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.

    Looks like you may have been right all along.
    That's what i like to hear.

    I've been watching him a long time. I know he can play, shoot and defend. All he needed was CONSISTENT playing time. He's getting that now.

    Anyone still think Delon is better? lol

      Dude, I'm sold. Making his 3's and finishing at the rim over NBA length were my main 2 objections and he's erasing those. I'm buying FVV stock now before it blows up like Bitcoin. Please don't be a bubble. lol.

        I was nto impressed with F VV early in the season, he was very frustrating for me to watch, Seemed to press too much and took bad shots. This latest stretch has me feeling better about him. I don't see him as a starter in the NBA, but he is starting to find his rythm as a back up with regualr minutes. I hope he keeps proving me wrong.
        exactly how I feel. He wasn't very good at all early on. Didn't shoot well and couldn't or didn't make the right pass. But lately, the dude has been phenomenal. His shooting has been terrific and his passing ability has improved significantly. His defence has been especially surprising. He gets at it and works to stay in front of his man.

          Lol I still really like Delon and hope he still gets minutes and we don't give up on him too early but yes you were right, Fred looks to be better after all lol
          I relish negativity and disappointment. It is not healthy. Somebody buy me a pony.

            I'm amazed his defence has looked so good for such a little guy. Hope he keeps it up.

              Blake Murphy wrote a piece on Fred for Vice Sports about a week ago. Don't know if it's been posted.

              Casey raves about VanVleet's errorless play, trusting him to play eight of the team's 24 "clutch" minutes this year and more fourth-quarter minutes than anyone on the team.

              On defense, VanVleet's timing in help is impeccable, and few players on the roster dig into post-ups like he does. He's also high-effort at all times, and those things in concert help make up for the size disadvantage he's at most nights. The Raptors have their best defensive rating with VanVleet on the floor, he's a part of three of their four best defensive fivesomes and five of their six best defensive threesomes, and only Aron Baynes has been on the floor for fewer points per-100 possessions among qualified players.

                  Nice "problem" to have. FWIW ESPN's RPM has Freddy ahead of Delon. BBRefs BPM has Delon ahead. Delon's strengths are more obvious. Harder for us average fans to see some of Fred's - can't hear him quarterbacking and communicating on D.

                    Not to be a voice of reason but remember how much the OG thread blew up a couple of weeks ago when he strung 2 or 3 good games together? Let's see if this lasts. That's the great thing about this roster..there are so many young guys trying to prove themselves that someone is always stepping up.

                        He better be the 3rd string PG when he returns.

                        Maybe package him along with JV for something that can actually help this team.
