Pet Peeve and Offical Plea
 
I watched the Wiz feed last night, and regulary watch NBA stuff on RapsTV.

TSN
SprotsNet
Score

All still do it.

I am going to blast e-mails to all of them to change our logo on the broadcasts from

to

http://www.windfallclothing.ca/Raptorsclawlogo.JPG

I know it's not a big deal, but everytime I see it it pisses me off.

NBA.com still uses that logo too.

haha ... I was thinking the same thing when I was watching something on NBATV the other night. I think it was the fantasy hoops show and they still use the old logo too. Enough already. We changed the logo well over a year ago, you'd think the NBA would get with the times too. :grrr:

It takes 2-3 years before a logo phases out. The Raptors started using the claw as the primary logo only last season, so the old logo should be phased out either by next season or the season after next.

AFAIK, the Score uses the claw regularly. Every other station (TSN, Sportnet probably uses it still - and I'm not surprised. They're a bunch of puckheads)

Why in god name would it take 2-3 years...I venture to guess if any other team in the NBA did it..it would be done presto.

and what does AFAIK mean?? Ajax term I am unaware of?:cheeky-smiley-013:

I think the Raptors have to apply to phase the logo out. I'm not sure if they have done that.

AFAIK - As far as I know.. I thought you were hip to the game being at Yonge and Eligible...

THANK YOU BENZO!!!!


Seriously, this has been bothering me for the last two years. The claw logo looks real cool IMO. I think it's one of the best in the NBA, but it's lame that it doesn't really get recognized that much as the team's primary.

The old logo ain't that bad... it's just that it still has the purple which no longer fits in at all.

Acutally, one idea i had was to keep the old logo, but to edit it and get rid of the purple. Just make it Red white and Black. It would actually look good IMO. (come on you photoshoppers, give it a go and see what it would look like).
