Chris Bosh Couldn’t Get ‘Good Cable’ in Toronto

Bosh continues with his noble quest to be hated by everyone on the country; here are his latest anti-Toronto comments (via ESPN): “Chris Bosh said he’s happy because he can get League Pass now in Miami. In Toronto, said he didn’t have ‘the good cable.’”

    Bogus liar! lol


    I am in Ottawa(canadian capital) and I am a proud supporter of LP for the pass couple of seasons. Stop with the Bull Bosh and step your game up before before my HEAT get rid of you.

  • http://nicekicks.com meloman2.0

    and we’re so glad watching u contribute little to nothing for the Heat… gooood ridance

  • TrailBlazing&SportingLisbon

    this pu$$y of a powerless forward is such an attention whore, its laughable

  • JR

    I can’t wait to boo you when you come to Toronto CB.

  • thead

    BULLSHIT. League Pass has been a part of Rogers Cable for years now

  • drew

    being the technology challenged fool that i am.. i was still able to somehow get league pass in tdot. c’mon chris… looking forward to you getting the vc/tmac treatment upon your return @ the acc!


    I purchased the Heat Raptors ticket at the ACC the day it was announced. Even got it cheaper. 1st: it will be good to see King James in a new uniform. 2nd: Wade is playing outta of his freaking mind nowadays and last, I can’t wait to boo Bosh. He left us and we have a record of 1 and 7 (second worst in the league).

  • johnny c

    and what reason did Bosh have to stay in toronto? mediocre team, bad management, and a city of fans that feel that he owes them something when he dont owe them s***. can’t blame him and Turkoglu for wanting out

  • Flight

    He’s on route to the boo’s that Vince gets at the ACC…

  • Gman

    Its obvious Johnny c is stupid. The turk didnt play hard for 10 mill a season; good he is gone. Cityof Tdot is actually kind of happy he is gone. VC took us further, best all time raptor.

    Bosh is a feakin loser.
    I don’t know about the East but cable in B.C. does suck. No one I know here can get league pass.

  • Flight

    @johnny c
    How can you say you cannot blame Turk for wanting to leave? Or the fans shouldn’t feel like their “owed” something? Turkoglu signed a freaking 50 million dollar deal and demanded a trade after 1 year. I think the city and fans should feel like their “owed” something.

    The raptors suck and i would have wanted to leave to managment sucks, coangalo is trying to buit a fiba team…. and Damon Stoudamire is the best raptor ever.

  • chazz michael michaels

    this dude is trying to give every reason to ignore his crappy play with the heat.

  • http://theurbangriot.com The Nupe

    He needs to just shut up and play better. stupid insult to say the least.

  • CyldeSays

    Cable? That’s your beef? Not the Raptors GM, Coaches or team? Pick your spots, CB…

  • Martey

    Co-sign Run n Gun, Mighty Mouse is the greatest Raptor, then Vince, then Bosh

    “Chris Bosh said he’s happy because he is a role player that is lost in Miami. In Toronto, at least they thought that I was good.’” BOOK IT!!

    While the room is full of puckheads; we call ham canadian bacon. Do you call bacon american ham? How does it work?

  • http://blogs.thescore.com/tbj/author/hollymackenzie/ Ghost

    F*ck off Bosh, I have league pass. Seriously cut the bullsh*t and continue to contribute little to nothing to your team. I was defending you before, but now you’re just getting pathetic. I hope you end up on one of Demar Derozan’s posters.

  • Sparker

    the thin, leaf stuff is bacon. the ham-like ish is back bacon. if that was really a serious question.

  • http://blogs.thescore.com/tbj/author/hollymackenzie/ Ghost

    Lmao Tarzan, no we don’t. Bacon is bacon.

    He’s right, you know. I’ve lived in both the US and Canada, and am a Canadian citizen, but Canadian cable is pretty terrible at times. I remember when I somehow got HBO for free in the States (this probably doesn’t happen anymore)–and up north all we get is HBO Canada. And Raptors NBA TV is nowhere near as good as just having NBA TV–but for some reason we have to get the “Raptors” in front, where they don’t even play live Raptors games. That being said, you CAN get League Pass in Toronto with Rogers’ cable. What a dumbee.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Western Canada, however, with the Shaw monopoly in effect, can’t get League Pass because Rogers’ has a stranglehold on that. But Bosh lived in Toronto, which would be a top 5 city in the States were it American.

  • http://klatschendom.wordpress.com/ speedy

    As if that was important.
    Neither him saying that nor having ‘good cable’.

  • Migs

    C’mon Bosh.. seriously? SERIOUSLY?!?! Give it some time and he’ll start complaining about Canada’s use of the metric system or that our spelling is slightly different.

  • http://twitter.com/HarryByrdMan44 LA Huey

    The Miami Hate is getting stronger every day. It makes it that much more fun to follow this team.


    what a loser. I can’t believe i defended him. Now we can really call him that nickname that keeps coming back POWERLESS FORWARD.

  • http://banksitin.blogspot.com/ vmcb

    Bosh has to stop with these comments.

  • johnny c

    and your reactions are exactly why i cant stand you canadians eh! i cant stand that place. the turk thing, its no wonder he gave up there, toronto sucks and if i had to live in purgatory i’d lose my passion too. and it aint his fault you morons overpaid him so much for his average talents. btw, you all are so rude to me anytime i have any interaction with canadians, so i do know what i’m talking about.

  • johnny c

    @Flight, i was more referring to the canada people feeling Bosh owed them. Turk gave up after a year, Bosh on the other hand was a free agent, free to go wherever he wanted. canadians should thank Bosh for making the raptors a meaningful team for that one year. most ungrateful snobbish d*ckheaded people in the world

  • thead

    why do people even respond to trolls?

  • http://blogs.thescore.com/tbj/author/hollymackenzie/ Ghost

    Johhny c is it a hug you want? I can give you a hug.

  • flipnoyce

    And this is the guy who went to Georgia Tech and was supposedly into technology? With the kind on money you make, you mean to tell me they couldn’t provide you the best Toronto has to offer. It must be the new Hair DO that got you thinkin clearly. Save your insults to a country that breeds hockey players and just play your game because right now your stat doesn’t make you relevant. Just enjoy your sunrise before sunset pass you by to another team!!!!

  • a_whiteman

    He wilbe booed, but NO ONE will ever get it worse in T.O then VC.

  • http://www.nba.com Gman

    arrite who cares now.. too many posts for this lol.


  • Bruno

    flipnoyce is right

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    Thanks sparker, that kinda helps. I dont understand the reasons for the terminology. We get canadian bacon on pizza. But eat a ham sammich not a canadian bacon sammich. ……. I really like the movie ‘canadian bacon’ SUPER CLASSIC………. ….Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm bacon

  • max

    chris bosh couldnt get good rebounds in miami…

  • DL

    If a player gets booed in Toronto and no trees are there to hear it, does it matter?

    @johnny c
    Yeah I would have left if I were Bosh too. After years of defending the criticisms of him being “soft” and not a true franchise player, it is almost reliving to be able to hate on Bosh playing in Miami. And not ALL Canadians say “eh”..it is rather annoying though. Ha…

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    Couldnt find a good barber either… Shouldn’t Oakley be mentioned in best Raptor ever discussions?? Everybody is entitled to an opinion, and mine is that Vince did more for the franchise than any other Raptor..

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    You Toronto cats are starting to sound like Clevelanders and SMH @ Slam for tryna drum up some controversy for no reason….

  • johnny c

    thanks for being respectful at least. i travel to many different cities for my job, and toronto is one of my least favorite, and it has nothing to do with the scenery or the nightlife. it has to do with the people (the immigrants are the exception, they are always very nice and respectful i have found). and as much as the city might suck, turk owed it to his employer to perform, but i’m just sayin.

  • johnny c

    btw, free my man barbosa!!!! :(

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    I’m astonished by how many people on here are so stupid as to take that comment literally.

  • AZN

    for real u can’t get espn in canada either

  • http://jayemmbee23.tumblr.com Clutch Performer

    ok league pass we get but its only recently you could get it online, but we dont get ESPN, we get hockey overdoes of TSN and Sportsnet, the Score is legit on basketball and then you had Raptors NBA TV which is now NBA TV canada

  • RexdaleGIANT

    Alvin Wil and Mighty mouse were our best pgs. Vince was the best Raptor. Bosh will find his groove sooner or later. TSN is our trash version of ESPN

  • JTaylor21

    what does chris posh spice need with watching tv, dude needs to eat his spinach or just do roids because dude is softer than wet mink.

  • Harlem_World

    Said it before and will say it again…Bosh is overrated, overpaid and rode in to miami on a meal his skills really can’t pay for. He’ll be traded within 2 yrs. I’d take Al Jefferson over him any day of the week. Face up jump shooting forward? With Bron and DWade on the perimeter? GTFOH…Shaq was right.

  • JoeMaMa

    @Johnny C: It’s great to have someone makes comments on over 30 million people. Because all Canadians are the same, talk the same way, and act the same as well. Come up with something better than ‘Canadians this/that’. It shows a lack of intellectual growth and a stunted, simplistic world view.
    Furthermore, most Raptors would rather not boo Bosh. He gave us good years, and made his own decision to leave. I understand his desire to win elsewhere, because it wasn’t happening with us. But the comments he’s been making…it’s like he’s trying to chip away at the goodwill he earned with his play and community works. Oh well. Best of luck, Bosh, and go to school, Johnny C.

  • http://www.nba.com Alf

    Here’s a better question amongst the T.Dot Fans:

    Between Bosh and V.Carter, which former Raptor is hated more now? That is, which one is booed (or do you think will be) booed more?

    My vote? Bosh.

  • dsleepy21

    I don’t get the hate on canada. Toronto specifically is a very cool city. But seriously mb my mind in the gutter but am I the only person who thought this article was gonna be about somethin else? That “good” cable…?

  • johnny c

    i’m 25 years old, and i wouldnt be suprised if thats older than you. i’m not saying all people in canada are the same, i’m making a generalization from what i’ve experienced first hand. i apologize if you thought i literally meant every single person in canada, i thought it was more implied as a generalization.

  • burnt_chicken

    no you are right johnny c. general people shouldn’t be offended by generalizations like “most ungrateful snobbish d*ckheaded people in the world”. I totally get you on that.

  • burnt_chicken

    i guess Bosh probably wants to dial the HD back down after last night’s 3D Rondoization.

  • http://celticknightk3@aol.com Celtic Knight

    Yes Chris got Rondoed so he shouldn’t complain anymore now that he’s got 3D LP now!

  • johnny c

    I should apologize @burnt_chicken. toronto people are not all bad, the immigrants and international community there are very good, and they help me keep my sanity while i’m there.

  • Kyle

    Bosh is being honest. He didn’t get to watch all the NBA games, and didn’t know that Rondo was going to make him his b!tch like that if he didn’t at least jump. He also didn’t get to see how physical a few teams play Queen James… being the power forward who’s paid tons of money, he should be a Lamar Odom, Artest type guy who will at least back up his boy.

    The hate on Carter is absurd… he was hurt, and actually got you guys into the playoffs while being Dominique 2.0… you guys haven’t seen an exciting player since him. There’s a reason for that.

    Bosh equals scapegoat if Miami has a disappointing season. I wouldn’t be surprised if Riley traded Bosh before next season.
