With two teams using jerseys from last year, I imagine Reebok will have new 3rd jerseys for next year.

Last time the league had a jersey make over Montreal and Saskatchewan both kept their 3rd jerseys from their old sets.

I still can't believe someone thought that was a good idea. Same goes for Montréal's BFBS.

Why can't the Riders just use those full time. So SIMPLE! Ugh

Agreed. I was hoping they'd go with the classic jerseys full time with the change this year.

As was I. The retros are one of my favorite sets in all of football.

While I'm thinking of it, Winnipeg should dig up thier old retros as well because this:

is downright beautiful and needs to be seen every season.

Each team had final say with their jerseys. BC and Montreal proved that by staying (mostly) the same. Blame Saskatchewan management.

I really thought Sask would switch to the retro's, they have ONLY worn the white and green retro's in their recent playoff history. I am even going to take a shot in the dark, and say they wear white retro's next week with that leaked white retro helmet.

Today we saw one of the worst uni matchups in history (Edm vs. Cgy) and one of the best (Tor vs. Ham). :shocked:

Two great games though!

Great games, yes.

I never like the Stamps RBK alts--but at least they wore red pants and not black--I'll give them some credit for that.

I agree for the most part (those Bombers unis were great) but as I've already complained, the busted and missing stripes on the Riders look like crap. However I forgot to mention that the pants stripes bother me too as there should be no black in them. They are just the old regular pants the Riders used (up to last year) after they dropped the silver pants. They also need nice big rounded numbers on the back of the helmets like the originals had...

So, they just come across to me as a big inaccurate mish-mash. With all their flaws I don't see them as any great improvement on the current regular Rider uniforms. It's such a shame these days that "kinda close" in a retro is often considered good enough.

Also: Thanks a lot whoever mentioned the mismatched golds in the Winnipeg uniform! Now that's all I see when I look at them! lol

The simple removal of those god awful side panels would make the jersey a number of times better than they are now.

Wacky, over-the-top styles were cool back in 2001 for the XFL. The Eskimos deserve better.

idk if this was discussed earlier but is there any reasoning as to why the CFL jerseys use the Reebok wordmark and not the Reebok logo like the NFL jerseys?

Is that what they are switching to such that if the NFL kept Reebok they would have to have used the wordmark too?

Yes. The Reebok wordmark IS the new Reebok logo.

If you take a look back at the actual XFL uniform designs, you might be surprised at how straightforward and clean most of them were.

Except for Memphis, which just... eeeeesh.

Yeah the panels are crap, but I wonder if that jersey as is would look any better with gold helmet/pants which is what they should be in, any ways.
