    Affirmative. But keep in mind that it's also the anniversary, so they will see how the fans react and either keep it for the rebrand in '16 or use it as a final farewell.

    Way cool! I like the colour scheme, the font is a bit weird, but I definitely like it.

    I like the bullet point under why to buy season tickets.

    "Guarantee tickets to all 43 Raptors home games"

    ... speaking in faith.

    not the fan, reminds me WWE. And they are probably paying thousands to their designers and all they come up with is low quality pictures with free textures, which can be found on google with keyword "grunge textures" on the first pages. But this is my opinion as someone who's not regular in graphics, the most important thing is that majority likes it. I believe that's not the rebranding they are heading to.

    It could simply be an homage to the past.

    Since the Text, and images all point back to our Original Logo/Jerseys, and this IS an anniversary tribute, it could be just that; a tribute. Perhaps a throw-back night?

    Right. It was just a few weeks ago we assumed the OVO promo's black and gold were the new colours.

    Having said that, the black and purple does look good without any red on it.

    Which points more to the fans wanting to see change more than anything.

    I remember when Purple was considered lame, and the Red/Black unis were hot-shit. LOL

    I liked Team Candas Red-Black-Gold jerseys.

    It seems to make sense too.

    With the claw logo bringing the 20 years full circle to the present.

    I like it. Simple, clean, modern take on the 'good old days' of Raptors basketball.

    The only negative comment about the purple/white/black color scheme is that it looks a lot like the Kings' jerseys.

    yah it kind of does. and kings fans have pretty much owned #foreverpurple for a while now

    as for that font, its awful and isn't exactly new or anything so i dunno why people are thinking its something we haven't seen before? its the wordmark they've used for a long time now.



    i expect the new logo to be simplified and modernized.

    Love it too. Can't wait for them to get rid of the red and white. I'll have to buy a lot of new clothes though...

    The longer you look at the Raptor playing basketball the funnier it becomes.
