    ^^ I say they scrap that Jurrasic Park Era and go back to the Huskies. They sold more Huskies merchandise than the dino version, this year. The Dino version is for kids, to me. The name came at the height and popularity of Jurrasic Park, those days. Why? Because the public voted and had a part to do with it, when we knew we were gonna get the franchise. I do not think that name holds any "Umph" to me. I think the dinos only live in movies, but huskies are always here. Plus, huskies reflect our "winter" image more than a dinosaur that died millions of years ago.

    I also prefer the old Purple Raptors Jerseys to the new Red ones. I know the red is for Canada, but those purple jerseys were sharp.
    I like the Huskies idea (not named after an awesome Movie/Novel would be nice) but I think that if they go to the huskies they keep the red so it's more representative of Canada, which seems to be the goal here.
    In summary: Raptors should wear the purple, Huskies should where the red.

    I think they should compromise and go with a blue and black color scheme similar to Duke in the NCAA. Toronto's major pro teams color schemes are currently divided between blue (Leafs, Jays, Argos) and red (FC, Raptors). Since there are so many NBA teams with red and black already (Bulls, Heat, Blazers) why not go to the unique blue and black? Plus, Sactown already dons black and purple, let the Kings have their royal purple. Just a thought.

    I think if they're going to do anything it should be to the blue and white, although I don't really see those colors going with the current Raptors logo(the dino one). Maybe if they lost that one altogether and stuck with just the claw it might work. The jersey's that the Kentucky Wildcats wore this year were the nicest basketball jersey's I've seen yet, royal blue and white(the design and fit were great too). I liked the Huskies jersey's as well but found them to be a bit plain.

    They could definitely be nice if they mixed in some black and "Naismith silver" to the blue and white, but then they would be too similar to Orlando.

    Purple isn't the greatest color marketing-wise, unless you're the L.A. Lakers, which is why i think they got rid of that color scheme. I think the red is here to stay for a while.

    I didn't mind the purple at all and would welcome a move back. I like the purple jerseys of around 2001-2004, but I think people are still scarred by the ugly purple jerseys of the 90s and think of those when they hear a mention of the color purple.

    Purple's a unique color in the league, red, black and white are played out.

    You don't like the early '90s Purple with pinstripes? I still rock my Damon Soddomizer stitched jersey every now and then.

    I agree that red, black and white is played out. But the Lakers, Kings, Suns are rocking purple...purple is not unique

    I dunno about anyone else, but I'll be looking forward to those dates .40. It's a lot easier to relate to those than the Huskies jersey's. Bring us back to the 90's baby, when our team was the... well, shit!
