I've found the "fans" on here unbearable the past month or so and haven't posted or read
many threads as usual. The team and its bleak short term future is already enough to handle
can't take the incompetent fans over taking the good ones on here.

So, let's see, we're like top-10 in attendance despite having missed the playoffs for, what, six years now? And despite having been horribly mismanaged during that time.

No, actually, we're incredible (arguably incredibly stupid) fans for putting up with the **** we do. Most other fan bases abandon their team when their results and prospects are this bad. And what the **** is there to be positive about, pray tell?

If we had a good team to cheer for then we wouldn't seem so negative and gloomy. We have a **** GM and a pretty crappy roster other than a few bright spots but no real future either.

We don't have many fans, just mainly drama queens.

Of course, you left out all sorts of other options. For example,

#4: Enjoy the game don't get your shorts in a knot about a lot of things you don't have any control over

#5: Use some time for self-reflection--ask yourself why you spend so much time carping and whining about people you don't know and especially ask yourself what this is doing to you

Option 2: Trash management / our roster on a regular basis because we're fed up with the performance of this franchise over the years. Our leadership has been incompetent for years and it's frustrating. Hopefully the new ownership group will be able to steer things in a good direction this offseason, but we'll see.

Option 3: Blind optimism!

Most of us are going with Option 2 these days. It's just how it is.

People who say this have no idea and probably never visit any other boards or website aside from this.

Enough of us tell it like it is anyways. We say what we see out on the basketball court. Nothing is being made up here. Don't be calling us haters just because your favourite player/boy is playing like garbage and we rip them.

Maybe not the most horrible, but pretty bad.

The day we sided with management and the media against Vince Carter was the day we deserved mediocrity for the next decade.

The media kowtows to management and we eat it up.

Hard to make sweeping judgements about the group of fans as a whole. I think we have a large online following. Many are very cuastic and hateful, but I think that may just be standard for the internet. Hyperbole reigns. I do find it funny when people online talk about all the support they get. I mean, are they the people that are going to the ACC and turning up? What's hardcore, to read and write on a forum everyday, or to drag your but to the ACC and support the team. Somesay supporting the team is counterproductive, others may point to the fact that if we want to keep it here, we need to keep the support up, or they'll be quick to say it can't work in the market and pack it up.

For the purposes of entertainment, I can't tell you I don't enjoy the games, either on TV or the roughly once per year I travel to the ACC from the maritimes to watch a game. That's why I go and watch. Even though the ending of a lot of games have been tragic, it wasn't like it was clear playing Indy in the ist game that we were playing a much better team. I'd say, despite the record, teams get a challenge from us either at home or in their building. There are always one or two that get away, in a bad way.

So, I think we have a lot of people that follow in their way, whether it be online, at ACC, in their home across the country, and I think there are probably a few "horrible people". You come across them and wonder is it this team that draws them, or are they just here for the audience or do they get off on trolling and online confrontations?
I recall hearing about the Jose death threat, I recall hearing about a fan giving Acy a hard time for taking his son out for a cupcake before opening night. But I don't think that should be applied to the whole, as on the whole, I think we have great fan support. In a large following, there's gonna be a few A -holes. That doesn't mean anyone critical or overly homerish, just means there are gonna be people who are likely just A-holes.

You mean a fanbase who thinks a random dunk by the 12th man is noteworthy?

You mean a fanbase so "passionate" it makes "Fan Fiction" not once, but twice?

I actually appreciate the fans of this franchise, but the kids who inhabit this place are horrible.

I also want to point out, ive been lurking here since about 04, anyone who uses the excuse that its the team being terrible at fault must be new to this. When have the Raps been great? Negativity has always been part of this board, the issue is lack of creativity or substance. Go read any thread, or the numerous duplicates of threads, its the same narratives from the same people about the same things. Its not even a Raptors forum anymore, its a chat room based on anything you can vaguely link back to MLSE/Raptors.

we have the most passionate fan in the league, that includes a few knuckleheads here and there. Much better than the apathetic/bandwagon fans surrounding many NBA franchises.

I'm amazed this team is actually averaging over 18 thousand fans per game. The fans of the raptors deserve a winning team
