    I don't think you understand the word "helped"

    "Ron helped initiate a riot."

    Is factually true.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    JO is no duncan, he isn't suddenly going to be a difference maker.

    no artest=NO WIN

    he was your only real hope against the pistons, now he is out..and the fact jackson is also still missing. Pistons should still win by double fiqures.

    oh and JO won't be back..you are crazy if you think stern is going to let a freaking arbitator run his league.

    You are so right, he has already given the key to the Pistons.

    I'm just glad we get JO back sooner. I really think he is the key to any success we can hope for this year, not Ron.

    Besides, who is to say getting Artest back would turn out to be a good thing? There is such a thing as team chemistry and we really don't know that it would be a net positive for him to return this year. Sitting for an entire season may be exactly what he needs.


    I'm equally excited to get JO back sooner AND not have to worry about what Ron is going to do next, and when.

    Jay, revisionist history is seldom proven on factual incorrectness, it is the leaving out of matters without which nothing would have occurred that matter.

    And helping still (unless preceeded by the word "involuntary") shows something that is done on purpose with a goal, not on a domino effect.

    Would we have said that Ron refused to help incite a riot had he not reacted?

    Fact and fact, how amazing language can be, but then you work with contracts, you should know

    Pistons_fan, you have no right to be boasting. Your team has it's entire roster intact, and they are still playing poorly. Predicting double digit win for your team against anyone right now, is not a safe bet.

    Second place is okay, as long as they play Kenny Loggins at the game and Reggie hits a 3!!!

    Great! If your kicks are revionist history.

    Mine is the truth.

    See, different angle but try it, might be a whole new experience.

    (now if you had left the "helped initiate a riot" out of there, you might have had an argument, but I guess you to saw it lacked strength so you had to strengthen it. A bit like Stern did with his mass-media manipulation.
    So you're saying that if Ron hadn't gone into the stands there would have been a riot anyway?

    There's a real world - right now you're not living in it.

    That is better than contending for a title, only to be shot in the foot by a player who can't take the pressure.

    Whatever. (Actually, if Chuck Person or Jalen Rose hit the three I'd probably agree )

    You know just as well as I do that when the pressure is on, Ron hurts the Pacers far more than he helps them. I'm just willing to admit it to his supporters.

    You could say we were screwed this year either way, and I'd agree. Ron either hurts our chances with his presence or with his absence. But either way, Ron hurts our chances.

    Relax, dude. IF JO is able to play against the Pistons, he will make an impact, that is for sure, but the IF at the beginning of the sentence is the qualifier...

    Well put me down in the "disappointed" category. I thought that the arbitrator would be more likely to jule for Artest/Jax, since they were off-court.

    The disturbing thing is that it looks as if he says he [/b]did have jurisdiction[/b] but agreed with the suspensions. Must be a compromise, or Kaplan did not feel that he had enough power to reduce them. He likely thought he was on shaky legal ground and tried to throw the union a bone, without making Stern mad enough to fight it.

    JOneal7, sometimes I think you give a real bad idea of what Pacers fans are like.

    Honestly, calm down- Pistons_fan is just trying to start trouble, and you're doing exactly what he came here to see.

    Uhh sorry ?? is that the one.... OK i will drop the funny remarks.

    No I was saying that he riot had already started and was initiated by other people.

    more explicitely: Fans were being hyped up by a certain player and his friends and family
    It was then that the riot started when the "public" started throwing things on the court and towards the players.
    Culiminating in a Cup hitting a player, what happened then was an outcome of riotous behaviour.

    we look down at bad teams but win the games that are against good teams and the pistons will be motivated to face the pacers, purely because of what happened at the palace.either way, pistons always start slow and turn it on..which is what will happen soon enough.

    Telling him to calm down, and then sliding that in there is not very effective.

    .
    It's certainly possible. Once the first cup flew, others very well could have followed if security did not respond quickly. Then things could have really gotten out of control.

    I don't believe that, but it's possible.

    It's tough to figure out the exact cause of a riot. I started one once, I should know. :-) Well, not quite a riot, I guess. It was mostly harmless, but it did spread over several blocks and the police did break it up. Snowballs had already escallated to bottle rockets, friendly snowballs tossed in fun to ice balls tossed with malice. It certainly could have kept going.
