This guy is so insecure. OF COURSE he phoned up wanting to clear the air. He is desparate for approval. He needs to be told he's a celebrity. He loves the sound of his own voice. I turn the channel when his hyena-mug comes on and I won't listen to his whiny radio request for forgiveness.
As for hating Toronto, the Raps or even Bargs you don't know me hombre, I don't hate anyone or my city.
I'm born and raised here and have been following the Raps longer then you were Bargnani's saddle.
Come back to me when you actually support a team and can objectively critique a players game instead of having an infatuation with a one dimensional (yes he can shoot) player.
Clearly Bosh is already missing being "the man"
I don't think there was any uproar he had to address, it's all about him wanting to feel he's a big deal,and we hang on his every word.In the future I suggest he not be given radio time upon request, that will really drive the media whore crazy.
Bosh responding to backlash from Toronto fans is hilarious.
Is there any athlete more thin-skinned than Bosh? No wonder he backs down whenever he's matched up against guys like Garnett , Boozer, etc. What a pussy.
bosh will end up like carter and T-mac and stoudemire like them they are not who they think they are. Plus he is the weak link on that team its clear as day when you watch the boston game.
Like I told my friend the other day, "this is not fantasy league this is the nba!" and I am tired of bosh talking about toronto
I really dont care what he meant or what his intentions wer,he's not on my team anymore so f1uck em....im about the team not any one player....
Misquoted my ass:
http://www.tsn.ca/nba/story/?id=338867“Really, it's all about being on TV at the end of the day,” Bosh said. “Seriously. A guy can average 20 (points) and 10 (rebounds), and nobody really cares. If you don't see it (on U.S. national TV), then it doesn't really happen.”
"I didn't want to go there," Bosh told the Miami Herald in July. "It was different. All I knew was Vince Carter was there and I never saw him play on TV. It was a whole different country, and it was just different. I'm 19 years old, I didn't know anything about culture and being away from home. All I know is the States. Toronto's a great place, a fantastic city. It's a metropolitan area, but you could tell you're somewhere different. You could feel it, you could look at it, you can smell it. Everything. All your senses tell you you're somewhere different."
Did winning also fuel his desire to leave? Yes. Did publicizing and monetizing himself fuel it even more? Yes. Do I blame him for leaving? No.
Just don't tell me Chris Bosh does not crave media attention 100 times more than any other NBAer.
Whatever, so Chris Bosh has desires greater than what the Toronto Raptors can help him attain. Can't blame him for that. It was pretty ugly the way he left, but his reason is sound and makes a lot of sense from a personal perspective. So let's all get over it and give the guy the respect he deserves for the hard work he put in for 7 years (maybe 6 3/4). Cheer for him when they call his number before the game, but boo him when he gets the ball. Seems right to me.
I just have a feeling that we won't have to deal with this shenanigan with Ed Davis. That makes me happy. Time to move on.
PS> I don't give him credit. This sounds like his agent got on the phone and said, "Shut your mouth Chris!". American and Canadian media OUTLETS (yes more than one) have written that TV was the only reason for his departure. This is simply damage control people.

That is all Mr. Bosh.
Thank you come again.
Hopefully you aren't offended, it's all said with a smile amigo's, I promise.
About the poll on the main page...where's the option for "all of the above"?
Those who boo Bosh boo themselves as he was a Raptor for 7 years it's not his fault that he saw BC's vision as bull chit especially in relation to Riley's vision in Miami.***
BC's kool aid is very infectious but so are Jay and his lies, deceptions via the media in relation to the whole CB f/a situation- trying to cover their asses in front of fans & MLSE by slandering, questioning Boshs' character after he bolted for Miami. All this after BC try to bogart Bosh into a sign & trade to a team that offered more than Miami was willing to give up only to get the table turned on himself and his bull chit janky ways. ***
From what i've seen from Bosh thus far, he seems like one of those guys who will change his tune depending on who he's talking to. Class act means nothing, of course he's going to be a class act when we're paying him millions of dollars per year. When he's talking to the US media he says what he wants, then tries to clear his name by saying something different and claim the media took his comments out of context.
Now he's gone, the truth is coming out. He wanted the media spotlight, he wanted a championship, Toronto didn't give it so he left, why not just come clean and say that's why he left. Sure he goes on fan590, but that's just to save face so he isn't booed in Toronto and we don't hurt his poor little feelings. Not to mention, this is a huge market for him, and if he releases another DVD (or dare I say book), he wouldn't want to miss out on more of our $$$.
Why does this remind me of a high school TV show? This is the episode where the popular kid does something terribly wrong that enables the entire school to hate him and he wants to win them back by being nice. I don't understand why he cares so much, it sounds like if he gets booed in Toronto, he's gonna have a nervous breakdown or something. He definitely has some issues if he can't understand that people are bound to hate on him. Now whether their hatred is valid or not is a different question but it's gonna happen and I don't understand why he wants to "clear the air." I don't think it was taken out of context, say what you mean and mean what you say. Don't go backpedalling on your own comments unless you know you were wrong.
He talks to much Crip. It seems he does care what people in Toronto think of him to be constantly trying to mop up these little messes he's been making. If he would just shut up about it and play ball he wouldn't have to worry about this crap. If he had just shut up from the beginning until now Raptors fans wouldn't be so against him. I know he lost me completely because his words and not because of the act of leaving the team. He's a media slut and it's so exaggerated that it's hurt his reputation in Canada and I would imagine also in basketball savvy locations around the U.S. He's his own worst enemy. It's like he's so self absorbed he can't even draw the connection between him discussing why he left and people from Toronto's anger towards him. It's at moronic proportions now.
