    I've had it up to here with how doug smith cannot objectively evaluate the raptors. Over the years he has never been critical of any of the raptors decisions(no small forward signing this summer, bosh debacle, you name it), but the lack of success proves that he is wrong.

    grange keeps on repeating the same rhetoric "bargnani is not paid like a premier player, and would thrive as a 3rd option" but how can someone who could arguably be the worst defender in the nba even be the 5th option on a contender?

    Am I wrong to think that my enjoyment of the game as a fan has been diminished b/c of doug smith and micheal grange's inability to evaluate this team in an unbiased way?

    Anyways if you feel helpless and frustrated but think that a change in the media culture would help the raptors, TWEET AWAY!!!

    Grange was better when he wrote for the Globe & Mail. He openly advocated tanking instead of winning meaningless games to close out a season.

    I want them to tell the average fan the truth. I don't think that is asking too much.

    What is the truth? Devoted Raptors fans can't agree here on RR, so what "truth" would you have the reporters preaching about to casual fans? It sounds like you want the reporters to start ragging on MLSE, BC, DC, players, whoever... which will wind up coming across as emotional sensationalism, which isn't reporting at all. I do 100% agree that reporters should stop drinking the koolaid and at least be fair, offering varying opinions - something that I think Tim Chisholm does quite well.

    That is exactly what I want, I think cox said it best heads would roll if the leafs started 3-13, so why not the raptors? we're supposedly a big market team, with excellent turn out during games,why the expletives* are they treating this team like it's based out of brantford. ***, i guess u could call this a rant
