Cool Bring Back Huskies!

Bullets have become Wizards without having to move - why don't the Raps follow?

It's time to admit that naming the team after a movie might have been a good marketing plot, but also one that failed to take into account the traditional and the cultural aspects of this country and this city. Seeing them playing in those cool, clean unis, I can't help but wonder if the team's fortunes and perhaps even its mental toughness wouldn't be different if they were named after a proud Canadian beast rather than a bunch of pre-historic bones.

In short, I want the team to change their name to Toronto Huskies, full time. They could have "Raptors nights" once in a while for those hard-core Barney fans.

Do we have to put a thread like this up everytime they wear those semi-awful uni's? They won't change the name, give it a rest already.

I want them to change their name too. I love the Huskies better then the Raps. Also, the Huskies play better then the Raptors do

This from the guy who makes about 287625482 different posts asking for Triano's head after every loss? That's funny.

Umm of course if they do decide to change to Huskies we will probably get new Uniform as well but a better design with actual Huskie Logo. Let this happen BC for a new generation 2010.

Delusional


Ain't gonna happen. Plus we have enough boring blue and white uniforms in the sports landcsape in this city. They're boring coulours. If this did happen (has no chance at all) i'd hope they'd at least keep the current coulour scheme of red/white for home jersey's, and red/black for away jersey's.

Yeah, and most here bark daily about how they want him canned. What's you're point? Me wanting a bad coach fired, menas what exactly in reguards to a stupid uniform and a name change that will never happen?

I do find it kind of odd how you can think so low of triano yet give colangelo a free pass when he's the one who put together this soft ass team(around bosh) and he's the one who hired this coach to a multi year deal as well as the one who refuses to fire him

you must love nice suits

that one was such an obvious choice too. I remember it being talked about when they were deciding the name and i thought it sounded great for a basketball team.

This stuff honestly makes me shake my head at the marketing idiots who worked for the franchise back then.

What a complete and royal fuck up they did 15 years ago.

Again, you pay little to no attention at all. I've said several times, the biggest mistake BC has done was keeping Triano and it's his mistake.

BTW, i like nice suits and mouthguards. lol
