Even though I was most definitely provoked, my comments were still uncalled for. I'm not even sure where I got the racist thing, i'm pretty sure I was looking for a different word and just posted that. Most of what I posted that night wasn't well thought out or reviewed, by any means.
I've felt like for a long time no one cared to hear what I had to say because it didn't coincide with their own beliefs, but now I am aware it has more to do with the manner in which I present my topics most of the time.
I will never like Jermaine, never really have never will. But i've probably posted enough hate on Jermaine threads, so I don't think that will be necessary anymore.
But I do still think everyone here lets him off the hook a little too easily. I mean his demeanor while we were beatin the Pistons, especially near the end of the game....was just flat out unacceptable to me. He is supposed to be a leader, but his pouting seemed more obvious to me, than the numerous times Tinsley has been called out for it.
Anyhow, not to open that can of worms, but that is why I posted that thread about Jermaine. What it turned into....well I would of never posted it had I known.
Anyhow, my racists comments were most definetely unjust and I can see how that warranted a ban. I look back at that thread and laugh at how fast I become totally irrational and posting stuff about my GPA.
I really have no one to blame but myself, in regards to most peoples perception of me. Regardless, I've been coming to these forums everyday for close to 2 years now because it is a great place to talk basketball.
My opinions on this board and in real life are generally different. Sometimes, people don't react very well to that....and in turn I do the same thing. I promise from here on out not to be so hard on the Pacers, but you people have to understand.....i live and die with the Pacers. When they lose...I AM CRUSHED. So they've been losing a lot lately and I'm not used to it, it is an adjustment for all of us and I am not handling it well.
I was going to make this a lot longer, but I think i've at least gotten my point across. My racist accusations had absolutely no foundation and I apologize. Understand I don't like Jermaine and I hope you can all just agree to disagree with me about that.
