Just let the topic die off already, who cares if the general board hates raptor fans. Most secretly or not so secretly did anyways, now they have a good reason to.

Don't think so, nor do I think the OP knows what he's trying to convey.

That doesn't represent the level of class of our fans, but it's still an impressive spectacle.


It's multiple things, though I concede the thread title is slightly clickbaity. The General Board crowd warrants it, IMO.

1) Look how many fans across the country are watching - this is a new phenomenon and deserves attention on its own.

2) With all the bad vibes about Toronto fans, based on two small events, I offer this as a counter to generate good vibes.

This shouldn't get merged to the "Raptor fans cheering" thread because it has nothing to do with the Durant injury. I wanted to show that Raptor fans are mobilizing across the country to show support to the team, and to counter those who say "trash fans don't deserve to win" - which has been said plenty here. Look at all those fans across all those venues and cities and tell me they aren't putting on a great show of support, worthy of being rewarded with the team's first Championship?


so you admit that this was a flex thread

Just having a lot of fans or rowdy fans doesn't make them good fans. You can post pictures of the crowd in the arena but they were still cheering injuries and knocking people out

What's there to admit, when it is out there in the open and obvious?

Are they groups of raptors fans gathered to attack warriors fans if the team loses? I think many are not fans, just getting intoxicated and looking for trouble.

Simply, they are treating this as a national team competing in a world cup. Granted it is just North America so its really lost on most people. Its not an international test even. It is a league finals. It's giving them a reason to party. Stay classy Canada.

The VanVleet Watch Party warms my heart TBH.

He't the best thing to happen to Rockford since Cheap Trick.

When are they going to talk about how a kid was promoted/demoted over 20+ times from the Raptos 905 G League team.
It's an amazign story of not giving up and parlaying that into a 20mil deal.

Some footage of Freddy driving back and forth for the 20th time from the from the affliate in his broken down old car, spend a day on the NBA and then having to drive back 90 min to Mississuaga the next day. The Finals would have a feel good hero everyone could root for.

man do i wish he had taken and nailed that 3 when Khawi got doubled instead of passing to Lowry.

Rockford needs a hero. FVV is a great role model for those kids in the area.

I hope I'm soon able to exit at Belvedere Rd road to a sign that says

Yeah, not sure what that means either. These aren't victory parties, they are VIEWING parties. Since when does your team first need to be a winner before you can show your support by watching?

All you haters need to pay attention to this. You can cry all you want about raptor fans but Fred is a great story. His father was killed when he was 5 and he had a tough life but he made it and is a great human being. Lots of love for the boi!

I have about 50 people on my Facebook that have never posted anything basketball related or talked about ball in person but yet every game they find themselves downtown. It has turned into a circus with maybe 3 in 10 being actual Raptors fans or NBA fans in general. Even my mom is talking about Raptors.
When masses gather, there is always going to be idiots involved as well. Real fans can't even afford tickets lool
