    Default Hey TorStar- we deserve a Raptor's beat reporter that actually likes basketball.

    From the genius blog of Doug Smith:

    If there was any doubt — and I doubt there’s been for a couple of weeks — the direction that Masai Ujiri is going now with the HOTH is crystal clear.

    (Hey Doug, if there was never any doubt among fans and readers – then why would you make this statement as the headline of your sht analysis of the Daye signing?)

    He likes what he’s got, wants to at least give it chance and he’s only filling in the roster with cheap, no-risk additions.
    (Duh?)

    The latest? Austin Daye, on a ridiculously low contract that goes two years for $2 million with the second year only at the team’s option.

    The “news” broke while I was being Argo Boy…

    (I wonder how many other legit basketball writers moonlight in other sports instead of doing their job and getting scoops because they hate the sport of basketball so much? )

    …I didn’t think it was worth going nuts over while I had other stuff on my plate last night; I think that was the right decision.

    (Look here Smith, I don’t care how “busy” you are to do your job or that you have “a lot on your plate”(likely food) – I simply HATE your style of ho-hum reporting)

    Btw, I tried posting my rants last night on the Star…then I find out that the “comments are moderated by the AUTHOR.” Really Star? Not even the Editor? The author himself? Do you want feedback or bs?

    I just don't like his smug style of writing and how it seems he'd rather do anything else then cover the Raptors.


    Man, check out Griff’s blog for the length and the heart of it. Here is a man who clearly loves his job, is good at his job, is well connected in his sport and loves his sport. Doesn’t treat covering baseball like chore.

    I hope the Star’s sports editor is smart enough to look at this output and then call Smith into his office and ask:

    a) How come whenever a Raptors’ story breaks, you simply just quote someone from SI or Yahoo? Why can’t you break your stories on your own freakin’ home team?
    b) If I read another blog of yours where you spend half the blog writing some inane sht about your Super Family, soccer, or tennis, I’ll fire your azz.
    c) If I read another blog of yours where you take the juicy Raptors’ rumour of the day and write about ho-hum style and tell readers not to get too worked up…and then the story breaks the very next day – you’re fired.

    Dude, you honestly have nothing better to do than rant about some reporter? Ugh, get a life ... like honest question: Do you think you are accomplishing anything with this? Other than making people sick-minded people happy from hatred? (Honestly a question)

    P.S.: But yeah Griffin is pretty good

    This is a brutal, and ridiculous thread. We got a guy here completely flipping out on a reporter, covering a lottery team, during the dogs days of the OFFSEASON, not hopping on a fringe pine rider FA signing.

    You'
