Default Rename the team!

The Raptors has always been a terrible name.

So, lets brainstorm and come up with something better.

- Traditional, but overused by other teams.

(Red) Dragons
- I like The Dragons, no one has it yet. Also, Red Dragons sounds even better, IMHO.

Toronto Union Basketball Club
- I like the idea of a steampunk/railroad theme. It has blue collar, industrial implications, and it fits well with the history of the city. Other ideas along this line: Locomotive, Boilers, Steam Engine, Railers. The mascot could be an 1800s era conductor with a handlebar mustache. A steam whistle could be installed at the ACC for celebrations.

Does anyone else really dislike the team name?

Does anyone else think they have some better ideas?
