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.

    The Raptors need a doctor, not a nurse.

      Perhaps the raptors will be...NURSED back to health?

        He better impress cause his offence didn’t impress me last year. The moment I see iso DeRozan Lowry ball and it’s not followed by benching I am calling for his head
        Offense wasn't the issue. They couldn't stop Lebron at all in the playoffs.

        Also every single team (barring Warriors) plays ISO at least a quarter of the time...

            One thing that I think bears repeating is that there is no logical reason to conclude the team needs a major makeover. The problem appears to be limited to playoff performance specifically, and the playoffs are different. Maybe Nurse will be a better playoff coach than Casey was, and the rest will stay the same. Remember, it will now be Nurse talking during timeouts and halftime. If it truly is his offensive schemes that have paid off so well over the past few seasons, I don't see why players wouldn't accept his authority. Maybe they don't need a Dad coach anymore and were already secretly wishing Nurse was drawing up the ATO plays. I dunno. But nobody else does either. I like this choice myself.

              Offense is literally the least of the problems. In fact..its not a problem. In game adjustments, defensive strategy, key rebounding, and composure when the lights are bright are the issues

                I was pretty pumped for the wildcard factor of the Euro coaches, but Nurse is a good coach. Agreed we're going to have to wait all the way until the playoffs to know if this has made a difference.

                  The biggest problem is mental toughness.

                    I think it's safe to assume that the offense should actually get better. That is, having Jonas more involved, and playing in the 4th quarter.

                      Yep which ties into all those things. Casey did us no favors with things like miles on love, random bebe cameos, and insane waits for a timeout

                        Watching Cleveland flame out in the Finals pissed me off one last time. 7 games vs Pacers, 7 games vs Celtics, swept by GS - but 4-0 vs Toronto for the 2nd straight year. Changing the coach was not an optics move.

                          Yeah, they went 8-10 vs the rest of the league including a bottom bracket team in the playoffs...and 4-0 vs us, the 1st seed

                            You know what I'm really hoping for? I'm hoping that there was a bit of discord amongst the coaching staff, where like maybe Casey was super jealous of Nurse, so any time Nurse suggested a substitution, or some innovative inbounds play, Casey would just say "Here's a better idea: Let's do what the head coach wants to do. Who's that again? Oh that's right, that's me not you. Okay, ISO time! Give it to Demar and dribble for 23 seconds!"

                            Because if that's not what happened every single time, then why did we hire this guy.
                            lol other scenario include:

                            Nurse: Hey I think we should double team Lebron, based on the number of seconds remaining in the game, he would want the ball in his hand more then passing it and the likelyhood it will be a good pass to a good shot is smaller then..

                            Casey: Hey Hey !!the only double double I want from you is a cup of coffee from Tim's!! Now lets let our Rookie OG continue to guard one of the best player's of all time and live with the consequences. We cant second guess ourselves! so go and pound the rock if you must!!

                            Nurse: okayy..your the boss (takes a shot of whiskey from the flask in his jacket) and mutters "this is gonna end ugly..."

                            Another one:

                            Nurse: Casey we need more defence from our backcourt and perimeter oriented offence to stop the Cavs comeback..

                            Casey: nah put Bebe in, I got a good feeling about it.

                              I am not against Nurse or with him until we see the team playing, but, I would really like to know why we did not hire Messina.

                                Regular seasons are getting more and more meaningless. I'm tired all of a sudden
