Back when the name was announced I was listening to it on the Fan 590 (a popular sports radio station here in Toronto), and they stated the winning entry was sent in by a little girl and that she was given a prize pack for her name being selected (i think it was something like season tickets and some jerseys and paraphernalia) . And I remember stating to my brother "So they listened to some kid for the team name". We all hated the name when it was announced.

 

As for in print there was an article that mentioned it in the Toronto Star and if I recall a blurb in Gamepro magazine under their "Entertainment News Section"

 

That's not at all what happened. 

 

The team name was chosen by a fan vote to pick the name.  I should know, I voted in it, for the Raptors.  You're welcome everyone. 

 

The final names to pick from were:

 

Beavers

Bobcats

Dragons

Grizzlies

Hogs

Raptors

T-Rex

Tarantulas

Terriers

Very strange Timberwolves prototype from eBay... it features the Rev30 fabric, the old tree-trimmed collars and use of green, and a weird take on their side striping from that era.

I've never really thought about this before, but it's interesting that the Bombers' primary logo used a color scheme that is almost completely absent from the uniforms (excluding the logos).

I actually have the prototype uniform of the Bombers and the St. Louis Stallions. When I freelanced at the NFL, the unnamed source sold them to me.

That just looks like a Chinese rip off jersey.

I love those last two, even though I know I shouldn’t. 

 

Those Minnesota North Stars jerseys reminds me of the Starter Dallas Stars jerseys that are heavily green and gold, with nary a trace of white. I'm not the biggest fan of the logo in the arm stripes--perhaps numbers would fit there better--or the fact that this was billed as the regular road uniform, but I really like this concept as an alternate. I like the emphasis on gold here and wished that the Stars would do that with a third at some point in the future. (I also have one.)

 

Edited by DustDevil61
Further clarification and punctuation, striked early 1990s "North" from "North Stars," numbers in arm stripes, as an alternate

Yeah it bugged out copying the link and I copied one that was in the place after an ad was loaded. Fixed as quick as I could but looks like you two got there about the same time.

Interesting. 

 

Would love to see a horse like this one against the D as an update to their classic logo.

Wow. So according to the sketch of the uniforms, the original aim was to have the helmet logos meet in the back? Or at least that was something that was considered? It seems kinda early-90s "rad" but at the same time it's something that wasn't done in reality till the Seahawks (also joining forces with Nike) in 2012.

Just came here to post that. He also posted a behind-the-scenes look at his work with Oregon following the Broncos refresh

In the discussion about the Nuggets color changes on Twitter we found out that the roundel pickaxes logo was originally designed by  supposed to become the primary in 1997 and was already approved by Nuggets owner but they forgot to show it to David Stern and it got mothballed until it would wind up recolored as a secondary a decade later. Todd Radom was involved in creating new uniforms (you can see it had side panels) and the mountain/DN Shield popped up
