        Couldn't they find a replacement Raptor? Something tells me this is part of the whole rebranding thing...
        It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

          I doubt it's a conspiracy. If they wanted to rebrand the mascot, they could just rebrand the mascot without any questions asked (the guy inside the suit is what matters). This is a legit injury.

          EDIT: I think they will find someone else to wear the suit in the coming weeks.

            "A Raptors spokesperson said they have a plan in place to replace the mascot. There was no immediate word if it would involve an inflatable version of the team’s new global ambassador, Drake."

              Maybe not a conspiracy but I have a feeling the new mascot's number will change from 95 to 16 (or 2016)

                They do have a replacement already lined up for opening night. But honestly, who saw "THE" raptor guy blowing out his achilles during a routine PR/school visit in Halifax? He sure does go all out, all the time!

                  According to Eric Koreen (@ekoreen), he blew his achilles doing a back flip.

                      Wouldn't be surprised. Seems like they are trying to get rid of anything that is even remotely connected to the 'losing culture' associated with the team from day 1 until now. Sacrificing the mascot is a bit much, but you never know. I wouldn't be surprised to see a feng shui master re-arranging the ACC to improve our luck. lol.

                        It's the rebranding thing! Lieweke waited outside the Raptors' dressing room and broke his knee with a hockey stick! The opening night mascot is gonna be a Husky!

                          And then glass breaks and Stone Cold Steve Austin comes out, gives Drake a stunner and puts the belt around the Husky's waist.

                              and then Dmx comes out to perform "Ruff Ryder's" as the Raptors new theme
