The Toronto Raptors need a change of identity


Ark

Recommended Posts

Even going past the T-Mac era uniforms (which are obviously too 90s :P)' the name "Raptors" itself is very outdated. I think the unis they wear now have an interesting design, but the unique color scheme they once had (purple, red, and black) is now just red and black...

EDIT: I thought they switched the Vince Carter jerseys to be red on the front, but they made the back red as well. So they aren't unique at all anymore.

Who else agrees? Also, what are some suggestions for a new name?

Agreed.

New name = Toronto Irrelevants

How is Raptors outdated? It's a unique name which embodies a very ferocious reptile from way back in the day. Associating it with Jurassic Park is kind of a lame excuse for why it should be changed. You should associate it with the extinct reptile.

If they do rebrand they should go with a more ferocious approach for their name. Bring in new meaner looking logos.

Toronto Contracteds (to go along with the Minnesota Contracteds)

I'm sorry Toronto draws well, they have good ownership, and Basketball is huge in Toronto.

For the name. I'm kinda mull on the Raptors, it's different, which plays well in the NBA. I'm for going back to the Toronto Huskies and rocking those sick throwbacks they pull out a couple times a year.
