    It's like Jack, Leo and Matt have been telling us: everything is just fine. It's all going accroding to plan. Now, go buy season tickets, have lunch at Real Sports and buy a Raps jersey! Look at the shiny keys.... wheeeeeeeeeeeee!

      Nice post, Raptoronto. I'm a little biased as it speaks to everything I believe in about the franchise and BC.

        Another biased one. Patience is never easy to have, but essential. BC is the right man for the job right now.

            I understand the opening sentence of the opening post to state that the RR community would prefer to see BC bounced. The poll on the home page on this issue indicates otherwise 64:36. From what I have experienced this ratio is a fair representation of the postings in threads on the same subject.

                The RR community seriously suggesting Charles Barkley for GM is ground zero for the commentary on this site.
                I completely agree. I can think of no better way to ensure the Raptor's franchise is never taken seriously than to hire Barkley as GM. I was going to post my thoughts on this terrible idea (and call out the stewards of the Republic for endorsing it on the front page), but didn't for some reason. Glad you did.

                  So lets say we extend Colangelo for 5 years, because he won't take anything less or any less money. If in 2 years he doesn't get us where the team wants to be, then we're screwed. Letting him go isn't short sighted, its' cautious.

                  It's a risk either way you go, espeically if they were to hire Barkley (you need to stop crying about it being brought up because it's not going to happen. It was just a passing thought that made this site interesting for a few days). Chances are they will extend Colangelo and we'll see improvement over the next 3 years.

                  Let us have some fun on here though. Get the stick out of your anus and think outside the box for once.

                      He's gotta got an extension. Just don't bring back Gherardini. BC did extremely well in PHX without him, and I'm sure he can here too. Maybe bring in an up and coming executive to become Asst GM whom BC could try to mold into a protege of sorts, then when the next contract is up you keep one or the other, possibly neither.

                        Dude, the Raps won't be screwed. Everything's fine. Most of the guys on this team are projected by, um, someone to be NBA quality starters and role players. Top 8 guys. The coach is perfect for this team right now base on, um, the thoughts of some guy. The GM is respected by "them" and he signed Hedo Turkoglu. Hedo Turkoglu! This is exactly how management had it planned out 5 years ago. The Raps are right on track. No need to worry. Just relax. We're in great hands.

                        And if not, well, it's the first rebuild in franchise history. The first 3 years of the team don't count, Carter was too good and he ruined the late 90s rebuild, the years 2003-2006 never happened and the 2006-2007 rebuild wasn't actually a rebuild. Plus, what can the last 5 years possibly tell us about the quality of management and ownership in Toronto? It's only 5 years. Hang in there. If it doesn't work out in the next 16 years ago then it might be time to get worried.

                          Yes...that's entirely possible. In which case, I'm an idiot.

                              okay this goes to show that people really do want BC to stay in Toronto , I have seen a few of these votes here on RR and with always the same result. So lets end the debate the facts are in, we want him to stay
