  1. USA-Mexico-Canada Joint Bid for 2026 World Cup

    Currently, yes, that is true about BMO. But the north end of the stadium (which previously had seating but was torn down in the latest remodel to help make the place suitable for the CFL) has enough room to expand/add temporary seating. I'm not worried about Toronto. I believe (without googling this) they almost had 40 thousand with the expanded seating that was added for the Grey Cup last year (and ended up being used for the MLS Cup as well) Montreal on the other hand, I am. Olympic stadium will be 50 years old at that time and who knows what shape it will be in. I understand too that Saputo, due to the fact that it was built originally to be a D2 stadium, is at it's maximum now and expanding it any further is not an option. Unless there's a new stadium tied into some kind of attempt to get baseball back...which is for another thread....I'm really not sure that Montreal is in the running though it absolutely should be.

    This was a good one. I laughed quite a bit. To Mike's point about the original Raptor's uniforms: I was born in '85 and grew up in the Toronto area as well. So we're kind of cut from the same cloth in that regard but I do love those uniforms. I admit they aren't the best of all time and maybe I am just hanging on to the fact that I was the first kid in grade 5 to have had a Raptor's jersey so I was cool for about a week, but I still have it in my collection and love it. But I'm just waiting for the black uniform with the gold numbers and lettering that's like that metallic gold (you know, the kind that shines when the light bounces off it. "bling") that and the word mark on it will be "The 6ix". It's going to suck so hard. Greg, I laughed my ass off when you said that Philly is "sixering...an active 6".

    Yeah, I recall those throwbacks @nash61. I thought it was cool they brought back the paw logo. Really liked that they did that. I don't know if it's the lack of a helmet stripe or if I just prefer the black as the base but I do prefer the black helmets with the paw logo. This picture gives a better idea of the striping on the helmet: To your point: I'd agree that orange is unique and they should own it. It's better than any white, grey or, black helmet (with the exception, in my opinion, of the black one I posted) that they've had before.

    I always loved these uniforms worn in the 60's: I admit the orange is unique though, I just like the paw print as a logo better. Can't even explain why other than "I just do" haha.

    I have very fond memories of the Argos logo with Jason and the shield but as you say, it had too many elements. I was never a fan of when the Argos made the second blue that teal-ish colour. All in all, it just isn't my choice Argos logo though it is associated with my favorite time in their history. I agree, the current shield logo is a very nice logo. I'm not even suggesting they change it. It's strong and should stay. I'm simply saying, as an overall uniform, that late 80s set is my favorite. The logo isn't the world's best but a football as a boat has a very long history of being the Argos logo so there is some nostalgia that makes me appreciate it.
  6. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    Yeah, You are correct. Thank you for correcting me on that. If i'm not mistaken that was the last time we got the "football boat" logo as the primary logo on a helmet. I will fully admit that is a big reason I love that set.
  7. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    Oh yeah, that'd be awesome!
  8. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    Can't agree more. I'd rather they have the 2 tone helmet than the "all black". But why they ever bothered to change is confusing, they went from overall unique to just "another team". Yup. This is page 8 of this thread and I probably have said it 8 times, last year's white helmet is the solution BUT if they only wanted 1 stripe, then they should have gone with the current blue helmet. That said, the more I dig into the Argos uniform history the more I like the early 90s set. There was a throwback set (pic below) that I would love to see them go back to.

    Final week! Last chance to throw your name in the mix for a ULL franchise.
  10. Basically a Sports Show

    My 2 cents on why/how I listen: Apple Podcast, I'm subscribed so it's nice and easy. I don't recall exactly when I started listening, Andy was still in weekly, but he didn't stick around too much longer. Maybe 2 months? Anyways, I know I found it on the boards and it was one of the first podcasts (after a local Toronto show that I loved but it is no longer "Bite Radio") I listened to. I echo the sentiments of just about everyone else that it's nice to listen to sports talk that isn't so darn serious and isn't focused on 1 specific sport. Throw in the CCSLC references and some pop culture at times, and it's very relate-able. I currently subscribe to about 20 podcasts (I've basically given up on radio) on various topics (wrestling, comedy, interviews, D and D) and there's about 10-20 more that I'll just listen to when I like the topic or guest that week, a lot of which are sports pods. I have even started my own podcast (many thanks to Greg for all this help with that). But BASS and the 30 for 30 podcasts are the only sports podcasts I subscribe to and don't get sick of.

    I'd love the sock to be white too. reverse that look you suggest for home @BJ Sands and use last year's white helmet with it.
  12. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    Yeah. @nash61, that helmet line up would be great. Not the best picture in the world but I think the Argos wearing blue helmets and pants with the white shirt is their best look this year.....but the socks need stripes so badly. I know this isn't an original thought but it remains true; they just look like yoga pants when the socks are the some colour as the pants. I'm a broken record at this point but so close Argos. White face mask and some sock stripes and this look is so much better.
  13. 2017 CFL Uniforms

    Fix that and Winnipeg is top of the league. to @bleuet's point, so many little tweaks would make the CFL much better. The Argos should be using the white helmet they used last year (In case I haven't said that enough, lol) Calgary needs to drop the black helmet, Hamilton needs the yellow stripe back on the helmet. So close for a lot of the teams.

    **Bump** We've had 1 owner return so there is only 1 spot left! You have until July 28 to submit your bid.

    Couldn't agree more. That's exactly it. While I admit, the grounds crew has done an amazing job of painting over the lines, I'm sure there is no interest in dealing with a large logo.
