  1. 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.

    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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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).
  5. Because they can't have the inmates running the prison.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. But now they can wear retro jerseys in a few years and sell those! If they went the Carolina route and stuck with the same jerseys, they would never have that option. It is a business, after all.
  11. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    Maybe the NFL thought that the Jags' current uniforms and the Rams' mismatched uniforms in the same game would make everyone's eyes melt out of their heads so they let the Rams wear their throwbacks for this away game.

    It's sad to think that the Rams will probably wear the same thing in Jacksonville in two weeks.
  13. infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL Week 3

    I actually liked the Chicago-Pittsburgh match-up because those teams actually played against each other in the 1940s, so there's historical significance there. I prefer this so much more than against the Buccaneers. It would probably be better if they limited the usage to just once per season though (like Green Bay and Pittsburgh do with their bad-looking throwbacks).

    They wore silver pants at home against the Roughriders (wearing white) last year, so it's allowed. But after last year's flirtation with white helmets and pants, the Als seem to have gone there full-time, since silver hasn't been seen on the pants or helmets at all through the first eight games this year.

    I liked the cambridge blue socks too since they actually fit well with the helmet stripe (which doesn't normally fit the uniform at all). Fun fact: as of a few years ago, teams must wear different coloured pants. Since the Argos were the designated home team and chose to wear white pants, the Alouettes couldn't wear their white pants and were forced to wear blue.
