    Default Why take the Raptors seriously? i don't think the Raptors take us(the fans) seriously

    That's all i have to say.

    Put a competitive team on the court year in year out and i might start watching again. Not sure when that will happen. This season is over. They're not getting Wiggins in 2014. So how would they do it?

    This team right now LACKS talent. They're poorly assembled. They're poorly coached, the GM talks a lot of bullshit. And the whole team plays like they don't care.

    So why take them seriously?

    Lowry is a decent PG but not what we need. He wants to win now; we need a PG that wants to learn and grow.

    Bargs is a good talent but not what we need. He has worn out his welcome and hasn't endeared himself to the fan base over the years.

    DeMar must have a really good agent. No way he earns that contract. Too soft and too feeble. A guy from Compton should be more fierce going to the rim.

    B.C was suppose to be a talented and coveted GM that would make the Raptors into a constant playoff team. I think we are worse off than when he arrived.

    As a multi sport fan who always cheers for my home team, I can't wait till spring training. At least A.A knows how to put together a team.

    If Bargnani wasn't playing I'd be more concerned. It would mean the team was considering keeping him long term. He will be traded this season.

    I don't care anymore, it is too taxing to get excited about the prospect of him leaving, and to a greater extent depressing to even consider the notion of him staying for the long haul.

    forget all that for a second, I will watch if I hear he isn't playing.

    I can stand watching a young team lose. I can stand watching a veteran team lose. I can't stand watching a NBA team get blown out by 32 points at the hands of a .500 club. I can't stand watching grown men sulk. WTF Raptors. All the years of support I gave you, and this is how you show your appreciation. I don't know how much more of this I can take.

    Lowry is better then decent. the problem is lack of talent on the team. Lowry shouldn't be the best player on the team. especially if were trying to be a playoff team. i agree with your Demar comment. Compton guys are suppose to be harder then this.

    Bargnani needs to go. Personally i really doubt he's even italian. I've never seen an italian so quiet and calm. He's never had a technical called. No emotion, no passion, no desire, no eye of the tiger when you look at him, doesn't speak with his hands, or speak period. Not a leader. I wouldn't even put him as the best italian player in the league. This guy is definitely from country and not from the city. No swag, no personality. When you watch real italian athlete's. I see the big difference. What a joke. Send him back home packing.

    Fans should bring trade AB signs to home games ...maybe he'll wake up.

    I'm looking for the stereotype thread. Have I found it?

    Don't take it seriously.... just look at it as entertainment, even a train wreck turns heads.


    I could admire the Clippers today, that ass kicking in the fourth is going to leave some serious bruises.

    Did not watch one game last year. Haven't this year. Don't plan on it next year.

    Probably not the year after that.

    Maybe, the year after.

    How far ahead am i?

    No,but, your post is pretty bland and generic.

    Haha; ok, maybe bland, but I think it's pretty specific.

    While I am not happy at all with the direction the Raptors took starting last Summer, I am not a season ticket holder and thus acknowledge my watching or not watching the Raptors may have no financial consequences to the Raptors bottom line.

    Just curious, when is the next television contract negotiated?

    I know this is rich coming from me, but that's a bit stereotypical innit?
