View Full Version : Do refs hate the Raptors?

I was just checking up on the Raptors game and saw the last play. Demar looked like he got mauled on the last shot attempt, yet the refs no called it. I know that refs tend to let contact go on the last shot, but this might be another time this season where the NBA office will say that the refs messed up, again. I think the office had to apologize at least twice to the Raptors, specifically, for serious, game changing mistakes at the end of games. Why do you think the Raptors are getting shafted this season when it comes to calls? It is easy to say that every team gets bad call, but it seems especially bad for the Raptors.

The raptors don't have a true star that's why the refs hate the raptors. The nba and the refs love there star and especially superstar players

yup this will be the 3rd apology but certainly not only the 3rd time we havent gotten a fair shake.
the apologies are ******** it doesnt change the fact that these games have completely destroyed our season and taken all the confidence out of our team time and time again.

if we dont get the 1st pick im becoming a heat fan

it's ridiculous. and it's not just the days the league apologises to us either. A lot of other close games have had similar situations that didn't happen on the last possession.

True, maybe Gay would help them out with that but idk. I can't imagine how their fans feel seeing the NBA officially apologize for screwing them over. I would hate it if that happened towards my favorite team, multiple times.

Because the NBA refs like to call the game according to Vegas odds and the league secretly has a plan to gift OKC a high draft pick(Raptors pick traded from Houston to OKC) in the lottery so that they can compete with the Heat in the future.

01-30-2013, 11:48 PM

The refs don't hate the Raps, they just don't care much. The worst is when Toronto is playing a bad team, some refs look so bored and only blow the whistle when they feel like it. It's like they think they are worth more than the players and don't feel the need to bring their "A" game unless there are better teams involved.

Next Lebron my ***. Hes not even close. He has all-star potential. Jabari is younger and even more talented. Last time they tried to hype Harrison Barnes too and look at how his draft fell.

Last nights Atl vs Tor game again featured more bias against this team . If Derozen hadnt
been fouled perhaps they might have won. Lets face it there is a bias in the NBA
against the Maple leaf on the uniform.
Refs arent disciplined for ignoring obvious fouls instead the league pays lip service
by apologizing for their bias. American born players avoid Toronto if possible. Its not the
money . Stoudamire Camby, Mcgrady ,Carter plus others one guy left because his kids werent getting enough American history leaving for the Bulls[ Currie]
The team doesnt acknowledge this but look at their draft choice of players from other lands.
Yesterday they traded a pla yer away who was happy in Tor for onewho will leave at the first opportunity.
NBA didnt work in Vancouver and will fail in Toronto because the bias will not allow them to be a winner.

When David Stern goes to sleep, he enters his little room with all his posters of his favourite superstars in the league. After kissing them all good night, he lays in his race car bed and looks at the schedule for the next night, and you better believe that if you are the Raptors, Pacers, Bucks, Jazz, etc... and you don't have a player that makes David Stern's poster collection, you sure as heck are getting the shaft from the refs, especially if you play Miami, OKC, Lakers, etc...

But it's not some wide conspiracy among all refs. A very untimely missed call...that's probably all it was.

That's the 4th untimely missed call this season by the refs which would have the Raptors in contention for the 8th spot half a game ahead of Philly. Raptors broadcasters said it best...."Coaches and Executives lose jobs because of this nonsense."
