Anyway, again, if a poster is bothering you this much (and this goes to multiple people reading this), WALK THE HELL AWAY and stop adding on to it / keeping it going. It's annoying, stupid, and worthless to keep responding to the posts you have an issue with when this is all that comes from it. Leave them be.
It's actually surprising how much better the Digest has become for me. I recommend more people do it.
Staying logged out until you wish to post has a similar effect. Anytime I wish to jump in the fray, I have to think, is it worth typing out the old username and password, and usually also typing the wrong password and going through several warning/prompt screens until I get it right? Usually, it just isn't.
Also, on the subject of Brooke's glasses - are these the same ones she wore two games ago? She had big glasses on then, and Quinn and the other guy drew attention to it in the broadcast, kind of half-teasing and half-complimenting. And then I noticed the very next game she didn't have them on. I missed this game to watch 50/50, a surprisingly good flick. But I would agree that she looked good with them on. And I'm not sure why Quinn and the other guy (I will never know his name) found it to be such a "fashion statement."
Speaking of two games ago, Quinn's reaction when he thought the other dude had addressed him as "Clark" was classic. In a deep haughty voice, CLARK IS NOT HERE.

I mostly forget about the ignore function.
Plus I always sort of figured that if people were ignored and made comments in a thread that caused discussion, NOT seeing those original comments would just be really confusing.
That, plus I like giving people the benefit of the doubt. It's just that sometimes (I've done it too) emotions get the best of people and some poorly chosen statements are made on forums.
This is one weird postgame thread...
We have beaten the Celts 2 outta 3 so far... they don't scare me in a playoff series. We are a better team than they are this season, we just had a bad game... again.
Once we start getting more games at home I'm sure we'll start putting some winning streaks together. Right now, seeing as how most of our games have been road games, I'm totally satisfied with our record.
I hate every loss and have never been one to make excuses but sometimes the ball doesn't go in the hole and you lose... tonight was one of those nights. Our spacing on the floor was terrible and the ball movement sucked. When we pass the ball instead of dribbling we are a much more potent team... however when players are out of position there aren't any passes to be made. I think that was evident early in the game with the number of turnovers in Q1. While I'm sure that Vogel makes it clear to the players where they need to be... I don't see anyone on the floor taking control of it. Which leads me to the next paragraph....
I have said it over and over again...... we must acquire a legit point guard eventually. We will never see this team play to it's full potential until we do so. It should be our #1 priority IMHO. I agree with many others on here that we need some front court help off the bench... but... the PG position is where the offense is going to start and thats going to be our achilles heel for the foreseeable future. I will admit that Collison has played well for the most part this season... but he's still at his core a mediocre 1. He seems to me to be a guy that goes out there and plays his role but doesn't take ownership of it like I want to see. The pg needs to be your quarterback... he must set the tempo, know the plays, know where everyone should be... he must enforce the coaches game plan... and maybe thats asking just a little too much from DC. We've got to get a better 1 in here sometime, the sooner the better if ya ask me.
And for whatever reason, Tyler has fallen off the map and that disappoints me greatly. WTF Tyler..!! Our bench is hurting us at this point... even the games we've won lately, the bench has still been underwhelming. We were playing much better through all four quaters when Foster was healthy... looking forward to him coming back soon. While he may not make many highlight reels... he certainly does make game changing plays with critical rebounds and smart hard fouls.
i wouldn't spend any money on a George Hill Pacers jersey... doubt if he's a long timer in Indy. I like the kids game for the most part but he's not cutting it running the point. Rather see him coming off the bench as a dedicated 2. I can see why it was 50/50 with Spurs fans when he left San Antonio.
the celtics have been doing this fairly often the past couple seasons they'll start off dead although this seasons it seems worse cause so many games so soon and so often. all those guys play themselves into shape. They'll have a great run during the middle part of this season and then have another falloff towards the end of the season is my prediction.
I totally agree about the 1. I don't come onto these post game threads and say it every night because that becomes overkill. But that's really how it ought to go. Overall, strategically, our offensive problems come back to needing a true point.
My hope is that Bird, Vogel and company understand this better than we do. But as has been noted many times, getting a decent point guard is not an easy thing. Patience, Grasshopper.
Am I miscontruing it, or did Tyler not help lead the charge in the start of the second half to nearly tie the game? And wasn't he pulled just after he totally owned Garnett on that dunk? (Talk about fearless!)
He was the inspirational leader of that run. I don't think Hibbert should have come in to replace him until the run died down.
I hope we keep George Hill. He is not elite, but he is very good. He is the kind of player that will really shine in the playoffs—clutch and great defender. I can understand not giving him $7.5 million, but let's hope we can resign him.
If we can acquire that top point guard (trading DC in the process) then I am great with Hill as the backup combo guard at the 1 and 2. That's serious depth.

The thing that got be upset was very poor pick and roll defense against Paul Pierce. Terrible execution by the Pacers, it wasn't because Pierce is so quick, it was just poor
For those of you who didn't get to watch this game, consider yourselves lucky.

Our bench sucks massive with out Foster in there. I mean it is night and day. Terrible bench play last night.
Also, on the topic of Brooke's glasses. I can't believe you people think those frames look good. They are too big for her face. The lenses are too high. Need to narrow them down a bit. Looks like she is wear old lady frames.
You can't get champagne from a garden hose.
Pierce going left is like Fred Jones going right. You don't want him going that direction. After six drives, one has to wonder if it was in the scouting report.
