Default R.I.P. to the purple you will be missed

you will be missed

And finally there's our confused friends in Canada, the Toronto Raptors, who make a most contradictory switch. The Raptors have decided to switch their road unis from the Purple of the Vince Carter era to the more Canada friendly red uniforms. Not too shabby for a team attempting to flaunt their aleigance to their country, but next years elimination of the "TR Maple Leaf" logo is where this change seems to get a bit confusing.

history
















the future is one of red only

As a non-raptors fan, I dug the purple

The red is cool, though. The red and grey claw thing is awesome

I liked the purple road unies. I like the red as well. So I hope that they keep the purple ones as the 3rd uniform.

I can't seem them doing that with the pinstripes for a few more years yet. Maybe on the 15th or 20th season type celebration.

That article was written at the start of this past season. Is there any more recent news regarding the Raps unis for this coming season? I've heard that the red ones will be our permanent road uniforms and that the new home ones will likely be white with red trim. I, for one, wish we used the more colourful Red jerseys as our home ones (kind of like in hockey how they wear the colourful shirt at home and the white shirt on the road, in general). I know they used the red one at home a few times since it was the alternate shirt and it really looked good.
