    Default GAME REQUEST FOR PACERS PR

    Hi all,

    I have a humble request. Every arena has some kind of signature music or theme at times they play. Where I am going with this is for the Pacers it is the "race cars." I noticed during the NO Pelicans game there was some funky NO' jazz jive .. not sure what it was, I think it was during 3rd qtr. I am sure each stadium has their own "signature" themes. The Pacers have several.

    One I must give KUDOS to is the DRUMS. Old school awesome atmosphere creatation. my request is this.

    Pacers are a lock down solid fundamental basketball sound principally pound it down low and back outside hard nosed team. this is only a humble request.

    the indy race cars are awesome. but for me and I noticed this in game 3 of ECF vs heat I believe it speeds up the tempo. I don't like that for the pacers while on OFFENSE. being that the blue and gold are a tuff nosed team. prefer more THUNDER from the indy race cars when the pacers are playing DEFENSE.

    why does pacers PR not play the indy race car thunder on DEFENSE. speed up the offense of other teams. maybe that doesn't work vs heat. but I feel our teams STRENGTH is DEFENSE. its our anchor. I want our D symbolizing thunderous indy race car fast DEFENSE vs the opposing teams.

    essentially... humbly requesting the "INDY RACE CARS" be played while pacers are on defense not offense. and play em loud!!!

    thanks yall !! PD rocks.


    * edit, in no way am I being critical. just feel like speed is not conducive to our offense. we are methodical band it down low. not the run and gun lakers or whoever. our speeeeed is DEFENSE.


    Great to see so few Bulls fans in the Fieldhouse. GO PACERS!!

    No can do. NBA will not allow it. Hasn't since the 94 playoffs.

    That sucks. the hornets were playing some jazz voodoo funk while we were playing offense. Glad Stern is gone.

    Wait what? I feel like we were using the racecar sounds as recently as the early 00's. Am I really misremembering it that badly?

    Also, why exactly did the league make them stop. Is it a marketing thing?

    I've heard the race cars on offense fairly recently. And I swear back in the day I heard them on defense.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    The NBA will allow us to do it on offense, which has been done in recent years. Defensively, however, the league has forbidden it. Thank the 1994 Knicks for that IIRC.

    As was said, NBA no longer allows sounds to be played during defense. The loophole is that certain live things (and "pump up" sounds like the "De-Fense" chant) ARE allowed. That's what (to me) makes the drum corps so important nowadays - they can pretty much do whatever they want. Well, until one of the Big Teams moans that it distracts them when they play us, I guess.
