    I don't know about not starting T. Ross or at the least playing him more coming off the bench. He's barely getting any playing time right now. But then again I don't know what managements objective is this season. I have a hard time beleiving that winning is their number one agenda if they are starting a rookie centre next to a defensively inept PF, as has been illustrated so far with opposing teams doing the majority of their damage in the mid to low post (both offensively and defensively). They can't seriously be thinking JV is going to be able to anchor the defense this season.

    While fields has sucked he hasn't been the reason we're losing. Id say Bargs should be getting the brunt of everyones frustrations, its like he got gaslighted into forgetting to play like he did last year. Just abysmal.

    We have no more words for Bargnani

    We're like a housewife in year 15 of a bad marriage. You still see all the same problems with him, but now you just look the other way and go back to drinking your wine.

    Bargnani was given the "Raptors Player of the Game" award on last night's TSN telecast. I thought Amir deserved it by a long shot.

    I am thinking that Fields will eventually return to his previous form.

    Bargs got his points but he still stank. Amir and Demar were the best players on the floor by a longshot and the only ones that seemed to care in the second and third quarter.

    TSN knows as much about help defence as Bargnani does, so I guess it was a fitting choice by them.

    It was weird hearing Jack openly question Bargs during points of the game last night.

    It won't last. I remember a couple years ago when Rautins got fed up and started telling the truth about the guy. That went on for about 2-3 games before it was stopped.

    Leo sounded pretty fed up too last night.

    I would love to run into Jack or Leo at a bar, and ask them, "dude, tell me what you REALLY think of Bargnani"

    Totally agree with this. That's why I don't understand why they are starting JV along side AB. JV is playing his ass off, but clearly team D is going to suffer when you start any rookie centre next to a PF like AB.

    This has always been an issue.. it explains why Bosh's defense looked so bad when he played next to AB as well. Because Bosh's defense in Miami has been excellent.

    who realized how fed up they sounded about the Refs! I honestly never heard them question so many Ref decisions before.

    The only folks questioning Bosh's defense in Toronto were the same people accusing him of stealing Bargnani's rebounds.

    2006: Morris Peterson starts the first six games of the season at small forward, was yanked for Fred Jones and eventually Jorge Garbajosa would take over the position.

    2007: Free agent signee Jason Kapono starts the first six games of the season at small forward then loses his spot to training camp invitee, Jamario Moon.

    2008: Moon starts the first eight games of the season, and a smattering thereafter, before being traded with Jermaine O'Neal for Shawn Marion, who finished the season at the position.

    2009: Free agent signee Hedo Turkoglu starts the season at small forward, is universally loathed by fans, is traded in the offseason to Phoenix.

    2010: Free agent signee Linas Kleiza starts the first eight games of the season at small forward, was replaced thereafter by the minimum-salaried Sonny Weems.

    2011: Free agent signee Rasual Butler (inexplicably) starts the first fourteen games of the season at small forward before losing his spot to James Johnson.

    2012: Free agent signee Landry Fields has started the first five games of the season at small forward...

    Notice a trend here?
