Pretty obvious we need to copy the jayhawks jersey a bit. Blue and red for Toronto. The answer is right in front of everybody.

The colour scheme is what we mean. Design can be completely different.

Copy is not what we should do, but modeling it after that uniform a little imo would be great. The Raptors will be looking at other uniforms to get ideas, that is obvious. I just hope they look at that one and it has some influence.

I get that, but TL has referenced the Blue Jays with the way they've integrated the red maple leaf into their uniform and I have a feeling we're getting blue/white uniforms with some red, including the red maple leaf.

Could be
It just seems odd to be going with American colors when all the talk has been about rebranding this club to "Canada's" team instead of just TO

I'd be very happy with predominantly blue and white/white with blue ( away and home) with a small red maple leaf incorporated somehow

There was a Huskies pic posted somewhere before with white and blue...i suggested a small red maple leaf to dot the i...just to finish it off and give it a Canadian flavour
That type of thing would be much closer to what the Jays have done

Just my 2 Canadian cents

heres a cool icon, change it to a raptor:



it's comedic like "riggin for wiggings! lottery handle for randle!" but at the same time it has it's seriousness like "we got hansbrough and we are gonna foul hard".

def a blue as leafs and jays are blue. When I think Toronto, blue comes to mind. Also, we should use the kentucky wildcats blue. Not that kansas one. NO red, just the maple leaf emblem

yes, stick with 2 colours, and 1 of the colours should be like a white/black/silver kind of colour, so its more like 1 dominant colour with 1 "accent" colour, too many colours looks like a mess on the jersey

they should just do 1 dominant colour with the white as a home uni and like black for an away

but i don't mind the idea of the blue because the rest of the big name teams in Toronto are blue, just that i'm not sure when people think of a raptor they think of a blue dinosaur
anyways, all of this rebranding is secondary to improving the on-court product, and in fact if they still trot out a below average team with a new re-brand they're just going to look even sillier spending all the time and money to look differently but have the same results
