    Arrrrgggghh! That's my first thought after watching tonight's game. Why does Flip Saunders persist in being the most unimaginative coach in the league? He wears his starters down to the nub (Tayshaun 40 minutes, Sheed 39, Rip 41 and Chauncey 40), doesn't develop the bench even with one of the key reserves injured. When the Pistons go down to a bottom-feeder team like the Blazers it just hurts. I am starting my new campaign today to free Fino. Carlos played 9 minutes in the first half and he at least provides a spark but Flip just can't put up with any errors from his non-starters. Really there must be some team out there that could put Delfino to good use and appreciate his talents and not let Flip just completely ruin such an intriguing talent. I am a Piston fan for the long haul but I also want to watch my favorite player get some playing time so if you're reading this board JD please grant me my wish and trade Delfino away from his toxic coach!

    I support your campaign. Carlos played well tonight and deserves better.

    I am a supporter. I'm also a supporter of the "Free Max" campaign, and the "can we at least take a look at Blalock while hunter's down" campaign.

    Unfortuantely I don't ever see Flip changing his ways. Delfino has consistantly played well the last couple weeks and his minutes seem to be going down.

    I would like to free Amir Johnson.

    Good points on Delfno. We already know how Flip Murry plays in the post-season.
    Delfino can probably play all the same positions Murry has been playing.

    I am also a supporter. I say free the entire bench. Correct me if I am wrong but didn`t Flip say he would play his bench this year?

    Did he mean 2-5 MPG? Joe D can`t be happy with the direction of the team. I know he is a behind the scenes, hands off type guy, however, somebody needs to say something other than us!

    The Pistons did string together 8 in a row, which was nice. Losing to the Bobcats and then the Blazers at home is unacceptable.

    I can`t see the local post-game comments and reactions from the game, I would like to know what is Flip saying and is there any emotion or anger coming from him or the players after these losses and lackluster play?

    I'm sick of only hearing let the bench play. They actually do better than the starters a lot of times so they should be playing.

    I'm still waiting for the first game that features 48minutes for the starting 4. Then Dice and Nazr share their 48 minutes. But that won't happen until Flip Murray gets injured.

    This has been going on for awhile. It's incredibly tiring. Joe's hands are tied 5 different ways.

    How about some free tickets, because the effort some of these guys are giving is larceny. :ohwell:

    Has it occurred to anyone else that Flip must have some incriminating pictures of Joe or Bill?

    I can't think of any other reason Joe and Bill are putting up with Flip torpedoing the franchise.

    Just a little bit longer. There is bound to be some grumbling from the young guys. When it happens Joe is gonna need one of those number reels and a red, electronic "now serving" sign outside his office.

    shortly thereafter I hope Flip needs a "roid" cushion.

    I used to not really like Delfino for some reason, but after seeing him play recently I like the guy. He makes questionable decisions sometimes, but with more playing time I really think he can blossom.

    How many minutes would you guys want the starters playing? If each averaged around 30-35 minutes I would be content.
