well isn't there posters from across Canada in this forum posting about the raptors, i'm from bc never been to Toronto but i'm a die hard raptor fan, watch almost every game

you ask why, well every game they have goes national across Canada, if your a basketball fan you usually have two teams, Toronto and whatever team that is fun to watch in the playoffs

whenever you come across any basketball fans in Canada you usually end up talking about the raptors,

so when you here bc or tl say they want to make this canadas team there is big reason why,

by the way the blue and white jerseys would look sick, obviously the writing of huskies is boring, but you stream line the jersey using blue and white and using different lettering for with Toronto or the Raptors home and away, its a way to blend old and new and who doesn't like that

honestly I think the rating have to do more with hockey and most people just wanting to watch that, the few basketball fans that live across Canada end up watching nba and in Canada that means Raptors whether you like it or not

by the way exhibition games across Canada are sellouts

lets be honest not many people in Canada watch basketball, but the ones that do usually watch the raptors, the rating for basketball will never be as high as curling and hockey but you have to think the Raptors are playing to a niche market, and there are fans of basketball across Canada and majority of those fans are Raptors fans and the ones that aren't are usually lakers fans,

The rebranding idea got a lot of buzz down south today. Jim Rome went on about it extensively, quoting Leiweke saying a name change was in the conversation, and saying himself that it has to be a very short conversation. Around the Horn on espn finished off with the topic, making fun of the 1.5 foot size typical of the Raptor dinosaur species.

Same avy? Anyway, not a fan of the belt thing and the logo is a straight rip off but this is something that can work with a couple changes. Oh and that leaf/ball logo on the shorts almost looks like a maple leafs type of logo, at least from a distance.

What would you think of keeping the Raptor name but still changing the colours to blue and white?

BTW - I stole the avatar from him...lol

I'm not big on blue and white. But that might work, maybe with some red incorporated somehow ala kansas uniforms.

White claw on a blue uni might look ok.

name and color scheme could work...but i would suggest combining them with the "Project Thirty Four" style in the previous post (much more modern look)...use the basketball/leaf logo on the shorts (not a fan of the dog)

lastly...i would replace the dog (on basketball logo ) with a small red Maple Leaf...maybe even "dot the eye" (on jersey) with a small red Maple Leaf as well

if you're going to rebrand this as a Canadian team you need the red leaf (in fact, i think it's essential)...otherwise you're going to alienate a lot of fans across the country because all they'll see are Toronto Maple Leaf colors

right now as is...
too Toronto Maple Leafs...won't work nationally

add the red leaf...
more of a Blue Jays feel...Canada's team

I have no real problem with the Raptor name or the current color scheme, but I would like to see a new uniform without those damn chevrons. I like those project whatever ones that were posted here - pretty sharp and unique.

Love the Huskies in blue above as an option if Raptors is going to be scrapped, but that dog logo needs work.

Aren't Huskies domesticated? Not that it should be placid looking thing with big puppy dog eyes or anything, but the Dire Wolf being used certainly doesn't bring a Husky to mind at all.

I also like Shadowfax's idea of dotting the I with a red maple leaf for a subtle dash of color and Canadiana.
