    Management probably forgot to push the "auto-improve" button. That's all. Just write them a note to remind them.

    Come on seriously.

    I'll leave it open for now if people like, but I would also close it if that's the consensus.

    I know we're disappointed with the start to the season, but seriously you have to consider all of the injuries to Lowry when you're factoring the success of the team so far.

    Without Lowry they're essentially last year's team; a team we knew wasn't that great.
    Well technically it shouldn't be the same team. We got Fields (who is supposed to be our defensive specialist lol) and the eight pick in a good draft. Whom we never actually play and of course Jonas. Not to mention Derozan should be much improved.

    You said we're essentially the same team as last year without Lowry. Well last year we were among the better teams defensively in not allowing points. This year we're 29th in points allowed (105) and 26th in rebounding. Somethings wrong. However we're currently 7th in scoring this year and we're one of the worst last year. I'm just saying gotta let the fans react right now before we hit all-star break and there's no point in watching raptor games.

    I been thinking the same thing for the past few years. But Casey gave me hope. Now looking at it I think we have some people that should go and we have some keepers.

    oh yeah what about all those other teams that have lost to a Bynum-less Philly (Boston)? Or to the Dirk-less Dallas (like Lakers) or the the Love-less Wolves (they beat BKN and IND)?

    Even if they turn it around this season and finish around 42-42, this does not warrant an extension to BC. I am fine with keeping Derozan now, since he's shown a little more and practically untradeable for the time being due to the contract extension. we need to clean house.
    we should've just let derozan go and keep bayless instead of lowry too right?

    i just wish we never made those playoffs back when BC was first signed

    it made fans impatient, and put too much pressure on a team to win now, selling the farm rather than trying to develop

    and now that we have a team where we got young players, and have resigned others and are building the team the right way for once, like acquiring Lowry, people want to push the panic button

    who drafted Jonas?

    who traded for Lowry?

    who resigned Derozan for discount?

    so far what i see are 3 main core pieces moving forward which is much better than we have ever had back in Bosh/VC era

    who brought in Dwane Casey?

    to all those posters who already want Casey out after just his 2nd season. seeing all sorts of crazy posts throughout the threads about wanting to give Casey the axe or people who are mind boggled by Casey

    Create a poll on twitter to see how many people want out, send to all Raptor players as well if your serious, I was thinking the exact same thing (Word to word) and BC needs to go immediately. Im a huge disbeliever of him and always will

    Glad someone out there has the sense not to overreact. People need to relax and not break out the torches after every loss in which we don't have our best player active.

    Lowry - injured but extremely effective, team runs very well with him
    Fields - injured and ineffective, no denying it, has to regain rookie form to be worth anything to team, WE KNOW WE HAVE A MASSIVE HOLE AT SF
    JVal - rookie, growing pains
    Ross - rookie, doesn't get a lot of playing time, has to find form off the bench

    So the changes haven't had enough time to gel. You're not going to bring in 4 substantial new parts, prevent them from playing together because of injury, and see positive results.

    You just aren't.

    Panic button "deselect".

    I've felt that this team has needed a major overhaul for 6 years so I don't agree that this is a panic thread. I think this summer is a good time for the overhaul so am hoping for this team to not come together this season.

    Not to mention that at least 4 of our losses were easily winnable games we ended up losing by 1 or 2 possessions (Utah, Indy, Dallas, BK). Our record looks bad but we could just as easily be 5-3 or 4-4 even with Lowry's injury.

    Personally, us being not even 10% done the season, I am not panicking in the slightest right now, especially with the win tonight, and the tough schedule to start the season.

    you're very optimistic, nothing wrong with being pessimistic either.

    Jonas- rookie, who know what the future holds- what if he never develops a offensive game?

    Lowry- could be thinking about his way out in two years

    Derozan- he can't do anything in terms of wanting to go anywhere- we own his rights, he knows he got more than he would have gotten on the open market. I still don't think Derozan deserved that contract.
