    Its not that easy. 80% of the people that show up are casual fans

    Only protest if its against BC and MLSE. Do not protest against the coaching staff and players, you're just asking for trouble then.
    I totally agree for the most part players have played hard. Minus a few (Vince at the end, turkoglu). OWNERSHIP should get the heat.

    Sorry, but that's not the answer. This isn't a relationship. Protest MLSE, protest, Colangelo, protest the coaching staff....but don't protest the players. You'll shoot the organization in the foot cuz players will not want to play here even more than they already don't wanna okay here.

    shutup. No one cares for your 'Woah-is me' attitude.

    Ill tell you what is NOT healthy for any progress:
    Another Coaching Change
    Another 'Blow it all up' season
    Another desperate move to get slightly better in the short term

    Cant you for a second see the message you are sending as representatives of toronto fans? We want to be known as the 'Best fans in the league', that is our only way to attract free agents from our part.

    Just relax and stop watching for a while if you really want to protest.
    Agreed, though I doubt fan reaction is a big part of player recruiting, even though every free agent ever signed sites the fans as a reason he did...that's bull.

    You know what idiots, a few more wins and it's a 500 team, so just calm the f down. Demoralizing start to the year, yes, absolutely, team missing a true star player,yes, team missing a small forward, in more ways than one...misguided focus on running in training camp, probably, but if we had gotten the pacers opener, the jazz, the bobcats, let's say just those 3 easily had games that came down to make or miss, the playoffs would still be in sight,which is where the team is in it's stated plan, and should be. Leave the decision making to basketball professionals, pleeeease.

    Oh, and maybe cheer for the team if you happen to be at a game and not in your basement.

    We all make signs and go protest the next home game

    Signs must demand trades, action etc...

    I think we would be the first fans to ever protest our own team.
    A hundred times no to this. This is a horrible horrible idea. You don't protest the player's and coaches, especially since all but one or two seem to be giving their all. We've got to "hold our team down", "have their backs" so to speak through this tough stretch.

    Rich people don't like to be embarrassed. Since they are not competent enough to compete while staying under the cap. Then why not go over. Look at the nba teams payroll. Why are we not close to the top? Because of suckers like us.
    I guess you don't know very many rich people. Do you really believe that some petty little protest from 200 fans will produce any response from the owners? You idiots are suggesting that you buy 200 seats to do it. Seriously? This franchise is still one of the more profitable ones in the league and if you think that by supposedly embarrassing the owners they will change personnel you are very sadly mistaken.

    I'm not saying protest would work but doing nothing hasn't worked. Every movement starts small. MLSE has ruined sports in this city. We deserve better.

    I don't think anyone would seriously consider walking over to the ACC and handcuffing themselves to the gates while waving crudely constructed bristal board banners. That's just crazy talk.

    But the bigger issue is that this team is stinking pretty badly right now, with a plethora of reasons why, and very little reason to believe things will magically change with the current roster.

    I think this thread is just a satirical attempt at venting.
