    Default How Many Raptors Repulicans Ever Visit the Official Raptors Website

    Just wondering. Do you ever check in there? A couple of times a month? Weekly? Every couple of days?

    I just realized that through this whole off-season I haven't been there once and don't think I was there more than twice or three times last year. Mostly just to check game stats after the fact.

    Never. I don't care about puff pieces and I get my stats elsewhere.

    Never (a couple of times ever). Maybe I am overly prejudiced to the view that an independent and unbiased view about anything to do with the state of the Raptors is unlikely to be found there. It would be like going to Stephen Harper's website (does he have one?) at election time to find out about the state of the country. For some pic shots I might... but there are too many other sources.

    I usually only go to watch a full press conference after a big announcement.

    Well during the Lock-Out they were forbidden from discussing any of the playrs, so its understandable you didn't swing by. haha

    But generally, I will go there for any interviews, post game conferences and things of that nature.
    They have alot of great behind the scenes, and Mini-Series' features as well.

    I used to go there for information, until I got fed up with the analysis and searched for a better site on google. Which is how I found the republic. I never go to the home page unless it's to check the schedule

    It's up there on my toolbar, but I check in only a couple times a year since I found this site. I don't care for the sites content and they usually have old news nobody cares about. They aren't very quick to update either...

    I usually go there at the begining of the season to see any new videos or highlights of Raptors practices/interviews.

    During the season I only go there to confirm a circulated rumored trade, signing or a firing has occured. I try to avoid the propaganda machine "that everything is good in Raptorland" "Bargnani is the best" "things are looking promising" as much as possible.

    I used to watch the 'game in six minutes' highlight recaps if I couldn't catch the game, but aside from that, never. And if I remember correctly they didn't have that last year, just shorter recaps, which is a real shame.

    Honestly, I think this is more of the Raptors "Unofficial" Official Website. LOL. Though I admit the only time I check the "Official" website is when the Dance Pak is having their tryouts. :P

    This is the official raptors website as far as Im concerned. I was here daily during the lockout just to make sure. If someone links a video over there, Ill go look at it, but I've gone probably twice ever.

    I only use it to quickly scan the schedule or to look at pressers. Aside from that, I never log on.

    Usually only around draft time. I like the video content then.

    Like others, it's just press conferences and interviews that has me visiting the official site. I'll usually download their pocket schedule too.

    Between the top notch blog entries and all the great posters on the forum you'll be hard pressed to find better Raptors content than right here, that's for sure.
