They paid their hard-earned f'k'n'g cash, please don't use that cliche, half of the douches in the building are watching porn all day while stealing time from their employers. Whenever I hear this, I wonder how much effort YOU are giving at your job.
Cut out the sanctimonious BS.
If you want your team to win, you lift them, you don't sit on them, you don't hate on them. You are the sixth man they all need. YOU. So why not show a little g-d effort and support them.
Haven't you heard players rave about how the home court support matters, how you want to scare the visitors shiatless? Well, how scared is the visiting team when your loudest boos are for your own guy.
As someone said earlier today, a lot of fans WANT Bargnani to fail so they can boo him like some prophesy they need fulfilled. That's the difference between Toronto and a real sports town. The team has won six of the past seven, has a pretty good chance to win the next three, and the fans won't get behind their players.
But you keep moaning about all the years of losing despite the fact the team is turning things around and yet many of you want to fight yesterday's battle.
The Raptors need you to fight today's battle. There is at least a hail Mary's chance of making the playoffs, like the late rush of 2002-03, and many of you would rather engage in team-destructive behaviour.
That's why this is a city of losers. Mike Murphy says, "Hello losers!"
Excuse me? I work really hard to pay for my education and whatever side money I have I will purchase a ticket to go watch a Raptors game and if I wanna boo a player for not giving effort than I am entitled to that you have no say in that matter...that is a very ignorant thing to say dagger...look I get what you are trying to say with home court advantage but Bargnani has spent the past 7 years playing with no effort, this is a growing problem that has been happening for a very long time.
You are missing his point. Read it again.
I've seen examples of it (i.e. workers disengaged, not working at the best of their abilities) in the corporate world many times. People are doing jack @$@% and getting paid well by the company. They are still there, while others carry their load. You continually ragging on him and boing him, will not change a thing.
