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Even going past the T-Mac era uniforms (which are obviously too 90s :P)' the name "Raptors" itself is very outdated.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

You could even tie the whole dinosaur thing into that.

Story B: Red Wings go undefeated and score 100 goals in every game. They also beat a team comprised of Godzilla, the ghost of Abraham Lincoln, 2 Power Rangers and Betty White. Oh, and they played in the middle of Iraq on a military base. In the sand. With no ice. Santa gave them special sand-skates that allowed them to play in shorts and t-shirts in 115 degree weather. Jesus, Zeus and Buddha watched from the sidelines and ate cotton candy.

How is Raptors outdated?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.

I think they're ok. It's a lame name, but unique and not poorly branded on their part.
