    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.

    2018 CFL Uniforms

    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!

    2018 CFL Uniforms

    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.

    2018 CFL Uniforms

    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.

    Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    I'm hoping for that too, but I have a feeling they will want to wear them at home at some point. If they get to wear them two times plus another for Color Rush, they could. They also have a prime time away game at Dallas, so that's three away games in which they'll likely have to wear colour jerseys.

    Fixing the CFL

    I love your Alouettes logo and I hope they adopt it. I'm not a big fan of just moving to a retro design, so I'd like to see more of the uniform design being drawn upon your logo. For Calgary, I agree they should switch to red and white or at least more dominant red and white with black as an accent colour. Black as an alternate is still important to their identity (being the first CFL team to wear an alternate uniform back in the 90s), so incorporating a little still makes sense. Because of that, silver doesn't work for me there. Adding black outlines to the numbers and maybe the striping would make it pop a bit more. Edmonton's striping is great like that. I actually thought their 2012-2015 jerseys were perfect and was disappointed they reverted to the 2005-2011 design. I like how you actually made a gold jersey look good for them. I think the numerals on the green jersey need outlines just to make it consistent with the other two. For Hamilton, I like your helmet and pant stripes, but they're inconsistent with the jersey stripes. I'd say pick one or the other and go with that striping throughout. I really like your Saskatchewan designs all around. The primary home and aways just need shoulder numbers.It's a shame that the franchise moved away from silver since I think silver/grey/pewter would be a good accent colour for them. The wheat pattern elements are also really nice and have a futuro-retro feel to them. Ottawa's current uniforms are bland, but the plaid version you posted is excellent. I have no idea why they didn't incorporate plaid in the 2016 overhaul. I'd add plaid to the pant stripe just to maintain consistency with the jersey. Maybe even on the helmet stripe. My Lions are a templated mess right now and your concepts are a definite upgrade. I actually like their orange helmet though since three other teams currently use black helmets as well. My main gripe with BC's current home look is the absence of white and the away's absence of black. Your designs provide a lot better brand cohesion (although the third option looks like a mix between a few different eras, so it looks odd to me). The Argos need a Cambridge blue jersey and you went with a great design. Their only other good option is to go with the current Oxford blue jersey and invert the blues. I'm looking forward to the Bombers' alternate you have in store. Do you have a Halifax concept planned?

    2017 CFL Uniforms

    It's based on the host team's division. The Grey Cup was in Ottawa this year, so the East champion was the designated home team. Similarly, last year the Grey Cup was in Toronto, so the East champion was the home team. In 2015, the Grey Cup was in Winnipeg, so the West Champion was the home team.

    2017 CFL Uniforms

    The Stampeders have been to five Grey Cup games in the last ten years. In the two wins they were wearing their traditional red helmets, and in each of the three losses, they were wearing black helmets. Take a hint, Stampeders! Stop (2012) wearing (2016) black (2017) helmets.
  9. I like that the Titans have worn their baby blue jerseys three times and they've been for away games each time. I wish more teams did that with their alternate jerseys to keep consistent looks when they're either on the road or at home.

    CFL in Halifax coming soon?

    I hope they have Atlantic Canada residents name the team in a fan poll. They should let the name grow organically through fan discussion as opposed to letting the owner name the team *cough* Ottawa Redblacks *cough* Vegas Golden Knights. I'm open to having the team named the Atlantic Schooners (the article indicated it would reflect all of the Atlantic), but if a better brand can be created, I'm game for that too. I hope the colour scheme involves something not currently in the CFL like teal, brown, purple, grey, etc. The original colours from the 1980s were silver, blue and brass, but there are enough blue teams in the league already (three out of nine).
  11. Because they can't have the inmates running the prison.
  12. At least it's an actual colour on colour match up. Out of the first ten weeks (and not including week 1), there has only been one other colour on colour match up and that was the Rams at 49ers. It kind of defeats the purpose if it's just monochrome games.
  13. Teams are able to wear alternate jerseys in the playoffs without restriction, right? There is still hope for the Jags. With that being said, if the Rams host a playoff game, I wonder if they would wear their alternate uniforms.

    NHL Adidas Redesign

    I really like the teal jersey for the Islanders. You took a blight on their history and turned it into a positive. Their black jerseys have been garbage and an orange would have been too similar to the Oilers.
  15. I'm not colour blind, but I think if the Patriots had worn their regular home silver/blue/silver versus the Buccaneers' all red, it should have been easy to tell the two apart. Like goforbroke said, it's really Monochrome Rush, which I don't think any of us are really that excited to see.
