    It was on my Direct TV dish, so I saw the game.....and yep it was terrible broadcast....It was an Hawks announcer doing the play by play, but he had no partner to banter with so it sounded like a ham radio announcer. At first it appeared he was talking to someone when he was talking about how bad the Pistons were, but no one ever responded, so maybe that guy didn't have a headphone/mic combo. As the game progressed he talked about how bad the Hawks were.....but as indicated, there was just no one to answer him....

    The video was terrible and it appeared it was the inside the arena feed, that is shown on the big screen.... the replays were playing at the same time the live game was going on so you missed some plays, when the Pistons were shooting free throws, the screen was telling the crowd to make some noise and they even showed the kiss cam.

    This may be a slight over-reaction to seeing the minutes split on the box score, but here goes....

    What the hell is wrong with this organisation?!?!

    We have a bunch of mismatched players and basically untried rookies. We are out of the Playoffs. So what do we do?
    We let our interim coach do as he pleases in trying to impress for his next job, by playing the starters (minus Smith) full minutes!

    This is not even about tanking so we can make sure we keep our pick or ensure it by going for 7th worst (although this would be helpful). How about trying to play the different pieces we have and the untried rookies to better assess the state of the franchise in meaningless end of season games?!?!

    Sure KCP got minutes, but we kind of know what he can do. And Siva we know should be gone after this season. But this:
    G. DatomeDNP - COACH'S DECISION
    T. MitchellDNP - COACH'S DECISION
    is just stupid at this point of the season.

    Winning is fine in this precarious position on the edge of the danger zone, but do it while progressing, not while throwing the same pieces at the wall and knowing that they stick occasionally.

    Yes! Loyer keeps his rotation short because his interest is in winning games. He doesn't care about the future of this organization because he won't be part of it.

    Gores should tell him to play the rookies. He's meddled in just about everything else.

    We go from a clueless coach who has an agenda against winning, to a clueless coach who has an agenda against losing. Dark times in Piston land.

    HEAR HEAR!!!!
    At least TRY to not do the same damn ineffectual thing that hasn't worked!!!! TRY something else. Even if it fails because NEWS FLASH, ITS NOT WORKING RIGHT NOW!!!! Loyer, if you want a job as a head coach at least show what you can do because if you keep executing a failing game plan from an ineffectual non-entity, nobody will want you coaching their team. If all you can do is parrot Mo Cheeks, you won't go anywhere.
