    Straight up, joey. The amnesty is so irrelevant to a team in the situation of the raptors and stupid in general.

    That clearly it's become brought up so many times is because of the current situation or lack there of in the sportsworld.

    I'd rather have nothing to talk about as far as the raps go. Then discuss the current heap of garbage topics that always get brought up this time of year.

    On that note, there is a good percentage of you, who don't even check the other sub-forums on here. It's what makes it such a great site. That when there is jack shit to talk about basketball related, like now, there are about a million other things to be talked about on here.

    Whether sports related or not.

    Amir seems to be the only one who makes sense and that too only if a very good f/a acquisition is too difficult to pass on (who would probably cost most of a combination of Jose + Amir cap amts.).

    Agreed.
    But I think it also speaks to BCs ability to either NOT sign bad contracts, or get rid of them without having MLSE pay unneccessary amounts of money.

    Both of which should reflect positively on Colangelo.


    As to your point about the sub-forums being equally as entertaining as 'Everything Raptors', well theres no disagreeing with this.

    I get your angles on it and basically, every five convos we have, I have to mention your amazing avatar.

    But, people always get frustrated at Colangelo and the more you shut down logical reasons not to like him. The people that don't are just going to make more reasons. For sometimes the simplest reason that they just don't like the guy.

    It has nothing to do with BC, what kind of idiot GM would amnesty a 7 footer averaging 20 & 6 on a $10M contract? Compared to the recent big signings this summer he is a bargain.

    Brooklyn invested so much money into their contracts and they still are not contenders, but that's probably the case with all of the new yorke teams.

    And sticking to the thread i could only see the raptors amnestying Amir if they need extra dough for a FA

    I don't see anyone getting amnestied, Although I will admit that more people have been amnestied than I expected. The only 2 scenarios I see are career ending injury or a big time trade bonanza that requires some salary to he shed, but odds are 85% against it.

    For anybody who subscribes to the "raptors curse" concept, how can you not be frustrated that the lockout delivered this gift to all the foolish GM's out there at the exact time that Colangelo actually had mostly reasonable contracts. No JO, no hedo. Not even a Yogi. Not much reward for being responsible. There should have been some other exception that you get for not amnestying anyone. Well, if anything good came out of this, we now have a new word. Amnestying.
