Pacers: More fallout

October 12, 2006 at 6:12 pm Leave a comment

Game 1 of the Pacers preseason got lost in all the other news last night.  The Pacers won the game.  Al Harrington looked great.  Granger did well also.  So, there were some positives to take away.

Does anyone else find Donnie Walsh’s and Lary Bird’s lack of knowledge about the Club Rio incident disturbing?  I read the recap of the press conference last night, and I’m asking myself why they didn’t pull the players into the office and say, “OK guys, I want to hear your version of the story”.  If you were the President or CEO of the Pacers, wouldn’t you want the players version of the story?

Kravitz’s column this morning asks a lot of good questions, too.  I’ve often thought he was too critical of Bird and Walsh, but this time I’m landing on his side.  I think they’ve been too soft.  I’m afraid, given the long contracts of Tinsley and Jackson, that we might be the “TrailPacers” for a couple more years.  Please, please, please – Pacers prove me wrong!  I caught Pacer fever when I moved to Indy in ’92.  I’m still hopeful.  More than anything at this time though – I’m really disappointed.

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on: www.robreider.com
