Once again, Dougie Smith bows down to Raps and says, "Yessir."
So let me get this straight.
Raptors fans are wise to ignore the 'heat' GM Bryan Colangelo supposedly faces: Smith
I think I need some help here.
All last week, and actually for a few weeks, I’ve been told that this guy or that guy (specifically Bryan Colangelo and Dwane Casey) need to be “feeling the heat.”
What does it mean?
Especially about the GM.
Do you think he’s not trying to make moves to make his team better? Like he’s not making calls and seeing what’s out there?
Does it mean every single story ever written on these guys has to point out the last five years? That’s kind of boring and repetitive and, frankly, not something I feel like doing.
Sure, we write every day than things aren’t good, their record is in every game story and I think the tone of the most pieces would echo the fact they begin this trip 4-13.
But “heat” is such a strange and vague term it’s almost wise to ignore it.
Should we somehow be urging him to do something every single day? Like that’s going to force him to make a move? Should we call for someone’s firing once or twice a week without any suggestion of what a replacement might be?
No, not a chance. Sorry. We continue to point out how things are, what the problems are, how they might be fixed.
That’s about all the “feeling the heat” you’re going to get here, or really should anywhere.
Raptor fans should just ignore and keep quiet about the possibility of this being the 5th season without a playoff appearance?
Raptor fans should just ignore and keep quiet about being tied for 2nd last in the league through 17 games?
Raptor fans should just ignore and keep quiet about the endless and unfulfilled hyperbole spewed by Colangelo year in and year out? (flexibility, young guns, rebuild, build, acceleration, etc. etc.)
Raptor fans should just ignore and keep quiet about the regression shown by the team this season?
Raptor fans should just ignore and keep quiet about the 7 years of misery with Bargnani and the revelation he is what he is - nothing more, nothing less?
I think Raptor fans should just ignore Doug Smith and he should just keep quiet. Thanks for all those hot tips and rumours Doug! Thanks for breaking all those stories, Doug! Thanks for asking the tough questions that need to be asked, Doug! Thanks for.... oh wait a minute, you don't do any of that.... Thanks for nothing, Doug!
