    Not sure if serious. Hawks and Pelicans are the only bird mascots in the NBA, and the Pelicans haven't even played a game yet. If anything there are too few birds in the NBA, and too many burning basketballs (I'm looking at you Heat and Suns).

    Also not sure if serious. First thing I said in the post was keep the name Raptors but change the logo/mascot. Speaking of hooting, imagine the potential for the entire arena hooting while the other team shoots free throws.

    For me..I think the name/logo shouldn't change, but that's just me.

    People complain about how threads like this veer way off- topic and stuff. But, examine that this is page 20 of a thread about changing the name of the team.

    Is there anything of value that can be added to the discussion after 3 pages of people saying yes or no and why?

    Like it's not going to reach 20 pages and be purely about the OP. And in an offseason as quiet as this there ain't much fresh on-topic discussion to be had.

    Things will veer more on-topic when the season starts and if they don't than you should complain about it since there will be fresh things to talk about. But in the dog days of the off-season what exactly are you expecting?

    If you don't like the discussion here. Take a hiatus and come back in October.

    We selected the name 20 years ago and now were complaining about. If I was voting back then I probably would of gone with the raptors.

    My thoughts are It's just a name. I have no opinion on it because I've never paid it much attention. Honestly, I don't like that there's no logos anymore on a lot of jerseys.

    It just says the name and it's coloured. There's no design. Stick some sort of logo on there.

    Default Re-branding actually in serious consideration?

    Today I was experiencing the normal summer depression stuff and then all of a sudden I ran into this:
    ----------------------------------------
    A cut out from Smith's blog
    ----------------------------------------
    You folks are pretty good.

    Way back when the notion of “re-branding” the Raptors came up, the Tall Foreheads at our place figured it’d be kind of cool to ask the readers to do the work for them.

    Now, for some reason known only to the TFs (Tall Foreheads), they had me join a fashion designer and Amir Johnson in “judging” them and since I was pretty much the brown shoes at that black-tie affair, I should probably be absolved of all responsibility.

    But you’ll get to see the fruits of our labour – and yours – later on today (not sure what time but it’s a print and video bonanza) and I will only tell you this:

    Fewer of you wanted to change the name than I expected and a lot of you are really talented.

    --------------------------------------

    It's pretty cool that they are actually considering a re-branding movement ...

    With Amir being one of the judges for the re-branding ... it ought to be pretty awesome.

    What are your thoughts? Stay the same, re-brand as the Raptors or re-brand as the Huskies?
