There are always sunday afternoon games. How is that shitting on Europe and the rest of the world?

The team caters to their own city, not the rest of the world.

It is actually an advantage to the Raptors. Opposing teams are usually informed how awesome night life in downtown Toronto is, and if they take the bait then the Raps will get the edge the next day.

Why would you ask a question and then disregard every answer?

You should have titled this thread: "Complain with me, I'm tired of watching the raptors get raped during one of the few games I don't have to stay up for."

It has to do with TV, I believe, and windows in which they can broadcast games so they don't overlap with games that are nationally televised.

Also, playing games so early really helps the Raps after the visiting team had a night out in White Vegas.
