there was a certain trolling brilliance to multipaul... he'd make crazy claims... back it up with proof... sometimes, completely fabricated proof... but somehow he'd link to it anyways... he'd quote strange metrics nobody has ever heard of, and if you stopped to think about, weren't even real.. he'd start cheesy fan-service threads such as "Bargs is Tupac" and compare every rap to a rapper... for no other reason to have a thread in the main forum with Bargs in the subject line that wouldn't end up in the "everything bargs" mega-thread
tim was a different kind of beast... very intelligent, very factual, but VERY stubborn in his bargnani disdain. if bargs had a great game (it used to happen from time to time, we all forget), he'd find a reason to shit on bargs.. there was no give in his point of view.. he wasn't very open minded about the whole situation..
so you got one guy... stubborn and headstrong about his opinion... another guy, basically a high level shit disturber... and the results were comedy gold... and eventually severe annoyance from everyone else..
hell... i'd go as far as to say, the whole reason the "everything bargs" thread exists is because of those two
i think at this point, does anyone really care how they use Bargs? This team is not making the playoffs....
Honestly, I'd love to see him on the floor plenty if we can get more Bargs led fast breaks. At least he might end up making some Shaqtin a fool appearances....Someone's gotta give McGee a break.
Decent game for Bargnani. I would've liked to see JV play more thatn 15 minutes. Amir shoots 10 for 10 and has an AMAZING game with 12 offensive boards (15 rebounds in total to go along with 25 points). Ross looks like he should be getting the Bargnani treatment.....maybe we should put all our efforts into getting him going?? His confidence looks pretty terrible out there.....poor kid.
I do have to say, though, that Tim. W has been pretty much right about a lot of things, especially draft picks. He said Ed Davis was going to be good and that we should draft Drummond if he was available.
Stastically Amir and Lowry are best players we have on both sides of the floor, need more PT. Gay and Derozan are inefficient, Bargs in inconsistent. We need to be getting Lowry and Amir as much PT as possible.
Within 1 minute of the first quarter starting last night Devlin and Leo had started in on their 'gotta get Bargnani going', 'see if he can play with Rudy Gay', nonsense and I just wanted to throw my beer through the tv. We've alrdeay established over 7 years that Bargnani's play, even when he plays good, has little to no positive impact on this team's winning percentage. Whether he scores 20 or not, as pointed out above, has no bearing on winning and, in fact, correlates to losing. Since all he can do is score, well, what good is he then?
You'd think after 5 disastrous years you would want to get rid of any constant factors during that period. Not in Toronto....
by no means am i comparing him to hitler, but i am sorta comparing him to hitler.... hitler was a GREAT leader, but on the one issue of the jews he was a nutter... same deal... much lesser degree
he came off a little too didactic... which doesn't really allow for a decent back and forth... and that's just fodder for the trolls
He moved on to RaptorsHQ (which is terrible since the formatting change - what a mess) where he would get into it with Buddhafan (another ex-RR poster) and the comments section was the TimW/Buddhafan show. It made the comments section unreadable. Don't know where he is contributing now.
Tenforthewin posts things that aren't researched, and aren't plausible, and doesn't ever bother to defend his initial position. Mulitpaul would argue with you about bargs until you gave up. I'm surprised he hasn't been hired by Fox "News".
Click Here about the raps. Doesn't post as much as he used to but I still check it out every once and awhile. I'd love for someone to get him on a rapcast at some point.
I miss Multipaul sooo much somedays.
EDIT: Speaking of Tim W. and Bargnani, here's a post he did in Sept. 2010... Top Ten Myths about Andrea Bargnani in case any one is interested. It's an interesting look back into the bargnani debate.

GMing isn't an easy job... we can all debate, and point fingers, and opine on GMs we like or dislike, or who we think are doing an awful job... but really, it's not an easy job... even one of the worst GMs in the league, the majority of us wouldn't be able to do their job any better... its EASY to say "oh this is what the team needs, lets go after that thing"... but actually doing it, or doing something even remotely close to it, is hard as hell... i dont envy their jobs... i think BC has bungled alot of things.... ALOT... but even his screw ups, if put in his position, i wouldn't have been successful enough to get to the point of screwing up...
i DO think i could have been a better GM than Babcock
If i was the GM at the time in an alternate dimension... and i literally got a PIECE OF SHIT for Vince Carter... like, literally... somebody scooped up some NJ dog poop off the streets of Newark and said "i'll give you this for VC" and i took it... and somebody showed me a window into the other dimension and what Babcock got for him.... i woulda got that piece of shit bronzed and put it up in my trophy case
