THIS IS EXACTLY WHY RAPTOR UNEDUCATED FANS ARE LAUGHED AT... Boston, LA, Chicago, and hell even Washington fans are WAY more realistic than the Raptors fans...What commentator was it that said raptor fans are delusional?
I'll take our fanbase over 90% of the other teams any day of the week. As delusional as some think we are, at least we're better then most Maple loaf puckheads in this city.

calling them uneducated is an assumption as you have no basis or standardized system proving so. misinformed I believe is more appropriate....

Hope they have the Drive to beat Orlando today.
Um it wasn't the fan base that was the problem in Vancouver. It was that slimy fucker Heisley and that piece of dog shit David Stern that fucked us out of the team. The Vancouver Grizzlies drew a hell of a lot better than the Memphis Grizzlies and that is a FACT!

I'll admit that I may have jumped the gun on Jose if you'll admit that your criticism of Bosh is ridiculous and unfounded.

Deal?

There are different kind of fans TORap ... the fact Babyface is not so optimistic, it doesn't make a less fan than you. More than that, just shows that he is more concern with the team performance and he wants to get better. Personally, I am more moderate than both of you . I really hope for this team to glue together. I don't like that much Turk, but this started before he joined Raptors. Now that Turk is a Raptors, I want him to help the Raptors in crunch time but I don't expect him to carry this team anytime. Also, I have doubts about Triano ability to keep a NBA team mentally prepared for games, although I agree he is very knowledgeable when comes to basketball.
Is not about doubters or believers, is about facts. And despite the complains some fans make on forum, we are here for the same reason: we want to discuss about Raptors, the good and the bad, in the end all of us wants Raptors to win badly.

Bosh is good when he's aggressive and attacks the basket. But I don't like when he feels the need to force an impossible jump shot when he could pass it.

Just to clear here, I have no problem with "realistic" fans. I've known most of the mods on this site for close to what? 10 yrs now? Since we were all at ESPN.. and most of them are just that "realistic".

I consider myself one of them although you may not think so.

I've NEVER said that we're headed to the finals or that Chris Bosh is going to be the MVP of the league.

What irks me is when people make absolutely OUTRAGEOUS criticisms (OMG!! Bosh had 35 + 15 but he SUCKED tonight!! YAY Bargnani!!) and disguise it as "realism".

That's not realism. That's called being a tool.

I didn't say this either.

So why do you feel the need to bump this thread after each loss?

Acting all cocky?

I was refuting all the people who were saying that this team was garbage because we couldn't win some meaningless pre-season games.

You want my expectations? I'll lay them out again for you.

Playoffs.

45-50 wins.

Another dominant season from CB4.

A credible job from Triano.


That's it.

Do you have a problem with any of that? Anything you'd like to refute?

Maybe.. we'll see. Still way too early to tell.

We definitely have potential. As pessimistic as I am even I see that. But as of right now, Triano and Jose need to get their shit together.
