Yes, please provide examples of this supposed reputation because up until this incident they've been regularly commented on as being great fans. Fans that travel and support their teams, there's been 0 incidents in away cities or anything. There's been no violence or anything up until recently. Please go on about this supposed reputation that's been building.

Isn't it too soon to be joining the "hate Canada" bandwagon that includes Philly & MKE fans :lol:

Downright disrespectful, scumbag behavior that should not be defended by you nor anyone. You want them to win that bad you’re celebrating an injury or defending those who celebrated it.

Fans didn’t cheer until they were told too, that’s crap they didn’t wanna do that. And here we thought that Canada was full of people with class and integrity. Intolerable behavior they showed at KD.


Stop being a troll.

People are the same everywhere. Every fanbase has douche bags. There's nothing special about Raptors fans vs Celtics fans vs Jazz fans.

Remember when Jazz fans booed Derek Fisher for leaving to get his daughter better medical treatment? Remember how there have been racial slurs slung by different fanbases? Are those fanbases all scum? No.

**** people exist everywhere. Give me a break.


First of all watch how you talk to me. I’m not being a troll.

Utah is notoriously known for behavior like that.

People are not the same everywhere. What about Raps fans verbally attacking Steph’s mom?

You saying people are jerks everywhere is excusing this type of behavior. This exactly the issue with this world. No accountability
.

Yes, I'm sure that toronto's variation of oxygen makes people more likely to attack an athtletes mom. This is clearly a "toronto" problem. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Cousins out here bitching about how he's treated like a superstar when the only reason you're getting this kind of overreaction is because of your status as a superstar.

Many players chimed in, even from different sports.

All of the talking heads (Jim Rome, Kellerman, Stephen A Smith, etc.) gave their take on it.

This got a ton of coverage. It might not be covered like 9/11 or something but its just basketball. For a basketball related event, this got covered about as heavily as anything.


It was a story the folowoing day of course but then they let it go. Is it suprising to the GB that most of these takes defended the Raptors fans and gave them the benefit of the doubt under these conditions?

It's definitely not the same narrative that is trying to be painted here.


A few hundred Raptor fans cheer Durant's injury
Raptor fans: Heeeeey! The actions of a few does not reflect the views of the many

A small percentage of Realgm posters keep posting about the issue
Raptor fans: Heeeeey! The GB is blowing this way out of proportion!

If you want people to accept that in any large group of people, there are always going to be some jerks salted in, you are going to have to accept that in any large group of people, there are always going to be some jerks salted in.


KD's achilles thread has 1200 posts, this one has 800. Considering that KD's achilles injury is 10x more important than this issue here, I would say yes, this has definitely been blown out of proportion. The salt is real.

We all know this board has overblown the entire thing because Raptor fans dominate the board, and most of them are overly sensitive. If this was committed by other fan bases (which it has many times and is well documented) it wouldn't have received near the attention.

I post on several other basketball boards and while the matter was discussed, they all agreed there would have been the exact same fan reaction in every NBA arena given the EXACT same circumstances where emotions were running wild. They also agreed that no fan base should ever have to apologize for the behavior of a percentage of idiots, since every city has them. I am in no way condoning the disgusting behavior that several fans engaged in, but the General Board is turning it into a circus because of their obvious disdain for the Raptors and maybe even Canada.

Reality is that all this crap we've witnessed would happen in any city. It's human nature and it's disgusting no doubt. But to taint an entire city and organization because of a few dumbass puckhead turned raptors fans is just ludicrous.

Ya'll think this dude been following the raptors for 20+ years? Nope. Probably started following them once they became relevant and especially after the 2nd round of the playoffs. This overgrown man child and the others waving do not represent our team or city.

As a diehard raps fan, I despise this dude but I understand the severity of the moment and the effects of alcohol. I truly wish ppl acted with more class.

Right right, you forget the vancouver riots?

There are some really trashy fans ALL over Canada. It's a human thing, not a city thing,

Please don't make idiotic assumptions with a skip bayless avatar. Not doing yourself any favors.

Lol. That's not what a cheer sounds like. And the commentators even EXPLAIN that the crowd is reacting to the replay they are being shown (that we can't see) They didn't like the replay and are expressing that dislike. If you can't even tell what is happening when the commentators are explaining it to you, I don't really know how to help you.

The commentator said "the crowd's reacting to the replay," not that they disliked a call. And they were cheering. I could literally loop the cheer and re-upload to Youtube myself.

Oh, and don't think we'll forget about them physically assaulting Kyle Lowry either. Ignoring it won't make that go away.


Right. He said they are reacting to the replay. That’s what the noise at the five second mark that you think is a cheer is referring to. It’s not a cheer, it’s a grumbling crowd that didn’t like what they were seeing on the replay. but even if it were a cheer, it’s reacting to the replay they are seeing on the screen of the play, not the image we are seeing of Kawhi rolling around on the floor.

Who’s ‘them’ that physically assaulted Kyrie? You mean Mark Stevens? So you meant to say ‘him’?

All is fair in war.


Except this is not war, its a basketball game?


Except its not just a basketball game, its a potential first championship for a major basketball city/country.

Its not right or tasteful to cheer an injury, but understand their perspective.


At the end of the day, freedom and lives are not at stake in sports. I understand the importance though but it doesn't make it right to be disgusting human beings even in instances of actual war. Is rape, torture, killing innocent civilians etc. right in war as well?

I understand you're upset, you have a right to be.

But the Toronto crowd redeemed themselves after the initial reaction, everything was in the heat of the moment.

Where do you think arena based entertainment originated from?

Heat of the moment, I understand. Fans waving goodbye to a man laying on the ground who suffered a severe injury is not in the heat of the moment and not understandable. Fans chanting in excitement f**** KD when it is clear the man was injured is not okay. That fan who wrote that disgusting snapchat caption is a scumbag.

The classy fans I respect. Like I said in previous posts, I do not like to generalize. There were disgusting actions from people that day, and respectful actions as well from the same fanbase.

Imagine your son or daughter breaking their leg in a sports game and having opposing parents cheering and laughing at your child.

I don't care that sports evolved from arena based entertainment..Why do you think we dont fight to the death anymore for people's enjoyment?
