    Default New Uniforms 2014

    Do any of you think the raptors shud get new uniforms for the upcoming season. We have now had this same design for awhile, and we are heading in to a new era. I personally think we shud bring back purple

    NO.

    I love the purple but Raptors have to stop changing jerseys/colours every 5 years. The current ones is fine. Love the red jerseys, not big on the black ones but i think their home white is one of the most underrated jerseys in the league.

    And just because the Raps are heading into a new era doesn't mean they need to get new uniforms.

    I think a bit of continuity in the Franchise would be nice for a change. I don't even think the current ones look too bad, especially the black alternate one.
    That said, I'd be all for rocking the purple a few times a year, like all the teams that did throwbacks this season. My god, I was watching a cellar-dweller Phoenix team just for those Black jerseys (okay, and Goran Dragic).

    haha, I should've mentioned, but in some forums green text is indicative of a troll post/sarcasm.

    Oh. I just noticed this is the same guy who created that "what if Mo Pete..." thread.

    I voted yes on the jerseys though. I think we should go with Hypercolor jerseys next year. Remember those?

    Just change the colour back to purple and black, and white. Not the purple dinosaur one, too extreme. I wanna get rid of the red, too many teams use red as their teams colour, I would like some orginality..

    everyone thinks that the raptors need a change in uniforms...in reality they need a change in management, coaching and point guard position..just bring the throwback raptor jersey's for a couple games.. im very surprised the suns and bucks got those ugly throwbacks this year for a couple games...and we didnt...i guess thats what happens when you r the raptors

    Go with the camo's full time! JK (those are hideous!) I like the jerseys, just not the lettering. And why is the 'n' in TOROnTO lowercase?

    I've been a passionate Raptors fan since Toronto was first awarded an NBA franchise and there are 2 questions I have about this thread (aside from the fact that it's the same thread that gets rehashed every few months):

    1. What is this 'new era' you mentioned in your first post?

    The team's ownership, management, coaching and core roster are the same as they've been for the past few seasons. The only roster additions were draft picks (Valanciunas & Ross) and trade acquisitions (Lowry & Gay). I fail to see how some roster changes constitute a 'new era', as roster turnover is a natural part of life for all professional sports teams. The "Mighty Mouse era" or "Vinsanity era" or "Bosh era" are simply ways to remember certain periods of Raptors history with fondness and nostalgia, nothing more meaningful than that.

    2. What does changing a uniform have to do with either a 'new era' or the actual results in the win/loss column?

    New uniforms have more to do with marketing & merchandise sales than anything else. A new uniform won't change the skill/effort of the players on the roster. A new uniform won't change the strategy of management or the coaching staff. A new uniform won't improve the team's ability to attract free agent talent (not that they have the cap space for it). A new uniform won't improve the team's record or make them a playoff team.


    I think this talk of 'new uniforms for a new era of Raptors basketball' is a result of drinking the Raptors PR koolaid and being brainwashed by Raptors marketing. I don't have any issues with hope, but talk of a 'new era' is just a little too corny for me.
