This looks like a safe bet to be their font...

That doesn't bode well for the tasteful lumberjack motif I was hoping for.

Isn't that the old Perds number set? Blergh.

Yes, yes it is. Most recently seen on the Las Vegas Locos of the UFL.

I actually love the number font. Goes perfectly with the logo

Wouldn't be the first time...the Tiger-Cats use(d?) the mid-90s Patriots number style.

The non-matching "R"s bug me to no end.

I'm surprised this wasn't posted already. The first sneak peek (for what it's worth)...

Here are a few more teasers:

How many more years does reebok have the contract for? Considering they're effectively getting out of the endorsement business to position themselves primarily in the fitness arena, I'd have to think that licensing is next. Maybe it's a different strategy up North.

So that looks like Black with White Striping? I was expecting Red, but then again we don't know what the main colour of the jersey will be.

I'll update this post once better images come in, but for anyone not following the liveblogging of the event, here's some shots:

These white ones seem crazily colorless to me. What happened to the RED in REDBLACKS?

Nice, I had just gotten sick of refreshing their Facebook page, 30 minutes after the start of the event.

Not bad I suppose. I expected worst to be honest.

Home looks like a glorified practice jersey... And the away set... for redblacks there is not much of either

Given the team name and their insistence people spell it using all caps? Yeah, it needs more red. That being said, I was expecting worse. I'd ditch the white helmets (when I think Ottawa football I think black helmets), work more red into the striping, and ditch the dated Falcons/Broncos-esque pants stripes.

I get not wanting to stamp on Calgary's toes, but a little more red would be nice. The monochrome is bland, and the all-black (ALLBLACK?) pairing is atrocious (hello, BC). The white helmet looks cheap, and why the hell are CFL teams so resistant to use helmet stripes? Toronto, Saskatchewan, BC, Hamilton (though I think they brought them back this year), Calgary, and now Ottawa. It looks so rec-league.

Overall? C+. Not good, not awful. I was expecting a lot worse.

Those are so boring that they look minor-league.

Also, can we PLEASE be done with those Minnesota Vikings pant stripes, CFL?
