    Remember the last time that we hadn't heard a peep from Joe D was during the time when Carlisle was eventually replaced by Larry Brown and again, when LB was replaced by the Flipper.

    Joe D's silence always seem to represent that something is on the horizon.

    I remember being on the DetNews forum and we were all wondering why Joe hadn't said anything since our loss(es).

    I for one feel that something is brewing up in the palace rafters.

    Yeah, I noticed that too. It seems with Flip going public and saying he feels confident about keeping his job, yet no confirmation of his job was indicated by Joe D is a sign something is up.

    Can anyone confirm that Flip had a dental appt when he left the practice facility without speaking to reporters? Someone told me that offline and I am sure it would have been posted here if it was in the news.

    Who the hell schedules a dental appt on what may have been a game day, and how is that more important than the exit interviews? That's why I think I am getting bad intel.

    Joe is scheduled to give a radio interview on WDFN, Monday around 3:30 in the afternoon.


    I will endeavour to record it.

    I still don't think he'll say much. Probably will talk about evaluating what they have, looking for what is available, planning for draft, just generic stuff.

    I agree. I think he will talk a lot, he just won't say much. Joe generally does not telegraph his moves.

    Mind you, the lead interviewer, Mike Stone, doesn't pull many punches or softball. He's gunna go right after the Flip question, the trade question etc.

    But again, Joe probably isn't going to show his hand.

    Does anyone else find it odd that JVG has disappeared from the coaching candidate carousel? I mean, the guy is a very good coach. Jobs are starting to fill up without his name being mentioned.

    He's good, not great. He hasn't had much playoff success. Maybe teams that have young players don't want to come up with $$$ to pay someone like him.

    I find it even more odd that Terry Porter is no longer the leading candidate for the Sacramento job. He is no longer a candidate at all.

    I've always thought JVC looked like this guy:
    Vincent Schiavelli

    Come to think of it, has anyone actually seen the 2 of them in the same room at the same time? Hmmm....
