    Default Marc Stein ESPN.com insulting our Camouflage Uniforms.

    Last Week: 24 It was 1:44 a.m. Monday when I got my first glimpse of the Raptors' camouflage look on NBA TV. April Fools' must work differently in Canada, because the Raps wore those hideous unis for a full 48 against the Wiz instead of just circulating a bogus picture earlier in the day to scare their fans and playing in their true colors.
    http://espn.go.com/nba/powerrankings...r/2012/week/14 Link to post.

    Good new is we moved up in the rankings from 24 to 22. What gives with these American so called sports experts anyway? Are they now fashion experts? Surely he must have know why the team was wearing the uniforms. Not sure how many times Canadians have publicly insulted the American Veteran salutes but I am pretty sure it was not done by sports athletes or commentators.

    What do you guys think? Am I Making big a deal out of this? What gives?

    I actually think they're really cool. I like them.

    Anyway, this is just one guy and this is just a basketball jersey. This isn't "America insulting Canada's Vets".

    Good point. Guess he didn't realize that this is not the first time they had them on!

    The jerseys are horrendous. I would rather have the original Raptor jerseys with the eyesore cartoon Raptor on the side, and the jagged pin stripes...

    Seriously? "Horrendous"?



    I don't get it but then again, I like camo in general.

    Red on the camo is probably a bad military omen, no?

    Anyway, I hope this turns into a tradition and I hope these things sell poorly because... Well I want one but only at a discounted rate.

    Yes, a tradition would be a great idea. And I too would buy one, if the money was going towards the vets and families serving a the moment.

    Personal opinion, of course, but yes, I think they're hideous. I'd be just as appalled at the uniforms if we had a "Where's Waldo" appreciation night.

    Idk they're kinda cool. I wouldn't pay for one for myself...but I definitely wouldn't go as far as to say they are horrendous. If I was given one I'd rock it.
