Default Why is this guy representing the Raptors at ESPN?

espn is having these daily live chats focused around the ongoing games. usually there's a media (online media usually) member from every team, and they answers questions about the game and more.

In today's chat there this Sam Holago who completely destroys everything toronto, except for Bosh. He keeps saying that he thinks Bosh will stay, but 90% of the questions are trade scenarios (he likes half of them), and the rest is bashing bargnani, turkoglu or calderon.

Than you wonder why we get no respect south of the border. How can you ask for respect from the us media, when your own people piss on you in public. Even if he hates all of our players except Bosh and derozan, why wash the dirty clothes in public?

Just a few snippets:

No, but Bargnani would have been declared total bust and moved far down the bench on any other team by now.

Sam Holako (TrueHoop Network): I agree!

I'm with you on Turkoglu Sam... just a terrible move there.

[Comment From JoeJoe: ]
Raptors more talented than the thunder? What NBA are you watching?

Wednesday January 6, 2010 8:09 Joe
8:09 Sam Holako (TrueHoop Network): I never said the Raptors were more talented, who would say something like that?

Comment From London JLondon J: ]
Sam... when you say Bargnani is doing great... you must always, ALWAYS specify TONIGHT.

Wednesday January 6, 2010 8:18 London J
8:18 Sam Holako (TrueHoop Network): HAHA, I'm biased against Bargnani, so when I say he is playing great, everyone knows it isn't a sweeping statement, lol.


Comment From fanfan: ]
sam do you see the raps winning a playoff series this year

Wednesday January 6, 2010 8:32 fan
8:32 Sam Holako (TrueHoop Network): I don't


[Comment From EtanEtan: ]
Sam I'm not a Bargnani fan, I wouldn't mind seeing him Go, and the Raps bring in a young Def/Reb Specialist like DeAndre Jordan. Leave the Interior scoring to Bosh What do you think/

Wednesday January 6, 2010 8:38 Etan
8:38 Sam Holako (TrueHoop Network): And another rebounder. I like this line of thinking Etan

Pretty ridiculous if you ask me, compare Barg's numbers with other centers and aside from rebounding he compares favorably with most of them, not to mention he's been improving quite a bit on defense and finally seems to be buying into being a physical defender. Either this guy doesn't watch many Raptors games or he's not a very good reporter, all he does is agree with fans throwing out random statements...

my point is that whatever you think of Bargnani and hedu and whatever, as a raptor fan you should be more careful about bashing them in the eye of the US fans. I'm all for objectivity, I like our tv guys for at least trying to be impartial. I think that's the best approach, but I would be sooo pissed if devlin goes on TNT in the playoffs and starts critcizing us (fairly or not) ....

his last comment shows how much of a bonehead he is, recycling the same old trash.
bosh really is our only interior presence, and not a huge one at that. Bargs is a foul-line three point line centre.
completely clueless.

Simply shameful, I'm honestly just fed up with the lack of respect we got south of the border. We'll just have to go out and take it apparently.

as I said before, that's what you call a power forward.

all judgments of Bargs should be suspended until he moves to his natural position as PF.

We're fans, critiquing and judging is the only thing we know how to do.

Bargs is starting and is the second option on offense, sometimes the first - he's subject to judgment.
