    I've been at both.
    EDIT: I know you prob haven't watched the first 2 Raps games, but the players had a hard time hearing the whistles. That's how loud it was.

    I've been to a lot of Sens playoff games and I can tell you that the year they made it to the finals the atmosphere went up and the volume went up significantly each round. I can't say what it's like at the Raptors games but if it's better than that then good job TO for that.

    Even last year against Montreal CTC was rocking. I was there for game 3 (Pageau Pageau Paguea and the brawl) and it was unreal. Besides game 3 of the finals in 07 that's the best game I have ever attended.

    Yeah, last year's atmosphere at the CTC was incredible, especially given that a big portion of the building was quiet Habs fans.

    The series against Pittsburgh when Alfie lost his Jersey and the fans started chanting Alfie Alfie Alfie was near the top as far as favourites. Another one I loved going to was when I travelled to New Jersey for Game 5 to see them beat New Jersey with another 2000 or so Sens Fans.

    Game 7 vs New Jersey is the loudest I've ever heard the CTC crowd (on TV that is). Literally was deafening. And then arvedson scored that first goal and all of ottawa went nuts. Too bad it ended with mother Diddler friesen scoring the gwg.

    Also, that season was the evolution of the car flags.

    Raps win on the road. Even the series 2-2. Get home court advantage back again.

    Nice win by the raptores. I am getting a kick out of the massive amounts of fans outside ACC watching the games. Like come on man save something for the later rounds....they won't know what to do lol

    That said, their playoff tickets are the most expensive in the NBA. So I don't blame these poor shmucks. What on earth is MLSE thinking.....least storied franchise in the playoffs and you are pricing higher than the likes of miami, LA, brooklyn, san antonio, etc. Keeps working though, they sell out.

    Heard this morning on radio how the Raptors won their first road playoff game since the "Carter Era" and I immediately thought "Jimmy Carter?"

    Is there a dumber playoff slogan than "#WeTheNorth"? It's not even Cussing English for Diddle's sake. Talk about contributing to stupid NBA stereotypes.

    I can certainly envisage a few players saying it like that.

    Joking aside, the ads are really pi$$ing me off.
