    Default What reception do you give Dale?

    Pretty easy question.
    "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."

    The last option was mostly a poor joke, but I had to put something there.

    More like an easy question at a very difficult time.

    I'd expect a little from column A, a little from column B.

    Pay someone to throw a cup at him, and watch in glee as three Pistons follow him into the stands, their season going down the drain....

    i love dale...

    but i think it would be entirely appropriate to boo the ***** out of him every time u have the opportunity....for two reasons....

    one...because thats what we should be doing with any piston...

    and two, because he made the decision to leave us for them...thus its more about the decision than the actual player....

    however, when he plays his final game in conseco, u give him an ovation like u havent given many before him....

    He chose to be a Piston. So I'll choose to boo him without mercy, just like I do anyone who plays for them.
    I like your reception a little better than what I first put down. I change my answer to this question. Boo the **** out of him.

    No... those three Pistons would be held up as heroes. Indiana would have to forfeit some games and play their home games in Freedom Hall in Louisville. PS&E would be required to refund season and pkg ticket holder's money and new tix issued for Freedom Hall games would be on a first come first served basis.

    Alcohol would be banned in Conseco until further notice.

    Seriously, all of us need to get tickets to the first game that Dale is back and get to Conseco as early as possible and Booo and yell while he is warming up. I think we should all try to get together to go to a game anyway so this gives us even more of a reason.

    I'll boo him.

    But, it'd be pretty cool if the whole arena went silent, minus the drunken Piston fans...

    He lost any chance he had of an ovation with this decision.

    Dale will get an ovation, as long as he doesn't play a key role in knocking us out of the playoffs, IMO.

    If Detroit dusts off Dale for the Ind-Det series, and Dale averages 8-8 while helping Detroit to beat us in 7 games, well then....

    i just said this in the other thread, but it seems we think of dale in terms of the dale from 5 years ago....

    dale was not very effective in the playoffs....hes not at a point where hes gonna be a key in any playoff series, let alone in beating the pacers....when the playoffs come, he probably wont see the floor, as the rotations will be shortened...and since hes gonna struggle to see the floor , as it is, its highly unlikely he plays at all, let alone 8 and 8 type play...

    I don't view him as a player worthy of such emotion. He's been here twice and chose to leave twice. I'm happy that he was useful in his two stops here, just like the Pacers have been extremely useful to him, but he is not worth any significant emotional attachment when he's wearing another uniform. I would boo or cheer Dale about the same amount as I would Jalen Rose, which is to say not much at all.

    There is one option missing in the poll. Do nothing! All along, I don't think Pacer's Brass wanted Dale back, or thought that he was expendable enough to let go. I loved Dale when he was here the first time, but never really re-attched myself for the return. I think TPTB have a plan that Dale seriously wasn't involved in!

    Honestly...I will probably give him the polite "you played here before" type of clap, but I don't see when that is going to happen because you have to start for that to happen. After starting lineups...why would I clap for any Piston?

    as it is the pacers power position rotation is the following

    C- Foster, Harrison, Pollard
    PF- Oneal, Bender, Croshere

    then u throw in the fact u have the ability to play a couple of our sf's at the 4, if need be, and well....

    like i said....the loss of dale will be felt much more in other places versus on the floor....

    Same thing I did last time he left - indifference.

    Except if he's on the court during the fourth quarter of a close game for the Pistons. Then I'll be screaming like mad that we should foul him and send him to the line.

    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

    I'm not sure that would be a wise thing. Didn't Dale shoot really well from the line last year for us, and Dale seems to get better at the line when the pressure is on.
