  1. Argos have removed the stripe from their helmet. I love stripes, but this is pretty sharp looking. Dejon™ on Twitter: "Boy I can’t wait to put that #18 on https://t.co/48QUTDCPdh" / Twitter
  2. It's official -- the boat (modified to remove the old "football orange" football) is back, permanently. The shield remains as a secondary. Great news, IMO. https://www.argonauts.ca/2020/11/16/boat-back-argos-unveil-new-primary-logo/
  3. This guy has come up with IMO an extremely nice redesign for Argos: https://pifflespodcast.com/blog/re-imagining-the-cfl-toronto-argonauts
  4. Football uniforms must include lower white socks, and upper socks that are different colour or design than the pants and the lower socks. Football uniforms may have white pants AND white jerseys, but when that happens there must be non-white upper socks. Except for white/white combo as above, football uniforms must never have same colour pants and jerseys. Football players are forbidden to show bare skin between upper socks and pants, and between lower socks and shoes.
  5. Agreed. While I'm disappointed with lack of stripes or logo, it is still a sharp look but would be 100 times better with contrasting pants/jerseys, and especially with Cambridge (light) Blue upper socks.
  6. Actually, looking at the picture that has been posted showing their home uni, it seems possible they have gone away from the official pantone for Cambridge Blue (which is rather greenish) and more towards a "baby blue" tone. Which would be fine with me -- they've deviated from the actual Cambridge Blue for much of the past four to five decades, I think.
  7. It's actually (supposed to be) Cambridge Blue -- their official colours are Oxford Blue and Cambridge Blue. Regardless of the actual pantone, the teaser makes the jerseys look amazing, especially the white jersey which has also been teased out. I've been waiting for them to bring back that look since 1981, when they got rid of Cambridge numbers on the road uni. My avatar shows what IMO was the greatest look Argos have ever had.
  8. Calgary should get rid of black, period. The silver they used to have was 100 times better, and there is another team that not only uses red and black but calls itself after the colours. Hamilton should indeed go back to yellow helmets (and pants) but I doubt it will happen. The Argos need to eliminate the non-contrasting look (blue pants/blue jerseys, white pants/white jerseys) and start using Cambridge (light) blue upper socks with the Oxford (dark) blue pants.
  9. That video is very impressive and has set the standard for what all the other CFL teams should do when they get their new unis in 2020.
  10. Actually, the Alouettes had wings on their helmets through parts of the 1950s and '60s, as shown here. (It says up to 1949 but that's an error -- it should read 1969.) https://en.montrealalouettes.com/all-time-uniforms/ Here's a better rendition: http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/6096/Montreal_Alouettes/1960/Helmet
  11. Except the Argos did not change combos very often in 2018. I tracked them game by game the past two seasons. They used 10 separate combinations in 2017, including many with contrast and even some with Cambridge blue upper socks. This past year they went white/white and blue/blue for the vast majority of the games. Here is what they did in 2017 (B=Oxford Blue, C=Cambridge Blue, W=White, Comb=how many times they used that combo): Helmet Jersey Pants Socks Comb B B B O 4 W W W W 4 B W B O 3 W B B W 2 W B W O 2 W B W W 2 W W W C 2 B W B W 1 W B W C 1 W W B O 1 Six of the 10 combos, total of 10 out of 22 games (including preseason), had contrasting pants and jerseys.
  12. At least they abandoned the prototype's dark red numbers on dark blue jersey. Overall, the look is far superior to what they've had for the past decade or so, and thankfully the cartoon bird is now history. Unfortunately, this new look would be 100 times better had they just swapped monochrome for jersey/pants contrast. When will that execrable trend come to an end?
  13. Except that both Hamilton and Toronto insist on wearing unitard looks, particularly in the "home" version, far more often than not. Both teams have all the components to have superb unis, but they rarely put them together in the right way. Toronto used no fewer than 10 different combos in 22 games (preseason included) in 2017, only seven of which were same colour top-to-bottom. But this year, all-white or all-blue became the default, and there were only a couple of variations.
  14. There are rumours circulating among some Argo fans that the new owners, MLSE, are seriously considering a return to the boat logo (or perhaps some modern variation of it). It has been used on secondary merch for past couple of seasons. MLSE returned the Leafs to a variation of their "classic" 1960s logo so it seems possible they would go classic with the Argos as well. I've long advocated for the return of the boat but I've come to love the current look of the unis although I wish they would avoid using same colour for pants and upper socks (they sometimes do, sometimes don't). So either way, I'll probably be happy.
