Funny how times change

Chris Forsberg dug up a gem today… an old website called "FireGlennDocRivers.com".

It's an awesome reminder of how times change.  I love this comment:

I already sold my tickets and I’m never buying another until Rivers is gone.

Brickowski (Comment on CelticsBlog.com)

I wonder if anyone out there knows Brickowski.  I'm wondering how quickly he backtracked on that.

Some other fun comments: 

Name: Paulie B

Comments: Been saying it for over a year, we can never win with this guy. I could hardly watch last year; this year is a joke. That was hideous game. We need a fresh start. I know we are not going to win a lot this year regardless, but we need a fresh start and if Danny can't see this he should go as well.

Name: Scott Mahan

Comments: Watching Doc coach (or lack there of) our team is kind of like watching your heavy set aunt join in on the volley ball game at the family outing.  Everyone kind of stands around and cringes, pretending not to look, just waiting for something horrible to happen…well its happening!!  Get rid of him!!

Name: Jai

Comments: Forget firing Doc. FIRE DANNY AINGE. How much more can he mess up this team.? He added a bunch of heartless losers that only care about themselves and his "star" players aren't any better.
Wally takes himself out of games. Pierce only cares about spinning and driving between 5 guys from the other team. Rondo is a ball hog and so is Gerald Green. Perkins is useless, Al shows up only half the time. Delonte is brain dead on the court. Tony Allan has his head in other places.

Bring back Antoine. His shot selection wasn't always great but at least he cared about winning. He knew what Celtics Pride was all about. Not a single person currently on this team can say that including Paul Pierce.

Name: Jungle Jim

Comments: Now, where can I sign to dump Danny Ainge and get rid of these carpetbagging owners?

I love that last one.  He wanted to ditch Doc, Danny, and the ownership group.  Danny then swung trades for Ray and KG, the owners went way over the luxury tax, and Doc coached them to a title immediately.  And now people are exhaling with the news that Doc's back for 5 more years.  

Of course, you realize that in 3 years, when we're in full "rebuild" mode… another "Fire Doc" site will pop up.  Welcome to the cyclical world of sports.

    You put me on full blast! In my defense, that was in the midst of a season where we won a blistering 18 games. Doc was playing a different lineup every week, and we could not win a close game. However, if Doc’s journey has taught me anything, it is that talent has a lot to do with it. I was obviously a little hard on Doc, and I’m glad he proved me wrong!

    Ha ha… hey.. good for you for stepping up and owning it.

    I think they were right. Doc sucks, and so does Danny and so do the owners. None of you Doc worshippers want to give the Big Three credit for being so effing amazing. THEY made the magic happen.

    Except that he was right the first time. Doc’s greatest talent is sucking up to the media and to Danny, and Danny’s greatest talent is being a compulsive liar and gambler, in my opinion. The Big Three won us a championship and those born losers get all the credit.

    So who’s a better coach? Doc is top 5 material in this league. Players dictate greatness in this league and if the perception is players want to play for Doc than that’s good enough for me.
    As for Ainge he’s hot and cold.

    This exact topic is the reason i was banned from celticsblog.com and became a redarmy soldier 24/7… best thing that ever happened to me. This was what i was talkng about to you John, I knew Doc was a good coach, just needed the talent around him. Anyways, i loved doc when we had 24 wins and when we had 60 wins

    Why are you a celtics fan? You never say one good word about the organization, facts are facts… players come and go but good organizations stay because of personal. I think you are crazy to bad mouth two professionals who have won awards at their positions. granted you can question the moves danny makes or the rotations doc does and how he handles his players but to sit here with a straight face and call them both losers is a joke on you.

    Paulmkane2001 reminds me of To The Ruins (TTR).
