    I'm starting to warm up to this black/gold idea. With TL's proclamation of going further in making the Raps Canada's team, I figured there's no way he'd consider going far away from Red/White, and going by national teams in recent years, Black as third colour.

    Though I don't really care that much, but not being a Toronto resident, I was feeling a little perturbed that some Torontonians want the team to themselves and outwardly want to discount the Canadian angle. Then I got to thinking,,,,,,,,, as one of the many Calgary/Alberta members here, I'm seriously warming up to this Black Gold idea and making it truly Alberta's team:

    - Oil: Black Gold
    - Dinosaurs: Alberta = fossil capital of Canada, one of largest in the world.

    Yeah, let's go black/gold and make this officially Alberta's team!!!!
    And hey, how bout this stuff:


    If we don't go blue/white, I love the black and gold idea. Could definitely sell tonnes of gear.

    I hate when Canadian teams get overly patriotic and make every logo and jersey colour be "Canadian"

    I hate the blue and white idea, but I hate red & white Canadian flag idea even more.
    +1 the raps jersey to me feels like they are wearing the canadian flag. I could care less about cheering for Canada, I'm cheering for Toronto. I don't like the blue and white either, I get that people want it cause the leafs and jays and that is why I don't want it. The Raptors need to make a name for themselves, not ride on the leaf's popularity.

    Black/gold sounds good to me, I wish we could see what they have mocked up. I would also experiment with purple accents, but more black and gold then purple.

    Default Gold colour lost in court colour?...

    At the game ("Drake" night Raps/Nets) a lot of people noticing the 'gold' doesn't "pop" and blends into the court. For those watching on TV, do you see the 'Gold' as easy as you would, say, with the colour 'Purple'? (Here's a pic I tried to take with the shirts adjacent to the court if that helps)

    Gives me chills when you see a warriors game or something and every fan is dressed in yellow or blue, I think they were all in white on christmas day as well. Hoped for that kind of atmosphere tonight, but not to be. Looked ordinary. I know its Black with some gold, but still expected it to look cool. The fact that only 60% or so of the fans that showed up wore the shirts probably was the main reason though!

    I agree, I liked the black and gold at first glance but man would the playoff atmosphere ever look bland and boring. Having all the fans in red definitely pops a lot more, is much more noticeable and creates a better atmosphere I think. I agree with the yellow on warriors fans too, looks great.

    They have to do the OKC style where one section gets black, the middle gets gold and then black again.

    The Thunder alternates IMO are awful. They could've created a lot of cool jersey design with the name Thunder and they picked that?? so boring, it doesn't make sense.

    As for the Raps, i'm warming up with the black and gold. Still prefer red and white like the Indiana Hoosier jersey but i don't have any problem with black and gold. I think it's unique.

    I quite like the thunder alternates tbh. Sometimes simple just works better for me!

    But yeh Having the Arena split in Red and White segments would look amazing for the playoffs If...WHEN the raptors make it

    I agree about the thunder alternates, they just look so cheap.

    This thread is almost identical to the one we had going in the offseason about rebranding

    Basically I'm down with whatever... as long as they aren't all gold jerseys. That would be disgusting to look at.

    Or blue. Fuck blue.

    LOL, sneaky product placement Mack.

    Changing the color scheme is a great idea. It will help differentiate the brand from the last two phases which ended with abysmal results and public finger pointing...

    I'm down for whatever helps the process. I'm tired of watching losers. I've been watching losers for most of the last 20 years...

    It's football, but here is an example:

    I LOVE the Thunder alternative, it just doesn't work well with their bland colours. But I love that they went with a completely new design. Team's should try out of the box designs for their 3rd jersey's, and not just camo colours but real design changes.
