony seat and still have just enough money left to get hammered on whatever their alcohol of choice was. With those type of people, it typically doesn't matter where they're at, they're always douchebags. They also are most likely the "fans" who weren't around during the years between when Jordan left and Rose arrived.

A couple of things...

The NFL started taking this seriously a couple of years ago. At Colts games there are large signs and it flashes on the scoreboard several times, that if there is an issue (a drunk, profanity, fight,whatever...) text your seat location to a certain number and they will dispatch security immediately. The NBA should take note. (Too bad I can never get service on my iPhone in The Luc)

Also, yes the bulls fans were rough last night but no one....NO ONE, even comes close to Piston and Knick fans when it comes to lacking class. They are some of the worst individuals on the face of the planet. God some of the **** I had to put up with at MSA and later Conseco during those series. Scourge of the Earth.

The NFL has the text XXXX to get security.

Hope you do not mind, I emailed PacersInsider@Pacers.com (PacersInsider@Pacers.com?subject=PacersInsider@Pa cers.com) and mentioned this thread. One of my all time pet peeves are sporting events that are not family friendly.

Lastly, someone mentioned cell phone video cameras. Great idea.

04-22-2011, 10:09 AM
Language is probably one of the biggest red flags to security. If you can't get an usher or other local section person to do anything about it, get one of the security people out on the concourse. This isn't going to be as effective for adults who are there on their own, but if you have a kid with you when you complain you will very likely get quick action.

Thanks for coming to last night's game. I have forwarded your post to BJ Matthews, the Conseco Fieldhouse Guest Relations Manager. I'd suggest calling her at (317) 917-2500 and providing her your story as she will be better equipped than me to take action.

Any fan attending the game that is having an issue - especially if you're safety or the safety of others is at risk - should go to the nearest usher or security guard. The playoffs can bring some great intensity to the arena, but that intensity shouldn't cross the line to anything threatening.

See you Saturday for Game 4 (Home Game 2).

Never again will we see us dead last in attendance and most likely not in the lower 20s.

I'm thinking a 16,212 average next season. Lots more ticket packs going.

HAHAHAHAHAHA

I was at the game and the bulls fans were awful guests all night, and after the game they patrolled the hall chanting **** indiana **** indiana... Some bulls fans deserved to be put in their place and yet none were attacked unlike the pacers fans who were getting things thrown at them in the United Center, despite being respectful, unlike the drunken rowdy, rude bulls fans that permeated conseco.

By the way conseco is a much, much nicer facility than the united center, per unbiased observers and critics and we're playing your elite team awfully close for an "irrelevant" franchise, despite having flexibility to further improve our roster and significant youth.

As far as trash talk the bulls fans vernacular seemed to consist of only idiotic "MVP MVP" every 5 seconds or incredibly insulting things such as "**** indiana, **** indiana". The bulls fans that attended the game were largely classless, and I can only imagine that they were feeling insecure due to being unable to soundly beat an 8th seeded team.

The sense of entitlement chicago fans have is baffling, at least teams like the celtics and lakers have proven something, you guys aren't exactly lighting up the world vs. the 8th seed in your "title run" :rollseyes year. Stay classy windy city. I was proud of our fans tonight for enduring the jackasses in red that showed no respect despite not being in chicago. There were lots of them, but our pacers fans were much louder, and didn't stoop down to the level of the chicago fans in games one and two with the pacers/ granger suck chants, every time they tried to start one we drowned them out with cheers, just as it should be.

Is it just me or is the "yet again" kind of a giveaway here?

Speaking in general, I would like to see the Conseco staff be very intolerant to any shenanigans by a road team fan in the building. Send them out early and often to show the rest how it's going to be. This kind if misbehavior needs to be snuffed out.

I'm all for guest who are there to root for their team and to be good natured, but the second they start harassing people, their asses need to be kicked to the curb!

Besides, you already have their money.....

I was a little insulted after the game. While standing to talk with other PD people, there were waives of Bulls fans hollering and chanting on there way out. That's one thing, but what got me a little upset was a cluster of them who just lingered, standing at thhe top of the main stairs. Why not send them on their way instead of giving them 15 minutes to egg on the other Bulls fans?

I guess this wouldn't bother me so much, if not for the fact that after the last Knicks game, WE were being told to move along by CFH staff. Apparently we were too close to the incident between the Knicks fans and other Paces fans. We weren't involved, but off we went.

If you're going to do that to us, you should do it to them.

REPOST:

I have no problem with being a good host in theory. But I also agree that people need to be good guests. Chicago fans calling Pacers fans rednecks, threatening to beat them up for cheering for the home team, and just plain getting drunk and obnoxious should not be acceptable behavior in Conseco. If the ushers are unwilling to enforce the rules, it lies on the fans to get the opposing team fans to shut up or leave.

I have had mostly a good experience being a Pacers fan at Wizards games wearing a Pacers jersey, but then again I keep my mouth shut, chill out with the Wizards fans around me, and never insult them unless it is obvious good natured joking around. If Chicago fans are going to be disrespectful, then they don't deserve our respect or good graces. I am happy to chill out with and engage with the fans of an opposing team, but I also expect them to respect that they are in our building. Just like you would respect someone's home if you were invited to dinner. I have a big old labrador and my friend's wife forced them to buy this puny little rat dog poodle. That doesn't mean when I go to his house I'm going to kick his dog around and start chanting YOUR DOG SUCKS and wave a picture of my lab in his face.

A couple of things...

The NFL started taking this seriously a couple of years ago. At Colts games there are large signs and it flashes on the scoreboard several times, that if there is an issue (a drunk, profanity, fight,whatever...) text your seat location to a certain number and they will dispatch security immediately. The NBA should take note. (Too bad I can never get service on my iPhone in The Luc)

Also, yes the bulls fans were rough last night but no one....NO ONE, even comes close to Piston and Knick fans when it comes to lacking class. They are some of the worst individuals on the face of the planet. God some of the **** I had to put up with at MSA and later Conseco during those series. Scourge of the Earth.

While I understand what you are saying I am going to disagree about N.Y. fans.

For the most part all of the ones I have dealt with over the years were great fans and knew the game.

In fact one of the best playoff game I have ever been to I sat next to a Knicks fan and he & I talked about basektball and players the entire game sharing our opinions. It was a blast, well we won that game so that helped.

This guy was a gentleman 100% through & through. Never once talked trash, never once cursed. When his team lost he said "Hopefully next time" and we parted ways.

As I'm leaving MSA I decide to stop in the bathroom. Much to my horror there is this N.Y. fan laying on the floor with this idiot drunken Pacer fan standing over him. For wearing his N.Y. shirt the drunkard decided that he should hit him from behind. I did what I could to get him out of there but it took several security people & eventually Police to clear the bathroom.

Idiots come in all shapes and sizes.

However Bulls fans do hold a special place in the rankings of idiots. In some way's they almost can't help themselves because as a team they have a really weird history.

They usually are nothing, often times less than nothing, then all of a sudden they have one of the best players of all time. Greatness for slightly over a decade and then nothingness again. Then they get another of the the great players and they are back up again.

Their fans only really know greatness & sucking, it's almost like there is never a building phase for them.

Pacer fans have never had a great player, we have always had to build and frankly have never been to the top.

Our fans are a little more used to humility than what they are.

I used to have a test back in the day to determine who was a real Bulls fan and who was a front running Jordan Jock sniffer. If they couldn't tell me who the "A-train" was then I knew they were just followers of his airness.

I need to come up with something new for them. Maybe something about Bill Winnington.:)

I was forced to miss the end of a Bulls win, yet again, because a crowd decided I should go. They ran out of beer on the balcony and I was forced to wait for the entire 2nd quarter to get one. I will never go to another Indianapolis sporting event in fear that they may be as terrible as this. The Pacers fans were complete idiots and instigated all the Bulls fans near me. Sorry that you live in a small market and your team is irrelevant. Also, to all those who are unhappy about the trash talk between the fans, my advice would be to not go to any more games, especially not any playoff games.

If the ushers won't do something, go to the next level up. Ask the usher if uyou can speak with theur supervisor, and keep going if needed.

The answer is to be MORE well-behaved than the asshats.

Agreed with Knicks fans. I was really young when that rivalry was going on, but I remember going to one of the playoff games with my Dad and sitting by this guy from NYC that had come to the game. He knew the game and generally a good guy to be around. There was also plenty of good natured ribbing going around. Some drunk idiot tried to approach the guy and bother him and my Dad, an avowed Knicks hater and Pacers fan, quickly alerted the usher and got the guy thrown out.

Again, if you give respect you will get respect.

I agree with that in theory, but there are times where the situation is too fluid and if the usher immediately there won't do anything, you have no time to talk to the supervisor. I don't agree with collectively kicking a guy's *** or anything like that, but situations will arise where a bunch of fans, hopefully fans of both teams, will drag some drunk moron out of his seat and bring him to the nearest cop unless the ushers start doing their jobs. It is not a foolproof system and shouldn't even be needed but in many cases it is better than letting a fluid situation escalate.

There's a difference between some smack talk, which I don't mind, and I think actually can be fun in a close game and the Very different case of drunken simpletons simply looking to cause trouble, who patrol the halls uttering and chanting profanity over and over, where children and the elderly are trying to leave, and are disrupting the experience. More unexcusable even is the amount of leeway given to them by the pacers staff. Troublemaking fans of the opponent shouldn't be given preferential treatment over the hometown fans that the team is trying to win back. I don't give a **** how far you drove to get to the game, show some common sense if you don't want to drive back to chicago listening to the game on the radio. Our security should make bouncing troublemaking bulls fans from conseco a top priority saturday. The last thing we need is bad word of mouth from locals who had their experienced ruined by classless chicagoeans.

The NBA is a family experience, and people shouldn't feel uncomfortable bringing their wives and children because hometown security won't do their jobs bouncing the opposing riff-raff.

Bull****. This isn't about hurt feelings. Its about being disrespected in our house, it's about not being able to enjoy the game we paid to come see, and in some cases there are idiots who are a physical threat. Let alone if you come with a spouse or children.

We may not see eye to eye on many things, but on this we totally agree.

I go to the Cowboys - Redskins game every year, and trash talking is just part of the fun. However, a few games ago a guy (who was with his 11 year old daughter) was taunting the Dallas kicker (who was warming up on the sidelines in front of us" and calling him a "pussy *** *****" and a "**** mother****er". The usher asked him to "please stop, come on man, you even have a young lady with you", and he replied "It is OK. She hears me talk like this all the time." This set the usher off, and he responded "Just because you do it at home does not mean I will let you do it here"

Fans pay money to enjoy the games. Heckling is OK. When you make an *** out out yourself, be is by swearing at every little things, throwing a shirt back on the court, or simply trying to be the biggest jerk in the world, you ruin that experience for people who paid to have a good time.

Sure, some people may be fanatics and want to see the team win (and even get super bummed when they lose) but no one should ever be so invested in a game that a usher or security need to be called due to aggressive behavior or a fight (or worse a fan getting beat up, outside of a stadium)

Lastly, it is a 100% joke a Bulls fan was allowed to work the game. For most Redskins games, the staff are 100% not allowed to be Redskins fans. We actually have a large number of Dallas and non-NFL fans, as it ensures that the ushers and staff will not be sitting around watching the game.

Peck I actually agree with you about Knicks fans as a whole and probably shouldn't have included them with TRULY AWFUL Pistons fans. I think my memory is tainted by a certain group of fans that we sat around during one of the infamous clashes of the 90's. They spent the whole series riding Reggie about the fire at his house and the drunker they got the worse the comments got.....up to the point of wishing Reggie and his Mom, amongst others, had died in the fire. It wasn't just 2 guys either...it was a group of probably 12-15. But you are right.....having spent time in New York, I can vouch for the fact that New Yorkers know their ****.

Thanks for sharing the stories everyone. We were sitting in the lower level and the Bulls fans near us were all pretty well behaved. People who could afford good seats were there to enjoy the game and their seats, not to talk trash and act a damn fool. So you have the Bulls fans in the balcony who were most likely a much younger crowd than the ones in the lower sections. Those fans probably planned their entire trip to Indy around getting **** faced and talking crap to Pacers fans and not actually paying attention to the game. They probably budgeted their money so that they could afford the cheap balcony seat and still have just enough money left to get hammered on whatever their alcohol of choice was. With those type of people, it typically doesn't matter where they're at, they're always douchebags. They also are most likely the "fans" who weren't around during the years between when Jordan left and Rose arrived.

I talk to a few Chicago fans and they were as nice as could be. To bad the others spoiled the good Bulls fans rep per say.

They didn't use the wand on me or make me go through the metal detectors. Nothing. Did anyone else experience this?

Once again I think the hosts were trying to show a fan friendly atmosphere. Wrong decision, bad judgement. When your average fan knew there was going to be a ton of Chicago fans in attendance I would think they would have had a better plan.

Once again, before you even step a foot inside and everyone becomes liquored up, you put that fear of God into the folk by seeing the folks with badges. 4 or 5 cops standing in the stairway as you enter would get my attention that crap is not going to be tolerated.

Completely wrong. Just because this is a sporting event where beer is sold, that doesn't give anyone the right to check their manners at the door. Home fans, away fans, it doesn't matter. You are still in public, act like human beings. Would you walk down the street and tell people something they like sucks, or their city sucks, or tell them to go f*** themselves? No, so why do people think it's acceptable once they're inside?

It's so rare to find decency anymore, and this idiot mob mentality is a huge problem.

I wore a Cubs jersey to a SF Giants game last season, and the fans were totally classy and treated me really well. I got a couple jabs about how they haven't won in 100 years or whatever, but it was always with a smile so I knew they were just messing around. I never felt unwanted and I will go back and spend my money at AT&T Park as often as I can because the fans treat people with respect, it's a great place to watch a game, and I don't have to sit and listen to drunk douchebags tell me that the Cubs are this or that.

I have been a Pacers season ticket holder for over 18 years and not once did I feel like I was about to get into a fist fight at a game like I did today.

Never have I seen or heard more obnoxious, classless and clueless people in my life. Go back to Chicago creeps, and stay there.
