    Well if he doesn't get this job here real soon, I can imagine that he'll get several more interviews by other teams very shortly. Other teams really took notice of how good of a job he did when he got his chance this season. I think the Pacers are taking him for granted.

    Okay. Quit screwing around with your little arguments Bird and Simon. Time to make a decision, move forward with the future of the franchise and lock Vogel up for a few years.

    We wouldn't let him go to job interviews if we had planned on bringing him back.

    We have no way of stopping him, he is a free agent right now and he needs to secure a job.

    If the team has no intention of keeping him I can live with this (I guess) but if they let him slip away because Bird & Simon are playing tag with each other I will be mightily p!ssed.

    Tomorrow's Friday and that's when the official meeting between Bird and Simon is supposed to be held.

    Hopefully things are effectively done especially giving Vogel an extension.

    This meeting with Houston doesn't mean anything. I'm sure Houston knows that Vogel is more than likely returning to be our coach, but were just interested to hear what he had to say.

    I hope we make a complete overhaul. I like Vogel but if keepng him means keeping Bird and ultimately standing pat, no thanks.

    Keeping Vogel won't impact that.

    Vogel is pretty much the opposite of what Bird saw and liked for 4 years in O'Brien.

    I just want something to get done by tomorrow whether it's extending Vogel or Bird making up his mind on his future.

    I hope we bring in Kevin Pritchard to the FO whether he replaces Bird or Morway. I like his willingness to take risks and bring in talent to make his team better. With all this cap space, he's gonna be in heaven.

    extending Vogel before the lockout to me is stupid just kind of a waste of money if we are locked out.

    Is his salary prorated? If it's not prorated, then it won't matter if we extend him before or after the lockout.

    But I think if we get a new president of basketball operations, they will want to hire a coach that they like rather than keep the one we already have.

    If they're aware of what Vogel's done for the team which I hope they're aware, then he'd be brought back. The players like him.

    I guess he'd bring in who he wants, but after the display in the playoffs and ever since taking over, any GM/President would keep him.

    It would suck if Bird is back and doesn't hire the guy that saved his job.

    I am going to be pretty pissed if we let someone else snag Coach Vogel and we twiddle our thumbs.

    The last half of this season and our postseason showed us that he *IS* the man for *THIS* team. Are there more experienced people we could bring in? Of course.

    But I am firmly convinced that Coach Vogel is the perfect fit for our organization and young team.

    We need to get this **** DONE. NOW!

    Buck's addressed this issue numerous times, but you have to have a coach in place during the lockout for a variety of reasons.

    Am I the only one who's first thought was "good for Frank"?

    So, do we get to break out the torches and pitchforks and march on the Fieldhouse if Bird and Simon dilly-dally around and Frank gets scooped up because of it?

    The front page of IndyStar.com is making this a pretty big deal.

    Vogel pretty much flat out stated this is where he wants to coach. This is where his family is situated and he loves the players and the organization and the players love playing for him.

    The issue with the FO is they wait a while.

    I'm not counting on anything being a big deal with Houston however. They probably just wanted to hear what he had to say.

    Now if he gets a second interview, I might be concerned with that.

    Thank God tomorrow's Friday and lets make up our minds.

    The Rockets have interviewed something like a dozen guys. This is going to be a long, long process of dwindling down candidates for them. Bird said Frank gets the first and last interview. Bird and Simon are meeting tomorrow.

    We're not losing out on Coach Frank because Bird and Simon are screwing around. Chill out. I like him a lot and want him back but some of you are acting like he's Red Auerbach or something.

    Right on melli. I hope he gets the job to be honest. That way I feel better about going in a different direction. I hope the negotiating between Bird and Simon is over quickly. They both seem to be agreeable and rational men. Some may disagree.

    Bird makes this franchise a better franchise. His talent evaluations have helped us tremendously. And his iconic "Legend", doesn't hurt. Anything we can do to bring more attention to the Pacers, the better. Our franchise needs it. We need to become a profitable franchise through this new CBA and team growth. With the rumblings of moving franchises around more easily, I would hate for our small market to be a target. Let Indiana keep its basketball.

    Why do you guys keep saying Bird & Simon are going to meet on "Friday" when it's not happening until Tuesday!?

    Pacers president Larry Bird will fly to California to meet with owner Herb Simon on Tuesday.

    Simon has said he wants Bird to return, but Bird is looking to resolve some financial and personnel issues.
