    That's important. We want them to keep tweeting.

    I don't understand why both did not get fined. Especially Daye. Rookies don't miss flights and stay on the team.

    I remember Dice doing that in his first regular season game with the team and getting ejected.

    I remember that as well. I was like "Man, it didn't take long for Sheed to rub off on Dice" :D

    Just amazing. New generation, along with the selective ones, means no serious leadership and an acquiesce GM.



    Perhaps time for a serious new owner who must spend some extra money to right-the-ship.

    I don't see how the organization could fine them for the twitter comments. "Something happened and I'm mad and I'm not telling you what it was" isn't exactly subversive. If either of them had said it to a reporter there wouldn't be any issues.

    Now missing the plane, that is a fine-able offense unless the team feels there were extenuating circumstances. No one from the Pistons org has said there would be no fines for missing the flight.

    That's my bad then. A poor reading on my part, probably lead some people astray.

    I could care less about the subversive part, or even that it was done. The place to thrash this out is in-between players and the leadership levels within the club. Since it can not be developed from within this crew (go ahead and name me a leader), then the top level needs to get objectively involved. No, this will, of course, exclude Q. Remember, Q did not hire them...he is only stuck with them and perhaps, a new line of coaching (steel toes) shoes.

    I have less a reaction about missing the bus, because many have commented that when they pass a note direction to the taxi fellow, he can not understand the new art form spelling of cryptic tweeter messaging. Good thing 911 is a number, huh?

    Perhaps Q should form a new company that manufactures Cleon's spectacles and have the crew wear them for instant tweets. Message to CV: "now Charlie, it is OK to press your lovely body against that defender, but keep those dirty hands away from his body parts. The blogs are complaining about these extra gesticulations." Could someone tweet message that to him in its proper form?

    I can't understand this desperate need for writing these monosyllabic posts on twitter. All this posts look like being written by a 7 year child.
    A lot of sportsmen and coaches have their own blogs. I read some of them, the content can be quite interesting (sometimes it is a bit "politically correct", but at least there is a real content, that is interesting to read).
    If you need anonymity, create an account on livejournal "C_guess_who_V_hahaha" and write whatever you want.
