Tim W. still runs his own blog http://www.wearingfilm.com/picketfence/ which I still check out from time to time. We should all raid it and tell him to come back to the Republic
The front page comments are embarassing, for the most part. I guess there's a tradeoff to making people accountable for what they say by requiring registration -- in that the volume might decrease -- but it would probably improve the quality of the comments. I honestly don't think there's anything to be lost by removing/banning comments/commenters who constantly post the same drivel, though. Something the powers-that-be might consider.
The forums, on the other hand, are great for the most part. The effort it takes people to register and post seems to make them stop and think a bit before ranting. I certainly haven't found a better forum on the web for Raptors discussion.
Tim W. should come back. I didn't agree with his polar position on Bargnani, and still don't, but at least he took the time to consider his opinion and present it thoughtfully. I still see him comment on Raptorblog every now and then, so he must still be interested...
Definition of Statistics: The science of producing unreliable facts from reliable figures.
I don't remember Bargnani ever struggling for such an extended length of time on offense. His shooting since he came back is 33% from the field and 15% from beyond the three point line. I know it's almost tradition to kill the guy, but those stats are abnormal. And hard to explain. For all his faults, we know the man can shoot.

While we're at it, I just want to thank all you guys for coming here and contributing the amount that you do. I've been MIA for the most part for the last year and a half (having my first child and starting a new job can do that to a person), but I'm amazed at the participation and the maturity (except heinz ..... I kid) at this forum and the lack of moderation we the staff actually have to do here.
Kudos to you guys for making our lives much easier here.
Oh ya, Tim W if your reading this, please come home.
Tim W !!!!!!!!!!!!!
I actually somehow don't see any comments on the front page. I think it's because I'm reading this at work and they've blocked Disqus somehow. All I see is a link that says "No Raps", on every single post.
