  1. So those teasers were for full-time jerseys, not just retro ones. They seem to heavily emphasize red, so hopefully that means a reduction of black. Assuming the 2021 re-design is to accommodate new New Era templates, I would imagine Calgary's design is simplistic to fit the current templates. I know the Argos changed uniforms in 2019, but man I hope they undo those changes for 2021. I got season tickets for this year (we'll see how much of a 2020 season there is) and it would be nice to know there's something better upcoming for them. Otherwise, most of the other teams have solid looks now. Saskatchewan could shift away from monochrome and Ottawa could have more personality to them (plaid accents?). And a return to TV numbers would be nice for some teams. Edmonton's shoulders are so bare..
  2. I wonder if the silver/grey in the 75 logo is a reference to the diamond anniversary or something uniform related. Either way, I'm hoping they wear some retro uniforms. The three vertical lines on the bottom remind me of the helmets and jerseys they used to wear in the 1940s.
  3. Charlotte Town FC might win over some fans from a certain Canadian capital: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlottetown
  4. If this hasn't been mentioned yet, here it is: Saints Color Rush vs Atlanta black jerseys. Match up of the week, no?
  5. It's such an opportunity missed for the Bears not to wear their white throwbacks vs the Lions in their throwbacks for the Thanksgiving game.
  6. The Roughriders just released the 108th Grey Cup logo. I like that it includes a lot more green as opposed to the very standard grey logo we've seen since 2016. It bodes well for Hamilton in 2021.
  7. I actually like that the Tiger-Cats only have black and gold on their home uniforms (the team removed the white outlines on the numbers this year). They can save the white shoulder caps for retro jerseys, I guess. A saving grace for this year's uniform match up is that both teams are wearing the same uniform they have worn throughout these playoffs (WPG in two West games and HAM in the East Final). Otherwise, it would have been nice to see black jerseys over gold pants.
  8. It's almost like a CFL version of "Colour Rush" and I actually like it a lot. I hope they wear this combo again next year where maybe we could be treated to a colour vs colour game. These uniforms provide great contrast. Edmonton or maybe Hamilton would be a good CvC game.
  9. The Lions wore their New Era orange jerseys with black pants for the first time last night. It was a good opponent to wear them against since black pants clash better with Calgary's red pants. It was a nice change and I'm glad to finally see it, but the all orange look has grown on me a bit.
  10. That's probably a good bet. They wore them last year when they hosted a playoff game and again in 2013 (the other most recent home playoff game). Calgary will likely wear the black outlaw uniforms and Hamilton has announced theirs as a "blackout" game, indicating black jerseys and pants.
  11. They've been wearing them for one additional game late in the regular season for the past few years. https://www.cfl.ca/games/2538/saskatchewan-roughriders-vs-calgary-stampeders/ October 20, 2018 https://www.cfl.ca/games/2440/saskatchewan-roughriders-vs-calgary-stampeders/ October 20, 2017 (not a typo, that's actually the date) https://www.cfl.ca/games/2346/toronto-argonauts-vs-calgary-stampeders/ October 21,2016 Wow, they probably should have worn these uniforms against Winnipeg next week instead (October 19). It seems to fit the date mould more.
  12. The Lions have announced that they'll wear their white jerseys at home for next week's game against the Roughriders. As of today's date, no team has worn their white jersey at home during the regular season this year. I kind of wish more teams would, like the NFL does, just to make the uniforms less predictable. https://www.bclions.com/nexthomegame
  13. I wouldn't mind if the league went retro every September. With throwbacks, especially if teams can coordinate and wear them against each other, it would make for a great reflection on the history of the league. However, I hope teams don't get trapped in nostalgia and lose their identity. I have no idea what identity the Argos are going for after redoing their uniforms this season and then sticking with retro logos for the back half of the season. It's hard to build brand identity when it keeps changing.
  14. Maybe this shouldn't go in the 2019 thread, but the Montreal Alouettes are running a promotion for fans to inspire the design of the 2021 alternate jersey. https://en.montrealalouettes.com/2019/09/25/jersey2021-contest/ Key restrictions are: "Uniforms can’t be predominantly blue or white. It must be different from our existing uniforms The jersey needs to match with our blue and white pants. The uniform must match with our current helmet." So it has to be red. Creative freedom! But this is pretty cool and a neat way to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Alouettes.
  15. I think it would okay to at least have the option with the white jersey. The team could make the jersey devoid of gold (similar to the 49ers) and make it just white and blue, but be able to wear it with white pants and white horns on the helmet or gold pants.and gold horns on the helmet.
