Sports Forum / Raptors' President of Operations

Police confirm Ujiri identified himself to deputy, showed credentials

TORONTO, ON - JUNE 17: Toronto Raptors President Masai Ujiri looks on during the Toronto Raptors Victory Parade on June 17, 2019 in Toronto, Canada. The Toronto Raptors beat the Golden State Warriors 4-2 to win the 2019 NBA Finals.
Masai Ujiri did present NBA identification to the sheriff's deputy who refused to allow him onto the Oracle Arena court after the Toronto Raptors' NBA Finals victory, the Alameda County Sheriff's Office told Robyn Doolittle of The Globe and Mail.

The Raptors president of basketball operations was involved in an altercation with the deputy following Game 6. Sheriff's Office spokesperson Sgt. Ray Kelly said last week that the deputy tried to stop Ujiri from entering the court because he "had no credential displayed, and our deputy asked for his credential."

The Sheriff's Office has now also confirmed that Ujiri told the deputy what his role with the team was before their confrontation.

his 15 minutes has been up
so anybody who talks to him now
bears the blame for whatever happens

Sports Forum / NFL: expansion playoffs - not the regular season
« on: June 04, 2019, 04:08:54 PM »
Instead of expanding the regular season to 18 games; how about expanding the playoffs instead from 12 to 14.

The top seeds from each conference -- the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots - have the week off.
Instead of joining those teams on a bye, however, the No. 2 seed Green Bay Packers are hosting the No. 7 Philadelphia Eagles in the first round. The AFC's No. 2 seed is also in action, so the Denver Broncos are preparing to host the No. 7 Houston Texans.

Wildcard Weekend:
AFC 2 vs 7 @1PM
AFC 3 vs 6 @4PM
AFC 4 vs 5 @7PM
NFC 2 vs 7 @1PM
NFC 3 vs 6 @4PM
NFC 4 vs 5 @7PM

Divisional Weekend:
NFC #1 vs 4/5 winner early game
NFC 2/7 winner vs 3/6 winner late game

AFC #1 vs 4/5 winner early game
AFC 2/7 winner vs 3/6 winner late game
