I was going to come and post the same thing, not the avocado and lettuce parts but the ugly part. All of the CFL teams are getting a 3rd jersey like that this year, the Bombers debut theirs this Friday, I just hope ours isn't as bad as theirs.

I wonder how the design process worked - was it a joint process between Reebok and the clubs, or did Reebok just make a bunch (based on what's currently "cool and hip") and the clubs simply picked which one they liked?


EDIT: form the Free Press, here's the new helmet - from an artistic perspective I actually really like the pixel art thing they got going on

I love the fact that the CFL is trying to be innovative. I don't like the Riders jersey per say, mostly due to that neon green, which is off putting next to the other green.


I have high hopes for the other team's 3rds, namely Winnipeg, Calgary, and the Lions, who might have traditionally some of the nicest uniforms in all of sport (which we should give Vancouver, since 99% of Canucks jerseys have been vomit worthy).

They actually remind me a bit of soccer kits, which might not be such a bad direction to go.

Can appreciate them trying the "camo" look, but I have a problem with the coloring on the helmet. Those are Argo colors.

They seem to be copying some of the NCAA teams in their new unis. SSK looked like an ugly version Oregon's jerseys as Oregon's are nicer, but I think they went for a similar look.

While whatever they come out with would look silly as a regular uniform, I have no problem with them coming out with novelty uniforms once in a while. The cadpat camo look might look pretty slick in fact/

Hideous. Anyone else think the CFL is doing the crazy uniform thing to try to appeal to Americans by getting attention on ESPN etc? That's the main reason the NCAA teams do the crazy uniform stuff.

I don't mind the helmet on its own except for it reminds me of a COD gun skin in Argo colours. The other problem is I can't think of a uni design that could actually make it work.

i really like the Redblacks' jersey and helmet. it's really fun.
i also like the Argos' jersey a lot.
the BC Lions have the nicest jerseys in the CFL. all 3 of them. hell, i'd say top 5 in pro football.
the Roughriders? that was a fail.
the Als and Stamps have the worst jerseys in the CFL, so i'm hoping the 3rd jerseys will turn that around.

so far, the bombers' jersey's craptastic. not sure what the goal is. almost like a throwback based on the 1960s jerseys. the only gold may be in the #.
i wouldn't be shocked to see a lightening bolt on the front of the jersey. and maybe also the sleeves

I can handle a terrible jersey for one game. I'll wait and see what the whole outfit looks like before I judge, but I agree that those are Argos colours on the helmet.

BC is the only one who can apparently innovate and still not look like total dogcrap at the same time.

Those all black uniforms are easily the best in the league imo.

Should have just brought back the retro blues, man.

I hope the uniform is much better than that vomit inducing helmet.

I thought nothing could be worse than Sask's. I was wrong.

The Lions new jersey is amazing. Best in the CFL IMO.

I dont mind the Riders one honestly. Could of been a lot better, yes, but it didnt make me laugh like some terrible past jerseys.


The Bombers helmet is interesting. I have low expectations for the jersey though.

Does anyone know what version of "run this town" the bombers use to open every game?

If this is any indication, I think reaction will be mixed at best.

Holy mother of God those unis are BOSS. I love orange and have always really liked BC's style but I would buy one of those and I do not like the Lions.

That has to be one of the best jerseys in all of sport.

Black has been TOO in for TOO long. I am getting tired of black. It is an attention grabbing design though.

The Riders uniforms were just indescribably bad. Couldn't watch the game bad.

That helmet doesn't look bad but it can't be for the Bombers. It is Argos colours!

Looks a little bit like the last Seahawks uniforms, with two tones of Black instead of two tones of Blue, and a bit of orange replacing the bright green. I dig it. You do lose difficulty points for going black IMO though.

As for the Bomber reveal, I am a bit disappointed with that helmet. I saw that jersey pin picture a while back, and it looked more like Jets colours. That helmet pic looks more like it just has like 13 shades of blue, which does seem more Argos than Jets.

Edit - O.K. After seeing the whole uni, it actually looks decent... but totally more Argos than Bombers... or Jets.

Probably about the best we could have hoped for after they revealed that helmet. Compared to Saskatchewan, this is a work of art.

But overall, yeah, pretty bad.

Well, better than what was in that promo picture, anyways. Bomber store link is up. Hmm.

Edit: It's growing on me a little. I like how there is a W on the front. Player's number is less prominent from the front though...won't that hinder officials a bit?

Honestly, I don't mind the hat, shirt and hoodie. But the jersey just doesn't do it for me. Really wish there was some gold in there.
