Default Raps Original Jersey's: Mason to Oak Quote.

Ummm Ha? If this is old...sorry

Anthony Mason on the Original Toronto Raptors Uniforms: "If I Was You, I'd Fin' Kill Myself." | Complex

Quote:
Though it may not seem like it, sports x style is a combo that goes together more often than you think. Examples of the pairing can be seen in everything from a fan rocking a vintage snapback of their favorite team to the sad but common case of an athlete with an ugly haircut. But as the latter suggests, the combo isn't always a pretty one. Just ask any of the Toronto Raptors who played during the mid '90s.

Members of those teams wore some of the ugliest uniforms in sports history. Anthony Mason and Charles Oakley reportedly thought the same and had these eloquent comments for Toronto players as the Knicks faced the Raptors in 1995:

“Dinosaurs, brotha? If I was you, I’d f—in’ kill myself,” said Mason. Oakley expressed his disgust by saying, "Those jerseys come with cum stains on ‘em?"

Uhh...OK. #nuffsaid?

It makes me laugh when some say we should go back to purple. Are they high or just kidding?

Huskies all the way, though.

It's been talked about a number of times before and I still haven't heard a single rational argument explaining why the team didn't choose the most logical name, the one with history and national significance, opting instead for a public survey and ultimately choosing a completely irrelevant one.

The reason they dismissed Huskies out of hand was because any logo they could have created would have been too similar to the Timberwolves.

Also, ignorant as hell commentary but I don't expect much from professional athletes.

Here's an awesome logo, in proper Toronto blue and white:



As for the similarities to the Timberwolves:

1. Who cares? We were there first.
2. That's what marketing gets paid for. Find the way.

Mavericks and Pistons somehow manage to get away with using the same freaking animal...

Not to mention Heat and Suns, Magic and Wizards...

Life will find a way (yes, the irony of quoting the freaking source of our naming issues, I know).

So all teams have to be blue? I guess TFC should go blue as well? I love our current colour scheme more than those teams to be honest. I especially love our Black road Jersey's.

I was simply illustrating the theme, that's all. And yes, if you ask me, it's great for all the major sports teams from the same city to follow the same colour scheme in their logos.

I prefer our colour scheme. It's all good, because we aren't going to become the Huskie's or copy the colour schemes of the other teams in Toronto. At least i doubt we'd go blue. The Huskie's name isn't going to happen though.

Of course they should have stuck with the blue and remained true to the city's sporting identity.

Red and blacks is ass. Raptors marketing is ass. The team's image is a joke. From day 1. TFC's marketing is just as bad. surprise it's another MLSE team. You know what? I'm sure there were board room discussions about changing the Leafs logo or bringing in another colour to their look. You know why? because Schmuks run (or at least ran) MLSE.
