Raptors Smith: Raptors to have one of the worst media seats in the NBA this season

Slow day...

Quote:
Mini-rant

Speaking of questions, remember when I was asked last week about any changes at the arena for the coming season and I said I didnít think there were too many?

Well, thereís one. A big one and itís a bit personal so hang with me here.

There is no more courtside seating for the print media, they have redesigned the sidelines to sell more high-priced tickets.

Now, I donít have a big problem with that, itís the way the league is going, I think there might be two gyms around where we sit between the benches on the sidelines, weíre either on the baseline, in a corner or up near the top of the lower bowl.

The Raptors? Well, they donít care a lick about us and donít really care about league rules, it would seem.

Because they did not think this out and because the facilities people and team marketing people here and at the league level donít care and didnít think, we might end up in corner of the bar at the highest level of the west end in a Leaf Alumni lounge that will be inadequate the Nth degree.

League rules say top of lower bowl; these will be Ė without question Ė the worst media seats in the NBA and itís all because no one at the marketing or facilities level of MLSE cares about the league rules or had enough forethought to make things right in the four or five months since they decided to make the change.

It will make our jobs harder, it will go against league rules and I hope someone pays a hefty fine if they donít figure it out.

End oí rant.

I guess he takes no consolation in the fact he's closer to go outside and have a butt.

Anyone noticed how Casey has been calling Doug "Eric" the past few days during interviews?

Eric Koreen is the guy with the weird voice. Having a weird voice myself, I hope not too much is made of that.

Doug is in the media all the time. He sounds a little gruff, maybe a bit nasal. Koreen has been on the radio from time to time and has a squeaky little voice.

Using his article to rant about himself basically, sweet. Better then what he usually provides I guess.

Hearing Koreen in a scrum yesterday, I can see some similarities in the timbre of their voices. Both are pretty nasal. If Doug got particular whiny and took on a higher pitch he could easily be confused for Koreen.
