Oh, thank God.

The RedBlacks?
I'm surprised people still read Stendhal.

I thought they'd be bad.  These aren't that bad, for a team called the RedBlacks I expected something worse.

Well, at least they aren't denying access to media who refused to refer to the team's name in all caps as they originally wanted.


Yes, they wanted REDBLACKS in caps EVERY TIME. REDBLACKS REDBLACKS.

The Redblacks.

I understand that Nova Scotia will be getting a team in the CFL next year.
They'll be calling themselves the Halifax High Yellers.

University of Maryland scoffs at just Red and Black. Throw some Yellow and White in there! Tortoise shell helmets! Half and half helmets - diagnal Yellow and Black checkerboard with a Calvert cross in red and white on the other side!

I'm sorry...but when did Ottawa get a CFL franchise? I casually follow the CFL and even watch games when they're on NFLN or NBCSN, and until right now I've never heard of the "Ottawa RedBlacks".

So, Reebok's answer to having made every team's jerseys look the same, and shiatty, is to make novelty jerseys?

fark the CFL. fark Reebok.

Can't wait for Reebok to lose the NHL contract so I can get decent replica jerseys again, and the CFL contract so I can get a decent-looking Eskimos jersey!

In a nutshell, everything about the team is an attempt to be the Ottawa Rough Riders without calling themselves that.  They bought the rights to the name from Horn Chen, but Saskatchewan threatened legal action if they brought the name back.  Saskatchewan doesn't want any more Roughriders/Rough Riders confusion.

But the RedBlacks' colors are from the Rough Riders, the big-ass R they use is an italicized version of the Rough Riders' R, and so on.

Linkie thing

The gloves are stupid but the rest looks fine. RedBlacks is still a terrible name though.

ArkPanda: Won't those look like shiat on TV?


Not really. Do any team's helmets look amazing on TV? If they do, it's in a zoomed-in shot, which would show the plaid just fine.

Anyway, those look cool. Keep being on the "anything different is terrible" train. You can always watch the exciting Cleveland Browns helmets. Or any number of "plain colors + logo decal" helmets.

SlothB77: the logo across two gloves that only looks right if you hold your hands a certain way that almost never really happens in real life is stupid.


Why? The old ones didn't have anything; the gloves with the logo across them are a hell of a lot more marketable.

The stamps helmet looks pretty good actually...

Representative of the unwashed masses: The stamps helmet looks pretty good actually...


I wouldn't go so far as to say "good" - the lines pull it together in a way that makes it vastly superior to the Jags' version of the two-tone, but I think it would look better with a more gradual fade

Expansion team, this year.

Not very good, terrible name choice, but good sports city and a fancy stadium, so they have a shot at not going bankrupt for the third time.

Oh, thank God.

What they did to the Riders uniforms was even worse, IMNSHO.  Which is sad, because the uniform is the only thing I liked about that team.

Not looking forward to whatever monstrosity they come up with for the Stamps.

All in all, it seems that Reebok and Nike are trying to one-up each other in terms of how badly they can screw up sports uniform design.  Reebok started it with the edge hockey uniforms and vertical piping that everyone is already abandoning.  Then Nike's horrific Olympic hockey jerseys, now this.   And I won't buy any of them.

From those pictures, the Argos and BC uniforms are normal (though the Argos could use some more colour). And Reebok must hate the Riders, maybe they wanted Ottawa toget their name back instead of this travesty.

When the Riders wear these they look pretty sharp

I hope the Eskies get something better than the yellow set they had a few years ago...
