I don't think there's anything sinister going on other than terrible decisions by the Raptors.
I agree with all points and I too don't believe anything Sinister is going on with the Raptors. I will say this,the NBA doesn't make an effort to show Raptors games on National American broadcasting networks. Maybe its ESPN and ABC's fault,but you'd think they can use a little bit of their power and influence. Not even when Bosh was a yearly All-Star and the Raps going to the playoffs or in contention for a spot. I still remember when the year we signed Hedo,the Raps had a game that was supposed to be on TNT for a Friday match vs the Knicks. After they got off to a slow start(not even that bad either)they pulled the plug on airing it for a Suns/Hawks game I believe,it was in January.
