Or..we can wait for the first pick and build like OKC.

Rogers will soon buy the Raptors anyway. Hopefully, they care more than MLSE.

Can someone tell me exactly what people were expecting Raptors to be? Most people said they were a bottom 5 team which is where we are right now and that's with bunch of injuries and having guys like Gaines forced to take the game winning shot.

Not to mention your idea is just dumb. Things all of a sudden won't get better if you don't go the games but I am sure Raptors would get moved out of Toronto if that were to happen.

Ye exactly, if everyone stops going for games, the team will eventually re locate

No we will not relocate, we will get a new buyer hopefully plus there's no way this basketball team is moving from toronto because we have the largest fan base. So unless you support the direction of this current team which is downhill I suggest fans to take action and stop attending games.

this is the stupidest thing i have read in a long time. and i read some stupid shit.
this isnt the leafs, we arent rolling in cash.
it isnt as if the guys upstairs arent trying to do well... we are just not lucky... landing a prize free agent here isnt just going to happen with the snap of a finger.
people stop attending games and this team is the next vancouver grizzlies.

Yeah let's all stop going and maybe the team will move to the states. Give me a break...if you're a Raps fan you're a fan period. You support the team during the highs and lows. Go Raps.

I love that the big complaint with Bosh was that we were a treadmill team and needed to blow it up and Colangelo would never do that blah, blah, blah and now that they have, people are complaining just as much about not being competitive.

Not only that they think that losing 7 of our regular players and relying on a D league quality call-up as a backup point guard still means we should be beating down teams. We had 7 freakin' bodies last night, hit zero threes and still almost pulled it out.

if we keep up this level of competitiveness (lack thereof) we'll have a shot at the number one pick and at the very least it looks like we're going to have a very good chance at landing a top five player. that's exciting and i don't think enough raptor fans are acknowledging that this is a distinct possibility. if irving declares there are three game changers in the top five, IMO. this season could be the best thing to ever happen to this team, if they really are committed to sucking (short-term).

i really believe we can build around the young guys we have here, and when you add a potential game changer this year in the draft i think you're looking at a core that can be not only relevant but very competitive going forward. this team is in a very good position in terms of cap flexibility, and after next year we're not bogged down by any albatross contracts. plus, i like the culture that's being established here. when our full squad was here and we weren't dressing three to four d-league players on a night we were staying competitive with some of the best teams in the league. these guys are scrappy, and i like it. to be honest this is the most excited i've been about the future of a raptors' squad in a long time, maybe since vince and t-mac were coming into their own.

In the same breath praising our young talent (Derozan, Bayless, Davis, Amir).

Look fans , no one is forcing you not to go to games. This is just a suggestion from a concerned fan. So stop saying this is a dumb idea. If you want to waste your money then go ahead but if you are smart then you will take action and stop going to the games UNTIL we see so changes.

The point is that are seeing changes. We're building pretty much from the ground up instead of a bunch of stop gap fixes to keep the team middle of the pack and fighting for the 6-8th seed every year.

IMO they need our support more than ever. We need to let them know we have their backs even while they shuffle the deck and experience growing pains.
