Montreal's helmet from last night

These would be fine if they didn't clash with the rest of the uniform.

Watched a bit of Lions-Als last night and holy cow BC is one of the worst-dressed teams in North American sports. 

 

What exactly is wrong with them except for the tramp stamp logo.  While I prefer the actual team logo on the helmet, they are passable.  I'm not as excited about their road jerseys though.

 

As far as the Als are concern, I know that it's probably going to be an unpopular opinion, but I don't like the helmets they wore and not because they clash with the jerseys.  

 

Hamilton should always be wearing yellow pants with a single thick black stripe.  No white or black and certainly no numbers on them.  It looked too out of place.

I don't think they clash with the rest of the uniform. I think they fit in pretty well

I think if the helmet became permanent, the only change I'd make is the wings(?) match the pants striping. Just add a white outline and blue line and call it a day.

The design is gross, made worse by the adidas template, and the lack of white makes them seem dark and dreary. Lacks contrast. The helmet logo is derivative. And I’m not sure what the pants “stripe” is trying to do.

I actually like that there is no white.  Gives a dark and menacing look, which I guess is what they were after.  Agree with the helmet, but I think they are far from one of the worst dressed, even with the Adidas template.  Could have been worse.

I absolutely loved these. I think Montreal has one of the most boring looks, and these gave them a much more aesthetically pleasing look.

Montreal is certainly due for a change. The current campaign looks like a sort of test. I would absolutely love they go the delta logo way (1974) or event the 1949 wings like this, tbu hey, we'll see.

NVM -- just noticed the other thread on this.

 

It was just announced that Adidas will NOT be the CFL's uni supplier in 2019. Lots of speculation about a return to Nike, or maybe Under Armour, but whatever company does it I assume we will see another across-the-board redesign.

Nike wasn't a supplier for the CFL. Starter, Puma and then Reebok did provide uniforms though. I think everyone feels it's between Nike and Under Armour if it's even a two horse race.

Anyone know if the Alouettes are celebrating an anniversary or something this year?  Why exactly did they wear those helmets?  And this logo is the one the CFL website is using for them, as well as Montreal's own team site.

I think they're celebrating their team history and this looks like it could be a place holder for a new logo. That's my best guess.

I think the pant stripe would need to be a standard stripe rather than the current striping. If the swapped the yoke and shoulder stripe colors it would look even better.

I'd also change the red on the jersey to be a true sleeve cap, like the NY Jets, rather than sleeve/armpit caps. It looks much cleaner.

I think the armpit thing depends on how each player wants their jersey cut. Those sleeve cuffs are pretty big too, look at 46 and 85.

I don't know if it's a particular anniversary that that are celebrating but they are wearing a number of different helmets this year. This picture was posted on page one by @nash61 showing simplified versions of the different logos that correspond to the different helmets. I suspect that they will use those simplified logos to indicate which helmet they are wearing.

I'd actually make the pant stripe either a solid blue OR a solid red. Less is more.

If you keep it in that shape, definitely it would work better.

I think a red/blue pants stripe could do the trick

The Lions could very easily go from a horrible look to a great look by going back in time like Winnipeg. Over81SI.JPG_cf.jpg.898d76bb7d29216d777d394ac9317836.jpg
