    The decision on changing the Raptors' name or not is coming soon.

    Well, he certainly knows how to give good answers. I'm excited for what he has in mind.

    It is less than one week.

    That's the blog, but I'm talking about the INTERVIEW that this thread claims to be 'new". The blog says the interview was "recent". When was the interview, if it "is less than one week"?

    Am I the only one that feels the name "Raptors" sounds like a Under-12 Lacrosse team?

    Most of us around here are usually on top of interviews, news articles, etc. as they come out. I've never seen this one. I'm making the assumption it is relatively new - like less than a week.

    Since you are making the claim it is old, could you provide some evidence to this? I know that is not how you tend to roll but I'm kind of interested in when it was actually done now.


    RaptorsBlog at theScore.com are kind of paid to post on Raptors news as it comes out. I don't think they are going to take months to make a post on an interview. Given that the blog post was from 3 days ago I thought I'd add a few days just in case an interview fell through the cracks.

    Also RealGM tends to have things posted almost immediately. A thread started there for this interview on September 25th - I believe that is less than a week ago.

    Then you have the guy chastising another for calling the interview "new" when a thread was already started 2 days prior:

    You wish to continue your snotty ways, but that's how you roll. Look, I'm not the one that created this thread claiming that an interview that the link doesn't link to is new. The blog it was quoted from simply says "recent". Though I still haven't been able to actually see this "new interview" (have you? do you have a link that works?), but the blogger talks of the exact stuff TL was babbling months ago, all I've got to go on is:
    - since there's no actual date associated with it, anybody is left to assume what "recent" means. Do you know this blogger well enough to know what his/her "recent" means? In normal every day language, that can be anywhere from minutes to months.
    - somehow I can't imagine TL is spouting the same stuff in a current interview as he spouted months ago

    Now I could be very wrong on this new/old thing, and if you or the OP can actually link to the interview itself, and identify a date, I'll gladly eat my words.

    PS. Sorry, but whatever some commenters are posting on RealGM is no evidence of anything for me.

    You are right. I came off as snotty.

    Yes, I've watched it twice and I had not see it before. He is talking same hype stuff leaving everything open to interpretation. With regards to rebranding the franchise, he said decisions had to be made soon as deadline was in one month. So if anyone can find the deadline for requesting franchise nickname change (I can't) we would have an approximate idea of when the interview was done.

    The link was working originally, it is not now.

    Keep the name. That is the only thing about this organization that has not contributed to the constant failure. Fix the talent issues first.

    The name raptors, and the claw, would be quite badass if this was a 55 win team, trust me.
