Overall, my point is:
The photos of these half-naked women should not be in the 'Daily Raptors Dish'. They should have there own thread, 'appreciation of female beauty' perhaps, just like the men have their own thread and are kept separate from the 'Daily Raptors Dish'. It really doesn't make much sense to put them in a thread titled 'Daily Raptors Dish'.

I'm not sure I follow you on precisely what is so objectionable.

Trane said its okay to critque these women, so excuse that portion of my statement...

you're missing the point.
it's not about liking these pictures, or not liking them.
It's about where they belong.

Fact: The thread without the girls generates absolutely zero discussion.

The SSG was originally added as it is an extension of The Sun, one of the major papers covering the Raptors. The RF Girl was added at the request of our posters. Does it make sense? No. Does it matter that it doesn't make sense? No, it's just for fun. I consider it akin to a bunch of guys sitting in a locker room chatting it up. Real GM does the exact same thing too and they're a lot stricter than we are here.

Quite frankly, the whole thing is a pain in the ass. Not only the complaints about the having the girls to the complaints about the girls selected, but I assume most fail to realise the amount of time that is put into it every morning, from scouring the web for the articles, copying and pasting links and titles and finding the best or most relevant quote from each article.

I find it a little odd that you've waited two years to voice your opinion and you'll have to excuse me for finding it somewhat hard to take you seriously as some of your posts are pretty off the wall.

I see your point Kuzzy, and I find it odd that those threads end up being all about the pictures, with the overall debate sometimes becoming pretty brutal. If this were not the internet, but an actual gathering place, I would definitely share your objections. I think it would create an environment that undoubtedly would be a barrier to enough people to make for a less interesting mix.

At the same time I recognize the obvious enjoyment that those pictures bring to many people, myself included on most days, and it ties into the dish theme, since the women are indeed "dishes". Would it help if the threads were closed to comments once posted? Maybe that would allow for the balance of Raptor information to take enough precedence over the smut, while allowing the private enjoyment of the smut for anyone who likes to do so all the same, without drawing such excessive attention to it. Does that work as any kind of middle ground?

I ask not as someone looking to find a middle ground, but rather as someone who has always disliked the concept of the Sunshine Girl as a means to selling what should stand upon journalistic standards and not titillation. I think the spirit of the thing has always been a little more sophisticated here though, although that sometimes gets lost in the drool. I personally have less of a problem with the more professional models that have been instituted, as I don't get the sense that some semi-predatory Sun intern has sweet-talked them into a situation where they have very little control. With the professional models, the models have a significant amount of control and talent at their disposal. To me - that is always a much happier situation that leaves little for me to resolve. It's the equivalent of the women that make up the dance pak. Now if all we got during games was Jack Armstrong looking at the dance pak and yelling - HELLO - it would be horribly wrong. But with a shot of some suggestive strutting by young women with some degree of talent to go with their looks, a single HELLO, and back to the actual game at hand, the overall package is hard for me to argue with.

Someone should write the Raptors and ask to have the Dance Pak removed since they have nothing to do with basketaball.

Alright, this is what we do then... We scrap the "Daily Raptors Dish" idea and just make it the "Daily Babes Dish (with a side of Raptors news)". Then the thread will totally be babe related

2 years? Well, the discussions have progressively become more and more meticulous and, consequently, triggered me to post this thread. I just need to voice my opinion, that's all.
I could care less if you took me seriously or not. From what I know, your opinion means no more than mine- regardless of how 'off the wall' you think my posts have been.
If no action is taken, than so be it.

lol!
Unfortunately, this is what the thread should actually be titled.
If one where to skim through it, I'm pretty sure they would guess it was titled, Daily Babe and not Daily Raptors Dish

In all honesty, I do kind of find them annoying at the games.

In between breaks, I like to talk to the people around me about how the game's going, or certain players or whatever. So yeah, the constant need to be in my face does annoy me.

You're one of those people that talks to random people around you and can't seem to do that with beautiful dancing women around you on the floor?

Just look away? Wow i've never heard of anyone complain about the Dance Pak before.

Dance Pak and cheerleading in general is not needed in sports evens, even all that stuff that goes on in courts during timeouts
