Score Raptors blogger Scott Carefoot quits, says team has ‘sapped my will’
 
Quote:

“This franchise has finally sapped my will to give a crap about it.”

While it came at the end of the second paragraph of his blog post, that was the real kicker from Scott Carefoot’s farewell to Raptorblog post from last Friday.

Carefoot is leaving The Score, the company he has worked for since 2008, and with it, he leaves RaptorBlog, the blog he started in 2002 to help get his foot in the sports media world and provide online coverage of his favourite team at the time.

His post resonated online as we get into what looks to be another dismal NBA season around these parts. Despite it seeming like Carefoot’s job, technically he was always a digital product manager at The Score, and writing about the Raptors was a sideline passion project, which clearly, he had lost his passion for.

I'm not going to pretend that I follow this guys blog but I know exactly where he's coming from as I'm sure most you do so I thought this was thread worthy.

Lol idk but it takes a lot of effort to write a blog, guess it got to annoying with the team going no where.

actually i think if you read the whole article he started the blog because he was a fan, it got him into the media business too, but doing the job wasn't his actual job, so you can say he is or was a true fan

Yeah I read that, either way I think it was because blogging was tough, and losing just made it harder. Idk how big a fan he actually is though. You have to like a team fairly much though to do something for 10 years IMO.

Ya, he threatened to sue me because I was posting entire RaptorBlog articles here at RF instead of using fragments. I admitted my guilt. Benzo went to bat for me. Totally harmless on my behalf, but Carefoot felt the need to take it a step further. Regardless, I've let bygones be bygones and he's got more pressing concerns since his son Max was diagnosed some years ago with autism.

Well, it's kind of easy to see his point, unfortunately. :(

On losing his passion for the team, that is...

BigMan93 11-29-2012 01:15 AM

Superjudge 11-29-2012 01:18 AM

meh, told you all 5 years ago he was a hack....

numbah eleven 11-29-2012 05:20 AM

Jesus, people follow their football (soccer) teams no matter what. Well you can always write about a winning franchise if your local franchise doesn't live up to your expectations. Just business. And yep Euros are soft, right...
