A lot of you keep asking why things look a little different on the website. This video explains it all.
My opposite strategy.
Haha nice work 🙂 hopefully it brings us the same luck!
Lol!!! Wow thats cute. U know what in that case i wish the Pistons lose 2morrow!!! PISTONS SUCK!!! LOL. Hopefully this works cuz i can not recall me ever saying this.
haha, i love sienfeld, its good to laugh,i dont think i have all day. i too will do everything opposite from my regular gameday rutine. no betting, no listening to the intros on my ipod 5 times, and im wearing a completly un piston, unbasketball related shirt. its gotta work, right?
I can’t decide! Should I wear my Jersey inside out? Should I NOT wear my jersey? Should I cheer for the Cavs? Someone HELP me with my opposite strategy please?!?!
That’s a great episode of Seinfeld. I just wanted another good one, “The Rye” today. I love the last part where George reels in a marble rye with a fishing pole from a window. Too funny.
“My name is George. I’m unemployed and I live with my parents.”
I LOVE what ‘Sheed had to say to about the refs! GIVE ‘EM HELL, ‘SHEED!
Lynette, i am going to wear my sheed’s jersey in inside out so i can reverse the funk they are in.

I don’t think I’ve seen that video before. THANKS FOR THE LINK!
Whatever happened to Eminem? lol Has he been to any of the games or does he wait for the Finals? Hmm… I think he needs to release a new single that is Detroit related to play at the Palace to get people pumped.
I’d write one and record it but I think it’s more effective coming from a known rapper from the D than a white girl from Gratiot County… lol
amanda u’r from graciot county?! dude sweet so am i!
My favorite TV show and team on one site :)……Thanks Natalie. Go Pistons!
WE BELIIVE THAT THE PIISTONS WIILL WIIN THE SERIIES YESSSIIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!! GO PIISTONS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!BEAT CLEVELAND!!!!!!!!!!

isnt eminem retired ?? i think he finished up with mr shady
butttt that videos on point!! it shows their greatest shots and best memories anddd it clearly states that NOBODY SHOULD BE MESSIN WITH DETROIT!!!!

Really, tara? We are so cool! Where at in the GC?? lol I’m from Ithaca. Yeah, that’s right. I-Town. Represent! lol
Natalie this is why I love this blog and I love the forum… you always entertain us whether we win or lose!
I love this game… and love the people that love the game!
I can’t believe I haven’t seen this clip of seinfeld haha
I was eating while watching it and I couldn’t help but laugh so hard that i almost choked!
I guess me and george have a lot in common excluding the baldhead but hell we got two things in common!
lol I must say this kind of superstition is wierd and might not work. In the Pistons case I hope it does!
I shaved off my winter beard. Hopefully that’s enough ;D
I am glad to see everyone is getting into the spirit of things….
my heart is beating really fast and we still have like 7 hours. omgggggggggggggggggggggg im gonna cry this is crazyyyyyy
stones better pull it off. i hate lebron so much! ahhhhhh
IT’S TIME to make fools of haters demonstrate your will to win IT’S TIME to repeat history you’ve done this once, now do it again
IT’S TIME to intimadate and dominate remind all the ‘Ship belongs to you IT’S TIME to let your true colors shine and reveal your blood runs red and blue
IT’S TIME to prove to your fans why we should keep the faith alive IT’S TIME to show another star that 1 cannot beat 5
IT’S TIME to display resiliency with your backs against the wall IT’S TIME to do what you do play that DEEE-TROOOIIIT! BAAA-SKET-BAAALL!!
What’s this in Dime Smack on Foxsports about the Pistons in-fighting? I hope it’s not true otherwise they have turned into the 2004 Lakers.
I hate to be doom & gloom, but the media is already pushing for a Spurs/Cavs Finals to avoid “boring” because the “King” will bring excitement.Sorry, that’s just shit basketball and I will be watching the French & British Open instead.
HERE’S MY OPPOSITES ENERGY i SPELLED MY NAME BACKWARD ALL DAY YESTERDAY, SO HERE IT IS AGAIN……..ENILEUQCAJ, good luck, SNOTSIP!!!!!!!!
AMANDAAA…DAMN MADD PROPSSS TO YOU FOR THAT EFFORT, U GOT SOME SKILLS
THE NICKNAME EMINEM(m&m) IS ALREADY TAKE SO I’LL JUST CALL U SKITTLES LOL
Way to step it up AMANDA!
guyssss dont hate on lebron just cuz he beat us.
he’s a great player u gotta give it to him
we just need to take him and his team on tonight and actually PLAY this time than just sit there.
come on baller, 6 hours to the most important game in 2006–2007 campaign and you say that, gimme a break. Hate him, despise him, crush him, beat him, whatever…
I won´t give him ANYTHING.
i really want the pistons to win to prove to all the haters and doubters that detroit basketball is where its at.
im pulling out the extreme here you guys, usually when im not watching the pistons play best. so im not gonna watch the game at all.
like on thursday, they had a steady lead in the beginning and i wasnt watching until a little bit before half time. then they started losing. and then they lost.
so yep. i will not watch. maybe it will help them.
lol ya amanda!! it’s sweet, we’re awesome!! i can’t believe i havnt met such an avid pistons fan yet!! well that makes two of us!! haha, well i’ll be home tonite, so the both of us can represent GC from home 🙂 haha!!
DEE TROIT BASKETBALL
LOL, guess what the guys at Yahoo Sports are ranking the upcoming draft picks:
Yi Jianlian, PF, China. Frontcourt depth is a need. Comparison: Rasheed Wallace. LOL! only 1 Sheed.
Lebron is now a mindless marketing product and he allows them to do so as long as he makes the money and gets the glory. He “could” have been so special if he could think with his own brain.
Sorry, for Sports Purists like me, the NBA is garbage. But the Pistons will always hold a special place in my heart.
davi alexander, u got me wrong, i meant gotta give him props for what he did in game 5, not give him game 6.
but u’re right, no excuses i dont care if we have make lebron and his fans cry like dirk tonight we need to win this game no matter what.
i want to see the pistons play their best defence out there and give it all they got.
PISTONS VS. SPURS IN FINALS
PISTONS GONNA TAKE IT ALL THIS YEAR
“IT’S TIME to show another star that 1 cannot beat 5″
^^thats definitely my favorite line in your poem amanda! superstars on teams make me soo mad when they dont even ATTEMPT to include the rest of their team in the game .. AKA MR LEBRON JAMES who was basically the only one who scored from the cavs in both over times and his teammates just watched…
i LOVEEE that we are an ACTUAL TEAM and i wouldnt trade not ONE of our players for ANY ONE of the superstars inthe league.. not even AI who i think is THEEE finest man alive [ besides chauncey&&rip :] ] ha
PISTONS FANS !! MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION !!!!
ok i have two things to say ..
first of all im watching pretty ricky on tv right now ..and anytime PRETTY RICKY AND PISTONS are associated.. only good things can come !!!
second of all PLEASEEEE watch these two videos to get you pumped and into the spirit .. i swear watching these two videos made me feel sooo much better about tonight !!!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLE5P-HHDn4&NR=1^this one got me teary-eyed at the end
http://youtube.com/watch?v=WcyaDAhafEA^^this one just made me feel like “DONT F*** WITH THE PISTONS !!!”
please watch, enjoy, and cheer for the pistons
WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS, MY FRIENDAND WE’LL KEEP ON FIGHTING TILL THE END !!!
i bleed red white&bluelets go pistons, time to show everyone up!
I trust u Natalie. I’ll wear LeBron Jersey in front of the TV while the broadcast. And I trust Pistons too.Let’s show them the color!!
TIORTEEEEEEEEED LLAAAABTEKSAB ~~
lol Skittles…that’s great. I could go for some Skittles right now…
Still over 4 hours ’til gametime and my stomach is in knots. I think our boys like to drive their fans crazy. 2 years in a row against the same damn team. They better bring their “A” game ’cause anything less than DEE-TROIT BASKETBALL in unacceptable. Time to make “King” LeBron sweat under that robe and slip right off his throne.
Hey Natalie… of course we are getting into the spirit of things… Man, this is the pistons we talking about thats my life right there. I live to watch them play… after that horrible loss I was so upset that I didn’t sleep until 11 a.m. (PST)… I woke up at 7pm, went to the basketball courts and played some rough b-ball on both ends offense and defense… and I twisted my ankle badly… NOw I can’t walk properlly, and the only thing i can do is watch the pistons play i just hope they keep it alive to san antonio series because i don’t want to sit home for a week and be bored to death!
you dont have to do this but i was just thinking.. well first off im a very superstitious person when it comes to sports, and i tend to notice weird “things” during winning streaks and weird “things” during losing streaks or a period of poor playing.. welll i also visit your site everday and i have a suggestion .. i think that you should not post a bulletin for us to comment in and just leave us this “opposite strategy” bulletin to post in.. for some reason it seems on game days when you leave for the game and not post a new bulletin for us to post in [ we just use the last one ] .. it seems the pistons do great/blowout.. haha now you definitely dont have to do this at all.. its just a suggestion and another weird “thing” ive noticed..haha i told you i was superstitious
p.s sweet stuff that you wrote up there amanda
TIORTEEEEEEEEED LLAAAABTEKSABemit ot og ot krow!
I have a great strategy.I’m going to put my measly $100 bet for the CAVS moneyline tonight with my friend’s bookie and then go TOUT on the Gambling Forums on how great Bron Bron is and how great the Cavs team will play tonight. That should JINX the crap out of that shitty team.
I have the worst luck gambling.But for my Pistons, what is $100 plus juice? How’s that for a REVERSE jinx….LOL
did anyone read thishttp://dimemag.com/2007/06/02/detroit-drama/#more-413
omg this has been the worst 2 days of my life. i cannot live like this. THE PISTONS CANNOT LOSE=[ i’ve been so depressed. they are my life. nothing can change that.
i want a guarensheeed.
FINALLY!!! I HAVE PROOF THAT ZYDRUNAS ILGAUSKAS IS DIFFERENTLY ABLED!!http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/sp/getty/65/fullj.getty-74165834mh016_detroit_pisto_9_30_09_pm.jpg
“(anonymous 4:14)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLE5P-HHDn4&NR=1^this one got me teary-eyed at the end”
i actually cried at the end when he said “Its happened! you did it detroit.. you BELIEVED!”
i want the pistons to play with that energy again and for chauncey to have that crazy look in his eyes again and for the trophy to be in their hands in mid june with their lip marks on it again !!!
hopefully again is TONIGHT!
Why no GUARENSHEED YET
I wonder if is this is the lst game for webber as a piston
this game will probably end 1 of 2 ways, either the Pistons win by single digits, or they get blown out. Our starters played such heavy minutes last game I’m worried that it’s going to be the latter. And speaking of last game how do you not win when THREE cavs foul out, I guess this shows that the pistons are not playing with heart. Move the basketball.
I am going to see a movie and leaving my cell phone in the car so no one can text me about what is going on with the game. Don’t think my heart can take it. When I don’t watch the game, they win. Doing the opposite so my boys can get the W and bring it back ti the palace.
!!!!!!snotsip og stel
Hey can someone tell me what is happening? Why are they in a delay?
i swear that the officials have it in for dyess after the last game..3 fouls already and theres 7 min. until half time? youve got to be shitting me. the refs are trying so hard to hand the game/series to the cavs – just look at how few free throw attempts the pistons have. the league just wants lebron to have a ring, and soon. not denying that he’s a great player. but this is ridiculous.
i’m disgusted by the nba. you may pull in millions by marketing one or two superstars, david stern, but you’re alienating the rest of the fan base.
well, in game 5 i was reading the “play-by-play” scoreboard in nba site. And it shows what’s happening on both team. But today, I opened it and trying to read what’s happening they’re only showing what’s happening on Cavs http://www.nba.com/games/20070602/DETCLE/gameinfo.html?nav=scoreboardhome
What’s going on? (can u say bias?)
I really hate to blame the officiating for everything but you really have to admit there has been a whole load of bull shit going on in favor of Mr.James. Like people said before me, there is no doubt that hes a great player, amazing even, but some of the BS thats been called is sickening.
With that said I really think Detroit has been failing to do what everyone here knows they are capable of pretty much every game this series. Cleveland is a one man show and with lebron leading the cavs with all 9 of his points at the line how the hell is this game tied?
Anyone else think it’s odd how many Cleavland fans criticize D-town for its crime and how “bad of a city” it is (as thought the infastructure of the city shares a direct relationship with it’s multi-million dollar pro athletes. Meanwhile every game at “The Q” has had some kind of srtructural inadequecies? The cieling falling a part, the shot clocks freesing, the horn breaking and the game clock not working, huh?Quicken loans = GHETTO!~Richie~
Boobie? What the hell is a boobie?Isn’t that a A-size boob? Why would any one want a dumb nickname like that?I wish the plane with all these NBA refs on it would just fall out of the sky. Yo Stern you dumb prick, courting casual fans only hurts the league because they lose their interest quickly.
I just got home from the movie and saw the score. WTF is going on???
the refs have taken over of this game…barely even watchable
this shit is unbelievable!!!
Yep, fuckin’ zebras just called a foul on Sheed for sidling against LBJ, and made him fell down.Sheed just got tossed.
Here’s some consolidation, folks!The Calves are just like their Ohio State football and basketball team. Ain’t play anyone tough before and when they go to the finals, they lose!
42 Free Throw For Cavs?Good Job Ref
oh no =[
I think Im going to vomit
we have gone to the free throw half of that. Flip is gone after this season. He can’t get us pass the conf finals. WTF. Same shit like last year if we lose.
I CANT BELIVE THIS. THIS IS NOT THE DETROIT I KNW AND LOVE
This is FLIP doing. At least when we had Larry Brown we made the finals and lost to SA in 7 games. Offense win games but Defense win championships. I’m going fucking vomit.
hahaha peace out!!!!!
I think the MVP of the last 2 games is definately the Referees. Without them turning their head when one of Detroits players getting fouled, and their constant calling BS calles when Cleveland goes for a shot, Cleveland would not have won the last 2 games. I hate the Spurs, but know Im forced to watch them kill the Cavs 4-1 for the title.
I am so speechless righ now.
disappointing .. enough said
flip gone after this ?chauncey gone ? =/
things aren’t looking good.
i’m from france, i watch the game online, and i am very disapointed by this game! What a lucky bastard that boobie or whatever!
At first, i wished San Antonio will lose the finals whether it is against Cleveland or detroit, because I hate this cocky “think he can rap” tony parker. But now, i wish cleveland’ll lose the finals, because there are plenty of faces in this team i can’t support : Varejao (what a gay haircut), gibson, Jones, Gooden and his dumb square of hair…and yeah they also beat my pistons..
I wish it is not an end of an era for the pistons. Dumars better resigned Billups!
Another disappointing end for the our Pistons. Let’s just hope we manage to keep Chauncey next year.
To the Cavs fans, congratulations. You’re team played a good series. You have been due a championship. We get a little spoiled in Detroit with our teams usually doing well. I know you have been looking for something like this for a long time. Good luck with San Antonio.
word. however, i disagree with finals score. spurs have way too much rest and talent to not sweep the cavs. Spurs in 4
LOL, David Stern won’t let LeBorn lose 1-4.
i dont care what ANYONE says… game 6 was COMPLETE bullshit..and i cant STAND lebron james !!!! and varejao or however you spell his name is a DIRRRRTYYY player !! i know those refs saw the way he was hastling sheed he kept bumping into him so sheed just took care of it and gave him one big bump and they call it against him! and varejao caused c webb to get the tech cause hes DIRTTYYY!!!
pistons couldnt get not ONE call for them but the refs were very generous with the offensive fouls and anything that could possibly go against them.. but the cavs got their fouls anytime they were even touched.. could it have been ANY more obvious that the refs were FOR the cavs?!? they gave them ANYTHING they wanted any little chance they could…
now its time to worry our asses off about chauncey staying… omggggggg i hope he does!!!! i dont know what id do with myself if he left detroit! no lie
The Pistons are great, but not even they can beat the team of LeBron James and David Stern.
Detroit in 08.
I knew your superstitious opposite theory wouldn’t work, I think it worked into the Cavs hands, lol. Anyway bad luck to the Pistons, I’m just sad for C-Webb because he was the only one out’ve the whole team who really wanted that ring, I hope he’ll play just one more season. And Congrats to the Cavs and LeBron. I hope they can win in 6 or 7 games. We were all “Witnesses” to his spectacular performances during the series!
sorry to blow it for all u bronbron nut-ridders but watch is off arm on EVERY DRIVE and nm the calls just this series but his entire NBA carrer and, …. sorry to spoil your fun but yea that is an offensive foul. and if your the king james sweater that stern is trying to create then pat yourself on the back cause u now know that the actual rules of basketball dont apply and your king is a fouling narcissistic douche. so cheer on you stern brainwashed non-basketball sorry sons-of-bitches
I am so fuckin disappointed. I am lost out of words. I LOVE the PISTONS – ALWAYS & FOREVER. But I gotta give it up to the cavs. They played like they wanted it more in this series.
Now Im just worried with whats gonna happen with Chauncey Billups. It drives me crazy just thinkin about it.
WORST FUCKIN SERIES I HAVE EVER WATCHED!
this game was bullllllllllSHITTTTTTTTTT !!!!!!!!!!!
omggggg i cant EVEN STAND seeing lebron go to the freakin finals !!!! now you KNOW if they become champs then the refs are MOST DEFINITELY on their side casue theres NO WAY IN A HELL the cavs are gonna beat the spurs without cheating!!!!!!!!!!!!!
im soo mad rip fouled out !!! he didnt even get to play his full last game for this season :[ and where was chauncey?! well wherever he was tonight i hope hes in DETROIT next season playing DETROIT basketball and NOT hwere he was tonight!
and damnnnn i hope c webb stays .. he was outta there as soon as the clock hit 00:00 !! but i dont blame him.. i wanted to throw up when i realized the pistons season was over while the cheated for cavs’ seaosn was still going !
i dont care tho..ill be wearing my hamilton jersey ALLL day monday and i dont care HOW much shit i get at school cause i know im getting a lot at leas ti know we hvae a team not a gay ass superstar to win our way through the series by the mesmorized refs :[
GO PISTONS.. we’ll get em next season hopefully with a new coach bringin us back to the old play but with a NEW strategy and HOPEFULLY with chauncey still on our side!!!
sorry for the length im just angry
We played six bad games, like Barkely said. If we would have managed to get by the Cavs, I don’t think our “unmotivated” play would be enough to even compete with the Spurs (especially considering the high level the Spurs are currently playing at).
We had a good season. We also had another dissapointing letdown in the playoffs. Changes are going to have to be made. I don’t know about all of you, but the NBA is becoming harder to watch every year for me with the promotion of superstars and their ability to control the whistles. Let alone, NBA games are often slow and somewhat dull when the refs keep blowing the whistles so much. David Stern has to be loving it.
Until next season. Go Pistons.
Thanks Natalie for the website. Don’t think I would have gotten through the playoffs without it. Until next season. Go Pistons. Hate the Spurs with a passion but will be force to watch them kill Cavs.
Hey Detroit,Would you like a little cheese with that whine?This is disgusting. Is it always somebody else’s fault with you guys?
Cavs beat us and they party like they won the championship. That says something about the Pistons. If we beat them, we would be like, next…
The year after Detroit won, we were the team to beat
The year after San Antonio won, we were STILL the team to beat
After Miami won, we came back and were still the team to beat
Lets see if Cleveland lasts as a good team next year, or if again we come back as, the team to beat on the east, or the league
I don’t thik San Antonio will sweep them. Refs are going to call in ‘Brons favor in that series too. Stern needs Lebron to win for the $$$. Pistons win = Boring for NBA, Spurs win = boring for NBA.
