CFL 2019

I haven't seen a 2019 CFL thread so I figured I'd make one. If one already exists, please feel free to delete this. So far, New Era is taking over the jerseys from Adidas and the Alouettes are changing everything. Is there any other changes happening this year?

The yearly comment hoping for the Ottawa signature uniform coming back and also a Rough Rider 70's throwback. 

 

Feel the same way about BC. The current uniform is a mess and they’d benefit from a return to the old one.

Hoping the Riders sub in their road white pants with the primary home green jerseys at least some time this upcoming year.  Last year was just mono-green with the primary home uniforms (not counting the 3rd uniform throwbacks).

 

They did sub in the white pants with the primary green jerseys in 2016.  I like this look better than the mono-green.

At minimum.

I'd like to see the riders come out with a retro look, I really dislike this one. 

I also really miss the logo that wrapped around the back of the helmet. That's a good look to draw from too.

The CFL has too proud a history to look like the Arena League’s wacky Canadian cousin. I hope New Era’s changes are positive, but I’m not holding my breath. 

 

The Arena League's wacky Canadian cousin look is hurting the CFL bigtime. BC, Calgary and Ottawa are the worst culprits.

I think that in 2020 Calgary drops black and goes back to red and grey.

 

 

Calgary is never going to drop the black and they don't need to.  They do need to dial it back down a bit to like how it was during the Flutie era.  Just getting rid of the black helmet would be enough.  They can keep the outlaw helmet, though.

The Flutie era Stamp home & away set was nice because red and white were prominent with just black accents.

 

However, there is no denying that red and silver look bold and distinctive. No team in pro football, including the NFL, has that colour scheme. Those colours were "Calgary" like royal blue and old gold are "Winnipeg".

Well, Calgary's colours are ostensibly red and black, with some other colours thrown in.

 

Stamps are red and black

Flames are red, black and yellow

Roughnecks are red, black and silver

Hitmen are black, copper and red

UofC Dinos are red, black and yellow

This new CPL soccer team, Calvary FC, are green, red and black and part of the reason for red and black are the other Calgary teams

 

MRU and the two Jr. A hockey teams are all blue based, with no red or black.

Calgary's major pro teams should have no black and they should look like this:

With those longer existing teams in Calgary, it really has just been the black thrown in with the previously existing colours.  Stampeders, Flames, and U of C.  Calgary Dinos just used to be red and yellow.
