I don't know, that wordmark pant stripe kinda kills the look for me.

i never said that the Calgary uniforms were anything short of awful haha.

 

 

In fact, this is why it's so surprising haha

The Lions' decision to wear orange socks with their home uniform is an upgrade. It adds some much needed contrast in my opinion.

The Stampeders are the perfect uniform corollary to the Flames. Both are clubs with tremendous potential identity-wise but somehow manage to muck it up with too much black and unnecessary details.

I wonder if we will see the Lions wear their orange socks with their home jersey permanently. That would make their home uniform a little more tolerable until they are able to go back to the drawing board and fix their uniforms.

CVtCaVK.jpgColor-on-color again tonight for the Stampeders as they play Saskatchewan in a Christmas in June game.

 

It looks like Winnipeg will wear a fresh set of jerseys tonight. They’ll be in white for their game against BC. So no color-on-color in that game.

Honestly, all four of the Flames owned teams, including the Flames, have tremendous potential but brutal execution. All of the teams under CSEC (name of the ownership group) have great jerseys in their history but have all since switched to worse sets.

 

The Hitmen with armpit colours (white on the black jersey and black on the white jersey) and black piping on the white with a brutal Rangers/dropsahdow style number font that doesn’t fit with the rest of the brand. I personally could take or leave the black logo on black.

Then the Roughnecks have some pieces but could be improved.

Both those sets are better than what either team wore immediately prior, but nowhere as good as both team’s best look. Much like the Stampeders and Flames.

The oil derrick pattern on the side panel is something I should by every metric hate, but I actually really like.

Did they straight up steal that logo from the Michigan Panthers? Holy s*** that's bad.

I love the idea of the profile mountain lion facing the same direction as the player on both sides of the helmet but what I agree. The cat's head is downward facing instead of looking straight ahead like in the primary BC logo.

 

Hate the orange helmets with the white mountain lion. The latter looks like a big cloud.

Why are the helmets only orange and white, yet the rest of the uniform is primarily black and orange?

In the first year of the new uniform set, they used that helmet combo in the preseason. Likely just testing things out.

Cheers.

Just looks weird not having the color of the uniform in the helmet.

They usually wear the black helmet with an orange lion with that uni. That helmet is for the orange and white set. 

 

And yeah, the idea is pretty much stolen from the Panthers, but Michigan's design is better.

It's only the pre-season and they only play one game at home and on the road.  They normally wear a black helmet with the orange homes and orange helmet with their road whites.Doesn't make much sense to have 2 helmets as it just adds to unnecessary costs.

Hamilton needs to decide whether they want a logo on their sleeves or stripes. Because having both is not a good look IMO.

 

In addition to that, not a fan of black sleeve caps on their white jerseys.

I'd go with just the stripes if I were the Ti-Cats.

On a related note, is the number on the right leg new?  I don't think I've seen that on anybody since the 80s Cowboys.

I vaguely remember either Syracuse or Illinois having jersey number on the hip of the pants at one point.

I think that was right before Donovan McNabb was there. It looks silly on Hamilton just floating there with nothing behind it.

Watched a bit of Lions-Als last night and holy cow BC is one of the worst-dressed teams in North American sports.
