You all make me laugh...

Now don't get me wrong. I like it here. However...

You all need to relax. Yes, ALL of you... The Hedo fans from overseas, the "Trade Bosh Now" fans, the "BC is God" fans (which i think i'm one of) and of course my personal fav.... "why am i on this board when i think this team is total shit" fans....

I agree that the Raptors are a good team on paper, and it remains to be seen as to how they'll do this year, some of you agree, some don't. But let's predict the future of RF for when the season is underway. If we're successful i imagine it going something like this...

First 10 games Raps go 7-3
--> General consensus? Nice work. Keep it up! BUT remember last year how we did great and then only won 33 games? BC still had plenty of time to fuck up gloriously!!!

20 games in.
Raps go 13-7
--> Wow, were pretty decent. But hey, Triano is still fucking up cuz... cuz... we'll JUST cuz he's not Greg Popovich and isn't possessed by the ghost of Red Auerbach!

40 games in.
25-15
-->This team is still shit... why are we still fans? FUCK MLSE!!!! But don't worry, theres still plenty of time to shit on Hedo and Bargs' contract and OH of course, Bosh is leaving for New York because they're #1 in the conference.

80 games.
--> 4th in the east, going up against a weaker team in the 1st round, w/ home court advantage. The Raptors are clearly a 12th place team that got lucky. Oh did i mention the team is still shit?

Realistic #'s? maybe, maybe not.
But I know that come the half-way point of the season. One, or more, of you will be changing your tune.........

SO, relax, quit it with the "predicting stats" threads (which are the most pointless things ever) and lets wait and see how shit unfolds.

I know it's the offseason, and we NEED shit to discuss cuz for some reason the only good sports are during the winter, but you all need to chill.

I agree with some of this but you need to chill. Isn't this a place to discuss/critique the Raptors, not their fans? Its probably not the best idea to come in here and criticize people because its not going to change a thing and I'm not sure you're going to accomplish anything more than creating arguments, not discussions.

I can agree with that. To many people here are saying this team is still shit, BC is despreate we are gonna suck. No one on this board is smarter then BC so realisticaly he is the only person that realy knows whats good with the Raptors.

Although i am sick of writers churping about how he is in "desperation" mode when really these are all smart calculated moves that will hopefully pay off come November

...oh an the predict the stats thing is kinda stupid and pointless beucase its just a complete guessing game based on factors that we dont even know yet (like how will the 7 new players actually play here)

I'll just copy and paste that.


But...are you suggesting we talk about nothing involving "What ifs" until the start of the season?

in terms of fans, you forgot to mention one type in particular "i have nothing better to do than complain about other fans", fans.

add yourself to that group.

Besides, the people like you that worry more about what everyone else is doing as opposed to what really matters are in a group of their own.

It's that time of year again.... where we have no lives, and we shouldn't do that or this. Kinda reminds me of that dude who called us all losers, and snapped on the whole forum.

Hey Dutches,

Nice thread!

I will agree that in the short time I have been signed up people here can get way too defensive about players that would not acknowledge you in public lol.

If you don't like what is said about something don't take it personally!

I rip lots of players and Gm's and such but don't really have any ill will towards any of them personally . I guess I have a bit of a complex since the Vancouver team was ripped away. Ohh i take that back ! I wish ill will on Heisley and that good for nothing POS David Stern.

Have fun everyone!

Yeah, I probly shouldn't criticize people, but hey, that doesnt stop everyone else from doing it. I haven't been in a "discussion" yet on this board. All people do here is argue....

People like me? thanks for proving my point... Come on Zach get real...
Basketball is what REALLY MATTERS? I'm sorry but basketball is a hobby/distraction from the real world.
