Default Raps Vs Tors

Which nickname do you guys dig more....

Not many people know about the nickname "The TORS"....most call them the RAPS......My friends and I started "THE TORS" trend and it just makes more sense.....TORonto rapTORS.....see you got the "TOR" in both names.....plus it don't sound like a brand of music.....

Let the reign of THE TORS begin!!!

Hahahaha, no.

Raps or Raptors. Actually, during some of the dark times me and my friend would call them the Turds which is actually close to your "Tors", but way better.
