    Default I'm tired of all the rumors.

    I've been surfing the Internet and reading all the rumors since the Pacer's were ousted from the playoffs, but today for whatever reason I got my fill of it. It seems to me that there are three times as many rumors floating around as usual.

    I'm thinking that's because of several things coinciding this year. Because of the European influx there's more players than usual available for the college draft. We have an expansion draft. Isiah is in New York giving all kinds of quotes to the rabid New York Press. The Laker's seem to be on the verge of breaking up. And we have two top five players, TMac and Kobe, who could be available. Plus it's all more interesting this year because the Pacer's are one of the main player's and being mentioned seemingly everywhere.

    So I for one am ready for something to happen.

    Starting with the expansion draft (in just 4 days) we have these dates to look forward to.

    June 22 . . . The expansion draft.
    June 24 . . . The college draft.
    July 1 . . . . . The new season begins. Teams can begin negotiating with free agents.
    July 14 . . . . Teams may begin signing free agents.
    August 13 . . Summer Olympics begin in Athens Greece.

    I was about to say the same exact things. It seems the rumors multiply and get more far-fetched and ridiculous as a whole.
    Can we get a new color commentator please?

    Hate to tell you Will, but figure on 2 more months of heavy rumors until FA's start signing, then scattered ones until the season starts.

    I know. Everyone waits until the last moment to get the best deal they can. Most major trades happen just before teams go to camp.

    Here's my suggestion for handling trade rumors. Create one thread for trades that are just made up by a forum member. Maintain all these in that thread. If anyone can provide a link to a published report of a trade rumor, it deserves its own thread.

    I'm sure that idea won't fly, but it's my two cents on how to manage the off-the-top-of-the-head rumors that people post without thinking them through.

    This is irrefutable evidence that there is only one solution: The consumption of several large danishes. Or castration.

    Yo - as long as it's MY kind of fishing.

    My favorite is to take the boat out, throw a line in the water SANS hook, turn a ballgame on the radio and delve into the cooler full of beer.

    Who wants to mess around with some pesky fish anyway?

    He's been gone a while, hasn't he? I guess I figured he was still busy with his fishing tourneys or something.

    Sounds about right to me. I'll go ahead and leave the hook on my line though.

    ....fellatioists....

    I wonder if that word was in this year's spelling bee.

    Can't you just see one of those little fartknockers on stage asking what the origin of that word is? And if they can use it in a sentence?

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

    Good way to lose your rod.

    Especially if one of those bass fellatoists has a hook stuck in its mouth.

    I think we'll know if McGrady is going to be a Pacer within twio weeks. most stuff in the summer occurs around the draft and then in early June.

    Free agents can't be signed until July 14th, but they can start talking July 1st and within days of July 1st it is well known who has signed where.

    I think I've seen him post a couple of times. He didn't become Bertrum Redneck did he?
