    Regardless of the silly origin of the name, I hope they keep it over anything I've seen as suggestions, besides I like the claw logo that beats the hell out of any "Huskies" logo I've seen. Maybe a little re-tooling of the uniforms, but keep it simple.

    Name change is so unnecessary. The Toronto Raptors is a fine name, why change the damn name? If you want to change something, jerseys sure. But the name? NO!

    It would be interesting if they went back to Huskies. Rudy's name on Instagram is Huskie4lyfe

    personally i would never buy the jersey.. (if it has the two headed cartoon on it)
    ive changed my mind, i'd love to stick with the old logo and maybe bring back the purple.

    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?
    I'm more interested about your depression. What's wrong man?

    I was always a fan of the idea of naming Toronto the Loyalists, since they were essentially the main founders of the city sort of like Boston with the Celtics.
    That's pretty cool

    I'm a fan of #19.

    I also like #56 but it's literally a copy and paste of the predecessant Bobcats jerseys with altered colours. Not bad though.

    I didn't mind 39-40 too much... I also don't mind the name Towers, but I'd prefer to just stay Raptors.

    ask yourself: did you draw more huskies or t-rexes between the ages of 3 and 14?

    cmonnnnnnnn now. even kevin durant said he wanted to play for the raptors because our logo was cool.

    Toronto Huskies. Have a little tradition. Most people for dont know the first basketball game was played by the Toronto Huskies and New York Knicks. Also bring the blue and white just like every other Toronto team except FC(but who really cares about them?).

    this post alone should have closed this thread. nothing more needs to be said.

    I like the name. Raptors are fuckin badass, our claw logo is fuckin badass, why change it just because it's origins are a bit ingenious?

    Wrigley Field is named after a gum company, Lakers are named after the geographical zone surrounding Minnesota and the Jazz play in Utah.

    we have the manitoba bisons here for our CIS teams. absolutely ugliest jerseys i have ever seen. www.gobisons.ca.

    we might as well be the toronto platypuses if we're going that direction.

    Quote Apollo wrote: View Post
    The Bison is a proud, mighty animal indigenous to Canada. The "Toronto Bison" wouldn't be a bad choice.

    I think they should stick with red, white and black as their colors.

    If not that, then blue and white as those are the Leafs colors and it would make sense to keep all in house clubs with a similar look under the MLSE brand.

    so you drew squirrels as a child...? you cant tell me that the raptor is not bad ass. once any child discovered the art form of drawing a T-Rex...game over.

    Quote white men can't jump wrote: View Post
    Kevin Durant, and anyone of his age, supported the Raptors because of Vince Carter. He could've made a team called the Squirrels popular.

    Seriously, I understand some people are attached, but it's a terrible name.

    Oh, and the velociraptor is not some crazy vicious hunter like in Jurassic Park. Think more along the lines of a turkey with big claws...or a flightless hawk. Probably wouldn't try to attack a bigger animal, because it'd be too risky.
