    Default RAPTORS FAN SeASONAL CYCLE

    1) Off-Season....acquistion of some nobody players - HIGH HOPES

    2) Pre-Season....We're making the PLAYOFFS

    3) Post 5 game into Season....I hate this place...fire BC, fire Casey, Trade Andrea, End the Euro Experiment

    4) Dec-12....We're missing the playoffs...Sporting scene here sucks

    5) FEB/MAR13 - Missed Playoffs confirmed....we suck

    6) Off-Season...signing a d-league player...HIGH HOPES...so eggciting...egg citing.

    Start again.

    You have to point out tho if your comment is sarcastic, or subjective, otherwise, its no fun.

    Don't forget about the endless debate between tanking (for draft position), and winning pointless games (for experience/culture change).

    Default Kidding

    Just Humor with tiny bit of truth...

    I lobe (Love) Raptors and I go through all those phases as a Fan of the only NBA team in town.
    Its sad but you have to find way to enjoy - its only entertainment.

    Usually, I'm in the living room alone watching the game to its entire end knowing a lose is coming. Once the game is over i head to my room and without saying anything my wife looks at me and says "I'm sorry they lost".

    She can just tell from my demeanor. LOL

    MR. BC , kindly find a way to trade Andrea for Josh Smith.

    Cheers

    Its not time wasted...its the reality of what the Raptor MGMT shows you...did they not say this team has depth, did they not say this is playoff team...

    Meaning that Raptor Mgmt has no clue as to what qualifies as depth nor playoff team in the NBA. This isnt EURO League.

    Its Sarcastic with some truth as to how the RAPTOR MGMT is trying to lure your $$$ and attention.
    They said its a playoff team...meaning they cant judge quality of team...they said this team has dept...yet the second unit is total screw-up....meaning the starting 5 have to play full to allow us a win.

    BS

    What my sentence has to do with EURO League? What tf. Seriously. BTW, what I was trying to say is that you just stated what's obvious... You don't need thread for that.

    1. Lowry's a nobody? JVs a nobody? Ross is a nobody? Sucks to be you.
    2. Nobody working for the team said "We're making the PLAYOFFS". They said the "goal" was to make the playoffs, but the funny thing in this world is that people/teams set goals and don't always reach them, yet accomplish something in the attempt. Would you have preferred if they said goal was to tank? If you understood differently, Sucks to be you.
    3. ........ Sucks to be you
    4. Personally, I can live with not making the playoffs if the team, and it's young players, show much improvement over the next 76 games, be damned with the first 6. If anything but playoffs this year disappoints you this badly, Sucks to be you
    5. ........ Sucks to be you
    6. ........ Sucks to be you

    Overall I'd say,,,,,, hmm, let me see,,,,,,,, it sucks to be you, and if you're this bent out of shape after 6 games, I'd suggest finding a different team to jump on the bandwagon, or find another hobby. Either would be better for your health.

    Too true. Far too often as well, unfortunately, for us fans. The irony is that I wonder how substantially a team's culture can change when between 1/3 - 1/2 the roster is turned over each season. Comparitively, I wonder how favorably impactful drafting a top-5 pick who can come in and positively assert himself to actually affect change can be, when it comes to improving a team's culture (compared to a mid-late 1st round pick who's happy to just get some playing time with the 2nd unit)??

    During the off-season: Everyone here was so much more optimistic than me.

    During the actual season: Everyone here is so much more pessimistic than me

    Just for the record Ross is a nobody. He can't even get much burn outside of garbage time on a team that is 1-5.

    The only reason people know JV outside Toronto is thanks to KD. Not saying they will always be nobodies but for now they are.
    LET'S GO RAP-TORS!!!!!

    Ross is a nobody because he hasn't got much burn 6 games into his career. JV's a nobody because people outside Toronto don't know him 6 games into his career.

    LOL, I should no better than to try and bring the panic button down to earth here. Never mind.
