CFL 2012

Recommended Posts

Why are so many CFL teams eschewing the helmet stripe? It makes the uniforms look half baked... the Sask/Ham photo looks like a NCAA Div III game someplace where it never occurred to the equipment managers that stripes might be an appropriate touch.

Could be worn with the Riders white throwbacks.

I'm wondering if the Riders will have both green and white throwback jerseys this year.

With the team using white helmets (last night and above), will their fans be wearing a lighter shade of melon on their heads?

Another pic from last night's game. The black mono has to go.

...same with the Argos blue mono. The white/blue combo vs. the Esks tonight looks great.

I will admit to looking forward to seeing the Ti-Cats black/gold uni...

That's some really good-looking three-down football right there.

Good question...

Maybe there's a Rider fan that knows the answer...

(On another forum I read a comment from someone who thought it was the Stamps fans that wore the melons. I've only ever seen or heard that from Rider fans.)

I was okay with the Stamps black pants at first, but after watching highlights of their first game, I know they need white pants. It just doesn't look right.

This league jersey change is just so random. Some teams have a massive upgrade(Tor/Ham), couple pretty much stayed the same(BC and MTL), and the biggest downgrade is league history perhaps, and their jerseys were not even that great prior (Sask). Also a big "MEH" goes to Calgary and Edmonton.

I respectfully disagree. I was at the game last night, and I think the black pants look great with the red jersey. Need red pants for the road though.

They do look better with the new jersey than the previous jersey--but it just ain't right for a team also known as the Red & White...

I agree with everyone else, the mono uniforms (like all white for Saskatchewan and all blue for Toronto) just don't look right. At least some of the teams, like BC and Montreal, have it figured out (light pants with dark jersey, dark pants with light jersey).

Ugh, I can tell on my crappy SD TV that Winnipeg's helmets don't match...How hard can it really be to get them to match?!

They don't match how? They look the same to me.

I'm guessing he's referring to the shade of gold on the helmet, versus the one on the uniform. It really does look like the Bombers forgot to order new helmets for the new unis, so hey, since we've got these retros laying around, why not, close enough.

CAVILLO's name was not even sewn correctly in the center of his jersey.

Like I anticipated, the ALOUETTES white letters on front looks ugly as soon the jersey is not totally straight.

Why in the hell they did not bring back these classics

Amateur work by Reebok. Horrible.
