    Default So um, Jack isn't whining about being on the Bench

    Wasn't it a favorite criticism by Jack haters that he belongs on the Bench but would never tolerate it.

    Come on guys admit it, you were wrong. He cares more about winning than starting.

    Didn't see the start of the game. But he still came off the bench for 5 games, and no probs.

    I'm gonna need a link. I don't remember that being said by the forum at large. A couple guys, sure. But not the majority.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    What kind of link is going to show it as forum wide, a poll. It would take dozens of links to prove something like this as being forum wide.

    And did I ever even say it was forum wide, no i said it was a common bash of Jack. Primarily its a few people that bash jack consistently. With most of the board make snide comments here and there.

    You know, I'm a Jack supporter too, but you keep trying to make others eat crow, yet you blindly bash Jermaine no matter what happens. If you're going to dish it out, learn to take it too.

    Yeah, a dozen seems excessive.

    Find me half a dozen, then you can talk.

    I always said that Jack could be an effective bench player, but might not like it. I'm glad that he puts winning ahead of starting.

    Hicks, where did you get that pic of Dave Grohl? That is awesome!

    I've been pretty pleased by everyone's attitude thus far. Depsite the inconsistent play, their demeanor has been a nice change over the past two seasons. I don't feel like I'm watching a funeral anymore. Yeah, I would like a little more passion, particularly early in the games, but it's progress nonetheless.

    I saw it while browsing this Foo Fighter's forum:

    I just cropped it down to what it is.

    I'm a big anti-Jack poster on here, but so far, I have very little to complain about. He's stopped yelling at refs, he's stopped taking a bunch of stupid shots, and he has had no problems coming off the bench. He's in a bit of a shooting slump, but I think that can be attributed to his wrist, and he'll come out of that.

    While I'd rather have him traded still, it's more because we need a pure, CONSISTENT, shooter than because of the usual knocks on him. Jack has really shown something this year, and I think even his harshest critics (myself included) have to face up to the fact that he is playing very well this year, and not being a pain in the neck.

    So far it's Jack: 1, haters: 0.
