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.

    Bruno most likely burned his bridge when he pulled the "don't you know who I am" stunt with the Brazilian national team and got sent home. Raps organization definitely soured on him after that incident. It probably made them realize that the coddling they gave Bruno was the opposite of what he needed - it made him feel entitled. Bringing him back might just rekindle all of that and make him stop working his ass off like he's doing now. Either they mis-calculated on how to handle him, or maybe he was just way too immature to begin with.
    I never heard of this incident with the national team!!??!!? =O

      Sadly, this happened....

      After a solid debut for the Brazilian senior men’s national team, Bruno Caboclo’s career on the FIBA circuit has gone off the rails quickly.

      Reportedly upset with a substitution in the second quarter of Saturday’s game against Mexico, Caboclo refused to re-enter the game for the second half. He was allegedly pouting during warm-ups and refused to join the team after multiple pleas. As a result, he has been removed from the national team altogether, with the Brazilian basketball confederation citing an act of indiscipline as the reason.

      Here’s the official statement from manager Renato Lamas, through Google translate and via Fabio Balassiano (and thanks to Mil Grau for sending along translated updates throughout):

      “The athlete Bruno Caboclo committed an act of indiscipline, refusing to enter the court when the coach requested, was removed from the Brazilian national team. Based on the principles that guide the current management of the Brazilian Confederation, we can not allow any athlete to commit an act of indiscipline of this size wearing the shirt of the Brazilian National Team.”

                    To be fair, Bruno is now -7 months away, which means he already arrived, which it looks like he did. Masai was a damn prophet.

                      Will be interesting to see how he does in Memphis. I'm of mixed feelings. It may be much like the Vince scenario. We might sign someone to a 10 day to get a look who has a bit less talent than Vince (or Bruno) because it's not worth the outside noise that comes with it. But I'll be watching the boxscores

                                Instead of posting here, how about you work on your game?

                                And stop playing like an idiot. Use your fucking brain.
