I count the ABA as remember going to Nassau , Long Island Colosseum for 

 

1. Many a great Concert.

2. 2nd fight between  George Foreman  & Frazier & he corners him and wow just wow what a knockout punch, No Brains like Ali to win , Just like Peyton the smartest QB

 

3, Think was still ABA when Denver Nuggets were destroing the NY Nets in early 4th quarter plaoffs anf Dr. J , Julius Erving went absolutlly nuts taking over the game and nets won, the 2 fans in front of me were from Denver too

 

Yeah they had a lot of great players in the ABA including Doc but unfortunately the general media never mentions the ABA when talking about Championships. The Pacers won 3 back then but because it wasn't the NBA a lot of people don't count them.

It was. I was too young to remember the ABA. I roughly started watching sports in the late 70's as a kid and grew up in the 80's with Bird and Magic. I know the history of the ABA though and some of those players went from the ABA to the NBA. Pacers played top tier competition so it is ashame a lot of the media don't recognize our Championships.

They were great and fun to watch Brent can back that up. At the time they were as good as anyone in the NBA .

I have said this before, but The Pacers beat the Oscar/Lew Alcindor Bucke in a game...champion vs champion

Note:  Sorry I got off topic, but fun stuff.

I have stated this in a bunch of posts, but I want the Panthers to win because I want Manning remembered more as a Colt and I don't want the narrative that the Broncos put a team around Manning while the Colts didn't.

Thanks for elaborating on this. I don't view it as Denver put a better roster together for Manning than INDY did. More like Jim Irsay released 18 & he still wanted to play ball. It's not Peyton who wanted to leave. Why would I resent the Broncos for signing him, agreeing that he can still win games in this league, & giving him a Championship caliber defense? 

 

It's not a team rivalry thing; It's a thanks for taking such good care of a treasured commodity in Peyton with Tennessee roots, Hoosier roots, & Colorado connections that will never diminish or perish. JMO.

Elway is the president of the Broncos. He was the original crybaby that got his way when he held out and refused to play for the Colt. He set the precedent. Therefore I have always, and always will hate the Broncos. Indy fans don't remember this , and don't care.  That's fine, but I say go Panthers .

    • The risk is of opportunity cost, not of losing that money. The risk is that we have now made our bet with the LT position and we are missing on more safe options, so if he doesn't recover or recovers and is not the same, we are very likely left with sub-par performance at LT for the year...     
    • He should have been like "...and my source said ... and I quote 'Look...'"  
    • As you likely know,  the 2021 schedule is revealed Wednesday Night...   5/12...   8p your time...   5p my time...     These are things I always look for as soon as I see the schedule.   In no particular order....   1.    Do we start at home, or on the road?   Typically, you close your season with the opposite.       2.    Marquee games?    National Games?    Are we on the big stage at all?    Anything beyond the dreaded Thursday night games which most every team gets stuck with and hates!     Ugh.  The worst.   3.   Bye week?    When does it happen?    I prefer late October to Early November.   Something close to the middle of the season.    We got lucky once having the bye week in week 4.    That was Luck's rookie year.    The early break allowed Chuck Pagano and his wife to see a doctor and caught his leukemia early enough to save him.    Otherwise, I hate the early bye week.   I prefer weeks 7-10.   4.   Hardest stretch of the schedule.   Easiest part of the schedule.   Knowing full well that what the schedule might seem like in May, might be totally different by the time that part of the season comes.   5.    Potential bad weather games.    So, this year,  we play Buffalo, Baltimore, Dolphins and Jags on the road.   Games in September likely means hot and humid.   Games in the northern cities in December likely means cold and even possible snow.   6.    Anything out of the ordinary?    Some years, one team gets screwed and has to play 3 consecutive games on the road.    I think it has most recently happened to SF and Seattle,  and those teams already put on a lot of miles traveling from the West Coast.   Did I leave out anything?     Is there something you look for and I didn't mention it?    Let us know!   The 2021 season gets REAL Wednesday Night!
