    Baltimore needs to make the purple pants permanent on the road if they haven't done so yet.

     

    Purple pants with black socks way better than the black yoga pants with black socks on the road.

    If I had to guess, that looks like it might actually be Charlottetown's new home jersey as the sleeve and waist striping matches that of the white jerseys (just different order of colors) that I've seen in person two weeks ago when they played the Eagles here.

     

    Yeah, noticed since the posting they have continued to wear the black.  Just find it strange because I believe it was just last year that Charlottetown had introduced new uniforms and the gold jersey was the new primary dark.

    The contrasting name plate started back in the 70's.  There's a couple of different explanations I have found online.  One is that for the playoffs, both teams needed to wear them for TV.  The other is that NBC were doing a game of the week and asked both teams have name plates.  I don't know if both reasons are one and the same.  Since the Flyers didn't have orange name plates, they stuck the white ones on their road jerseys.  This picture is from the 73-74 season.  So, there is some history behind the contrasting name plate for the Flyers.  Any other team that is does it, does it just for the gimmick.

    Definitely agree with you about the orange jerseys.  If the Flyers want to do this as a nod to tradition, they should wear the white nameplates with black letters on both the orange and the white jerseys.

     

    It is gimmicky with the Flyers current white jersey, which features the black nameplates with white letters.

    We have Players in the Wrong Uniforms, but what about Players in the Wrong Equipment? Some players are so synonymous with a certain type of equipment, that switching just seems wrong. Case-in-point, Arturs Irbe

    Rest of the MLS schedule is out and FC Cincinnati gets another date with Columbus and Atlanta, yet no Nashville this season. Puzzling.

     

    All remaining Vancouver Whitecaps home games in Portland.  I guess for this year they are now the Vancouver, WA Whitecaps.

    A few years ago I asked the Official CFL Twitter which team I should pick as my favorite. I was surprised that not only did the CFL respond, but all 9 teams as well. I eventually chose BC and even bought a shirt. However, I’m slowly starting to realize the best identity in the league is Winnipeg. They currently have the only uniforms that don’t look like crap. Might have to buy a new shirt.

     

    No, you don't want to do that.  We may see many teams with uniform redesigns for 2021 now that New Era has their foot in the door.

     

    The Roughriders have really nice alternate uniforms that are throwbacks.  Not to late to be a Riders fan.  If you ever end up in Regina, SK and see a game there live, the atmosphere is second to none in the league.  It means something there.   It is clear that your best choice is to cheer for the Riders.

    Plus the Riders used to have really awesome uniforms with wraparound helmet logo back in the day.

    Nah, I've never liked the Canes' normal logo. Put the double-flag on the front as the team's primary, instead, and we'd have a winner.

     

    The double-flag Canes logo is an example of a good-looking secondary logo and shoulder patch.  To me, it does not work well as a primary crest on the jersey.  Maybe it is the symmetry of how it looks on the front of the jersey, but just don't like it as a primary crest.

    Back when the Stars looked mean. This is a far better look than what they use now IMO

     

    Not a bad look, but it would have looked better if they kept the kelly green trim like they did with the original version of this uniform.  They did the right thing by widening the stripes but the green was a bit too dark as a trim colour on the black uniforms.

     

    I do prefer today's uniform because we finally have a team back in the NHL what wears a kelly green jersey as their primary look.  A downside with it is it looks like a green version of a Chicago Blackhawks uniforms.  Could use a minor redesign and add some silver trim in the uniform to go with the black trim.

    That Dallas one is kind of funny because they just yoinked the All-Star jerseys and then put the star pattern on the back.

     

    I think those are still my favourite Stars jerseys, but I never liked how the socks didn't have any black on them/match the jersey striping pattern.

     

    The socks did match better and had black when the jersey was strictly their alternate.  When it became the regular dark jersey, the socks changed.

    The NHL also almost had the Hampton Roads Rhinos in the 90s. They had a logo made, not sure about a jersey though

     

    Rhinos did have a logo and it would have been the worst in the NHL.  Would have been a purple and teal team.

    Also an SFU alumn. Promise most people at the school were unaware of the team's name. We're in last in nearly every men's sport and our women's teams are not exactly winning championships either 

     

    I know the school loves having the NCAA designation, but I would be way more interested in following what the football team was doing if they went back to playing Canadian ball in Canada West.  Been to SFU football games and would so much rather go to UBC ones because of who the opponents would be.  

     

    Would have more of a vested interest if SFU was playing UBC, Saskatchewan, or Manitoba for example rather  than Azusa Pacific and Humboldt State.

    Oilers had it PERFECT here

    And then decided to screw it up. Adding a copper alt would also have been really nice. That, or (less good but still really good) would be switching to the copper set and having the royal/orange be the third.

     

    You are totally right.  What really boggles my mind is they have now abandoned this uniform not once, but now 2 times.  When you see fans wearing this blue jersey side by side with another wearing the current orange jersey, you question why they would ditch this classic blue jersey.


  13. Reasons to love Elks as a name:

     

    -Elks name has some history attached to it.  The Edmonton Elks played in the 1922 Grey Cup.

     

    -Can keep the EE logo.

     

    -Plenty of Elk in Alberta.  Fits the region.

     

    -Team name not commonly used.  Keeping with feature of how CFL teams have quirky names.

     

    -The name feels just so Canadian it fits.

     

    -Imagine the 3rd uniform helmet with antlers on it!  That could be damn awesome.  Better than the gigantic EE they have on the helmet now when they wear their thirds.

     

    ---------------------------

     

    When I hear Express as an option, I cringe.  It reminds me of a couple of teams in the USFL and AAF.  A fill in the blank team name for the next start up football league.

    Blue and green for 10 years!  Then Red, yellow, and orange for five!  Then navy and crimson for a few! :)

     

    True.  Us Canuck fans have the luxury of different fashion options when sporting Canucks gear.  Has been blue and green the last 13 years and I think (hope) it will remain that way.  Can wear different colours when wearing alternate throwbacks.    I think the Canucks want to keep a consistent look now instead of being the poster child for a team that radically changes uniforms like in the past.


  15. This is a difficult situation.  I have always loved my hometown teams and remain loyal. 

     

    Though I like some teams more than others I cannot get on board with being a huge fan for teams elsewhere.  Though I live in Vancouver now, I lived basically the other half of my life to this point in Regina.  So when it comes to CFL, junior hockey, university sports - I still am a loyal fan of the teams from Regina.  That will never change.  

     

    However, for sports that we did not have back there that have teams in Vancouver, I have grown into a big fan of my new hometown teams (except not the Grizzlies anymore because it does not even feel like the same team).  So love teams in my city such as the Whitecaps and Canadians but could never be a BC Lions or Vancouver Giants fan.  It seems confusing but feels right to me.

     

    So you know what my answer is Johnny.  You must stay a Canucks fan!  Blue and green for life! :)

     

    Do what feels right, see how it goes.  You will probably really like the Kraken as time continues.  A team destined to become a huge rival for the Canucks.

    Flames uploaded there profile picture be this, does this mean retro jersey for playoffs?

     

    Probably.  Would not be the first time for the playoffs right?  I am hoping that it is a permanent profile picture change rather than just for playoffs.  Like they should go back to the retro reds and whites as the permanent jerseys for 2020-21.
