    Default The Cheering Thread

    This thread is for all those fans that actually want the Raptors to WIN the games they play. This thread is for positivity in relation to the team, players, coaches, management, etc. to show them that we SUPPORT them in their battle for W's.

    I'll admit, I jumped on the tank brigade some weeks ago prior to the Rudy Gay trade. The team was awful with Rudy in the lineup. Their were obvious trust issues, obvious chemistry issues, and Rudy seemingly had just as much control over the team as Casey did.

    But now...it's completely different. There really is no comparison between the current team and the team with Rudy. There is ball movement, there is trust, there is chemistry, and better yet, there is an obvious belief that we can win games and succeed. EVERY player looks better now compared to when Rudy was here. Casey too. Now I'm not advocating standing pat with this roster by no means, but I will NEVER again put myself in a situation where I hope the team loses games. I am ashamed that I fell under that spell.

    I now firmly believe in this team and franchise. I firmly believe that good things are going to happen and that there is no where to go but up. I no longer believe that crashing for this years draft is the best option for the franchise or me as a fan. I cheer, I want to win games...every game. That's the role I'm comfortable with. I am not comfortable with the role of cheering for losses.

    We are 7-6 on the road and only 4-8 at home, this thread created after the OKC victory. Is there some reason why this team performs poorly at home? Could it have something to do with all the negativity regarding the roster and coaching and what not in the media and sites like this one? Doesn't seem likely, but this team needs to know they are playing for more than just themselves, they are playing for US too, and we are here to support them.

    Add your comments if you please, but if you disagree please do not fill this thread with tanking crap and claiming that we want this team to win for all eternity, not just this season. It's been said a thousand times before and it's now falling on my deaf ears. Even if this success is short lived, even if MU decides to shake things up more, I will continue to cheer for this team and the players on it. I support you...who else?

    GO RAPS GO, GO RAPS GO, GO RAPS GO, GO RAPS GO, GO RAPS GO, GO RAPS GO, GO RAPS GO, GO RAPS GO

    Just a joke, of course

    Any fan not subject to mood swings is a cold, heartless bastard.

    Remember folks, this isn't about tanking or not, it's about supporting and cheering for the players that are busting their butts right now for W's. Why the hell would these guys play hard at home if everyone wants them gone?

    Of course, but there are better places than this for that type of support.

    Also, Raps have had the 9th hardest schedule so far, for opponents winning percentage. So there's that!

    Yeah, I'm guessing the Spurs will be weary and very prepared for this Raps team. Gotta keep Parker out of the paint...they do that and they will have a chance!

    I actually enjoy watching there games again! Win or lose I find myself enjoying the games ten times more than in the Rudy era. I don't think the addition by subtraction phrase has ever been so fitting to a situation

    I believe this thread was created with the specific request that it be the only one barren of this kind of bullshit, but looking at the avatar as a symbol, it must have been difficult to squeeze that head out of that sweaty, dark hole, so the effort has to be applauded. That being said, you're just making a fool of yourself when being presumptuous enough to think you know what fans that actually enjoy good basketball and wins by their team will do, based upon whatever your crystal ball tells you
