    Default I'd like to thank our crowd tonight...

    for being collective IDIOTS!!$

    How STUPID can you be to chant "Detroit Sucks"! With 8 minutes left in an 11 point game???!?!?!! HOW STUPID IS THAT!??!?!?!

    That woke them RIGHT BACK UP and gave us this cardiac express. I'm completely disgusted with that stupidity.

    As soon as I heard them saying that, I was like what idiots, all that is going to do is fire the Pistons up even more.

    And yet we still won. Gotta hate that if you're Detroit.

    Everybody that went to the game got their money's worth tonight.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I got my money's worth tonight. Booed the hell out of Stern. But that "Detroit sucks" chant was classless and stupid. Hicks is right.

    It was as intelligent as Knick fans and their "Reggie Sucks" chant.

    I attended the game and would like to say that it was only a small section of idiots probably around section 20. Once I heard them saying "Detroit Sucks", I thought it was soooo dumb since there was still 8 minutes left.

    However I would like to add that the crowd was amazing all nite. The best moment was at half time when David Stern walked across the court twice and got booed more than the Pistons during the intros.

    I don't think the chant had anything to do what-so-ever when the Pistons comeback.

    I'm pretty sure what started the DETROIT SUCKS chant was in one of the lower sections, there was a Detroit fan pretty well dressed up walking back to his seat. Like the snowball effect, Pacer fans started chanting it to that guy, but it spread throughout the arena.

    I couldn't quite figure out why it started - glad you cleared that up.

    It didn't really get going - a few people in my section went with it but not many.

    That's different, that is effecting one guy. How does a very short chant effect about 7 guys. I just don't see it. When I heard it I thought they were talking about the city.

    I heard it loud and clear for almost a minute on WB4. If the Pistons push to go from 11 down to 1 up didn't start then, it was damn close.

    They're a pretty firey group. Wouldn't surprise me at all if it fired them up. Especially the Wallaces.

    "[Insert team name] sucks!" should always be reserved during exit.

    Side note: I remember in 2000 game 2 vs NY, we chanted "New York sucks!" when we left. That was fun.

    So your saying if the crowd does not do the chant the Pistons don't come back?


    I just don't see the cause and effect

    No the Pistons got back into this game because the Pacers went back to the dump it into someone and stand arround and watch offense.

    Pistons got back into the game since we decided to go one on one and started isolating......

    The "Detroit Sucks" chant, I do believe, started in Section 225. I sat in Section 226, and I could see the guys in the top row up there doing it. Then it started gathering some momentum.

    It happend more than once during the course of the game.

    I can understand the chant, and why it happend. A lot of people have had pent up emotions towards Detroit, and Stern, and tonight they were able to finally release what they've been feeling for quite some time.

    But yeah, they got back into the game because we were getting away from what we were doing that caused us to get the lead in the first place.

    Put it this way, I still liken it to Knick fans w/ Reggie. If they don't chant, does that mean Reggie doesn't torch them? No, but it sure as hell ain't smart, is it? It's tempting fate, and I bet it gave them, if even a little, some extra umph.

    I fully agree with anyone that says the main reason was the Pacers horrid offense, and easing up a bit defensively; see my other thread about all of that. I just think this gave the Pistons even more fuel.

    I heard it over in '204', but not that loudly. Certainly classless, but if it started as a response to an equally (or moreso) classless Detroit fan I wouldn't be surprised at all.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
