When Nike Takes over the CFL


agentrygraphics

Recommended Posts

Building upon everyone's NFL pro combat, I got inspired to mock up this rough "What if?" idea. So I present the Nike Pro Combat CFL.

Up first is the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

I tried to blend a flat black helmet, jersey, and pants with a rich black side panels on the jersey and pants.

C&C welcome, rest of the league to follow...hopefully this will open up some more concepts from everyone.

Up next is the Edmonton Eskimos. The jersey is inspired by their 1965 throwbacks which they wore in 2009. As seen here:

I'm trying to not go TOO far off the deep end with these concepts. I'm trying to show how you can make Pro Combat look classy.

Up next is Toronto.

Features:

-Boat Logo on Sleeve

- "1873" at base of neck, signifying Toronto being the oldest sports team in North America (via wikipedia)

- Thicker "A" in the shield to stand out.

Nah man, the first two look really good.

Everything looks pretty cool so far. The only suggestions I have would be to try gold or white pants with Hamilton, and to lose the tiger striped socks.

The Hamilton Tiger Cats are North America's oldest pro sports team being founded in 1869 the Toronto Argonauts are the 2nd oldest .

Kind of. The Hamilton Tigers were founded in 1869. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats didn't come into being until 1950 when they merged with the Hamilton Flying Wildcats.

Good suggestion. Yeah...those tiger socks seemed like a good idea at the time. I'll update them tomorrow.

Love the fact that you brought back Jason for the Argos (suck) helmets. Ti-Cats also need a wordmark or logo for above the numbers.

Story B: Red Wings go undefeated and score 100 goals in every game. They also beat a team comprised of Godzilla, the ghost of Abraham Lincoln, 2 Power Rangers and Betty White. Oh, and they played in the middle of Iraq on a military base. In the sand. With no ice. Santa gave them special sand-skates that allowed them to play in shorts and t-shirts in 115 degree weather. Jesus, Zeus and Buddha watched from the sidelines and ate cotton candy.

Love it. I'm actually huge on the gold version of the Eskies jersey. I would love to see them use those colours full-time, as it sits they get way too much heat from being a Packers knock off.

the eskies were wearing green and gold before the packers if what my dad tells me is true

EDIT: According to what a quick web search told me, the eskimos adopted the University of Alberta colours (green and gold) in the 1949 season and the packers didn't introduce green into their colour scheme which was navy and yellow until the following year in 1950
