  1. Montreal Alouettes unveil their really boring 75th anniversary logo that looks more like they are honouring a dead player: The team is also supposed to have a new alternate uniform this season to mark the anniversary, I think the logo colours are giving a hint at what we can expect https://en.montrealalouettes.com/2021/01/16/happy-75th-anniversary/
  2. Think it's time to start a new thread for the 2021 season (assuming we have one this year). Anyway, here's one some folks might have missed but the Alouettes just made a FB post announcing it - the wordmark version of the new logo is now flipped, so it's Alouettes on top, then Montreal. New logo already on their website too - and has been on their social media for the last little while without anyone really noticing the change. https://www.facebook.com/mtlalouettes/photos/a.437809341378/10158304526886379 Older version for comparison:

  4. Did we miss this one? Blainville-Boisbriand has a new 10 year anniversary logo and special edition third jersey with an alt logo they've used sometimes in the past. Anniversary logo on... the... socks? What a mess.
  5. Anyone else thinking they might announce some contest to vote on finalist names? Also odd that the article states they are looking at new name AND new logo for the spring, but later on say the team would like to stick with the classic EE. So can we assume we'll see some variant of the current EE? Seems like expensive work for nothing, when 99% of CFL fans are fine with the current logo, any big change there is opening the door to some disaster. Y'know... like...
  6. This is what I was kind of hoping for with Ottawa, maybe this would have been a little more unique than what they went with...
  7. Some missing CFL logos. 1995 - Calgary Stampeders 50th anniversary: Edmonton Eskimos original logo 1954-1969: Hamilton Tiger-Cats 50th Anniversary: Hamilton Tiger-Cats 125th Anniversary: Hamilton Tiger-Cats 150th Anniversary: Saskatchewan Roughriders 100th Anniversary: Toronto Argonauts 130th Anniversary: Winnipeg Blue Bombers 80th Anniversary:
  8. I'm actually surprised at how nice the wild wing jersey is in white. It's just such a bad jersey, but so bad its good. I can't help kind of love it.
  9. Top 5: Minnesota Montreal Chicago NY Rangers San Jose (*Calgary gets honourable mention) Bottom 5: Dallas Detroit Vegas Vancouver Winnipeg
  10. To be fair though, who doesn't love whoopie pies? If Atlantic Canada ever gets another chance at a franchise, I'm voting for "Atlantic Whoopie Pies"
  11. Argonauts bring boat back "for good" they say... https://www.argonauts.ca/2020/11/16/boat-back-argos-unveil-new-primary-logo/
  12. I wonder if Ottawa will surprise and go with the pre-launch logo for the front of the jersey? Maybe just switch the font colour for legibility?
  13. Oh my goodness that is atrocious.
  14. Very cool Senators jersey concept on Reddit from user DastardlyRidleylash, it's the Sens jersey I never knew I wanted. Hope the final product is not too far from this:
  15. Today I learned: I think I'm the only person here who actually likes those Avs jerseys.... please don't hurt me.
  16. This is true and it comes up every time a team has an anniversary... most teams are recognizing the anniversary in years, not in seasons, so it doesn't really change. Take Columbus and Minnesota next season - their logos just say "20" with 2000-2020. Yes, they only played 19 seasons in that time, but it remains to be their 20th anniversary as franchises. That seems to be the league standard for all anniversaries post-lockout.
  17. The Ottawa rebrand scores a solid 8/10 for me - I'm ecstatic that the old logo is back, even if a modernized version (or that reworked alternate everyone loves) would have likely been a better choice, I'll take it. As a lifelong Sens fan, the 2D logo was always the Senators for me. the 3D one was cool, I didn't hate it, but it just felt like the team was wearing an alt logo full-time. It never felt right, and those jerseys were... not the greatest. Is the new stuff perfect? No. But it's a great starting point. The season after next is the team's 30th anniversary, so I'm sure we'll see a cool (red) third jersey with the "O" come back, and hopefully that shoulder S will be replaced by the heritage O permanently. Then they can just add the black sleeves to the away jerseys and there you go... leave well enough alone after that. For fans who may not be 100% pleased with the rebrand, remember... with this organization, they could have gone with something ridiculous like the shoulder S as their new primary. It's stupid decisions like that you can come to expect from the Sens, given the low bar they have set. So yeah, let us fans celebrate the rebrand for the sole reason that it is not a disaster.
  18. A parking garage? Nice, what's in the bag, new uniforms or crystal meth?
  19. That's ... kind of... boring. I'm not a big fan of this new trend of "using an outline of the state for an anniversary logo." It's cool once or twice, but when everyone and their dog/coyote does it, it starts getting overused. Especially where Arizona did that already with the 20th anniversary one. Also would have been cool to see a full kachina rebrand but... oh well, next year it is, I guess. It's totally coming, that much is pretty well guaranteed at this point.
  20. Yeah, it was actually revealed back in August but flew under a lot of people's radar and had not been seen since. t was part of a mail-out for season ticket holders...
  21. Hurray - though they should drop the black C as their third jersey, it's so out of place now and never made any sense to begin with. The C is on fire, fire isn't black. This shouldn't be that difficult.
  22. Looks good. At first I thought it was weird that they went with "Since 2000" instead of the usual numbers format "2000-2020"... but I guess that would have made for a few too many twos and zeroes, wouldn't it?
  23. That's a real shame about the black sleeves... was really hoping this chinese knockoff site from a few months ago had been accurate. I'm thinking this is a way better product than what we're going to see tomorrow: EDIT: Also weird that the original report in The Athletic said the away jersey had the black forearms... not sure who to believe anymore. The home jersey mockup is black with two red bands on the arms, encasing the numbers, and a single red stripe around the bottom. The away jersey is white with red bands on the arms and black forearms. It has a red stripe atop a black stripe running around its bottom edge. Hailey Salvian, The Athletic (July 13, 2020)
  24. Yeah, The away jerseys are a bit of a downgrade... I don't hate it, but again, just a pain when you get so close to a perfect set only to stumble short. Maybe I'll change my mind seeing them in action. The black is still beautiful and seeing the old logo back still makes me have sparkly heart-shaped eyes.
