    I just had to post the write up from last nights game, and the last sentence from the article talks about Larrys reasoning for not bringing drummond back in in the 4th....wait for it....wait for it....He liked the way Max was playing defence. This is steering our ship? and in another article he says that despite the exact same record as last year after 27 games we are making progress. Ummm? last year they had the strike and shortened practice to fall on for the horrible start, but our supposed leaders were a year older and we had a great summer camp this year, and we have the exact same record and thats progress? anybody?

    We just aren't making shots and the other teams are. This unlucky streak will end in a few years.

    On the pre-game interview on the satellite radio feed, Larry indicated that last year we were out of games before the 4th quarter started...the progress he refers to now is that we are not out of it until the last two minutes of the game.....:crossed:

    So, we either need shorter games or a taller coach.

    I'd suggest that nobody let Larry handle their retirement investments.

    There are some things I would like to see coach Larry do differently. We need to see Kenny, Middleton and TRG get some playing time. Who cares if we might lose an extra game somewhere down the line...we don't need to see Corey Maggette taking pt from th youngsters anymore. Also, I think he should have worn that elf costume instead of Stuckey.

    After going 4 for 14 in his last game, Middleton went 3 for 16 in his Fort Wayne game today. English shot 7 for 12 with 15 points as the Mad Antz got pummelled 97-81 by the Canton Charge.

    Middleton might be tired out from all the traveling. Plus the pressure of playing in the shadow of the Pro Football Hall of Fame might have overwhelmed him.

    Larry Tidbits sounds like a derisive nickname for Coach Frank.

    Is it good to name your team after an offensive foul? Why not the Canton Hacks?

    I would gladly take both of those shooting percentages over the ones being put up by the other options

    Those percentages are against the Canton Charge, not against the Spurs.

    I bet if you divide their production in half you will see what their equivalent NBA production would be.

    Actually, if you divide a number by half, it is the same as muliplying it by two.

    I didn't say divide it by half. I said divide it in half. But thanks for the math lesson, Professor. :)
