    Default What happened to the black jerseys?

    Sorry if its been discussed before... just curious because I really like those jerseys, and they're still selling at the ACC/Real Sports, but they have not been worn this season by the Raptors.

    I'm a big supporter of the name change to the Huskies. It's so lame that T.O. bought into the dinosaur craze spurred on by a Spielberg movie. Very sad.

    No way, "Raptors" pwns "Huskies". I'd much rather have the team be named after a dinosaur then a dog.

    Raptors is much better than Huskies from a marketing standpoint and a cool standpoint. Dino's were cool way before Spielberg made them more popular just out check their history...

    for me its more of the fact that T.O was the Huskies way back in the beggining of the NBA, we should have been more proud of the origins of NBA Ball in T.O & kept the name...Huskies...besides i dont think there was ever any Raptors in Toronto EVER!....i am glad they got rid of the purple atleast.... nothing more GAY then purple dinosours LOL

    LOL!! seriously... the name "Raptors" should depict a savage predatory image... instead, they pick Barney as the logo.

    i stand corrected.

    but you gotta admit, the mascot does look like the illegitimate sibling of Barney.

    I think actually winning games and being dominant with a certain swagger on the court is a far better form of intimidation than being named after a tough animal of any sort.

    Q: Not sure if this has been asked before, but what happened to the black away uniforms? I don't recall them wearing them this year.

    A: Glad you asked.

    I’m told be highly reputable sources that, finally, some manufacturing issues have been resolved and the uniforms are either here or on their way any day and, yes, they will trot them out sometime in the future.

    Don’t know when that’ll be, but it should be soon and the people will be pleased.

    Good find. Their black third jersey is their best looking jersey in my opinion.
