Default Raptors forum vs RealGM

I was wondering, is this the place people go to who are fed up with RealGm and their crazy ideology on Casey, the Refs, Derozan etc...? Just in time for the playoffs I've been banned from there, and I'm happy I did because that place is just a sickness, and it seems like more level headed people are in here. The only reason I was on RealGM is because they have a tonne more people, thousands posting... but herd mentality.

So the question is, why not be at a place where thousands more are posting, is it because of the above? Fed up/don't like it?


Cheers

Realgm is great as a source but reading the posts there is hilarious. They're nuts over there and they lock threads left and right and going by some of the posts they ban people often. There seems to be a lot less freedom there.

About 4-5 years ago I typed in "Toronto Raptors Forum" and was brought here and I haven't left since. Since then I have checked out RealGM forums but it just seems like that forum is littered with illiterate and generally childish people.

Same here, I was brought here by a Google search. I liked it then, I still like it now. No reason for me to go to 2 forums.

Smart marketing btw

RealGM is the Niagara Falls of Raptors online community. Raptors Forum is more like Humber River.

Too much nonsense over there on realgm. Here you got a good group of posters that keep things civilized (most of the time ) and only one crack pot to deal with (kidding JB, your great!)

Its nice to have a civilized argument to where you don't have to go through 5 different pages to find the response of the person you were having the argument with. That and you can almost never have a civilized argument on RGM due to the mass amount of posts and because most posters are under 20 and base their opinions on the most recent game instead of the big picture.

Some posters here do too, but there's a fewer quantity, but again not having to look through 10 pages 10 hours later to respond to someone is a nice plus.

RealGM is simply just too crazy. Pretty much everyone on this forum is great. Now if Raptor123 was still here then it may be a different story

"most posters are under 20 and base their opinions on the most recent game instead of the big picture."

That is exactly it, they base it on the last game and that turns into Fire Casey with 5 games left in the season or Derozan sucks or Grievous 'Trasquez'. Anyway, I'm here to stay, I prefer civilized people and not overpopulated forums

And no marketing lol, i have a love hate relationship with realgm. i'd rather the good guys from there come HERE.

Same. There are some good posters over at RealGM. The problem is they get burried amongst the masses.

At least in this forum I've not seen the hitler card played yet. The OJ card once... but not the hitler card.

yesterday I got banned from that place for saying that there is a difference between pop, brooks, spo and dwayne casey. the ban reason was something to do with racism. funny is that what I meant by saying it that dc is just not intelligent and smart enough to succeed. truth hurts, especially in the crunch time.

RealGM is resourceful, they usually get news first because of their large community of Raps fans. If you're browsing for info and occasionally insight or jokes from posters,it seems good for that. As far as being a member and having discussion I think the conversations in threads here are better because there are less trolls due to the less amount of members in general compared to RealGM. I do think they have some good topics for threads but the member contribution seems to just throw them of course easily,when I browse by and read as a guest.
