Roughriders unveil throwback unis


reppact

Recommended Posts

Oh yeah I saw that game on CBC.. and I do like the Green Riders jersey and helmet look with that old logo... I think that ought to be the main one for the Roughriders for next year... however, as a Bombers fan I wanted Winnipeg to beat Saskatchewan today but dang close game and exciting one.... cant wait for the rematch (Banjo Bowl game Sept 9th!) I bet Winnipeg will wear their throwback jerseys in that Banjo Bowl game like they did last year...

Interesting that they apparently ditched the "S" sleeve logo at the last second and shifted the numbers down off the shoulders.

Also, black facemasks?

I happen to like that logo... but it can use a nice update. It would be nice if Saskatchewan makes it to the Grey Cup. They have some of the best fans in the CFL.

I had heard about the uniforms, but was stunned that they had retro looking helmets. The Shade of green looked darker as well. As far as if those will be permanent changes, it wouldn't surprise me. They said something on the broadcast that the Riders Sold close to $200,000 worth of merchandise ( looks like they did retro caps, shirts and other items ) during the weekend, and if you check the link to the Rider Store on their website, its SHUT DOWN because they can't process any orders. Seeing as how in other sports if an Alt does really well ( NHL mostly) it becomes the standard Uni, it wouldn't surprise me if they made the switch full time. I PERSONALLY loved the plain old Green and White look, and hope it stays!
