    The Raffi Torres thing is out of control. Calm down people! It is nothing more than a costume. When there are people out there dressed as casey andrews and ted bundy and think that it is funny and cant handle that Raffi went as the biggest rapper over the last 20 years need to give thier head a shake.

    Typical. Remember the hyperventilating over the guy tossing a banana at Simmonds? Guy just threw what was in his hand at an opposing player like an idiot and because there happened to be a vague connection to plantations that could be drawn, SUDDENLY HORRIBLE EVIL RACISM.

    Honestly. Calm *down,* people.
