  1. Wow, they've also worn that combo every time they've played. In the entire history of this match up, both team has worn their primary home look; Cowboys always in whites, Seahawks always in monochrome blue (2002-2018) or blue over silver (1976-2001). Well now I'm rooting for the Seahawks to wear blue monochrome since that's amazingly standardized amidst the Color Rush and alternate age we live in.

    NFL changes 2019

    I hope the league makes an effort to recognize the last two remaining charter members of the NFL - the Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals. They're not scheduled to play one another in 2019, but it would be fun if they played the hall of fame game in retro uniforms or something. And while they're at it, the Cardinals can change their uniforms so they look like a properly storied franchise (even if most of their stories suck).

    Oh baby, that teal with gold accents looks great! It really pops the colour. It's also a nice throwback to the original colour scheme with gold as an accent colour. And a bit of a throwback to the Sacramento Gold Miners.

    Atlantic Schooners Announced as Name of New CFL Team

    Funny enough, I'm from Vancouver, own that Grizzlies jersey, but hadn't thought of that comparison. Good example though. I was more thinking along the lines of the Cleveland Browns' shade of brown (so quite a bit darker) and having the teal fairly light. So, something like this:

    Ya got me, I'm more just making up random marketing speak to get a colour scheme I want to see haha. There are four black teams in the league, so forget that! Upon Google Image searching "schooner", I see some brown in there.

    Coop paints the CFL (2/10:BC Lions)

    I'm not as on board with the team being blue or navy blue primarily because the Argos, Blue Bombers, and Alouettes (in 2019) will be be blue dominant. And then you have the Riders and Eskimos as green dominant. Is there any reason why you chose green? I like grey because no one uses it right now, but as BellaSpurs mentioned, it feels out of place and should be incorporated with the rest of the uniform.

    My vote is for a teal, brown, and white colour scheme. Teal for the ocean, brown for the ship, white for the sails. It's also pretty unique in sports; I remember seeing a baseball team with that scheme (a college team?) and it looked pretty good.

    Atlantic Schooners Announced as Name of New CFL Team

    Not really. It's being done in a very unorthodox way in that they are naming the team before even being granted a conditional expansion franchise (unless that's being announced tomorrow too). And if they can't secure stadium financing and can't get it built, there will be no team (just like what happened in the 1980s).

    That's a good observation, they just seem to love piping and ultra "modern" looks. Although the Roughnecks look good. Also, apparently teams in the Grey Cup game are not permitted to wear alternate uniforms anymore, so the Stampeders are wearing their normal red jerseys with Ottawa in white: https://calgarysun.com/sports/football/cfl/calgary-stampeders/stampeders-to-wear-traditional-red-jerseys-for-grey-cup-game Saskatchewan was the last to wear alternates in the Grey Cup in 2010.

    2018 CFL Uniforms

    The Grey Cup match up is set, and with the West being the home team, we get to avoid Calgary's crappy away look. So which will it be and which looks better? Home red jerseys or black outlaw jerseys?

    Montreal Alouettes teasing re-brand

    I love the simplicity, it's such a step up from the cartoon bird logo. I'm excited to see the finished product. I hope they have a good colour balance with the new uniforms though, as opposed to just red and blue with minimal white. The BC Lions have demonstrated that with their black and orange uniforms that a touch of white is sorely needed when blending the two primary colours together.

    2018 CFL Uniforms

    Well, the reason is that they wear them for the Labour Day Classic every year and Winnipeg plays in that game every year. Since returning to the West division, Winnipeg has played in Regina twice in a regular season on two occasions, in 2015 and 2017, and Saskatchewan has worn their regular uniforms. 2015: 2017:

    My CFL Uniform Database

    Wikipedia has kept good track of them through the 2017 season (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_jersey#Canadian_football). Otherwise, only Edmonton, Calgary, and Montreal have worn them all the way through 2018 (Although with a Montreal re-brand, they'll likely stop wearing theirs next year).
  14. The scrapped idea thing makes sense since you mentioned that the Ravens aren't scheduled to wear their black alternates at all this year. So maybe there is/was a white alternate in the pipeline.
  15. You mean their alternate uniforms? They've worn nothing but white helmets all year in what I assume would be to maintain some level of thematic consistency with the alternating helmet logo thing. So you think these are a placeholder eh? I'd like the silver helmets too since I associate them with the Alouettes' success from 1996-2012, but I think they're staying away from it.
