  1. 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.
  2. Yeah, it's really puzzling that Ottawa and Calgary insist on having the same colours on the same uniform template. Ottawa should be primarily black with red accents, Calgary should be primarily red with black accents. With both teams having red and black prominently, they look like intra-squad games when they play. Calgary ditching the black helmet would go a long way to fixing this. Another worry now would be the Alouettes having a navy blue helmet and navy blue home jersey, similar to the Argonauts. I'd rather have them stick with white helmets, if that's the case.
  3. As mentioned earlier in this thread, teams will be keeping their uniforms the same. However, it was reported that one team would go through a re-branding in 2019, and that appears to be the Alouettes: At least the 2018 multiple helmet thing makes sense now. I wonder if these are the actual designs or just placeholders since the red on blue might be hard to read from a distance. The February release date is supposed to coincide with the release of all of the team's New Era uniforms.
  4. The Browns are 2-0 while wearing their Color Rush uniforms. Too bad they can only wear them once more.

    The Montreal Alouettes wore white helmets with their alternate uniforms today (navy blue numerals on the left side of the helmet). I actually thought it was a pretty good look since it complemented the white socks well.

    That's awesome! I've hoped for a similar CFL database like the Gridiron Uniform Database too. Good for you for taking it on. I've done some research myself, but mainly for the past 30 years. It's pretty difficult finding images for the CFL considering not all games used to even be televised. It looks like you have a good grasp on it since your info looks pretty accurate at first glance, but let me know if you need a hand. Are you also looking at doing a weekly match-up tracker?

    Calgary posted a new uniform combination; outlaw helmet with red jerseys, red pants, and black socks. They're the only CFL team that actually posts their uniform combinations ahead of time, as far as I know. If they continue to wear black helmets for away games, they will have worn their red helmets a maximum of six times out of 18 games. Echoing most comments here, that's a step in the wrong direction.

    NFL 2018 changes

    Wow, I really like that look. It differentiates them from teams that feature heavy black and compliments the white jersey with its purple numbers.

    Such a mistake. I was so happy the stripe was back. I'm hoping at least home uniforms will have it. On another note, the Alouettes showed off their September design. If the Media Guide is any true indicator, they'll go back to the fully coloured version of this logo in October and beyond.

    Boooo, should have been a white alternate for the White Out. Although the script logo might be good since it's reminiscent of the old Jets' sweaters with that script logo.

    I was reading the Alouettes' 2018 Media Guide and this was listed in their uniform history. The helmets here show all of the past logos in red. It's a HUGE missed opportunity if their delta logo is in all red as opposed to red and blue. I guess we'll find out shortly since August is right around the corner.

    What are their actual colours? Orange and grey? And where are you finding these? I tried looking online and can barely find anything and the ticats.ca link doesn't work.

    August should be this, taken from the 1986 season when the team changed their name from Concordes to Alouettes for the 40th anniversary of the franchise. This was the only time that logo appeared on a white helmet. That second pic has pant numbers too!

    I was so surprised these two wore colour on colour for the reasons you mentioned. This one didn't have to because next week's match ups would have. I'm glad they did, it looks ridiculous, but who cares, it's pre-season! Another note: the Lions are wearing orange socks here when they previously wore these uniforms with black socks. I like it, it brightens it up more.

    Funny timing for this thread, Chewbacca! The Alouettes posted this today for the helmets they're wearing this season: https://en.montrealalouettes.com/2018/05/31/your-alouettes-are-making-moves/ If I understand this properly, the team is going to have blank white helmets for their pre-season games and then start the opener, June 16, with retro red wings on the white helmets. It's not clear if they are wearing different helmet logos for June, July, August, and September since Boulay said those months are for different logos (whatever that means). I hope it culminates in new logos for October since they need an upgrade with the current one.
