The worst - and i mean WORST season ever was the 97/98 season where EVERYBODY and their mother and their dog jumped ship and didn't want anything to do with the raptors. The GM just upping and leaving; The franchise player runnning after him like a sniffling baby shit head; the key guy in the trade for said player refusing to come to town. Fuck. That was the worst. Oh and we won 16 games all year long. good times.

Second worst was the Babcock year that he traded Vince.

Now those two seasons brought ANGER and FRUSTRATION and EMBARASSMENT to me.

This year sucks, but it pales in comparison. PALES.
100% agree!!

It was a perfect shit-storm of a season:

1) Zeke bailed in an ownership dispute
2) Demon demanded to be traded (and was) by our rooking GM (GG)
3) We were still playing in the Dome, MLSE still hadn't bought the team (for the ACC) so we were at risk of losing our franchise.
4) And than our head coach QUIT.

When has has a team suffered more than we did in 1997/98.

2008/09 in comparision is like a walk through a crowed mall, not a bare foot 1K walk over burning coals.
