Well guys, I have decided to do an alternate universe on the CFL. Well, you know how from 1993-1995 when the CFL had American teams? Well, in this alternate universe, we keep the American teams and see what happens. CFL in Atlantic Canada? Miami Manatees? Virginia Pirates? HARTFORD? All those questions will be answered in this AU. We will start with the 1996 season. Some helmet pictures credit to MG at mghelmets.com and helmet template credit to Thornbird.
NIKE REVEALS CANADIAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE UNIFORMS FOR THE 2015 SEASON June 23, 2015 – The Canadian Football League boasts a rich, tradition-laden history with roots over 100 years old, when the inaugural Grey Cup was presented in 1909. However, the CFL is also a forward-thinking league, as shown by its many unique and innovative rules and fast-paced style of play. With this dichotomy in mind, Nike has looked deep into the history and tradition of each team and drawn inspiration from both past and present. As the 2015 CFL season kicks off, Nike is unveiling each team’s new Mach Speed uniforms. The Mach Speed football uniform features an all-new chassis including the latest in lightweight fabric innovation built for maximum speed, ventilation and comfort. The uniform includes three distinct woven mesh fabrics for optimal thermoregulation. Each panel on the jersey and pants matches specifically to the pads underneath in order to promote maximum airflow. In addition to primary home and away uniforms, each team will also have two “Pride” uniforms to be worn during CFL Heritage Month in October. These Pride uniforms take inspiration from each franchise’s history and identity but with a modern twist, creating a unique, 21st century look for each team. BC Lions Calgary Stampeders Edmonton Eskimos Hamilton Tiger-Cats Montreal Alouettes Ottawa RedBlacks Saskatchewan Roughriders Toronto Argonauts Winnipeg Blue Bombers Nike is the official sideline and on-field provider for the Canadian Football League. Fans will be able to purchase jerseys, official sideline gear and other apparel at Nike.com, as well as at Nike Stores and other key Nike retailers.* * Not actually, as this is a concept. Please don’t go to Nike demanding CFL gear.
Well it might seem a tad early but to start one, but it's been a unusually busy off-season, quarterbacks are changing teams, Ottawa is starting play this season, two new stadiums, the Argonauts might join the MLSE fold, the season schedule is coming out tomorrow, free agency is heating up.... ...oh and Arland Bruce said something stupid about Michael Sam and has probably played his last down of Canadian Football....
The days getting longer and the weather getting warmer can only mean one thing: CFL season is almost here! The 2013 CFL schedule was recently announced and can be seen here. Notable in this season's schedule is the belated debut of the new Investors Group Field in Winnipeg, MB, the temporary relocation of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to Guelph, ON while their home stadium is demolished and rebuilt, and the re-appearance of the special Touchdown Atlantic Game in Moncton, NB. The 101st Grey Cup will take place on Sunday, November 24 at Mosaic Stadium in Regina, SK. One interesting piece of off-season news for the league is the recent completion of a $200 million television deal with Bell Media. The deal will see TSN and RDS continue to be the exclusive television home of the CFL in Canada (in English and in French, respectively) from the 2014 through 2018 seasons. This figure is being reported as more than double the value of the CFL's previous deal with Bell Media. (More here.)
