We think players don't want to come here without a premium on their salary because we are in Canada. I don't think that is it. Players, with these non-consequential apologies as proof, are not coming here because they know Raptors players are not on a level playing field.

Look at the body language of our players. They've had enough.

i'm not even mad at that bump. We can't inbound a ball properly with two attempts and the entire court going for us.

For the Philly game on Friday, with only five secs left it is and always has been a good place to get an inbound pass, the receiver catches and just stands at the edge with his arms out holding the ball over the edge of the sideline. The only way the opponents can get the ball is by a foul and by the time the refs can/should call the turnover for a player being trapped, the five seconds are up.

The point is that if there is no push, the play is successful, but with the refs not calling an obvious push out of bounds, the obvious foul, the ball gets turned over and we don't get the two shots.

Regardless of anything prior or what people mumble about about playing differently, the correct call was not made but if the refs make the right call we would have won ... again. It is another game cheated out of the team due to the bad refereeing.

These acknowledgements would mean something if anything was actually being done. Its like yeah sorry but were just going to keep doing it cause fans are dumb and theyll watch regardless.

If only that were true.

I would be perfectly fine drafting Shabazz....or Noel this year.

It would be much better than I expected from a team who's talent usually has them and should keep them locked in the 7th -12th position in the draft.

They owe us about half a dozen wins now.

In all seriousness, this was the worst officiated game all season. I'd say at least 80% of the calls were wrong and all three of tonights refs should be fired.

I knew after 9 minutes that the raptors were going to lose this game. I was so pissed off by the end of the first quarter. Even when they ran the lead up to 19 I knew the Raptors were losing this game. The reffing bias was so fcuking blatant it make me want to puke.



That said, game comments. Casey, if you EVER see Jose torched by the opposing PG two times in a row, get him the fcuk out of there. I don't care if he has only been in for a single minute. Yank him. You waited too long again tonight.

T-Ross. Yes. DD. No.

We need a SF who is willing to shoot a 3. Maybe that will have to be Bargs as I'm not seeing anything from Fields, and there should be ZERO thought by Casey or BC about breaking up the Amir-Ed Davis combo at the 4.

Once again, just to reinforce my disgust, this was the most shameful display of officiating this season. In ALL of the games I've watched from all of the teams in the league.

Something really must be done about it by the start of next season.

Bring in the unlimited use challenge flag. And use the **** thing. This should have been a 40 point blow out for the Raptors, and would have been if it was called fairly.

Meh I'd still rather get it in 2014 and get a REAL franchise player.

Way too obvious. Insanely obvious.


The only way the Raptors can win games is to shoot at least 10% better than the opponents. Often it will take 20% better for a W.

I will say that this loss is at least partly on Casey. Jose was getting torched in the third and he left him in waaay too long. Then going with the 2 PG crapola at the end. That should never happen again. Jose can't inbound, Jose can't shake coverage, so despite Jose's team leading free throw percentage, just keep him off the court in those situations.

Also, I should be saying this every game, because for the last dozen or more it has been happening.

Ed Davis. Get some help. Get some Practice in. Do whatever it takes. Just start making your first free throw for pete's sake already!!! Gaah! I just don't know how you can have a FT average of more than 50%. I can't remember the last time I saw you make the first of 2 attempts. Fix yerself!!!!

We should get 1 more ping-pong ball per blown call admitted by NBA.

OKC did get another ping pong ball.

Either way, the Raptors shouldn't care. It's not like they're going anywhere anyways. The Bulls need the win much more, so they can be in a better position when Rose returns.

Of course....we'd all prefer that.

But in reality again we would most likely end up drafting 7-12th.

The previous poster said us getting #1 overall.

So if ended up with the #1 pick this year that would just be gravy because I certainly don't expect our GM to be able to spot hidden talent at 7th pick AT BEST by next year I'm thinking we would more likely be 9th and above in the draft. Personally I prefer the odds of one of Shabazz or Noel becoming a more impactful player than Colangelo trying to get lucky and fish out comparable talent at 9th or so in next year's draft.

Trust me I'm not a fan of winning this draft because this does feel very much like 06' all over again good talent but great talent in the very next one. Just I would pray that should this happen that we draft an "Aldridge, Rondo or Roy" type of talent like I believe is in this draft and not another Bargnani.

Yes the refs blew the game and overall the calls in general have gone against the RAPTORS but our coach has lost more games than the refs.
