    These changes have already been discussed somewhere. I like the idea of the maple leaf, but the claw was about the only good thing about the Raptor name.

    Time to go Huskies. Smart, strong, resilient, half-wolf, wild, northern, team-work.

    I love those no-nonsense Huskies jerseys.

    The Huskies jerseys make the Raptors look like a college or high school team, and the name/logo only further perpetuates the stereotype of Toronto/Canada being a frozen wasteland.

    As for removing the claw and replacing it with the Maple Leaf, I'm all about marketing the team to the Canadian market, but this is getting pretty ridiculous. The current management has totally stripped the identity of the original Raptors franchise, which had a distinctly Toronto feel to it, and replaced it with a generic Team-Canada replica of an NBA team.

    Colangelo et al have hijacked the franchise that I grew up loving and re-branded it with an identity I have a hard time relating to, at least from a nostalgic perspective.

    It looks like crap! why would they put a red maple leaf on the back? everyone knows we're from Canada, we're not a hockey team! I wish someone other than MLSE can buy the raptors and separate them from the Leafs! we're doomed!

    I think the whole jersey should be changed time to bring in something new and innovative

    Call us the Huskies AND change the uniform. The addition of that maple leaf only makes us even closer resemble a sh@$% basketball team that we just witnessed this summer, Team Canada. It's like having Leo Rautins smearing a turd mark on your jersey.

    I really wish they would bring purple back. That gave the team a distinct identity, since nobody else in the league had it as their primary color (to the best of my knowledge). Purple also looked sleek and sexy with black, and made for a very pleasing uniform.

    I think we should leave the claw. I mean feeling the need brand the jersies with a leaf will garner more negative press. Most ignorant American media outlets will find a reason to criticise. The leaf is already on the alternate jersey. Why do we need it now?

    So your saying that the Minnesota being called the Timberwolves perpetuates the stereotype of Minneapolis being a frozen wasteland as well. Minnesota is probably the closest thing to Canada climate and cultural wise outside this country so....

    I don't like this. What was the problem with last year's jersey? Do we seriously need to put a maple leaf on the back? -- Is this team representing Canada now?

    This reeks of MLSE.

    Man, I hate that they took the claw away, replacing it with the f***ing maple leaf. Lame, lame, lame. Easy to imagine the kind of pro-corporate non-Raptors fan who made that decision. Not unlike whoever dragged the whole Huskies thing from out of the trash-pile. (Cuz) whatever a failed (and losing) franchise that existed for one year back in 1946-47 has to do with the Toronto Raptors of today, I’ll never understand. Except for someone -- probably that same old lady who removed the claw -- in MLSE earning a fat bonus for coming up with another way to separate a few sleepy Raptors fans from more of what’s in their wallets. It’s bonus time, yet again, at MLSE.

    Default Not really that much of a change but

    I like it! The spacing with the letters and numbers look better. I like em' better than last years jersey's. Who cares how the US media is going to take it. There's only one NBA team in all of Canada, we should represent our country since its such a unique and special place. Keep the leaf!

    My wish is that the raptors would change the franchise back to the Huskie's theme. That jersey is sweet!
