Tough choice. Do we want a name that is prehistoric and extinct or do we prefer to be dogs?

I always love the fact this always seems to come up.


Bitove Jr. and his idea of making fans vote for a name was the most retarded idea ever

Agreed, and I fear they will do the same with the "rebranding". They seriously better not fuck up the next uniforms, court etc........

Can we keep the raptor name and just rebrand to birds? Raptors = hunters, and use some cool hunting bird as our mascot. or are birds lame as well? Lets just change our name every 8 years to the most trending movie at the time, we missed the "Toronto Harry Potters" but maybe we can be named the "Avengers" or "Hero's"

I never understood the obsession with huskies. They're like the most fluffy and friendly canine you could think of. They'd instantly be viewed as the T'wolves harmless cousins or something, it has "soft" written all over it.

Just stick with Raptors pls.

Its boring and stupid and has nothing to do with Toronto except the last time someone used it and it was a bad idea then?

... and they are known to very occasionally attack children, like any dog can, except the results are tragic. Not sure anyone at MLSE would care about that.

Pelicans is the shittiest name.

Toronto Gryffindors would have been hilarious.

But please instead for hogtown....don't even have to change the colour to something not red and white.

part of me doesn't care and can't be bothered, but another part of me just wants them to get this name change over with already because as we all know Raptors is a stupid name.

Haven't they said they're only changing the colors (maybe logo too I'm not sure) and NOT the name? I recall hearing that when they made :drizzy: Global Ambassador.

The problem is that IF you go with a new name like f.e. Huskies you have to do a full makeover and that means changing colors and unis as well. A much heard suggestion is taking on the Leafs colors, which means you'd call yourself Huskies AND wear the blue and white, which alltogether makes you look waaay too much like the T-wolves in practically every way.

There are no middle roads imho. Taking Huskies, Hogs, Razorbacks or whatever as our new name while keeping our current colors is foolish if you ask me, kind of a half assed job...

I think at the end of the day I don't want us to change our brand, although I wouldn't mind going back to the purple/black/red.

Did I say Leafs? I meant Jays off course. The Leafs don't have red in their unis if I'm correct. I hardly even know those teams or what they wear lol.

So the flag of Toronto is blue and white? Okay, perhaps it makes sense for the Raps but I wouldn't be much of a fan since there already are too many teams with this color scheme...

Yeah I hate blue/white.....boring and over done. But we'll see. I have little hope that I will love our next uniforms. I can hope for like and go from there.
