Default When Will You Stop Supporting The Raptors?

We've had buckets of threads about every else under the sun in this forum, but never one about when will you stop being a Raptors Fan. We've had ones how can the Raptors keep me interested or what will it take for the Raptors to be a winner etc. etc. I'm curious to hear peoples responses about this side of story as well.

There are a lot of people who stopped being fans before the season even started. lol.

Bitching about the team after EVERY game win or loss = not being a fan.

I think most are psoitive sometimes. But it's funny that when someone on here is upset about stuff, they're sometimes looked at as not being a fan. Mind you some here are negative about the team 24/7.

I would probably stop watching if we went into full rebuild mode and played two seasons on New jersey level. Im not patient enough to wait five years to build a championship team. Id rather have a team that fights for playoff spot every year so I have something to cheer about and be exited about. Winning the whole thing isnt just such a big deal to me as it seems to be to lot of people.

Oh and I tend to root for the underdog anyway so I dont mind that we are not Cleveland. Its nicer to hope for us to win from underdog position.

if the way how the Raptors are playing is affecting the way you feel, then you are always a fan

You might be right there But for me watching the games (I tend to watch all of them) is bit hard due to time difference, so I dont think I would have enough fan in me to stay up to watch constant losing without no hope. Atleast the team we now have always has hope. They are so wildly inconsistent you never know who they are going to beat or lose to.

your asking raptor fans to be REALISTIC? haha.

To them "never" means loyality, but to the rest of the world and sane individuals who have some sort of historical perspective on how franchises are run...

"never" be obedience. That attitude of "never" which makes these idiotic raptor fans feel loyal is why the MSLE will continue to do what they do.


Why could the Raptors package something for one superstar on the eve of what should be their franchise player's decision making time.... because MSLE said

We dont have to. The fans come out no matter what.

Raptor fans- the joke of the nba.

It's a lot like loving someone. You have your ups and your downs, but the good times are awesome. Just because you get down on someone doesn't mean the love should be questioned.
