    I was back on DetNews today checking out an article. The Facebook comments always intrigue me. Are our fans really that bad? It's like they hate the team even when they do something right. OR...is it just that the negative fans are just vocal on the articles?

    I think it's probably Pareto's law, that the worst 20% of fans make 80% of the posts.

    I am so proud of this forum, because even when we're cynical, insulting and bitter, we're still able to do it with humor and community spirit.

    100% Agreed. I've never believed that fans shouldn't be critical (especially when the team is bad), but the other side of the fence seems to want to end every sentence with, "The Pistons just suck and will never win anything, so forget it."

    I actually had to go in and provide statistical information to back up the article writer because some guy decided that it was preposterous to suggest that Will Bynum was in any way similar to Vinnie Johnson.

    I hope clueless coach doesn't try to play Pareto as small forward. He is a power forward, period.

    I lost all respect for Pareto after he let his defensive coordinator get away with child molestation.

    So, simply inserting Bynum for Jennings results in winning basketball?
