    Default Are the Raptors changing their uniforms this summer???

    After seeing the Hornets unveil their new jersey i was reminded of a article i might have read here on RR about how the raptors hired some design company to a create new jersey design to be used next season. was there any truth behind this? and if so are there any updates on it? Thanks.

    uniform change means nothing...I wish they followed through on changing the name of the franchise to the Huskies & the colours to Toronto Blue & White.

    I hope none of this shit happens. The colours are lame. Fuck the leafs and the jays. raptors are a different beast altogether and deserve to stand out, not blend in and get lost underneath the other teams that clearly get way more attention already.

    No problem buddy! Also rumours are that the new jersey colours are black and gold.

    Agreed please no blue and white leafs got same colour we need to be unique and not copy and huskies and timberwolves are pretty similar would be hard to come up with a design that isn't identical to minny

    Brilliant post.

    This city should be utterly embarrassed by the Leafs and Blue Jays futility over the past few decades. Blue and white represents exactly what the Raptors should NOT be aiming for.

    Uggh. I completely agree! Not to mention the Huskies name is absolutely terrible as well. Why the nostalgia to a team that played 1 year in the NBA 60 years ago? I could agree maybe if we had this amazing past we were trying to bring back, but the Toronto Huskies are barely a footnote in NBA history.

    For me personally, the almost 20 years of Raptors basketball far out weighs the 1 year of Husky basketball in terms of Nostalgia and meaning for the city. I'd be extremely sad if they changed the name, especially to Huskies which is boring, plain, and absolutely horrible.

    Well ain't that the pot calling the kettle black. The Raptors, sadly, are the most futile of all our franchises.

    Yeah let's be like every other sports team in Toronto! Being different is for losers!

    I actually agree, it's not that being different isn't cool, it's just that having that type of uniformity across the city would be nice. The blue and white would be Toronto's colors, rather than just red being the Raptors colors.

    On that front it's a little like every player on a team wearing the same jersey, it's just nice, uniform and begins to represent something.

    At least that's how I feel.

    Since 1995, that's debatable but not worth arguing

    The bottom line is that all of Toronto's teams have stunk for a very long time. As such, the Raptors should be doing everything in their power to break away from that pack. Rebranding to blue and white would be the opposite maneuver.

    I know, I caught on to that, should have been more clear, I meant I was agreeing with the guy who said he did. And I'm not sure that being different is inherently a good thing, like with team mates that wear the same jerseys.

    I don't think it's that far of a stretch to say that the blue and white could start to mean something to Toronto as a city

    A lot of people outside of Toronto don't want to cheer for blue and white.
    the Raptors are Canada's only basketball team, it's not only Toronto's team and Toronto's colors are blue and white, I think outsiders find it easier to root for a team with Canada's colors.
