Why are Raptors fans so awesome?
 
So I have been around this forum for a few years, and honestly have never seen any annoying, ignorant, hateful or retarded posters associated with the Raptors. And there are quite a few of you here, according to the thread/post count you are only below Lakers, but your retard/logical poster ratio is in another dimension compared to those LA thugs. And I don't think I have seen any of you in red, you all have long green sticks.

So what is it about you guys that makes you so calm, intelligent, patient and all around awesome? Especially considering your team's track record from FO to players.

Is it the maple syrup? The bagged milk? Canadian bacon? Free health insurance? Noble French roots? I strive everyday to be more like you guys. You are role models for the way NBA fanbases should act.

Our collective wills have been beaten into submission from years of watching an unwatchable product.

Pretty much the only positive thing about being Raptors fan.

Canadians are known for their manners and level-headiness. And quite honestly this forum has a group of good posters. Just wish the actual team had half the talent this forum does.

Shhh dont tell another soul... we wouldnt want to have to hunt you down...don't tell any Americans, Germans, Britishers, Japanese, nor anyone....

We dont even tell this to the euro fans of Bargnani...

It is CANADIAN BEER ! Bier Canadien !

(which has secret ancient traditions and ingrediants that include Maple syrup, bagged milk, Back Bacon - and drank while knowing we have free medical insurance, passed down to us by generations of great French Quebecer brewing lore, a few Scots and Germans. Also mostly really clean water).

Who has 2 thumbs and is the most recognizable, charismatic, most dominant, Raptors poster on insidehoops. *this guy* I am the only known Raps poster that possesses a long red, stick, and it's a mantra I uphold with pride.

Probably cuz our team has no superstar. Makes it harder to be a "homer".

LA & Miami fans think Lebron & Kobe are Gods. We don't have that luxury.

:oldlol: Yeah, hard to be a homer with nothing to be proud of. Ironically i'm thinking back to when I first joined in 06 when we were a playoff team and we actually did have a lot of annoying Raptors homers running around. But they left when we started to suck. So the remainders of who is left are real fans, nobody would stick around for a team like this if they weren't. That's probably why the quality of the posters here is better than most.

I am proud of the team, I am just not proud of management/ownership. This team might not be the greatest, might not play well or might not have the chemistry they should. But with management not doing anything to help and ownership not doing anything to push it, how is this team supposed to succeed?

While thats probably true, it's also true what op wrote.

And talking bout myself as raptors fan, I am probably not as loyal as majority here, but I was a fan of toronto in VC days (yes that's bandwagon stuff), still a fan in CB days, but lot less and now with two Liths in JV and Kleiza I am even more of a fan, but it's not anymore about players at all, in all these years it grew on me. I am not Canadian but it being a team from not US is just another good reason to root for raps.
