    Raps jerseys are not ugly or anything, just boring as hell.

    How do we go from Dinos on the front to nothing?

    It's pretty telling that in the segment, there's only a couple seconds of image of the actual Raptors jersey, and about three times that much footage of our mascot. Sounds like what he doesn't like is the whole dinosaur metaphor, which is now actually pretty minimal everywhere other than in the mascot. I bet this guy doesn't even know what the current Raptors uniforms look like. They deserves credit for moving the design in a much more sophisticated, less cartoony direction. I think the Raptors jerseys are middle of the pack... tweak the type a bit, and it would be solid.

    As a western canadian, I do appreciate the canadian touches on the jersey, but I wouldn't want to see the Raptors move any further toward a national identity. The current approach is enough in that regard.

    As a sidebar, I think that one of the great franchise namings was that of the Toronto Blue Jays. Labatt's owned them and their major product is Labatt's Blue and so the baseball team became a great vehicle to get the product name out there as in "your Labatt's Blue Jays baseball" as the saying went.

    oh god, ther really is no accounting for taste is there?

    I think the current set are among the best of the "new era" jerseys. Personally hate the yellow Lakers Jerseys and the Utah ones.
    Im not sure if I should take you seriously after you said you hate the lakers jersey. The Lakers have one of the best colour schemes in the league, you can never go wrong with purple and gold. If you think our current jersey look good then you must not have much taste. I feel its too basic, this jersey feels out of place when you look at other teams in the league. I think the purple jerseys are better looking with the purple front and black backs. The only thing I think that needs to be changed should be the font on the letters possibly something more graphic would be look good.

    we need a change. Something to a different colour way, and logo design on the jerseys. Ours isn't overall ugly, just plain, damn boring.

    They could make the claw into a really nice logo, whether they go back to purple or even blue. The center court right now is probably as boring as a claw gets

    As mentioned above, I don't think he has a problem with the style. It's the fact that our identity comes from the fact that we came into existence at the same time as Jurassic Park. Not much of a legacy to go on. I remember thinking that it was so short sighted at the time. What connection do we have to a dinosaur?! Have to admit, he called us out correctly on that. Does anyone remember that article that once reassigned all the names in the NBA to make them make sense? In an unrelated subject, did anyone else notice that the banner ad on the first page is a Kirsty Alley add for Poise? Who gave them the demographics for the republic? Or does it have to do with my computer? hmmmmm...never mind.

    I meant the jersey's genius. And that wasn't really funny at all, better luck next time.

    Hahaha, nice but I think I'll trust my client list and paycheck to determine my taste rather than you. I'm a graphic artist and straight up, it's YELLOW, not GOLD. They call it gold but it's not even close. Wizards had that awful throwback with gold/black/white scheme on it but at least that was GOLD. The white/purple/yellow Lakers jerseys are pretty tight but the yellow ones are an eyesore.

    Yeah, the only thing worse than purple, would be pink.

    LOL I clearly picked a fight with the wrong guy. I'm just saying the raptors uniforms really needs a complete overhaul. I do agree with is the alternate home jersey for the lakers is pretty dope. glad you pointed out how atrocious the wizards throwback looked.

    What do you guys think about the new threads the nuggets are sporting this year?

    Are you kidding me you must not know what purple represents. its one of the most powerful colours in my opinion.

    Purple combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. Purple is associated with royalty. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.

    better than their more "flamboyant" predecessors but still a little like a bad flashback to the early 80's.

    I'm not too interested in what a colour wheel says about purple. It's still heavily leans towards femininity. There's a reason why you don't see many purple (or pink) cars on the road.

    Or better yet, check the toy section at any department store, and see which two colours dominate the girls' side.
