    Nowhere. Gametime is a self-promoting "marketing" douchebag. Feel free to ignore his posts.

    Those are the colour palettes being reviewed by MLSE at this time. NDA's limit how much can be said, but it was an "interesting" PR move too many seeing Tim L wearing a purple/black tie at the official season ticket holder event. Perhaps his strategy was to keep people talking about the new branding with the NHL getting all the media attention again in Canada. We're discussing it on a couple other forums now.

    minus the douchebag part, its true to say that Gametime is just a self promoter.

    When he posted that "petition" to "save the raptor name" it smelled bad to me, so I looked into what his deal was.

    Take a look at his website, and I think you'll have to agree that 'douchebag' is a pretty apt characterization.

    No, I still don't see your point.
    So I repeat, please refrain from making personal attacks against other posters; or you will receive a friendly PM.

    If you feel like there is any nefarious goings on around here, then please, by all means make an official report. But otherwise, keep your insults and name-calling to yourself please.

    University of Laval 'Rouge et Or' pull off the Red/White/Gold combo nicely.
    Trying to find a pic of their basketball jerseys...

    Volleyball jerseys, but still:


    And now to make up for the fact that I posted volleyball jerseys:
    Women's College Volleyball, Laval Rouge et Or VS McGill Martlets,  Montrťal, 2 February 2013  (47)

    I have to side with uniqueness. So that's the PURPLE or BLACK/GOLD route.
