Them Cheese Lickers

How about them cheese lickers ain't  they free?  Drool, slop, slobber, lickin' that Brie.
Lickin' them Swiss cheeses, lickin' them Blue.  Lickin'  that Cheddar eatin' that Richelieu.
Look at them cheese lickers ain't they gung ho?  Lickin' them cheese slices with their tungu-e-o.
Them lolly goggle cheese lickers don't they rate?  Lickin' them cheese pieces on that plate.
How to be a cheese licker?  Don't need a ticket.  Get a cheese or two, juice up and lick it.

Nice poem Fennis, but the part about that whole story that made my stomach turn is she was a old ass cheese licker.

If SVG is all the coach he says he is, he'll prepare Drummond to expand his game the right way, develop into the teams max player (when his contract comes up), and take his rightful place as the teams leader when the Pistons have all their ducks lined up...top tier PG, SG, and SF, not just "get to the playoffs" level players, but top tier players that fit Drummonds game. For all you Josh Smith haters, we'll probably have replaced him with a younger, more dynamic, version of himself by the time Drummond takes over also.

First off Pee Boy, it's alright to refer to me by name and not tip-toe around who you're knocking, like something soft...man up and put a name to who you're damning! This is not the first such episode and I'm puzzled with your behavior.

I'm going to suggest that you think things all the way through and read the posts completely before jumping in with some left field comments, like you just did...sublimely you just made a case for the outstanding coaching abilities of Mo Cheeks and John Loyer...coaches who led us to another 29 win season with superior talent than what we had the year before! They made some dumb-ass decisions as far as player deployment goes and stuck to those decisions, even when they could plainly see there was some glaring weaknesses in late game efforts. Drummond didn't have to start in order for him to post the numbers he did; where do you get that sh!t that starting is some magical station that gave him the natural athletic abilities he demonstrated, but if he didn't start he couldn't have did what he did? Have you ever considered that starting our two veteran big men, in their natural positions, with Singler starting in his natural position, also, with Drummonds second year contributions off the bench, we may have been a more effective team in the long run? Gores certainly did and it appears SVG is getting around to implementing a rotation like that...wait and see what happens if we resign Monroe.


So does it make sense to have Drummond coming off the bench? Yes!

But will it happen? I don't think so! The Drummond starting train is likely already left the station, and we probably can't pull it back!
 
-Oracle

Oracle, my brother, we're talking about a coach who's winning record is a reflection of his decisions and selling of what's best for the team, not what's popular with the fans or catering to the whims of a player; in addition to Drummonds exceptional athleticism, he's shown a consistently mature quality, that's been diva free...I believe he'd be on board with whatever SVG thought his role should be, in serving the best interest of the team and his personal development as a player.

You want to hear crazy from me Pee Boy? What about trading Monroe, Smith, Singler and KCP to New Orleans for Anthony Davis? I know it ain't got a snowballs chance of happening, but it's a thought I have and fodder for your criticisms. Oh, a whispered shout out to Lemon...y'all have a good day.

This Is The Dumbshit I'm Talking About

Post  WTF on Sun Jun 08, 2014 8:50 am

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A cook at a New Mexico facility that trains state corrections employees faces battery charges after authorities say she secretly licked sandwiches then served them to probation and parole officers.

KOAT-TV reports Yolanda Arguello was charged last week following witness interviews into the bizarre allegations at the South Valley New Mexico Women’s Recovery Academy in Albuquerque.

According to a criminal complaint, witnesses told investigators that the 59-year-old would take a piece of cheese, lick it and put it on sandwiches at the academy. Another witness told authorities Arguello was seen sucking on an ice cube and putting it back into a cup before handing it to a staff member.

She is charged with three counts of battery on a peace officer.

It was unknown if she had an attorney.

Why in the hell is she licking sandwiches  facepalm

We forced and backed an International Law to protect American Soldiers!

We banned torture... it's a freaking CRIME!!! We made it that way!

So why can't we prosecute Gitmo Prisoners? Why will we eventually have to let the guilty skate?

Because CRIMINALS don't prosecute CRIMINALS!

Now don't get me twisted! I worked in the defense industry! I know and believe that when the lives of Americans are at stake, I don't really give a sh!t what the law is, saving lives comes first!

The difference between the people I worked with in defense and the general public is that we do what we have to, but we also accept the punishment when the sh!t hits the fan! It goes with the job, and low level people are there to give the political types cover when things have to be done that the law doesn't allow... that's life in the big city when you're working for your country!

I was too low level to ever be in a position to catch the heat, but I've seen bosses that went down, locked out of their office and escorted out of the facility in cuffs! It's funny when you're a young pup engineer, but as you get more experienced, you recognize the load those dudes bore for gutless politicians!

So why can't we prosecute these guys? I found this on twitter!

Yeah !!!!!!
What he said.
For the most part our rebounding edge and any control of the paint we enjoyed consistently went out the window when Dre headed to the bench.

My guts say's if we're keeping all three Andre will likely be the one to come off the bench.  Lets not act as if Moose and Josh are so, so rebounders out there but Andre can have the same effect coming off the bench playing the same amount of minutes until his offense gets up to speed. I know SVG will stress defense and lets face it Andre wasn't the best rim protector and defender out on the court at no time people.  SVG still knows you need points as much as you need defensive effort and offensively both Josh and Moose should start at PF and center because they are reliable post options though I would trust either 15 feet out.   So until Andre develops a offensive post game and improve his rim protection he's best suited to come off the bench.  

It's entirely reasonable and possible that Drummond comes off the bench and still gets 30+ minutes to do his thing!

Wise, I think you have something there, and others, including myself have said it in the past as well, but it bears repeating!

Of ALL the bigs, Drummond has by far the most primitive game! He's still a couple of years away from being a good defender and producer, while Moose & Josh both have mature games!

Josh is #1 with both an impressive offensive & defensive game if used correctly, and Moose has an even better offensive game, and while his defense is sadly poor, it could be passable if he was coached better and used in the right matchups(center).

So does it make sense to have Drummond coming off the bench? Yes!

But will it happen? I don't think so! The Drummond starting train is likely already left the station, and we probably can't pull it back!

With the 38th Pick of 2014 NBA Draft ...

Post  Sebastian on Sat Jun 07, 2014 11:12 am

SVG should draft Patric Young 6'10" (probably more like 6'9"), Center out of the University of Florida. Young is a full grown man, 22.3 years old and has been coached by one of the best college coaches ing the NCAA, Billy Donovan. The dude even graduated, if I am not mistaken. Young could be the second coming of Big Ben and would be a great answer at back-up minutes and maybe even sharing the floor with Dre.

Drafting Young would also create a great opportunity move Moose in a sign-and-trade deal to that will help to balance OUR roster.

There's a New Pimp in Town

Post  Sebastian on Sat Jun 07, 2014 10:38 am

SVG has released 'Sheed, as an Assistant and want even think twice about signing the team option on Chauncey's $2.5 million and there has been no cry of a separation of Pistons lore from the Detroit press/blogs/twitter. (Note: There probably has been some outcry, but I can't read everything.)

Call me crazy, but this Pimp is smart, SVG has been overly superlative in his description of B. Jennings, Moose, and Josh's games with the recent comments that he has stated. Possibly setting up for future trades that will bring back commodities to OUR roster.

But, this is why I like this guy, because he is a talker. Joe would only have annual press conferences and even the rare interviews that he had when he was rolling back in the mid-naughts (circa 2003-2007) were controlled and rehearsed.

I wish that SVG would have kept 'Sheed, though. 'Sheed was beginning an important relationship (as mentor) to Dre Drummond. Note to SVG: Rethink that one big fella!

And, Chaunce doesn't deserve to earn another dime as a NBA player. Note to SVG: Move Chaunce up to a meaningful position. Chaunce was running things, when WE were rolling in the mid-naughts and like the old folks say, "you don't never forget your pass".

SVG is the Palace Pimp.

More Josh But Vince Ellis Is An Asshole

Post  WTF on Sat Jun 07, 2014 10:15 am

I don’t think that’s fair. I don’t think that’s fair,” the new president of basketball operations and coach said Wednesday, twice for emphasis. “One of the things that happens — and not just to media and fans, it happens on a team — is when things don’t go well, everybody loves a scapegoat. The reason you love a scapegoat is it takes responsibility off of you, so coaches can look for them, too. It takes responsibility off of you.

“It’s not fair or even close or fair to pin last year on Josh or any one other guy. That team, in a lot of ways, did not put into the game what needs to be put into the game to be successful.”

Van Gundy has a point. The Pistons were four years into their streak of missing the playoffs before Smith arrived last summer. With the Hawks, Smith was one of the best players on an annual playoff team.

But as the highest-paid player on the Pistons, Smith is going to draw arrows — especially when he is benched multiple times and fans groan when he keeps shooting three-pointers.

However, a new coach offers a new slate. Van Gundy said he traveled to Atlanta last week to have lunch with Smith.

“I thought it was a great conversation. Josh is a smart guy. He knows what it takes to win in this league,” Van Gundy said. “He’s capable of doing all those things. We talked about a lot of things in terms of his game, what he thinks his strengths are, where I see it going and the whole thing, and I came away very encouraged that Josh is enthusiastic about the year and excited to get going.”

Van Gundy realizes Smith is potentially the best two-way player on the roster. And if he isn’t moved in the off-season, he will seek to use those talents.

Vince Ellis is so full of sh!t because he was right along with everyone else in scapegoating Josh and actually calling him a failure that lead to Joe being fired, now he wants to get on the SVG Suck Jock Bandwagon by taking some phony neutral position like he wasn't one of many that called Josh out. Hey Fu@k You Vince Ellis.

Meantime I feel better about my defending Josh because SVG is saying all the things I've said this season in defending Josh. If Josh is put in a position to play to his strengths and start at PF, I make this prediction now that he will make the All Star team for the first time in his career as a Pistons.

Sheed

Post  Sparma on Sat Jun 07, 2014 12:52 am

I'm a big Sheed fan -- even though he may have cost us a championship with his defensive lapse against Big Bob and had some genuine misbehavior along the way -- so I'd love to see him work his way up the coaching ladder. Don't think it will happen though, because of his reputation. I get the impression SVG might go without a big man coach, as much as he's praised Brendon Malone's work with big man. I think SVG should have honored the good thing Sheed had going with AD and retained him. If he lands in GR, I'd be happy about that.

The Big 3

Post  deusXango on Sat Jun 07, 2014 12:51 am

IMHO Drummond was elevated to a starting role prematurely and that accounted for the failure of the Big 3 more than anything else; his defense is nowhere near what his athleticism calls for and his knowledge of the game hasn't matured yet...all things considered, I don't think it was in the teams best interest to play Monroe and Smith out of position for the majority of the season, just to accommodate starting Drummond.

For all you Josh Smith haters, we'll probably have replaced him with a younger, more dynamic, version of himself by the time Drummond takes over also.

Having "lost" our lottery pick this year, it makes all the sense in the world to hold onto Monroe and not trade Smith. If SVG is looking for shooters, why not look in his own backyard? Datome got a sh!tty deal last year, but coming out fresh, we may not need to overpay for Parsons or Hayward because of what we find he can bring to the team. That $12-13 million fans on other sites like to project giving these guys could be put to better use.

I think I said this before long ago on Pistons talk so I'll say it again to the few here.

Where the heck did you get an "E"?  Is that still one of the letter grades you can get in Michigan? - Sparma

I got that E back in 1978 or 79  I believe.  I have that paper and report card still somewhere in a box.  I think it's F's now but I'm not sure if the E is still used.

BTW I don't think there been a better song written and song than "Imagine" by Lennon most religious sectors and politicians hated the song I loved enjoy the Beatles "All You Need Is Love and Stevie Wonders "Love In Need" I played these three songs during a speech I gave on compassion a few months ago.

People Don't Want To Know Whats Going On But They Should

Post  WTF on Fri Jun 06, 2014 11:36 pm

Don, it's because they find the ongoing bickering between the major political parties, and the glorification of the gay/lib movement to be more news worthy. We enter dangerous territory when we start examining who controls the mass media and to what ends. - DX

DX, its because everything is meant as a distraction not just the news but all everything damn near on television is meant as a distraction. The more technologically we become the more dumber people seemed to get, they play on people low self esteem and their attraction to ignorance.

As I said if love and compassion was inserted into all our decision making this world would be a better place. No division, no racism, no hatred, no greed, no wars.

I think I said this before long ago on Pistons talk so I'll say it again to the few here. I love each and everyone of you, your families, your friends because humanity requires it, common sense dictates it, and God demands it and I'm compelled to by the compassion I have in my heart. Yeah that includes you too Sour Pee Boy  lol. Personally I don't know anyone that post here but man I wake up loving the world, I my not like it but I love it and that includes the people in it.

Deus, I'm going to accept your challenge to pass along true knowledge, even though I'm sure the world isn't ready for this: pursuing the classification of tomatoes as fruit in conversation with my son, I learned that cucumbers and green beans also technically are fruit (cucumbers are the fruit of the cucumber plant).

Wise, I'm with you on John Lennon.  Imagine!  But I have to disagree with you on one point: humans are animals.  And don't underestimate the capacity for altruism among non-human animals.  The biologist Frans de Waal has genuine knowledge to impart on that topic.

What were we saying about the Pistons?

I have always been of the idea that we are born with the capacity to love and show compassion some researchers believe we all have that gene but if it's not nurtured it dies.

Like I said I was never much of a conformist and been more of a free thinker and opened to everything. Wrote a school paper on Science Versus Religion and got a Big Fat E because my teacher a fanatic Christian found it offensive and eventually after my moms complained another teacher was assigned to grade it the funny thing in all this was that my mom was just as committed to her own Christian faith but respected the opinions of others.

I do believe in a higher being but I also believe the earth is older than religion would have us believe and that some form of evolution existed. With the original intent and purpose of religion it was a good thing initial because the whole purpose was for it to help facilitate compassion and our purpose in life was to be facilitators of compassion as well. I don't subscribe to current religious beliefs be they've all seem to have forgotten compassion nor do I subscribe to Darwin theories either.

What I do believe is that love can cure all that ails us in the world and so did many others like Lennon, MLK, Dalia Lama, Gandhi, and many others if we just subscribe to the idea of compassion. We aren't animals, we aren't born to be greedy and, self serving individuals these are things we a taught, and we don't have to be this way and there can be peace on earth if we stop trying to impose our beliefs on others and practice compassion through random acts of kindness, paying our successes forward and real charity. It really doesn't matter what we believe, how we worship, what race we are, what are financial status is or what of politics we stand, we don't even have to like each other but as long as we're all doing the right things and respecting each other then all the right things are done.

I simply don't believe a person is less human than the next unless they're from Mars and has green tits, 1 eye and 4 ears. That thinking is the reason why Blacks and Indians been treated like sh!t.
