          I have been pleasantly surprised with the maturity level and depth of discussion. RR forums have come a long way.

              I'm glad people are noticing this. We've worked really hard to bring this place to a level I feel is unmatched by competing boards. Fun and respect, if those two are held as high priorities you're going to get good results.

                I like to zip through other teams forums every now and then (to get a different perspective on teams situations) and I have to admit that hands down I have not found a more active, deeper, and more committed forum such as the one here at RR.
                Im happy to be new here :]

                      • Hi everyone, i'm a new soft euro on the raptors (forum).

                        I've been watching the raptors for about 8(?) years from the Netherlands, thanks to the legendary Raptormage and i've been roaming this forum a lot due to following raptors news via the twitter account of raptorsrepublic.

                        For long i was scared of participating by the general high level of the discussion, but lately the discussions have finally reached a level whereas i could stoop to. As a transracial selfloathing European big man/bigot i find sollace in the remarks about Euro trash in general and European big man in particular. Now that even admins freely use degoratory language I finally see the time has come to make a comment or two knowing I will not be called upon my general lack of knowledge and borderline racial slurs. No longer do we have analyse on individual merit, no longer do we have to be respectful even to bad players or bad coaches or bad gm's!

                        Go North-America! (boo Euros)

                        Add on June 25: I was wrong about the admins. Frustration got the best of me and I wrongly interpreted some comments about the Euro-players (by lumpling them together with comments in the same threads where the Euro-aspect did play a role). My apologies.

                          I don't remember Admins ever using derogatory language (especially about Euros), but what do I know?

                          I think you're gonna be real popular here!
                          Eh follow my TWITTER!

                          • Soft Euro,

                            A lot of sarcasm in your post. I will say this. For a long time, I could not participate in Raptor discussion forums because all I heard was that NA big men like Ben Wallace and Denis Rodman were trash. They did not understand the game or were not considered "skilled". No jump shot, or 3pter. It made me avoid many Toronto forums, funny how time and the benefit of actual game time quickly changes that perspective.

                            Life can be like a pendulum, you pull on it too hard one way, and it will swing back in the other direction when you release it.

                              I think he was trying to be funny in a passive aggressive kind of way. I also don't recall any admins/staff using derogatory language but then again I guess it could all come down to how he personally defines "derogatory". Maybe he doesn't agree with Webster?

                              • Hey everyone, I'm a long time visitor to this site but I've only now decided to join. I relly like the site and it is very informative. I just thought I'd finally add my 2 cents from time to time.
