    I had a customer in my bar last night explain that last years playoffs really got him watching the Pacers again. I never thought this meant I had a great chance to criticize him because he hadn't met the loyalty criteria necessary to root for a winning team. I simply thought, "sweet" everyones watching the Pacers again. woohoo.

    This is fun. Let's enjoy it while it lasts.
    Exactly. There's still plenty of room on the bandwagon, Indianapolis. Hop on board now, and get a good seat.

    We've been saying this for years.

    Of course, that's not ALL DRose can do. He's also pretty good at remembering when he's disrespected.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    LOL @ Rose. Maybe he should try to drive to the hoop with the intent of making the shot instead of relying on a bailout call. I'll be there, wearing gold swagger and blue collar. Hopefully since it's an early Wednesday night game, not as much black and red will be there. Hopefully some make the trip though, I love to see Bulls' fans cry.

    It's also wrong, in my experience. Tons of friends an acquaintances that otherwise don't give a crap about the NBA are texting and calling me and making Facebook posts about how awesome Paul George is. Hell, this morning there was one from a girl that probably doesn't even know what a basketball is asking "so is this Paul George guy single?"
    Ditto,
    Today at work I had 3 ladies come talk to me about the Pacers and how they are undefeated. This team is over the hump. There is still a ways to go to get back to the love the city had during the Reggie era, but it's happening.

    NO MAN! There shouldn't be "a ways to go" damnit, the team has been in playoffs 3 times in a row with the last one being 1 game away from the Finals! I don't understand Indianapolis/Indiana..the team proved themselves already, why are the people not in love by now? This is Andrew Luck's second year and fans were all in..out early in the playoffs! If I lived in Indy, I'd be PROUD to not only have the #1 Ranked team in the AFC North but also the #1 Ranked only-undefeated team in NBA

    The Colts are in the AFC South. I don't know what you people want. Government shutdowns for every Pacers home game I guess.

    Do you appreciate just how badly the Pacers destroyed their brand from 2004-2010? Meanwhile, the NFL team across the street was going on a phenomenal run of success with one of the greatest players ever that included a Super Bowl championship.

    The Pacers have made a TREMENDOUS gain in local popularity over the last couple of seasons, particularly in the last year. Let's just appreciate that the community is embracing them again. Both the team and the local support have come a long way over the last three seasons.

    Seriously, I wish people who don't live here would stop chiming in on this. The support from the city and state is fine. We all have jobs, families, lives. There are 41 home pacer games a year, many of them taking place at 7pm on week days and some of them often during months with terrible weather.

    The Colts play 8 home games a year typically on Sundays or very occasionally a Monday or Thursday night. It's a lot easier to get to those games.

    If you don't live here please stop saying how you "don't understand Indianapolis/Indiana". Because the truth is what you mean to say is you just don't know. It's really easy to say "If I lived there I'd go to every game!" and kudos you may do exactly that, but not everyone will and that doesn't mean we have bad fans.

    EDIT: And now since you've opened this pet peeve for me, you have to realize this, Indiana isn't that big of a state. Yet we manage and have managed to support, two major pro sports franchises for 30 years while being within throwing distance of one of the biggest fan base sucks in professional sports, that is Chicago. We also while doing that support, three very major colleges (you're welcome Purdue fans ) all with pretty decently established sporting histories. We also support Final Fours, Big Ten Tournaments, Big Ten championships, motor racing, swimming and lots of other events and we do it while stealing it from huge cities and states with much larger population bases. Our Super Bowl is widely regarded as one of the best ever and not just because of the game, but because the city kicked *** and took names for a whole 7-10 days and put on a ****ing show the likes of which New York (New Jersey) will try to replicate and probably fail.

    There are maybe two places in the entire country that can compete with Indy/Indiana for supporting lots of sports, Boston and Chicago IMO.

    Are you serious?

    Excuses? First of all you're talking to a season ticket holder. So I try to go to as many games as I can, but guess what sometimes I can't. **** happens, things come up, you get stuck at work, your girlfriend bothers you into doing something else, life happens.

    Man, this post pisses me off so much I don't even have the time to respond to it in full detail.

    Also, I hope everyone sees the irony of a guy who has username referencing Reggie and has Reggie in their avatar not understanding how the team lost support in the mid 2000s.

    I'm seriously not trying to be a prick. You support the Pacers, the Brewers, the Buccaneers, and Syracuse. Have you been to a game for ANY of those teams?

    Honestly the fact that the Pacers and Colts have established fan bases at all being in shouting distance of the Jordan Bulls and Chicago Bears is amazing in and of itself. Not to even mention IU, Purdue and Notre Dame.

    YES, YES, YES, AND YES! I'm not a bandwagoner.

    When I mention support, it didn't nesscessarily mean going to every game. I'm talking seeing people wearing fan gear, water cooler talk, where it was definitely evident that the city has the team back like the Colts. That's all I'm saying. I STILL feel like the city is

    Colts>>IU>>>>Pacers and that's sad, how can you have a COLLEGE outrank a GREAT professional basketball team?

    You've already said you don't live in Indy. So, and I mean this with all due respect, you really don't know what the **** you're talking about.

    Walk around downtown for even 5 minutes these days and you will see someone with Pacers gear on. Wear Pacers gear out and the reaction will be overwhelmingly positive.

    I'm glad you FEEL like the city is Colts>>IU>>>>Pacers, but the fact is you really don't ****ing know, because you don't live here.

    Yeah baby!

    Have an 11 game package, balcony, above Area 55, but no Bulls tix.

    Cooked dinner to help me convince the wife to let me buy tix. Just bought Krieg level for 2.

    Dinner was that good.

    And since I was born and raised in Chicago, I expect to see some of my clown relatives.

    I consider myself a die hard fan, and I am one of the people who cannot attend tonights game. I have a family, job, and just life keeps from attending every game. I attend 3-4 game a year with my son and or my whole family. I feel that is more than enough to be considered a die hard fan. I do watch every game and I am on pacersdigest at least 6 or 7 times a day. You don't have to be a season ticket holder to be a die hard fan. That is the biggest crock out there. I not only don't have the money to go to evey game, but I like to spend time at home with family and enjoy the games that way too.
    By the way I consider myself a die hard Colts fan and I haven't been to a game since 2009.
