Fairweather fans no. Because I'm sure a lot of us were there during the bad old days.
The people you quoted Dr. J, (Thriller, bballwatcher, I think Ivan) were all posting on the EBS board with you and I during those bad years. And I'm sure the rest like Claudius have been around to see those days.
It's just more emotion than anything that is talking right now. Of course none of us are going to abandon our team. But how can you possibly watch Raps ball right now when there seems to be a BIG MATCHUP every night now (considering how tight the WC is). I'm guilty of watching many of those games now rather than the Raptors
games versus low-quality teams, whom they appear to lose to.
