Unhappy Things You Hear After EVERY Raptors Loss

I swear sometimes it is like ground hog day. After ever loss it is the same song here are some of my personal favs. feel free to add you own

Fire Sam. Sam Can't coach, _______ would be better coach Etc

Some comment dealing with PG play

Defense and the Perimeter D especially

We need to make a trade

Our wing players suck.

I could go on but feel free to add your own. I understand people get upset but some of it just starts sounding like a record skipping. for you youngster out there that is what they had before cd's and Ipods.

but what can you do?

Today's world is all about "results" and "what have you done for me lately?"

Love it!

Can't agree more with your comments. I know this is a forum and forums are for talking but its' the same crap and most has degraded from intelligent basketball banter to whiny bitching and member bickering. I find lately all i feel like contributing is agreeing with posts like this.

I'm not surprised. Ever since the Raptors first seasons fans have been the same. The Raptors look mediocore and now all of a sudden Bosh is leaving, Parker is old, Kaps sucks, Bargnani is a Bust and on and on and on. You think this message board is bad sitting in the nose bleeds is worst. When their is a big run Mitchell is the best coach on the face of this earth and Moon is better than Iggy.


I've come to a conlcusion and realized that Raptor fans are just Bi-Polar. Their is no other explanation. When the Raps are running a real high people talk about championships in the near future and Bryan Colangelo should replace Washington on the 1 dollar US bill. Hey screw In God we Trust its In BC we trust. When I see losses like the ones last night I'm not too surprised. You have a team with a new post player and two new points that never played a lick of NBA burn. What do you expect this team won't peak until January at the earliest.

Its a tough road and results like this will just happen. Just hope the Raptors stay close to .500 by Christmas and they'll still have a decent season.
I hate to say it but the bottom line is alot of Raptor fans aren't educated enough

While I'm not disagreeing with you DVS, show me a team who's fans aren't the same way? The reason it so noticeable here in Canada is because of our large fan base. Raptors fans on the internet might be a little more vocal then opposing team supporters. Our problem is that most Raptors fans live for the present and don't consider the future. Eventhough I'm impatient at times, our fans definitely lack patience.

well, i like the fact that we have a place like this to vent after a tough loss. I know i have watched this team strive for mediocrity for the past couple of seasons and i have not seen improvement year over year that would take us up the Eastern conference. the talent is available and the guys just seem to be in auto-pilot mode right now. as a long time coach, i know how easy it is to blame the coach in this situation, but i do feel that Smitch is either very close or has lost total respect in the room. any one of us could step in feed the media the same drivel night after night. when is he going to get mad and tell his players to play like men and call them out. sometimes that stuff should be in house, but sometimes a coach has to show some real emotion before the team gets it. i like smitch, but his in game management sucks and always has.

There are lots of team's whose fans aren't the same. New Jersey, Atlanta, Milwawkie etc... those teams dont' get the same fan support we do(i.e. sellouts and merchanise sales) to offset whatever complaining they do. They just don't support their teams. Toronto fans support their team at the arena, then go home and bitch on the forums

I'll give you that Doc, in terms of internet fan base the Raptors are the head honcho's in that department. Just by sifting through the amount of Raptors Forums their are over the net and what Sports Writers say about the Raptors fans.

The routine gets a little old is all. Instead of complaining I'd wish fans would ask questions and debate. It gets old having to virtually defend Bargnani's every move and be called "a Bargnani lover" when all your doing is displaying the guys strengths etc etc.

i hate to say it, but remember the team is based in toronto where they are looking desperately for someone to win something since 1967! expectations are high as winning is the only option that is acceptable. look how little support the argos get on an off year. fickle fans cost winnipeg the jets and toronto fans expect to win. pretty simple as i see it.

Or perhaps you're just showing trends that have become apparent.

i.e Our 2-3 guards have sucked.

Sam has sucked.

etc.

Reality is a bitch.
