Post#1 Hatred Against Our Players Has To Stop (Bargn
Fri Feb 22, 2013 8:21 pm by Rapsobsessed7

this board is literally becoming unreadable from what it used to be. Now after every game/missed shot theres "Derozan is a scrub", "Derozan is garbage", "Gay sucks", "Lowry isnt aggressive we need a new PG" and so on and so on. Its one game, no human being is perfect, every basketball player is going to have a bad game here and there but this overreaction is literally giving me a headache.

The next game when these players play good, "Gay is our franchise, playoffs here we come", "Derozan is a stud", etc, etc. Doesnt make sense.

I remember the day Gay hit the game winner against Denver, the next couple games people were complaining about him WHILE we were on a WINNING streak. How does that make any sense? You expect him to make every shot? The same people who do this are the same people who after a good game shower them with praise, it doesnt make any sense to me, this bipolar fan base needs to change.

Next the Bargnani situation:

Heres what i dont understand, sure we want him traded and i bet you Bargnani wants out of here as soon as possible but guess what? He needs to raise his value in order to get something good back. Thats what i dont think many of the "fans" get. Why are you going to boo a guy and shatter any confidence he has left? You need this guy putting up numbers for many reasons. 1. To increase his trade value and 2. were going to need him down the stretch to make the playoffs (to the disbelief of many).

Hes a member of this team and someone who im sure if affected by the booing as any of you would be if you were in his shoes. He took 1 shot that he missed and another at the end of a shot clock fading away... i really dont understand what you wanted him to do there? Hes on our team and he needs to play well so everyone gets their wish, cool it on the booing.

The game thread is a prime example, its literally unreadable at this point. Its not all posters either, theres some good ones left but theres some who just need to stop overreacting after every little thing.

Peace.

I'll boo him till I lose my voice! I'm sorry did I hurt his feelings while he's making millions? Everyone knows he needs to raise his readers value cuz as of now a sack of potatoes is worth more than him. If you're getting booed at, guess what, play harder and redeem yourself!

Andrea is a multi millionaire, a #1 draft pick that never lived up to the hype, and quite frankly, looked completely disinterested on the court at times the past 6 years. The fans at the ACC have every right to boo. Andrea is a man, if he wants the fans to be quiet he should start playing like he gives a damn.

It absolutely doesn't. You have every opportunity to express your displeasure as a paying customer. Boo him every single time until he shows some effort out there, because as of right now he is a sulking puppy and it's not impressing anyone.

Look, like him or not no player deserves that from their OWN fans.

Being a fan of a team doesn't mean being a fan of every player and every decision the team makes. You boo because this front office doesn't do anything unless there is an overwhelming negative response.

Stop telling people how to express themselves as a fan.

First of all you have to boo! Mlse has to see that the fans are sick of all this! If (Please Use More Appropriate Word) fans cheer on for horrible players and horrible performances, this team is going nowhere. Frankly if I'd beat the crap out of BC if I ever saw him on the street. BC is making me hate my home team and Barfbag is making me hate pasta (primo pasta)

Everyone is entitled to their opinion on how the team is run or how they play. However, these so called 'criticism' from regular dimwits like us isn't going to help the team. If you want to see the team win, you support them. That's what being a fan is all about.

I think Bargnani is going to be traded, but the boo is making Toronto a classless city. I am not sure if players want to sign here.

His piss poor play isn't the result of the fans. However, the negativity of fans is the result of his play.

I don't believe in booing players personally, but I wouldn't blame fans for booing Bargs.

There are also way too many of these threads. Every bum thinks his unoriginal opinion is so special.

I've always hated comments like these. It's stupid from every angle.
