    Default (Public) Who do you definitely NOT want to return next year?

    Sorry, the old one was set to PRIVATE.

    This goes along with the poll from Will Galen, and a comparison of the two should be very interesting.

    In this poll, only select those you want to be gone no matter what.

    You're still on my **** list after that vote.

    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

    Nice voting btown.....

    I don't know why, but I can't find one player out of that list that I absolutely DO NOT want back here next season. I'll wait until after tonights game to vote. I'd rather see the team just get rid of some guys than to say I want them gone. I guess I just like something about everybody on the team. Or maybe it's just been to long in between games, and one of those guys just needs to light a fire under my a$$

    I know who I WANT on te team though

    I really like the guy and think he has been a true professional, but it's time Austin found a home somewhere. I don't blame him for the big contract and hopefully his value has finally hit a peak being in the last year. With Pollard and Reg coming off the books I hope this sets the Pacers up to at least be looking at different options instead insisting they're strapped.

    Just a reminder.....AC will make over 9.5 million next year.

    Who the **** voted for Granger?


    Edit: Nevermind.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Isn't this going give you the exact opposite of the poll we had yesterday?

    Let me guess.....SJax and Tinsley are gonna lead this poll.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I can live with any single player coming back. I can even live with Bird and O'Neil. But changes have to be made, to improve balance and chemistry.

    [edit] I'll tell you who I definitely do not want to return. Fat Bowser!!!!!!!!!!!

    You might get your wish! On the 2006 Pacers Medallion Collection under Bowser's bio, it says his weight varies so maybe he'll go back to the way he was last year.

    Well, now that I think about it, I really didn't care for Thin Bowser, either.

    , Basically you want to take it back to '91-'00 when it was just Boomer.

    Wow, just noticed that I was barely older than him!

    I hope not, because that means everyone will be disappointed in the actual team situation next year.

    The expectation would be that some players are "on the fence" players - players people don't "love" enough to demand that they stay but don't "hate" enough to demand that they go.

    These players are role players or end of bench players that can either stay for depth reasons, go as a throw-in to make salaries match, or (if one of them should be a big money player with an expiring contract, maybe) could be the catalyst for a deal that gets us below the cap.

    It's data worth having.

    Tinsley and Jackson. I don't mind Gill. He is paid insignificantly compared to all other players and he's just the 4th PG. I don't have something against him or his play really. Can't say I would really miss him on the team if he weren't resigned, but I wouldn't mind him beying resigned as long as its just one or two years and for just a small amount (for NBA players).

    If Donnie Walsh cans everybody in the whole Pacers organization, I guess he and btown can lounge around in the team offices in their PJs.

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    I thought about doing a poll yesterday and asking this very question. Never got around to it though. Glad you did it!

    As for who I absolutely want gone, only Tinsel. I think him being in and out of the lineup is the major reason the Pacers continue to be up and down so much. Point guard is the most important position on the floor the way Carlisle wants his offense to run. The Pacers don't have any continually with Tinsel. That's why we played better with AJ even though he's not as good as Tinsel.

    I think if Carlisle would have played Sarunas at point and had AJ backing up both 1 and 2 we would have played even better.

    I think we need a New coach and Jackson just ticks me off for the most part. He needs to just get while the getting is still good.

    Yeah, I agree with Jay! You made little sense in wanting everyone gone but Walsh. It boarders on . . . no, here I have to call a spade a spade. It's dumb to definitely want to get rid of everyone but the top guy. I want to hear your reasoning.

    If you are getting rid of your coaches I see no reason in the world you wouldn't want to keep Danny Gee! He's a rookie with a good attitude and gobs of potential. I know you aren't that dumb, so what's your reasoning?

    We need a new starting backcourt, so Tins and Jax have to go.

    With a new backcourt, 6 more months of distance from the taint of Ron-Ron, and hopefully a healthy offseason for our players, we should give Carlisle the last year of his contract to show what he's capable of.

    Just for the record...

    I was only offended by Btown's inclusion of the Rifleman in his "Gone" list. Now, there are two more of you that have included the honorable Mr.

    erson:.

    If your reasoning is to "get rid of the entire coaching staff", then okay, let Chuck go back to the front office (preferably as an apprentice to become Mr. Bird's replacement someday soon.)

    But if your reasoning is something else;

    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

    Chuck is the reason I became a P's fan back in 1991 against LB back in the first round against the Celtics. 38 point game followed by 39, and then the one three from the "suburbs" as I believe called by Marvelous Albert. Remember that 3?

    I want to apologize, in particular to Will Galen, for anyone having taken anything I've ever done, and this thread is a prime example, and attempted to extract logic, reason, or any sign of mental stability from the decision. I didn't mean to waste that much time of anyone's life, and hope in the future that my posts, votes, or comments will once again be dismissed as the rantings of a drunken lunatic with very little grasp on the reality that surrounds him.
