Raptors Republic Android & iOS App

Hey guys and gals,

We're running a, how should I say, pilot or beta version of our new Raptors Republic app. We haven't made it official as we're still trying to work out some bugs while improving the user interface. So, its not the final version so expect to see more changes over the next while.

Anyhow, please feel free to download. Available on both Android & iPhone. It's absolutely free.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rsrepublic.app

iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-...6946?ls=1&mt=8

If we could ask a favour though. We're welcoming feedback and suggestions on perhaps things you'd like to see. At the end of the day we're doing this for you guys by making everything here easier available for you the user. Please send your feedback (Regardless if its positive or negative) to raptorsrepublic@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance and we hope you guys enjoy the application.

    Honestly, lets think for a sec. What could he say?
    Reporter: Kyle, what do you think of the trade?
    KL (Answer 1): It sucks, we traded a 4 time all star for a player that was hurt (he will not say that);
    A2: Fuck DD & loyalty, we got 1 of best players in NBA (again he will not say that)
    Maybe only logical answer:
    Hey, MU traded my best friend, 4x all star & a very loyal guy, but got back heck of a player. Season looks promising & you will get 100% effort from me as usual,
    I wonder why athletes find it so hard to be honest?

        Because various media sources will report one part of that quote, and others will report the other, and both will turn it into drama that isn't there.

        "Lowry says the Kawhi Leonard trade sucks. More on Raptors' dysfunction at 6."

        "Lowry excited for chance to play away from DeMar DeRozan. We get DeRozan's reaction to this betrayal up next."

          The first part (about missing DeRozan) is definitely how he feels. But if the last part (about being excited to play with Kawhi) isn't true, we're in trouble.

          Seems like the only person who's opinion he might care about is DeRozan. And DeRozan seems too bright to not take the full sound bite into context.

          If Lowry's goal was to avoid unnecessary media spin, his strategy was an epic fail.

            I don't think Lowry cares enough about what people think to make that calculation. The whole thing is just ornery Lowry being ornery cause he's ornery. Much ado about nothing.....

              Well I don't think Lowry earned a public relations degree at Villanova. I bet my bottom dollar he'll be fine when the questions become about basketball, and he'll get prickly again when the first spurs game nears.

              • Any PhD students doing something like sociology in here? Here's a free idea for a dissertation:

                Use this these forums as data to co-relate how much a professional sports team wins with how much its forum members bitch. I doubt the relationship is zero...but I'll bet it's pretty close.

                      Didnt you know? Conservative Albertan politicians always have regular meet ups at rodeos and farms near fence posts. Nothin like getting those work boots dirty and lendin a helpin hand.

                        1. It was a good move to get rid of Derozan, the returns say it all, HOWEVER, I wish to hell it would have been Lowry. He's a little piece of trash.

                        2. Lowry is a piece of trash.

                          Nice gesture by Lowry, but TBH this stuff is pretty much expected from superstar pro athletes these days as an unwritten part of their job and is sound PR image management. Not that Lowry cares about what people think or write about him. lol.

                          And 325 turkey dinners would cost like $1500 tops. I mean, is there a franchise guy in the NBA that doesn't give back to the community in some way? IIRC, FVV quietly gave out a few hundred turkeys and nobody made any big deal about it..... this is when he was on the bubble last year, way before he got paid. Nice gesture, though.

                            I like how sandwiched between your comment shitting on it was two flippant "nice gesture"s

                            Headline: man helps children
                            Commenter: he should be doing more!

                            How many turkeys is enough Turkeys? Oh and hes also giving his TIME..physically doing it. You have just as much time as Kyle Lowry. The playing field is equal in that regard. So I assume you volunteer over the holidays as well?

                              Year-round, actually, except for summer. I'm a volunteer tutor. Have been doing it continuously since university.

                                Nice gesture, but it's pretty much expected of smart guys like golden to help those that aren't as brilliant, to make sure people are reminded he knows stuff. Not that golden cares what people think about him, lol.

                                And I mean, except for summer? Thats like 9 months tops. Iirc, theres people who tutor year round and work more hours than golden.

                                Nice gesture though.
