    Default Jim Rome Just Slammed the Pacers Organization

    basically just said what horrible job Donnie Walsh and Larry Bird are doing at scouting out players.

    Not trying to be rude to you, but does anyone care what Jim Rome says? I don't think he has a clue what Donnie or Larry know. It's easy to say what is right and wrong after all the facts. Donnie has done a great job over the years. The fact that Rome even questions him makes you wonder. I can't say this about Larry, he hasn't exactly proven to have a good track record. Is this his fault or not I don't know and I highly doubt Rome does.

    If Jasikevicius is his only barometer, then yeah, he's right.

    But otherwise, I have no idea where he gets his opinion from.

    That Jermaine O'Neal kid Donnie traded a bona-fide center for sure was a bust. [/sarcasm]

    He wasn't talking about basketball scouting, he was ripping the off-court antics. He called us the Bengals of the NBA. Ripped on Ron-Ron, Jack, Tinsley and Daniels.

    eh, I suppose it's not worth a post, mainly just ticks me off that everyone on ESPN loves kicking us while we're down. Not to mention we're the league's official whipping boy's when stern wants to stroke his ego we're usually the front runners in people he'll bring the hammer down on.

    Donnie Walsh - runs a professional basketball team
    Jim Rome - runs his mouth on television

    Who would you rather have?

    Isn't Jim Rome that same guy that had an all out blast against the Colts, right before the playoffs; even guaranteeing that they wouldn't get to the Superbowl? Jim Rome doesn't know anymore about sports then the average fast talking New Yorker down at Mel's. Him and Steve A. Smith REALLY REALLY **** me off, on all levels in any sport. The both of them make me literally physically ill when they talk about boxing because THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT. ESPN needs to get rid of both of these schmucks.

    He said Larry and Donnie need to scout out who they're bringing onto the team a little bit better maybe a simple questionairre like "if someone throws a berr mug at you would you feel compelled to go into stands, do you occasion feel the need to go to strip clubs and squeeze of a couple rounds for a gun,...blah blah blah blah"

    Rome is like , but louder and with a national podium.

    Plus he wears makeup.
    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!

    That's actually a little bit funny.

    But just a little bit.

    Jim Rome has always annoyed me. My jaw dropped when I saw he had his own show on TV.

    Same. It's simply 30 minutes of negativity. The whole show's premise is built around overblown criticism and rants. Plus, as has been mentioned earlier, he knows essentially nothing about sports anyway.

    I guess there's a big market out there right now for illogical, egotistical loudmouths who know much less about sports than they profess to.

    I thought it was hilarious whenever he would






























    pause on his radio show just like that. I would keep thinking my radio was broke or I lost the signal...

    OK, that is the final straw. I'm never going to another Pacers game.

    Would be easier to make fun of Rome (which is generally pretty easy) if he wasn't right.

    The Bengals had what...10 of 55 or so players arrested. We're working on 6 out of 30-35 players over 3 years getting involved with the cops if you count JO's punch and Jimmy Snap Hunter being around at Rio. Not to mention Jack, Tinsley and Marquis having multiple run ins.

    What cracks me up about him is this....He is real big on his callers not "reading" their "takes." However, if you listen to his radio show and then his TV show, he will repeat his rants from the radio word for word.

    Yes, Rome's uncanny knack for stating the obvious astounds me. I should set my watch to his wisdom.

    Exactly. Dude is annoying as hell. And the way he talks is even worse. Dude takes a short pause after every word he says.

    He also had Roger Lodge from Blind Date as one of his round panel dudes or whatever the hell he calls them. Thats should tell you all you need to know about his sports show. Roger Lodge. HA

    Even Bill Shanter in his infinite annoyingness doesn't deserve that comparison.
