I think that's the word that best describes how I've felt this year.

I know there's been a movement towards young players. There's been consistent minutes for them. But it's a little more than that.

It's the fact that Colangelo has yet to gain an extension. It's the fact that rumors have plagued about the sale of the team. It's the fact that on defence we're still not sure what we're doing. On offence too.

I would just like that direction, possibly some honesty. I'd like to hear, yep we're for sale. I'd like to hear, a frim date on the Colangelo signing, not just whispers or when a date on his future is set. I'd like to see a clear hierarchy on the court.

I'm tired of watching a sinking ship. Three years is too long.

The long, painful, losing season is taking its toll...

The lottery is coming, and a successful, promising draft after that. Sure, the lockout is also coming, most likely, but take solace in this: the last time the Raps drafted a super-star caliber talent was prior to a lockout...

I want BC to get an extension, Triano to get fired, and for us to get a high lottery pick. If all those happen then we will have a bright future...

+1 (but not to firing Triano)

Next year will probably also be a struggle.

Though, I really like a lot of the new players from the last couple of seasons. (DD, JJ, ED, AJ, JB, and I don't think we've seen the best of LK) It'll probably be another 2-3 years, but the future looks bright.

If the next owners are interested in winning.

if you have a source, that's very interesting. the g&m is reporting the opposite, but news is rarely news these days.

Telecom giant Rogers Communications Inc. (RCI.B-T33.72-0.22-0.65%) is conspicuously absent from the list of suitors interested in acquiring the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan’s majority stake in Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment.

High-ranking sources at Rogers say the company has “very little” interest in putting in a bid, even though there were reports late last year that Rogers was in talks to buy MLSE. The sources said Rogers walked away from any notion of buying the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Toronto Raptors and other MLSE assets last spring and never revisited the idea.

With all the talk of RF attending a Raptor game as a group...

Screw that, we need to gather for the draft lottery.
