Well this is why people need to start loosing their jobs over this.
...so far no one has, refs should be fined, if it costs them $ for missing calls, they will no longer miss calls. Game changing calls should be 5X the fine.
...and you always have access to the replay, if you are not sure.
If the nba doesn't respect us as a team, then why should we even be one. Lets just follow suit with Vancouver and move our entire organization along with Ed Davis to Memphis. The league doesn't deserve a Canadian team anyways. Hate to come off so overly patriotic but it's true.
IMO there should be a rule change where a coach could throw in a flag if he thinks there was a missed call (like football), give a coach like two flags a game and this no-call nonesence would end right now
Raptor Fans get bent over again.... with no vaseline! Come on Refs! FOUL!
Okay... Recurring dream or did that really just happen again?!? Seriously wouldn't u like to mention your home team's name, cough, cough raps, cough... without quizzical looks from people? What can we do to gain the league respect? Will we always be that team? Or are we finally building the team for the long run?
I was a huge Drea fan but Jack Armstrong makes good points about how the league has gotten smaller. Where does the 7' Italian fit in that makes out with the ball before he knows what to do? Now the league is full of shooters & blocking out the paint isn't as important as guarding the perimeter. Drea argument before was he opens up the paint cause they have to respect his 3ball. Well in his absences the lane seems open enough for dunking. Ask Ross & DeRozen.
So are we heading in the right direction taking an overpaid SF that is the GodFather of our PG's kid? Chemistry. BC is all about the chemistry of a team & will keep trying different things till he finds what works... Even if you are shaking your head asking why he does what he does... I'd like having a GM with the balls to trying different options rather then sitting waiting for the option to fall into his lap. Cause the enigma of the Raptors is an puzzle people have been trying to piece together since opening day. One day I will proudly say I am a Raptors fan.... But just not yet. ;)
Ok one thing, We shouldnt give up leads to teams where it comes down to 1 shot to win or lose the game. However a foul is a foul regardless of what time is on the clock, If Raps played that like ATL did it would have been freethrows.... If you could play the last possession of a game like ATL did every team would do it watch the replay that wasnt solid D it was just straight up dropping bos on DErozan not once but twice in the act of shooting even Amir got destroyed.
That shit was straight up foul and its just unbelievable, how many times this has happen, Raps broke that D and got to the basket.
Come on Raps! Quit these rollercoaster games & lets seal the game before the 2min mark.
