Nice call ref........ :unimpress

Holy ****. Rick just got ejected.

Lord Helmet

Rick thrown out. I applaud Rick for sticking up for his players.

These refs are getting ridiculous.

Shade
03-01-2005, 07:21 PM
Do we have to go through this bull**** from the refs EVERY ****ING GAME?! :pissed:

Yeah, It just isn't fair.

Can anyone get me a live radio feed somehow?

Aw Heck
03-01-2005, 07:23 PM
Well, at least Rick got the crowd really into the game. The crowd is gonna be on the refs about EVERY call it seems.

Which is a good thing... hehe

Lord Helmet
03-01-2005, 07:24 PM
Ray Allen still being allowed to yap at the refs for every call on him......

03-01-2005, 07:24 PM
How did he get ejected so fast?

How did he get ejected so fast?
Being the Indiana Pacers head coach.

Shade
03-01-2005, 07:26 PM
How did he get ejected so fast?

Basically, he followed the ref all the way out to about the center of the floor.

Lord Helmet
03-01-2005, 07:26 PM
He ran to the center of the court yelling at one of the refs. And had to be held back by Cro.

Shade
03-01-2005, 07:34 PM
Seattle has already scored 30 points...

Aw Heck
03-01-2005, 07:37 PM
Pacers REALLY miss Tinsley and Foster. Just from this game so far, I think Dale is going to see some consistent minutes each game.

Jermaniac
03-01-2005, 07:37 PM
This isnt looking good, the refs are really trying to steal games from us.

Shade
03-01-2005, 07:42 PM
Fortson is just mugging people out there.

Lord Helmet
03-01-2005, 07:42 PM
Forston slams JJ and no foul... and JO gets an offensive foul from who else? Fortson.

Shade
03-01-2005, 07:42 PM
Fortson is also flopping everywhere like a little *****...and the refs are too damn stupid to realize it.

Lord Helmet
03-01-2005, 07:43 PM
Forston is a *****. Swinging with his elbows.

Shade
03-01-2005, 07:44 PM
Fortson needs to be ejected, and these refs need to be fired. This is bull****.

3ptmiller
03-01-2005, 07:44 PM

Lord Helmet
03-01-2005, 07:44 PM
I think this is the game, that will make me actually hate the refs.

wickedstick
03-01-2005, 07:46 PM
I agree this is bull****

Jermaniac
03-01-2005, 07:46 PM
I have hated the refs ever since we played the Lakers in the Finals.

Aw Heck
03-01-2005, 07:49 PM
The Pacers need to start driving more and stop settling for jumpers. Croshere's done that on two possessions and has been successful. Also, they'll draw more fouls.

Jermaniac
03-01-2005, 07:51 PM
Reg to the line for 3

Shade
03-01-2005, 07:52 PM
Thank God for Reggie. He is the ONLY Pacer that gets any respect from the refs.

wickedstick
03-01-2005, 07:52 PM
wow, next three home games are ugly ones.

Shade
03-01-2005, 07:53 PM
JJ's lookin' spry out there tonight. Very active. :)

wickedstick
03-01-2005, 07:54 PM
Austin is looking good tonight

Jermaniac
03-01-2005, 07:58 PM
We are looking pretty good out there with the smaller line up

wickedstick
03-01-2005, 08:01 PM
Jackson is on fire!!!

Shade
03-01-2005, 08:01 PM
Jax feelin' it. :)

Jermaniac
03-01-2005, 08:01 PM
Jack is killing it tonight

Jermaniac
03-01-2005, 08:09 PM
Down 5 at half and we get JO back fresh in the 2nd half, we can win this.

ImCrazyB
03-01-2005, 08:11 PM
If we slow the pace of the game down then we shouldn't have a problem taking the lead.

Shade
03-01-2005, 08:12 PM
This game is almost anti-climactic to me. With Dale possibly in uniform on Thursday and the impending return (?) of Ronnie, the team just feels...incomplete tonight. ;)

AJ, James, and Croshere and looked good out there.

We just need JO the rest of the half.

Jermaniac
03-01-2005, 08:18 PM
You know the way these refs having been calling the game for us maybe Stern says Ron can come back for the play offs but makes the refs call **** on us extra just so we cant make it, just a thought.

Shade
03-01-2005, 08:38 PM
BOOM BABY!

And the steal!

Shade
03-01-2005, 08:42 PM
I'm getting sick of these refs letting Fortson push everyone around.

If only Dale were back tonight... :devil:

Anyone else get the impression that the Pacers are completely outmatched and are barely hanging on just by the virtue of the Sonics playing awful? Or is it just me?

Come to think of it, every game feels like that.

Block Out!!!!!

Shade
03-01-2005, 08:48 PM
I think cutting yourself might provide you a great deal more satisfaction for you than watching the Pacers.

Nice play by Austin. He just straight took it out of Fortson's hands.

Too bad nothing came of it.

IndyToad
Give it to me

I'm really sick of Fortson's ****. Thug.

JACK IS ON FIRE

We got into the 4th with the lead and JO only with 3 fouls. We need to take care of this.

I'm still waiting for toad to explain why he watches the Pacers, and why he posts and reads here if they're so awful.

The Pacers had this game, though. 25-36 from the FT line... ugh.

SoupIsGood
03-01-2005, 09:24 PM
Well, we pissed that one away.

Mike Brown really has got to get his **** together. He was changing the finishing line-up every other minute from the 6 minute mark.

sweabs
03-01-2005, 09:26 PM
Radmonovich - what a loser. Seriously, he is just looking to pad his stats with that one. Looking for a nice contract this summer eh buddy? Pathetic. It's that kind of stuff that really bothers me.

Tinsley seems to be out for the season in my eyes, his injury is reminding me of Bender (but not to that extent). We need full healthy players to win and go on a streak to make the playoffs, and even if we do we wont go anywhere with Anthony Johnson running the point.

I swear I rather have us lost this damn game by 15 then lost it close. Now I'm mad that we pissed the lead away because we couldnt play defense, we should have won this damn game. Now we got a 4 game road trip, we need to win at least 3 of those games.

MagicRat

It's March. Of course Tinsley is out.

We lost another chance to get a hold of that 7th spot by losing tonight, looks like the Magic are trying to get us to move up in front of them but since we want to be nice we wont do it.
