Damn you, Mac. I was just about to post this. Here's a photo from the Stamps' Twitter account ...

Blech. It's not an egregious case of BFBS, because they've always had black trim and worn a black alternate uniform for years, but this has taken it too far.

Any word on the CFL retros this year?

A quick search revealed their colors are black and red

Not sure how this is BFBS

Seriously, do you do a "BFBS" search everytime you log in?

The helmet, I think, looks really high school. :/

k, I gotta ask....what does BFBS stand for?

black for black's sake.

I'm not a fan of black helmets that use white facemasks. Don't ask me why, but I just don't like it. Navy blue-white facemask = OK, but not black with a white facemask. The helmet would've looked better with a black facemask.

I have to agree with you. In my mind, BFBS would be if the Argonauts (dark blue, carolina-ish blue, and white) or Eskimos (green and gold), for example introduced a black helmet.

Because the Stamps have never worn a black helmet in their history, that's why. I don't care if black is a team color, what the Stamps are doing is textbook BFBS.

Ugh, I don't like this at all. I mostly agree that while it's not a bad helmet, it doesn't work for the Stampeders. And while calling it BFBS isn't exactly accurate here, as Calgary's colors are Red and Black, they're historically and known by the casual football fan as the CFL's "Red Team." It looks like the CFL isn't immune to stupid uniform decisions either...

Live in the city and watch the news and this completely went under my nose. (albeit I'm a Bomber fan)

They should have included a red outline around the horse.

Wouldn't have helped it a single bit... hate this move and im not even a CFL fan
