    Default Any "Boo Birds" Going to Today's Game?

    Hey dudes and dudettes, any of you fine folk heading down to the ACC to boo the shit out of Hedo?

    Sadly, I now hate this guy more than I did VC? How is that even possible?

    Ball

    Turkoglu is about to join a pantheon of former Toronto players treated harshly when they come back. Surprised should have been the last thing Turkoglu felt in Vancouver, having seen first-hand how Toronto fans treat his one-time teammate, Vince Carter. Nothing the 31-year-old Turkoglu has done since last season ended will do anything to lessen the reaction he gets Sunday.

    He’s refused to take much responsibility for a disastrous one-year tenure in Toronto after signing a five-year, $53 million U.S. deal. He was highly critical of the organization in an off-season interview from his native Turkey, suggesting there were deep-rooted issues that made the Raptors organization one players would avoid.

    BTW, for those that can't make it to the game this afternoon, cyber boo from the comfort of your home and chat with us here at Raptors Republic: Raptors Republic Live Chat - Toronto vs. Phoenix

    I hope every person in the building is wearing a "Hedon't" T-Shirt and booing at the top of their lungs.

    Doug forgot to mention Antonio Davis in his article.

    Just finished watching the game, and I almost laughed out loud when I clearly heard someone berating Turkoglu, shouting something along the lines of "You have ZERO work ethic, You're Pathetic!" Haha. Hedo was getting shit on the entire game.

    Haha I heard that too Leno that was awesome. I hope this symbolizes the end of the Carter booing. It seems to motivate Carter and he would usually play exceptionally well whenever he played against us. Im not to worried about this with Hedont, the only thing thats going to motivate him is the fresh box of pizza pizza waiting for him in the locker room.

    Ball.......

    I was at the game roughly behind the visitors bench and there were two guys in the end stands that were heckling Hedon't mercilessly all game. Turk responded a couple of times to them but mostly just covered up with a towel over his head.

    someone has to show me a tape of that, I didn't even hear that, I recognized during the game someone was shouting something and ending the sentence with hedo, didn't really hear anything else.

    What if... Blazers had drafted both Drexler, Jordan?

    Michael Jordan was the #3 pick in the 1984 draft, after Portland selected Sam Bowie second.

    I heard the heckler on TV. I laughed. I do question the point of booing, though. Never really understood it. What's the point? If it's to make the player feel bad, it doesn't. It usually just makes them laugh and makes them feel more important. "Look, all the fans are booing ME!". Personally, the best way to respond to guys like Turkoglu and Carter is to simply ignore them. Don't cheer or boo them. To me, that's going to piss them off more than anything. To show them you simply don't care about them.

    Hedo is a professional athlete, he is used to those sort of things, it rolls right off his back.

    the same point of the dudes who run out on the 300 level tossing out t-shirts... same point as the various different raptors mascots that come out to entertain during breaks... the same point the dance pack's jillys quality coreography

    its stupid, but its fun.
