I just don't like the local Indy paper bringing up the Brawl (well, at all, really) right as the new generation of Pacers is just starting to gain traction again with Joe Public in terms of positive buzz and support. It's such a downer in that sense.
Will it mean much after today? I'd like to think not. But I just find it distasteful as someone who wants to see the franchise do well and be supported.
