    Default Internet questions for the gathering

    As you know we are getting together this weekend to plot to take over the world. With that in mind we know that several of you will not be able to be there due to circumstances, conditions and living on the other side of the world.

    With that in mind, this is your chance to still participate.

    In this thread write down whatever questions you would like us to address and God willing and NaptownSeth limiting his diatribes to under 20 min. per we will try and get to them.

    We will also attempt to address the questions here either during or after the gathering.

    Do you suspect a consensus at your gathering? You going to vote on answers? Looking for things to argue about?

    I'll play.

    1. Who'll be the first prospective starter to lose his time? I'll vote Bog.
    2. Will the guy be replaced because he isn't cutting it, or because a sub is excelling? I'll go with the latter.
    3. What will our biggest weakness be this year....assuming we play our best guys then it's Interior defense. With the projected lineup: defense in general as well as rebounding.
    4. Will we keep Thad? Until the deadline.
    5. Are there any bright spots? We've collected some young hungry talent. There is a reasonable chance that somebody surprises us.

    1. Which newcomer are you most excited about, and why?
    2. Which newcomer are you least excited about and why?
    3. Who (if anyone) makes "the leap" this year. Could be a player or coach.
    4. Who will be our biggest disappointment. Again, player or coach?
    5. Are Cdash and Ace Anderson truly one entity?
    6. Perferred team identity/playing style? Who excels in that style, who struggles?
    7. Favorite Pacer memory?
    8. If you could be a fan of any other franchise outside of the B&G, what franchise and why?
    9. Is Nuntius secretly a Bucks fan who's been trolling us all along?
    10. How'd you feel when Paul said he wanted to leave Indy

    Which protocol assigns IP address to the client connected in the internet?
    What is your perception of the import of the increasing dominance of a handful of application protocols—simplification? ossification?
    Are we happy with the state of internet service providers and the way they conduct their business?
    This is the darkest timeline.

    To be acceptable all answers must contain a brief description of the results and impact of the last bandwidth auction.

    That threw me at first then I looked at Peck's thread title again

    Ok, some Pacer questions.
    1. Myles Turner - franchise player or not?
    2. GR3 - he's RFA after this year. What's a fair contract for him?
    3. Same question for CoJo - UFA after this year, how much are we going to pay?

    Stanko gold comes out about as often as the McRib is around, don't know what either actually is but I love em.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    This question is void because you required to be present.

    What's the OVER / UNDER for the # of 3pt Shot Attempts that Myles is going to take per game this season? ( I think he will be taking more this season due to the lack of 3pt threats on this Team and preference to spread the floor )
    Will Sabonis start next to Myles by the end of the season in the Frontcourt?

    Will Joe Young be able to play out his contract?
    Also going to steal one of Ace's, because it's a question I wanted to ask: If you weren't a fan of the Pacers, what team would you choose and why?

    When the Pacers are losing 12 or more in a row will the pacers start showing Dale Davis highlights to try and calm Peck down?








    edit: this would also work on me

    I am not sure if T-bird will be there but my question will be how should Sabonis be used offensively especially if he is playing behind Thaddues Young and along side big AL. Also T-bird made mention of this in the past but what advantages do left handers have how does this impact certain plays. So for instance where should he get the ball and what moves in the post make him more efficient.

    I don't know who started this rumor, but it's a common misconception around these parts. The truth is I don't know anyone, including myself.
