    Nice post but these "open letter" thing make me cringe and nauseous

    why not post it as a regular post and not be too overly dramatic about it.

    no hate to the OP, i just hate open letters in general.

    unless you really mailed it or emailed it to Masai, then i deserve to shut up.
    Get this petition going and I will find a way to get it to Masai Ujiri

    guys, you really think Masai needs a petition to realize moving Lowry and Gay would actually help this franchise going forward?
    If he does not already know this we are doomed.

    Speak for yourself EDIT - No namecalling please, We're all adults here. You do not represent Raptor fans. Real Raptor fans have been watching this team loose for almost 9 years. Now we have rich owners and a supposedly savy GM and you want to go through another 3 years of losing. Give the city some playoff games. Achieve something first then rebuild. Don't just rebuild because u assume its a good draft. EDIT - see above.

    hahahaha i actually laughed.

    If 80% of the site is saying the same thing about the team then Masai for sure knows about it as well. The difference is, we may see it differently than he does.

    Wouldn't rich owners and "savy" GM know the process to take to win? What does "achieve something first then rebuild" even mean? How can one achieve with nothing?

    ...and douchebag? Sorry to say but I'm out of lunch money already.

    I agree totally... Didn't wanna reply because everyone is saying tank... But I'm frigging sick and tired of watching this team loose... I want this team to pounce on the opportunity of a weak division and allow dd jv and Ross to get playoff games under their belt when mu gives the rest of the roster a rehaul and makes this a really competitive team. I'm not saying don't trade gay or fire casey... I'm for that I just want this team to win some games

    If this is going to end up on Ujiri's desk we should all sign it.

    You know how rich owners and savvy GM become really useful?

    Build through the draft, use the benefits of rookie contracts to load your roster with talent, use cap space for 1-2 years to attempt to lure a top free agent, then use Bird Rights and the owners deep pockets to never see an OKC-type situation in Toronto.


    Oh, and stay classy.

    if the Republic is seriously considering sending this letter, i think we should take this out - on behalf of Raptors Nation

    coz not everybody here feels the same way.

    It won't happen though! They aren't that good, they aren't even atop the Atlantic anymore! As much is it sucks losing, it's going to be all worth it when we draft our superstar.

    What i want is a NEW HEAD COACH. And a Rudy Gay trade.

    Not gonna sign this. Sorry. You know my stance about tanking this year. And i dont think this letter will get to MU's desk anyway.

    First of all, ping pong balls are not in our favour so forget about that idea. but look who are the two teams on top of us... Boston and Philly who are gonna shit for a million years and bkn lost pierce for a month and can't seem to figure things out and nyk won't be able to get wins till Chandler goes back to playing defence for his whole team again. And think about it this way. I think that boston has the most stable team as in rotation and figuring stuff out but they don't have the talent to sustain it for a 82 game season... Other 4 teams including us are in a mess and are trying to figure things out. We have had little to no injuries... It is just that are coaching staff is just as shitty as title contender bkn. Nyk I have no words for and for philly- mcw is not gonna be able to keep up this pace for a 82 game season
