According to a CBS poll, The Raptors don't exist
A Major U.S. sports website has angered fans north of the border.
A poll done by cbssports.com left the Raptors out of a list of answers for “Who will win the NBA title?”
The options were the Warriors, Thunder, Cavaliers and Other.
The snub upset Raptors fans and many took to social media and got the hashtag #WeTheOther trending.
The Poll was later changed to add the Raptors with CBSsports saying the poll was created before Game 7 between the Heat and Raptors.
At one point after the change, around 1pm Tuesday, the Raptors were running away with the lead with 94 per cent of the 3,167 votes cast
Toronto Mayor John Tory also got in on the fun and sent this letter to CBSsports.
Unfortunately, after last night’s blowout 115-84 loss to the Cavaliers, Mayor Tory kind of looks like a “Tool of the Day,’ simply because he had to add in that last paragraph about the Raptors winning the championship.
We can still hope…
cbssports.com has obviously decided to run with all the Canadian backlash, having some more fun with their poll today, which asks “Which team will win the Eastern Conference finals?”
They’re obviously driving a lot of viewers from the north to their website.
Let’s chalk last night’s desecration up to a supernatural phenomenon or something and hope Game 2 Thursday night in Cleveland will see “The North” walk away with the “dubya!”
