    I thought that on TV it looked about somewhere between 80/20 & 70/30 (in Pacers favor)... I didn't think it was near as bad as I was afraid it would be.

    You will never see 20% or more Pacers fans in another city. You'd probably never see 10%.

    Gotta give the Bulls fans credit. It's a commitment to drive 150+ miles to see a game.

    The Pacers really gave it to the Bulls fans tonight.

    Definitely way more Pacers at this game than the IND/CHI meetings at the Fieldhouse in the regular season.

    I can't imagine how deafening it was at the Fieldhouse, but I barely heard Chris and Quinn it was so loud.

    I don't give them ****. Most of those ****ers are bandwagon fans that live in Indy or go to IU or Purdue.

    The OP exaggerated--it was like 80/20 or 75/25 Pacer fans. Before the game I agree though it looked worse.

    No they really arent I talked to a lot of Bulls fans from Chicago tonight. One said he wanted to go to the UC but tickets were $800 for lower level he paid $100 here much much cheaper.

    The Fieldhouse was so loud, the Pacers fans were like the Thunder fans.

    I'm sure some are, but Bulls fans follow the team to most regional arenas.

    You think Conseco was bad? You should've seen the Chicago vs. Milwaukee games in the Bradley Center in Milwaukee this season. The Bulls/Bucks fan ratio there was embarrassing.

    I'd seriously say there were more Bulls fans than Bucks fans at the Bradley Center this season.

    There seemed to be more Pacers fans during the regular season meetings, but tonight there were obviously way more Pacers fans.

    Oh, well you talking to six people proves me wrong. In my book, you are just as bad. You like the Bears and Cubs.

    Edit: I'm extraordinarily pissed off so take anything I say with a grain of salt. Most of it isn't rational.

    I'm a White Sox and I'll admit Chicago fans are animals.

    It's what you get in the major cities.

    When I lived in NY, fans pretty much demanded they had things owed to them.

    I was there. Seemed about 70/30 Pacers fans. We rocked the place. I'm told that came across on TV. Did I hear correctly?

    Hell yes.

    I was barely able to hear Chris and Quinn.

    I was really impressed with how loud the place got and that the Bulls fans were pretty much on mute. I was happy with how many Pacers were there compared to Bulls fans. Much better than it was during the season.

    CFH sounded like the OKC Arena tonight.

    To think the Fieldhouse seemed like the most quietest arenas in the league, but definitely not tonight.

    I'm honestly not sure I ever heard Grady over the PA tonight, but I was in a very pro-Pacer part of the Fieldhouse. Hell I barely noticed the drumline being there. My throat hurts like hell, I feel partially sick to my stomach and pissed about the outcome, but I think the fans brought it tonight.

    It wasn't 70% Bulls fans. I would guess 25%, 30% tops. But they made moe noise per person than the pacers fans. So the crowd noise might have been close to 50/50

    Sure sounded way louder on TV for the Pacers than Bulls.

    I guess it depended on where you were sitting.

    If it was behind the Bulls bench, which seemed like their little club then it probably seemed loud.

    The Pacers fans did a great job keeping the Bulls fan quiet with all the boos when Rose went to the FT line and hearing constant chants for defense.

    I would say 40% bulls fans some had Cubs Bears and Blackhawk gear on. Others were wearing white hard to tell.

    Eric Gordon is a Pacer fan he stood up when they said all Pacer fans stand

    No way were there 30% or even 25% Bulls fans, at least not in the lower level. There was a truckload of Bulls fans in Section 6, but otherwise, they were mostly scattered from what I can tell. I think I only counted 5 Bulls fans in Sec. 18. They were fairly reserved. Can't go by the red shirts alone. Someone in our section said they forgot not to wear a red shirt when they went to work today but was clearly a Pacers fan.

    Are you insane? The crowd noise was not even close to 50/50. You heard the Bulls fans, but our fans were much louder...and I was surrounded by Bulls fans up in my corner of the balcony.

    I didn't see anyone with Cubs, Bears, or Blackhawks gear on. A lot of red. Rose shirts/jerseys and Jordan jerseys everywhere. I saw one dude with White Sox stuff on though.

    What tended to happen is when the bulls fans got loud, Pacers fans would boo so then it got really loud

    I saw a few cubs bears and blawhawks jerseys not a ton. But I also saw a lot of people with just generic shirts on who seemed to not have a rooting interest.

    It seemed a lot worse in the early going it wasn't that bad but it was still annoying I hope whoever we face next year in the playoffs that they don't live about 2 hours away from us.
