Recommended Posts

Ottawa should have a black helmet, Calgary a red helmet.

Calgary is really the reason that the problem of similar looking teams exists in the first place.  I am with you that white is not Ottawa's best helmet, but it would be nice if them and the Ti-Cats could have different lids from each other.  Anyone willing to buy into plaid for the RedBlacks?!?  Whoever designed Jacksonville's previous set surely would think it is a good idea!  LOL   As for Ottawa and white, I suggested that one: a - because they have worn it recently; and b - because they were a team that was all over the all-white pants and top in the 80's, so it would suit that history.

Only as a striping pattern, not as the entire helmet. Maybe they could go the old Rutgers route with the scarred up steel design?

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.

If they're bringing it back by popular demand...then I motion for an electoral college to be established on the matter in the future.

They were suppose to have a plaid helmet to go along with their plaid alternate jersey, but I don't think they ever actually worn them.  Probably for good reasons as it was hideous.

The plaid helmet was a bit out there...but a plaid center stripe would look nice.

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.

They should have kept the helmets that go with it. It doesn't look right.

For some reason the Riders always love wearing the retros vs. Winnipeg. As a Bomber fan it feels like it's the only uniform we ever see when Winnipeg is at Mosaic.

Well, the reason is that they wear them for the Labour Day Classic every year and Winnipeg plays in that game every year. Since returning to the West division, Winnipeg has played in Regina twice in a regular season on two occasions, in 2015 and 2017, and Saskatchewan has worn their regular uniforms.

They should love wearing them against every team. Far and away their best look since they dropped the wrap around logo on the helmet
