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.

    Toronto Raptors who are still playing Alumni thread ....

    Is it funny that Knick fans and media are talking playoff with Jose Calderon and Bargs on their roster ? Didn't we want them shipped out of town ?

    Do you think Bosh can carry a Heat team on his back for 82 games and put them into the playoffs ... If he fails miserably will his HOF lock be questioned ?

    Vince Carter top 25 all time in scoring .. He is 145 points from 24th spot and King James is 20 points behind VC and so Vince Carter maybe bumped out of 25th spot after just one game in the 2014 season ..

    I don't think it's about JV taking the ring like he won it. Obviously it's not that for JV. He should and he will take it, because he's spent so much time here, that he will take it as a fan. Just like we buy championship hats and shirts, he'll accept the ring, because he's happy Toronto won it and some of his buddies won it. It's like a very rich fan getting a more pricy championship merch item, but for free.
    No. I think it's more that he contributed to a championship series (while actually on the roster!) and deserves it, no questions these kind of players deserve rings as much/more than Lin/Moreland/Meeks etc

    I have never heard of a player that was formerly on the roster of a winning team turn the ring down. Anyone? JV would gladly accept his well deserved one imo
    Furthermore I believe it's customary for all players in that position to be offered one but stand to be corrected. Do the players still vote on it?
    Varejao didn't accept the ring when Cavs won in 2016.. He was moved from the Cavs to the Warriors that year and his Warriors team lost. He eventually got a ring in 2017 though.

    JV had more win shares than Powell, OG & Gasol. And way more than McCaw. Those wins ended up being critical to secure homecourt over Golden State and grab that convincing game 1 win. It set the tone for the series. JV clearly deserves a ring - I hope he accepts it.

    Guys, why wouldn't he accept it? They're worth like $20,000, its a very nice gesture and still a memento you can keep tucked away and show your kids and tell them the story, or pass it down to them when its worth 6 figures.

    We picture these guys all obsessing over the "narrative" so much. I mean, if the owners of my old company lay me off, and come back later and give me a big fat thank you anyways for my service, yeah, I'm gonna thank them and accept it and continue on.

    He showed up to Game 1 against the Magic.. and was rooting for us. I hope he accepts it too.

    If I was JV I wouldn't want a ring. Not in a spiteful way or anything, I just wouldn't want it. I'd want to earn it.
    His part in wins allowed Toronto to have home court advantage against Philly ..

    I know what you're saying but he was traded in-season and contributed to wins that contributed to their season ending position in the league and playoff season. Was also injured in contribution to this chip and didn't ask to be traded. Earned this ring more than Eric Moreland or Jodie Meeks for instance.

    I'm sure he'd like to also win one where he's playing in the finals but he deserves this one.

    I hear both sides. I hope the team offers one to every guy who was on the roster this year and also wouldn't be surprised (or insulted) if several of them turned it down.

    They actually make a tone of rings.. it really depends on MLSE/Masai and who they want to give the rings to and how many they want to make. I forget which team it was (thinking Cavs) but they made 200 rings for their team and employees.

    I do think JV, Wright, Miles, Monroe, Malachi and Brown will get rings (they all played minutes for the team this year).

    I doubt ex players that played last year but not this year will get it (DeMar, Jakob, Bruno, Bebe). Or even coaches (Rex, Stack, Casey).

    I do hope they give rings out to Matt, Jack, Leo, Eric and Sherm.. even Rod deserves one. The "Raptor" should definitely get one too.. Herbie Kuhn as well.

    Why would you think that Casey or even DeMar would get a ring? That would be insulting to them even, what would the inscription be, you weren't good enough to win it here?

    I think I've read that organizations give out a lot of rings to members of the team - however most of those rings aren't the diamond-encrusted versions that appear on the news
    Yeah, they're a much cheaper version. Still a nice gesture
