Exactly.


Again, I wouldn't shed a tear if it happened, but why the @$#% would we let him draft for us, trade a future pick, and tie up most of our cap space just if fully prepared to send him packing after a 2-7 start (with a tough schedule when finishing 8th by the end of a season would have been considered an accomplishment and great place to start improving from). Kind of a difficult (and not very attractive) situation to bring a new GM into. Seeing as most GMs want to leave their own stamp on the roster, you can pretty much expect for a new GM to either A) give up on every bit of potential we have (by dealing Ross, Ed, and/or Jonas) or B) to give away the bulk of our veteran talent (likely Jose, Amir, Lowry, and/or Bargnani). "B" could be pretty ideal, but without fully owning our own pick, stripping the team of all its talent could be somewhat risky with very little pay out.

Even if Landry was healthy, Casey would still be putting this 2 PG lineup on the floor. Good hire BC!!

What does BC think when he's sitting at home watching these games? Does he realize he's assembled a team full of scrubs? His ego must have taken a huge hit over the past few years.

Surely MLSE must know they can't trust BC to make the next big decisions for the franchise.

Maybe Drummond will go off for 20/10 against us while TRoss rots on the bench. That and the Fields signing and a 5-15 record should be enough to fire him in another week or so.

The fans need hope MLSE. You have to fire BC now. He has been a complete failure for 7 years. Give the new GM the time he needs to evaluate this team properly and make the right moves. Clean out the front office.

$5 million a year is a bit of a picker upper and it buys a lot of self-esteem courses.

You fire him for a couple of reasons. One, to avoid having him do any more damage to the team. Two, and this shouldn't be discounted, to "punish" incompetence and failure rather than rewarding it.

As to a new GM, I think most guys who are new assistant GMs would be ecstatic to get a head GM job, even if in a less than ideal situation. It could be worse. e.g. the Bobcats last year. We do have vets who could help a veteran playoff team, e.g. Jose and Bargnani, and they might each fetch an unwanted contract and a pick.

The longer Colangelo hangs around the riskier it gets that he goes all out to save his job, e.g. working out a big deal for someone like Wilson Chandler.

Anybody listen to the post game radio shows. People must be calling for BC's head by now.

We need to keep the media pressure up.

Send Doug a hundred emails saying we hear a rumour that BC will be fired in 48 hours and ask him what he knows. He will say that he talked to sources and there is no chance of anything happening in the next 48 hours. Done deal.

Just getting reporters to call team sources about such 'rumours' will put the idea in their heads and have them thinking about fan opinion and what needs to be done.

If bc does not get canned this year i am going to stop watching or following anything raps related after this season. Maybe earlier because i doubt i can watch this trash team any longer.

Better yet, lets give BC a vote of confidence. Guaranteed firing soon after.

The almost universal (well, board wide) shift to FIRE BC has been fun to watch. You folks are paying attention.

He needs to go, you look around the nba and every single team looks to be improving on some level and does seem to have something on the horizon for the future, or they are a winning team.

The raptors have been hanging out in the basement for far too long with really nothing on the horizon to get excited about.

Sad sack of an organization.

Pity it didn't gain any momentum prior to the draft, when some of us were pushing hard. I thought at the time that firing him pre-draft might be a way to appease the roundball gods and rebalance the cosmos by repeating what happened the last time we fired/hired a manager pre-draft and the new guy came in with the number one overall. But alas, ownership toyed with destiny and the result is before everyone's eyes.
