    The black ones with double raptor skull?Yes, they look wicked

    And like I mentioned. They need to put a design/logo on that.
    no #25 looks horrible whatever difference in opinion..

    #26 is the jersey that was chosen by the judges, so I guess #29 would be our new logo(which is pretty sick). That red stripe going down the middle is random but I do agree with LBF that we should put a logo on it. It's not too that though, like at least they didn't go with #28

    Judging by the top 5, it's obvious the panel doesn't have great taste. I think the 2nd and 3rd place jerseys are pretty terrible (#14 and #41) and I'm surprised #56 didn't crack their top 5

    So are the Raptors going through with this? And if it does, will it likely be for this season or the next?

    I get the sense that you guys dont like anything that brings back the dinosaur..thats why you shun those sharp looking jerseys

    I like the Huskies jerseys for their simplicity, colors and fonts, just put the Raptors name in place of Huskies.

    Boring letter design
    Random pin stripe through the middle
    Two cartoon dinosaur heads emerging out of a T you can barely see

    Its not a random pin stripe. Its what ties it all together.."cartoon dinosaur" this is a non-argument since no one has ever seen a real dinosaur..

    "Can hardly see the "T" " Nit picking much? I see it just fine..

    Letter Design? Really? It looks the same as the other 29 teams to me..do you want it to be bubble letters or something?

    I like the move to blue and white, I also like calling ourselves the huskies, there were tons of cool/fierce logos for the husky.

    Basically, blue + white officially becomes the Toronto colours... Maple leafs, Blue jays, Argos, and now Huskies, Huskies reverts our name from a blockbuster movie in the 90s' to our heritage as one of the oldest basketball cities. And anything beats those all black jerseys..

    It's an ugly place to put the pin stripe.

    You can make dinosaurs look more realistic than that.

    No I'm not nit picking, I didn't even notice the T until I looked closely because part of it is blending in with the rest of the jersey. You can't put black letters on a black jersey.

    And as for the lettering, I find it way to plain. There are definitely a lot of teams with way better font than that. And should't we try to be better than the other teams and not just the same anyways?
