    Default The miscommunication is pathetic.

    No, I'm not talking about the Pacers, but the Indianapolis star.

    Tinsley's injury keeps getting reported as one of two different things: Bruised right elbow and torn right bicep. I think I read the elbow initially, then all I've seen/heard is the bicep, and now in today's start it says (at least online) that it's a bruised elbow.

    What gives?

    I first heard that it was a torn right bicep (Star)..Just pulled out the newspaper and you're right, they now say it's a bruised elbow.

    I wonder if the Star was the first to report about those poor Miners?

    I noticed the same thing this mourning while reading the article.Who knows?

    A bruised elbow would make more sense if he is to return by Sunday's game.A torn muscle it seems he would be out much longer.

    Torn muscle is all I've ever seen. If it is now changed to an 'elbow' that is new to me.

    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    Thank goodness David Craig stepped down huh?

    Do the Pacers not have a full time staff that monitor illness or something like pneumonia?

    Maybe we just have an immature team that doesn't put quite the focus on health that you'd think they should....

    I hate to bring this up but I'm begining to wonder about the PAcer organization as a whole. After watching how the Colts are almost gestapo like in knowing how player number 53 has a problem you would think the Ps could handle 15.

    This may sound strange, but remember when Mr. Boyle was upset that Donnie didn't ask how he was doing after the Artest incident. Maybe it's not just the players not having their act together?

    I wonder sometimes exactly how good of a choice Bird really was for this position? I know that's not what you're saying right now, but as far as the front office decisions and so forth.
