    We are vocal and loud, sure. However I have seen many good ideas floated here. Both during game time and in between games. Not only that but both sides are represented and it gets down into figures and playing time and opponents stats and all sorts of technical details. Much more advanced than your average sports bar banter.

    That's because there's less beer involved.

    I know they do. Frank Layden was made fun of quite a bit on here for his, "Saggy Belt." Since that picture, Frank Layden's belt has been tighter than an Affliction t-shirt you see in the first 10 rows at a game.

    I have heard statements on the radio that I read on here the day before. I know the media from around here come to this site. At the least it gives them good idea's about what to talk about on the radio.

    I wonder why no one from the Jazz organization ever came to any of my poker games?

    Did you write this way on purpose, so they wouldn't do it again? ;)

    Wow! Jeremy Evans at point would be awesome! They could say no one is allowed on the court that's under 6'9". Also, no dribbling is allowed; only passes. ;)

    I've experienced the same thing. I'm sure that's what the radio show producers do while the hosts chat, at least. I would. I'd pick the topics that have the most views/replies/etc. Easy peezy.

    It's obvious Harpring doesn't know about the site as shown by his "Many Jazz fanz were really down on Burks during the first two months of the season" quote during tonight's game.

    So true. The majority here were pro Burks. Not everyone. He has his haters, but most people here wanted to see him play at least(to see what we have).

    Boone could use this site to get names right. During the Sacramento game, he said, "DeMarcus Carroll." How the **** do you **** up names when it's your job to do a play by play?

    And if by some miracle Boone or some one he knows reads this ****, dudes a straight ****ing *******. Not sure what's funnier, Boone shopping at, "Nordstrom's Rack" or the fact that he finds the need to be a pompous ***.

    I know for a fact that the Jazz organization follows Jazzfanz in some round-about way, let me explain. About 7 years back I was just a lurker on the board and around this same time, I was a fishing fanatic with my buddy. One afternoon while fishing, my buddy tells me about his girlfriend's chance interaction with Kirilenko at her bank - this was during the '06 playoffs when we played the Spurs in the WCF. If I remember correctly, Kirilenko came in to either withdraw money or convert dollars to euros because as he put it "We have a flight straight to France tomorrow after we lose to San Antonio."

    So young me, hear's this story and puts it up on JazzFanz as the first ever post by larryselbows. People on the board sort of scoffed at it, understandably, and for some reason that I still don't fully understand, some thought I was an alt account by DuckRogers, although they said my writing style was too intelligent and that I was probably too handsome to be Duck. Anyway that was a long time ago.

    So the next day, I'm watching the Jazz game and in the 4th quarter, the jazz are going to lose. I watch as Deron Williams throws a fit and after the game says that certain players "were already on vacation" before the series was over.

    I thought maybe this was a coincidence, but then about six months later I run into my friend at a night club in SLC and she's telling me the same story but there's a twist. About a week after the game she was told by her boss that the Utah Jazz called and asked if any of their employees post on an internet site about the Jazz players' transactions at their bank. Everyone in the bank was questioned and no one said that they did, so they concluded that another customer must have over heard the conversation and posted it on the internet. My friend seemed really annoyed by the whole situation so I never told her it was me :)

    Let's not be racialist and hate on Ron Boone. Besides, he's not the play-by-play guy, he's the analyst.

    Holy **** that's one of Deron's biggest quotes of all time and you may've caused it. That's funny.
