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.

  • There are a lot of favourite things with the Raps being in the finals.

    1. The Raps are here long before the Chowders.
    2. That Kyle Lowry who plays hard all the time ...and had to listen to snide shit about being playoff Lowry has burried that deep and has a chance to win it all.
    3. That you do need different tools for every job. We all owe Dwane Casey a tremendous debt for instilling the expectation that the Raps expect to win. Every game. It was a seismic shift in attitude. A change in culture. There were pratfalls along the way in the playoffs of course. The Whiz sweep and the inexplicable choke job against the Lebrons. They donated blood but the payback is that this is a franchise that now expects to win.
    4.Minuscule but grudging acknowledgement that both Snooch and The Claw Reborn were right in their steadfast resolve that the Raps wouldn't get to the finals with Demar. I love DD but there is just no way this happens with him instead of Leonard.
    5.That almost 10 million people tuned in or streamed a Raptors game in hockey country. 1 in 4 people watched this.

    Time to complete the final chapter tonight. KD or no KD...

    • Another thing I love is reading " Sportsnet announced Tuesday that it set another Canadian record for an NBA game with an average of 6.4 million viewers for Game 5 of the NBA Finals, a 106-105 win by the Golden State Warriors at Scotiabank Arena that cut the Raptors lead in the best-of-seven series to 3-2 " The broadcaster says audience levels peaked at 8.5 million at 11:32 p.m. ET, as the game was coming down to the wire ... These numbers don't even include Canadians watching the ABC feed .. Wow ..

        Better yet, the overall ratings are 4% higher than last year...when LeBron was the competition instead of the Raps. And it doesn't include hundreds of thousands of people at viewing parties across the country.

          Not so hot in the USA. Here's a headline after game three:
          TV Ratings: NBA Finals Hit 6-Year Low for Game 3


          ABC's broadcasts have pulled consistent numbers thus far but remain down about 20 percent vs. a year ago.
          https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/li...5-2019-1216243

          Six years ago was Spurs v. Heats - showdown #1. This year is the first time in eight years Bron isn't in the finals. Plus KD has been out and so this isn't a shocker.

          Here's the catch, fast forward to last game. KD returned and the Warriors were facing elimination and so:
          Monday's broadcast drew the fifth-highest preliminary rating for a Game 5 of the NBA Finals since ABC began airing the series in 2003.
          a 34 percent improvement over the average for the first four games.

          • I'm still so weirded out about the radio. I went and grabbed a pita for lunch today.. and flipped on the radio thinking it'll be some boring hockey or baseball talk as usual.. and it was basketball everywhere. On both stations. Just so weird.

            Hope this feeling lasts. I know Toronto is a huge bandwagon city so I doubt it will. But it's been so surreal.

              It will not last. its the biggest ongoing story in ALBERTA right now. The bandwagon is extreme

              That said, even if 10% of the kids stick around, thats a huge win for canada
              It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

                  One of my favorite parts of this playoff run is.... us. WeTheFans have showed up big time, whether it's in the forums, at Jurassic Park or even at Oracle..... Raptor fans have dominated the post-season. And the rest of world is simply in awe.
                  Damn. I jinxed us. Lol.

                              • One of my favorite parts is that guy claw reborn who spent hundreds and hundreds of posts telling us all if Nick Nurse didn't bench FVV completely, he's a bigger moron than we all thought and should be fired, perhaps murdered.

                                There's a saying out there like "when everyone around is an idiot, maybe its actually you"

                                BUUUUUT I digress
