Who say their not gonna support Raptors because we are going shit, or to those fans who say if things don't improve they wont support them anymore.

Thats bullshit! Your not a supporter anyways, we are going shit at the moment, yes, and yes we should be doing better.

But there is no point getting all shitty and saying you aint going to follow the Raptors anymore if things don't improve.

True supporters will Support their team, through the bad times and through the good times.

So to all those fans, you gotta either grow up and support the Raptors or piss off because your not a real Raptor fan anyways, and the Toronto team is better off without you.

Im still here.

Being bad like this gives us a lottery pick and the chance to aquire future talent

BC knows that if he doesn't fix the team it will hurt his chances on getting a job in the NBA

I still support the team, but I find it really really embarrassing that we are worse than the Bucks and the Knicks when the media was labeling us as playoff contenders during the off-season. We can't even say "Oh, it's because we have had a really tough schedule" anymore because we just lost to a 2-24 team.

Also, anyone remember that year where we lost like 14 straight and had to sign Rafer Alston to a ten day? Those were dark times. I'll never forget that one b/c I remember we beat Minny to end the streak and I was there. I miss those times.

I don't know if it was the expectations, that three game winning streak to start the year, or what, but somehow this is the worst i've ever felt as a fan of this team. different people somehow keep becoming the same ones of year's past.
it's like some sort of curse or something. players who've played and gained reputations as hard workers somehow become lazy, and inept. GMs who've made bold....no, i'm not going to say colangelo is a smart and capable gm. comparing him to babcock, maybe, but what championships did be bring to phoenix?
but back to my point, why the fuck does this keep happening. on paper, we've got talented guys, but on the court, a bunch of spare parts.

as a fan, i'll stick around. but devoting my time and energy to what looks to be a lost season, again, stings more than the 14 game losing streak claud alluded to above. 13 years and one playoff series, and they don't even try hard anymore. i don't blame anyone who's been around this team since day one 1995 for wanting to say enough. a decade of shit is alot to take.

The more this team loses, the bigger chance I take a bus to Toronto on the 4th and get liquored up at the game and heckle instead of drive down and cheer. Maybe I'll even dress up like Sam Mitchell.

oh i'll always be behind the raptors. They're MY squad and that's all there is.

However, this season is a laugh. A real hoot. I'd put this up there with some of the franchise's biggest failures for sure. The expectations, the hot start, the talk.... it all plays a factor.

So because we're paying money to see the games we watch we're not entitled to voice our concerns over the entertainment we watch? Some people/writers are obviously over the top in their cynicism, but if fans (fans that really want to see the team succeed) are upset at their team, you're probably going to hear it, especially considering the expectations that were placed on this team this season.

i might whine and complain alot, but i just think that this team should be much better than it is at this point... is it too much tinkering? not enough? new players not fitting in? Old players not fitting in? no matter. I love the Raptors and will cheer for them even if they lose the rest of the games this and next season... it's not about whether we love or hate them, the fact is that fans will often have deep passion either way about the team they cheer for, ask red sox fans, cubs fans, bears fans and yes, maple leaf fans, or worse Winnipeg Jets fans who still think the team is coming back! try having that discussion in a winnipeg bar and you had better agree
