  1. Here is definitely player in wrong uniform for Gary Carter:
  2. Loved that Kelowna Rockets uniform. Enjoyed that season recently that they wore them during their anniversary. Better than the dark uniforms they wear now.
  3. Really? Dawson was an Expo 1976-86. Raines 1979-90 and 2001. Carter 1974-84 and 1992. This one might be more appropriate for Dawson:
  4. Love these Throwback Thursday posts Johnny! Loved the old orange and brown BC Lions look. Of course was a good change to white helmets with the colour scheme change. Imagine if they would have changed the black helmets to brown? Would not have worked. Put the Lions back in the orange and brown beauties and I would pretty much love it. Same colours as the Cleveland Browns but a much different looking uniform. This was the uniform of a powerhouse Lions team in the mid-1980s, especially the 1985 Grey Cup Champion team. Back in the days when huge crowds would gather at the state-of-the-art dome at BC Place (with the air supported roof) while the Canucks could not draw flies to a game. Crazy how the sporting landscape in Vancouver has changed. This logo was also the inspiration for elite provincial champion teams for curling, like you would see on Team BC jackets at the Brier.
  5. We would have to tell then that end zones were only 20 yards deep now instead of 25 yards. Also, the Grey Cup trophy is a helluva lot larger than it used to be.
  6. I actually like the 1990s royal blue Patriots look better than the current one. A least favourite old school uniform for me? Early 1960s Ottawa Rough Riders. So busy. Square design in pant striping. Shoulder yokes mixed with UCLA stripe design. Also piping between the digits on the shoulders. This uniform worn with lightning bolt design on the helmet, which was strange because it really did not mesh with the team nickname/identity. http://www.packershistory.net/1962PACKERS-YEAR-CFL.html
  7. Yes, if it is going to happen, NFL needs to restrict it to throwbacks so that we can see the iconic vintage uniforms again for some teams that have not been able to give us this. Don't fall to the temptation of having 2 helmets (home and road) that are different colours. Something many CFL teams did in the last decade before that league switched to their own one shell rule. The team's traditional helmet colour was the home helmet but a different colour road helmet was introduced As a CFL fan, I hated it.
  8. We seem to be missing some Canadian TV content. Happened many times on Corner Gas with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Including an episode in 2009 when the Riders were a focal point of the episode. https://play.google.com/store/tv/show?id=qF66fZTPb4Y&cdid=tvseason-6ff0JnBWsuD1hPbKA4TcWg&gdid=tvepisode-1vFOXdr5Y6Y
  9. Was referring to the rumours about the inverted jersey look for the 4th jerseys as indicated by Icethetics. If that is would happen, suggesting it opens the door more for the possibility of a green jersey. I would be all for the Canucks having a green alternate. However, would want an original design rather than an inverted jersey. Besides my earlier suggestion, the Canucks are a team that has a simple answer to what they could wear as the 4th jersey. It is the 4th uniform they wore this year 3 times for 50th anniversary. It could just stay around and become the regular 4th uniform. Think many people would be happy with that.
  10. It is not a bad jersey and some people might be for this. A Canucks fan myself, I will pass: -Looks too much like the New York Rangers. -I would love to have some time seeing the Canucks without script on the upper chest of a jersey. Had to deal with that from 2007 to last year. The upper chest script was an ugly pimple on an otherwise great uniform and they have that fixed now. -Jersey is associated with WHL Canucks and it does not include Johnny Canuck or a logo at all. Think there would be interest in having Johnny involved if we are going to harken back to the WHL days. -The NHL Canucks have more throwback options to choose from than a team normally should. We could have a throwback they have not worn yet from the NHL days. Or possibly, if there decision is to have the inverted jersey look as rumours indicate, we could end up with a green alternate jersey.
  11. Pretty much like the WHL's Medicine Hat Tigers sweater that they have been wearing for decades. Close to at least 40 years. A signature look for the Tigers.
  12. The maker's mark on the pants for the Devils, Maple Leafs and Islanders. It is the Lou Lamoriello effect.
  13. The piece de resistance was the wraparound logo on the helmet. Bold move by the Riders and a team celebrating its 75th anniversary. At that time in the CFL, all 9 teams has the centre stripes on the helmets prior to the Riders making the change. Was not a fan in 1991 when they ditched the silver pants for green pants. Going mono-green in 1991 (unfortunately they are in the mono-green today). However, was a fan of what they did in 1992. Brought the silver pants back for just at home and kept the green pants for the road. I did like that.
