Anyways, the CFL been a quite old league, I simply dont understand why they dont stick to their heritage. All teams should wear unis à la 70s as those were the best.

 

This years BC Lions are a atrocity, MTL extanding the use of their current with white helmets is fine but definitely, they are up for a change, ask SAKS fans what they'd lile.. TOR is OK, etc. Twitter things on OTT pants are terrible idea. Etc, so many things to do to get things right.

 

Yeah the sooner BC in particular realizes what a mistake they made and roll back to their uniforms from 2015 the better.

That is a beautiful uniform. Probably one of the few CFL uniforms that would work great as a NFL uniform. 

 

NFL? Looks like Mark Brunell liquidated his alma mater's old unis in bankruptcy court.

Those helmets ruin everything. Just change the freaking mask already.

Really, how hard is it?

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The CFL is set up in a way that there should be no helmet crossover between teams. 

BC: Orange

Calgary: Red
Edmonton: Yellow
Hamilton: Black
Montreal: White
Ottawa: Silver
Saskatchewan: Green
Toronto: Blue
Winnipeg: Gold

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.

Because it's the CFL, where well-designed uniforms are frowned upon.

I agree the Argos are soooooo close. Lose the blue stripe on the helmet that matches nothing, go with white masks, extend that pants stripe all the way instead of truncating it, and add a pair of striped white socks that match the jersey. Take those relatively easy steps, and that's a top 5 NFL look.

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.

I love the single light blue stripe on the Argos' navy helmets. Not crazy about the same stripe on the white helmets. Toronto should just stick with the much improved navy helmets and call it a day.

It's a crime that the Stamps have not gone back to this distinctive classic.

Certainly seems like it doesn't it...they should stick with the red and use their alternate as needed. Ditch the black totally, it's just not right for the Stamps.

I'd give the Eskimos uniforms a solid 9/10. The changes that need to be made are enlarging the helmet logo and making the jersey stripes look like they aren't just slapped on there. Move them to the sleeves and call it a day.

I agree, four teams use black helmets; BC, Ottawa, Hamilton and Calgary. I understand black is nemero uno when it comes to marketing, but please!

Hamilton should get rid of their yellow pants. Black pants make their uniform look better.

Edmonton just needs to revert to the 80s logo.  The current logo is quite a drop-shadowed mess.

I would like to see them make the striping the same.  The helmet stripes are different from the jersey sleeve stripes, which is different from the pants stripes.  I also wish that they'd add some TV numbers to the jerseys.  To me, the lack of TV numbers makes the uni look amateur.

Actually, I think that they should get rid of the black pants. Yellow pants look good on the road, and that all-black look (at least in my opinion) is their worst look. What Hamilton needs most right now though, is a win
