    Default Why Is Everyone So Focused On The Raps?

    The Argos just won a championship. The Blue Jays are relevant! Go out and celebrate!(especially,because that fat fuck got fired!)

    Instead of crabbing about how shit the raptors are...youve actually got some positive and yet, are still focused on the negative. Has it just been a negative,depressing,losing culture for that long, that toronto fans don't know what else to do!?

    The raptors are doing as expected and people are getting mad. Meanwhile, as i mentioned the thing about the argos and the jays...heck, i think even the marlies are doing good(?)...so, quit your depressed, angst-ridden rants, take a breath, and look at all this positive.

    Hell, the lockout keeps you from having to watch the maple laughs stink up the place!

    Seriously, the raptors sucking is nothing new. A major toronto team(sorry, toronto rock)winning a championship and the blue jays being relevant is!

    This is a Raps board, therefore as fans we talk about the Raptors. We voice our concerns about the state of the team, and watch as the youth in our team get more experienced.

    Agreed. This isn't Toronto Republic. This is a fan forum for all fans of basketball to talk, mainly the focus on the Raptors. Not just fans FROM Toronto, but Raptor fans everywhere. Like myself, from Vancouver B.C.

    Although, I was cheering for the Argos for I hate the Stampeders, and the 12-player deal was BLOCKBUSTER. Those things are discussed though in their own forums in their own categories.

    Love the thread lbf. Haven't seen you in a long time here. Poor bobcats. Hope they hit back hard in their next game or they could damage their fragile confidence.

    Not everyone here is in Toronto. The Raptors fanbase extends well beyond the GTA.

    What the hell are Jays? Baseball team I guess. Argos? This answers your question for you. ^

    That just makes our loss to them hurt that much more.

    Very true. I am also a baseball fan and a hockey fan. The only post or thread I've ever started about another sport was about MLSE and that huge trade a couple weeks back. But it was based on Raps getting the same spending freedom. Not baseball.

    I've said this many times and I'll say it again.. and I apologize to the fans on this board, but the Toronto Blue Jays are a farm team for Major League Baseball. Other teams use the Jays to develop talent and then they take them. The trades they make, nothing more than ways to keep the faithful from catching on to what is really happening. I know it all sounds conspiracy theorist-like, but it's the sad truth.

    The Argos? C'mon now. Can we at least limit our discussion to professional sports

    As for the Jays, like the Raptors, have done shit all. They're a garbage team until proven otherwise. The Marlins won a mere 69 games with the same core that's expected to lead us to a division title in a tougher division. Let's hold off on the celebrations....

    Typical Bad Toronto sports fan, doesn't realize the universe extends beyond the GTA. No offence to the good sport fans from Toronto, but a bad one is REALLY bad.

    +1 to Nilanka for the Argos comment. That's gold my friend.

    Ok, first of all, the Argos are not a more relevant team than the Rock. More relevant to Canadians, but totally irrelevant in their sport. When the Rock win, they are the highest quality team in their sport. When the Argos win, it's like the NBADL championship....most of these guys give pro football a bad name, otherwise they'd be in the NFL. People like CFL because it's Canadian, but it is terrible in pretty much every other way. I remember liking it more than NFL when I was a kid, mostly because of the higher scores...then I realized it's because of how shitty it is, and that teams can't defend and tackle worth a damn. Seriously, I'm pretty sure the CFL has 3 downs because if they had 4, no team would ever fail to get a first down.

    As for the Jays, I think they're getting tons of attention, considering it's the offseason. But how much talking can you do about a team that is still months from the season, and much longer before they might play 'meaningful' games. So the Jays are not relevant, because as Nilanka said, they're pretty much garbage until they prove otherwise. But again, they are getting lots of attention, and probably more than they have in an offseason since they acquired Paul Molitor.

    This is nonsense. Other than possibly Roy Halladay, can you name a single player in the past 5 years that this describes? Ten years? Delgado? They chose not to resign him. Shawn Green? Hated Gaston. The corpse of Vernon Wells? I can't think of a single player this describes.

    It's only the truth if YOU believe it. As slaw said, this is nonsense, and I don't agree at all.
