    Fact is Toronto sporting event goers know next to nothing about fandom. The closest are the supporters of the match games at BMO field. They take drums and shit, and wear scarves.

    Between the Jays winning in the early 90's, with dim witted denziens only managing to copy a pre macarana dance the 'wave' and puckheads throwing waffles at the hapless leafs; this city doesn't know shitty from from chocolate when it comes to celebrations.

    If we want better we need to make it better. Anyone have an unlimited supply of cash to fly-in and put up the RR community for every home game?
    Sure I'd be happy to drown out the boos with my unbridled joy. Would have to be a pretty rich dude though..my plane ticket wouldn't be so cheap.

    I just wanna know when this will change. Fans more happy about getting a slice of cardboard pizza the next day or cheering their team that just went 10 games over .500?? Disgusting For Fuck's Sake!!
    pretty sure most casual fans attending games have no idea what .500 even means. so yes, pizza is probably more exciting.

    I'm all for getting rid of the Pizza promotion or varying it.

    I think that some posters have been too tough on the fans doing the wave, even during Lowry's free throws. You really can't have it both ways. Either you want to have people engaged, excited and involved or you don't. Asking the casual fan at the ACC to cheer only at the right time is not realistic. And given the choice between the two, I'd rather have the energy in the crowd than not. So what if it's corny? I don't recall if Lowry missed any FTs either - but if he did, I bet he'd tell you it had nothing to do with anything the crowd is doing.

    I do know that those people would be cheering after a win if there was no pizza.

    Just another reason for a premiere free agent not to come to Toronto. T.O., the city where fans boo everything. Yeah there's a reputation we need.

    What if we win game 7 of a playoffs series, say, 98-94, and people boo?

    That will really show the NBA how much Raptors fans care...

    The pizza isn't even good! And who actually goes to claim it? Get rid of it.

    Our fanbase are embarrassing at times(not just this game but of course the Rudy Gay booing) and may be the reason they keep putting terrible games like the Lakers on international TV vs this excellent game against the Grizzlies....the wave is ridiculous and I believe is only enjoyed by the children at the games(at least I hope so). My suggestion for the pizza promotion is to give pizza only in the circumstance we enjoyed last night i.e. when the Raptors have the final possession in a win and do not attempt a shot. Anything related to scoring levels will only promote this idiotic booing behavior.

    What if the score is 110-94 raps and some jackass stat stuffer at the end of the game gets a lay up and the score ends 110-96?

    Booing starts and ur in the same place as the other promo. Fans booing a win

    Regardless, they'll always have some type of promotion. All I'm saying is that I liked this dude's suggestion better.

    At the end of the day, every professional sports team has their chunk of moronic fans. Ours just happen to be a large amount of "tweens" who were likely given free tickets to a Raptors game, heard about this ridiculous promotion and get as excited as a whore in a forrest of cocks when the Raptors are winning and anywhere close to 100 points. They aren't fans like us that are as emotionally invested in this franchise and actually get it. JMO

    "IF" this ridiculous promo stays, it can only truly 'work' if they give away pizza for a simple 'WIN' (nothing to do with the 100 pts marker, or keeping opponent pts below 100). That eliminates the ability of band-wagoners to 'boo' OUR team after they JUST WON THE GAME. (Put the focus on the 'W', not pepperoni)

    Good idea. If there is no scoring bar and just if we win there's pizza, the fans who only cheer for pizza will cheer whenever we win.

    The people watching who have no idea about the promotion will think Raptor fans care a little more about the team than we (or at least those pizza obsessed morons) really do.

    50 points at halftime and they have to win. Fans can't boo because no one holds the ball at half and end of game they have to win for it to be allowed so they can only cheer a win and Pizza Pizza wouldn't have to give up much more pizza than they do now.

    The booing is ridiculous when they don't shoot for the 100 pts and hold the ball at 99 or what ever 98 !!! If they want pizza that much don't buy a ticket to the game; go out and buy many pizza's for the price of a ticket to the game!!! To top it off the pizza is not that good anyways; plus with some of the pizza; pizza places you think the free piece of pizza is coming out of their own pockets. A lot of the time they are rude to customers who are going in to get a free piece of pizza; sometimes not worth getting because of the way you are treated by the individual stores!!! As far as I'm concerned ; get rid of this promotion; not worth the hassle of the booing when we win and also dealing with the pizza stores !!!

    Yep, and they could even just select a certain amount of games on the schedule where the promotion applies if they don't want to hand out pizza every game next season when we go 41-0 at home.

    Honestly this is the worst promotion and makes me so mad to go to a game and hearing people chant 'Pizza Pizza' instead of chanting 'defence'. They need to just get rid of it all together. If you're willing to spend $40+ to go to a game you should be willing to spend $3 the next day if you want pizza that bad.
